Short Description (199 characters max)
Humanist-Existential Psychotherapist providing counseling and psychotherapy for individuals and couples for over 38 years.
Description (2950 characters max)
For over 39 years my career path has encompassed varied aspects of the human services field. After being discharged from the Army, where I received my initial nurses training, I attended University of Southern California and received a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology in 1976. My first professional position was with the LA County Sheriff’s Department as a staff psychologist, working with the deputies and their families. After that my nursing and counseling careers became intertwined. I worked as a methadone clinic director helping heroin addicts; worked as a nurse in Acute, Skilled Nursing Facilities and Hospice; worked as both a nurse and counselor at the Rehabilitation Institute of Santa Barbara; provided counseling services at Child Abuse Listening and Mediation; worked in the developmental disabilities field primarily as an administrator but also as a nurse and counselor; I also have provided classes/lectures in local forums, national and international forums . During the last 39 years, except for a few years, I have always had a private counseling/psychotherapy practice working with individuals and couples. On a personal note, I am married, have 4 children and 6 grandchildren. I have been blessed with an exceptional and diverse career that has helped me immensely in relating to a wide variety of people and, because of the skills learned along the way, helped them change their lives.

I am now enjoying working as a full time counselor/psychotherapist in Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo and also a part time instructor at Allan Hancock College.

Therapeutic Orientation

Humanistic-Existentialism – emphasizing taking personal responsibility as a way of taking control of your life and your problems. Rather than encouraging a passive victim role, the focus is on taking a conscious, active, responsible role in the problem. This empowers the person in dealing with their issues.

Although my orientation is grounded in Humanistic-Existentialism, because of my exposure to various forms and types of therapies over the years, I will also draw from what ever approach I feel will work best for you.
