From Software Architect to falling in love with our humanity. Since the age of nine I have been called to "healing". Then my plan was to be a doctor. I imagined being a "small town doctor" making house calls. Life occurs, identities get created, false limited beliefs get formed and many years later, I am back to the wisdom my nine year old self held ... being a healer of the human spirit. Below is a synopsis of that "professional" journey.

My Coaching Philosophy
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
I imagine a world with no borders around our hearts nor around the planet. To "get there" takes understanding our humanity and expanding into our full potential as humans. This means integrating our whole being fully. We are taught by our parents and our education systems that the "brain" rules supreme. This error in judgement and limited belief leads to living inauthentically and causes humans to struggle with the nature of being human. Enter the heart and the body (gut). Along comes Neuroscience to "prove" what humans millennials ago already knew ... we have a natural wholeness. Our separation was made up in the brain and perpetuated down into our societies.
Coaching reverses this trend to help the client see the wholeness they already are and "re-integrate" that wholeness into all of life. In the Co-Active coaching model this is known as "You are already naturally creative, resourceful and whole". Playfully I add to this, "You forgot".
I help you "remember who you are".
