About the Author
Lee Johnson(1954-) was born in Washington state, but relocated to San Francisco when two years old. He was raised and influenced during the cultural movement of the 1960s and 70s. His interest in mental health developed out of a curiosity to understand the colorful street people of that era. This led to a Bachelor Degree in Psychology from San Francisco State University. He graduated from Fresno State University with a Masters of Social Work with a psychiatric focus in 1978. He published "A Pilot Study of Personality Type Change" as a result of thesis research in 1980. This began his counseling career that led to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. This licensure allowed him to conduct therapy and marriage counseling in private practice. He extended his therapy skills by graduating from the Biofeedback Institute of Los Angeles. This allowed him to treat high blood pressure, anxiety, headaches, insomnia and related psycho-physiological disorders. A transition to medical social work on cardiac and medical-surgical units required bereavement family counseling. This developed into working for a hospice doing death and dying counseling. Lee credits the hospice experience for enlightening him to the end of life issues. After that, he established a workers compensation private practice treating and advocating for injured employees. He became an instructor/counselor for a diet clinic advising on mental heath issues and eating. He established a stress reduction and anxierty management program for the diet center. Due to broad interests, Lee began to study business investments and became a registered representative or stockbroker. Combining this with an insurance license allowed him to offer annuities for 401k and 403b tax deferred retirement plans. He then applied stock market knowledge to the real estate markets as an investor. But, missing the depth of human contact, he returned to counseling. He continues to do volunteer counseling and enjoys continual research and study in gerontology and retirement areas. The cumulation of all this diverse experience is evidenced in his current work for women.

I have lived a quite different life from many Americans, and my lifestyle as a former graduate student is one I will most likely adopt during retirement - with a bit more money to do a few bucket list items. Even now as a FT employee, I share my house with someone for the benefits I gain. I have one rule for myself: rent to graduate students, and if from another country, so much the better. They always make rent, and they always try to behave so they don't get kicked out.
