I bring 50 years of clinical experience to my practice. I am or have been a training and supervising analyst at four psychoanalytic institutes. I practice intensive psychotherapy and prescribe medication if indicated. I welcome new patients. My approach is Existential , focused on healing, relief of pain and suffering and the search for personal meaning. I am the author of five books and several articles that describe my way of working with patients. I practice in Santa Barbara, California, but also work with patients at a distance via telephone, FaceTime, and Skype. I am the author of a now classic paper on psychotherapy at a distance.
