Welcome to Yokoyama Therapy! I'm Ben, a licensed marriage and family therapist offering tele-therapy from San Francisco, CA.
As a somatic psychotherapist, I honor your body’s natural healing ability and will help you build bridges to access this healing, both in and out of session. I use Brainspotting, EMDR Therapy and the Neuro-Affective Relational Model (NARM) to address the psychological, emotional and physical impact of distressing events. Trauma therapy helps you to metabolize the painful residue from the past so that present day triggers are no longer inappropriately distressing and so that you can make meaningful and powerful choices to manifest a different way of being in the world.
My work is informed and enlivened by my own personal and professional experiences of diversity. I draw on my personal (as a person of color, gay, first generation born in the US) lived experience in exploring the impact of social and environmental stressors faced by minorities on an ongoing basis. I would be honored to have a conversation with you about how I may help you access your unique healing process.
Taking the next step
Engaging in psychotherapy is a powerful way to invest in yourself and your growth. I offer a complimentary 20-minute video consultation, in which I will ask you some questions to learn what is motivating you to seek help, and you can ask me any questions you have. Together we will decide if it makes sense to move forward and meet in person. All services are provided online via video conferencing.
