I'll update this when I have new book releases or seminar dates.
I just set up a page where you can pay ahead of time for your session (after we schedule it) or make an appointment for a phone "coaching" session with me.
Feel free to email me or call if you have questions about what I do or if you would like to set up an appointment for therapy.
