The Art of Confidence
Are you ready to...
-> Increase Confidence & Self-Trust-> Transform Insecurity-> Take Consistent Action
Where you Might Be
Your CONFIDENCE is not where you'd love it to be and it's costing you in career, romance, and what matters most. INSECURITY is running the show FAR too often and you're ready to live a life that reflects courage, purpose & love. Your SELF-TRUST is sorely lacking - making way for indecision, stagnation, avoidance & regret. ACTION is far too circumstantial. Conditions have to be just perfect because otherwise, you worry about failing and wasting time. You desire ALIGNMENT, but it never feels like a possible reality.
Bottom Line - You're ready for a change. Not just for yourself, but for the people and the work you care most about.
What if your external world reflected who you TRULY ARE internally? What might become POSSIBLE?

With the support of Michael's coaching, I am making more money and working on parts of my life that brought me anxiety just to think about. Now, I am taking more risks in the pursuit of my dream, losing weight and living a healthier life.My perception of my life has shifted dramatically. I've been given tools and greater awareness to move forward in accomplishing my goals.Before working with Michael, I had trouble identifying the deeper causes of what stopped me from pursuing my dreams. He really worked with me to clear out any mental blocks I had in the way so I could move forward quicker and with greater ease!
Youth Educator, Graphic Artist, Poet, Momma
The framework in which I approach most everything in my life, across all venues, has shifted since working with Michael."I sorta feel like if everyone I cared for was getting the kind of support that I've received through coaching with Michael that we'd all be a few steps closer to realizing a brighter and more conscientious world.
If the answers were inside of me the entire time, working with Michael has helped me to identify and understand those answers.
I'm grateful to have found my power, to have recognized my true desires, and to feel that I've got lots of forward momentum and am really on the right path for me right now. I've no doubt of the role that my coaching with Michael has played in that.
Michael can help you to fill up your proverbial toolbox and equip you with the tools you need to get yourself the life you want while supporting you in that journey.
Poet, Performer/MC, Educator
My coaching work with Michael has helped me clarify my creative goals and expose my attachment to my limitations.Michael is kind and refreshingly straightforward. I appreciate the strategic accountability that is built into coaching, and I feel supported in creating and achieving actionable steps.
Most importantly to me, Michael is a coach who can laugh with me as I navigate the inner twists and roadblocks on the road to becoming the next best version of myself. There is a lot of productive laughter during our sessions.
Founder, Move Up Tutoring
Deciding to transition from a 20-year long rewarding career as an elementary teacher was not an easy decision. I was addicted to the creative nature of the work, along with the powerful connections I had with students and their families. But the 60 hour long work weeks depleted me. My stomach and receding hairline were telling me that something had to change.
As a teacher I recognized the role that a mentor and guide could play in helping me through this emotionally charged and difficult decision. Michael was the perfect person to help me transition into a new profession and, more importantly, a new way of relating to work.
Michael has been an invaluable coach and resource for me. He is a keen strategist, thought provoker, and advocate. He masterfully knows when to use these various skills to bring out a clarity of purpose and desire that was hard to pinpoint on my own.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker & Mother
I started working with Michael almost 2 years ago with little knowledge about the world of coaching... Michael taught me to adjust mindsets and modify patterns that were undermining my previous attempts to achieve what I want in my life.Michael helped me stay accountable and committed to my goals, even when life became more complicated due to a difficult pregnancy. Without his support and guidance, it would have been easy to abandon my progress and retreat into old patterns.Michael helped me embrace my successes and celebrate what I am doing rather than dwell on previous "failures." I now have the skills to approach the things I want to do in my life with confidence and focus. I am forever grateful I made the decision to try something new and met such a wonderful coach and human being.
