(LMFT)

About Me

Welcome! I would be honored to work with you!

I am a psychotherapist (LMFT) licensed in California with my graduate degree in Expressive Arts Therapy from CIIS in San Francisco. I have many years of experience working as a counselor and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, sexuality, bipolar and ADHD. I'm sensitive to those who have suffered or experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I'm LGBT sensitive, and culturally aware. I also work with those in kink and alternative relationships.

Adjectives that might describe my style are: engaged, respectful, down to earth, relaxed, practical, mindful, insight-oriented, and solution focused. I lean more towards a collaborative, engaging and interactive approach so that feel you are not doing all the talking. I do my best to go at your pace and have a youthful, somewhat playful demeanor. I honor your innate intelligence and know that when you look within, you gain confidence in yourself and your choices. My goal is to support maintaining a big picture perspective, while you are processing through your thoughts and emotions. At times I might recommend reading a book, or give you a handout, or have your complete a creative assignment to deepen your process between sessions. If you believe in balancing mind, body, and spirit, then we might be a good fit for each other, as each is essential to the healing process.

Because your history and experiences are unique, I will do my best to meet you where you are. I want what is best for you just as much as you do!

I look forward to connecting with you!

Written by J.A. on Mar 23, 2020 after counseling with Douglas for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Douglas definitely helped me deal with my negative self-talk and cognitive distortions. He also outlined ways in which I lacked impulse control (which stemmed from the cognitive distortions and fear-based thinking).

Really enjoy working with Douglas. He complete changed my life outlook and quality.

Written by D.E. on Sep 19, 2019 after counseling with Douglas for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and anger management

Douglas has been instrumental to my peace of mind during these last three weeks. He’s shared books and articles, on top of always responding to my questions promptly, and I strongly believe his advice has made the most difference in this short time. I look forward to working with him each week and would recommend him with much confidence.

Written by C.H. on Sep 14, 2019 after counseling with Douglas for 1 year and 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Douglas helped me in a time of crisis, and I am very thankful for him. He is very good at helping in times of chaos, as he is able to help refocus energy and redirect thought. He listens well and has a very calming nature. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to sort out stressors and negative self talk.

Written by G.A. on Aug 22, 2019 after counseling with Douglas for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

Douglas has provided the “person to talk to” I was looking for when I found this problem. Our calls help me put things in a workable order and help keep me focused.

Written by T.I. on Jul 14, 2019 after counseling with Douglas for 3 months on issues concerning grief, and coping with life changes

Douglas has done an excellent job of striking a balance between staying in touch, and not smothering with questions/suggestions. His patient demeanor has helped me greatly, and I would recommend his services for anyone looking to get counseling for the first time. Thank you!

Written by A.N. on Jul 09, 2019 after counseling with Douglas for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and bipolar disorder

This past year was one of the hardest times of my life and Douglas has been a major part of helping me recover and grow from those difficulties. He has helped me improve my self-image, guide me through issues dealing with work, increase my self-confidence, learn to trust myself more, stand up for myself, and so many other positive and wonderful things.

I've had periods of lows and highs, but lately, I have been successful in keeping myself in the calm middle where I can face the bad in my life and appreciate the good. I have learned to accept that life will never be "perfect" and there will always be problems I will face both now and in the future. One of many things Douglas has helped me with is to not let the problems of the past get in my way. I no longer wake up thinking, "why did I say that? Why did I do that? Why am I so stupid? I could have done that better!". Now I wake up thinking, "It's a new day. That solution didn't work let me try something else. I can't control this but I can control that. I've been through so much already is this small thing really worth getting ruining my day/week/month?".

I would have never thought I would get to where I am today mentally, but here I am and I feel so much better, happier, and confident. I still get emotional, I still get upset, I still feel bad at times, but the big difference is those emotions don't linger and ruminate and churn in my mind for months on end and even years. I'm no longer "haunted" by past events, they have become my teachers. I'm no longer my own worst enemy either or my own worst critic and that alone has lifted such a major burden from my heart and mind. I've been using my energy towards being happier with my life and spending it with people I love. Instead of tearing myself apart and bringing myself down, I lift myself up and put myself back together.

BetterHelp with Douglas has been the best gift I could have ever given myself.

Written by P.O. on Jul 01, 2019 after counseling with Douglas for 10 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, grief, and self esteem

Douglas always takes the time to really listen to what I’m saying and respond in a way that does not pass on any judgment. It can be really difficult for me to open up and trust others, but he has shown me that he is someone I can confide in when I don’t always feel comfortable doing so with people in my life. He has offered great insight and advice for me to be able to reframe my thinking and gain a new perspective into myself and the way I react to and process information, and for that I am grateful.

