My Story

I grew up on a farm in the state of Indiana with 5 siblings. My grandmother was my 3rd grade teacher and my basketball coach called me the 30-guy…he could put me in games when we were 30 points ahead, 30 points behind or had 30 seconds left. At Indiana University Bloomington, I met my wife Susan who brought me to Pennsylvania. We have 3 young adult children and plan to live on the banks of the Monongahela someday.

My Career Story

I started working with children 32 years ago at the Monroe County Youth Shelter. When I moved to Pennsylvania, I became a family therapist under the remarkable supervision of Tony Schrim. While working toward my graduate degree in special education, I met Regis Lazor and we co-founded System 1-2-3. I love working with people who work with people and creating resources that support social emotional growth for adults and children.
