Hi, welcome to my page. I am a psychotherapist and author, a writer of fiction and non-fiction, short stories and essays. I comment on trends in my field, including legislation that impacts the role of the therapist in our society. There are nearly 200 entries on this blog, dating back to 2013.
My latest major project is a novel entitled Blended, about a middle-aged woman who volunteers to help a refugee family assimilate into American society in the election year of 2016. This book is my sixth novel, following previous efforts, Venus Looks Down On A Prairie Vole , a drama relating to sex addiction and child abuse, The Situation, which is a follow up to my 2012 novel Crystal From The Hills. These latter two are surrealist fictions about an accident, a disappearance, a trauma, and a mystery. The Situation received a four star review from Clarion magazine.
I also write about adolescent substance abuse treatment, in a book entitled Working Through Rehab, as well related issues. Here’s a review pertaining to that work:
