Dear Visitors to My Web Site,
I take advantage of my own experiences in life, my personal quest for excellence as well as my schooling in psychology and my on-going studying, classes, reading and exploring to continuously develop new counseling techniques. My resources in understanding people and relationships are constantly renewed with the plethora of new knowledge and writings available every year in this pioneering profession of psychology.
THE NINE ENNEAGRAM TYPES: I started the trainings to qualify for the Enneagram Institute Certification. And, so far (starting in February 2013) I am more impressed with the Enneagram and the generous people associated with The Enneagram Institute than ever. Using this instrument for over twenty years has proven to be the most accurate and powerful tool for my skills and my clients. I always recommend that a new client or couple take the full-length version of the RHETI online for their first session. It just costs $12 on The Enneagram Institute website.
BOOKS: Here are a few of my current favorite resources.
“The Wisdom of the Enneagram: The Complete Guide to Psychological and Spiritual Growth for the Nine Personality Types” by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson.
Diana West’s well-researched book: “The Death of the Grown-up: How America’s Arrested Development is Bringing Down Western Civilization.”
“Awakening the Heroes Within” by Carol Pearson. This is a practical and fascinating guide to The Hero’s Journey with The Heroic Myth Index to help you determine which of the twelve stages are active in your life.
Some of my work has taken me into teaching a synthesis of archetypes (or roles) from the private and the personal (see my exercise identifying your unconscious life script which evolved from your childhood hero(s), to the cultural and universal (see Spiral Dynamics).
I designed this website to be useful to you even if you can’t come to see me in person in my office in Richardson / Dallas, Texas. I hope that you discover something here that helps you improve your quality of life.
I welcome you to contact me anytime. Simply call 214-636-5889.
My best to you!
