Doug Ronning, MA, RDT/BCT


I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Drama Therapist/Board Certified Trainer recognized by the North American Drama Therapy Association. In addition to psychotherapy services, I also provide clinical supervision to pre-licensed practitioners and offer professional consultations.  I hold a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. I have been practicing psychotherapy since 2005 and working in private practice since 2009.  

For over five years, I worked with individuals, couples and families through Ohlhoff Recovery Programs, as Program Director for Ohlhoff Outpatient Programs in San Francisco and as a Counselor at the Skip Byron 28-Day Residential Program.  

Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I worked as a professional screenwriter, as well as in event planning and project management.  Through these work experiences, I utilized some of the tools for creativity building, effective communication, and stress management that I use with clients today.

In addition to my work as a clinician, I teach therapists-in-training as an Adjunct Professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies

In association with Teresa Brown, Certified Nutritional Consultant, I co-created and co-facilitate the Couples in the Kitchen workshops.

I also produce the event series Monster Movie Salon.
