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, California School of Professional Psychology (Alliant International University), was a 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.
