I’m a New Yorker from Long Island who transplanted himself, courtesy of Uncle Sam’s Army, to Europe for 12 years as a naive 19 year old who wanted to get a handle on ways to view the world that differed from my middle class, suburban, traditional family upbringing. Seven years in Germany and five years in Spain, learning the language and culture, opened up my mind. I always had a passion for psychology. Earning my Masters in Education in ’76, and then much later earning my doctorate in clinical psychology in 2012, proved to myself that neuroplasticity does indeed last a lifetime. And I’m proving it again by working on my second doctorate. Life is an apple that I’m devouring to the core. I live to help others get the quality of life they desire.
