Welcome to Your Thriving Life!

Welcome to Your Thriving Life!


Because that’s the meaning and purpose of Life:



Without domination, exploitation, or dehumanization of others.



Life is not about pursuing happiness.

It’s about learning how to BE happy. 


The kind of happiness that arises naturally and effortlessly from within us,
when our most genuine life-needs and dreams are nourished and fulfilled …
without struggle.


If you want to be HAPPY, learn how to THRIVE.


We all know it’s not money, property, or status that “buys” happiness. Even if we’re lucky enough to chase down “enough” of that kind of wealth, none of it inherently, directly creates happiness.  (It definitely creates some ease and some security … while we have it.)
The trouble is, far too many of us work far too hard and despite all our pursuing, we still haven’t “caught” happiness … because we don’t know how to THRIVE.
Maybe like me, you were taught you had to work hard to make enough money to be able to buy the right stuff … so that you could be important and valuable and secure, and then you would be happy.

How’s that been workin’ for you?
Do you sleep well?  Do you wake up energized and joyful, excited about your day?  Is your body healthy, vibrant, and strong?  Do you love all your by-choice relationships (friends and partner)?  Are you at minimum enjoying healthy boundaries and ease in your “required” relationships (boss, coworkers, neighbors, family), if not delighting in many of these as well?
Do you have enough time to rest and play? Do you feel satisfied and fulfilled at the end of your day?
That is, are you truly, genuinely happy? 
The kind of happy that depends far more on WHO YOU ARE BEING, WHO YOU ARE WITH, and WHAT YOU’RE CREATING THAT YOU LOVE than what’s happening around you. 
The kind of happy that doesn’t require tons of money you constantly have to struggle to earn, or worry about losing?
If it seems to you that experiencing ALL of these is “asking for too much” … that is grim evidence that you’ve been taught to believe survival and the PURSUIT of happiness is the most you can hope for.
And that is just dead wrong.


It’s your birthright to THRIVE.

It’s your nature to enjoy positive, nourishing,
trustworthy relationships, physical health and vitality,
abundant rest and play, and deep satisfaction at the end of your day.



If you want to move beyond surviving and pursuing happiness, and  finally claim your thriving birthright …

you’ve come to the right place.



“I have been in therapy … for years. You have helped me heal more today
than I have yet. Thank you so much!” -G.H., Portland, OR



The Thriving Life Approach integrates key elements from Nonviolent Communication (NVC), Relational Neuroscience, and Attachment Theory with the “real life, real human”-based principles, distinctions, and practices that I’ve discovered over more than 45 years of research and testing.

Research and testing I did because my own life and happiness depended on it.


The result?


A practical, do-able pathway to THRIVING that:

How our "Broken Toes" Sabotage our Relationships
Discover the Hidden “Broken Toes” that Sabotage Our Relationships!
  • transforms our relationship with our own and others’ pain, fear, anger, and other “negative” emotions … and creates enormous clarity, safety, freedom, belonging, and joy
  • creates a deeply safe, accepting, compassionate environment that leaves us free to be everything we are — our real selves — with others
  • clarifies what truly contributes to our thriving (and in turn creates real happiness), so that we can focus our efforts on what actually works to make our life more wonderful
  • reveals what’s really causing our conflicts with other people, and shows us how to dissolve these misunderstandings so we can experience the natural satisfaction, inspiration, communion, and joy that our relationships are meant to give us


When we hold HONORABLE THRIVING (thriving without harming others) as the fundamental purpose and goal of all we do — from our personal relationships to our economics, politics, education, health care, business, and all other endeavors — we become free to create the abundantly joyful, healthy, wonderful THRIVING LIFE that’s our birthright.  (And discover perhaps the only pathway that can truly heal our hurting world.)


You were born to THRIVE.
