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.
