"If clients come prepared to take action, they can expect positive results! The wealth of experience that thirty years of clinical work and fifty-thousand face-to-face hours brings with it are solid answers that work for real people in real time. Clients can also expect the sort of love and compassion from me that comes from firsthand experience of knowing what it's like to have tragedy, trauma and life-threatening illness turn your life upside-down."

HI! GREAT TO MEET YOU.

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.

BIO

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.
