Mark Falls, PhD – (707) 525-9300

I have been in the field of psychology since 1985, when I received a Masters Degree in the Marriage and Families Studies and subsequently became licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist. In 1989, I received a Doctorate in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Studies and was licensed as a clinical psychologist in 1992. In my 30 years in the field, I have had the opportunity to do clinical work in the following areas:

  • Adolescent and adult psychotherapy
  • Families in crisis
  • Transitioning from married to divorced
  • Family adjustment to divorce
  • Parent coaching of young adult children who “Fail to Launch”
  • Group therapy specific to men and anxiety
  • Mindful meditation training and integration into psychotherapy
  • Early addiction recovery coaching
  • Intervention facilitator for adults and adolescents
  • Consultation to parents with adolescents transitioning home from residential treatment
  • Drug and alcohol use/ abuse education to local public and private high schools for students and faculty
  • Relationship intimacy building
  • Sports and fitness psychology
  • LGBT issues specific to addiction and recovery
  • Critical incident and disaster response
  • Training and supervision

I founded and have directed the KIDS OFF CHEMICALS, (now called NEXT STEP) an intensive outpatient program for adolescents and their parents for the past 20 years.

I am very excited to bring all the best clinical approaches in NEXT STEP to the families of Sonoma County.
