More Info About My Practice

I work with a female co-therapist within the couple's structure. We have more than 25 years experience in working together. Lori and I had been directors of an eating-issues residential treatment program for 13 years and directed the Masters and Johnson Marital and Sex Therapy Institute and their trauma programs. We also have extensive experience working in residential addiction programs.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

To examine the way one is living one's life. To help the individual become more "themselves," giving him/her a greater capacity to love - to give and receive love more expansively and fully.
