PERSONAL AND EFFECTIVE CARE
Psychotherapy is about freedom: freedom from suffering, freedom to improve what is working poorly in one's life and freedom to develop as an authentic human being. It's also about exploration within a relationship where safety and trust are established; feelings are honored; pain is healed. My commitment is to listen carefully, provide support, understand your concerns, help you to gain insight and guide you to identify available options while respecting your right to make your own choices. My style: engaged and interactive. Capacity for empathy: substantial. Methodology is always matched to individual, couple and family needs.
Areas of specialization include addictions, anxiety disorders, depression and a range of issues including life transitions, self esteem, intimacy and commitment.
Depth of experience and deep compassion, coupled with pleasure in making a difference in people's lives accelerates the process of resolving problems and supports movement toward growth and development.
A doctoral degree in Psychology (California Graduate School of Family Psychology, 1983) and Master's degrees in both Counseling Psychology (University of Hawaii, 1973) and Systems Management (University of Southern California, 1972), coupled with decades of clinical experience, provides the context for personal and effective care.
