Drawing from my training in transpersonal, somatic, and Buddhist psychologies, attachment theory, distress tolerance practices, the Enneagram and my foundational view of relationship as path, I specialize in pinpointing self-limiting beliefs—and the underlying core deficiency state that we organize our personalities around—to quickly reveal the evolutionary opportunities presented by life and relationship challenges.
When we resist reality in the form of the disturbing parts of how we feel, we suffer; we feel anxious, fragmented and dissatisfied. When we, instead, recognize and embrace reality, we feel calm, present and at peace.
In my work, I invite men and couples to align with reality, often through acceptance of inner disturbance. In this radical approach, I specialize in quick, clear, incisive pinpointing of the core organizational personality beliefs that run and limit our lives and relationships, revealing the deeper qualities of who we really are. I give clear guidance and proven methods for turning pain and conflict into wakeful, empowered ways of being, relating and doing.
Stepping into the challenges of relationship and life paves the way for rediscovery of inherent qualities of wholeness, vitality and freedom. Through this, we come to find the energy to fuel meaningful change and step toward freedom, awakening and purpose.
