Even on good days, it's tough to find strength and motivation to keep up.

Struggling to keep up can feel incredibly demoralizing. You want what's best for your patients, but who cares for you? By choosing to show up for yourself, you are choosing to let go of 2/3rds of the physical weight you carry, rooted in the emotional pain of grief, stress, and overwhelm. I'm here to help.


Welcome! I'm Chaplain Ryan, the founder of Focused Pathways™ and your Clinical EFT Practitioner.

Having navigated grief, trauma, and the intense pressures of frontline service myself—as an infantryman, medic, nurse, and chaplain—I truly understand the journey you're on. It’s about more than just knowing the path; it’s about walking it with you. Here, you’re in a place where your feelings of loss, stress, and the quest for peace are met with genuine empathy and individualized strategies. Before anything else, know that you've found a space of understanding and support. I'm glad you are here.

Grief is a natural response to loss, marked by conflicting and often overwhelming emotions. It arises from the absence of someone or something significant in our lives. It can feel like reaching out to someone who is no longer there or longing for someone who was never present. It's a profound journey through our emotions.

As a Private Practice Chaplain committed to guiding individuals through life's challenges, I employ evidence-based methods rooted in psychology to ensure the highest quality of care.


One approach I professionally practice is Clinical EFT, which has demonstrated remarkable results in improving various aspects of well-being. Research has shown:

  • Healthcare workers experienced up to a 68% improvement in physical pain after just one Clinical EFT session in 216 cases.

  • PTSD symptoms were reduced by 86% after only six Clinical EFT sessions in certain cases.

  • Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) saw a 41% reduction in symptoms.

  • A triple-blind study revealed a 50.05% decrease in cortisol levels, a hormone associated with stress, anxiety, and depression, after just one hour-long session.

Take a moment to hear about previous clients' experiences, and you'll know you're in good hands.
