certified professional coach, ELI-MP
As a certified professional coach, my specialty is working with people who find themselves on the threshold between old and new roles; between who they have been and who they will be. This is a place I’ve been numerous times myself.
I’ve been a professional classical musician. I helped my wife start and run a small food manufacturing business. I’ve been a self employed-graphic designer. I became a husband and father. I’m in the empty nest stage of life. And now I’m a life coach working with empty nesters as they embark on their own next adventure.
As a certified coach I am well prepared to help clients improve their lives efficiently, effectively and with lasting results. In addition to my formal training, I have studied the works of many different teachers. A small portion of them include: Eckhart Tolle, Joseph Campbell, Robert Bly, Michael Meade, James Hillman, Deepak Chopra, Pema Chodron, Brene Brown, Don Miguel Ruiz, Tony Robbins, Rumi and Parker Palmer. I am a graduate of the Hoffman Process and have begun certification in the use of the Enneagram.
My degrees (Bachelor’s and Master’s in Music) and years of experience in the arts as both performer and teacher were an important part of preparing me for coaching. Aside from mastering the tools of one’s art, the best art requires artists become masters of themselves. Uncovering my own hidden thoughts, passions, motivations, aspirations, fears, and habits brought a depth of soul to my work and life. Helping my students do the same was profoundly fulfilling. Combine those experiences with decades studying spirituality and psychology mentioned above, and I’ve become adept at cutting through the clutter of life and finding the light shining behind it.
In working with me, clients can expect a compassionate guide who will help them discover what is needed for them to lead a life of fulfillment, success, and joy. This can result in a renewed sense of purpose and wide open possibilities as well as deeper authenticity, more loving relationships, and even a sense of peace. As your coach I’ll be your partner and occasional teacher. I’ll celebrate successes with you and give you a gentle push when you need it. I’m also someone who believes the universe is on our side, that our entire past (the good and the bad) has brought us to where we are, and that it’s up to us to chart our own course for the future.
