Throughout this website, my goal is to help you realize that although life can be painful, unfair, and brutal, it doesn’t have to be misery.
The practice of good clinical psychology is not about having your pain “taken away” but to be helped to take up the cup of your destiny with courage and honesty.


Anger and Forgiveness

Shows how to turn the emotional wounds of daily life into psychological growth.
