I love my work! For forty years I've been astonished, and feel like a "therapeutic mid-wife," collaborating and witnessing people give birth to new ways of growing to become more of who they really are, with less pain and more happiness. Although I work with any issue, I am particularly effective with the most difficult therapy to do well, Couples Therapy. Over the years, I have trained therapists at UCSF and various Doctoral programs, and half of my practice includes therapy with therapists themselves. I enjoy integrating with 12 Step Recovery when appropriate.
I have trained with many creators of powerful therapies: Family Systems, NLP, Hypnosis, EMDR, Gestalt. As the youngest Charter Member of the American Family Therapy Academy in the 1970's, the Founders of the field were my colleagues. I integrate many methods and practices into an active and unique blend.
I've led treks into the Himalayas and studied with Buddhist & spiritual teachers including Thich Nhat Hahn, the Dalai Lama, and Ramesh Balsekar. I've taught therapy to professionals internationally. I do Therapeutic Family Reunions, Family of Origin Work, and EMDR with Couples/Individuals. Full 60 or 90 minute sessions.
