Chip Dodd, PhD, is a teacher, trainer, author, and counselor, who has been working in the field of recovery and redemption for over 30 years. It is the territory in which people can return to living the way we are created to live-where we can move from mere survival to living fully, from isolation to loving deeply, and from controlling to leading others well. In 1996 Chip founded the Center for Professional Excellence in Nashville, where he continues the work of helping people recover their lives. With his clinical experience, love of storytelling, and passion for living fully, Chip developed a way of seeing and expressing one's internal experience called the Spiritual Root System(TM). It expresses the essential heart of human beings and gives practical tools to live fully, love deeply, and lead well.
