After a personal tragedy, I volunteered as a grief counselor. This experience showed me first-hand how people can find relief and grow in strength from even the most profound suffereing. I was inspired to help guide people through this process. I left my job in the high-tech world and enrolled in the Masters in Counseling program at Santa Clara University. Afterwards I received extensive training in couples and family therapy at the Mental Research Institute in Palo Alto, where I am now Assistant Director of the Family Therapy Center. Based on this and other training, I have been helping clients for over ten years improve their relationships, overcome depression and anxiety, and work through the devastating effects of loss and trauma.
On the personal front, I have been married for over 40 years. My wife and I raised two wonderful children and we are now enjoying the pleasures and priviledges of grandparenting three grandsons.
