With graduate degrees in both Religious Studies and Social Work, Alan has spent over 20 years immersed in the study of various theories of human development.  His work takes place at the nexus between psychology and spirituality - with a special interest in the role religion and contemplative practice can play in recovery from PTSD and moral injury, as well as the facilitation of post-traumatic growth. 


Alan's courses, seminars and workshops are suffused with a deep appreciation for the world's wisdom traditions; joyfully drawing upon a host of stories, anecdotes and teachings to illustrate shared themes of growth and transformation.  He lives in Rochester, Michigan.
