I live in Portland, Oregon now although I had a psychology practice in New Mexico for 25 years. My specialties are working with trauma, emerging artists, and somatic psychotherapy and EMDR. I love to grow vegetables, cook, walk, read, practice yoga and gyrokinesis. As a guest I'm generally calm and appreciative and don't need a fancy environment. I love nature, music and art, and have an active family life with my partner of 27 years. I have an old dog, a young dog, and a cat plus 3 grandchildren. Healthy living is something I try to pay attention to, and respectful interactions with others matter to me. I have travelled around the world as much as time and money have allowed, and appreciate diversity and experiencing other cultural traditions. If I had to choose a religion it would probably be music. Of all the precious things there are, time to experience life is the most valuable thing to me.
