Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have a successful psychotherapy practice in the Napa Valley since 1983. The major emphasis of my practice is the treatment of eating disorders, addictions, bipolar disorder and depression. I have special training in sex addiction treatment. I have been in recovery since 1981. Being in recovery gives me special insight into treating people with addictive problems.

My approach to psychotherapy is eclectic. I use whatever approach works! I am very pragmatic and practical. I am also patient and empathic and understand the struggle in gaining insight into oneself. I do refer for medication evaluations when necessary.

I have been married for 17 years and raised a step-daughter since she was 7 years old. She graduated with honors from UC Santa Cruz and is now happily married, studying to become a math and science teacher for high school students. She is also a pilot! It was not all rosy for us as a family and at times we required family therapy to help us get through some rough spots.

I really believe in therapy as a way to heal. It does not replace a spiritual process. But therapy used properly can relieve symptoms, and give a person a healing relationship that enables them an anchor so that they can do things in life that perhaps they never could have done before. Sometimes a person only uses therapy once. Others go in and out of therapy. Some decide to stay in therapy as it gives them a support. Whatever choice is made, it works!

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
