Hi, I'm Paul.

For the past 30 years, I’ve been privileged to work at enhancing other’s lives. My practice ranges from psychotherapy (treating a range of emotional issues) to athletic peak performance.

And, I have a dojo where I teach karate for children grades K - 12. Unlike commercial programs, my focus is on life enhancement through karate.

"Paul Sweetow is a very kind, trustworthy and knowledgeable person and social worker. He is forward thinking, clever and our family always had a good relationship with him. I would recommend Paul to anyone searching for a child advocate and anyone seeking therapy, including adults. The burden of life is much lighter when you ask Paul for help. I strongly recommend his talents."
