Two POWERFUL fields

All of the offerings in the Peak Mind Center incorporate state-of-the-art information, tools, and techniques from the powerful fields of Psychology and Life Design.


Your mind can be your greatest asset or your biggest liability. The choice is yours. Until now, the knowledge and tools from the field of Psychology were only available through therapy or in impossible-to-understand academic journal articles. We're bringing those tools and techniques to YOU!

Life Design

You're either living by design or by default. The choice is yours. Imagine how your life would feel if it was intentionally aligned to your unique set of values, strengths, and aspirations, if your lifestyle and daily habits brought out the best in you. This is life design.


Turn your mind into your most valuable asset, cultivate resilience and flexibility, and live with more ease and joy with our science-backed programs.

Dr. April Seifert

Social Cognitive Psychologist & Life Design Strategist

April holds a Ph.D. in Social Cognitive Psychology. This means, she has spent over a decade studying the ways our minds store information, form habitual and subconscious thought processes, and how all of that impacts our behavior and our life experience.

Like Ashley, April has experienced tremendous adversity in her life. After losing her father to cancer at a very young age, April herself was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a rare, unpredictable condition that she has lived with for over 25 years.

Finally, April's expertise and experience as a Life Design Strategist arose in her entrepreneurial ventures using the human-centered design process. She, too, uses her professional expertise within her own life to thrive!


Dr. Ashley Smith

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

With a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, Ashley has practiced as a licensed clinical psychologist for almost 15 years. Specializing in the treatment of anxiety-related issues, Ashley is an expert in psychological treatments that help people understand the ways in which their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors interrelate.

On the personal side, Ashley lives with a degenerative eye disorder that causes her to experience increasing levels of blindness. 

Not only is Ashley a true expert through her professional training and experience, but she has had personal experience using the tools and techniques that she teaches to live a fulfilling life, even in the face of adversity.
