About Brian

I am a beautiful wandering soul, who’s purpose to is to support others on their earthly journey. I have walked many paths of career, relationships and habitations. What I have come to realize over the decades of my life, is that what I excel at is holding space, listening to others stories, experiences and helping them navigate it.  I also love empowering people to find a healthier and easier way of living, reminding them of their greatness and helping them find freedom in their lives. 

I am in this field of coaching, teaching and bodywork, because it feeds me on a soul level. In coaching and teaching, watching the gleam in the eye of my clients when they “get it”. When that shift that happens, it is so magical! It fills every cell my body with joy, better than any other experience out there. Knowing that I helped shift their perspective and was a key in their transformation, is something I can’t express in words. With bodywork, it’s similar, watching people experience freedom and ease in their body that has been a stranger to them. To observe them reacquaint with that, is such a blessing to witness and hold space for. The word Humbling only scratches the surface.

I’ve been in the healing arts world now for 10 years. I have done a tremendous amount of personal growth/ self empowerment and leadership work as well as learning to listen to and heal my own mind, body and spirit. That journey will continue as long as I’m alive.

I have been on an extensive 10 year Conscious Self Study of: Personal Growth, Self Empowerment, Philosophical studies, Psychology, New Age Movement and ever growing practice of Spirituality, focusing in Eastern Philosophies as well as Native American Traditions. I have also been teaching a range of personal growth and self empowerment classes and workshops for 4 years.

I have participated and studied with the ManKind Project, which is a nonprofit training and educational organization with three decades of proven success hosting life-changing experiential personal development programs for men. I studied with Landmark Worldwide, an international personal and professional growth, training and development company with a range of offerings that are innovative, effective, and immediately relevant. These organizations are integral to my life and have grown and changed me to be the person I am now.

In the realm of Bodywork, I am trained in several modalities including Myofascial Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy and specially trained to work with TMJD issues. In addition, I am trained in CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release through the Upledger Institute.   As well as energy modalities such as Polarity Therapy, Reiki, Quantum Touch and Shamanic practices.

I am a 2011 graduate of the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy (AAIMT) in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I am certified in Myofascial Therapy and Neuromuscular Therapy through AAIMT.  I am a member of The Association of Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP), and licensed to practice massage in the State of Michigan and Colorado. I have passed the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). I also have been a member of the Mankind Project since October 2014 and Landmark Worldwide since 2018.
