"No one heals himself by wounding another"

St. Ambrose

Dr. Timothy C. Hoffman

                                                                   Founding Director

Practice dedicated to the growth of the person through a Spiritual Journey to the center of self using the Mind, Body, and Soul ... The Psychological, Medical and Spiritual Disciplines... To direct individuals to their center. In life there are basically two choices we can make in response to pain and sorrow. We can choose to get bitter and blame others for our pain, loss, and suffering. Or we can choose to get Better and encounter ourselves in our own pain. It is only through insight, understanding, forgiveness and acceptance that we can learn to love ourselves and others and find the peace, love and joy we all desire. Our motto is taken from Saint Ambrose who said our motto above.
