Success Stories

Read / Listen / Watch ND grads talk about their experiences before, during and (especially) after the workshop!



We get all kinds of thank-you’s and atta-boy’s — via letters, email and IM — here are some of our best.

ND was the single most changing agent I have ever experienced.

Glad I have a place to express my heart! 🙂

Thank you Paula and Matt! You two continue to warm my heart and love unconditionally. You two have been in my life for a long time and I appreciate and value your friendship.

Doing the work is so worth it.

The biggest lack in our mental health system is anger work.  We are letting people down in our society by not figuring this piece out on a national level. Other than New Directions and possibly the program that UYO morphed into, there is not much else out there.

I want to be on top of things and to be able to recommend what I think will work. Tops on my list best used in combo or one at a time:

  • AA (any 12-step, using or not)

  • New Directions

  • Individual therapy

  • The Family Nurturing Programs

I firmly believe that if anyone will avail themselves to these programs, they could improve EVERY area of their lives.

The other things available, like Landmark, are better than nothing, but not as powerful as New me, that is mainly because of lack of good anger work. Those that say, "We'll do that if the student says that's what they want," is bull. VERY FEW people want to do anger work when they don't even know what it is or that it can be totally safe. So, leaving it loosely up to participants doesn't cut least not enough for me to actually recommend it.

So, there's my interest...saving the world.

I know what love looks like its 5 foot 4 inches blonde hair beautiful and she's my wife. love doesn't always have to sacrifice but through this cancer T's love has proven to be more than just a feeling its been an act of her will. She amazingly stayed balanced with support prayers and love from God, friends and family. Empowering herself and then in turn empowering me. She has been cheerleader, confident and caretaker. I am Sure I could of made it through this without her but who in their right mind would want to. I feel so blessed to have her and all of you in my life.
