Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
For the past 25 years I have specialized in the treatment of perpetrators of domestic violence and adults who were abused as children and have conducted trainings on these issues nationally and internationally. I have also testified as an expert witness in capital, domestic violence and malpractice cases.

Today my practice consists of psychotherapy services for individuals and couples who are experiencing a variety of mental health issues, incorporating attachment theory and neurobiology.

I have served on the Ethics Committee and the Board of Directors of CAMFT. I am a recipient of the CAMFT Distinguished Clinical Member Award.

I am the author of books on domestic violence including, Learning to Live Without Violence: A Handbook for Men; Wounded Boys/Heroic Men: A Man's Guide to Healing from Child Abuse; and The Court-Mandated Perpetrator Assessment and Treatment Handbook.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
