When it comes to my coaching, I’m an expert at what I do. I’ve got the street cred. The experience. The skills. And the qualifications. However, we should probably give a group nod to the fact that I am not a licensed psychologist or health care professional, and my services don’t replace the care of psychologists or other healthcare professionals. (Though I do own a pretty impressive green suede couch, thankyouverymuch.) With that comes the standard eye-glaze inducing disclaimer that, no, I cannot actually guarantee the outcome of our coaching efforts and/or recommendations on my website/blog/email series, and my comments about the outcome are expressions of (my very personal) opinion only. I can guarantee you this, however: I will do my best to coach you, and I’ll do everything in my power to help.

As for my blog, it is a resource guide for educational and informational purposes. (And sometimes venting about family members, the insanity of addiction in families, and the crazy shiz the committee in my head tries to tell me.) To write my articles, I use my own experience, strength and hope, the experiences of others, my coaching training, and various other resources including but not limited to the wild wild web, the Encyclopedia Britannica (what? you didn’t buy the extended library collection of 1989?) and/or The Bible. (Kidding. But maybe not. Actually, I love A Course in Miracles – not kidding!) That said, my advice doesn’t come with any guarantees. By visiting this site, you’re essentially signing a contract that says that you understand that I make no guarantees, and you won’t try to sue me or report me to the Obama administration. Because that? Would be awkward. Nshould you blame it on Obama! That would just be dumb. You, and only you, are responsible for what you do with the content of this site.
