Are you or a loved one suffering from any form of addiction.? Is it tearing your family apart? Are you and your spouse not seeing eye to eye? Having difficulties communicating with one another. I focus on the client's needs at the time he/she is demonstrating an unwanted behavior. Learn to live free from emotional burden. Our program can help you overcome Addiction, Anger, Childhood Trauma, Relationships, and Perceived Roadblocks. Counselor, Speaker, Life Coach, and Award-winning Author. Don't live in fear of your past or allow the past to affect your present and future.

I focus on the "why" an individual started their self destructive behavior. Having 8500+ interviews with emotionally affected clients over the past 20 years, I help make sense of when chemical dependency or anger has become a survival mechanism. Live a happy, peaceful, emotion-free life without anger or violence.

I have been able to achieve an 85% success rate using a holistic approach called The Needs Based MethodĀ® a therapeutic modality developed by me which I have been using on my clients since 1998. There is no blaming, shaming or labeling.
