|Bio and Links|
Born in Los Angeles, California where my father's side of the family is from, I was raised largely in Detroit, Michigan, where my mother's side of the family is from. A graduate of Hollywood (CA) HS, I went on to study music at University of Southern California, Stanford and San Francisco State and psychology, graduating with BA and MS degrees from George Williams College in Chicago. This is where I met my wife, Margie. We came to Pittsburgh for me to pursue doctoral study in psychology and have been here ever since. Our children were born and raised in Pittsburgh. Our daughter is married with children and lives in the Washington, DC area. Our son is married with children and lives in the Melbourne, Australia area. While working as a state hospital psychologist near Pittsburgh in the early 1970s, I became interested in Bowen family systems theory, a way of thinking that assumes that the most important influence in how we all turn out is our family relationships. I am a founder of Western Pennsylvania Family Center in Pittsburgh, an organization that has provided training and education in Bowen theory since 1985 and am its current director. I strongly believe that the more anyone knows of her family, present and past, the more we know about ourselves.|

If any of the memorials I have are your relatives you are welcome to them. (unless they are related to me of course)
But I feel that the best loved memorials are those cared for by family. Please request transfer of any that I have entered.
