I had a thriving private practice in Los Angeles for over thirty years.
I worked from various proven psychological theories, including but not limited to those historically known as Psychoanalytical and Objects Relations, to Gestalt, Rogerian, Behavioral, Strategic and Cognitive Theory...plus the most modern concepts from EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to Mindfulness-Based concepts from Buddhist teachings.
My understanding of how the brain, mind and body interacts comes from various insights taken from theorists such as: Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Carl Rogers, Erik Erikson, Alfred Adler to modern-day scholars including but not limited to Eric Berne, James Masterson, M.D, John N. Briere, Alice Miller, Aphrodite Matsakis, Francine Shapiro, and Fritz Perls. I consolidated all of these methods and practices in an effort to make the best of what has been proven and accepted by the psychological community.
I specialized in the treatment of emotional issues in high-functioning adults many of whom have experienced childhood abuse, neglect and/or molestation.
I was a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with a Master of Arts Degree in Psychology from Pepperdine University in California and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications from the University of Illinois.
In addition, I have consulted with a variety of businesses, athletic teams, city governments and organizations researching consumer trends and facilitating team-building, advertising, marketing, and strategic planning.
