"I am humbled and awed." —Nancy Haynsworth, American Red Cross Instructor Trainer, Fitness/Aquatics Coordinator
Air Force/Navy Joint Base Charleston Weapons Station, Charleston, SC

"I appreciate your intuitive and psychic approach and your grounded way of relaying this information so that it doesn't sound "woo-woo." I believe you're using a (r)evolutionary approach to teaching and to helping people overcome fear." —Nancy Ward, Total Immersion, New York

"I learned that fears are real and need to be acknowledged and accepted before being overcome. By coming to this training with my staff, I feel that we'll prevent future participants from becoming afraid adults by stopping fear while students are young. —Margee Charron, Bubbles to Butterfly Swim School, Connecticut
