I am a psychologist who spent over 30 years teaching physicians how to incorporate effective counseling skills into their daily practice. As a mental health practitioner, I recognized how critical it was to integrate treatments for physical and mental health. I have shared the easily learned, powerful, evidenced based techniques through the publication of six editions of the Fifteen Minute Hour. In my ongoing clinical practice I never cease to marvel at the potential of people to heal.
