My Approach to Helping

From our initial contact, the referral person(s) and I begin the assessment process. That is, we set about to determine what issues need attention, and if and how to proceed. This process gives the person(s) an opportunity to determine whether we are relatively comfortable working together. It gives the person(s) an opportunity to determine whether the assessmentapproach makes sense, and whether they have beginning confidence in my competence. I believe that trust, a sense of safety, and mutual respect are vital parts of the helping relationship.

I have been practicing counselingpsychotherapy with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples for 35-plus years. I am affiliated with "Our Counseling Office" associates. I have been adjunct professor and supervised at several universities (including NAU for 12 years), and have consulted to numerous institutions and individuals throughout my career

I have a Ph.D. in psychology (Loyola Univ.) and an MSW (Univ. of Pennsylvania). I am a graduate of the Chicago Institute (4yrs.) and did extensive work at the (Chicago) Family Institute.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

I bring to the work specialized training and extensive experience working with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples.

As I perceive and approach the referral and treatment task it is: (a) To clarify and define the internal and interpersonal issues that are causing the person(s) pain and distress. (b) To set about to find ways to mitigate, change, and if possible eliminate such sources of distress. (c) Simultaneously help the person find new, conflict free, self-enhancing ways to live.
