About

Personal issues often show up in relationships where we get caught in freeze, fight, or flight reactions. Friendships, colleagues, family, and intimate partners are our best mirrors leading to effective personal work in therapy. My experiential three-fold model of problem solving integrates mind, body, and emotions. We begin with the description of a problem or struggle, identify associated emotions, and locate the way the issue is held somatically. This may develop into a visual or symbolic representation with which one can dialogue, apply insight, antidote and release, or reveal deeper targets that need to be reprocessed.
Client-Centered listening, Narrative Therapy, and Guided Imagery are my primary techniques. I am also trained in EMDR therapy for healing trauma, a therapy that processes 'frozen' experiences that are still causing problems and integrates new ones that enhance healthy functioning. EMDR is also used for performance enhancement. (see www.emdria.org for more information)
I am Full Professor and Chair of the Counseling Psychology Department at Dominican University of California teaching graduate level counseling psychology courses to those aspiring to be Marriage and Family Therapists. I also specialize in mindfulness groups and am a trained facilitator in Rothberg's Working With The Judgmental Mind.
