A little bit about me...
I wrote The Shade Tree Choir in a time that I was
trying to deal with my psychiatric diagnosis of clinical
depression. I felt by telling others about my past, I would heal
myself inside. It was a cathartic experience for me and was
difficult to write at times. I suspect that is why the word used
by others most often about my novel is "Powerful".
I am a retired physical therapist. My sub-specialty was dealing
with pain. I was a certified arthritis specialist by the American
Physical Therapy Association. I was a certified specialist in
office ergonomics and a Manual Therapist.
I wrote the book, "Stress Management: Does Anyone in
Chicago Know About It?" There was a time when I taught
groups how to manage their stress. I am a former member of
The National and Central Florida Speakers' Association. I am a
former instructor of Tai Chi. I know how to meditate and use a
vast array of methods to manage my depression and stress.
My blog covers all types of topics related to mental health
issues. I use my Blog to help others. Feel free to send me any
questions or reply to either of my Blog sites.
Thanks for buying my book, The Shade Tree Choir.
