As a behavioral health therapist, I’ve worked for and with a wide range of behavioral health providers, including maximum-security prisons, probation departments, clinics, and with many diverse cultures and races, including Native Americans.
As a behavioral health therapist, author and motivational speaker, I try to take a spiritual approach to life’s dynamics. To perform at the highest level, you’ve got to walk the talk and lead by example. I believe that when clarity, honesty and compassion are interwoven with the daily fabric of our lives, happiness empowers us to accomplish virtually anything we can think, feel or imagine.
I was born in Oak Park, Illinois, the home of Ernest Hemingway and Frank Lloyd Wright. The oldest of four boys within five years, attended St. Joseph High School in Westchester, run by the tough, discipline-minded Christian Brothers.
