Real People. Real Issues.
After thirty years as a psychotherapist, entrepreneur and business consultant, Rick has realized that many of the issues that impact work performance aren’t related to work at all- Depression, anxiety, taking care of aging parents, chemical dependency, breast cancer, raising children, conflict, actually, everything that happens outside of work, can have a huge impact on how you feel and perform at work.
Our simple mission is to “help a lot of people.” On Natural Tendencies we tackle the tough stuff with real people, and provide them with a place to process, learn and grow. We also provide practices and support materials that can help you overcome, or at least better manage, whatever is holding you back.
Join Rick as he guides people through issues we all face, and hopefully learn something that brings more joy and productivity into your home and work life.
The Human Chameleon
In our inaugural episode of Natural Tendencies, Rick talks to a successful VP who he refers to as The Human Chameleon about dealing with anxiety, growing up with psychiatrists after a divorce and sacrificing your own needs for others.
In Episode 2 of Natural Tendencies, Rick leads a verbal acupuncture session where he talks to one of his closest friends about having the rug pulled out from under his life after his parent’s divorce and early childhood losses, the insecurity and loneliness that resulted from that, and how he resorted to comedy as a means to make connections.
Unraveling the Human Doing
In Episode 3 of Natural Tendencies, Rick talks with our senior consultant, Chu Shin, about his severe childhood trauma and how it has informed his need to prove himself and always do more.
Chucking Kale at Your Husband
In Episode 4 of Natural Tendencies, Rick talks to a passionate creative who struggles with dealing with the “spongey” stuff that occupies her mind and the dissatisfaction inherent in being creative…sometimes manifesting into chucking kale at her husband. (Featuring a guest appearance by an epic thunderstorm… )
In Episode 5 of Natural Tendencies, Rick speaks with Yogi and Entrepreneur, Kali Necrason about the importance of names and how their spiritual significance has informed her perception of herself. She talks about how she is constantly combatting her innate and intense forward energy and aggression because she sees it as the antithesis of her core spiritual self.
