Douglas Green is a psychotherapist in private practice in Los Angeles, helping kids and teens build lives they can be proud of. But the greatest therapist he ever knew, who influenced his practice more than any famous genius, was a goofy dog with a bad habit of walking in front of moving cars.
Before this, Green lived in Kansas City, Connecticut, and Australia. For over twenty years, he worked in the entertainment world, as a writer, director, producer, editor, actor, assistant director, even truck driver. Plays he directed have won multiple awards, and his feature The Hiding Place has been shown around the world.
He also created, writes, and manages the website www.AskShirelle.com, which gives advice – not from his viewpoint, but from that of a hyperactive, over-eager mutt.
