A Bit About

About Me
 
 & My

Philosophy

Okay, let's get to the "been there, done that" stuff first.

I am a lifelong entrepreneur. I started my first company after college (UCLA) - a celebrity photography business called "Gotcha." I then began a marketing and advertising firm with a partner in Marin County, CA.  We ran that for  9 years serving clients like AutoDesk, Birkenstock and Continental Airlines. It was fun for a while, but...

My body broke under the stress of the ad business and, from my hospital bed, I decided it was time for a major life change. I jumped off the side of my life for a year. I lived in the woods of Colorado & then I was a beach bum on  the island of Grenada. I also sat in on quite a few medical school classes there.

When I came back to the States, I continued my education in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming - is also the foundation of Tony Robbins' work), and got a Master's certification. I began my coaching practice in 1992. NLP has given me an invaluable set of tools to help my clients get beyond old beliefs & on to new ways of thinking & acting that work better for them.

While I have worked with clients in the US Army, Oppenheimer, Oracle, FedEx and other big corporations, for the past five years I've focused on working with ADD-ish entrepreneurs (most are ADD-ish!). I've spent many years building the skills & strategies to help those of us whose brains are wired differently.  It's my life's work.

I am also a passionate motivational speaker. I get excited sharing ideas that open up minds!

For fun, I'm a singer-songwriter, kayaker, traveler, photographer, eclectic reader, meditator, weight lifter, improvisational comedienne, dancing fool, writer and traveler.

I am also a lifelong learner - keyboards, guitar, techie toys, giving/taking seminars, alternative medicine, mind research, NLP, & a whole lot of other cool stuff!

Mini-Philosophy

I believe that I can help just about anyone make virtually any change they want in their life - as long as they have a strong desire and are willing to take the actions to make it so.

I know that we all learn more when we're having fun. I've seen that when we can laugh at our own stuff, we gain a new and clearer perspective that gets us unstuck and ready to learn even better ways of going beyond whatever was holding us back. I get my clients to laugh as often as possible!

I think Adult ADD is a great gift and that with some tweaking with what we say to ourselves, some strategies to overcome challenges with organization & focus, and ways to develop our unique gifts - we can change the world in ways that in-the-box thinkers never will. To paraphrase Einstein, "You can't solve a problem at the level of thinking that created it." And have we got some bigtime problems to solve!

I believe in much more than this, of course.
