I have taken my clinical training combined it with decades of experience and tested and tried my theories by accomplishing what many people would deem impossible feats of endurance. My approaches are more than just “head knowledge.” They work for real people in real life. I am convinced that I am not anyone special. If a practice/principle works for me, it will probably work even better for you.
Dean has been a licensed therapist and wellness coach for over 30 years. Astonishingly, in that time he has conducted over fifty thousand face-to-face, one-hour sessions.
Besides being an author, and speaker, Dean is also a cancer survivor, widower and world record-setting extreme distance swimmer. He is the first person to swim the entire 187-mile of the Willamette River, (which he did as an active cancer patient) in 2014, and Ireland’s longest river, the River Shannon (180 miles), in 2017. These were done to prove his theories of mental conditioning, wellness, and recovery as well as to raise money for cancer research.
