I am a psychotherapist in private practice since 1976. My office is in MarVista/West Los Angeles.
I use and teach Integrative Body Psychotherapy and Attachment Based EMDR. I use breath-work, meditation, guided imagery, voice dialog and anything else I can think of that helps. I teach my clients mental-health tools. I treat root causes – usually attachment injuries and sometimes the residual effects of early childhood trauma.
I work with adult couples and individuals, helping with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, addictions, adult survivors of sexual and physical abuse and relationship problems.
I was clinical director for 8 years at an outpatient drug program. Since 2004 I’ve been on the faculty of the Integrative Body Psychotherapy Central Institute in Venice, Ca. I currently supervise interns at Southern California Counseling Center in Los Angeles.
