Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In 1970 I began treating families, couples, children and adolescents in Los Alamitos, CA. Presently, I primarily focus on couple counseling including sex therapy and treating families with illness, aging issues and traumatic stress. I practice with my two Cavalier, King Charles Spaniels, Duke and Romeo for pet therapy, comfort and crisis response. I enjoy working with adult families dealing with their parental aging process and related issues or illness. I also treat cancer patients and their families, and others who suffer from chronic diseases. I recently retired, as Adjunct Professor of Psychology for Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology. I have conducted workshops throughout the world and written books and articles on couple's counseling and animal assisted therapy and crisis response. I am a Certified Supervisor and a past president of CAMFT.

I have helped hundreds of couples recognize the hidden obstacles that cause pain in their relationship and learn the skills needed to deepen the quality of their relationship as well as resolve conflict. For over twenty five years I have been working with heterosexual and gay couples. I do not believe in a one -size- fits- all approach to therapy.
