His practice specialties focus on areas such as assessment of parenting capacity, clinical supervision, trauma specific therapeutic intervention, assessment and treatment of sex-offenders, violence proneness risk assessments and psychological services for law enforcement agencies.

In his professional career of 40 years, the practice approach has incorporated Solution Focus Treatment, Ericksonian approaches, and Mindfulness as a clinical resource with an appreciation for culture, diversity and creativity within the individual.

Reflecting upon my 40 some years of professional practice, it is difficult to capture the sum of those experiences and, in many or few words, my best efforts to capture my life and professional learnings is that the roots stem from Ericksonian Therapy and Act and Acceptance Therapy approaches by which I strive to be pragmatic, innovative, and client-centered in my collaborative dialogues between myself as the clinician and clients thus stressing resource discovery and the development of Psychological Wellbeing.
