About Me

How Unresolved Trauma Affects Us

I founded the Never Give Up Institute to help you understand how unresolved stress and trauma can cause illness, increase financial difficulty, and keep you from living a meaningful life.

Why? Because you deserve more!

Welcome to a paradigm shift in how we view our health and how to make the necessary changes to control our healthcare costs.
