The FPTM has also proven to effectively guide others who have experienced trauma toward understanding and healing. His diverse career paths and life experiences combined to set in motion these two innovative programs which have helped countless individuals and groups alike, and are the direct result of D.C.’s many years of leading, following, and practical experience.
