My first self-help book, Self-Empowerment:  Have the Life You Want!, is now available in hardback, paperback, and e-book format for Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook.

It is a self-help book and a guide on how to close the gap between how life is and how you would like it to be, in important areas of your life such as your Mental Health, Health, Relationships, Career, Finances, Family, Community, and Spirituality  It's based on stories (with identities kept confidential) from my 20 years as a psychotherapist and life/career coach.
