The following is a summary of the services provided by Best Self USA, the Sponsor of Solomon Answers.
Best Self Noetics
Services for the Gifted and Talented
I am so excited to announce our new department called Best Self Noetics. This is a program for the gifted and talented. High functioning individuals have difficulty responding to conventional therapy techniques,, and frequently need customized/individualized services. They also have problems that are unique to gifted people. Business executives, computer programmers. inventors and engineers, artists, actors, writers, scientists, etc. have special needs that we hope to address with our Best Self Noetics program.
We have been working with gifted children and adults for decades. Because of our connections to High IQ organizations, we have the reputation of being “shrinks to the mad geniuses” and have thus created a special department for this client base. Several of our counselors and MDs are High IQ Society members.
Since many of our clients are high achievers with significant incomes, (ie executives, scientists, engineers, writers, actors, musicians, etc) our customized Best Self Noetics sessions are delivered as an honorarium for significant contributions, from which we fund scholarships for less fortunate families and children.
Best Self USA is a 508(c)(1)(a) non-profit, tax exempt, Faith-Based Organization (FBO) registered with the Florida Department of State Division of Corporations since 1990.
All Best Self Noetics programs are custom designed for the individual.
For more information on how you can benefit from theses services please call (239) 591 4565, or contact email@example.com.
How is Best Self USA unique?
“Not everyone needs psychotherapy. Most problems can be solved by learning skills for living. Solution-focused education costs less money and is faster. Sometimes all people need is to learn how to do it right.”

Youth & Student Services
Rev. Sam Sewell is a Gifted Youth Coordinator for MENSA, the high I.Q. society. Revs Sam and Bunny Sewell work together in their sessions. This provides minors with the “mother/father” dynamic to the counseling experience. The Sewells have decades of experience in establishing meaningful therapeutic relationships with children and teens.
The Sewells also offer a Pre-College Life Skills Program for college bound young people so they can learn the skills for living a successful life that are not taught in high school.
Marriage & Family Counseling
A husband and wife therapy team brings both the male and female perspective to working on areas such as pre-marital counseling, helping troubled couples, effective parenting skills, caring for the elderly, and grief related events for the entire family.
Private Executive Coaching
In the 1970s Sam Sewell served on the faculty of Sterling College where he researched and created the Marketing and Management Science Curriculum. Sam guided the core curriculum through the federal accreditation process based on scientific management principles developed by Abraham Maslow (Eupsychian Management), Peter Drucker (Drucker on Management), Douglas McGregor (The Human Side of Enterprise), and the work of John Nash, winner of the Nobel Prize for economics, who mathematically demonstrated that more wealth is created by cooperation than competition.
Best Self USA is well known for finding nutritional solutions to emotional problems.
|Education and Training|
Cognitive/ Behavioral Therapy uses education and training to achieve results. Personality profiles, books, workbooks, videos, audio CDs, and many other tools are used to help obtain the solutions that are needed. These tools reduced the cost while enhancing the effectiveness of the therapeutic experience.
Biofeedback has many therapeutic applications, but the primary goal of biofeedback training at Best Self USA is to empower the individuals to have volitional input into and management of the autonomic functions that create stress and emotions.

Grief Counseling Services
Grief counseling is highly personalized. People process their grief experiences in unique ways. The need for grief counseling may also appear in circumstances beyond death of a loved one. Children or grandchildren moving out of the area may create a need for grief counseling. Sometimes the death of a family pet can create the symptoms of grief. It takes years of experience for a grief counselor to be skilled and wise enough to handle this very delicate psychological need. Dr. Bunny Sewell is the department head of Grief Counseling at Best Self USA. The Best Self USA staff is able to offer counseling to grief stricken family members in the privacy of their own homes or offices, locally or via the internet. We offer the materials and techniques developed from decades of long distance counseling done at Best Self USA.

Clergy and Lay Leader Support

We offer the materials and techniques developed from decades of long distance counseling done at Best Self USA. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
