About

Who am I?

I am a pastor, spiritual director, and an ICF non-directive coach. I seek to help people find clarity. While I have helped congregants and others through preaching and teaching, I find non-directive coaching an effective means to help individuals create action plans which move them forward and toward their goals.

Non-directive coaching helps clients find focus, determine what they really want, and how they might get there. You are the expert of your life. The coach does not tell you what to do. The coach's role is to help you think through what you really want and create actionable steps to get there. Coaching helps individuals move from where they are to where they want to be.

I can help you understand what you really want, discover "sticking points", see options, create action plans, and move forward. I am an ICF trained coach working toward my accreditation. Coaching will help you will find clarity, direction, and a plan.

This website is an attempt to create a community around the pursuit of purpose, moving into the future with confidence, and living into our unique and communal calling of God. I hope this will be a community focused on helping one another move forward, becoming all God has create us to be.
