My background and education.

I got accepted to both Berkeley and Stanford, but decided to attend Berkeley to complete my undergraduate work. Then, I transferred to the University of San Francisco where I received my bachelors degree, and then obtained my masters degree at California State University, Los Angeles. I received my Ph.D in experimental psychology from the University of Oklahoma. I was in private practice in Pasadena, California for over 30 years. I taught theory of intelligence at Cal State Los Angeles, was an associate clinical professor California School of Professional Psychology (Alliant International University), was also an associate clinical professor at Fuller Theological Seminary for ten years, and worked for the Los Angeles Police Department helping them pick new officers for ten years.  I have lectured extensively on anger management, anxiety, and depression. I am also a jazz singer who sang at both The House of Blues and The Viper Room in Hollywood, California.
