PHILOSOPHY

My intention is to help people identify who they are at their core, what it is they would like to experience, and then help them create a magnificent reality. I believe it is important that humans beings know they are not alone, and I do my work to give support to human beings.

My work uses a hybrid scientific and intuitively-tailored approach and I focus on disseminating scientific information in a digestible language. My approach integrates multiple areas to support the self-actualization of individuals, based on who they are, including: evidence-based findings and strategies from Positive Psychology, Sports Psychology, Relationship Science, Neuroscience, Physics, Cognitive Psychology, Motivational Psychology, Social Psychology and Humanistic Psychology, Meditation, Yoga and Physics.  

I am dedicated to the integrity and fairness of all human beings, and committed to listening and giving each individual the information and professional support they need.

It is a privilege to help people who are committed to actively discovering, honoring and accepting their true selves, and who aim to activate their unique and creative gifts and thus, create and experience a life that is richly fulfilling.
