Wherever you were trying to go when you ended up here…WELCOME!
Whether or not you know what you’re looking for…WELCOME!
If you’re just killing time…GO AWAY!

“If I knew then what I know now, I’d make the same mistakes but I’d start sooner.”
– George Burns

Don’t waste so much time online. Better to be out in the world making mistakes to bring your life richness and vitality. If you write me I’ll eventually get around to responding, but it’s not a priority. I offer undivided attention in face-to-face encounters. If you text me, Fuggedaboudit, I’ll never respond…Go away. Instead, go out there and make mistakes in face-to-face encounters. Then we might have something to talk about.

The author says that a client’s recovery is all that counts to show which method of therapy counts. The author is Sigmund Freud.

It’s all about the client’s gain. Click on the links for more details. What if you’re caught on the ocean in a hurricane? This is covered too. Get the clarity you need to make your life better, then get off this website, get off the Internet, and get on with making mistakes.
