About Trucker Therapy

Anger, Stress and Relationship problems are common for many truckers and their families.

TruckerTherapy.com was founded by Buck Black LCSW LCAC, a therapist who specializes in helping truckers and their families address these issues. Trucker Therapy uses phone or Skype/FaceTime so truckers can stay on the road and improve themselves at the same time. Multi-line conference calling is often used when working with couples, as well as group Skype sessions. Office visits are also available in Lafayette, Indiana.

Full bio and information about my therapy office work at www.BuckBlack.com

verified by Psychology TodayHelping truckers is my priority because they are so important to all of us, if we realize it or not.  Remember, if you've got it, a trucker brought it!  Its also important to remember that truckers lack access to the basic services that most of us take for granted. So, I am doing everything I can to help improve the quality of life for truckers and their families.

Why did I become a Therapist? I have envisioned working in private practice since late elementary school. I found that I am always talking with and helping others, which I really enjoy. I have a great deal of fun with my work and I certainly hope my clients end up having as much fun as I do!

My educational background includes a Master's degree in Social Work (MSW) from Indiana University. I earned my Bachelor's degree from Purdue University (Lafayette, Indiana campus), where I double majored in Psychology and Sociology. I also earned a minor in Computer Technology. In addition, I've received training on a variety of clinical subjects including anger management, anxiety, couples counseling, codependency, personality disorders, PTSD, and various types of sexual issues. I continue to learn more about counseling and therapy by participating in anger management workshops and various trainings, as well as reading and lecturing about various topics related to counseling and online coaching.

On the personal side, I grew up in the Lafayette area and have spent the majority of my life here. When I'm not at the office, I can usually be found fishing, going to local festivals, and traveling the West Coast and Desert Southwest.
