I first met Ralph through my wife who was a probation officer at the time. She later went to law school and became the Marin County elected ... District Attorney, the first woman DA in the Bay Area. Ralph and I worked together when I was on the Board of Directors for the California Psychological Association and I nominated him for a position to lead a group that were providing services to psychologists who had developed substance abuse problems. I attended his retirement party from Kaiser and listened to story after story of his incredible skills as a mentor, supervisor, teacher, supervisor and clinician. He is a forward thinking scientist, the kind that is needed to put our vast experiential knowledge to use in developing new products, assessment tools to monitor progress, and techniques that are grounded in theory and evidenced bases practice. Having working as a Controller and Chief Financial Officer for over 20 years (obtaining an MBA to further my skills in accounting and finance), made a mid life career change by returning to school to earn a doctorate in Clinical Psychology, co-founded a treatment program in 1999 that began services in 2001 and has treated and saved the lives of nearly 900 emergency responders, written a book, became board certified as one of 50 experts in police and public safety psychology in the world, having been President of the California Psychological association and served in various chair positions and as a member of several committees both in California and Nationally, I feel eminently qualified to say that Dr. Lamson is a creative, hard working, daring and successful business person. I feel confident in his entrepreneurial skills and high;y recommend him.
