My commitment and interest in parenting issues evolves out of working with children, teenagers, young adults and their families as a camp counselor, drug counselor, school counselor, clinical psychologist, and consultant. I have been married for over 35 years to my wonderful wife, Susie and we have two incredible daughters, Zoë and Mia.
