My Message To You
My true love, and my life’s mission, is helping people find peace, wellness, and happiness in their lives. It’s been a long journey to where I am today, but the challenges I faced and the struggles I overcame have made me stronger, more resilient, and better able to truly understand the human psyche.
My initial interest in psychology sprang from a difficult upbringing. My parents divorced when I was only four years old, my mother then left, and my father was left raising me on his own. Despite his best efforts, he did not provide much emotional support, and as you can imagine, this affected me on a very deep level.
Later in life, as my educational career progressed, I began performing in-depth research in the field of psychology. Perhaps in an effort to slay my demons, my PhD dissertation was related to my bond with my own child. During my doctorate program, I developed a thorough understanding of the scientific method and a strong foundation in the practice of research. My plan at the time was to pursue a career in academia, but I transitioned once I encountered the interdisciplinary field of psychophysiology. It was in this area that I found my true calling.
I learned all aspects of biofeedback and developed a specialization in NIR infrared neurofeedback at the Biofeedback Institute of Los Angeles (BILA). I was truly fortunate to receive training by a special individual who would eventually become my mentor, Dr. Hershel Toomim – neuroscientist, innovator, and a true giant in the field of psychophysiology. Looking back, I feel that Dr. Toomin and BILA made me who I am today. They taught me just about everything I know, but more importantly, they provided a place to practice being human; I was ultimately able to up-level my emotional intelligence. Hershel gave me the reins, and if I would stumble and fall, he was always there helping me get back up.
Matrix is the culmination of a life’s work dedicated to wellness. While the business model that I developed isn’t particularly popular with my peers, I feel a strong need to provide an affordable solution that’s accessible to everyone. It’s simply the right thing to do.
I overcame many obstacles in my life, and am now a role model to so many, which creates a profound and deep sense of purpose and meaning to my life. I look forward to meeting you, working with you, and taking you on an extraordinary journey to cognitive and emotional fulfillment.
