Center for Attention

Rehabilitation & Education

C.A.R.E. is a non-profit organization offering transformative education, consulting and coaching services to underserved populations in our community who may not otherwise have access to unconventional or alternative attention approaches to their acute or chronic experiences of loss and trauma. 


C.A.R.E. clients tend to be those individuals who are ready for relief from feelings of loneliness, isolation, sadness and grief; our clients are motivated to resolve feelings of alienation and are willing to risk experiencing belonging, purpose and meaning in their lives.


C.A.R.E. offers experiential attention education with the intention of rehabilitating each person’s innate capacity to attend to themselves; to attend to difficult and painful, repressed personal experiences as well as everyday joy and delight. Participants develop emotional maturity and self-acceptance, which allows living to resume.

While we extend a special invitation to veterans and their families, we will work with anyone who meets our criteria and is willing to make a commitment to participation in our program. 


from the Latin, 

ad- "to"+ tendere - "stretch"

Sense of "taking care". . .

compassionate patience.

Related: tender, tenderness, attending

“At C.A.R.E. our offering is guided by the notion of "stretching" from an anchor or weight in one's own center toward a resonant point of connection in something or someone else.”

What we offer . . .

Transformative Learning Center®

We establish a foundation for lasting psychological change, as well as physical and emotional healing.  We help our clients answer the question so many people ask about "how to" get from where they are in life, to where they want to be.

Transformative Neuro-Linguistic Coaching®

 Participants learn to embody and apply newly acquired attentional skills in everyday life. Clients develop their own personal resources, gain tools they can apply to everyday circumstances and all relationships.

Transformative Consulting®

Clients are supported in identifying their unique skills, aptitudes and passions. They are supported in incorporating those abilities into satisfying and self-sustaining professional lives.  

Transformative Constellations®

Providing access to unconventional and alternative educational and therapeutic approaches to understanding the limiting and often unconscious beliefs that influence unwanted, yet unchanging adult behaviors.


Your thoughtful and generous support is gratefully received.

May your kind attention and good-will come back to you ten-fold.
