Hypnotherapy

Through hypnosis, I am able to help clients overcome lifelong fears and phobias, replace bad habits with healthy choices, manage chronic pain, discover their true passions and recharge their personal motivations. Hypnotherapy works both on its own, and alongside any medical treatment you may be receiving. It is drug free, dogma free and pain free. It is neither magical nor mystical. It is just a very effective method of harnessing the extraordinary power of your own mind, with which I have already helped hundreds of people with a wide variety of issues …

Speaking

The quality of the speaker can very much make or break your event. I believe that a great speaker is one who captures your audience’s attention, makes the message very much about them, and leaves them empowered and energized. The secret to my success as a speaker is my ability to tap into my unique life experiences, without making it about me. Whatever your objective, we will work together to craft a presentation that your audience will reflect on for years to come…

When the carnival (occasionally) stops …

Late Summer of 2009 I had an anxiety attack. I’d never had one before (or anything even close to it), so it caught me completely off guard. I was camping in the North, with my son and some of our friends, and woke in the night in my tent – absolutely pitch black – several hours by canoe from anywhere. It started out slowly, with my remembering a call I’d forgotten to make before embarking on the trip (and the client who would be rightly upset with me). I asked myself what other commitments I may not have followed through on… and the flood started. My wedding vows – having left my wife the year previous. My political career – having resigned my candidacy after a year of fruitless campaigning. My real estate business –...

How do you like your trajectory?

One of the truest, but most overused, cliches is that “it is not the destination, but the journey”. It has been expressed myriad ways by writers much more skilled than I, and exhaustively explored by countless bloggers even more syrupy and sanctimonious. But, this morning, I had a conversation with a friend, and he closed with a brilliant observation that I feel bears sharing. BACKGROUND… this past week I have been eagerly following two remarkable races. October 4th, many of my friends were participating in “Hunter Gatherer Survival Run” in Rocksprings, Texas. If you’ve been following this blog at all, you know that I have participated in some truly brutal races. When I read THIS RACE REPORT, though, I realized that Hunter...

How my ego got my skull smashed in last month!

Every now and then life hands you (ok, me) a perfectly poetic lesson. Such was the case this past month. I was preparing to go to Hawaii for a few weeks of Spartan Race work, and received a phone call from Joe Distefano, the head of Spartan’s SGX Group Training certification program. He’d heard that he and I were going to be in Honolulu at the same time and asked if I would be attending the Saturday workout, at which we expected 300+ eager new Hawaiian  Spartan Racers to attend. “I sure will Joe! Looking forward to it!!” All packed and heading out the door the Thursday morning I was departing, I saw my three Death Race Finisher skulls sitting on the shelf in my foyer. “I had better bring these!” I thought to myself....
