Not All Telephone Counseling is created equal! .

       My affordable and convenient service is effective for three reasons:

1.   I have the knowledge and experience necessary to answer almost any quandary
       or quagmire. I've been helping people find solutions for more than 20 years.

2.  I don't offer the same ideas or intervention compared to a typical therapist,
       psychologist, or psychiatrist — What I offer actually works! I teach
       powerful principles that bring about the only change that matters:

The only change that matters is a change of heart,
every other change alters us cosmetically but not fundamentally,
modifies how we appear, what we do or what we say,
but does not change who we are
- C. Terry Warner.

3.  I use a unique resource, "Changing Your Stripes," a book specifically written
       to supplement private telephone counseling.
It contains every idea and principle
       that will solve your situation. My Book presents an intelligent explanation of:

        * The Animal that You Are:     SELF,
* The Zoo You Live In:   your SITUATION, and the principles for
* Recovering the True You:   SOLUTIONS

The Principles detailed in Changing Your Stripes will be a reinforcing anchor to ideas discussed in our phone counseling sessions. And when each session ends, I will continue talking and explaining powerful principles through the book, as you read the pertinent parts I will point out.

When Changing Your Stripes is studied conscientiously, telephone consultations will actually be more effective than "face to face" counseling. Here's more good news: My fees are less than the cost of traditional therapy, while the healing and help are greater.

Do the math: Get more, pay less!
