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 (around 90 minutes per session). If you really feel this could be helpful, but you can’t afford $500, please fill out the form below and include information about your financial situation and what you can afford to pay.

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