We focus on play/sand therapy, child development, family therapy, CBT, Psychopathology, military, parenting, suicide, teens, infant to 18-years and family adult counseling.
As a parent/caregiver, a certain level of stress is normal, however when your stress level becomes unmanageable, it is time to seek professional support. I help infants and their parents; individuals and their families repair the effects of trauma and stress in their lives. I believe the earlier we address emotional, developmental, relational, social and individual (behavior) functioning, the better we can assist the family or individual to make life-long changes.

My paramount specialty as a Life Crisis Doctor focuses on people suffering major attachment loss -- relationship, job/career, or health. Loss of such magnitude can trigger Major Depression with its overwhelming feelings of fear, desperation, and darkness. I know this terrain from the inside, having survived two separate near death experiences. I first guide people in crisis through its dangers and pitfalls so that they survive their ordeal. Then I guide them through the transformative opportunity created by the Crisis which has cracked them open, making accessible their gifts, their medicine -- contributions to the community from their Real Self.
