My message to you...

You may not have a formal diagnosis, but you know that the life you are living is not the life you really want. Maybe it’s not so bad, but you know things could definitely be better. This is where I can help. 

Modern Solutions | Compassion-focused | Accountability

I’ve dedicated my life to helping people just like you learn, heal and progress. Without hesitation, I can promise you that brighter days are ahead. I hope we have the opportunity to visit soon. 

Early Career

My journey in education began in the vibrant setting of religious education for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Focused on creating positive systemic change, my work centered on addressing the unique needs of students and teachers grappling with disabilities and emotional difficulties.


Over time, my path led me to a pivotal role as a senior director, where I oversaw initiatives related to mental and emotional wellness, suicide prevention, disability advocacy, and other sensitive topics including incarceration and abuse. This role allowed me to travel the world, collaborating with experts and gaining invaluable insights.

The Big Change

Upon retiring, I made a conscious decision to raise my own voice, dedicating myself to helping individuals overcome and progress amidst life’s most challenging events. My mission is rooted in compassion, understanding, and a commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of others.


Today, Jeanine and our family of six children are thriving, surrounded by happiness and positivity. In the midst of our busy lives, we find immense joy in the time we spend together, cherishing the moments that strengthen our family bonds, believing in the transformative power of a strong and supportive marriage for one another.

The Future

Our collective focus remains unwavering – dedicated to helping our clients belong, contribute, and progress in their journeys. Our passion for empowerment, particularly for women, and efforts to nurture successful marriages and families continue to drive our efforts.

"Above all, be sensitive.
I mean it, really be sensitive to all people
and in all things.
That's the best path to happiness that I know".

-Doug Richens
