About

Bio

I own 3 behavioral health clinics on Maryland's beautiful Eastern Shore. My staff and I have worked with people suffering from many different kinds of problems who also have great positive qualities. I also supervise and teach therapists and provide training on trauma and violence for a variety of disciplines of health providers. I believe in the coordination of behavioral and medical care for complex disorders. I have written 2 books on youth violence, articles for Psychology Today, and I speak across the US for PESI. I have appeared on CNN, Fox Network, and Discovery ID. My best selling and award winning books and assessments include "How Children Become Violent," "Youth Violence," "CARE2," and "5 Secrets to Help you Solve Problems and Relax." I work with professionals and agencies
