Practice Description: What I do:
I counsel/coach individuals, couples, and groups to have successful lives and life partnerships by helping them increase their awareness, identify, and clarify their purpose and passion, and develop a plan to manifest the life and relationship they want. I also provide therapy to help clients overcome obstacles in their path toward reaching their goals.

My Mission:
My mission is to direct myself and others towards a life filled with peace and love. I do this by working with clients on basic skills such as asking for what they want, saying no to what they don't want, letting go of assumptions, personalization, and attachment, and helping people achieve self acceptance, authenticity, peace, and love.

I began my career in Marketing and Sales in the High Tech Medical Electronics Industry, and worked my way up to General Management. After 25 years in the field, I found myself job hopping, unhappy, and disillusioned. I recognized that I loved working with subordinates, peers, and other executives on managerial and work related relationship issues, and began doing what was dubbed (at the time) executive or managerial coaching. I met and joined David Steele and LifePartnerQuest (now Relationship Coaching Institute) as a partner in November 1997, studied coaching at several schools, took over RCISV, and co-authored the workbook "Relationship Success Training for Singles". I then returned to school to get my Masters in Counseling Psychology to better prepare me to live my vision, offering both coaching and therapy.

I am a caring and compassionate man.
I am living my vision in my beautiful home in the peaceful, quiet, and clean Santa Cruz Mountains. I have three grown children, I share love and devotion with my wife and dog. I am devoted to creating love and intimacy in all of my relationships.

Coaching and Therapy Style:
I am solution focused, goal-oriented, intuitive, supportive and gentle. I will encourage you to stay focused on your agenda and move toward your goal, but I will not cajole you. Clients have noted my caring, compassionate, and loving way of coaching. I have been called inspirational. I employ Eastern Philosophy and Spirituality where appropriate, and use a number of different therapeutic orientations depending upon the clients’ needs.
