small heart symbol To Whom It May Concern:

May 2, 2012. After Charles left detox and thirty days of rehab for addiction to oxycodone, Nano agreed to meet with us the day after Charles got home so we could reconnect or separate with a solid base of love for each other and ourselves. With sincerity and compassion, Nano guided us through an intense process never faltering in his belief that we could and would do the work if we chose to do it. He witnessed the love and horror after 29 years of living in truth and lies.

Happy Husband Nano

He helped us sort through layers of honesty and falsehood; it took 3 days of back to back exercises that included love, hate, soul searching, sharing, and listening. Nano’s love and compassion for each of us never faltered as we chose to stay together. After those initial 3 days, he continued to meet with us and help as we reconnected in many new and creative ways. Not only did Nano not take “sides” in this process, I do not think he even saw “sides”; he just saw two different people. He encouraged us to speak and listen with love. When we were unsure of feelings, he helped us find them and pretty much didn’t even blink as he walked us through this. Nano’s assistance was crucial in helping us find a solid footing based in love for a new journey. We truly believe in Nano’s expertise, professionalism, and love as he honored our past, personal desires, and journey.

(Nano, we both agree with this.) Nina & Charles Jones., Sedona, AZ

small heart symbolOne to One Counseling Jan. 2013
I was extremely depressed when I came to Nano for help. He assisted me in identifying what I wanted and needed from my relationship with my husband. Attached is my list of desires that was only developed after I was willing to admit I had wants that were not only not being met but no one (even myself) even knew what they really were. My time with Nano helped me identify when I was not depressed and when I was and what that felt like. He helped me start to ask for what I want and honored that in a way that was new to me. I found courage and action to make my life better. He is very determined to trust the goodness within and encouraged me to honor that goodness by shining a light on it and he helped me take responsibility for doing what I could to shine that light brightly.
