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, avoidance addicts, codependents
and couples. I am also a wounded healer which means I am a recovering
love addict and codependent myself. This is why I know healing is
possible and that my advice really works.

review of your case and a diagnosis, followed by an explanation
of our work together and homework assignments for the next session
this point on, the sessions are usually thirty minutes. Our time
together will be a discussion of how to treat codependency and love
addition. I do Transactional Analysis, also known as "inner
child work." I help people work the steps if they prefer that
treatment, but I recommend what we call psychodynamics (exploring
the relationship between your childhood issues and your current
codependency and love addiction.)

journal to the meeting to take notes and to do your homework assignments.
value of an email consultation 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 consultation
will be with you throughout the entire process . Then you can add
therapy with a professional to supplement your recovery. There is
no time limit. I will provide all the information you need to heal
and move on.
you send a payment, tell me your story and include a list of questions.
I will then give you an expert opinion about your situation, suggestions
on how to heal, information about healthy relationships, and the
answers to all your questions. The fee is $1/minute.
Love Addict: "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."

love addiction, I recommend my six-week course which includes a

Difference Between Psychotherapy
and What I Offer
is done with a licensed therapist. It can be defined in different
ways. Click here for a detailed list of definitions.
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.
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
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.
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.
