Professional Consultation & Training
I provide personal and professional consulting and training services to fellow mental health professionals, including graduate students in the helping professions, with particular sensitivity to the ethical and professional subtleties inherent in our field.
I assist leaders in developing and understanding the unique ways in which they may capitalize on their social roles to influence organizational culture, group behaviors, and the stability of their inner lives. My approach to executive consultation stems from systems psychodynamics, including consideration of adult development, group dynamics, and open systems theory. The coaching process I employ involves a deepening exploration of roles, boundaries, systemic and non-rational processes, as well as the exercise of power and authority as these manifest in one’s work-life.
My organizational interests include the psychosocial effectiveness of intensive, educational interventions; effects of technology and globalization on organizational development; executive coaching; and, group and institutional dynamics.
