Ordained as Buddhist clergy in the Middle-Way Peace Order, certified as a coach and hypnotist by the NLP Center Of New York, I offer evidence based recovery and resilience training. I've developed tools for stress management, mindfulness, non-violent communication, sensory integration and neurolinguistic programming to reduce and ultimately eradicate limiting beliefs, habitual behavior, and conditioned learning.
I help folks with addiction, ADD, OCD, codependency and general anxiety to experience confidence, serenity and rational compassion. The success of these tools lies with our commitment to use them and a willingness to upgrade when we're ready for more personal freedom. Powerful resilience and intentional living starts with awareness, agency and action.
My ADD contributed to what was critiqued as indecisiveness, a trait I now recognize as extreme flexibility. I have healed the self-deprecation and reduced the scatteredness that comes with perfectionism. As a writer and compulsive editor, that was a huge relief. My coaching utilizes editing of internal scripts that cripple or empower a sense of agency (the awareness of choice.) This has provided much healing for me, my clients and students, who include therapists, health and human service providers and educators. Professional care-givers work especially hard to maintain compassion and avoid empathic distress. The Wellness Work enables these daily heroic efforts to be carried out with ease. The most important lessons I ever learned were about how to love my life until it started loving me back. No drug, drink, object or accolade has ever compared with the high I get watching others receive that gift is what gets me up in the morning.
One client calls me the mutant love child of Tony Robbins and Pema Chodrin.
I suspect I'm actually channelling George Carlin.
