About me
I have a recent book co-authored with Robert Sterling, now available on Amazon (or go to our website entitled "What's Behind Your Belly Button?" Subtitled: "A Psychological Perspective of the Intelligence of Human Nature and Gut Instinct". We are also exploring research for a second book at this time. I would be interested in sharing communication with anyone also studying and researching the enteric nervous system from a psychological perspective. I am semi-retired, but am still in the practice of consulting (with a Depth Psychology and Somatics emphasis) using the Somatic Reflection Process with a small amount of clients to assist people with dealing with their feelings of isolation, anxiety, stress and health issues, and in making life-decisions that support the intelligence of the gut instincts, in healing the trauma of the body/mind split, and in supporting a positive new image of human nature. Having worked directly with Dr. Mary McCauley and Isabel Myers in the 70s with the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), I have an extensive background in Typology and incorporate it into my coaching.
