My background as a transpersonal clinical psycho-therapist working with persons traumatized by catastrophic events and as a police manager working with employees involved in organization change and persons involved in criminal investigations has deepened my insight into the formation of limiting beliefs and the development of empowering beliefs as a person or group works through or processes a dark or transformational period in their life or organization and emerges with clarity, harmony, and commitment.
My purpose is to discuss how we can identify with principles and transform our lives and the lives with those in which we are in relationship. This is how we lead. We align with principles, anchor in their intensity, and act from a frame of reference that is inside/out.
I taught ethics, addiction, and research courses in the criminal justice and psychology departments for a large university for five years.
I taught classes on a variety of New Thought topics for eight years for two spiritual centers in southern California.
I have held meditation sessions and conducted workshops on a variety of topics, including Leadership, Principle-Centered Time Management, Mindfulness, Visioning, and Strategic Planning/Program Evaluation.
I hold a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from California Baptist University and a Master of Public Administration from California State University, San Bernardino.
In addition, I also received training from The Awareness Institute on Mindfulness Meditation, facilitated by practitioners of Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield.
I trained as a spiritual coach with Centers for Spiritual Living where I practiced for eight years.
I retired as a police lieutenant having served in several positions including research and development and investigations with an expertise in sexual assault, child abuse/child death investigations, strategic planning, and program evaluation.
I no longer practice psycho-therapy or teach. I live with my wife, Kim and our two Shih Tzus, Ella & Dean in Southern California, USA.
