About The Teacher

Mark is an intense and energetic person whose incredible love for people has allowed him and afforded him the incredible privilege of coaching hundreds of people from all nationalities, age groups, and walks of life. He’s been able to help couples find that spark again and reignite their passion. He’s been able to successfully cure lifelong and crippling phobias in a matter of hours. From working with individuals suffering through substance abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, or emotional abuse, he always sees the possibility for healing and change. He has also worked with suicidal individuals who are quite literally at the end of their rope and shifted them into people who have such a profound love and appreciation of life. He strives for mastery in every aspect of his life and his mission is to help everyone he works with tap into what he calls their “infinite potential.” He has spent the last 13 years obsessed with getting people healthy and balanced in addition to the last 5 years helping people demolish through their fears and break through any obstacles. But his life’s mission and purpose wasn’t always this clear. In 2003 he was depressed, isolated, and morbidly obese but he decided to throw himself into the world of nutrition and of personal development where he read every single book and article written and by 2006 he found himself happy, surrounded by friends, and in great shape. He was able to heal himself and was able to radically change who he was. He found out how to literally reprogram his DNA. But more importantly, he was now obsessed with healing others.

This newfound obsession pushed Mark into holistic and naturopathic medicinal approaches and also inspired him to pursue a degree in nutrition. But as a believer in health only being physical in nature, he also took it upon himself to explore health from an energetic perspective, becoming both a reiki healer and a theta frequency healer. This inspired him to explore health from an emotional perspective and he threw himself into the world of more scientific schools of healing such as Ericksonian therapy, Gestalt therapy, and traditional psychology and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Mark’s life’s motto is simple. End suffering. Fortunately his intense love of people and insatiable hunger allows him to do just that. He has the ability refocus people and create a safe space where they can reassess who they are and where they can challenge old beliefs that don’t serve their higher self. A space where they not only think and feel, but where they know that absolutely anything is possible because everything they need for their lives to be exactly the way they want is inside of them right now. As a human being and as a coach he always sees the best in people. But more importantly, he has the ability to see everyone not for who they are, but for who they have the capacity to be.

“A conversation with Mark is a journey of its own. He has an insightful and comforting way of speaking that allows you to explore and understand your own thoughts in ways you didn’t even know you could. He’s also one of the most kind and unique souls I’ve ever had the pleasure to encounter. I’m thankful for his friendship and his help, I’ve learned so much about myself and the power of my thoughts and actions thanks to him. As a coach, as a friend and as a human being, he is simply amazing and I urge you to embark on this journey with him.” – Stefany Guzman

“I met Mark through shared college classes and, after hearing about what he does, I asked him to help me work on my wide range of issues, ranging from my poor physical health to depression. Thanks to Mark’s help, not only am I living a more physically fit lifestyle after having lost 50 lbs., but I’ve become aware of the many ways I hinder my own success and limit myself, and am well on my way to living a much more positive life. Just recently, for instance, I was left abruptly unemployed just after signing a one-year lease and moving into my new apartment. Before meeting Mark I would’ve wallowed in self-pity and ended up promptly losing that new home. Thanks to the guidance Mark has provided me, though, I quickly got back in the saddle and now have three great job offers to choose from with better pay, and an issue which only a few years ago would’ve seemed like an insurmountable obstacle to me instead appears to me what it really is; just a small hiccup on my road to success. And that change in perception and the way I view things I attribute in large part to Mark’s coaching and guidance.”– Rene Ferrer
