Born to a fifteen-year-old mother in abject poverty Lair saw few examples of connective, loving functional relationships. As a young man he began recapitulating those same behaviors of disfunction in his own life. Committed to change Lair began a lifelong journey of self-exploration and healing, which has culminated in his work as a therapist. Less than an “expert” he considers himself a fellow practitioner of the principles he offers, trying to do it little better tomorrow than he did it today
Mindfulness is the foundation of Lair’s work as a therapist and a coach. It is a tool that brings clarity to your path and connects you to yourself and what it is you do. Mindfulness provides a way for us to truly know ourselves, what motivates our choices and what blocks us from attaining our goals. In addition, Lair possesses an in depth understanding of the universal laws of attraction. Combining these two powerful techniques, Lair has helped hundreds of clients thrive and discover the abundance and prosperity in their work.
In a safe and nurturing environment, clients are able to explore their present difficulties with a look to how their past may be influencing their struggles. Through this process, clients are able to transform their negative inner narratives, manage their anger, their stress and their depression; allowing them to find more balance and peace.
