About me

I am a psychotherapist and life coach with 40-plus years of experience who is committed to helping individuals and couples.

As a therapist and award-winning author of 7 books, I help individuals and couples see themselves as the main characters in their lives. Whether they are called to overcome anxiety or depression, improve relationships, overcome stress, or find happiness, I help them identify the script handed down by caregivers and work to alter scripts, change relationships, reduce anxiety, and create life-affirming stories.

I have worked both in Australia and America, as a psychotherapist, writer, and educator. I was Director of the Family Therapy Program at the Marriage and Family Centre in Sydney, Australia, and later worked with the Family Institute at Northwestern University. I have been at the forefront of men’s healing for the past 35 years, and my latest book, co-authored with Rick Broniec, is "Power Tools for Men: A Blueprint for Healthy Masculinity.” My TEDx talk on fatherhood was viewed over 110,000 times.
