Humanistic Coaching and Spiritual Counseling

Is this you?

Are you going through a difficult transition such as a loss of a loved one, divorce, job change, lay-off, chronic illness or medical problem?


Are you an overworked professional in business, law, healthcare or another profession who is dealing with stress and burnout?


Do you have religious or spiritual beliefs that you like to be an important part of making your life better, or are interested in spirituality but are not sure where to start?

Are you looking for executive coaching but with a spiritual bent?

Is your quality of life - your inner life - where you want it to be?


I understand how you feel because I’ve been there. I grew up with physical and emotional difficulties and fought my way through depression and self-doubt to greater self-esteem and inner peace.

I was a highly accomplished executive and father but questioned the true meaning and purpose in my work and life.

Consequently, I have  dedicated my life to helping others to gain clarity, remove suffering,  improve the quality of their life and feel positive, strong and happy.

I specialize in working with busy professionals who are struggling with a life transition challenges and are looking for lasting, meaningful positive change, and/or people who tried traditional therapy and did not get the results they were looking for.

Spiritual Counseling

At some point, each human being evolves to asking deeper questions such as how do find happiness beyond material possessions, is there a Divine Being, what is my relationship to this Being, and how can I grow spiritually?
