MY BACKGROUND

My interest in psychology began in high school while living in London, England. At the time I was reading Freud, R.D. Laing, Gestalt, B.F. Skinner along with many others. While in London, I completed an understudy course where I worked at a halfway house for adults who were suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma and the onset of schizophrenia.  Years later, I continued to pursue my interest in psychology, and while in New Mexico, obtained a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling. At the same time, I worked in a treatment center for adolescents and adults as well as a psychiatric hospital. I also worked as a clinical director at a group home that focused primarily on the Native American population.  At one point I had the opportunity to work at a treatment center that specialized in DID, Dissociative Identity Disorder (known at the time as "Multiple Personality Disorder"), sexual abuse, and other personality disorders. During this time I began a private practice, which continues to this day. I also worked as a family therapist for the New York High School System. As a "cross-cultural" kid growing up overseas, I was able to experience and have a greater understanding and awareness of the diversity of people, their thinking, behaviors, and their culture. This global experience has helped me greatly in my practice of healing others. 

MY APPROACH

My approach in therapy is to see the whole person - the dynamics of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual - to help the client by integrating all these and find balance in their life. All of us are affected by our environment, meaning our relationships such as family, friends, our culture, physical environment and so forth. I see our lives as always being in relation to someone or something. The greater depth of our understanding, the greater our peace of heart. Life is not easy, so as my client, I wish to provide a relationship to you wherein you can safely discuss and share the problems and difficulties you are currently facing. My wish is to see you grow in your own awareness and confidence of your life. 

YOUR BENEFITS

As my client, you will develop a balanced sense of self, and strength to face challenges on your journey of life. You will learn and gain insight to yourself that will provide direction or transition for your present and future.  My spiritual background as a Zen Priest with formal training and practice will help you convert these issues into strength and spiritual growth. I can also provide you with meditation techniques, which will benefit you throughout your life, helping you achieve relaxation and peace.
