    Psychotherapist
             I grew up on the Mexican border in South Texas, where I enjoyed the benefits of diversity as I lived side-by-side with another culture.  
             I went to Harvard in the late '60's, got my first MA from University of Texas in Speech/Communication and, after that, was an actor for many years in NYC and LA.  
             After getting therapy myself for issues arising in part from growing up as a gay boy in a conservative environment, I was inspired to help others as I had been helped.  I got my second MA from Antioch University LA and began my career as a psychotherapist, using many of the skills I had learned as an actor: imagining myself in another person's shoes, being non-judgmental, and listening closely.
