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
Temecula, CA

I’ve been in private practice in Temecula since 1990. I work with individuals, couples and families on a variety of issues, using a straight-forward approach to problem solving. While I listen with empathy, I am an “active” therapist, meaning I make suggestions, give direction and homework to partner with my clients so they can solve their problems in a timely, effective manner.
