Transforming Your Dreams Into Reality...
I absolutely love my life! I owe this to finally realizing that it’s okay for me to enjoy doing many things. I used to have this idea that if I could just be disciplined enough to focus on one thing, then my life would be better, more successful. But whenever I did that, I’d feel less energy and even a bit dulled and deadened inside. What I’ve realized is this: for me, doing all the things I love is what brings me the most life, and helps me to truly thrive!
There have been four main loves in my life that continue to this day: love of music, love for animals, love of holistic and spiritual health, and love of love (helping others navigate their relationships and/or find a life partner).
For over 20 years, I have provided holistic and spiritual counseling to individuals and entrepreneurs. I find it extremely exciting to be a transformational coach to others through the DreamBuilder program, and specifically for the LGBT community: helping those in it to build their dreams, accelerate their results, and create richer, more fulfilling lives. As a Certified Dream Builder Coach, I can help you design and manifest a life that’s in harmony with your Soul’s purpose.
My formal education includes a Bachelor’s in Social Work, a Master’s in Holistic Health, and ongoing studies towards a Ph.D. in the same. I am also a graduate of the California Healing Arts College and the Life Mastery Institute.
Southern California is my current home, where I write music with my life partner Toast. I’m currently enjoying my Ph.D. studies and looking forward to writing and illustrating my first children’s book about “Cumin the Cat.” I’m also a VP on the Board of Directors for Infinite Love Animal Rescue, and help to make life better for cats & their humans through the Jackson Galaxy companies.
It's a lot, but I love all of it.
What would you love?
About the DreamBuilder Program: The DreamBuilder program is a system for accessing your capacity to create a life you LOVE in every way that matters to you. It consists of a 90-day program that was built upon over 40 years of research in the field of human potential. The DreamBuilder program is a proven, repeatable, reliable system that can be used again and again in creating a life you love! The program includes weekly audio lessons, workbook pages, meditations to use throughout, and a coaching call with me every week for 12 weeks.
About my training as a DreamBuilder Coach: I trained as a DreamBuilder Coach with Mary Morrissey. Mary has spoken three times at the United Nations, facilitated three week-long meetings with The Dalai Lama, and met with Nelson Mandela to address the significant issues of our world. She is among the world's elite teachers in personal development, and founded Life Mastery Institute®: The Premier Life Coach Certification Company in the world. PBS turned her book, Building Your Field of Dreams, into a TV special. Mary has 40 years experience empowering individuals to achieve new heights of spiritual aliveness, wealth, and authentic success. Personally, one of my favorite things about Mary is that, out of all of her achievements, she always says she is most proud of her two black belts: one in Success and the other in Failure.
Complimentary Strategy Session: A Strategy Session is one-hour phone consultation that will help you gain more clarity on what you want, what's holding you back, and what your next, best step is. These sessions are a favorite part of my work and service! I continue to be amazed at how much can be accomplished in one hour. The shift in energy is palpable; the clarity and the possibilities that open up for clients are truly inspiring. Strategy Sessions often become the first step for people who continue on to the 90-day DreamBuilder Program. I carve out time to offer a few complimentary Strategy Sessions each month ($250 value). They usually book up quickly, so if you're interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is Transformational Coaching?
I help people 1) uncover what they truly want in life 2) clearly see their old paradigms and beliefs and 3) change those paradigms and beliefs in order to create a life that they absolutely love. An important coaching philosophy I maintain is:
My coaching method can be described as Evocative Coaching. The word evoke comes from the Latin evocare which means "to call forth." Evocative Coaching calls forth the best guidance and direction for a client by calling forth their own specific genius and inner wisdom. In Evocative Coaching, the coach and client create a partnership in discovery, calling forth the path that reveals itself along the way.
As your coach, I will bring attentive listening, understanding , and belief in you when you may have a hard time believing in yourself. You can expect me to offer fresh perspectives, make requests, suggest action steps, acknowledge your wins, and guarantee utmost confidentiality (to the fullest extent of the law, and so long as I don’t fear for you or another’s safety) in our powerful, sacred coaching relationship.
Who is it for?
Transformational coaching is for anyone seeking to better themselves and/or their life. It is especially for those who have been living with deep discontent for a long time – whether the source of that discontent is a job, relationship, money, etc., as well as for those who have a deep longing for something more.
What if I don't want to sign-up for the DreamBuilder Program, but am still interested in being coached?
No problem! Although the flagship program I offer is the DreamBuilder program (because of the huge positive impact it's had on me as well as so many others), some clients prefer to start with individual sessions, and those can be quite transformative as well.
Are results guaranteed?
As your coach, I am responsible to you, but not for you. This means that I’m responsible for delivering the best content possible and laying the foundation for transformation, but as you know, you are the only person who can do the work. I am responsible for showing you the door. You are responsible for walking through it. You are the only person who can create change in your life. You are 100% responsible for the results you create in this program. The more you put into the program, the more you will get out of it.
I cannot guarantee results because that depends on you. However, I’ve seen numerous clients create incredible results by having the courage and determination to apply the principles we discuss, and I guarantee that I will bring my best to help draw out your courage and determination to achieve those results. My experiences have shown over and over again that this works if you work it.
Are you a trained psychotherapist?
I am not a psychotherapist or physician, and I am not trained in diagnosing psychological or medical conditions. If any issues arise for you that I believe would be best handled by a licensed therapist or physician, I will suggest that you attend to this side of your healthy by contacting the appropriate professional.
How does payment work?
Payment can be made via credit card or check through a PayPal invoice that will be sent prior to scheduled sessions. Payment plans are available for those seeking to book several sessions in advance, or for DreamBuilder enrollment.
What’s the cancellation policy?
If you need to reschedule your appointment, I require at least 24 hours notice. If you have an emergency or illness, you can reschedule with less than 24 hours notice. If you miss a scheduled call, for any reason, and provide no notice, that session is lost and will not be made up. If I need to reschedule, I will give you at least 24 hours notice as well, barring an emergency.
