I am a licensed psychologist (PSY25154) with more than nine years of experience in clinical psychology after a long career in providing organization development consulting services to more than 45 organizations through my own company. My therapeutic approach includes traditional psychodynamic/psychoanalytic therapy coupled with a specialty in orgonomic biopsychotherapy (Reichian character analytic therapy).
My education includes the following:
• PsyD Clinical Psychology: California Institute of Integral Studies – San Francisco, California
• MA Clinical Psychology: California Institute of Integral Studies – San Francisco, California
• MS Industrial & Organizational Psychology: University of Central Florida – Orlando, Florida
• BS Chemical Engineering: University of California, San Diego – La Jolla, California
My hope is to bring true mindbody (orgonomic) psychotherapy to as many people as possible, and, especially to bring this unique way of working into organizations that so desperately need this kind of guidance and healing. The focus of my work is longer-term, depth therapy that addresses root cause rather than just reducing symptoms.
I am happy to present "Fundamentals of Orgonomic (Reichian) Therapy" and "What's it Like to be a Patient in Orgonomic (Reichian) Therapy?" to interested groups.
I specialize in providing character analytic and orgonomic (Reichian) psychotherapy to individuals, couples/dyads, adult families, and groups
I offer intense process groups for intact work teams (executive/senior management teams, boards of directors, etc.) as well as individual leadership therapy and personality conflict management
I offer workshops, titled "The CFO in the Therapist's Chair," to help therapists run their practice like a business
Areas of Expertise
Are you having relationship issues with your partner, a family member, or coworker? Sometimes substance use or infidelity or control is in the mix. Maybe your partner just can’t activate and “get going.”
Are you feeling anxious and nervous, unable to settle down, relax, and feel safe?
Maybe you feel socially awkward and unsure of yourself, and that your self-esteem and confidence is shot to the point where you have trouble making your own decisions. Maybe you feel badly about your own body and you find that you are harsh with yourself, constantly seeking others’ approval.
Do you struggle with substances, depression, or feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by a chaotic and unmanageable life? Maybe you’ve had some major changes in your life recently.
All of this can result in health problems in your body, difficulties in freely and gracefully expressing emotions, and isolation and loneliness.
I am a licensed psychologist (PSY25154) with a focus on depth therapy that gets at the root cause of these sorts of struggles rather than just reducing symptoms. I also offer orgonomic (Reichian) therapy as an integrated treatment with talk therapy. This somatic approach does not artificially differentiate between mind and body, psyche and soma, but instead treats you as a whole person. I work with individuals, couples, adult families, and groups.
