It’s hard to label my work but I start off by saying I’m an intuitive healer/counselor.
You might also say just healer, or life counselor. Some say life or health coach. For some I’m a relationship counselor or coach. I help many people with physical ailments so for many I’m a medical intuitive. I’m also a metaphysical or spiritual counselor and healer. Look at some of the classes and you’ll see many about metaphysics. My radio shows on Energy Stew are often about consciousness and metaphysics as well as personal development.
I’ve lived in New York City for the last 50 years after being raised in Westchester County, NY and schooled at Tulane, Penn State and NYU. I live and work on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with my wife Deborah who has her own practice as a Life Design Strategist and Interfaith Minister who focuses on Spirited Career/Life Coaching for Women, Relationship Support for Singles and Couples, Unique Wedding Ceremonies & Life Passage Celebrations (see spiritedliving.com). We share one of those great, old and comfortable West Side apartments.
My life has been a journey with many turns. For much of it, I didn’t notice the one constant that seemed to entwine other interests; a desire to know how to help people reduce their confusions, inadequacy and pain.
This was always a factor in my roles as a young photographer (with a studio in the photo district for 12 years), an author (of the book “Running USA”), a film producer (of the movie “On the Edge” starring Bruce Dern), a marathon founder and director (NYC Marathon) and also Chief Coach of the West Side Soccer League (with 3000 kids). I also created and ran a manufacturing company (Kidselebration, Inc.) which I sold after 12 successive profitable years.
Although quite successful in these fields, I was more drawn to help clients and associates with their lifes’ limitations than the business at hand. Finally, the healing and counseling tide was too great to continue pursuing other interests.
Historically, my path began as I was consumed, as a teenager, to understand multi-dimensionality as a result of my father’s death. Where did he go and how would I ever see him again? I feel a lot better about those mysteries now and do expect to see him again. On a more physical plane, at the beginning of the running boom in the mid-seventies, I became an founding officer and director of the New York Road Runners Club and the New York City Marathon (until 1999). I’m featured in a full length documentary about the history of running in NYC called “Run For Your Life”. A great pride in my life was to help launch the Achilles Track Club for disabled athletes which now has chapters in more than 62 countries.
Having been a life-long runner, I then began coaching and training runners. At the same time, Gary Null, the host of the Natural Living Radio Show, asked me to be a regular guest and occasional host of his show. Together, we founded the Natural Living Club and helped thousands of people pursue healthier, happier lives over the next 30 years. During this time, I studied with many teachers who revealed mastery of the many mysteries of mind, body and soul.
Among them I count, Avery Ferentz, Annemarie Colbin, Ben Benjamin, Peter Urban, Dorothy Espiau, Del Pe, Choa Kok Sui, Martin Feldman, Kalu Rimpoche, Khempo Kathar Rimpoche and Ra Uru Hu. I’ve recently had the pleasure of studying Family Constellations with Roberta Maria Atti and Total Biology with a number of teachers from this incredible French program. There is never an end to enhancing our learning.
My practice covers many different aspects of people’s needs. I work intuitively to analyze the many energies that emanate, not only from bodies, but from the deeper part of the soul. This is where I find the master computer that reveals the inner patterns of imbalance one is challenged by. I also use many techniques to fine tune bodies for health and athletic performance and work with some of the top runners in the world. Most of my clients are not athletes.
My job is to help make people feel whole. This includes the dramas in one’s life (i.e. relationships, work situations, finance, health, etc.) and to see where the dysfunctional patterns began and to find the solutions to them. I love to bring people out of pain and I’m excited about the many tools I have to do it. This is why I teach. It’s great to have an arsenal and I want everyone to have one. Of course the strongest tool we have is our heart. To strengthen this strengthens all. I want my clients to have the tools to be powerful and maintain their health and happiness.
Sessions with me can focus on the many different life issues you may be concerned about. Many clients also ask me about others in their lives and I’m able to intuitively know about anyone you are interested in. This includes family and business associates. I’ve done a lot of work with executives about many aspects of their business life and often provide insight into prospective job applicants.
