A Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 1992, I have treated a private practice clientele since 1990 when I was an intern. The only interruption was a seven-year break during which I pursued other interests.
I have worked as a therapist and counselor for a community mental health clinic, a foster family reunification program, and a K-8 school. I have trained interns and taught therapy and counseling in a university graduate program.
Since 1971 I have practiced meditation, tai chi, and chi gong.
An Oakland native and lifelong resident of the Bay Area, I live with my wife in Berkeley.
I love my work. People who want to improve their relationships energize me. So much of what I have learned, and continue to learn, comes from hearing the stories and witnessing the healing of my clients. I have worked with some amazing people and am grateful for the opportunity to play a role in their victories.
