About Me

As a former professor and a current family psychologist in private practice, I tend to view things through a psychological lens. This means that instead of looking at just the surface content of an issue, I try to see the process underlying it.

Several years ago I found that I really enjoyed doing this kind of analysis for popular culture (see my chapters in Benbella’s SmartPop series) and I wanted to do more of it. Thus, I broadened my range to include current events, family issues, and political hot topics and voila, a blog was born. And, because you cannot take the counselor role out of me, I can’t resist offering some thoughts on counseling issues as well.

So, feel free to stay a while, read essays covering a cross section of topics, and let me know what you think.
