I am an author and mental health educator who writes on the topics of psychology, healing, and spirituality. I have authored a number of books that reflect the diverse interests I have pursued, including my memoir on depression recovery When Going Through Hell...Don't Stop!; Astrology For Yourself; my book on affirmations Words That Heal; Positive Self-Talk for Children; and Healing From Depression. I make my home in Portland, Oregon where I live with my wife Joan and my Persian cat, Bruce.
