Alan Goodfried has been a psycho-therapist for 25 years. Prior to breaking his neck, he also worked in Solano County, California, as a program manager for a psychiatric intensive day treatment program for children and adolescents. When his doctor told him that he would never drive again, he retired from his county position and began a journey of self-discovery that included studying piano and writing this memoir. Today, Alan maintains a private psychotherapy practice in Walnut Creek and uses his new perspective to help clients overcome their own physical and emotional barriers to fulfilling their dreams. Alan lives with his wife Jaine in the San Francisco Bay Area and has two adult daughters who reside in southern California.
