Hello  

My education and work experience are diverse.  My university background is in communication studies with a focus in social psychology.  Since I graduated, I have dedicated my life to understanding how we, as humans, can learn to understand and appreciate each other better.  

The quickest way to grasp how I help people is to read one of my nonfiction short stories.  These stories range from 1,000 to 2,500 words. If you like what you read, feel free to send me a friend request.  2 or 3 are posted in BouncePen and the rest are available by ebook.  

Although I am not currently a licensed therapist, I have more than about 20 years of experience in counseling people internationally.  Each of my nonfiction books is a collection, by topic, of my experiences listening to people and using my innate ability to help them organize their thoughts and emotions.  Not only have I helped hundreds of people, but I do it for free.  

Since I am not a licensed therapist, I do not charge by the hour.  When you book a meeting with me, you do not need to watch a clock and wait for an invoice to come.  Instead, we will build a friendship that will allow you us to learn about each other.  

I was raised in a Catholic family, but today I do not endorse any specific religion, so when you call me, you can be assured, I will respect whatever your religious beliefs may be, including atheists.  

An example of 2 stories of mine are below.  

1)  Jesus isn't my savior--my wife is. 

This story is about the value a man places on  his wife.  Although the title seems to make a theological statement, this story has nothing to do with theology. My belief is that Jesus is God and that he died on the cross for us. However, I do not believe that the study of theology leads us to Christ.  I believe that when we reveal the love of Christ through friendships with others, God reveals himself (herself) through those relationships in a tangible way.  

2)  Don't do it!  Don't show him the picture!  

This story is about the joy a student felt when she was able to speak with an adult she trusted about a topic that was causing her confusion.
