Get Real: The Hazards of Living Out of Your False Self
This book shows you how to move out of overusing your False Self and strengthening your True Self. Your False Self shows up in two very different ways: as a deflated or depressed False Self and an inflated or narcissistic False Self. Some people have symptoms stemming from both conditions. The hazards you face by living out of your False Self, in either case, include victim behaviors, depression, anxiety, addictions, narcissistic behaviors, toxic shame, projections, and poor decisions that likely involve you trying to please others rather than being true to yourself. Are you ready to change that?

Intimate Combat: Conflict Resolution Skills For Couples
After working with many couples and others in my private practice as a licensed psychologist, I have found the two most prevalent reasons they have trouble resolving their conflicts: A lack of an understanding of how past unresolved conflicts and unhealed traumas “bleed through” and make it more difficult to resolve their current conflicts, and a lack of skills in conflict resolution. This book provides information and skill training that addresses these two issues for anybody who is experiencing a conflict. Without addressing these two problems, people usually avoid resolving their conflicts at all costs.
Real Men Series: Book One – The Male Mother: The Missing Skill Set For Fathers
This book is the first in a series of four books aimed at helping men develop and integrate their feminine side. The culture has emphasized the masculine side of men and devalued the feminine side. This has left many fathers, who may want to be a vital part of raising their kids, without the nurturing skills necessary to do the job.

Chinese philosopher, the author presents a new, and refreshing look at what a future world might look like if we had more servant leaders at all levels.
Real Men Series: Book Three – The Wise Elder: The Missing Skill Set For Male Elders
The Wise Elder represents Logos, which, according to Jung, also is a feminine principle. He is the archetype behind a multitude of professions like doctors, lawyers, teachers, and clergy. He mentors younger men using the wisdom he has gained through his experiences. By using his intuition he is able to see the unseen.
Real Men Series: Book Four – The Open-Hearted Lover: Love Is All You Need
Only through supporting the union of our feminine and masculine sides can our culture prosper and grow. The Open-Hearted Lover embraces the “we,” not the “me” in relationships and society. The shadow of the Lover is impotent, sterile, and without compassion. He also can destroy spiritual connections between people with just one cynical remark.
Conflict Resolution: The Partnership Way
The book is divided into four parts. Part One provides an overview of the Partnership Way, its theoretical foundation, and the key components of the model. In Part Two, readers learn how to apply the model to resolve interpersonal conflicts concerning wants, needs, values, and beliefs. Part Three demonstrates how to resolve intractable conflicts that involve unmet needs related to unhealed development traumas. The final part of the text focuses on the application of the Partnership Way to resolving conflicts in schools, professions, communities, cultures, nation-states, and the history of the human race.
Developmental Trauma: The Game Changer in the Mental Health Profession

This perspective empowers readers toward intrapsychic integration and personal transformation.
Twisted Beliefs Series: Book One - Distorting The Lines Between Fantasy and Reality

Twisted Beliefs Series: Book Three – How To Identify And Change Your Twisted Beliefs
How do lies, shaming, and judgment affect you? Most people can give you a long list of what they believe is wrong with them but are hard-pressed to think of any good qualities. Most of us are told we’re not “good enough” in some important way and told enough times that we believed this must be true. This process begins very early in life. Research shows that parents say the word “no” to their child over 20,000 times before he/she reaches the age of two. And most of this is delivered with judging and shaming facial expressions. Most people don’t realize how damaging it is to base their life on twisted beliefs. If this happened to you, what can you do to change your negative beliefs about yourself?

By reading this book you will discover the personal freedom that lies beyond your beliefs: your inner knowing of the truth and how to use it to chart the course of your life’s journey.
Twisted Beliefs Series - How They Cause Premature Hardening of the Categories
Do you know someone who seems to be smart but also has self-defeating or maybe even self-destructive behavior? I would describe these people as suffering from premature hardening of the categories. In other words, they hold on to rigid and twisted beliefs that keep them stuck in their development. This book helps you, the reader, learn what these twisted beliefs look like, where they came from, what hidden effects they can have on your life, and how you can change this situation.
