WHAT I DO PROFESSIONALLY
I am an author, blogger, writer, thinking-partner, individual/organizational coach, and an advocate for broadening the reach of holistic, inclusive ‘spirituality’, vitality, and wellness into our daily lives, our families, our organizations, our communities, and our planet.
MY PROFESSIONAL APPROACH
I believe that the path of ‘spiritual’ wholeness for individuals, families, and organizations must be expansive, experiential, creative, thoughtful, and sustainable. Caring for, about, and with people (within and outside formal organizations and family systems) is concerned with what it means to be truly human, purposeful, engaged, interconnected, and fulfilled in our shared journeys… of ‘Being’ together.

MY ORGANIZATIONAL WORK
