I have known Mark Wheeler for several years now.  I have always been impressed by his enthusiasm, ability and empathy.  He is a skilled researcher and a caring, effective counsellor, not to mention a genuine, good person.  Mark’s work with Military Veterans with PTSD is innovative and timely, and his results are excellent.
