Science, Not “Self-Help”
Instead of hollow “self-help” strategies that never work, you’ll get proven advice based on sound psychology and neuroscience. To top it off, the methods I use to coach you will be backed by research, too.
Most importantly, instead of banging your head against a wall, alone, you’ll break through, together.
The Journey I’ll Walk You Through
1. Clearly define what you want. What’s your “Why?” Your Vision? What attributes or skills do you want to develop in yourself to make your Vision a reality?
2. Make a plan. You’ll get expert help to prioritize and focus your efforts. Within your brain’s Psychology, Physiology, and Technique, we’ll identify where you need the most growth. Then we’ll set goals, change habits, and take scientifically-proven steps to create the change you want.
3. Start building the life you want. Expert coaching will give you the knowledge, skills, and habits you need to successfully implement your plan. In your sessions, you’ll get answers, training, demos, tips, instant feedback, emotional support, help with overcoming challenges, and more.
4. Break through walls and keep progressing. Regular contact in between sessions will add to your accountability, support, and rate of change. When things get hard (they always do), I’ll keep holding you up and pushing you forward.
5. Become self-empowered. As you progress, I’ll spend less and less time demonstrating and instructing, and more and more time encouraging you to prioritize, set goals, plan, and problem-solve on your own, so you can walk away confident in your own brain and in your own ability to succeed!

Unlike many so-called “self-help gurus,” I don’t use faulty, impersonalized clichés. If something really worked for everyone, everyone would already be doing it! Some “brain hacks” can be helpful for some people some of the time, but usually only in the short term or only if you make a habit of applying them consistently, which is difficult for most people.
That’s why I focus on finding effective, long-term solutions that are tailored to your individual needs. In some cases, these are fast-acting, simple tips that I’ll help you make into a habit. But I’ll also help you uncover your deeper needs, so you can make more gradual but long-lasting changes that will benefit you for the rest of your life.
Whatever is convenient and optimal for you. I’ll make recommendations based on your needs, but it’s ultimately your choice.
One session per week is standard. That’s frequent enough to maintain your momentum, but with enough time in between that you can work on the things we cover. But some people prefer twice a week, and some prefer only once every two weeks.
Sessions are usually 30 or 45 minutes. 15 minutes is also possible if you just need a quick accountability check-in or have brief questions.
It depends on your goals, personal strengths, and challenges.
Just 3 hours per week is enough to make massive progress. If that sounds like a lot, don’t worry – even tiny changes in behavior can bring huge changes in results. Right now, you’re probably spending barely any time on the things you already know you “should” be doing, and you’re spending zero time on the proven strategies that you don’t yet know about, so even 30 minutes per week could substantially change your trajectory.
Ultimately, of course, the more you put in the more you get out.
During sessions: as your coach, I’ll use my experience with dozens of clients like you to assess what we should focus on and do at every given moment to use your time most effectively.
We’ll usually do a variety of in-depth trainings, adapted to your current needs. These may include helping you better define your vision and goals, mindset work, setting clear goals and plans, skill assessments, demonstrating techniques, giving you real-time feedback as you practice, and science-based problem-solving.
But we can also just talk, so you can get emotional support and encouragement.
Of course, most sessions will also include accountability check-ins. We’ll celebrate your recent successes and troubleshoot your recent challenges. If you didn’t hit a goal, what went wrong? What is the real, deeper problem that you might not be aware of? We’ll work together to brainstorm solutions and make better goals and plans.
Between sessions: we’ll keep in touch frequently so you get accountability, guidance, feedback, encouragement, and a chance to ask questions almost every day. We’ll also track your progress together (for example, with your own well-tested Trello board). As you complete Action Items, I can keep assigning new ones so that you can make maximum progress even in between sessions.
In short: in-person sessions are the best way to make progress but I’ll make sure you can make great progress on your own, too.
No, I am a scientist, not a doctor. As a brain expert, I might give suggestions related to how to optimize brain function, but these are only suggestions. I cannot and do not give medical advice.
Unfortunately, I can’t, because I do not provide medical services. But you may be able to get your employer to cover the cost, or deduct it as a business expense if you’re self-employed.
I’m happy to extend discounts to those in need of them, especially students. So let’s meet in a free consultation and come up with a coaching arrangement that works for you.
