Badass Counseling


Unleashing Excellence

The most LIFE-CHANGING counseling you have ever experienced while being cost-effective and time-efficient! It's intense & moves fast! This is NOT psychology; it's SPIRITUAL COUNSELING*, which means it goes categorically deeper and moves at a much higher velocity than any counseling you've experienced before. it's about finding your TRUE VOICE, deep within, the voice of the gods murmuring deep within your soul your highest truth and MOST POWERFUL SELF!

My Mission

"I'm the guy who finally brings you to true happiness, lasting peace, and finally, finally, finally a sense of real clarity about life and who you really are. That's it. That's what I do. I tap into and find the real you, and help you have the courage to become who you really are, deep down. And I happen to really kick ass at what I do!"

Sven Erlandson is the de facto father of the ‘Spiritual But Not Religious’ movement and is credited with coining the phrase

What is DIY BADASS and why does it work?

The single biggest mistake most therapists make is letting clients talk too much, ironically enough. Do that for 10 months, get nowhere, and you’ll find yourself longing for a therapist who can actually give you direction, solve your problems, and lead you out of your hell.

DIY BADASS is the culling of 25 years of insights and wisdom as a soul counselor to the most intense and successful leaders, athletes, thinkers, and artists. In human misery and hardship there are patterns. The soul medicine of Badass Counseling is born of those patterns and successfully solves the problems causing those patterns in your life.  Just like in-person counseling, you bring the life story, a DIY BADASS brings the guidance and leadership by laying out for you what is really going on and what you most need to do. It’s DIY, self-paced therapy at the feet of the master of high-intensity counseling — Sven Erlandson, MDiv. This isn’t for kids or those just looking for motivation. It’s for those who know success and know what it is to still feel unfulfilled, lost, or that you’re capable of so much more!!
