One of my specialties is working with men and with couples to improve their relationships.
For the past 40 years, I worked in Australia and America as a therapist and educator. I was Director of the Family Therapy Program in Sydney and later worked with the Family Institute at Northwestern University. I help individuals overcome anxiety and depression & help couples improve communication, resolve conflict, and increase love & intimacy. Since I am also a writer, I frame individuals as the main characters in a story, called to face adversity, transform their lives, and achieve personal happiness. I am the author of "The Roadmap Home: Your GPS to Inner Peace" & co-author of "Fighting for Love: Turn Conflict into Intimacy."

I work well with clients with anxiety, depression, grief, loss, aging, and other challenges. I do all of my work online and I work from my home office. This can be a challenge for some people, but most clients that I have come to appreciate the privacy and convenience of meeting online. I mainly use zoom for my sessions. I work to understand the challenges that each person is facing and develop a plan specific to each situation. I welcome the opportunity to help you. I am a Medicare provider.

*I AM ACCEPTING NEW ONLINE CLIENTS* So much about our current circumstances is out of our control. We've been placed in situations we did not expect nor plan for. As a result, our levels of anxiety, depression, and disconnect from ourselves and each other may be higher than they have ever been before. Not only can these events affect us as individuals, they can also cause stress to our relationships with our significant others, children, and extended family. I want you to know that I am here to help in these stressful times.

The symptoms most clients present with that tend to be identified as the problems are actually the solutions their mind has developed in response to past experiences that changed their belief(s) about themselves, others, the world around them, or all 3 in an unpleasant way. These solutions seen as "symptoms" are well intentioned and usually meant to remedy a lack of safety, control, connection, or to avoid acknowledging more unpleasant thoughts, feelings, or beliefs. In spite of these good intentions these efforts tend to elicit the very things they are trying to prevent and prevent the very things they are trying to obtain for us

Struggling with addiction and feel rehab isn’t an option? Leaving your family, job, school and responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on track. If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, I know the challenges of this lifestyle. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard--feelings of fear, failure, guilt, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. Breaking this cycle alone is tough! Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab. I specialize in moderation & abstinence based approaches.

"We're all just human beings doing the best we can, the best way we know how." That resonated with me a long time ago. It is where I got stuck. It may be where you are. Striving for that ideal of perfection. It is a mirage and can show up as depression, anxiety, stress, etc. I want to walk with my clients through the discomfort and help them to achieve whatever goals they may have on the other side.

What type of Dana Point mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Dana Point?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
