  1. Master a scientifically proven technique to flip the switch and calm your nerves for optimal performance in the most “stressful” situations.
  2. Listen to the language your body is speaking so you can diagnose yourself faster and more accurately than any doctor.
  3. Control your breath to help calm your brain, relax your body and maintain higher levels of focus.


"I enjoyed the teaching style of the speaker. He was very knowledgeable on the subject. What I really liked was the real-life information we need as clinicians to diagnose and treat this effectively. Overall, one of the best webinars I’ve participated in. Thank you so much! You put a lot of work into this!"

David Mykel, MA

David mission is to create training programs that combine cutting edge psychology and neuroscience with action-sport inspired fitness to help men and women rewire their Brain, their Body, and their Breath to work for them and not against them by increasing their mental and physical toughness.

In these Experiences, David helps you rewire your brain in a way that's fun, safe and in less time than other programs out there. He uses the latest research in Psychology and Neuroscience, combined with Rock Climbing, Snowboarding, Surfing, and Muay Thai in a scientifically proven system (Psy-Fi System™) that guarantees results and has lead CliffHanger Academy to become the #1 Psychology-Fitness Experience in the U.S.

David's experience is rooted in 13+ years as a corporate communicator partnering with Fortune 500 corporations & America’s top 100 law firms leading to over $4 billion in wins. David has also aided some of the top 7% of non-profits in the United States in their communication strategies.

Outside of the boardroom, David has traveled to 49 countries, surfed a two-story wave, free-soloed a 700-foot mountain with no rope and descended some of the most famous peaks in the western hemisphere on a snowboard. When not teaching indoors, you'll find him in the outdoors honing his skills in wilderness first-aid, avalanche safety and self-defense.

In addition to co-founding an environmental collective and serving as a Board Member for non-profits, David's passions are sustained by leading a group of Christian men at Hillsong NYC to navigate the trials and tribulations of life as well as educating individuals on the importance of public speaking as a President with Toastmasters, International.

There are a handful of states that the NASW does not cover because those states want to maintain their independent authority to approve, or not, providers and courses. New York is one of these states. BUT: In New York State, the Office of Professions controls the approval process instead of the NASW. We are an approved provider by the NY State Office of Professions.In other words:

  • In the State of New York, SWEET Institute is approved by the Office of Professions under Dr. Sidor Psychiatric Services as a CEU provider for social workers (#SW-0471) and mental health counselors (#MHC-0127).
  • Our live and self-study webinars are individually approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in 46 additional states. SWEET courses are NOT approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in: Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia.
