Hello. I’m pleased your path led to this little story about the path that led me here too…
I grew up around Boston and landed in San Francisco in 2008 for a post-doc that immersed me in emerging research on coping with stress, at UCSF. By then, I’d put my graduate research on applying technology to psychology to good use by touring a live, wiki-based psychology show around the country. (Tap the “Today” link beneath “Live Events” further below for more detail about that project).
By revealing life from new perspectives, each new “Today” show connected me with people in an increasingly empowered and present way. These experiences further focused my attention on writing about psychology and creating content and technology to help people apply psychology in their own lives – always grounded in the insight that living in presence is the pathway to embracing the unique life we each are here to live.
I’ve learned that truth most clearly through the unmistakable emergence of shared presence during psychotherapy sessions over the last decade. My patients repeatedly demonstrate that no matter what’s going on in life this moment – good, bad, ugly or amazing – when you know how to connect to presence, you are never more than an instant from peace. That insight is as true for you as it is for me.
Come listen in presence anytime.
UPDATE: From 2016-18, I was a founding team member at Limbix VR in Palo Alto, then a leading virtual reality (VR) for psychology digital therapeutics company. I directed psychology and led content strategy and development at Limbix. You can read more about this in the featured media listed further below.
