My Philosophy

My practice is based upon a foundation of:
a) Ethical principles of honesty and integrity, necessary for a safe therapeutic alliance to flourish
b) Solid grounding in well accepted and proven therapeutic theory and practice,
c) Continuing education to stay abreast of the most recent discoveries regarding new and effective ways to help people change and solve problems preventing them from living healthy, satisfying lives
d) Providing quality service to a diverse population of people all of whom deserve an opportunity to live a good life if willing to work for it and
e) Joint responsibility on the part of therapist and client, both working towards the achievement of agreed upon goals and dreams.

My Mission

My mission as a psychotherapist is to make whatever contributions I can to improve the quality of life on Earth for all those who wish, in good spirit, to take advantage of the many gifts and opportunities that this life can offer. The more people there are who live with some degree of Self-awareness, Self-discipline and an ability to develop their “Higher Loving Self,” the greater the chances are that people will make the choices necessary to improve the human condition for themselves and for those living around them.

My Vision

It is my hope that as neuroscience, medicine, science, psychology and spiritual disciplines provide deeper understanding of the brain, the mind, our thoughts, emotions and impulses, we humans may learn to better participate in true dialogue with each other, listening to understand, choosing to love, rather than waiting to prevail and dominate.
