As an Organizational Psychologist, Coach, and Consultant, I am constantly challenged by my practice of humility. I don’t have the answers, but to create a space where you feel confident to explore, experiment, and find the answers that work best for you. My job is to hold space. The best mentors I’ve had never told me what to do. They asked me what I wanted to do and encouraged me to follow the path I was drawn to. When I lost motivation or felt discouraged they reflected back to me my purpose and helped guide me back on track.
While I love theory and philosophy, as a coach I find sifting through tons of research to find practical application, initially driven by my own personal desire to improve my life. As a young man (not much younger than I am now) I struggled with anxiety, depression, addiction issues, and work-related stress. Despite all my accomplishments, I experienced a great sense of shame and failure. I was admired and respected as a professional all while struggling to maintain a facade. I was suffering and sought desperately to find a solution. Ultimately, trying to manage my struggles on my own led to the destruction of my career and the life I worked so hard to build. Gratefully, I’ve been given a second chance.
Supporting my clients through their challenges is an opportunity for me to offer what I desperately needed when I wanted to give up, hope. I’ve come to love sharing my experience, strength, and wisdom with the clients I work with and I’d be honored to share and take part in your journey with you.
