After years of neglecting my health and eating the standard American diet, I was diagnosed with auto-immune disease. I took oral chemotherapy for 2 years, and after remaining very ill, decided to heal myself.I succeeded with a combination of holistic approaches and now practice a healthy lifestyle!

Commonly known as Dr. P in the college classrooms, I have been teaching in universities for the past 12 years, focusing on mental health and specializing in addictions treatment and prevention. I decided to focus on chemical dependency because I grew up in a family with drug abuse.

Since then, I have been interested in exploring legitimate, evidence-based pathways to full recovery and maintenance of optimal health using holistic approaches. For 40 years, I have been involved in the study of such healing strategies. I am currently studying at the Maryland University of Integrative Health in their health and wellness coaching program, specializing in holistic nutrition.

I created the Prism Theory of Personality in 1998, which looks into the areas of emotions, thoughts, physical health, and spirituality, and how these four areas interact to create optimal health.
