What do you want out of yourself ?

We all know the adage, “You only go ’round once in life.” To your own requirements, how’s your journey going? If you could use some help,  maybe we’re just the place for you. At GRO you will find an ever-expanding set of tools to help you develop the life you’re looking for. The journey begins with an honest answer to a very short and simple question – are you happy with you?

What do you want out of your relationships ?

One of the quickest ways to misery is relational conflict. Friction with your spouse or significant other, a parent or child, a friend – will snatch a lot of joy from you. Do you know how to give and take, how to lead and follow, how to trust, how to forgive, how to let go of the petty? Let us show you how to make the significant relationships in your life thrive!

What do you want out of your work ?

It is all but impossible to have a fulfilled life and hate your job. Does your work energize you? Or do you feel like you’re fighting the geometry between the proverbial peg and the hole? Or maybe you know what you want to do but fear going for it… or simply don’t know how to get there. Let us help you find your way – fulfillment both in and through your work is yours for the taking!

Over the years it has been our privilege to help people resolve many challenges: marriage conflict, parenting problems, grief, depression, anxiety, career choices, and on and on. But these are usually – though certainly not always – just the presenting problem.

Far and away, the #1 reason people seek us out is an existential one… they want help clarifying the meaning and purpose of their life.

Instinctively, we want our lives to count… we want a rich, rewarding experience out of our journey. Again, it’s the chief reason people come to us.

Yes, we will help you with any problem areas. You can count on that.

But beyond that, our passion is to help you discover the path that you may already know in your heart is right for you… to build that life you were created to experience.

That’s why GRO is here.



Our clients tell us…

Growth Resources Online, Personal Growth, Online Courses is the web extension of Growth Resources, a private counseling/coaching practice we began in 1990.

What you will find inside Growth Resources Online is the best of everything our years in private practice have taught us, distilled into a user-friendly package full of practical insights and hands-on instruction with one chief purpose in mind – your equipping and empowerment.

(This project has been five years in the planning and two years in the making!)

And our material is completely proprietary. That is, we develop it ourselves out of our own academic training and ongoing education (requisite continuing ed),  our many years of experience in helping people just like you, and diligent continual research. In other words, we don’t offer “scour the web and cut and paste” information.

Simply put, GRO is a fresh, one-of-a-kind approach to helping ordinary people achieve extraordinary life changes that stick.
