I have extensive experience in helping others.  In fact, I have over 20 thousand hours, across 30 years of practice to draw from.  I am a university professor and program chair, as well as the associate editor and co-author of the Encyclopedia of Mental Health and Mental Disorders.  Click below to learn more about my experiences.
