The Artists’ Journey

Life itself is the first, the greatest of the arts- and for it all other arts are but preparation. We are here for 2 reasons:


To create


To relate.


The better we relate to the world around us, free of judgement and desire of outcome, the more equipped we will be to create the life we want…and deserve.


We are all artists. Whether you know it or not. Your life is your art- your masterpiece. Let’s start painting. I will help you create your masterpiece…everyday.


What is your song? 


What is your poetry?


We will find the things that are blocking you that you are not even aware of. That will allow you to access those parts of you that are your greatest gifts. You may not see how they will fit into your life now, but room will be made- because they will be unstoppable.

WHY DO PEOPLE HIRE ME AS A COACH?

I have had the artists journey. From being on Broadway to performing at The Grand Ole Opry, to writing musicals and jingles, to performing for over 100,000 fans in Inner Mongolia or journeying through India, Tibet, Africa and Russia, my life has been courageous and varied. I learned to love my failures as much as my successes and found them to be equally fulfilling. By traveling the world and engaging in different cultures, I have a deeper understanding of what makes life rewarding- from Eastern and western perspectives. I will meet you where you are and offer radical perspectives on your life and art.


By studying acting with Stella Adler, I gained understanding of character development and motivations. We are just actors on the world stage…What is your unique part to play? We will find your unique voice— because everyone else’s is taken!


As a songwriter and playwright, I have spent my life feeling, understanding and telling stories. Let me help you to tell your story.

WHAT IS LIFE COACHING?

Coaching is a powerful, ongoing relationship that helps you focus and realize your visions and goals.  I will help you acquire the tools and support to remove obstacles in order to facilitate change.  You will explore fresh ways of being in this world, as you release old habits and conditioned reactions that have stopped working for you.

HOW LIFE COACHING DIFFERS FROM THERAPY

A therapist traditionally explores issues such as family of origin and deep emotional trauma in order to unravel particular symptoms and behaviors. Therapy involves identifying issues from the past that are creating problems in one’s life, preventing forward motion. If I feel therapy would be more appropriate, I will refer you to my associate Benjamin Holmes, one of the best in the field.

WHAT IS A TYPICAL COACHING SESSION LIKE?

You can set the agenda for the session- or we can go free form and see where it leads us.
We can meet at my office, go out for coffee, wander through the woods, wherever you feel most comfortable and engaged.
We can also meet over zoom or the phone.
