Welcome to My Second Chance!


I've created this website to share some of the valuable information I've learned since I began my career as a psychologist 34 years ago. 
At least 1 in 5 people struggle with some form of mental health problem during their life time. Most will not search for let alone receive adequate treatment.  I hope to help address this problem in some modest fashion.

All of us encounter setbacks during our lifetimes; some of us recover, some don't. Those who recover have learned to limit the damage done to themselves and their lives. They revise their dreams, dust themselves off and move forward.

Those who don't recover have suffered damage to their perception of the world and are prone to self-defeating thoughts, feelings and actions. Though difficult, it's possible for them to regain their peace of mind by using proven psychological methods.

I believe everyone can benefit from the information presented here. If you are already successful you will find ways to make your life even better and perhaps even preserve what you've got. If you are demoralized and suffering emotionally, I hope to provide you with the means to regain your psychological composure so that you might enjoy life to the fullest.

This page is designed to help you decide if this website is worth your time and energy.

My e-book psychology/art app entitled iAwoke is available through iTunes. (If necessary, once linked in, click View in iTunes) It's a large file that may require downloading via a wireless connection. Please join the iAwoke App Feedback page and let me know what you think about iAwoke. Also, if you have friends or relatives who have lost their way in life, steering them toward iAwoke is a respectful way to expose them to self-awareness, making plans and overcoming factors that inhibit progress.
