Are you happy with who and where you are but want something different for your future? Or are you stuck and need direction and practical steps to get moving? Either way, Forward is for you.

Dr. Neal Nybo focuses on the best aspects of your life. We ask, “What is going right?" not “What is going wrong?" We use several thought exercises to connect with positive elements of your life throughout the day.

Through times of directed reflection, we pay attention to the turning points in your life that have made a powerful, positive impact on who you are. You can expect insight, clarity, direction, motivation and a vision for who you can become.

Genuine change happens when we move from, “I wish" to “I will." With Forward, you gain a clear picture of what you need to do. By the end you will have a printed pathway toward your future. As you begin to follow the pay you designed, it will move you from vision to implementation.

Take the first step, then the next. Soon, you will be going the best way from here to there.
