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 in 1980. 
At least 1 in 5 people struggle with some form of mental health problem during their lifetime. 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'll find ways to make your life even better and more likely 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 “How Ziggy and Wally Saved the World” is available from the Apple Book Store and Kindle. If you like humorous sci-fi stories like Ghostbusters, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy or perhaps Men in Black you’ll probably like my short story. My friend Kate Stott painted the cover and Gord Matthews and his son Travis contributed music. (e-books are read on portable devices such Kindle e-readers or iPad/iPhones etc.)







E-Book "Tune Up Your Mind and Your Life" is available from iTunes Apple Books here.
