Beyond Pain and Suffering
Adapting to Adversity and Life Challenges

To move beyond pain and suffering does not necessarily mean to live without pain and suffering. It means learning to adapt to adversity to prevent our physical and/or emotional challenges from becoming the dominant force in our lives. We all experience hardships in our lives as well as unpredictable stressors such as pain, trauma, diseases and other illnesses, financial trouble, relationship issues, loss, fear, anxiety, and depression, to name just a few. This book provides practical concepts and strategies for how to cope and manage these and other situations to reduce the pain and suffering they bring, be it physical, emotional, or both. When we learn to adapt to adversity, we live beyond our pain and suffering, meaning that the most difficult parts of our life are no longer the most significant parts of our life.

Client Testimonials

Thank you so much for your continued support as my coach, Tom. Your first hand knowledge of this chronic condition and the helpful information you share have been invaluable. Your positive personality shines through and is appreciated. You deliver powerful messages in an unassuming manner. Prior to speaking with you, I felt like I was “running out of steam” in my efforts to move forward with my Dystonia challenges. However, because of our conversations, you have shed light and hope for my future Dystonia journey. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

R.S. – New York

Tom was just what I needed when I was finding my path after being diagnosed with a chronic illness. He is compassionate and understanding, extremely positive, open-minded, and very intuitive. I highly recommend getting in touch with Tom if you are looking for some extra help or direction, encouragement, support or just an uplifting conversation.

J.C. – Kansas

During a very difficult time I was suicidal and heading for dangerous addiction. I credit Tom with helping me find my way out. He will always have a special place in my heart because of it. He really listens and tailors his help to the individual. Tom is a natural mentor.

C.M. – New Jersey

You put things in a way that are so rational and logical, yet encouraging and reassuring!

R.S. – Canada

I probably don’t thank you enough, but the time you dedicate to help me through life’s challenges means a lot.
You’re a good man and the world needs more people like you.

J.C. – North Carolina

You make me think, you make me grow, and you challenge me. You are an amazing person!

E.C. – Texas

Tom creates an environment of safety right away. He was able to get to the heart of the matter quickly.
His ability to support the feelings involved while addressing the facts make him an excellent coach.

K.B. – Michigan

You have been an asset in my life and an outstanding coach. I can only see you helping others in such a positive way as you have helped me. You have given me helpful tools to use going forward.

J.D. – New York

As always, you have summed up what’s going on with me in a nutshell. Just reading an email from you perks up my day and gives me hope. Bless you for being out there day after day with great advice and inspiration for the rest of us

A.M. – Indiana

Tom has an ease when coaching you through a situation that any notion that you’re being “coached” falls to the side. I can say without Tom’s coaching I’m fairly certain I would still be sitting at the crossroads feeling trapped. I now feel 10 lbs. lighter and 10 years younger.
