Over the past 35 years, I’ve worked with many successful people from many walks of life, including Academy Award winners, Pulitzer Prize winners, Senators, Congressmen, CEO’s, college presidents, inventors and business owners. Although they all experienced tremendous professional success, they all sought my help because their lives were out of balance and they were ready to make a change. I’ve also worked with many people who were not so publicly recognized, yet were sincerely interested in making positive changes in their lives. No matter who you are, I have found the keys to positive change involve: focusing your energy and intention on what is important to you, identifying and tapping into your strengths and resources, developing specific, effective strategies, and cultivating a positive mindset that inspires effective action.

My approach to coaching helps you to identify what is most important to you and skillfully direct your energy toward creating the life you want. You may want to focus on improving your health and well-being or on enhancing important relationships in your life. You may want to focus on your career or an important project you are involved in. As we work together, you will identify your goals, create a plan, and develop strategies that lead to positive results.

Coaching, like therapy, is a collaborative relationship focused on your growth and development. However, it is different from therapy in some important ways. The focus of therapy tends to be on your emotional life and it often involves emotional healing work. Coaching focuses more on achieving specific goals by developing strategies and taking concrete steps toward accomplishing those goals, such as advancing your career or improving your health in measurable ways.
