Counseling


Since the publication of my books, Addiction to Love and The Art of Changing, many people have asked me for my advice. I am happy to say that I have finally decided to hang out my shingle and make my services available. Please understand that I am not a therapist. I am a licensed teacher—with 38 years of experience helping people understand the nature and origin of their problems and how they can find the path to a better life. My specialty is working with love addicts and codependents, but I have had great sucess helping families and individuals heal from all kinds of dysfunction. I am also a wounded healer which means I understand from my own experience how to heal and change to become a happier, healthier adult.

Zoom/Phone Consultation

By appointment only:

$100/session (60 minutes)
$60/session (45 minutes)

$50/session (30minutes)

A consultation includes a review of your case and a diagnosis, followed by an explanation of what your recovery will entail.

From this point on, if you want to continue, our time together will be a discussion of how to recover. I do Transactional Analysis, also known as "inner child work" to facilitate pychodynamics—exploring the relationship between your childhood issues and your current neurosis.

Email me if you have any questions about what I offer. Please bring a journal to the meeting to take notes and to do your homework assignments. If you have scheduled a phone call, please call me. Once you have scheduled an appointment, please allow 48 hours notice for a cancellation unless it is an emergency.

Email Sessions

Email correspondence is also an option. The value of an email session is that you have a transcript of the infomation I provide for future reference. The first step in recovery is to understand what is wrong and what you can do about it. Recovery happens slowly in small steps. So a written session will be with you throughout the entire process . There is no time limit. I will provide all the information you need to heal and move on. The fee $1.50/minute.

Sample E-Mail Correspondsence

"You've been so helpful in pointing me in the right direction for my recovery. I love my therapist but she doesn't understand codependency or all the different kinds of love addiction." Judith

If you are a therapist or wounded healer and want to learn more about love addiction, I recommend my six-week course which includes a certificate of completion, It is based on the class I taught for 15 years. You will receive written material and homework assignments. The fee is $100.

How I Bill

The consultation fee must be paid in advance. Followup Zoom sessions and emails will be invoiced after our meetings,or once a month, at the rate of $1.50/minute. Your invoice will include an Excel file noting the time we spend corresponding or talking.

The Difference Between Psychotherapy
and What I Offer

Psychotherapy is done with a licensed therapist. It can be defined in different ways. Click here for a detailed list of definitions.

My background is in teaching. I am a licensed teacher in the state of California. My counseling takes my teaching to a personal level. It is to the point and advice-driven. I have studied psychotherapy enough to know when I should not be working with someone, so if I do engage with a client I may confront him or her directly rather than tiptoe around the problem.

My expertise is teaching people how to help themselves. I have been doing this for 38 years since I discovered I was a love addict and codependent.

Remember: There is always a brighter tomorrow. Trust me. I have been there. I know what the pain is like and what it takes to recover. It takes time and we must be patient. But we cannot do this alone. As they say in CoDA. We need each other.

Announcement: In 2014 I began working as a concierge teacher. I have been to Switzerland and my last client flew in from Germany. If you want to schedule this three-day workshop I can come to you or you can come to me. Each day we spend four hours together in a hotel room (10-12 am & 1-4 pm). Usually three days will be enough time to really get you started in recovery. You might call it a mini-treatment center with only you as a client. Contact me for more information.
