“What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” -Mary Oliver


In addition to coaches and teachers, I’ve had the great privilege of being trained by many fine mentors and masters. The majority of my professional development training is in transformational coaching, applied neuroscience, pastoral counseling, meditation, alternative medicine, trauma resolution, and Eastern psychology as it relates to character development and peak performance. In addition to my formal graduate school training at Harvard Divinity School, I spent 7 years in private practice as a therapeutic massage therapist and body-centered pastoral counselor. The following list represents more than twenty years of professional development. I often get asked how I’ve come to know what I know. The answer is more than what’s below, but the list offers some measure of the scope and depth of my training.
