Keith has two decades of combined experience as a licensed professional counselor in private practice, business administration and teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level. He is the Co-Founder of the Integrative Psychiatry Center and Integrative Psychiatry Institute along with Will Van Derveer, MD. He also created the Higher Practice Podcast, an educational resource for mental health professionals.
His career path started over twenty years ago with an incredibly difficult personal crisis. During his sophomore year of college, he was consumed by agitation, insomnia, chronic illness, mental chaos, and relationship problems. He was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder as well as a host of other issues. At first, he thought this was a life-long sentence, but over time realized that instead, this was the impetus that led him on a personal, spiritual and professional quest to conquer his own challenges and help others to do the same.
During his early twenties, he became immersed in the study of yoga and fascinated with the intricate link between the body and mind which eventually led him to study Transpersonal Counseling at Naropa University.
In his one-on-one work, he focuses on coaching people with their mental health, relationship issues and business ventures. He typically works with entrepreneurs, business leaders and mission-oriented individuals. He believes knowing one’s purpose and the ability to act on it is the fastest path to wellness and fulfillment. As a coach and business owner, he’s determined to bring revolutionary tools to people around the world in order to help them reach their potential.
