I enjoy working with adults who have been successful in their fields and yet have come to an impasse in how they think of themselves in terms of self esteem and self respect. My clients often question the significance of their lives and how loved they are by friends and family. These doubts often have their origin in their birth families and can be alleviated by an in-depth understanding of their role in their families.

I specialize in group psychotherapy for psychotherapists and for adults. My therapy group for therapists is a rich context in which clinicians can reflect on the meaning of their lives in the presence of peers. My groups for lay people create space for deep work on early childhood redecisions that lead to more satisfying lives.

I have had the opportunity to work and collaborate with some of the founders of both group and family therapy (Virginia Satir, Don Shaskan, Fred Ford) and Joe Fabry, a close associate of Viktor Frankl, a founder of existential therapy.
