How I Can Help
I coach committed professionals who require direction in either their work or personal life. I lovingly help my clients find their true purpose with honesty, and champion the decisions they make.
I wasn't sure if life coaching was for me, but Matt's energy and insights in our sessions left me motivated and excited about what's next. Matt is a great listener and is very in tune with the way you express yourself. As we talked on Skype, several times he pointed out when my inflection changed which indicated a change in mood and mindset as I talked about different life topics. You immediately get the sense that Matt is dedicated to his craft and is truly passionate about helping others. I'll continue to recommend Matt to my friends whenever the topic of self improvement or life change comes up.
Web Consultant, Vancouver, BC.
Matt brings a big heart, keen intuition, and insightful questions to his coaching. I appreciate how well he balances kindness, directness, curiosity, and a great sense of humor. Matt creates a safe space for exploring meaty issues and perplexing challenges, and I always walk away from our conversations with some valuable nugget: a shift in my thinking, a readiness to address a particular obstacle, or an expanded confidence in my own capacity.
Non-Profit Management Consultant, Seattle, WA.
The life coaching is great! Matt is a very positive person, which is infectious, and I could feel the passion for coaching in his voice. Matt really pays attention to small details and was able to identify goals and passions that I'd not actually stated. Bringing my awareness to the root of my roadblocks has helped me tremendously. Matt's approach and demeanor are friendly and reassuring, making me feel we had developed a rapport in the first few minutes of our telephone call. Matt was able to bring things back to the root of the issue and work through them with encouragement. I would highly recommend Matt as an excellent life coach!
