Tom holds a Master’s degree in Social Work, a Bachelor’s degree in Business, and a C-MAT certificate in Drugs & Alcohol. As a young man, Tom became a successful entrepreneur with a proven track record in small business ventures in the greater New York area. About 20 years ago, Tom started to spend less time in the business world and more time helping those who suffered, as he did, from negative childhood messages. He is a regular on many radio stations and on the TBN television network, and has appeared on other networks as well. He is the best-selling author of The Problem Was Me, with Dr. Abraham Twerski, and Don’t Put Your Crap in Your Kid’s Diaper. His expertise is teaching a methodology which has helped many individuals, couples, and parents build healthier relationships with themselves and each other. His work comes from his experiences in overcoming his own issues, which revealed the process for self-improvement. His obstacles began in childhood when he turned to bullying as an outlet and as an adult, toward addiction. After sabotaging intimate relationships in his own life, Tom realized he had to fix the damage within himself in order to fix the damage he caused in his relationships.
