About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Depth Psychoanalyst and Independent Scholar
Location Flagstaff, AZ, United States
Introduction I grew up in the part of Minnesota Garrison Keillor identifies as "Lake Wobegone" and from there ended up as a police officer in Minot, ND and Phoenix, AZ. I went back to school after nearly six years in law enforcement and earned a bachelor's degree in psychology and literature, two Master's degrees in psychology and a Ph.D. in Cultural Mythology. I currently have a private practice in Flagstaff, AZ as a Depth Psychoanalyst and Clinical Hypnotherapist. I enjoy writing essays about whatever happens to catch my attention and poetry, as well as long road bike rides around this beautiful part of the country I'm so blessed to live in.
