I have struggled with depression and the after-effects of child abuse most of my adult life, and seek to assist others who grapple with these issues. I hope my journeys resonate with some, validate feelings, and spark the thoughts “I’m not alone” and “I will feel better.” My goals are to im-prove and save lives.
My first book, Surviving Our Parents Mistakes, de-buted in 1999, and I published the second edition in 2021. Transcending Depression came on the market in 2020. My articles about depression have appeared on the websites of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the American Founda-tion for Suicide Prevention, and the Canadian Mental Heath Association. I live with my wife, Cathy, in Missoula, Montana.
