I grew up in Atlanta GA at a time when it was a quieter, simpler place to live than it is now.  Paying no attention to the world news, I got drafted and went to Vietnam. I was wounded, but undeterred, continued to play tennis and golf. I graduated from The University of West Georgia with a Masters degree in Humanistic Psychology.

I began working as a psychologist in a state mental health facility before entering private practice, I left my practice to get a PH.D. at the University of Georgia.

After receiving my Psychology License, I went back to private practice full time. For the last forty years, I have been a student of life. I believe that every person has the right to find what generates their passion and makes them happy. Creating healthy patterns is the fastest and most efficient way to do that. I am married to Jeannie, who is my partner in all things.

How the idea for treating patterns found me...

Early in my career, I saw a repetitive phenomenon that played out in people's lives. In counseling, they told me they performed actions, that they called “mistakes,” over and over and had no way to change it. Why did this happen?
