I have consulted with leaders of major organizations such as Booze, Allen&Hamilton, Goldman Sachs, Miter, Deloitte etc., in order to help maximize leadership potential, and expertise. Coaching allows individuals and groups to identify non productive narratives and create “bridges” to new productive outcomes,
I have extensive training and experience in the area of remarriage and step family issues, and try to help individuals identify and work more effectively in creating the relationships and families they wish to have. Coaching is especially useful in identifying expectations and blocks that create conflict when trying to reconnect.
I have travelled the world and have gained insight into how cultural and familial influences shape the ways people hold and respond to life’s challenges. My life’s journey includes travel to remote places, living with individuals in South East Asia, the Amazon jungles and Paula New Guinea, and travel across the Sahara has allowed me to gain an understanding of different perspectives. I do consulting with numerous Washington Embassies in the area of cultural influences on relationships. Additionally, I have spent seven years active duty in the military, am a DiveMaster with 2,000 dives and hold two black belts in martial arts. The combination of these experiences provides an anchor for my work and allows my clients to maximize their potential.
