Solution Focused Therapy, Consulting & Training

Practicing Since 1987

Hi. I’m Mark Willison and I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I have been licensed and practicing on the Monterey Peninsula since 1987, providing counseling to adult individuals and couples and to young adults 15 years and older. Over these 35+ years and in the thousands of hours I’ve spent with my clients, it’s always a privileged to witness the joy one experiences when personal discovery is attained.

Life Keeps Changing!

Much of the therapy I provide is to people experiencing difficulties associated with a major change in their life. This change might be due to a relationship break up, job loss, a move or from dealing with a serious disease, or a loved one’s struggle with illness. Change can cause a work-life imbalance, severe stress, high anxiety, and depression.

A Bit About Me

I went to school where I grew up in Bakersfield, California. I received both an undergraduate and graduate degree from the university there and did additional graduate study in hypnotherapy at UCLA and UCSB.

When I first moved to the Monterey Peninsula, I made my living as a photographer and then, as a writer for a nationally broadcasted television show. Yet, therapy work is what I love. I am married to a remarkable woman, l am an avid photographer, I enjoy hiking and I’m a pretty good golfer, yet I still consider baseball to be America’s pastime.

If you’re looking for solutions to feeling better and believe I can be of help to you, call me.
