About eleven years ago, I authored my first book, Charlie: A Love Story, about one of my Golden Retrievers, Charlie. It contains many implicit messages about how to live a good life, have a great relationship, and care for another being. But mostly it’s about an indomitable dog and our extraordinary relationship.

And now I’m in the process of publishing my second book, Happy Harry: A Magical Golden, about another of my Golden Retrievers. This time, the story of this Golden is about the happiest being I’ve ever known. It’s about how he prances through life, with an attitude we all would be fortunate to have, facing life head-on with his wonderful, very happy spirit. Life throws some pretty hard knocks at Harry, but he responds to them like gnats going by. I’ve never seen anything like it. Harry’s special, and his story is unforgettable.

My Other Passions

Besides my work as a psychotherapist and author, I am passionate about gardening and reading. I love all aspects of gardening, from raking to landscape design, the miracle of growth, the garden’s beauty.


I’ve always been an avid reader. One of my favorite authors is Anne Tyler. There are so many good writers. I also read medical journals and am very knowledgeable about medicine, both Western and Eastern.

For over 30 years, I've been a psychotherapist in private practice. I love this work and consider it a calling. Since I was very young, I’ve had a natural curiosity about people and have really liked helping them feel better. Just about every job I’ve had has involved serving and helping people, as a flight attendant, teacher, and now as a psychotherapist.

I also love all dogs and have lived with them most of my life, mainly Golden Retrievers. For me, they are the most empathic, joyful, and loving breed.
