Multi-Dimensional Therapy: Six Resources for Healing
- Presentations –
providing an overview of the six resources for healing.
- Workshops, Seminars, and Consultation  - 
on utilizing the six resources for healing to assess strengths, deficits, and dysfunctions, to clarify options for work with patients as a basis for developing, implementing and refining a treatment plan.

Sexually Addictive Behaviors and Intimacy Disorders
- Assessment – utilizing interviews and online assessment questionaires developed by Patrick Carnes  to clarify current difficulties and past history so as to  assess the extent to which a person may have sexually addictive behavior, and, if so, the options for overcoming this problem.
- Consultation –
regarding issues in treatment of individuals, couples and families
- Collaborative treatment –
in situations in which a clinician is treating an individual and needs a referral for the spouse or the couple, or in situations in which a couple is being seen for therapy and an individual therapist is needed. To the extent that  clients are willing to give permission for communication, I prefer to work collaboratively on behalf of our shared clients.