Written by C.H. on Mar 23, 2019 after counseling with Douglas for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and family conflicts

I have always used the traditional way of counseling...aka face to face. But it was always difficult to set up an appointment at the time when you really need to talk to someone right now. Needless to say when i came across betterhelp.com i was very hesitant to sign up. But i had so much going on and really needed the help of a therapist. I was matched with Douglas Mitchell, and i cannot tell you how happy i am that i was matched with Douglas. He is an intelligent, well-knowledged, non-judgmental therapist. He doesn't sugar coat anything and tells you what it is...great listener and interpreter of events. He's brilliant and takes pride in his speciality and a real interest in his clients and their wellbeing. I highly recommend him to everyone. He has helped me become a better me. He (BY FAR) is more helpful than any other therapist out there and by far, SURPASSES any "conventional " face to face therapist out there. Thank you Douglas!!!

Written by A.N. on Feb 21, 2019 after counseling with Douglas for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Douglass is super personable and knows how to listen and offer advice without making me feel stupid about myself. And even when we don’t have a scheduled appointment he still takes time out of his day to respond to my emails within the same day whenever I need to talk. He’s very comforting and calming and has been a major help!

Written by F.R. on Feb 09, 2019 after counseling with Douglas for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Douglas is kind and responsive. He is careful to reflect back what he reads, and offers perspectives and strategies in which to approach situations without sounding judgmental or directive. I appreciate his warmth and attention to detail.

Written by A.D. on Dec 17, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and sleeping disorders

Douglas Mitchell (LMFT) is the best counselor I have ever had. I do strongly recommend him to everyone. He is very professional and understands exactly my concerns. He is always there to help, in a timely manner, professionally and effectively! And I know what I am talking about, as I am working in the Healthcare field as well! Thank you, Douglas! Bless you!

Written by A.N. on Dec 11, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Douglas was great! He reached out to me when I didn't. Meant quite a lot to me.

Written by A.D. on Sep 21, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 1 month on issues concerning depression, and addictions

Douglas is incredibly insightful and resourceful, devising a multitude of ways of tackling the issues you present him with. He's respectful and empathetic, but more than anything else, he is honest.

Written by M.A. on Sep 20, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Douglas is thoughtful, considerate, and patient. He gives good advice and has been a tremendous help.

Written by S.T. on Aug 27, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, self esteem, and anger

We are still a little new together, so it’s hard to comment thoroughly, but he is a genuinely empathetic person and has good insights. I like his perspective and maturity.

Written by S.A. on Aug 23, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, eating, and self esteem

When I first joined BetterHelp, it was with a different counselor. I did not have a very good experience as she was not very engaged with working with me. She was not very responsive and did not respond back to me for 10-days.

I decided to cancel my subscription but BetterHelp gave me 2 free weeks with a different counselor. I chose Douglas Mitchell based on his profile...I thought he would be the best fit, and he definitely is! Three weeks later with him and I feel more positive than I have in years. He is very responsive and will reply back to every one of my messages in the same time a friend would reply to a text. He has me work on worksheets that are very helpful to both of us. I might not be into all the worksheets but that’s okay, it’s a process. Basically, he’s showed me that I have all the answers inside of me...he just helps me to find the key to unlocking them. I recommend him fully. If his profile fits your needs, definitely give him your trust as he will help you find your best self.

Written by V.F. on Aug 22, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 6 months on issues concerning relationship

Words can’t explain the true professionalism and guidance that Douglas provides. I’ve had several in-person therapists, who were extremely helpful in my life, and I’ll happy to say that virtually I can add Douglas to my list. He more than listens to what say and finds ways to repeat back your own comments to think about things you didn’t know you were clearly saying. Worth every penny and worth your time. We all have a inner hero, Douglas hears it and helps us listen to it.

Written by K.E. on Aug 10, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 3 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and family

I like working with Douglas; he is very good at messaging and checking in when I need him.

Written by C.A. on Jun 25, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 2 weeks

Written by L.E. on Jun 18, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, eating, self esteem, and bipolar

Douglas has been an insightful and supportive council in the most distressing period in my life. His steady and levelheaded imput has literally been a life saver. I am profoundly grateful for his kindness.

Written by D.A. on May 31, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 5 months on issues concerning family, trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

My counselor is absolutely the best! I went through a very hard time in the past 6 months and he has always been there for me. He does not only "mirror" and normalize my concerns, (which are already very comforting); but also gives me tips and mantras that I'll remember and act during times of difficulties. Sometimes when I feel worried, I come back to this website, re-read our previous conversations and the advice he gives me, and carries on. He is absolutely wonderful and I am so thankful for having met my counselor.

