I have engaged clients across a range of cultural backgrounds and classes, and all are strongly influenced by early experiences where their characteristic interpersonal responses were laid down. These response patterns can be altered in revisiting them, as John Lennon said, "Feel your own pain"
There are a number of disservices that therapists generally visit on clients: among them, the implication that if there is a part of you that you dislike, just give it an eviction notice, and it will leave. Also, they may imply that you are not the person primarily responsible for your own self-care

I was a family therapist in Hawaii for a number of years and decided to continue my work at UCLA. I participated in many research projects there and at University of Utah. Mixed in was a military career, ending in a two-year assignment to Europe. I always felt the need to learn something new and encounter people and experiences that were entirely new. More recently, my rediscovery of a passion for helping has led me here.
