I have been counseling, consulting and coaching most of my adult life. Certified since 2003, my clients are successful 50 + adults from around the country who want more for their selves, for their spirt and soul…something bigger, something deeper.
Coaching and teaching are my passions and fulfill my time teaching 4-5 year old children, coaching adults and teaching martial arts. … Teaching children is a joy, they are a busy bunch and the most authentic, curious and honest people I know.
My daily activities include focused meditation, nutritious delicious food (sometimes just plain bad food too, in moderation!), learning projects, working with children, coaching adults, training and playing with my dogs, Wing Tsun Kung Fu practice, some cool crime show or movie, reading, writing and intimate time with by beloved.
My beloved is Connie, a beautiful, wise, magnificent woman. Our lives have woven together in such beautiful ways – we live our work and grow our lives as we chat daily, spend time together every week, learn, love, grow and share.
We share 3 beautiful dogs: Ripples our Portuguese Water Dog and Karma & Duke our Australian Shepards.
