About Me

I Can Help You Survive Trauma and Stress!

Alex at a Book Fair



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.
