Building A Relationship Is The Same...

Whether the relationship that feels like a struggle right now is with your kids, your co-workers,employees or boss, your romantic partner or date... it's always about elements of respect, unconditional love, and how you communicate your feelings.

My personal story as a coach, and as a person, husband and father, begins with the skills of Parenting.

For me, the skills that work in our relationships with our children can be extended to all our other relationships - because parenting is the most difficult, demanding, and fraught with guilt, and "rules."

So - If you're feeling overwhelmed by the challenges of parenting, or going through a divorce, my heart goes out to you, and I’m moved to want to help.

I’ve spent many years coaching – parenting coaching, life coaching, business coaching within corporations, working with people on their careers, their businesses and their communication skills – and I’m proud of all of it.

But the most important job I’ve done in my life is that of a parent.

I’ve been blessed with a daughter who is now a young adult, and for the last 29 years, with a wife who loves and supports me – as I love and support her.

I’m clear that whatever else happens in my life professionally, it’s all about my family.

Don't get me wrong - it has taken work to get to this place of feeling comfortable as a parent and spouse.

I was 13 when my parents called my sister and I into the dining room to tell us that Dad was moving out.

As we sat around the table, I remember a couple of feelings – relief, and curiosity – relief because the fighting and bad vibes in the house were going to end; and curiosity about what life would look like going forward.

Neither of my parents were introspective people.

And so from a psychological standpoint, they were as overwhelmed and confused as my sister and I.

My mom was emotionally fragile, my dad was trying to rebuild his life, and my sister and I were left to figure it out on our own. We needed help coping, and there was none to be found.

From that place, I developed some clear ideas about what kind of parent I wanted to be – deeply connected to my children and an open, available, loving mentor, friend and guide.

It was years of therapists, workshops, books and classes before I felt ready to take on the huge job of being a parent. And I bring these ideas and skills to my clients, everyday.

While I'm not a therapist, (though I've been trained by one), I'm a certified instructor of "Aware Parenting." My MBA, and my coaching and mediation training, have helped me develop a step-by-step process, to help you develop concrete, practical strategies for navigating the rough waters of parenting.

I believe conscious parenting is the strategy for changing the world for the better.

From the bottom of my heart, I believe conscious parenting is the way to have the most profound impact on what humanity looks like in 20 years.

One connection at a time - One relationship at a time - One conversation at a time.

We parents are literally molding the future.

That’s why I developed the Parenting MBA – The Business of Successful Parenting.

To offer specific strategies and tools for building an exceptional relationship with your kid.

I've been doing this long enough to know I can't promise if you “say or do ‘this,’ everything will be wonderful.”

I come from a business background, years of study with “boots on the ground” dad experience.

What I AM offering is foundational. I get to the heart of the matter and help you build something that will last your lifetime.

I know I can help you become the parent you want to be.
