Michael D. 

Academic, Life & Parent Coach

Ever since I started to seriously ponder the answer to the question, “What do I want to be when I grow up?”, I knew it would have to be something that involves working with people. The follow-up question was, “In what way?”. That’s when I realized that I wanted to dedicate myself to helping others, and coaching offered me the perfect opportunity to do just that.  

As a coach, I strive to understand your part of the story, and to form a relationship based on trust. For me, trust is what paves the road we will walk together toward achieving your goals. Finding solutions for life’s challenges is only possible in a safe space, where you can feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings, and that is something I make sure every client of mine has.
