The effort put into making the decision to provide help came from out of the heart. It was the desire to help others use faith, Love and trust in themselves to inflate their hearts that had been stepped on or crushed. Deflated and flattened. By hate, greed, or just simply unfortunate circumstances. George Washington once said, " Be courteous to all, but intimate with few... And let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. " That's my job. To be the one person you can speak all your poison and pain to without judgement. I don't care if you use profanity, scream-and-shout, cry, or speak in monotone. You were who you are before we ever met. I don't expect you to be somebody you're not. I need to know who you are, and how you feel. That is the only way I will be able to help you. Honesty is the best policy, because it's the first step to finding the help that we need. So, I adjust to you and your needs. Not the other way around. Take off your mask, and let's talk face-to-face.
Without realizing it, I was doing this at an early age. I was raised by my grandfather who was born in 1942, and my grandmother he was also born in 1942. My grandfather went to the military in his late teens, and retired. At the age of 47, he became a car salesman. And the reason why he did so well as a car salesman, was because he always sold based on the need of the customer. He would always analyze what the customer was relating to him, and he would ask the customer questions that would cause them to rethink their wants and their needs. This usually ended up in the customer getting what they needed and wanted at a better price rather than getting what they wanted and exceeding their need, and finances. He was a great, and honest man. My grandmother, she was always known as the hugger. Because, everyone she ever met, she always gave hugs to them. I was raised in a home of love and forgiveness. And I carried this upbringing with me throughout my life, sharing love and forgiveness and understanding with all my friends and with family and even with people who I just happened to be speaking to one day after another. It was always a pleasure to be able to listen to and encourage and help others with what was going on in their lives. I am now 34 years old. This is my passion. This is not a career to me. This is my chance to reach out and help. For me, I didn't spend years in front of books, becoming disconnected from the people who needed the help that they were searching for. I spent my years in front of people and they're open hearts. The experience I have isn't in reading and solving formulas and equations. It's not in mastering the vocabulary and understanding all the definitions for the mental dysfunctions we all have. My experience has been with listening to what's really going on with who people are, and what is truly troubling their hearts and minds. It's true, don't believe everything that you read. But you can believe everything you've experienced. Unfortunately, sometimes those experiences can have a negative impact on the perception that we have of ourselves and the world around us. So, my wish and hope is that the time we spend together, will encourage you in a way that will begin to mold and shape that perception in a more healthy way of seeing the way things are. To expand your positive Horizon. Whether it be closure and clarity, or finding your passions, or achieving your goals, it's my desire to get you wherever you want to go. Just like a tire that has gone flat, a flat heart can stop us dead in our tracks. But when patched, and refilled with air, we can get back on the road and continue the joy of our travels. Don't let a flat heart stop you from enjoying life's journey. Let me help you put back into your heart that which was lost. Let me be your Good Samaritan. I'm here, and I want to help. This is your chance to live again, with a full and healthy heart.

The first and most important factor is urgency. When I sit down with someone, the first thing I need to identify is, how urgent are they to open up. It varies. First we determine pace. Not mine, but theirs.
All the education came from real people. They educated me in the way of confirming who I am and what I've been given as a gift to help others. I've worked throughout many different institutions, helping men who were broken and lost in grief, regret, pain, and anger. I've learned that to give them hope in all that is good in who they are was more effective than giving them doubt by telling them they were riddled with negative afflictions that had been set upon their minds. We heal with our words. With our expressions. So many people turn to medications because they feel that's the only hope left for them. But that's not all that's left. The tongue is a two-edged sword; it can defend and protect, or it can kill and destroy. I offer kindness and gentleness; love and compassion. Because that is how I was taught. And I am here to share it.
