I received my Professional Co-Active Coach Certification in 1996, from the Coaches Training Institute in San Rafael, California.  I have been coaching individuals, couples, executives and entrepreneurs for the past 18 years. My corporate coaching clients have included Cushman Wakefield, Inc., THQ, Inc., Pfizer, Inc., Microsoft, Inc., DB Marketing Technologies, Inc., PolicyLink, Inc., and The Foundation for California Community Colleges, Inc.

Before coaching I had a long career in Higher Education Administration, at U.C., Berkeley, and my last 6 years at JFK University, in Orinda, CA, where I was the Administrative Director for the Graduate School for Holistic Studies. I also co-owned and operated two successful small businesses in San Francisco; the San Francisco Roommate Referral Service and the Avenue Ballroom.

My Teachers

I have been engaged in transformational work my entire adult life.  I am a spiritual seeker and student of perennial philosophy.  My practice is the study and living of A Course in Miracles, and my teacher is Dr. Kenneth Wapnick.  My coaching is also informed by many teachers I have studied, especially Lao Tsu, Chogyam Trungpa, Krushnamurti, and others. I have worked with 12 Step recovery  programs, the Landmark Forum, John Bradshaw, Stephen Levine, Byron Katie and “The Work,” Gabriela Roth and Robin Winn.   I am also experienced in theoretical physicist, David Bohm’s, Dialogue Process, a revolutionary method of group communication based upon the teachings of Krishnamurti, and in The Untraining, a provocative and compassionate approach to becoming better allies for equality and social justice.

I have a body of published articles and I lead a variety of workshops and teleclasses.  I am also available for speaking engagements and I help create and/or perform non-demoninational weddings and sacred ceremonies.
