A friend of mine says,
"You cannot manage that which is undistinguished, therefore it runs you."
If you want to change your life, you must manage your behavior.
If you want to manage your behavior you must own what you feel.
If you want to own what you feel, you must own your thoughts.
We begin with building language and distinctions. However...
"Insight without action is illusion."
If we cannot translate this inner work into real-world behavioral change,
then we - both you and I - have wasted our time, attention and effort.
I will help you learn to manage your feelings, thoughts and behaviors
through the application of Emotional Literacy and Emotional Intelligence,
working directly with you in these specific areas according to your need:
Emotional Literacy and Emotional Intelligence are the key. Decades of behavioral-decision research has consistently shown that emotions, more than any other contributing factor, are what motivate us to act. Every decision we make, every choice to act or not act is determined by our intention to manage our feelings in one way or another. This is the single pivot point upon which rests the entire experience of our quality of life.
"Low self-esteem is a 'doing' wound. We don't believe or feel we are capable and competent.
The remedies for low self-esteem and low self-worth are both similar and unique, and frankly they are not that difficult to repair. Together they create the foundation for the presence or absence of that essential confidence we need to venture forth into the world and create the lives we want and deserve." (Contact me)
- Empowering Authentic Self -
My one wish for you is what you wish for yourself.
I know that whatever the reasons by which you come to me, your needs, goals and objectives are as unique and specific to you as they have been for every client with whom I have ever worked, and at the same time, those goals are universal and common to us all.
You want to build your career, or you want better relationships with your family and loved ones. You want more confidence, or you want to manage your time more effectively. You want less stress and a better sense of direction about your place in the world. You want to know that you matter, that what you do contributes - makes a positive difference - for the people you care about. You want to be happy, you want peace, contentment and connection. Maybe you want all of those things. Yep, you and me both.
I have worked with hundreds of clients over the last thirty years, and without exception, I have found that we are all just trying to manage the quality of our experience of life. We just want to get our needs met and we want to feel good about it. That's why you're here on this page, isn't it? You have the hope and the faith that the quality of your experience of life can be different from what it has been in the past. You know it's possible. You just aren't quite certain about how to get there from here. I understand.
I will listen to you and treat you with the respect, compassion and understanding that you deserve. I know that the stuff that isn't working in your life, whatever it might be that upsets you - whatever places you might get stuck - these challenges, obstacles and difficulties are all neon signs pointing directly at our most important life lessons. Most of us just lack the key to understanding and integrating these experiences, so that we can become free to choose and create what we want for ourselves. It's as if we are tourists walking on the street in Hong Kong. We can see all the signs, but we just don't know how to read them, so we don't know what they mean. No wonder we get lost.
I can help you with that. This is what I do best, and I absolutely love that I get to do this work with all kinds of different people. But please remember, I act only as an agent for your empowerment. This work is about YOU, your choice, your power, your life, your best answers - not mine. No one can do this work for you but you. If you want to make your life work, then it would be an honor and a privilege for me to be your companion, partner and ally on your journey to freedom.
Do you feel any resonance with this? Do you recognize something true about your life in what I've said so far? If so, then trust yourself, be courageous and open the door to possibility. Contact me and let's find out if working with me is your next step.
My favorite client is one who is deeply commited to his or her own truth.
Without exception, my clients want:
Connection instead of isolation
- My Coaching Philosophy -
I have repeatedly observed that each of us has the wisdom and power within us to make our life be what we want it to be. I see the coaching relationship as an alliance, a partnership, a process of inquiry that empowers clients to reconnect with their own inner wisdom, to find their own answers, to rediscover those powerful moments of choice out of which lasting change grows.
In my experience, we are all whole beings with whole lives and every choice we make affects every other aspect of our lives. Our work affects our relationships. Our relationships touch our spirituality. Our spiritual well being affects our capacity for joy which affects our work and so on, round and round. I coach the whole person. I believe you deserve the life you want.
So... Who are you? What is important to you? What are your challenges? What gets in your way? Where do you want to go? How would you feel if your life were just exactly the way you wanted it to be? When would you like to begin? How about right now?
