Bruce M. Di Marsico, 1942-1995

Bruce M. Di Marsico

Bruce Di Marsico created the Option Method to help people help themselves to find their deepest wisdom and happiness. The foundation of his approach to helping people was based on his recognition that people were unhappy because they believed that they should be. He understood that people believed that it was good and necessary to feel bad. Bruce believed that people had a choice when it came to their emotions.

Since Bruce’s death, his students and his widow, Deborah Mendel, have continued to help people become happier by teaching them how to use the Option Method Dialogue.
