My promise is to support you to engage with and overcome the obstacles on your path to success, no matter what “success” means to you
As a young man, I was standing in the hallowed halls of Stanford University on a dark winter’s morning when I hit my first wall.
I was attending Stanford because it was my family’s alma mater. My parents had high hopes for me becoming a doctor, attorney or businessman to carry on the family tradition of success.
In that moment, though, I knew I could no longer live their dream. It wasn’t working for me to follow a path that was not mine.
Instead of turning right into my organic chemistry classroom, I turned left and exited the building into an unknown future.
I never went back.
My soul was longing for me to make a difference in how humans engaged with difficult emotional issues. My sister’s suicide was a wakeup call that led me to the work of my heart. Helping people face and overcome suffering so they could find peace within themselves and engage fully with the world.
I became licensed as a Marriage & Family therapist and worked hard helping people in this way for many years. Eventually though, I knew something was missing for me in this work.
I believe we are all called to continually expand into our highest selves, to have a meaningful impact in the world. I wanted to help people achieve that. I learned about life coaching and became certified as a Co-Active Coach.
I worked for years to integrate the two modalities into an offer that helps people face and heal from emotional pain and then move forward into a purposeful life.
On a personal level, I found I needed to heal myself in order to help others. I went on a spiritual quest that has included Native American ceremonies, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Buddhism and New Though spirituality.
I also did a lot of relationship and emotional healing work to learn to manage my own pain and emotional reactivity.
To put it simply, I’ve learned much about how to support and guide others on the journey of the soul.
When Kat and I landed on the idea and philosophy of Soul Driven Success, I knew I had discovered the focus of my legacy work: to guide people in the way I had been guided… to be successful at a business that has a positive impact, a business that inhabits soul driven success
