There are times when we know that we need to make a change in our life. You might be noticing a quiet unrest, a consistent dissatisfaction, or the call to change may come through a life transition---a death, a loss, job or relationship stress, illness suddenly needing to care for elders or children moving home. The circumstances can vary, but the knowledge that change is needed is clear. My goal is to help you discover your true potential while we sort out what needs to be different, and lead you into a life that is worth celebrating.

I energize clients to transform their lives by showing them how embracing change as a dynamic process is fun, deeply profound and life-changing, and one that greatly enhances connections with family and friends.
Who really gets you? Not feeling heard or appreciated? Lonely? Time to be bold? Change is hard and can be scary, but we change by taking one small step. That takes courage. Asking for help is really okay. I offer a caring and safe space in which you get to explore your emotional needs, overcome limiting and perfectionistic beliefs, and create a vision for a richer and more meaningful life. My approach to therapy is collaborative, holistic, non-authoritarian and respectful, and I take into consideration your relationships, family traditions, work life, cultural and spiritual beliefs, and social and sexual identities -- in short, your STORY!

I recently published a book, The Pebble and the Canyon: Reflections on Composing Your Life, which evolved from my work with clients.
I have counseled individuals, families, and couples for forty-four years. I assist clients with issues that include depression, anxiety, family communication, career choices, and the stress of physical illness. Trained in psychodynamic, client-centered, and Jungian methods, I tailor counseling to the needs of clients. I favor approaches that respect innate creativity, core values, and interdependence. In addition to talking, other modalities may include relaxation and imagery, sometimes called self-hypnosis, journaling, and the use of art. As a former priest I bring to my practice the conviction that problems are ultimately resolved by finding meaning and purpose.

We each have a fundamental need for connection, autonomy, and belonging. Motivation and behavior are specific and variable. I listen, reflect, and ask questions. I translate the science of wellbeing into actionable practices to help clients connect their needs, values, and strengths with their actions and visions; to raise consciousness, cultivate emotional intelligence, explore limiting beliefs, master mindsets, build relational life skills, lean into their purposes; live, love, and lead with intention.

Life Coaching Therapists

What can I expect from life coaching?

Clients and coaches will typically start by identifying the problem area(s) that the client hopes to address—then, the coach will help the client brainstorm potential solutions and explore concrete techniques to help the client attain their goals. Coaching is typically short-term and focused on finding solutions in the here and now, rather than exploring a client’s past. In addition to strategies aimed at the client’s specific concerns, coaches may encourage general stress management techniques such as meditation.

Can a life coach help treat anxiety?

Because the majority of life coaches are not licensed clinicians, they are not qualified to diagnose or treat anxiety. Anyone struggling with anxiety or another mental health condition should seek help from a licensed mental health practitioner. However, some coaching clients who struggle with subclinical anxiety report that working with their coach on other problems—such as career dissatisfaction or unhealthy habits—has a positive effect on their anxiety.

Can life coaching be done online?

Yes. While life coaching often happens in person, many coaches conduct sessions over the phone or via online platforms such as Zoom or Skype. Because life coaches are not subject to local licensing regulations in the same way that therapists are, they are able to see clients who live in other locations.

How long does life coaching last?

Life coaching tends to be a shorter-term process than therapy, though it does not always unfold over a specific period of time and is instead based on the coach’s or the client’s preferences. Coaching often takes place over three to 12 months but may be shorter or longer if necessary.
