In addition to my Education & Credentials, I’ve been in the business of helping people, in one form or another since 1995.
My first job in High School was working at an Assisted-Living Retirement Facility. I never made less money in my life, but was never more richly rewarded, emotionally & spiritually.
Early in my career, I spent several years volunteering with a Non-Profit Organization that specialized in setting up & facilitating Group Therapy Sessions for teenagers, living in addictive or abusive environments.
Throughout my career, I've traveled extensively, lecturing, teaching & giving presentations on diverse topics such as, Codependency, psychological effects of being an Adult-Child of an Alcoholic, Emotional & Sexual Intimacy, and Meditation & Mindfulness, just to name a few.
For several years, I taught Sunday afternoon classes in Meditation & Mindfulness.
When my father was diagnosed with Terminal Cancer in 2007, I lived and walked with him through the end stages of his life. I’ve given talks about that as well.
I've been a practicing Hypnotherapist for the last 6 1/2 years, and have recently been Certified as a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (N.L.P.).
