Thanks for your interest in me and my world!
live a mostly quiet life in my cottage in Sherman Oaks, a suburb of los Angeles.
I'm semi-retired; I still do everything
we did in my holistic wellness Center, The Revitalization Center, in the late 70's, 80's and early 90's.
favorite work is the talk-therapy which I have been developing over my career. I combine cognitive analysis with deep experiential
techniques. I also, occasionally, do naturalistic complementary bodywork. In my Center I pioneered many useful techniques
to restore body balance. I work primarily with the muscles, various flow systems and nutrition. When your body is in balance,
your mind is more relaxed. When your mind is more relaxed, your body rests more easily in balance.
I have particular experience
and interest in philosophy, anthropology, psychology of all types, hard sciences, the arts and outdoor activities.
feel free to contact me if there is any way I can be of service to you.
