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.
