Marriage Counselor

"Steven Cohn. . .Relationship Specialist and MBA is no slouch . . . keep in mind, this is a man who is equally comfortable creating computer models for financing a $100 billion hospital in low Earth orbit . . . and living with indigenous peoples of Borneo to study the psychological impact of deforestation."

Steven M Cohn, PhD, MBA, LMFT

I have a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute near Santa Barbara, CA home of the Joseph Campbell Library, the James Hillman archives, and the Marija Gimbutos Collection. And I have an MA in Clinical Psychology from John F Kennedy University, in Berkeley, CA. My education included training related to individuals, children, couples, families, and groups. Clinically I specialized in becoming a marriage counselor at one of the country's premier private training facilities: Pleasant Hill Counseling Center (Pleasant Hill, CA).

Additionally, I have an MBA degree from the WP Carey School of Business ("Top 50 Business Schools," US News and World Reports) with an emphasis in finance. Coupled with my training as a marriage counselor, my finance knowledge proves helpful for couples seeking to understand their emotional challenges related to money and work; and, how those challenges play into relational conflicts.

My post doctoral education and training is devoted exclusively to relationships. I have trained with some of the leading authorities in the world, including both Dr. John Gottman (of the acclaimed Gottman Institute) and Dr. David Schnarch (the first recipient of the Professional Standards of Excellence Award from the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists). I also completed training courses in Emotionally Focused Therapy with Dr. Sue Johnson and Certified Sex Therapy Informed Professional (CSTIP): Integrative Sex and Couples Certification Training. I am also trained in, practice daily, and teach mindfulness and meditation.

I have lectured at Stanford University and have been called upon as a relationship consultant, appearing on, KATU 2 TV, and KOIN 6 TV. I have also written and published training materials for graduate psychology students with permission from the American Psychiatric Association.

If you have any questions for me about my practice as a relationship specialist or would like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to give me a call. I look forward to hearing from you.

For your convenience, I have included my resume.
