I received my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Kansas.

After 33 years and 40,000 sessions with clients I've learned that people are stronger and more normal than they feel they are. I combine cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic approaches to help them learn more about themselves and other people and uncover and respect their strengths and accept and work around their limitations. Clients say I'm easy to talk to and am accepting of whatever their goals and preferences are, and they say I'm not judgemental.

Research shows that people really don't like to be pressured so I just offer fascinating information about human nature and how people can be the happiest and most successful and let them use what they like and leave what they don't like.

People don't have to get into their childhoods or their secrets if they don't want to. They can uncover much hope, strength, optimism, and happiness without undoing childhood misery.
