Best Self USA is very pleased to welcome Rev. Jim Patten to our staff. Rev. Jim brings decades of experience in cognitive/behavioral therapy and will serve as a Counseling Chaplain in our ministry. In his capacity as Counseling Chaplain, Rev. Patten will be available to clergy and lay leaders both locally and nationwide. Many times Christian leaders are reluctant to talk about their stressful situations and confidentiality is of utmost concern. Being sensitive to that concern, Rev. Jim Patten has made his own office available at a separate location from the Best Self USA Clinic and also offers counseling to Christian leaders in the privacy of their own homes or offices. In addition, Rev. Jim can set up a private web conference link to conduct a counseling session via the internet and will be able to offer the materials and techniques developed from decades of long distance counseling done at Best Self USA.

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.

"Since my sessions, I have referred both personal friends and senior staff members to Revs Sam and Bunny at Best Self USA for both private and executive coaching. I know that they will benefit on several levels by learning to manage their reasoning and interaction patterns, and will gain fuller access to skills that will help them achieve elevated levels of success in their personal and corporate endeavors."
CEO Naples FL
"My counselors told me that I could expect significant changes in my life with a dozen therapy sessions. They were wrong. I was done with my problem in six sessions. I stayed with the program for another four sessions, just to make sure I didn't backslide. By the tenth session my counselors told me there was no need to schedule another session. I have been on "as requested" status for more than a year and have only need a couple of "booster shot" phone calls to get me back on track and remind me of what I had already learned."
