A truly therapeutic procedure cannot have less an objective than the whole of mankind.

Thank you for looking me up on this website. My motto is, "Life is a Beach." I love my work and thank God that Psychodrama found me at an early age and that I was wise enough to reciprocate the choice.
Moreno believed that relationships bring out the best and the worst in us. Consequently all the training that I conduct nowadays I do with a partner, with whom I am always better, than when I am alone.
I do not provide clinical services anymore but I do co-lead several different training groups and personal growth workshops.
Nina Garcia and I co-lead one on-going training group in West Palm Beach Florida. The West Palm Beach group meets five times a year between September and May. We also lead a summer weekend and weeklong residential training group in Stuart, Florida. You can find out more about these training opportunities by clicking on our website.
John Raven Mosher and I co-lead a four-day weekend Psychodrama Men?'s Personal Growth Group in Seattle each January and June.
