Personal note (continued):

From 1984 to 1986, I taught at Stanford University, where I developed a seminar on how individual psychological issues play out in religious life. I also received training in short-term psychotherapy at the Mental Research Institute, Palo Alto. From 198687, I worked with child cancer patients and their families at the Ronald McDonald House at Stanford Children's Hospital, and from 198789 with abused children and their families at Eastfield Ming Quong Residential Treatment Center. At the Center I received training in structural family therapy and took further training in chemical dependency issues.

In 1989 I moved to Houston, Texas. During 1990 and 1991, I served as supervisor and teacher of therapists-in-training at the Family Service Center. From 1992 to the present I have maintained a private practice, using an integrative model of psychotherapy that spans both brief solution-oriented therapy and longer-term psychodynamic work.
