Wonder, Awe, and Joy
Opening myself and others to the wonder and joy of this world lights me up. If you are ready to light up your own life, I want to be your coach.
As your coach, I'll help you hear, see and feel what you already know about yourself and what's next.
We'll identify what's helping you get what you want and what's in your way, and then start moving toward it, learning what works and what doesn't as we go.
I offer one-on-one coaching either online or in person, off-site personal intensives, and immersive retreats for select groups of participants.
To experience what coaching is like with me, schedule a complimentary session today.
How I got here
I've followed awe and my heart since heading west at the end of my freshman year of college to see if the mountains were as amazing as in magazines. That first winter, I lived and skied out of an abandoned mining shack above Telluride, Colorado. When the snow melted, I backpacked through the American West, finishing the summer on the coast of Washington State, where a fisherman picked me up and asked me to join his crew.
After going on to commercial fish in Alaska, I started and ran an outdoor equipment and clothing store in Bellingham, WA, and created a cross-country ski area near Glacier, WA.
Since then I've taught skiing throughout the American West and internationally, served as a member of the PSIA Nordic Demonstration Team for 12 years, guided bike tours, and wrote a book on how to cross-country ski that’s still in print. I managed the Stevens Pass Alpine and Snowboard School near Seattle, WA and ran a transformational adult education non-profit based in Bellinghan, WA. After 11 seasons as a private alpine ski instructor in Telluride, CO, I now teach in Switzerland.
My work as a body-based experiential coach evolved from what I've learned and experienced helping clients reach their goals and find awe every day for more than 40 years.
I'm a Certified Co-Active Coach (CPCC), but what the heck does that mean and why would you care?
What's a Life Coach? You hire a sports coach to make changes and achieve goals more quickly and with less wasted effort. A life coach, as your creative thought, strategy, and accountability partner, does the same for your life. The main difference is that a sports coach is the subject expert, while you are the expert in life coaching, since the subject is you. Coaching is hard to describe, but easy to understand once you experience it. Please contact me to set up a free sample sessions to experience more.
What's a Co-Active Coach? A co-active coach focuses on who you need to be and what you need to do to create change or reach a goal. I received my initial training and was certified by the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI). To learn more about co-active coaching and training, visit What Is Co-Active?
How do you know if coaching is for you? Effective coaching depends on a safe and caring relationship based on what both the client and the coach need and want from each other and the coaching relationship we create.
