“I was unsure how an interventionist could possibly help us. However, now that my son has accepted treatment, I am ever grateful that we found a conductor of your caliber to handle our intervention.”

James, your empathy and conviction to act promptly was of utmost value to us.


“It’s hard to find the right words to say to you. You were like our guardian angel when we were the most afraid and alone. You were there to listen, educate, advise and walk us through a process we knew little about. Sunday was a hard, hard day for me but having you there was a huge relief. You are truly amazing at what you do. Your email to the group was so thoughtful and it came at the perfect time – when we needed reassurance that we were doing everything we could for Bob. Thank you for your updates. Bob is on my mind throughout the day and it is so comforting to hear how he is. Thank you so much for all that you do for us – we are so lucky to have you! I will definitely give copies of your emails to my parents. They appreciate your efforts soooo much. As for sending out emails to the rest of the group – I know they think of Bob often and really appreciate your updates.”

James, thank you for guiding us through this amazing transformation.


“… I just wanted to touch base and tell you that I spoke to John today … My brother John …. whom I haven’t spoken with for a long time!!!! It was so awesome to hear him talk with me the way he used to and without using the old favorite word once!!!! James, I really have to say that I feel that God sent us an angel when you arrived here in Regina. I am so grateful for all that you did for me and my family, but especially for my brother. I really don’t envy the trip you had to B.C. with him!!! My parents are thankful for you as well and will never forget how calm and cool you were when the going got rough there for a while. I am so grateful for the follow-up emails you have been sending and even though I haven’t replied until now, please know that I appreciate the updates and the kind words from you.”

I knew I had little energy to steer anything, so hearing that it was your role to organize this effort, I found the strength to proceed.


“Your respectful guidelines, assistance arranging the treatment centre, direction during the intervention and your calm assurance that we could not make a mistake were what pulled our efforts together.”

“The alcoholic in our lives is now a ‘recovering alcoholic’ and is attending support groups and doctors for the ongoing support that is needed for full recovery. James and Janice met our family needs on a personal as well as professional level. I highly recommend them!”
