After I earned my Ph.D. in Experimental Immunopathology and serving in the U.S. Navy as a Medical Service Corps Officer during the Vietnam Conflict, I immersed myself in the practice of mindfulness-based healing, integrating mind, body, and spirit through yoga, meditation, and life coaching for over 30 years.

My reason for that was to commit myself to work with those whose lives are fraught with recurrent memories and flashbacks of traumatic emotional or physical events experienced or witnessed in the past by providing them with evidence-based interventions they would be able to use for the rest of their lives. That is, those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) and Complex-Post Traumatic Stress Disorders, as defined in the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DMS), May 2013.

To that end, I became a Certified Mindfulness Intervention Coach and Consultant, a Life Coach and Yoga Instructor.  I have also received training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention, and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. Recently I trained in Trauma-Healing yoga for the management of emotional trauma from David Emerson.

Based in the Palm Springs area of California, I have traveled throughout the US and abroad, giving presentations, and facilitating retreats.

My acclaimed book, Chaos & Bliss is available on and my latest books, Anguish and Joy and Mindfulness for the Common Man are scheduled for release in December 2018.
