Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
30+ years harmonizing yearnings & values in relationships. Dealing with cross-cultural relationships, with past issues transformed into a path to intimacy, trust, and groundedness, free of overwhelming memories or reactions.

My method (in individual, couples, and family therapy) is relaxed and respectful, attentive to differences in temperament and ways of address issues, using various perspective to understand and integrate immediate and long-term concerns. I guide and encourage the development of self-respect, grounded understanding, compassion, good-will, and a fulfilling ease in dealing with life.

I am soft-spoken, attentive, and help people re-establish a sense of peace and perspective; am supportive of people’s yearning for well-being, helping them identify and resolve in a good-willed, nonjudgmental way the roots of conflicts and unfinished issues of life.

Advanced training in systemic family therapy and sex therapy, transpersonal and humanistic perspectives, and psychodynamic, attachment, and trauma theories.

Hour Sessions: 60 minutes
