  • Client Testimonials


    Licensed Clinical Social Worker

    "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."


    Poet, Performer, and Youthworker


    "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."


    Youth Worker, Graphic Artist, Poet

    "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. "

    Sliding Scale broken into Financially Accessible Tiers:

    • $225/month if you are financially flourishing

    • $150/month if you are financially stable

    • $125/month if you are living month-to-month

    • $75/month if you are in a significant hardship

      You get 13+ hours of real-time training and coaching, plus support by text, email, and in the Slack forum. I’m a Professionally Certified Coach, with over 700 hours of coaching experience as well as a 7-year career in education as a counselor, while holding an additional teaching certification in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. This program would cost between $1,950-$4,225 if done 1-on-1. With the group format, I can offer the course at a fraction of that cost while still earning enough to continue to expand the program in order to serve more Agents of Impact. Please make sure to choose the Tier that is a stretch but not a hardship :-).

  • Coach Michael

    Michael has coached clients residing on 6 continents, supporting them to cultivate the inherent creativity, passion, and dedication every individual has for that which is meaningful to them. He refuses to coach people from Antartica though...

    Experience Matters


    - PCC (Professional Coaching Certification) with over 700 hundred hours coaching individuals and groups, and a teaching certification in Neuro-linguistic Programming.


    - MA in school counseling, and a 7-year career in youth work as both teacher and counselor.


    - A year+ in EdTech, coaching over 75 students to make the jump into the tech industry.


    Purpose Matters...

    I was the 'red card everyday kid' through elementary school. It crushed my self-esteem until I ended up with this teacher who treated me differently in third grade. She was energetic and kind and cared about her work and her students.


    Twenty-five years later.... While leading a workshop for 50+ educators, I spied the teacher who changed my trajectory sitting in the front row. The teacher who showed me compassion, who gave me a glimpse of empowerment, who allowed my creativity to flourish.

    It came full circle--she helped me and now I get to help others. That's the power of youth work. That's how lives are changed.
