Maybe you've tried coaching or therapy before, but were frustrated by a lack of action, assertiveness, empathy, or engagement by the practitioner. Your family history isn't necessarily short on trauma, nevertheless you survived and even thrived. You sense that if you could understand it all better life would improve, personally and professionally. I get it. I was a world class professional symphonic musician before becoming a personal leadership coach and therapist, and understand how to help you successfully leverage the complementary powers of attuned listening and deliberate practice. My ideal clients are high achievers searching for meaning, direction, community, support through loss, and/or renewed purpose.

I use a unique blend of self awareness tools to help you tune in to your own creative flow. We'll reduce your stress, clarify your intentions, define what success means now, and lay the groundwork for your next right steps. Equally comfortable with teams and individuals, I've been called a "team whisper" more than once. Feel free to contact me to discuss how I can help you and/or your team thrive.

Techniques I Use


  • Psychodrama External link

    I am a Board Certified Practitioner of Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy (, am qualified to train therapists in this modality, and teach Psychodrama at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR.

Issues I Treat


  • Personal Growth External link

    As a Personal Growth Specialist, I view the human condition as a giant opportunity to keep expanding awareness and exercising creativity to meet challenges. Journaling, collaging, dreamwork, I Ching, as well as targeted tools like CBT exercises can be utilized to open minds and break up outworn thought patterns. A personal growth approach can make even the most difficult times more meaningful.
