Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have had extensive training in Relational Gestalt Therapy, and work from an approach emphasizing the use of the therapeutic relationship as a primary agent of healing and change. I believe that the challenging work of personal growth is best accomplished in an atmosphere of caring and support. I have also had training and experience in working with adult survivors of molest and other childhood trauma. Able to work effectively with those wanting long term, life changing, psychotherapy, as well as those wanting short term counseling for support in dealing with a specific issue. On the Court approved lists in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties for Child Custody Evaluation and Court Mandated Co-Parenting Counseling. Author of book "Divorcing Peacefully: Why It's Essential and How To Do It".
