"No one ever does it alone"
"Outliers ...the story of success"
The image of a lone adventurer, tenaciously blazing a trail to the pinnacle of personal success, completely unaided, is a common misconception. This is not how the overwhelming majority of highly functioning people achieve greatness.
The most amazing people you know or have ever heard of didn't succeed on their own, they had help ...a lot of help!
Have you noticed that, at times of recognition or award, most public figures accept the highest honors in their respective fields by going on and on thanking the countless people who helped them achieve it?
They're not just being polite.
What may appear to be outstanding individual greatness on the part of any person is usually the result of a team effort of many people helping to develop that individual's greatness.
Determination and perseverance are important but almost always not enough to live at higher levels of personal success. Many people apply tremendous effort and commitment for long periods of time, sometimes years, yet are left feeling the best of their potential is still, as yet, un-tapped.
Often, the key to the fulfillment of that potential is revealed through working with the right mentor, adviser or coach. The importance of education, experienced perspective, guidance, skills development and motivation that proper coaching provides is often the difference between reliving continued cycles of frustration and experiencing the satisfaction of personal triumph.
Olympic medalists, professional athletes, corporate executives and the world's most successful entrepreneurs, regularly realize amazing results from working with advisers, mentors, trainers and coaches.
You can too.
So often, the internal fire that energizes us can also fuel powerful frustration. Questions burn; "If people think i'm so amazing, why am i not super successful?", "Why is all this potential still potential and not manifest itself into my dream life?", "Why do i feel like i'm a good person but keep struggling in relationships?", "Why do i have so much going for me but am still dissatisfied with my life?".
A strong parallel can be drawn between the purpose of a life coach that of a professional athletic coach. Most famous coaches are not known for teaching the specific mechanics of the game as much as they're known for un-locking the greatness in players who already know how to play. Beyond the athlete's outwardly demonstrated skills, they can see the greatness inside the individual. More importantly, the best coaches seem to intuitively know how to guide people around their internal barriers, cut the ties of old limiting ideas and allow people to excel to amazing levels of personal success with the power they've always had in them.
The game i coach is the art of living well, whatever that means to you. Most people i coach already know how to live, they know what they want to be doing, they know that happiness is possible but they feel it's just outside their grasp.
People come to me for help unlocking the secret of a happy life. Most of the time, when we release the magic that's already inside, their wildest dreams fall short of the amazing life they actually begin to live. Really.
I've been honored to help many people by referral from therapists, psychiatrists and other health care professionals, assisting as enhancement to traditional therapy.

I'd love to help...
I've come to serve many people by way of "coincidences", chance meetings that have been very mutually beneficial. Perhaps your reading this now is one of those coincidences...
Send an e-mail or give me a call, let's talk about what you'd like to do... or stop doing, doors you'd like opened, closure you'd like to experience; your needs and desires for healing and growth...
There are many different ways we can work together. With an open mind and a willing heart, anything is possible, really.
