Thank you for inquiring about what I do. I come from a non-traditional therapeutic path and the nature of my work is to guide other people on their own journey of self-exploration.
I have spent the last three decades training and exploring different ways to allow both myself and other people to inquire into the reality that we share and to find ways to expand consciousness.
One of the key things for me in this whole journey has been to maintain a real sense of what is true and what is not. When I was younger I got a bachelors in Zoology. I’ve found that having this scientific background has helped me discriminate between what’s effective and reproducible in therapy and what’s not.
Years ago, I founded a company called Manifest. I spent four years conducting workshops, classes, seminars, and individual coaching for gay men in San Francisco. In addition, I spoke on the Whole Life Expo circuit using the topic of “The Metaphysics of Being Gay” as our mutual ground. I have also facilitated workshops with the California Men’s Gathering, Marin AIDS Clinic, and the Discovery Community.
As an adjunct to my work with Manifest I was a member of an experimental team in the occupational medicine unit at Kaiser Hospital. Our reeducation group helped people get back to work or to find a new path after an occupational injury or illness.
I was in Germany for another three years participating in various group experiences that allowed me to have mentor training while exploring myself. I spent a half a year at the Osho Commune in India studying esoteric science, past life regression, childhood issues, and meditation. Back in my youth I also had another three years doing the programs associated with The Forum and Landmark Education.
I’ve traveled back and forth across the United States experiencing lots of different groups and techniques. Some of the people that have been key in my own unfolding are Dan Millman, Bill Bowen, Mark Ludwig, Brugh Joy, Bernie Siegal, Siegmar Gerken, Tony Robbins, George Rosen, Greg Paxson, Marleen Mulder, Gabriel Halpern, Phillip Scott, Cornelia Gerken, Randal Churchill, and Francesca McCartney.
You may find it useful to know some of the specific techniques that I’ve trained in so that you can choose whether to work with me in order to create effective results for you. I hold a Masters from the Somatic Psychology Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Other certifications and trainings include Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist, Master NLP Practitioner & Trainer, Massage Therapist, Intuitive Counselor, Regression Therapy, Core Energetics, and Reiki Master.
If you have any questions or need further clarification, please give me a call or email me. I’d be happy to meet with you and to explore how we can work together.
I look forward to hearing from you.
