Are you worried about self-defeating tendencies? Why do you get in your own way in relationships, at work, in school, or in expressing your inspiration and creativity? We look together at the barriers to success that interfere with productivity and peace of mind. Because I co-authored the book, "Procrastination: Why You Do It; What To Do About It NOW," (and because it took me six years to complete my dissertation!) I like to help people overcome procrastination and achieve their goals. My other specialities include: grief, trauma, relationship difficulties, sexual and gender confusion, low self-esteem.
I created the first Procrastination Groups for students at UC Berkeley. I have continued to work with individuals in private practice and have conducted procrastination workshops. In addition, over the years I have worked with people who have many different kinds of problems, issues that interfere with confidence, productivity, optimism, and peace of mind.
I co-authored "Procrastination: Why You Do It; What To Do About It NOW," in 2008. The first edition, published in 1983, sold over 150,000 copies and was featured on "Oprah" and "20/20." I have also published professional articles on the therapist's body, group dynamics in teaching, boundary violations, and clinical supervision.
