Q & A, Stories of those I've helped and Technical writings

I originally trained & worked as an Anthropologist before re-training to become a Psychotherapist. My work facilitates a person's location in the world of everyday life and in their own history. I have worked extensively to reduce unproductive conflict in individuals, couples and small groups & businesses (I've even treated a rock & roll group's rehearsal conflicts). As an anthropologist, I am sensitive to and respectful of alternative cultures, lifestyles and beliefs as well as  cross-cultural assimilation struggles.  After all, one culture's "magical thinking" is another's access to the world; one person's "distortion" is another's central organizing principle.  I work with abusers and the abused -- physical, sexual and emotional -- as well as victims of incest,  assault and loss of freedom for political, social & other beliefs and lifestyles.  My style is centered on the needs of the person(s) with me and on facilitating their life's journey.

"It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end."


Ursula K. Le Guin

In view of the powerful events experienced in the USA on 11 September, 2001, I've included a new article in the Writings section. It is entitled Coping With Powerful Events.
