As a coach, my goal is to assist clients in enhancing their relationships, careers, and day-to-day experiences. I believe that self-esteem and confidence are fundamental to achieving one's life goals and aspirations. These qualities serve as the foundation for manifesting our deepest desires, which is why it's critical to cultivate them in every aspect of our lives.

It's surprising that 85% of people lack confidence in some areas of their lives. Those who are confident, on the other hand, are happier since they are more emotionally stable, have a positive mindset, and feel greater self-acceptance. Additionally, confidence allows us to tackle new experiences and challenges with ease.

Building confidence is an essential part of being true to oneself, as it radiates naturally from within. It eliminates the need to create an artificial or fake persona, allowing individuals to be their authentic selves. When one possesses true confidence, there is no need to worry about experiencing imposter syndrome - the feeling of being a fraud or not belonging in a particular situation. True confidence paves the way for success, ensuring that individuals can thrive without fear of failure.

I work with clients around the world of all cultures, ethnicities, religions, and sexual/gender identities. I don't care what you look like, what god you pray to, or who you love - everyone is welcome to my coaching.


Life coaching and therapy are both valuable tools that can help you achieve personal and professional goals — but their focus, approach, and outcomes differ.

Life coaching is a collaborative process that helps you identify and achieve your goals in various areas of your life, such as career, relationships, health, or personal growth. In contrast, therapy is a process of diagnosing and treating mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, or addiction.

While therapy primarily focuses on addressing past traumas and emotional coaching focuses on the present and future, helping you develop self-awareness, clarify your values and priorities, and create actionable plans to achieve your goals and dreams. Life coaching is ideal if you are looking to enhance your personal or professional life, gain clarity about your purpose, or navigate through challenging transitions, such as career changes, relocation, relationship issues, and more.

Life coaching can be more beneficial than therapy in some cases because it is a proactive and results-oriented approach that helps you develop skills, strategies, and habits that can improve your quality of life in the long term. Unlike therapy, life coaching does not focus on diagnosing and treating mental health conditions but rather on empowering you to reach your full potential, increase your confidence, and overcome limiting beliefs that might be holding you back.

Life coaching is also typically a shorter process than therapy, as it does not involve complex mental health issues. Life coaching sessions are often goal-oriented and action-driven...providing you with practical tools and strategies to achieve your desired outcomes.

It is important to consider your specific needs and goals and choose the best approach for you.


In 1995 I earned a degree in philosophy from The University of California, Santa Cruz. My degree provided a strong foundation for my career as a coach. While philosophy and coaching might seem unrelated at first glance, many of the skills and insights gained through the study of philosophy are directly applicable to life coaching. Here's how my philosophy degree contributes to my success as a life coach:

  • Active listening and empathy: Philosophy students learn to engage in active listening and develop empathy by understanding and considering different perspectives. As a life coach, these skills are essential for building rapport with clients, understanding their needs, and helping them navigate their challenges.
  • Critical thinking: Philosophers are trained to analyze complex ideas and think critically. This skill is invaluable for a life coach, as it enables them to help clients assess their beliefs, identify patterns in their thinking, and challenge limiting assumptions.
  • Problem-solving: Philosophy students develop strong problem-solving skills through analyzing and dissecting complex philosophical problems. As a life coach, this ability can help clients find creative solutions to their own challenges, set realistic goals, and develop actionable plans.
  • Ethical decision-making: Studying philosophy often involves exploring ethical theories and principles, which can inform a life coach's approach to guiding clients through difficult decisions. A strong ethical foundation can help a life coach provide sound advice and maintain professional integrity.
  • Communication skills: Philosophy students learn to articulate complex ideas clearly and concisely, which is a vital skill for life coaches. Effective communication enables life coaches to convey ideas, provide feedback, and facilitate meaningful conversations with clients.
  • Adaptability and open-mindedness: Philosophy encourages questioning assumptions and considering alternative viewpoints. As a life coach, this open-mindedness can help adapt to different clients' needs and tailor coaching approaches to best suit each individual.
  • Self-reflection and self-awareness: The study of philosophy often involves introspection and self-examination, which can lead to increased self-awareness. A life coach with strong self-awareness can better understand their own biases, strengths, and weaknesses, ultimately leading to more effective coaching.
  • Understanding human behavior: Philosophy often explores questions related to human nature, motivation, and behavior. This knowledge can help a life coach better understand the factors influencing their clients' actions and choices, providing valuable insights for guiding clients towards personal growth.



I demonstrate the importance of perseverance, confidence, self-esteem, and intention in achieving one's goals. These qualities are crucial for success and fulfillment in life, and I strive to embody them daily.

I am grateful for the opportunity to inspire and assist individuals worldwide in their personal growth journey. With freedom and flexibility in my life, I can fully dedicate myself to this purpose.

Let me share my journey with you.

After graduating college, my ambitious goal was to make a fortune and retire young. At age 22, I was already a top producer at a tech consulting firm in Silicon Valley, generating over $2 million in revenue and managing over 100 consultants statewide. My clients included Charles Schwab, Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of America, and AT&T, among others.

However, just as I was about to receive a promotion that would increase my annual earnings to $250,000, fate intervened. A repetitive strain injury in my hands and arms left me rated as 40% disabled by the state of California.

I was devastated. My ambitious goals and future career plans were suddenly derailed, and my income disappeared. As you can imagine, I was terrified about my future, and the shame I felt about my disability was overwhelming.

I soon realized that to survive in a world where hand use is a requirement for most professions, I would need to find a new path forward. The first few years away from constant computer use helped my arms heal enough to live pain-free, and gave me the opportunity to think deeply about what I wanted to do with my life, considering that I was instantly shunned from 99.99% of all professions at age 23.

Through this journey, I realized that my success was never defined by my resume or bank account, but rather by my perspective, mindset, and level of intention. Despite the challenges and dark days, I dove headfirst into uncharted territories with confidence, intention, and perseverance, and I succeeded.

I am proud of what I have accomplished and want to help others achieve their dreams and goals. If I can do it despite a major physical disability, so can you. Let me help you get there.
