I’d like to think I picked this up from my father, who also had a way of putting his thoughts and feelings to pen and paper.

But most of all, it was for my sense of humor and satire. F ..read more

I, unfortunately, am n ..read more

Sure, you have just spent 30,60,90 (maybe more!) however many days of your life in a program working on yourself and learning an insane amount about your traumas/triggers/addictions etc. But the truth of the matter is that the real work won’t start until you step foot off the property and back out into the “real world”.  This may come as a surprise to some, but when I hear a client say before leaving ..read more
