Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I see the general goal of therapy as helping people become better managers of their inner world. This is the one arena where we have a realistic chance of change. The specific goals of therapy depend upon a person's needs and desires.

My aim with couples is to assist them in their efforts to become more caring and understanding partners. I find that self-understanding helps achieve this goal. I have been strongly influence by the work of John Gottman and Harville Hendrix.

My background in theology and religion enables me to assist those who are religiously and spiritually grounded better use these resources in their healing. I never force any particular religious perspective on a client and I am comfortable working with persons who are not religious.

I take psychotherapy very seriously as a healing art. This means it is informed by modern science, but its goals and process should not be dictated exclusively by science. Psychotherapy, which has the potential to assist individuals in their quest for a more fulfilling life and a greater sense of peace and joy, is hard work for both client and therapist. It is a process that takes significant time and steady effort. There are no realistic quick fixes, no crash courses.

I have the background and experience to enable me to work with individuals, couples, and families, at the appropriate level of depth needed to resolve current frustrations as well as any old issues that may feed into the present situations.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Carlsbad, CA

I provide a therapeutic environment that allows individuals and couples to explore ideas, beliefs, life experiences, thoughts and feelings that may stand in the way of being who you truly want to be. I can help point out repeating dysfunctional patterns that may exsist in relationships at home, at work and with friends and family.I teach people how to respond in their lives versus getting caught in reacting to personalities and events.
