I am a licensed psychologist and the director of West County Psychological Associates (WCPA). I began this practice in 1986 after having worked in education for twenty years. Previously, I had been an elementary teacher, and then a counselor and Guidance Director at Lafayette High School.
Because of my familiarity with working with elementary and secondary schools, we, at WCPA, began working extensively with numbers of schools in the form of training and consulting with administrators and teachers through Care Teams, doing presentations for parents in regard to effective child rearing and consulting with various business and educational groups. I have also taught counseling/psychology classes at Webster University, Fontbonne University, the University of Colorado, and the University of San Francisco.
One of the great joys of my life has been being able to practice therapy in a way that I believe has long-lasting and effective results. I believe that a good therapist never stops learning. I also believe that the efficacy of therapy comes from the relationship between the therapist and the client. The therapeutic relationship is the basis of what creates change. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with pre-adolescents, adolescents, adults, seniors, and couples. My hope is that this work has been helpful to my clients. I am fortunate in that it has also given me great satisfaction.
