My approach to life-coaching is to look at each person as a individual and to maximize one's strengths to achieve personal professional goals. I assist individuals in transforming what may be viewed as a deficit by mainstream society into an asset. It's all about thinking outside the box. This approach comes from my psychology background, intersected with my personal philosophy: situations, goals, and obstacles are puzzles to be solved rather than crimes to be punished.

In my 15+ years as professor, advocate, and clinician, I mentored and provided coaching services to over 1000 individuals across disciplines and settings, including undergraduate and graduate education, disability policy, parenting, independent living, performance enhancement, and leadership development.
