Individuals - Children - Teens - Couples - Executive Coaching

Welcome to my psychotherapy and coaching practice.

I work with women and men who are frustrated, unhappy, and angry in their relationships with their partner, boss, parent, or any other significant relationship.  These frustrations can take the form of feeling controlled, treated as “less than” or intimidated, having your feelings ignored or ridiculed.   This is one of my specialties and involves working with what are sometimes called "difficult partners."  A significant part of this work involves increasing self-awareness to explain why we get angry so that difficut behaviors that upset others can be identified and changed.

I also work with children and teens who struggle in school, with parents (defiance), with peers, and who are dealing with anxiety, depression, cutting, tics, ADHD, and high-functioning Autism.  I have worked with thousands of children and teens over the last 25 years. This work can involve helping parents reduce their frustration by learning a different way of parenting using rules, chores, and consequences.  It turns out that children or teens want these new ways of parenting but hate to give up the power they have accumulated.  But, they do give it up and family relationships improve.

I use CBT interventions to deal with anxiety, panic attacks, and trauma, and repeated exposure (memory) therapy for PTSD-like traumatic experiences to reduce uncomfortable or frightening reactions triggered by current events and negative thoughts. 

I help clients with communication skills and teach them how to create strong boundaries in relationships.  This can make it easier to be successful with difficult people, whether it’s a partner, boss, stranger, or other family member.  

And, I provide depth psychology to offer insights to patients who want to work on a deeper level to better understand why they do what they do and to make changes in their lives. 

I also bring over thirty years of corporate and business experience in technology, manufacturing, marketing, finance, and project management, and provide consulting to women and men who are facing challenges in their careers.

Individuals and Couples 

I believe that you deserve to be happy, loved and respected.  

Are you sometimes frustrated, angry, anxious, depressed or hurt because you feel ignored, put down, or not good enough?

Do you "walk on eggshells" or fear confrontation? 

It doesn't have to be that way.  

Call me for a free consultation at 760-766-1622

Teens and Pre-Teens

Does your child or teen feel frustrated or angry in school, or at home?   
Are you also frustrated or angry?

Are homework and grades a struggle? 

Is your child or teen defiant?  Does he or she help around the home?

Does she or he get angry when they don't get what they want?

Is your pre-teen or teen exploring or questioning their sexuality and struggling with who they are, or, are they already farther down that path?  

Call me for a free consultation about what is happening at 760-766-1622.

 

Depth Psychology

My approach to depth psychology can help you understand why you struggle in life now and how your early childhood experiences taught you unhealthy ways to deal with current issues.  I explain why you keep repeating past relationships that are unhappy and unsatisfying.  It is also important to know that almost all of this is completely unconscious: you are not to blame; you do not purposely make decisions to be unhappy or frustrated.  

The problem is that we don’t realize we repeat old behaviors with different people and get similar results.  This can be very confusing and frustrating.  I explain why this is so and what you can do to stop repeating past behaviors and avoid getting the same (unhappy) results, especially with romantic partners and family members.

Information You May Find Useful
FAQ

How often will you come in for sessions?

That’s a good question. I have found that, in this work, just like trying to build strength or improve your golf game, you get better with more frequent sessions. That usually means weekly though, at times, there may be a need or desire to come in more often. Working on yourself less frequently than once a week doesn’t offer you the chance to make changes in your life; conversely, when you are in need, more frequent visits help you to get through a difficult period.

How long does it take?

This is difficult to predict. I ask clients to give the process at least 12 sessions for the process to start making a difference.  You should expect to feel somewhat better in the first 12 weeks and you will begin to notice changes and have more awareness.  However, most issues have deeper roots and dealing with those issues takes time.

Do I take insurance?

The answer to that question is complicated based on your situation. Insurance companies require a mental health disorder diagnosis to cover the costs of treatment. Many of my clients prefer to deal with their insurance companies on their own or not to submit my invoice receipts because they want to protect their personal information. There is no way I can guarantee the confidentiality of your personal information once it leaves my office.  

I am a provider for armed service members and their families through TRICARE. For all other clients, I provide a "super-bill" for my services, as an "out-of-network provider" that you can submit that to your insurance company for reimbursement.  If you have a PPO medical insurance, your reimbursement may be from 30%-60% of my fee for "out-of-network" providers.

What are my fees?

The fee for a 50-60 minute session is $180 for individuals, teens and family sessions.  Extended sessions are prorated based on the 50-minute fee (at $3.60/minute).

Couples sessions are scheduled for 75 minutes at a fee of $270.  

I do offer a sliding scale for patients and for patients over 65.  (I am not a Medicare provider)

How do you pay me?

I take Zelle and credit cards to pay for the session at the beginning of each session unless otherwise agreed to.

How do you reach me if you have to?

The best way to reach me is to call our office voicemail [760-766-1622] and leave a message. I will be notified that you left a message and get back to you as soon as I can. I am not available after 10:00 pm or before 7:00 am. If you have an emergency, you need to call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Room. When in doubt, please act in your best interests and for your own safety. 

About Me

I am a grandfather, have two grown daughters with families, recently married 25 years ago, and like to solve problems, cook, garden and exercise.  I am becoming a vegetarian (finally, after all these years) and like it.  I plan to practice well into my nineties.  I am also male and recognize that "we" are often the "weaker" sex emotionally and have a lot to learn about ourselves and that we can improve with good feedback from a loving partner.

I have worked with thousands of children and teens since 1997 in school settings and in my private practice.  I respect and enjoy these young adults and have learned much from them.

With over 30 years of experience in banking, consulting, financial services, manufacturing, marketing, project management, product development and technology, and over 23 years as a licensed psychotherapist, I offer insight into dealing with business challenges and "difficult" people.  

My background in technology, aerospace, banking, financial services, operations and management includes:

  • Technology (IT) and product/project development for a large California bank, an aerospace company, and the largest credit card marketing association in the world
  • Multi-year and multi-million dollar budget project responsibility
  • Operations and Manufacturing consulting for multiple divisions of an international conglomerate producing business and military aircraft, space aircraft, consumer radio and television products, software development, and building tools 
  • Executive Director of a mental health organization
  • Management positions in multiple and diverse corporate organizations in Southern and Northern California
  • Managed multiple levels of employees in large corporate environments
  • Served on the board of a $500M credit union for ten years and several boards of mental health professionals for the last 12 years
  • Licensed as a Marriage Family Therapist helping clients ranging from 4 to 95 since 2001
  • BA in Economics and an MBA in Marketing from UCLA; MA in Counseling from JFK University

THE NO SURPRISES ACT

A Good Faith Estimate will be provided to patients for recurring services scheduled within the calendar year.   

More on the No Surprises Act:

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.

The No Surprises Act (H.R. 133) went into effect on January 1, 2022,
