Meet Chris

Welcome! As a spiritual-psychotherapist you might guess I’m extremely passionate about personal development, and driven by a belief that anything is possible with the right attitude. I also believe our world is pretty screwed up, which is exactly why my music exists — to share spiritually-informed stories, metaphors, mantras, and psychological principles, through the medium of music.

If you are passionate about personal growth, consciousness, healing, spirituality or empowerment, have a growth-mindset, are looking for a breakthrough, or want to live the fullness of who you really are, you’ve come to the right place.:)

Here you can listen to full-song previews of any of our songs, schedule a initial free-coaching consultation with me. (coming soon) or sign up for my free monthly newsletter and receive one of my favorite songs as a free MP3 download as a welcome gift. If you would like to learn how you can help, please click here.

On a personal note, for the longest time, (decades actually,) I was plagued by the belief that ‘writing a song’ and ‘producing an album’ were absolutely impossible. Not for other people with talent, but for me. Looking back, I’m now filled with gratitude for having had the privilege of writing, producing and performing music with such an amazing group of producers, engineers, musicians, including my incredible co-writer GregBarnhill. 

But this didn’t happen by luck or accident. It happened because I sought out amazing mentors, including select friends and family members, who in turn showed up with the insight, wisdom, love, and support I needed to find the courage to go on my hero’s journey. 

And that’s my hope for you. That no matter who you are, or where you are on your life’s journey, that you seek-out the help you need to overcome your struggle or take your life to the next level. (Even Olympic athletes have coaches right?) The help IS there, but it’s up to you to reach out and find it. Whether that be with me or someone else, making that investment in yourself could make all the difference.

My therapeutic / coaching style is ‘real’ and based principles and extensive study of Spiritual and Positive Psychology. At my core I believe, no matter their circumstance,  no one is broken, and that oftentimes, within a person’s deepest wound lies their greatest strength and gift to share with the world.

I’ve been passionate about personal development for the past thirty years, attended a ton of seminars, training programs, and workshops, completed a Masters in Spiritual Psychology, studied with Tony Robbins, represented many of the most highly regarded personal development experts in the world, and struggled a ton along the way.

My personal journey has entailed releasing attachment to the end result and what others think, and focusing on doing my best. I keep the train moving forward by breaking challenges into the smallest possible steps, and try to always remember, a joyful journey is always created from within. It arises from my perspective, by holding a space of gratitude for both the wins and the losses, and finding a way to pat myself on the back for showing up in the arena.

Thanks for visiting. I sincerely appreciate it, and please don’t be a stranger!
Anything is possible one small step at a time. Yes, you can.

Best wishes,
