There are only two ways to influence human behavior: you can manipulate it or you can inspire it. People don't [care] what you do, they [care] why you do it. And what you do simply proves what you believe. 

~Simon Sinek


We must make the choices that enable us to fulfill the deepest capacities of our real selves. 

~Thomas Merton

Why do I practice

Insight Medicine...?

My personal mission is to realize and release our unique energy so that it's easier for us to feel good.  

That is my "WHY", and the heart of Insight Medicine; to make this world better by helping individuals to heal, make sense of their experience, outfit them for what lies ahead, and inspire them to wake up to feeling good, from the inside-out. Said much better by Howard Thurman, civil rights leader and mentor to Martin Luther King Jr: 

"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

Insight Medicine excites me because by it I believe we come closer to our basic need of finding fulfillment in life. When we are assured enough safety, connection, meaning, and empowerment we are laying the groundwork for developing this holistic relief, or health. 


Our particular mix of genes and life experiences, strengths and weaknesses, the good and bad in our story, all uniquely situate each of us in the greater context of our lives to influence and inspire the lives of others.  


Balance and resiliency and authority naturally flow from an adaptable, mature, whole person who feels the ability to take meaningful action in his or her life. And through Insight I hope that for us both.
