Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have more than 25 years experience as a group therapist in a variety of agency, academic and private practice settings, am a member of the American Group Psychotherapy Assoc., and am on the National Registry of Certified Group Psychotherapists (CGP). I have been teaching Group Dynamics in masters courses at JFK University in Pleasanton, and CIIS in San Francisco for over a decade. I have been offering this group during the past fifteen years and have a full-time private practice in Oakland specializing in problems of depression and anxiety. The group model I use for the Improving/Deepening Relationships Group integrates general systems and object relations perspectives in order to address transferences to other group members, to the therapist, and to the group as a whole system. The later focus is particularly valuable to dealing with embedded family of origin patterns of relating that influence current adult functioning.
