He is the pioneer of proactive neuroplasticity utilizing DRNI―deliberate, repetitive, neural information. He currently works nationally with 630 LGBTQ+ persons with social anxiety disorder. A published worldwide academic author, Mullen’s dissertation focused on advanced human potential―the capacity to harness the intrinsic aptitude for extraordinary living and the potential to lift the human spirit. His academic disciplines include contemporary behavior, modified psychobiography, and method psychology and he has the unique combination of his professional work and own anxiety experiences to support his conclusions.
Dr. Mullen is a firm advocate of the Wellness Model of mental healthcare, disputing the effectiveness of the etiology-driven disease or medical model and the one-size-fits-all approach to recovery. Mindful that recovery remission is not achieved by focusing on deficits and weakness, ReChanneling emphasizes the positivity of our inherent strengths, virtues, and attributes. The overarching objective is rechanneling negative perspectives and self-images by harnessing our intrinsic aptitude for extraordinary living and the potential to lift the human spirit. His academic disciplines include contemporary behavior, modified psychobiography, and positive psychologies,

- I have never encountered such an efficient professional . . . His work transpires dedication, care, and love for what he does. Jose Garcia Silva, Ph.D./Composer, Cosmos
- It doesn’t come easy. Having the tools is just the start. Really understanding them all is still a challenge and the constant, long-term repetitiveness of DRNI is brutal. I’m not perfect by any means and I fall back a lot… Life is much better. I came into the program registering about a 9 out of 10 on the Richter scale of anxiety and depression. I’m now between 3 and 5 and working to get even more in control. G, practicum participant.

- Dr. Mullen hits the nail on the head with ReChanneling. Reverend Richard Carlini
- Wow! That is a very powerful article. It appears that a large portion of Social Anxiety centers around forgiveness: Others who have hurt me; me hurting myself; and me hurting others. I have forgiven my parents, though their negative tapes still play in my head at times. It seems like an ongoing work-in-process forgiving myself. I still have a way to go there. M, Group Member.
Why is your support essential? ReChanneling is dedicated to research and development of methods to alleviate symptoms of psychological dysfunction and discomfort. Our vision is to reshape the current pathographic emphasis on diagnoses over individual, which fosters a deficit, disease model of human behavior. Treatment programs must disavow ineffective, one-size-fits-all approaches and target the individual personality through communication, empathy, collaboration, and an integration of historically and clinically practical methods. All donations support scholarships for workshops and practicums.
