Judgment free zone here. Let's break down walls and think big. 

As a gay man, I understand what it feels like to be marginalized and hide who I am. When you put yourself out there and get a negative response, it's hard not to internalize those emotions. Words are powerful. Feeling accepted is a basic need we all have. Sometimes that need is so strong we let others decide who we are and become our own worst critic.

 

I want to help you feel safe in your skin, being your authentic self.

What's holding you back?

I believe people can change. If you're struggling to get out of bed and to work on time, it doesn't mean you're lazy. Having a string of bad relationships doesn't mean you are unloveable. It means something is holding you back. Let's identify "that something" so you can move forward and go after what you want. 

 

I've been there. I get you. I spent a good part of my life misreading situations, taking things personally, and constantly worrying about what others thought of me. I remember the moment I realized I was scared to be seen. I was 14 and walked into a convenience store where everyone turned and stared. It sounds so inconsequential – who didn't feel like that as a teenager? But, for me, it was the beginning of a long road to owning who I was. When I was able to let go of what others thought of me, I became the person I wanted to be and found my superpower in life — helping others own who they are — that's why I became a life coach.

You have to want change to make change happen. If that resonates, coaching may be exactly what inspires you to get what you're after in life, whether that's finding a better job, having a healthy relationship, or being comfortable with the way you look. I'm not here to diagnose you, and I'm not a therapist. I'm here to collaborate with you, laugh with you, hold you accountable, and help you set measurable goals at your pace.

 

My focuses include self-confidence, relationships and dating, body image, health and nutrition.
