I am passionate about people living the lives that they want to live.

Working with hundreds of people in corporations and the public sector over the years, I have seen first hand the quiet desperation that pervades so many people's lives.

I have worked with Fortune 500 companies, law firms, energy companies, unions, teachers, students, and parents. The common theme I have heard in thirty years of my work with groups and individuals is a longing for greater self-connection, self-understanding, a desire for meaningful and purposeful work, and a greater sense of fulfillment. This lack of meaning and purpose is, in my opinion, one of the great tragedies of the postmodern world. Wanting to address this tragedy is why I do the work I do.

My vision is for people to be living lives that are meaningful, creative, and fulfilling. In my Individual and Team Coaching and Organizational Development work, I engage my clients on a deeply personal and professional level. Some examples of where we might start are:

-- What conversations are you not having in your life that you need to have?

-- What is it that has you doing the work you do?

-- What are your dreams?

-- What would you do even if you didn't get paid?

As the quote on my home page asks: "I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing."
