Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with some exceptional individuals. Most of them have lived successful lives studded with accomplishments and honors. Some have been successful entrepreneurs. Others are established academics or artists. Many of them have been C-Suite Executives. They all have one thing in common. At some point, they decided to seek another path. It has been my honor to have been their guide on these transformational journeys. Sometimes from one opportunity to another – sometimes from one life to another, all have been life-changing. Here are just a few examples of how they have seen our work together.

I look back on the first three months of my work with Dr. Smith with wonder. My journal reflects a journey of self-discovery so vast that I hardly recognize the person who wrote the first entries. It’s been a year now and I am happier now than I have ever been.

It’s the most amazing experience I have ever had. I needed to find a new path. A friend recommended Dr. Smith. What was most amazing was the wisdom and perception that he brought. New vistas have opened up and, as a result, a new chapter in my life. There\’s no way that I could put a value on what he has contributed to my life.”
