Choosing Kindness, by Dr. Dan Peters
Dr. Dan Peters writes about this late grandmother in this piece in Psychology Today, " "Choosing Kindness - How my grandmother and Wayne Dyer taught me the secret to a full life." 

"I am inspired daily by the love and kindness of my grandmother and the life and messages of Wayne Dyer. When you have a choice of being right or wrong, choose kind. Lead with kindness and love. Imagine what our world would be like if we all did this. I challenge you to be kind in all situations and see what happens. You will be pleasantly surprised."

Summit Center Services for Gifted Adults
Paula Wilkes Ph.D. Coach for Gifted Children and Adults
Are you feeling misunderstood at work or in your relationships?
Many of our services that we offer for children can also be very helpful for adults.

Many gifted adults may find that they are still suffering from experiences and challenges that affected them as children. Others find they are experiencing new challenges related to finding their passion, identity, parenting, relationships, career, and more.
  • Having a hard time concentrating at work?
  • Do you care that your spouse, colleagues or supervisors just don't seem to "get" you?
  • Has your child been diagnosed with something that you suspect you also have?
We provide a broad range of services for gifted adults, including consultation, testing, counseling, and more. We can work with you on issues related to giftedness and beyond, such as sensitivity, intensity, and social skills. Services are available via Skype for clients based elsewhere.
