Joel and Gizmo

Since 1990, I have been working as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.  There are two parts of my professional life:  I have a part time private practice in Burbank, California, and in addition, I work for the Counseling and Psychotherapy Centers, Inc., where the focus of my work is a forensic population, as well as supervising other clinicians.  I believe that people should enjoy what they do for a living, and in my case, I love the work I do.  I have been with Counseling and Psychotherapy Centers since 2005, and very much enjoy the work I do.

There are three parts of my non-professional life that I also love, as you can tell from this website:  I enjoy training my dogs to herd livestock, and sometimes compete with them in AKC (American Kennel Club) herding competitions.  Since 1996, I have been a judge for the AKC, judging herding competitions.

I love photography, and especially enjoy taking pictures of wildlife.  You’ll find some wildlife photos I have taken on this site as well.

I also am very involved in tracing my family genealogy, and you will find a page with my family research and photos as well.
