I am a retired psychotherapist with a commitment to mental health,. especially to children and youth. I had my own private practice in Washington State and i was able to expand that pracitice into my home state of California. It also extended into Playas de Tijuana. I was fortunaate to have several physicians who saw the value of mental health, and asked me to work with their patients and discover that hope had changed but was never gone. This book has just thirty-five of more than four hundred clients I agreed to assist.
