About Me

Gratitude is joy to the heart!

THIS WEBSITE is dedicated to healing, not greed. Through this work I have made my knowledge and experience available to all, and for the sake of truth I do not accept monetary support from sponsors or advertising.

Therefore, if this website has helped you in your personal psychological growth, it is fitting that you make an offering of gratitude for what you have received here.

A $20 offering is but a fraction of the cost of a day of recreation or an evening of entertainment, a $10 offering is less than the cost of a movie ticket, and even a $5 offering is less than the cost of a latte.


“I don’t have any money,” you say. Well, try this: try giving up a cup of coffee, or a couple cans of cola, or some snacks, or give up meat for one day and eat vegetarian foods, and see how much money you can save.

The point here is that, if you are hoping to change and improve your life, your willingness to give up something to help pay for that change will determine if the change actually occurs.


Any offering is a gift of understanding—and a down-payment on the success of your hopes.


Please note that offerings made to me through this website are not tax-deductible
because I am not a tax-exempt organization. Payments for services, however, may qualify as a medical expense.
If you are unsure, consult with an accountant.

Please be advised that unless you receive a receipt from PayPal your transaction has not been completed; in which case, please try again.

PayPal can automatically convert any currency to US dollars.



Your expression of gratitude will be appreciated. Immensely.
In respect for your privacy, however, I will not contact you through the e-mail address you use with PayPal or Square, but if you send comments through the Contact Me page, I will acknowledge your payment through the e-mail address you use in sending your comments.
Furthermore, I will not sell your contact information to a mailing list, nor will I use your contact information to ask you for additional donations in the future; I hate it when companies do those things to me, so I refuse to disrespect the privacy of those who contact me.

Other Ways to Make an Offering

Personal Check.  (US only.) Send a check to me at my office address below.

Bank Draft.  If you want the security of a check but prefer to remain anonymous, or if you are sending money from outside the US, then purchase a bankers draft in USD and send it to me at my office address below.

Cash.  Wrap the money in a sheet of paper, put it in an envelope, and send it to me at my office address below.

Spread the message.  Buy copies of my books and give them to your relatives and your friends.

About Me

I AM JUST ONE MAN with no office staff. I have done everything on this website—the writing, the design, and the programming—without a sponsor. No one pays me for the thousands and tens of thousands of dollars of labor I have put, and continue to put, into this website.

In all of this, I refuse to obscure the truth with greed and advertising.

My motive is healing, and everything on this website has been made available to all in the hope that integrity might flourish.
