In my offices and online Zoom rooms, I’m working to free people from their bondage to painful emotions, addictive habits, and bad relationships. I specialize in marriage, infidelity, single adult relationships, sex addiction, other chemical and behavioral addictions, and devoted loved ones who unknowingly enable people with those disorders. I’ve had education, training, research, publications, and vast clinical experience with each of these specialties.
When my clients leave behind their old toxic ways, they need to find new healthy habits. You can find Brain Food for the Good Life on ten different issues: Anxiety, Anger, Depression, Dating, Marriage, Parenting, Addictions, Sex Addiction, Codependent Enabling, and Personal Growth in Wellness. These subjects are addressed in 150 articles from my Brain Food blog, and 20 episodes of my Brain Food podcast.
Wellness Education for Living and Loving (WELL) is a nonprofit foundation creating a free, anonymous, online test of wellbeing, the Traditional Assessment of Wellness (TAW). Using a practical model of wellness in continuous use for the past 3000 years, it evaluates toxic and healthy ways we pursue 9 basic needs in life - truth, respect, security, support, fairness, sexuality, wealth, vitality, and health. Demographic data from test takers will show causes and effects of each trait. At to-the-well.org, people and groups will soon find many free wellness resources, such as a portal for taking the TAW, and for each of the nine issues, Bible study guides and Life Lessons.
