About Mark

I create products and services to help people improve and maintain great mental health and fitness.
Mental health is a skill you practice.

I have mental health (just like everybody else). But it took me a long time to realize that and by the time I did, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, depression, and a bunch of related mental illnesses had consumed my life. But it didn’t have to be that way. I could have saved enormous amounts of pain, energy, and money, if I’d taken a more proactive, preventive approach to mental health much earlier in life. Thanks to behavioral therapy supported by a lifestyle focused on being mentally and physically fit, I’ve been free from OCD for over five years. My focus now is on making great mental health more accessible and helping others succeed with recovery. I do that in several ways, which I'll explain below.


I write ebooks like The Acceptance Field Guide, which you can download here I also write traditional books made with real paper. My first will be in stores in 2017. I’m represented by Hattie Grunewald at the Blake Friedmann Agency.


To translate evidence-based therapy concepts and research into a more easily accessible and applicable format, I make animated and live videos. Viewers in 129 countries watch a combined total of roughly 100,000 minutes of my YouTube videos every month.


I work with people from around the world one-on-one and through online video courses to help support them through the process of recovery. To learn more about my video courses, visit the BrainSchool and to learn more about one-on-one coaching, send me an email.
