quote 1Why Do I Coach?

Working with others for the purpose of transforming and aligning people’s lives and experiences with joy, love, meaning, fun, inspiration and success is the greatest reward for me as a human being. Not only do I have the pleasure of working with remarkable individuals, but I get to experience over and over again, the connection to the work and the healing that I believe in so deeply. I love coaching because I get to witness beauty and greatness and courage on a regular basis; The bottom line is I get to coach people in designing and living the life of their dreams.

Coaching Philosophy

I believe that we all have the answers to our own questions inside of us, but we have forgotten how to access them. Due to a lifetime of self-protection (hiding/stuffing feelings), we have blocked the access to our inner knowing. My role as a coach is to help you remember how to access your inner knowing by assisting you to remove those blocks. I do this in an atmosphere of uncompromising safety, support and encouragement. I also believe in listening with my heart, as well as my ears to what is being said… and not said. I will ask you questions, so that I can understand you. I will help you create the life you always wanted. I see coaching and life much the same way: as an adventure for growth and learning.

Together we will co-create your plan using concrete processes and tools to move you toward your goals. The plan will include specific timelines and mileposts to quantify your progress, as well as proven techniques to move you when you feel stuck. Make no mistake, I will hold you accountable to achieve what you set out to achieve, and I will, at the same time, be your biggest cheerleader along the way. What I will not do is shame, coerce, berate or punish you. In our work together, we will design a new belief system that is customized to your own development. Together, we will seek and discover and put into practice the dynamic process that can actually set you free.

How Did I Become a Coach?

After my initial disappointment with my pro athletic career coming to a close, I felt lost, so I sought out help and hired a life coach, which dramatically changing my life. In our work together, I started to look at some of the patterns that no longer served me; I identified exactly what it was I wanted to create in my life (i.e. career, relationships, and lifestyle). I began to shift old patterns and replace them with new practices that better reflected what I wanted to achieve in my life. Over a period of the last 12 years, I have developed a true affinity for what I do and who I can help. Today, I am a certified life coach and work with a diverse group of executives, athletes, entrepreneurs, business professionals and artists. I guide, coach and support my clients in carving out a new destiny aligned with passion and focus for creating their ideal life. Whether you want to make subtle tweaks to improve you current business and personal life or design a completely new story for yourself, my job, and my joy, is to coach you through it!
