I would like to begin by introducing myself and telling you about my background.  I am German-American and have been living in Dubai for 6 years.  I have pursued my interest and passion for psychology and the social and behavioral sciences for nearly 30 years. I have taught university classes, and worked closely on an individual basis with clients in a clinical setting. I have been able to share and use my extensive experience to help my clients understand and manage problems, such as life crises and challenges, marital problems, depression and anxiety.  

I am as energized today as I was 30 years ago by being able to make a difference in people’s lives.  I hope that you will find my postings interesting, informative, and most of all … helpful in making some of your life problems and issues more understandable and manageable.
