If the whole world is a stage, as Shakespeare said, what part do you play? Are you simply acting out a part or are you living the part you want? Helping clients narrow the gap between their dreams and their real lives is a major thrust of my work. I help individuals, couples and families to both pinpoint their hearts' desires and figure out the best way to attain these dreams. A lifelong student of the human personality, I presented my original research on behavioral inhibition at Oxford University. My work was published in Oxford's professional journal, THE FORUM.
