Welcome to my site.
For the past 25 years I have helped people heal from childhood trauma, anxiety and domestic violence. I founded the California Center for Pastoral Counseling in 1994 which provided counseling for childhood abuse, domestic and gang violence. We utilized cognitive and mindfulness based modalities. We also provided advocacy and mediation for victims of clergy sexual abuse. Many of the abuse situations I dealt with had a deep spiritual component and in 1999 I became an ordained Episcopal priest. As a priest I continued to work with trauma and abuse survivors. I also began working with family and organizational systems which led me to be trained as a mediator in both sexual abuse and family systems.
I have seen people experience freedom from stored trauma and unhealthy behavioral patterns and live with more vitality, peace and joy.
As an ordained Episcopal priest, pastoral counselor, professional mediator, hospice chaplain and spiritual director I provide a safe, caring, compassionate and confidential environment that allows people to voice concerns, face trauma and abuse and create a place of hope and healing.
