Would you like to break out of the box?

Are you feeling the desire to move forward with new, freer choices? Are you curious about your personality's strengths and blind spots?

Like everyone else, you developed a box of habitual patterns as a child that helped you cope, yet narrowed your worldview.  


In My Blogs on the right you'll find practical suggestions. If you'd like to break free of limiting beliefs, resolve immediate problems, and experience creative shifts in perspective, partner with me. I bring more than 30 years' experience as an OD consultant, leadership coach, and Enneagram coach (click here for payment and contact information)

Welcome back to former clients. New clients, please confirm an introductory session with me by email before making payment.

How I Work with Clients

We engage in direct, truthful, and open conversations and collaborate to make the coaching relationship beneficial for both of us. You bring topics for discussion, develop your self-observation skills, and experiment with new behaviors between sessions (see summary below of Awareness, Watching, and Experimenting). I help facilitate the changes you desire.

Our approach is positive and we observe together what you say and do, in and between sessions, without judgment. If you don’t follow through on between-session plans, we discuss what stopped you or what else you did that worked better for you. When one approach doesn't work, we co-create something else. If you’re not receiving what you want from the coaching relationship, you tell me and we agree on how to make our work together as powerful as possible.

You prepay all sessions by 6 pm Eastern the day before we’re to talk. However, if you need to cancel, you can do so right up to the scheduled hour (on occasion I may need to do the same). In that case, your prepayment is extended to the rescheduled time. (I'm in the U.S. Eastern time zone, so please calculate our time difference and request appointments in my time.)

A.W.E. Three-Step Change Process
  1. Awareness of your unique patterns of motivation and behavior.
If you'd been hypnotized in a nightclub act to do something silly afterward at the hypnotist's command, would you then ask, "Why am I clucking like a chicken?" No. You volunteered to let someone make strong suggestions about your behavior. As a child you were even more suggestible. Read more...
  1. Watching, without judgment, how those patterns operate.
Instead of backing away from an aspect of yourself you don't like, get to know that troubling part and see what there is to learn. Read more...
  1. Experimenting with pattern breaking to interrupt patterns and invite transpersonal change.
When you allow yourself to fully experience your typical reactions, you'll discover a new meaning for the baseball phrase, sweet spot. Read more...
