I'm the author of Rewiring the Soul: Finding the Possible Self, which is now available in print and e-book format. My new book The Tao of Spiritual Partnership will be available late summer 2012.
My work is in private practice as an integral psychotherapist and life coach, clinical hypnotherapist, relationship coach, dream worker, EFT practitioner, and professional speaker.
From here in southern Spain, I broadcast a live weekly radio show every Wednesday from 2003 - 2010, also available on the Internet or as archived audio files on my website.
I work with clients locally in person and internationally via phone or SKYPE (in English, Spanish, and German) to move them towards greater personal, professional, and relationship success with an integral and human potential raising approach to life.
In 2003 I participated in a symposium on human development at Harvard University in Boston and was galvanized in so many ways due to what the key note speaker there was discussing from an empirical point of view - something that the metaphysical world had already known for so long: everything we think, feel, say and do has an effect on our cells and our very DNA. I thought to myself then that we finally had something in hand for all those who used to reject so much simply because there had been no empirical proof.
I received my Ph.D. in Psychology from Florida International University (FIU) in Miami, Florida, where I also lectured for four years on a diversity of subjects in the psychology department. I'm also certified as a clinical hypnotherapist and have worked with abused children for the Guardian ad Litem program with the State of Florida, as well as with at risk adolescents (substance abuse, anger management, children of alcoholics, abused children, alternative life styles, dysfunctional families, etc.) through the Changing Lives Program with FIU. I have also worked extensively with terminal AIDS and cancer patients in hospice care in Mexico, USA, and Spain, and have been effective in bereavement counseling. Here in Marbella I also taught Intro Psych to undergrads at CIE (American University).
In my private practice in Marbella I work with an international clientele focusing on the resolution of many problems related to the stresses of modern life in careers, relationships, sexuality, parents, children, health, goals, acculturation, and life in general. More than anything else, I focus with my clients on sharing with them what I consider most important of all: assuming absolute and total responsibility for the self.
For the past 34 years I've studied a variety of clinical therapies and alternative healing modalities, including advanced psychoenergetic techniques, and I always attempt to maintain my toolbox well stocked with up-to-date information and techniques. I also studied Liberal Arts at the University of Waterloo in Canada, and Sociology & Political Science at the Complutense University in Madrid. Born in Germany, raised in Canada and Switzerland, I also lived extensively in Mexico, Spain and the USA. I have three wonderful sons that make me so proud that I can hardly contain myself...
Long interested in Jungian analytic psychology, integral psychology, and dream interpretation, I studied these together with mythology, compared religions, symbolism and related fields since 1969. In my private practice in Mexico, my clinical work in the USA, and my practice here in Marbella, both with individuals and groups, in my work with adults, adolescents and children, I strongly emphasizes the holistic or integral (physical, psychoemotional, and spiritual) human being.
I offer workshops in the personal development field. My current “The Conscious Journey Within” Workshop (a series of 12) is offered locally (see monthly newsletter for updates) and elsewhere by request.
