Private and Efficient Coaching

I’ve spent my career of more than 15 years in psychotherapy and emotional leadership-coaching teaching others how to improve and develop Self-Leadership—a way of tapping into the brain’s already existing capacity to feel calm, centered, clear, and confident—even in the middle of chaotic or highly stressful situations.

My work follows a protocol similar to ones used by the U.S. Marines and professional sports teams to maximize mental resiliency and prevent or heal emotional burn-out and psychological trauma.

I’m also a fully licensed mental health clinician (non-prescribing) that is capable of offering insight and strategy to address emotional issues that you want more mastery over.

I’m a national speaker and author on the subject of stress-reduction, mindfulness, and marriage improvement.

My areas of expertise include[*]:  

  • Transforming anger into productive energy for success
  • Living free from fear, panic, or anxiety attacks
  • Learning best habits to live free of depression
  • De-escalating relationship conflict
  • Reconciliation and healing from infidelity or separation
  • Ending negativity and power struggles in your relationship
  • Restoring a healthy sex life and creating essential intimacy habits
  • Finding peace in post-partum family life
  • Emotional-strength conditioning for new moms (or dads) to restore confidence and balance

How it works: The secret to successfully putting anger in it’s place

I commonly hear someone say, “I need help with anger management.” But trying to control your anger is a gross misunderstanding of how emotional regulation works in the brain.

Your body has only two core physiological modes that it swings between: It’s either in a state of arousal (narrowing focus and increasing feelings of stress) or relaxation (widening focus, decreasing feelings of stress).

If you get taken over by anger, it’s not because you lost control. That’s how it looks on the outside. But on the inside your body and mind is feverishly trying to take control, like a firefighter trying desperately trying to quell an inferno. Your heart-rate and blood-pressure spike, and so-called “fight” hormones are dumped into your bloodstream.

Therefore, the coaching work we can do together will show you how to find and easily turn on your body’s natural relaxation reflex. It has to be a reflex and not a task you consciously think about, much like the muscle memory of your golf swing or unblinking rhythm of a guitarist.

Without added stress or effort, I’ll help you put your focus automatically inside the zone of your highest response-ability—the ability to be informed by your emotions instead of being driven by them.

When you realize how quickly and how big this inner zone of “relaxed response” can grow, you’ll have the patience and poise to act decisively and wisely around highly stressful situations or people—without the wake of collateral damage anger usually creates.

Here’s a few outcomes typical from my coaching:

  • Boost confidence and efficiency in your mental habits to be a more successful leader
  • Improve emotional regulation
  • Be more patient and organized to achieve your long-term goals
  • Be less susceptible to costly distraction or manipulation by others
  • Read emotions better in others
  • Lead more from your core values to attract positive people and positive results instead of defending against attacks and damage control

[*] All off-site consultation I provide is considered “coaching” and is technically not psychotherapy or counseling. Some circumstances may require referral to a local treatment provider and I can help coordinate and facilitate this, if necessary.

Our fees are between $200-$400 for 50 minutes, depending on your counselor. We do not accept insurance, meaning we are not "in-network" with any health plans.
However, many of our clients submit claims to their out-of-network health insurance and receive 40-60% reimbursement.
