Bob Simpson



Bob Simpson is an innovator who can help someone experiencing the trauma of separation, an accident, or life transition to view it as an "incident" in their lives that has purpose, meaning and, potentially, a rewarding ending.

Bob Simpson is a teacher who is willing to share his own experiences and mistakes with others so that they might learn--firstly, to be open and, secondly, to consider alternatives in their views, beliefs and behaviors. In his work with couples, he sees three living beings in front of him: two partners and one relationship. Each has life of its own and must be treated with respect, honor and dignity.

As a psychotherapist, he will bring to bear on the client whatever it takes to make a difference in that person's life. Whether you see him as individual client, a couple, family, or as a member of his group, you will find him involved opening up new possibilities in your life.

Bob is a member of CAMFT and AAMFT, both the California and American Associations of Marriage and Family Therapists. Having been in professional clinical practice since 1975 with his wife, Joyce, his clients come from referrals, from past clients who are growing, and from established medical and legal firms who trust his integrity and professionalism.

Bob is an award winning photographer. He is able to see images that are metaphors for how he views mankind. See Bob's photo gallery.
