Clinical Psychology

and Intensive, Sex & Relationship Therapy

I completed my first Ph.D., in Clinical Psychology, from the University of Southern California, focusing on intensive, cognitive-behavioral approaches to helping resolve sexual and relationship concerns. I then trained and worked for five years as a Clinical & Research Associate at Masters & Johnson Institute where the entire field of sex and relationship therapy was developed. I also participated in a training practicum in short-term therapy under Albert Ellis at the Rational-Emotive-Behavioral Institute.

Clinical Psychology and In-Depth

Intimacy, Relationship, and Individual Therapy

However, over the years, my clients have taught me that there is often more to their sexual and intimate relationships, and more to their individual lives, than short-term, intensive therapy can address. So I recently completed a second Ph.D. in the Psychology of Jungian Studies, examining sexual and relationship therapy from a depth perspective under the direction of James Hollis, Ph.D., an expert in the more profound dynamics of intimate relationships.

Integrating Intensive and In-Depth

Sex, Relationship, and Individual Therapy

Now I work with couples and individuals from whatever therapeutic approach is most appropriate to resolve their sexual and relationship concerns, enhance their intimacy, and enlarge their personal development within their relationships. I emphasize the integration of practical, here-and-now, sexual, communications, thought, and feelings management skills with more deeply rooted, dynamic explorations of their intimacy and individual concerns.
