Why work with me?
Clients come to me because they think they’re missing something in their lives. It can be direction and purpose, connection and relationship, greater creation and achievement, wellbeing and happiness—all of them want more of these! What I offer them, the secret to my success you might say, is that I know whatever they think they’re missing, they already have it. They just can’t see it and understandably think it’s missing. I teach and coach from an understanding that by design we all come into this world with everything we need for a good life. The problems begin when we begin to think we are missing something, which then becomes the reality we experience. We start to look ‘out there’ for the better experience and feeling we want ‘in here’. We start believing in our thinking, and down the rabbit hole we go. I teach my clients a different way of thinking about life and their lives, how their experience of life really works, and how to find it for themselves. It’s a different direction.
If you choose to work with me, we begin with a three-day retreat. Banish from your mind any negative associations around the word ‘retreat’. We find a comfortable relaxing place where you can get away from the routines and distractions of daily life. It can be close to home or far away, though I prefer locations with easy access to trails, paths, and beaches. Two or three times a day, we meet and talk. The rest of the time is yours to reflect on what you’ve heard. When you return to your life, I promise you that your life will look different to you, with new possibilities and paths to explore, and a whole new way of thinking about Life. We meet weekly thereafter by video call for the duration of our engagement
If this sounds interesting, let’s explore the possibilities. I require all new prospective clients meet with me for a couple of sessions (at a nominal fee) to learn if there’s a fit and whether I can be of service to you.
When I left the world of business and finance, I knew that helping people had to be the focus of my next career. In the year following my departure from my business partners and Wall Street, a series of health crises that serendipitously steered me towards the field of coaching. There I found my health, my passion, and my calling. I committed myself to understanding the human mind and the possibility of transformational change.
I have two coaching credentials, two masters degrees (MBA from ASU Thunderbird School of Management and an MFA Writing from Bennington College, and over 30 years’ experience in the business and non-profit world. My coaching teachers include George & Linda Pransky, Dr Mark Howard, Michael Neill, Jamie Smart, Chip Chipman, and Dicken Bettinger.
I love my work, my clients, my family and my life. I like to sum it up this way: we are all born with everything we need to realize our dreams and to live a fulfilling life of happiness and well-being.
