This is My Story...

I came from humble beginnings facing many challenges.

I was raised in a tiny log cabin in the middle of nowhere Quebec, and when I was 7 my parents got divorced. My father struggled with mental illness and was unable to be a part of my life. My mother traveled for work as an airline stewardess to support us. Joy was hard to come by. 

Difficulty and loneliness was a normal state of being.

I was attracted to environments, people, and roles that made sure I stayed in that state. I met mentors and role models (that I desperately needed as a fatherless child), who were reactive men also pushing themselves daily to ensure they were numb and exhausted. So, I lived by what I saw. My normal was working 16 hours a day, 6 days a week, pushing my body to the limits, then making sure I avoided anything uncomfortable on days off.

Over 20 years, my life's work evolved, but
one role remain consistent:
being in a position to guide others.

As an entrepreneur for over a decade, I was responsible for over 140 employees, was consumed by spreadsheets, managed complicated partnerships, was chained to email, and dealt with tricky contract negotiations. I thought, if I get "X", I will be happy.

I started and sold multiple successful businesses, got to travelled the world, grew a wonderful family, and, yet, at the end of the day still felt empty. I had a wildly successful career, I was a local celebrity, and well regarded. On the outside looking in, it was easy to glorify. 

What no one saw was the monthly panic attack that would have me dry heaving in my car.

During that time I attended an talk about resilience and success. I approached the organizer to speak at the next event. Over the course of a month I wrote my speech, and was rehearsing it for the first time out loud in my car between meetings. As I read the cue cards I began to vividly recall early childhood memories and I couldn’t make it past the first event in my life without minimizing or justifying that it was normal. In that moment I could feel the confusion I experienced as young child. The fear, the loneliness, the overwhelm, all of the pain that I never acknowledged before came out in one punch.

The irony was, that I made it difficult and lonely for the people I cared most about.

My adult life was a reflection of what I knew to be normal since childhood. Something needed to change, none of it was sustainable. I was faced with a choice to continue to endure difficulty and loneliness, or start to make sense of my inner conflicts.

I dove in, applying that pusher attitude to bettering myself. I faced the part of me that was making the lives of others difficult. Appreciated the part of me that needed to work myself into the ground to feel safe. Showed compassion to the part of me that couldn't acknowledge the anger I was holding on to. Nourished for the the part of me that didn't know how to be joyful.

Many of us work so hard at repressing the pain from our inner conflicts to stay functional in this world.

As I unraveled the chaos of my younger years, I dedicated my studies to Internal Family Systems (IFS) and became a Certified Practitioner. I knew there was no chance I was alone in carrying hidden burdens while maintaining the facade that everything was O.K. So, I sold my other businesses and put my efforts into helping others lead themselves. 

I believe that all humans are an intricate mosaic of multiple parts. Imagine a living room where all different versions of yourself live. Each part of yourself representing a different desire, need, and role. It is natural to allow whatever part is most present at any given time to influence your daily decisions.

I work with you to help you access a deeper understanding of yourself by developing a relationship with every version of yourself. Using IFS along with transformative breathwork and meditative practices I help you find your place of confidence, within collaboration of all the parts us that are just trying to help us cope. You will get the tools to make decisions from a place of clarity, versus reacting from a place of survival.

Five Things
About Me

Want to know a bit about my interests and values?

1.




I love living in the Pacific Northwest with my wife, two boys, and a our bearded dragon named Spike. Family is everything to me.

2.



I use to be a celebrity chef,
owned restaurants, businesses, product lines and I deeply
understand the feeling of
isolation from being in a
leadership role.   

3.



When I am not working or
with my family you can
find me playing in the
mountains.   


5.










I find the practice of breathing connects us to ourselves on a fundamental level. Breathing is the first thing we do when we come into this life, and we neglect its powers in the chaos of everyday living.

4.



I am lit up buy guiding others to their fullest potential. I teach courses,
lead anger management groups,
and host in-person retreats
