"I specialize in treating trauma, stress, and burn-out. If you're in a high-pressure career, are a survivor or witness of violence, or just struggling to keep your grip -- don't let your private guilt & worry hold you back from finding sanctuary. You can heal and enjoy your life again, it just takes commitment. I've been there myself, in some of the most stressful situations in the world: investigating violent crimes as an LA Sheriff's Deputy Detective; teaching special education classes for emotionally disturbed young people; comforting battered women at emergency shelters; treating chronic mental illness in community clinics."

"The best psychotherapy is tailored to the individual, not limited by a single theory or point of view. All the evidence on psychotherapy confirms that the most important contribution to success is the therapeutic relationship. As an experienced practitioner I know this to be true. I practice using approaches that are integrated and tailored for each person and situation. Whatever perspectives are found to be helpful, I consistently attend to providing a relationship that is safe, mutual, nonjudgmental, and non-controlling. It is an accepting relationship built on mutual understanding and evolving trust that helps us all."
