After nearly 30 years in the television and film industry in Hollywood, Alan took another turn onto a path not yet taken and completed both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Psychology. The former at the University of LaVerne and the latter at the Buddhist-based University of the West, both in California. He is currently practicing as a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist throughout the state of California. The road goes ever on.

“I use an integrative technique blending traditional psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapies with meditation and a post-modern, person-centered approach in order to work with clients in the most effective way for them. I strive to work with clients in a collaborative way focusing on what matters most to them in the moment while keeping an eye on long term progress.
