Coaching


What is Coaching all about?


Honestly, it comes down to one word: FEAR.  The thing is, fear takes many, sneaky forms.  And we, as humans, are really good at thinking it’s something else.  Our brains LOVE to find different reasons for not creating the life we want and tell us all the reasons and excuses we’re coming up with are legit and real.  And it’s often very compelling and convincing that even the best of us fall for it time and again.





The Power of Coaching




That’s where coaching comes into play.  A coach’s job is to help you navigate through the dark waters of life, to see the blocks that are in your way, the fears holding you back from whatever you want, and help guide you through.  You alone know what is best for you.  But sometimes, when it’s hard to see that, a coach helps you navigate the path ahead.

A coach’s job is to believe in you before you may be able to believe in yourself, to believe in what’s possible for you before you can see it, and to help move you in that direction.  Along the way, all kinds of bullshit will come up: Stories, Excuses, Fears…that’s the nature of things.




The Coach’s Role




My job is to help move you through it and keep going; hold you accountable, bring compassion and love to the fears, and help you do the same.

This work takes courage.

Don’t bullshit yourself that you don’t need a coach.  The whole “Independent Man, I must do it myself” bullshit is what’s keeping you from moving forward and exploring what’s possible.  That’s just a story that was fed to you by our culture and it’s been mis-interpreted.

If you did it all by yourself, you’d be completely alone.  And that can only take you so far.




Choice Is Key


Sustainability is the Goal




This is about making sustainable change.  Change that lasts long beyond a coaching relationship.  Change that you can use to construct and create your life the way you want it to be - On your terms.  This is about knowing yourself, knowing why you do what you do, and being aware of your thoughts, beliefs, actions, stories, excuses, emotions, unconscious, and everything else you have inside your mind, body, and soul that influence you on a daily basis.

Once you understand why you do what you do, and start bringing awareness to that, you all of a sudden have Choice.  Choice is powerful.  And when you choose to bring the awareness back into your heart, instead of your mind, instead of letting fear or doubt or bullshit stories control you, that is real power, what I call True Authentic Power.




And that takes courage, focus, determination, and love

My job is to help you do that


My background and Trainings

While certifications and credentials don’t make a coach, I’ve invested too much time, effort, money, and real tears learning all the tools and strategies I use in my coaching to hide them away. The most important success factor with a coach is “Fit” – whether we connect well together, however I’m appreciative of people’s interests in my background. Therefore, I’m including an overview of my education, trainings, and certifications that I bring to the table:
  • Master's of Arts in Spiritual Psychology (emphasis in Consciousness, Health, and Healing)

    From the University of Santa Monica

  • Master's of Science in Public Health (EMPHASIS IN GLOBAL HEALTH & HEALTH DISPARITIES)

    From Colorado State University

  • Strategic Intervention Coach - Certificate of Completion

Couple's Coaching

Couple’s Coaching

Relationships can truly be your greatest source of love...and pain.  Sometimes being in love takes work.  Coming together isn't always easy, nor is it meant to be.  We're meant to grow with each other and learn from each other. If that is feeling challenging right now, maybe some couple's coaching would help you understand each other more and deepen the love that's there. 


  • Safe, neutral environment to explore challenges and find solutions
  • Certification in Marriage and Divorce Prevention coaching through Robbins-Madanes offers unique insights into relationship dynamics
  • My wife Elsie, an incredible life and couple’s coach herself, can participate if it feels more comfortable for you both
