Sometimes it is especially important to understand and work through a process with someone who does not bring their own agenda. I provide special value when the process may involve interpersonal conflict, misunderstandings, and other difficulties in working constructively together.

Sometimes you may want to “think out loud,” work through some scenarios, or get advice about a problem or opportunity from someone who does not have a biased perspective. This is when an executive coach can help.

The metaphor “coach” aptly describes the relationship that evolves between a leader and coach, which is similar to the relationship between a top-flight athlete and his or her coach. The focus is on what will help you excel.

I have been providing counseling and psychotherapy, coaching, and consulting for over 35 years. My clients have included CEOs and presidents, board officers, senior managers, sole proprietors, front-line workers, students, faculty, and people from all walks of life.

Having worked intimately with individuals, teams, and organizations to effect positive change, I have a thorough understanding of how to help people identify, modify, and achieve their goals. I know a “cookie-cutter approach” is not sufficient, so I customize my work to suit the individuals and the groups. My systems perspective recognizes the important interrelationships to consider when change is desired.

I graduated from Allegheny College with a B.A. in psychology, then served as a Special Agent in the U.S. Army. At Syracuse University I earned my M.A. in personnel administration and my Ph.D. in counseling. My doctoral research examined the effectiveness of skills training programs.
