A high percentage of my therapy patients are themselves therapists. I am proud to have a longstanding reputation among my peers for excellence in my work. Other professionals are perhaps uniquely qualified to discern and choose their own therapists, and I am happy that they frequently choose me.
I enjoy opportunities to share my clinical knowledge with other therapists. I have supervised many trainees and interns, and have taught classes in clinical supervision for MFTs and LCSWs. My expertise is in psychodynamic work, with a particular interest in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. I especially welcome inquiries for consultation from therapists who are relatively new to the field and wanting to feel more confident clinically. I also offer help in transitioning to a more psychodynamic way of working to therapists who have worked in other modes in the past.
I welcome calls from therapists interested in either brief consultations or ongoing appointments. Once we have established a connection, it often works well to do the consultation sessions by phone at a mutually convenient hour.
I also offer consultations to therapists wanting to incorporate knowledge of the Enneagram as a tool in their work with patients. The Enneagram is a system of understanding personality types and the particular habits of mind characteristic of each of them. Whether or not the patient is aware of Enneagram typology, the therapist can have a significant advantage in being able to think from the perspective of knowing this ancient system for understanding human strategies for survival.
Calls regarding appointments are welcome at my private voicemail: 650-325-2576.
