Testimonials

Sean is an incredibly skilled therapist. I have been working with him for almost a year and I am amazed at the progress I have made in this short time. He is insightful, compassionate and deeply present. One of the things I most appreciate about Sean is his ability to create a safe and trusting environment. This is so important to me because I am a survivor of child sexual abuse and my healing process can be really hard at times, and often scary.

I also appreciate Sean’s therapeutic approach. He uses mindfulness and cognitive behavioral techniques very effectively and the methods I learn in therapy can be used in my everyday life. Being able to do work on my own helps me be more actively engaged in my healing and have more agency in the process. This is really empowering and healing all by itself. 

Because of my work with Sean, I now feel more embodied in my life and I have more confidence in my ability to respond to overwhelming feelings. I am also much more open and interested in facing my fears and exploring my triggers. Incredibly, my anxiety and depression are much, much better and I even feel happy! I honestly never thought all of this was possible. Sean is a really amazing therapist— I would have liked to use “magical” and “super hero” and “funniest therapist ever” to describe him in this testimonial, but I wasn’t sure where to fit them in. I can’t thank Sean enough for his support and guidance and I couldn’t recommend him more highly.

I have noticed a huge difference in how I approach life, my attitude, my demeanor and how I handle stress these days. I have gotten back to my happy go lucky self, seem much happier and getting along much better with my wife. I learned a lot from your teachings and have incorporated and been practicing what I took from your workshop. Much happier and have the patience I had several years ago again. Not sweating the small stuff anymore and have a more big picture approach to life. I feel like I can see the forest for the trees again.

The mindfulness and meditation practices that you taught have been highly beneficial and I thank you immensely for what you taught me. The tracing the wire concept to what is causing one’s anger, depression and anxiety has been very beneficial as well. I have also made a conscious effort to practice mindfulness on a daily basis. I could go on forever about the benefits I gained from your workshop Sean but I would have to write a book. I don’t feel like I am turning into a grumpy and cantankerous old man anymore.

I had to share this. On the 14th of this month my wife and I were involved in a serious accident. Nobody was hurt bad, I totaled my 2017 Silverado. A lady driving at night in the rain without headlights hit us. I can truly say what you taught me definitely had an impact on how I processed and handled this situation. I remained unbelievably calm and handled it in a very healthy and positive manner. I have to attribute that to your teachings and The Temple. Thanks again for what you taught Bradley and I Sean.

Keep doing what you’re doing brother. Take care!!!

Sean is a truly amazing psychotherapist and integration consultant. I booked in to speak to Sean following having an episode of psychosis triggered by Ayahuasca. I was in a very scared and weak place. The instant I spoke to Sean I felt a sense of relief. I trusted his wisdom and his skills and knew he would help me. We had four sessions together and the transformation I have felt is incredible. Every time we spoke, he managed to see beyond my small worries and complaints and get to the source of my problems. He led me on some guided meditations which gave me some surprising breakthroughs. Sean is a natural and gifted intuitive healer with a pragmatic and scientific approach. He is knowledgeable, down to earth and a warm and friendly person. Thank you so much for your help Sean!

I had several meetings with Sean both prior to and after working with the Ayahuasca medicine at the Temple of the Way of Light. He had incredible compassion and empathy in regards to my questions, experiences and emotions. Sean was able to relate, as well as, communicate mindfully to my experiences and connect the art of psychotherapy healing to aid me in understanding the personal integration techniques. Interestingly Seans’ ‘Psychology of Healing’ courses addressed personal tribulations that I had originally thought would be experienced with the medicine. The Temple has an incredible team and Sean is an essential example of the support offered. I would greatly recommend to have at least a session with Sean before or after your retreat.

I really enjoyed working with Sean. I learned many different healing tools from him that I incorporated into my work with plant medicine. Sean offers a very friendly, warm, calm, open and humble yet confident presence. He truly listens to you and is very present. I am looking forward to continuing to work with Sean!
