About Essence & sovereignty

I help creatives to be more organized and organizations to be more creative. Some people call this coaching. All of my coaching comes from one place, my own essence. My coach training is rooted in the belief that our ultimate goal is to live a life of self-rule which comes from our true self. My coaching honors the essence of my clients, and support of their sovereignty.

My process is very structered and very spontaneous. Coaching is an intirguing blend of skills that apply the best of coach training and professional development, essential to earning credentials with the confidence to coach with out a script, going deep, using play, and provoking novel approaches to help the client wake up to his / her essence and personal power. Coaching has magical moments, that is what got me into coaching in the first place. The personal transformations that I witness keep me engaged.


I do what I do, to contribute what I can, to the uncovering of the human soul that has retreated from trauma and wounds, waiting for its “hero” to rise up and reclaim its source of power and meaning in life.

I value the willingness?of clients to be vulnerable. From that place of vulnerability the client is able to accept a new awareness about themselves. Awareness is key to all transformational?changes. Being a partner, with the client, charting new pathways toward self fulfillment, is what sustains me as a coach. I love watching the personal limits to growth transform?into the building blocks for success.


I value human potential. I believe that dialgoue with the obstructions that prevent forward movement in our lives brings our potential more in focus. As we understand who we are, at our essence, we naturally find our way and understand how to bring our aspirations in alighment with our daily living. As we do this, the meaning in our lives stands out, in contrast to those moments of frustation and confusion. With out the confusion meaning hides in the shaddows of our habits and limiting beliefs.?
