Announcement icon We do all sessions via phone or video-conferencing - your choice.
I assist clients dealing with addiction and the related co-occurring issues (anxiety, depression, anger, ADHD/ADD, stress, bipolar, schizo-affective, schizophrenic, etc.). All of my clients has experienced some type of trauma, PTSD, childhood emotional neglect, intergenerational family issues, spiritual emergency / psychosis, etc., and addiction has been the result. Clients who have been impacted are in my estimation actually highly sensitive people and highly spiritual people. I now offer an 11-Session Emotional Integration Training program that teaches you to manage your emotions in a skillful way putting the tools in your hands.
The substance (or addiction) is never the problem, it's a symptom of the problem. The cause is ALWAYS a Core Issue. We'll explore your story, find out what happened, and teach you how to re-imagine your life in this new context focused on your strengths using a Collaborative Conversational Method. Our Emotional Integration Training Course is also available.
I will teach you Practical Applications of Spiritual Care and Science. You will understand what is happening at a neuro-biological level and learn my Cognitive-Emotional Understanding approach to integrate your experiences at an emotional level. Changing thinking is not enough, the underlying emotion/belief has to change FIRST.

Dean Alan Sims's Groups

Access Breathwork

Take your personal and spiritual growth to the next level. Come and EXPERIENCE for yourself how a musical journey of specially choreographed psy-trance, trance, techno, chill-trance, and ambient music can facilitate access to non-ordinary or altered states of consciousness, to the spiritual realm, to emotions and emotional processing & release. TYPICAL experiences include: out-of-body, astral, psychedelic, expanded self-awareness, re-birthing, primal states of being; connection with inner child, spiritual guidance, higher planes of consciousness and higher self. Ultimately Access Breathwork is about connection with your Self and the Universe and is an Integrative Healing EXPERIENCE.
