As a counselor, Rev. Tony bring a wealth of life experience and especially expertise in open relationship. He is an out bisexual, polyamorous person – a lifestyle for which he has been a spokesperson,  for over two decades. He approaches all this through the ACIM teaching lens of Special Relationships versus Holy Relationships. He also has extensive knowledge and decades long experience in the mental health and wellness fields, and leads groups in a mental health, self-help discipline name Recovery International. He approaches his counseling sessions with great empathy and humor. Counseling can be done in person (if local, in the San Francisco area) and by phone (if not local). Rev. Tony works on a sliding fee schedule between $50 and $80 per session. Call or email for more information:
