Licensed, Experienced & Professional
Hi. I'm Mark Willison and I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I have been practicing on the Monterey Peninsula since 1983, providing counseling to individuals, couples and groups. Much of the therapy I provide is to adults experiencing difficulties with anxiety and / or depression, often associated with troubled relationships or transitions in life or work-related stress. Sometimes those conditions are so inter-related we don't even recognize it until we begin the therapeutic process.
Also important to know too, is that for 26 years I directed programs for the treatment of chemical dependency. I work with people seeking to find sobriety from drugs and alcohol. Of course, I work with family members and loved ones too when it comes to addiction and its perils.
Finally, I have been providing EAP consulting, corporate training and personal performance training for career or sporting activities for more than twenty years. Read more about my specialties and how I can provide support to you.
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 as a writer for a nationally broadcast television show. While fun and interesting, therapy work is what I love. I am married to a remarkable woman, I'm a pretty good golfer, yet still consider baseball to be America's pastime.
And now, I have a dog, Bogey, that sometimes comes to the office with me.
