Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I see adults, adolescents and couples presenting with a range of issues. My clients deal with transitions in life, school, work and relationships; they may need healing from past abuse or current loss; they may be facing existential, identity or situational crisis. Living in an interracial relationship and raising children in that context has provided me with an understanding and valuing of both cultural and sexual differences. My background as an artist affords me a personal understanding of the creative process. I was trained in sex therapy at U.C. Berkeley's Cowell Hospital. After over 30 years of practice as well as teaching human sexuality courses at many Bay Area Graduate Schools, I have developed an integrated approach combining relational aspects and developmental history with behavioral cognitive work. My work is influenced by a social/feminist perspective, common sense and a good sense of humor.
