You want motivation, balance, and an awesome life for yourself and others. We are all curious about the optimal functioning of the brain, mind, body, behaviors, and relationships but the idea of learning about science is often overwhelming or hard to apply to everyday life. My passion and expertise is to make science NOT overwhelming and to APPLY it to our everyday lives!
How do I do this?
Blending smart science with practical tools for optimal living is how I communicate.
I love to spread the word of balance through powerful and engaging speaking events.
Some of my current favorite topics are self-motivation, millennials, generation Z kids,
21st century skills, parenting, mental health, and addictions.
Providing expert content to TV, radio, and online media keeps me on my toes! I frequently discuss issues of health, wellness, or education in the media. See my media here.
My quick videos and webinars will help you find balance in your everyday life
In over 15 years of clinical practice as a medical doctor, I have helped thousands of
