Bio
I was born in Holland, educated in the US and traveled around the world for several years experiencing and studying various cultures before moving to Hawaii about 25 years ago.
I'm very happily married and am "Mr. Mom" to two wonderful girls aged 7 and 3.
I help with the home-schooling of my 7 year old and work part-time so as to have plenty of time (time=love) for my girls...

Profile Summary:
Individual and Family Therapist Honolulu, HI

More About Me
I have always been interested in human and animal behavior, Social Psychology, and Family Dynamics and Therapy.
I have been a Buddhist since age 17, spent many years doing Yoga and meditation, lived in a Buddhist monestary for a time,and have always been interested in figuring out and applying tools for improving the lives of others.
I moved to Hawaii because I love the people and mixed Asian culture and the beautiful Natural environment, and have replaced meditation with surfing.
Surfing has been my passion for 25 years now; I surf most of the surf breaks around Oahu, and consider myself a "soul surfer"... and it is through surfing that I commune with Nature, and find Peace.
I love animals and consider myself to have a special talent at communicating with and training dogs...
Work Experience:
20 years doing Psychotherapy, across a wide spectrum of clients ranging from "Schizophrenics" in maximum-security hospital settings to teaching parenting to families with ADHD kids to helping resolve adjustment issues with "difficult" adolescents."
I was affiliated with The Institute of Family Therapy in Honolulu from 1997-2005, providing Individual and Family Therapy services for the State of Hawaii.
Presently I have a part time private practice providing Individual and Family Therapy services.

Description
We have had dogs in my family ever since I was a baby, and, compared to others, I always seemed to have a special talent at communicating with, and training our dogs.
I now have a wonderful Husky named Sky who used to be very difficult to deal with, but now accepts me as the Alpha male, is under my voice command, and is totally off-leash capable - which is very unusual for Huskies...
