I have been fascinated by the human paradox for as long as I can remember.

On the one hand, each of us is a unique individual with our own characters, cognitive abilities and personal histories. We hail from diverse ethnic groups, cultures and belief systems. Yet we all have one thing in common: We derive our greatest strength and sustenance from the enduring relationships we forge with our family, friends, colleagues and communities.

I’ve spent my professional life exploring this paradox as a clinical psychologist, motivational speaker and author.

I’m delighted to share the results of my work here on this website.
