I am a psychotherapist specializing in individual and couples therapy and maintain a private practice in San Antonio, Texas.
With over 35 years experience as a psychotherapist, I am a graduate of Northwestern University, where I majored in Sociology and minored in Psychology, and New York University Silver Graduate School of Social Work where I specialized in clinical social work. As a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients, I have flexibility in scheduling and control of my patients' confidential records. Among my areas of expertise are the application of my advanced study of Transactional Analysis and Re-Decision Therapy to my work.
The psychotherapy I have done with people has produced documented results. I surveyed 10 years of patients to see if the therapy held up over time. The large majority of patients felt the changes they made with my help were beneficial and lasting.
In addition to my formal education, I have attended literally hundreds of seminars to enhance my therapeutic skills and knowledge. Highlights from this long list are my training in Transactional Analysis and Collaborative Law.
