The real voyage of discovery consists not
in seeking new landscapes,
but in having new eyes.
— Marcel Proust

Gestalt has been an approach to living and a way to work, professionally, as a licensed MFT for 30 years. 

Although I came to this approach in my late 30’s, I had been interested in existential philosophy since my college years in the 50’s.  The meeting of both a philosophy and an approach to doing psychotherapy seemed a blessing to me.  The Gestalt early pioneers had designed a methodology that took the existential principles and gave us a way to actually do this form of therapy.

My private practice is small and my roles include the training and supervision of interns. I have an ear to the ground for the changes in the gestalt field. I've been involved in a national gestalt association and have had an article published in the Gestalt Review. 

In my past I have had many opportunities to work with a variety of clients from many different walks of life, and my years at the Stanford Medical Center and the Dept. of Psychiatry as a Volunteer Clinical Assistant Professor have given me a background in community mental health, as well as clinical work in a therapeutic community.  This background led me to organize a clinic in San Francisco associated with the California Institute of Integral Studies with the emphasis on Existential-Gestalt therapy.  At this Institute I joined the core faculty in 1993 and retired in 2014, teaching Gestalt Therapy
