In 2009, I started a coaching practice in order to serve those who want to uncover personal potential and develop their leadership and emotional intelligence using brain-based principles and knowledge of psychological type.

What I can do for you:

I combine decades of work in the area of brain injury rehabilitation with newly discovered concepts in brain and personality science to clarify goals, increase motivation, and follow-through on personal objectives. I work with clients locally in Minnesota, around the United States, and throughout the world, crafting one-on-one sessions, or customizing workshops, webinars and seminars for whole organizations. I conduct these in person, over the phone, by email, or via Skype/other internet platform.
