It has been written, I have unusual insight into the problems of human existence. My ability to assist people on their journey to overcome life’s challenges comes from an inner wellspring of Spirit. Additionally, my studies help me analyze how and why things work in our lives. Credentials and degrees are the usual criteria for works such as this book. I have qualifications, just not ones that fit into the expected norm. By profession, I am a counselor, motivational speaker, and writer. I have been involved in teaching metaphysics for over 50 years. I began in science as a mathematician, then in the arts as a freelance writer, and in religion as a minister and counselor. These three distinct careers have blended to provide practical examples, forming the basis for new insights into easier, happier, and more prosperous lives. Climbing Out of Depression is intended to provide motivation, hope, and guidance for overcoming the roadblocks, detours, and dead ends that occur for everyone. I invite you to climb the ladder to escape into the fullness of life.
