More About Lou

I believe that to live a good life, a person should learn to do something of value, very well, then serve others with that knowledge. As an Emotions Advisor, Educator, Speaker, Author, and founder of Our Emotional Life I dedicate my life to the service and well-being of others.

Like most of us, I grew up without understanding where emotions come from or how to regulate and control them. I received the standard responses in regards to my emotions like, it will pass, don't worry about it, it will be ok, or my favorite, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Well, I learned that what doesn't kill you doesn't always make you stronger. Sometimes the pain didn't pass. Sometimes painful emotions create lasting emotional consequences. Like the rest of us, I tucked away my feelings because that's what I thought I was supposed to do. No one told me otherwise. Emotions weren't discussed.


Noticing a lack of substantive programs that focused on the key factors related to a positive and productive emotional life, and how many people lacked knowledge of their emotions, how they develop, and how to control and improve them, I was motivated to start Our Emotional Life, a business that allows people to understand and improve their emotional life. There should be a resource for people seeking to improve emotional control and reduce stress, over worry anxiety, and depression. 

Using the current neuroscience research I provide access to a credible source of knowledge and practice methodology for the understanding and development of our emotional life, to learn how our brain builds itself in early childhood influences our emotional temperament and personality.
