He has a mindfulness-based private therapy practice near Cedars-Sinai where he collaborates with individuals and families and facilitates support groups. Some specializations are support for those facing serious illnesses such as cancers and HIV and related medical treatments, those focused on returning to or sustaining their best state of health despite serious illness or chronic disease and those adjusting to loss, grieving, coming out or reconstituting identity after a major transition.
