My marriage was on the rocks, which was quite difficult for me. Fortunately, I found a great therapist. It was transformational, life-changing. After that, I just had to help people like I had been helped.
There are two themes I find recurring in my work helping people - practical solutions to life's problems and a deep understanding of how we got to this place. What I mean is - when we discuss problems that people are having, sometimes thinking outside of the box to find tips or tricks can short circuit the struggle to resolve those problems. In other cases, for longer-term, recurring problems, patients are often delightfully surprised by the insight they get about how those problems came to be.... Which then gives them the tools to do things differently - and the freedom to choose new life courses.

This is my third career. I was, at one time, a Domino's Pizza manager and a computer programmer. I've been a psychologist now for 29 years. Most of my career has been as a forensic psychologist in private practice. During these almost 3 decades, I have evaluated or helped more than 10,000 people.
