Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been providing therapeutic services since 1979 in this San Luis Obispo County. I have worked with children ages 3-17. I have run groups for latency age children and teenagers. My method of treatment is non-directed play therapy for young children and a cognitive-behavioral approach for oler children and adults. My work expereince is varied. I have had experience with adult individuals, couples, and groups. My areas of expertise are grief and loss, life transitions, addiction, domestic violence, women's issues, men's issues, and the treatment of children. I am fluent in Spanish and have had numerous Spanish speaking clients. Being a male therapist in a predominantly female field, I feel that I offer a male perspective when dealing with the therapeutic issues confronting a variety of clients.
