Over the years, I have been invited and/or inspired to write on a number of topics. I have also developed a number of educational handouts for use in my work with clients. All of these materials are included here in the hope that they may be helpful.  More will be added on a continuing basis, so please be sure to check back from time to time for new information.  You can access each article by clicking on either its title below, or the buttons to the left which contain key words from each title.
