The Cure for Love


I have been dedicated to thepractice of psychotherapy for over thirty years. I work with a variety of adult psychological issues, including mood disorders, PTSD, addictions, personality disorders, relationship conflicts, and adult developmental adjustments. A particular focus of my practice is in marriage therapy and couples (of all constellations) counseling.

After 36 years of practice in Santa Monica, I have closed my office there. I am continuing in private practice at my office in Santa Barbara. I will continue to be available to any patient that I have seen at my Santa Monica office, either by phone, Skype, or by appointment in Santa Barbara.

I am accepting new patients in Santa Barbara. The link above should help you contact me should you wish an initial consultation.


The Cure for Love, my novel about "life's greatest affliction", is available at as both a softcover book and as an e-book, as well as in selected bookstores. The novel explores the conundrums of love in the context of a story about a therapist, his male patient, and that man's mercurial and fascinating fiancee. You can click on the Cure for Love page (above) and read an excerpt from the novel. Articles that I have written for magazines and newspapers can be found online and are archived on this website. I am currently working on a second novel as well as a non fiction book (Sexparlais: How to talk to your mate about sex).
