Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I do psychotherapy with individuals, couples and older teens. I treat perpetrators and recipients of domestic violence; adults who were neglected, battered or molested as children; and men on men's issues such as numbing, avoidance of intimacy, excess work, survival after a breakup, self-care, self-management, and being a good enough dad. I also do psychological assessments and expert witness testimony on the effects of domestic violence. I don't give advice. I don't tell people what to do. I invite people to reflect on how their problem behaviors may serve some unrecognized purpose in their inner lives or in their relationships. I support self-observation, awareness of blocked emotions and acknowledgement of old, unhelpful behavior patterns. I encourage people to tolerate strong emotions and effectively calm and soothe themselves, without destructive acting out. I foster an attitude of curiosity, respect and compassion toward one's self.
