About Me

The work starts with you loving you;

with you, as an administrator or manager, embracing Cultural Competence;

with you, as an educator, embracing Relationship-add-Relevance-then-Rigor in your curriculum continuum;

with you, as a love partner, knowing enough about your partner to say

"I Will Be What You Are Not;"

and/or you, as a parent, accepting the role of Respect/Guide/Cheerleader rearing continuum.

Finding Your Way BACK To LOVE Is The Key!

I have had sessions with John off-and-on for the past seven years. Each time I am rejuvenated, I go further, and I am so glad that I found him! Jennette A. of Houston, TX
We almost gave up on love after 15 years of marriage, then we decided to give John a try. He helped us understand ourselves and one another better, gave us some ideas, and now I am proud to say that we have a solid, active love-affair again. Tammy and Bill S. of Nashville, TN
My children and I eat to live now. I had tried so many diets, and all of them claimed to have the answer but what I learned from Mr. Pham changed our lives. No more vegetable oils, floured breads, and cat fish. So glad that I found him. - Lauryn P., in Webster, TX
I feel so much better. I had a bleeding ulcer. After a long conversation with John, I had a better way to address it naturally and now I don't feel that pain in my gut. I can eat again. - J. Gonzales, Houston, TX
Learning to love myself was a journey, to say the least. I knew that I could be a challenge to deal with sometimes, but John didn’t make me feel that way. He was patient, respectful of where I was and his sharing of his past lessons put me at ease. He continues to be a great coach for me. Greg P. of Phoenix, AZ
John is a must for anyone who is dealing with a challenging child! He helped me understand my own child better. John’s interventions helped me and my teenage son work out a compromise that we both can live with and now things are so much better. Richard B. of Waco, TX
