COUNSELING & COACHING

Founder & Director: The Relationship Institute - West Palm Beach & Boca Raton, FL & Fairfield, IA

Creator: Re-Integration Therapy


I've been a psychologist and relationship coach/counselor ("The Relationship Doctor") for 31 years.  I specialize in working with non-traditional lifestyles (bdsm, naturism, polyamory, tantra, swinging, lgbt, etc.).  I'm one of a small group of counselors across the country who are more than open-minded or "friendly" toward these lifestyles, but have actually deeply explored most of them and can understand the energies and dynamics from direct personal experience.  


EDUCATION

Ph.D. in counseling psychology, University of Chicago

Ph.D. in vedic psychology (initiated teacher of raja yoga, meditation, ayur veda, tantra), M.E.R.U. - Seelisberg, Switzerland

Ordained Minister - Universal Life Church - offering pastoral counseling


OTHER WORK

I've taught on the faculty at 7 universities & 12 educational organizations.

I'm an author, speaker/educator, international workshop leader, and a music therapist through my company called "Drums for Life".


LIFESTYLE EXPERIENCE

(1) I'm a well-known and respected bdsm player, performer, and educator, drawing large and enthusiastic audiences for my scenes mixing the erotic, the energetic, the loving, the humorous, and the spiritual layers of life.   My scenes have been photographed and published in American and European BDSM magazines.  I've won top awards at BDSM competitions and been asked to give educational talks and demonstrations for groups and play spaces around the country.  I've been a member of bdsm support groups for 20 years; I was elected to the board of directors of the former south Florida group (SPICE) as education director, and I also helped found a bdsm play club in Washington, D.C.


(2) I've lived various forms of polyamory all my adult life.  I was a founding board member and program director of CPN - the poly support/education group for the Washington D.C./Baltimore area, and I currently organize the PolyConscious South Florida Meetup Group with over 300 members.


HOW I WORK

I work with clients in person (in south Florida) and by phone and Skype all over the world.  My rates are very reasonable ($60/hour), and I'm very easy to talk to.  I'm also famous for my complete discretion/privacy and my deeply non-judgemental attitude.  Our first session by phone is free (to get to know each other, and to hear about your goals).  My work is solution-oriented, short term, deep, and effective.


INVITATION

Please call me and we'll talk.  I'd be honored to be of service.  561-350-3930
