About Mark

My story

My journey on the Path to (re)Discovering Who I Am

Native Long Islander Dr. Mark Arcuri is a sought-after author, coach, and speaker joining clients on their journey through life’s most challenging transitions to a place of inspired transformation. His distinctive style reflects his belief that everyone has the ability—indeed, the responsibility—to allow the magic of fulfillment into their life. He works with individuals and groups in a variety of life situations, whether imposed upon them by external happenings or chosen as they explore options on their life path. Virtually and onsite, with clients anywhere in the world.

After completing an undergraduate degree in psychology at SUNY Stony Brook in 1985 and a master’s degree in Psychology from New York University in 1987, Mark graduated from Capella University in Minneapolis with a PhD in Clinical Psychology in 2002. He went on to complete a post-doctoral fellowship in Consult Liaison Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.

It was while in Dallas that Mark accepted that his purpose was for something much more unique and powerful than a modern traditional psychology practice would allow. He sought diverse teachers from whom he drew wisdom and practical applications and embraced his belief in inherent wellness rather than illness, and unlocked his ability to guide others through an empowering process of self-discovery that is rooted in the power of seeing what others might call “symptoms” or difficult circumstances as simply experiences in need of integration into one’s life journey.

His broad exposure and popularity have led to speaking engagements all over the United States and in Mexico, as well as to a busy individual integrative coaching practice. Mark no longer offers psychological services to the general public but rather offers humanistic coaching services.

Believing as he does in integrating body, mind, and spirit Mark completed inaugural class of the Integrative Health and Lifestyle program in 2014 with Andrew Weil, MD and other faculty at the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona Medical School in Tucson, with a focus on the biopsychosocialspiritual aspects of Integrative Health and Wellness. He is currently completing a Foundations in Herbal Medicine program with Tieraona Low Dog, MD.

His first book, A Life Aligned: The Journey to Allowing the Magic in Your Life, quickly appealed to a worldwide audience when it was published in 2008; others are in various stages of completion including his much anticipated Paradise (re)Discovered: Your Path to Who You Really Are, expected in late 2019.

Mark loves virtual coaching sessions via video-conferencing, drawing energy while he works from his favorite places including Querétaro, Mexico; Santa Fe, New Mexico; South Florida’s beaches and the Florida Keys; and, Napa Valley. He also writes, teaches, and leads on-location workshops and seminars wherever he may be called.

Other interests include taking advantage of downtime with personal travel, outdoor activities, momentous friendships, gardening, cooking, home design, and afternoon respite and people-watching at neighborhood cafés and restaurants wherever that might be.

I love integrative health and wellness coaching sessions! Give a session a try and we’ll meet via a telemedicine platform that is quick and easy and free of additional cost to you. My belief is that at the core of your success in achieving any goal is a deep understanding of your current emotional, diet, exercise, and sleep habits, as well as your satisfaction in other areas of your life such as relationships, career, and spiritual practices, and overall happiness, and how they work in harmony or disharmony as things stand today. We will put together a bio-psycho-socio-spiritual model of your life, apply some tweaks that actually pretty easy, and quickly take things to extraordinary heights!

  • Feel better
  • Live better

  • And, most importantly, I  can help you to (re)Discover who you really are and to live every day from that place of divine purpose and inspiration… and… to Be Better!
