  • The Power of “Aha”!

    Recently, I was counseling a client who has been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis.

  • Goals Setting: See Yourself 5 Years from Now

    Where will you be in Five Years? My friend Scott affectionately calls his GPS navigational system “Suzie.” It’s a voice-activated gadget which operates kind of like a genie in a bottle. He tells it where he wants to go, and it tells him exactly how to get there. If only life were this easy. In […]

Ever has this moon portended a return to splendor and abundance after the long, cold dark of winter. Since ancient times, believers have anticipated that with this moon comes new life, new hope, and an allegory […]

    Living Without Fear It is said that integrity is gauged by what one does when no one is watching.
