“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.” Gospel of Thomas
Maybe you’ve asked yourself the following:
- What do I want to start but haven’t started?
- What do I want to stop but haven’t stopped?
- What do I want to say but haven’t said?
- What have I felt but haven’t expressed?
- What do I want to change but haven’t changed?
- And now what do I do?
It would be my honor to serve as your personal guide to help you carve out for yourself the path through the wilderness that is your time here on Earth.
I have a variety of offerings to help open your own cracks in consciousness. Charles Dudley Warner said, “Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just enough baggage,” and this is my philosophy as well. If a little will do, why use a lot? I’ve developed smart, easy-to-use tools and tangible takeaways that will enable you to expand your understanding of yourself and your world.
At the heart of all I do is Therapeutic Storytelling, which uses creative metaphors to tell individualized stories that address challenging experiences; offer possible resolutions; and provide the opportunity for insight and reflection. I use books, webinars, blogs, and videos to tell my stories; share the stories of others who have joined me on the voyage of discovery; and provide a roadmap to anyone who wants to be on this path with us.

“It’s very simple, really, what I try to do. People come to a fork in the road. They’re confused. They don’t know which way to take. I just put up a signpost: ‘Not that way. This way.’” Claude Rains as Dr. Jaquith in Now Voyager
Examine Envision Emerge Books
I’ve written five books (and counting!) in the Examine Envision Emerge series. Each book focuses on a specific “perception transformation” topic designed to challenge existing assumptions, attitudes, and beliefs in order to consider new horizons. Because sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, a “crack in consciousness,” to begin to see new possibilities.

Examine Envision Emerge Blogs
My blogs spring from what I can only describe as a “collaboration” between the Universe and me. It begins when the Universe sends me an experience or an encounter in my daily life that is aimed at helping me transform my perception of something and provide a new way of thinking. My part in this collaboration is to sit down and write about the experience and what changed for me.
Want to wander at will through some of my own life-changing (or at the very least, thought-provoking) experiences and encounters? Go to My Blogs and jump right in!
