Counseling

In the decade since Sex at Dawn came out, I’ve received many requests for advice of one sort or another. Often, people have offered to fly to me for a chance to talk for a while. I’ve always avoided these opportunities since a) I didn’t feel qualified to be offering advice to a stranger, and b) How awkward would that be, to meet someone for a drink after they’d spent hours on a plane for a chance meet me? Their disappointment seemed certain.

Well, the times, they are a-changin’…

After years responding to listener emails on my podcast (many of them requests for advice), and a year of COVID-enforced familiarity with Zoom, I’ve come to the conclusion that if someone REALLY thinks I can help, why not give it a shot?

If you’re interested in scheduling one or more sessions with me, please read the following carefully before submitting your information –

I’m not offering psychotherapy. I have a PhD in Psychology and a couple of books, but I’m not a licensed therapist. Whatever expertise I bring to this is the fruit of a lifetime of travel, introspection, study, personal experience, and paying attention. That’s it.

I'm only scheduling two sessions per week, so I’ll be very selective about whom I work with. To avoid wasting each other's time (or your money), I’ll need you to describe your situation in detail, addressing specific issues, so that I can judge whether or not I can actually help. If I don’t think I can offer any value, I will tell you that. No charge for my time.

Because this isn’t psychotherapy, it won’t go on for weeks or months. What I envision is just a few sessions, at most. I’ll need enough time to get a sense of who you are, what your situation is, and give you my honest assessment of what I see. If you’re not ready for that kind of input, I’m not your guy. Because my time is very limited, and this will not be a drawn-out process, the fee is $500/session (at least 90 minutes each).

Still interested? Please fill out the following information in as much detail as possible, and I will be in touch.
