Professionally, I earned my Master in Social Work from Portland State University. I have worked in quite a variety of settings. The short list includes: the Health Department, a private vocational rehabilitation company, Mt. Hood Community Hospital Alcohol and Drug Treatment Program, employee assistance providers, a halfway house in England, and the National Basketball Association Recovery Program. Since 1987, I have been in full time private practice, working as a counselor, therapist, consultant, trainer, and presenter.
