About

Hello and welcome! I’m so glad you’re visiting.

(If you’ve come for legal recruiting related questions, you’ve come to the right place, but at the wrong time. Unfortunately, I don’t do legal recruiting anymore. If you’re looking for a good recruiter, I’m happy to refer you to someone amazing.)

 

At one time I was a lawyer (labor and employment litigation), then I became a legal recruiter (you can still see some of the old posts on the blog), and now I coach people in happiness. Yes, really. Utilizing a variety of ancient traditions, including mindfulness, meditation, and Toltec wisdom, I teach self-awareness and emotional intelligence. Through these various modalities, I help people cultivate peace, love, joy, passion, creativity, and greater satisfaction in their lives. For a brief (not that brief) account of how I came to this work, you can read about my awakening experience here.

 

The past year on this journey has been an incredible, terrifying, and thrilling transformation out of blind fear, ego, and conditioning, and into self-love, forgiveness, acceptance, and surrender. I’ve reshaped my life to focus on authenticity, vulnerability, and true connection. I can show you how to do the same.If you’re interested in setting up individual coaching sessions (by phone or via Skype), you can reach me through any of the links on your right. I look forward to speaking to you soon!

Coaching 2

 

Since I began my apprenticeship program nearly a year ago, people have come into my life, somewhat spontaneously, seeking guidance. I work with them in a completely intuitive way – meaning there’s no structure or format to our sessions. We go wherever the conversation takes us. People share their stories, I ask questions, I share my experiences, and offer the wisdom I’ve collected that is pertinent to their concerns.

 

Through these interactions, with love and acceptance, I’m able to guide people to their own truths. Together, we take a very deep look within, and what people find is resolution, freedom, happiness, and their own passion for life. What grows within them throughout our sessions is self-love, confidence, and a strong sense of empowerment to pursue their dreams (their real dreams). What I’ve found to be true is that the desire for something different has to come from within. It is not something that can be achieved by force or obligation. If that genuine desire is present, the progress flows quickly and organically.

 

The wisdom I share isn’t something I’ve created. It doesn’t come from me, but rather it comes through me. It is a collection of ancient wisdom stripped of any religion or dogma. What I share doesn’t require you to believe in anything. On the contrary, what we endeavor to do is question and investigate your existing beliefs, to find exactly what’s limiting you.
