About Me

Hello. I appreciate you taking the time to get to know more about me.
I have been on planet earth for a long time. I so appreciate having the opportunity to see the consciousness of mankind expand in many ways. And in many ways, it has stayed the same. I would like to think that my life experience has allowed me to experience a range of emotions, trials and tribulations that contributes to my ability to listen and empathize with your situation.
The primary trait I bring to the table is that of the wounded healer. I grew up in an abusive atmosphere, and spent most of my life trying to "figure it out".
I have experienced many different types of therapy, many of them cathartic and body oriented. I have always found a sense of home in my body, and i try to convey the power of Mother Earth and our bodies to bring solace and healing to your situation.
The mind is not always the best place to look for solutions, especially for body issues and trauma. Research has proven this to be the case.
I have lived in many places, travelled the world, and i love the West Coast.
I grew up in New York City. I was a teacher, a dog trainer, a professional dancer, and I performed off off Broadway doing Primal Theatre.
I performed for many years doing Playback Theater, a wonderful form where we played back audience member's stories for them.
I have been an entrepreneur and business owner for decades, providing tools and information to help people live a happy, healthy, long life. I have coached and worked with many business owners and family businesses.
I am confident that i can provide you with a compassionate ear, be a witness to your areas of concern, and help move you towards your goals and aspirations.

John brings an experienced perspective to our sessions. He is encouraging and offers useful suggestions for action. I feel like he understands, so it's easy to talk to him.
