After a career in engineering, excruciating pain put me on a path of research and training that introduced me to the mind-body methods that helped me to heal the trauma that turned out to be at the root of my physical pain. These are the same methods I have been teaching to individuals and groups in my mind-body healing and coaching practice since 2001.
I serve as a mentor to coaches, clinicians and agents of change here to transform the world for the better, and help others do the same, and I write, speak and consult, teaching simple ways to make practical use of the mind-body connection for emotional healing.
I've studied with the Medical Doctors who founded the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, and the Academy for Guided Imagery, trained with Mindful Schools, with Shamans, and many healers; some grounded in scientific research, others wildly instinctual.
A graduate of the Academy for Guided Imagery and the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, I'm a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Alchemical Hypnotherapist, Inner Guidance Life Coach, Teacher of Mind-Body Skills and creator of Renegade Meditationsm - a root cause resolving method of mind-body exploration and discovery.
Together with what I think of as heroic souls on healing journeys (‘clients’), I've developed a uniquely transformative blend of mind-body tools to relieve stress, pain and anxiety; change unwanted habits, and feel peaceful, confident and empowered. Tools that support those in transition between their life as it has been and the new life they want to create, in ways that access and utilize your own unique genius; in service to your unique mission and purpose.
Facilitating holistic recovery for trauma survivors; teaching educators, helping-professionals and clinicians to incorporate mind-body skills into their work; and helping high achievers reach beyond their limits is the focus of my work.
