Peace of Mind
Clive, Iowa, United States
After being a social worker for 34 years, including 27 years in clinical practice, my life and my practice changed dramatically in 2008, when I was introduced to the 3 Principles, "a new paradigm of hope." Although I still see persons of all ages, with all kinds of struggles, I know that my task is to point them to the health and wisdom that are already within them, knowing that they will find their own answers. I have a full-time practice, and am generally in my office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. My colleague and I also lead a free weekly "3P lunch and learn" discussion group at our office, open to all clients and community members.
