I have enjoyed several careers -- most recently the practice of psychotherapy, with a social service agency for several years, and then in a 20-year private practice in Berkeley, California. I worked with individuals, families, and couples. I have also done public speaking on stress management and emotional health. Now, semi-retired, I have focused on writing. Prior to all of that, I was in religious ministry for about 20 years.
My doctorate (S.Th.D) is in pastoral psychology.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, schooled in Washington (Georgetown University), Baltimore (St. Mary's Seminary and Univ.), and Berkeley (Graduate Theological Union), I lived and worked many years in Idaho -- with a three-and-a-half-year period in Cali, Colombia. I currently live in Kensington, California and Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley (part of the Graduate Theological Union - GTU) lists me as an adjunct professor. I continue to write and have recently taken up some art projects that have been percolating for years.
