Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in several areas:
  • EFT for rapid emotional relief
  • Relationship, with yourself and with others
  • Men's issues. I have led men's groups for 16 years and taught workshops as large as 400 men.
  • Spiritual practice: working with awareness itself, rather than the contents of awareness. Developing presence, clarity, inner peace. I have been doing spiritual practices for 30 years and been a student in the Diamond Heart School for 16 years.

    Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

    I am in private practice, delivering telemedicine via Skype and FaceTime or by phone. My area of special emphasis is helping people improve their important relationships, and working with my clients to decrease and stop depression. If you are reading this, chances are one or more of your important relationshps are not working very well. Whether it's difficulty with a partner or spouse, teens or parents, friends or co-workers, a troubled relationship is painful.
