I am an experienced Gestalt therapist with over 30 years experience at the Gestalt Institute of Phoenix. I work with individuals, groups, couples and gay people.

I am excited by my clients being burned awake when psychological awareness evolves into spiritual consciousness. As a Tibetan teacher said ' participating joyfully in the sorrows of the world'. Sometimes the work is hard and unquestionably worthwhile. Thank God, inner meaning defies lostness and helplessness.

I work in a garden setting.

IN MY THERAPY APPROACH WE GO ON AN ARCHEOLOGICAL DIG TO SEE WHAT PAST WOUNDINGS HAVE KEPT YOU STUCK, INCLUDING DIFFICULTIES IN RELATION TO OTHERS.

WHEN YOU HAVE CONFLICT OR ARE IN PAIN OFTEN IT HITS AN OLD BUTTON OF PAIN AND THEN GETS AMPLIFIED.

I FEEL FOR MEN THE MOST PROMINENT ISSUES ARE ABOUT NOT BEING IN TOUCH WITH THEIR FEELINGS BECAUSE OF THE DEMAND FOR MASCULINITY. WHEN FEELINGS ARE BEING EXPRESSED MEN WILL OFTEN HAVE A SENSE OF DISORIENTATION OR WRONG DOING. THEN THEY FEEL ACCUSED AND THE CONTACT BREAKS DOWN.

FOR WOMEN THE ISSUES SEEM TO BE ABOUT ORBITING AROUND THE MAN AND NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND THEIR OWN IDENTY SEPARATE FROM A MAN. 

AND FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN IF YOU FELT ABANDONED AND/OR IGNORED BY YOUR MOTHER OR FATHER (EVEN WITH AN ESSENTIALLY INTACT FAMILY) YOU ARE LIKELY TO FEEL ALONE AND/OR UNWANTED IN THE DEEP PART OF YOUR BEING.

IN THERAPY IT IS HARD TO REVEAL YOURSELF BUT THE PAYOFF IS EXCELLENT. YOU EVENTUALLY GET TO THE DEEP WELL OF BALANCE AND CLARITY. AFTER SOME NASTY EMOTIONAL LAYERS THE CLEAR WATER APPEARS. YOU START TO COME FROM YOUR OWN CENTER ABD YOU FEEL GOOD.