Written by L.O. on May 17, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I've only been working with Douglas for a few days but he's been consistently checking in and replying to me several times a day. He clarifies what it is that I want to discuss and asks me questions about each of my concerns. Douglas has been wonderful so far and I'm excited to continue working with him because I see hope!

Written by G.R. on Apr 30, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 5 months on issues concerning grief

Douglas was incredibly helpful with my grief over a personal loss. He was sensitive and gentle in his responses, yet skilled at guiding me toward seeing things in new ways. Of course the grief is still there, but it now feels healthy and manageable instead of stifling, and I credit that largely to Douglas' expertise.

Written by W.A. on Apr 17, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

Douglas is kind but is sure to remain realistic.

Written by B.R. on Apr 16, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship

Even when I don't have specific things to work on, it is wonderful to have a completely neutral person to tell things to. I appreciate Douglas' perspective on situations, even at times telling you the truth you may not want to hear. He is patient, professional and a great listener.

Written by A.L. on Apr 11, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 2 weeks

Written by L.O. on Jan 08, 2018 after counseling with Douglas for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, eating, sleeping, and self esteem

My time with Douglas has been life changing. Thinking about where I am now to how I was feeling before I began counseling just a short while ago is such a great feeling. Before I decided to join BetterHelp I felt scared, lost and afraid. Douglas helped me sift through everything I was feeling and pinpoint the things that mattered.

Written by J.O. on Nov 24, 2017 after counseling with Douglas for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Getting paired with Douglas Mitchell was the single, most fortunate event in my life. He is patient, compassionate, and extraordinarily skilled at helping me to figure out serious, long-standing, life-crushing issues. If you get some time with Douglas...Guess what... You just got lucky, babe.

Written by N.I. on Nov 17, 2017 after counseling with Douglas for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and sleeping

There is a difference between what the counselor thinks is best and what is best for each individual client. The reason I like Douglas is he took the time to figure out what I wanted and told me how to achieve it. Yes, problems can easily have black-and-white answers, but life isn't like that; it is about the details, and he gives you those details.

Written by S.E. on Nov 02, 2017 after counseling with Douglas for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping, self esteem, and career

Doug is an awesome therapist. He is ultra responsive, supportive, directional and suggestive when needed. Gentle and a kicker in the pants at the same time. A great mix of humility, empathy, understanding and guidance.. I feel lucky to have found him on BetterHelp.

Douglas is an expert at creating a helping and healing relationship. He is wonderful in every measurable way. However, I mostly appreciate his sense of humor and playfulness during our therapy conversations. It eases my anxiety and allows me to heal faster. Thank you, Douglas!

Written by D.A. on Jun 22, 2017 after counseling with Douglas for 2 months on issues concerning addictions, relationship, and intimacy-related

Douglas is a great counselor. His replies are always timely. I feel my initial reason for talking to Douglas has been met and am now in a maintenance mode. Douglas checks in with me about once a week to see how I am doing. But I also know he is an email away if I need his help. I highly recommend Douglas!

Written by M.A. on Jun 22, 2017 after counseling with Douglas for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping, self esteem, and career

Douglas has quickly helped me to start putting my life back together. He is patient and gentle and he tailors his approach to my needs and preferences. He has managed to allay my fear of counseling in just a few weeks time. He has my thanks and my highest recommendation.

Written by S.T. on Jun 06, 2017 after counseling with Douglas for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, self esteem, and career

It's wonderful to be able to sit down when I have the time to communicate with Douglas.
He "hears" what I am trying to relay to him, and the advice being offered is sound.
So far, I am very much enjoying this experience on the whole. It's much nicer than 1 hour a week in an office, and pick up where you left off? I always found it most difficult to deal that way. So many unresolved issues. This is great, we can converse any day, every day, and I feel more at ease with my issues.

Written by S.A. on Jun 05, 2017 after counseling with Douglas for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, self esteem, and career

I've been so lost for the longest time. I never felt like I had anyone, but myself to talk to. I was afraid that no one would understand me. When I finally spoke to Douglas... It felt like the giant weight on my shoulder was being lifted ever so slowly. Day after day, the more I spoke to him, the better I felt about my problems and just in general - my life. I feel very blessed to have come across such an amazing individual. I am definitely going to continue my sessions with him. He has shown me a different outlook on how much happier, fulfilling and brighter my life can be. :) Thanks my friend...
