Mentioned in this episode:
Mike Keren is a clinical psychologist with advanced training in psychoanalysis and family therapy. He currently maintains a private practice for adults and couples in central New Jersey, though in the past he worked in a variety of community and correctional facilities. Although he has a general practice, he has a particular interest in working with caregivers as well as helping families talk about end-of-life issues.
Mike enjoys a challenge in his free time and has explored the world of competitive gay tournament bowling (several trophies and a bit of prize money), golf (bored to tears), and stand-up comedy. His foray into stand-up even became the subject of a friend’s senior thesis at film school. He eventually decided to leave the stage to the younger folks and channeled his humor into writing.
Mike is supported in his endeavors by his loving husband, Tom, and their two canine children, Carley and Clyde. They divide their time between central New Jersey and the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.
