My guiding vision is to understand how spiritual practices, like mindfulness, meditation, and visioning lead to the fuller integration of science and spirituality in the evolution of humanity in co-creating a peaceful fulfilling existence.
I am certified as a Practitioner (R.Sc.P.) or Spiritual Coach through Centers for Spiritual Living, an international organization with about 400 spiritual centers located across the United States and in 30 countries around the globe.
I hold a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from California Baptist University and a Master of Public Administration from California State University, San Bernardino.
I also trained as a professional coach (C.P.C.) through The Fowler Wainwright International Institute of Professional Coaching. The founders of that institute are Berry Fowler, founder and former chairman of Sylvan Learning Centers, and Barbara Wainwright, former Worldwide President of Certified Coaches Federation. They use NLP techniques. I am certified as a Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) through the American Union of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (AUNLP).
In addition, I also received training from The Awareness Institute on Mindfulness Meditation, facilitated by practitioners of Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield.
I retired as a police lieutenant having served in the capacity of investigations commander, watch commander and in research and development with an expertise in child abuse/death investigations, strategic planning, and program evaluation.
