About Ron Houssaye

I was born in San Francisco and started publishing poems in small press in 1971. I published a short story, "The Meeting," in the anthology, "Across the Generations," in the eighties. I continued to write poetry, essays and even finished a novel. I earned a bachelor's degree in journalism in 1979, became a reporter for a weekly, found it paid poorly, so left professional journalism to teach. I taught high school English, social sciences and drama until 1997. I went on to earn a master's degree in counseling in 1998. This opened the door for a new career as a licensed professional therapist, specializing in family therapy and the treatment of addiction. I do family, group and individual therapy, whatever is needed within my scope of practice. I began this blog in 2017 and work as a psychotherapist in Wisconsin. I feel I'm called to help people who want to break free of their addictions and assist families of addiction however I can, through speaking, giving workshops, writing and counseling.
