I have worked for most of my career in the helping, management and consulting professions.  This includes work with individuals, couples and families.  I have also worked with small business, not for profit organizations and real estate investment management.  

My training includes 20 years with Stephen Gilligan, Ph.D in Generative Trance and Self Relations psycho-therapy; 7 years with Robert Dilts, Suzi Smith, Tim Halbom and others in Neuro Linguistic Programing (NLP).  I completed my Master of Social Work (MSW) at the University of Nevada, Reno in May of 2007, and have been in private practice at Carson Professional Group in Carson City Nevada since November of 2007.  I completed my clinical internship in June of 2010 and received my license as an LCSW at that time.  

I have developed a number of therapies including, Multi Dimensional Intervention (MDI) in 1993, the Picture Book Process in 2003, Relational Drawing and variants beginning in 2008.  Many thanks and deep gratitude to my many teachers and mentors.  These include Stephen Gilligan, Ph.D, Robert Dilts and his colleagues, (Suzi Smith, Tim Halbom, Todd Epstein, Judy Delozier and others), and Hugh Young Sensei, my primary Aikido teacher.  My father, an Episcopal minister and later marriage and family counselor and  my mother's life's work in early childhood education, whose skill with children are both fundamental to my approach.  I am the father of one wonderful and talented daughter, now creating her tremendous life working in the environmental field non nuclear and sustainable energy solutions.   

I love my work, to run the trails here, dancing, drawing and enjoy life here with my partner and colleague, Linda in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills.
