About Mark


I am an experienced IPSA-Certified Surrogate Partner currently practicing in San Francisco and mostly work with female clients. I also work with men, trans+, and disabled clients, regardless of sexual orientation.


I am able to work with your current therapist or I can recommend one for you. If you have any questions, would like to know more about the process, or would just like to put a voice to me, please email me for a phone number.


Potential clients and therapists are invited to contact IPSA (the International Professional Surrogates Association) for an independent verification of my credentials and status in the organization and the profession.



I bring a non-judgmental attitude, comfort with my own sexuality and body, and intuition to my work. I create an atmosphere of warmth, care, empathy, and trust with clients of various ages, issues, and genders. I have been trained by the International Professional Surrogates Association (IPSA) and follow their code of ethics, which can be found at



My fees are similar to what you pay your therapist. Inquire regarding my sliding scale.

Session Length

Sessions are 90 minutes in length. The number of sessions varies depending on clients needs and is generally between 5 and 20 sessions.
