Consultant & Speaker
I am also a frequent lecturer and keynote speaker, a consultant to businesses on issues ranging from leadership skills to anger management, sexual harassment, and Alpha Males in the workplace, and an ardent advocate for disability rights and issues of infertility.
The issues that are of the greatest concern for me, parenting, mediation, kindredness, childhood and adolescence, men in midlife, fatherhood, sexuality, infertility and adoption, have evolved over the years, and reflect a wide range of human experience.
I enjoy sharing what I have learned by writing articles for professional publications, and by being available for radio and television interviews. My doctorate in psychology is complemented by an MBA in marketing, a combination that supports and contributes to my integrated approach to therapy, teaching, and life.
I have offices in San Francisco and Palo Alto. You may schedule a appointment, check my availability for speaking engagements, or request a fee schedule by leaving a message at either of the two phone numbers below or sending an e-mail.. Individuals & Couples Therapy
As a psychologist in clinical practice for over 30 years I have learned to take a present rather than a past-oriented approach to therapy:
*What do you want to happen NOW?
*What steps do you need to take to achieve these goals?
*What stands in your way?
*How does your understanding of your past (positive or negative) help and/or hinder your desires in the present?
*How do you want to see the trajectory of your life unfolding?
*How do you imagine your life ending?
*In the time you have left what are the things that matter most to you: your relationships,your family,the things you have accomplished with your life,or things that are still left undone or unsaid?
I want to work with people who are asking these questions - individuals and/or couples who have a serious commitment to making both their personal and professional lives more effective and rewarding.
If you are such a person or couple,please c ontact me and we can discuss whether this is lifework you are interested in pursuing.
