I believe that no one is broken. The only thing that is wrong is what we've been taught to think and believe about ourselves that stops us from being our true selves. Therefore, my goal is to empower people.
Since I am a therapist and a writer, I frame each individual as the main character in his or her life. As the hero or heroine, you are called to face adversity, overcome anxiety, transform your life, and find happiness. With Individual or Couple Counseling I help you become aware of yourself as the main character. Together, we identify the script handed down by your caregivers and work toward altering the script, changing relationships, and creating a story that serves your highest good to achieve inner peace.
Having grown up in a household with domestic violence, I have been committed to personal and spiritual growth. My personal story and beliefs are contained in my book, "The Roadmap Home: Your GPS to Inner Peace," that was an Amazon Bestseller.

More Info About My Practice
During the past 40 years I have worked both in Australia and America, as a therapist, writer and educator. I was Director of the Family Therapy Program at the Marriage and Family Centre in Sydney, Australia, and later worked with the Family Institute at Northwestern University. In addition to counseling, I conduct seminars on personal and spiritual growth.
My latest book is "Fighting for Love: Turn Conflict into Intimacy - A Couple's Guide," co-authored with Mari Frank, a mediation attorney.
My Therapy Focus
With couples I help them improve communication skills, reduce conflict, and increase intimacy. With individuals I help them reduce anxiety and depression, improve coping skills, and transform their life story to embrace more acceptance and love.
