I also co-facilitate relationship retreats with my wife Felicia, who is a
licensed therapist as well. We assist couples to strengthen their
relationship through a focus on heart-centered sexuality.

“Let the beauty that you are
be what you do”
I provide individual therapy, couples therapy, marriage counseling and various
forms of experiential group learning including group therapy. I am a
specialist in relationship therapies and in somatic psychotherapy. I have
been practicing psychotherapy, in one form or the other, for thirty years and
have been licensed as a psychologist since 1997.
It is important to find a psychotherapist that works in a style that fits who
you are and what you want. I have designed this web site to give you a
general sense of who I am as a psychotherapist. Feel free to call so that
we can discuss how I can help and whether or not I am a good match for you.
I work relationally and in experiential ways that involve mind, emotions and
the body because I believe that this offers a powerful technology for change.
Symptoms, such as anxiety, depression and out-of-control anger, as well as love
relationship issues, are based on mind/ body/ emotion complexes developed in
early relationships. To be effective, change must involve a relationship
with someone who can help reweave these psychological structures, including
mind, body and emotion.
In addition to psychotherapy, I offer workshops and classes employing a variety of practices including mindfulness, movement and art.
