He is founder and director of the Life Empowerment Center in Austin, Texas, where he sees clients in group and private sessions and offers trainings for his peers in the mental health world. Equally grounded in neuroscience and intuition, his personal brand of therapy is uniquely empathetic, and often transformative.
