Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My early experiences with Fritz Perls and Gestalt Therapy grounded me in a "here and now" existential framework. My own psychoanalysis and training at The Insitute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis have given me a good understanding of the dynamics of the interaction between therapist and client and the value of that relationship in helping the client to heal and grow. As an Adjunct Faculty member of Antioch Los Angeles' Masters in Psychology program for over 15 years, I have taught many courses which deepened my understanding of the theory and praocess of psychotherapy. Couples Counseling has been an abiding interest and I offer a practical, effective, empathic approach to relationship difficulties. I have been mediating since my college days, and have studied (and taught) many approaches to developing an inner spiritual life. When it fits a client's needs, I introduce some of these techniques and ideas into our work.
