I am a licensed mental health counselor and
certified alcohol and substance abuse counselor in New YorkState,
with 25 years experience, but you should know that's not all that I have done.At age 19 I moved to WesternNew YorkState. There, I built a
house, farmed, and started a small lumber company. When I got tired of making little pieces of
wood out of big pieces of wood, I went to Empire State College and got a degree
in psychology.I interned at a Veteran's Administration
chemical dependency unit.My first job was working with troubled
adolescents in a group home. I was an employment counselor for a while,
took calls on a crisis line, and facilitated group therapy for male sex
offenders. I was employed as a therapist at a program for people with severe
mental illnesses.I completed a master's degree in education
with an emphasis on counseling from AlfredUniversity.For twenty years, I provided psychotherapy in
a community mental health center in Rochester,
NY.I studied at the Family Therapy Institute at
the University of
Rochester, and completed
a certification program in drug and alcohol counseling associated with SUNY
Brockport.I was one of a small group of people who
developed one of the earliest programs to integrate mental health and chemical
addiction (MICA) treatment. I have given talks and lectures in the community on
the topic.I also worked at bringing tobacco counseling
to mental health and substance abuse treatment.I wrote and published several short stories
and a novel, Fate's Janitors: Mopping Up Madness at a Mental Health Clinic.And I've raised a family of four children.Recently, I resigned from my job at the
community mental health clinic to start a private practice.
