About me

As a 22 year old, I was in a nearly deadly car accident in 1989.  A severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) was the life changing result of the accident.  Rehab "experts" and doctors told my girlfriend to get out of the relationship ASAP, and they told my parents that I would not be able to pass one community college class; concluding that I should just be sent to a service home for the rest of my life.


Not only did I pass the community college class, but I stuck to my studies long enough to earn all the credits required for an undergraduate degree at Duquesne University.  I did this while living at my parents, and my girlfriend stuck with me in the most difficult years of my life.


We got married, had some children, and I wrote a book to aid others who have survived a TBI (Being-Here, 2021).  Then, Grand Canyon University online graduate school was attended.  After earning the requirements to get certified to be a Life Coach in Arizona (2020), I continued my education until recieving a Master of the Science -- Psychology with a Emphasis in Life Coaching (2021).


From what I learned in the study of professional journal articles due to my studies, Being-Here (2021), and trying to figure out more about what rehab professionals were saying, I have become knowledgable about a lot of information that helps me coach the disabled.  Graduate school was centered on the coaching of those who did not have a disability.  Most of my clients are not disabled, but I am unusually prepared to coach the disabled.  This can be said due to the positive reviews the disabled and non-disabled clients have given me.

Coaching with me

RESULTS & GOALS

The results or goals of my coaching is as varied as the type of people I have and will colach.  Because of the method I use when coaching, the results or goals are usually the exact result or goal as planned initially, but upon occassion, the goals are changed due to discoveries found out about the client or the client's original goal.  


The discoveries spoken about above can range from something required to achieve the goal being beyond the client's abilities to an alternative goal being investigated and found to be more appealing of a goal than the original. When something is found to be beyond the client's abilities, we talk about what can be done to achieve that ability, what can be done innstead of that ability, or if the goal is in need of being altered.  It is interfesting that when these alterations become a necessity, goal achievement seems to become a happier event than they uisually are found to be.  Goal achievement, whether or not the road to it is altered during the goal reaching process, is a happy, relieving, or satisfiting location.

HOW I LIKE TO COACH

The way I coach involves getting to know my clients and their goal(s) while they become familar with me.  This makes it so there is less of a chance that either one us interprets the other's words incorrectly.  Then we construct a "road map."  Once a "road map" is made, the client starts to travel down the road between our mewetings, and our meetings begin by talking about the last week, and any potental difficulties.  Then, we talk about the plans for the road map plans for the next week.  Using a road map, and having plans on what needs to be done each week does things like make the goal not achieved because of distractions.

PRIVATE COACHING

The main form of Life Coaching I do is goal oriented, and is done with a road map.


A goal oriented life coaching which is based on an Existential Phenomenological Problem Solving Approach (EPPSA) was put into writing originally for the second edition of Being-Here (2018).  EPPSA is a more developed and specific form of building a standard life coaching "road map."


When working with a disabled client, there are quite a few things brought into the building of a roadmap.  Different therapies and additional roads are needed to be added, and some are not even discovered to be needed until the traveling on the road map has begun.


There always is the potential that a section of the road map is discovered to be impossible for the client to travel on because of something involving a disability shows itself to do something negative nobody had even imagined.


The EPPSA includes the process of examining and getting every involved part of the client's body ready to be used on the road map ahead.  Nevertheless, there often is the need to work on many previously unpercieved deficits when traveling down an EPPSA road map.


Contribuing to making someone's realm of abilities grow can be a challenge.  Sometimes it does not work out the way it was initially planned.  So, the situation needs to be examined for alternative approaches.  As it says in the pages of Being-Here (2021), no matter what, you must "keep on, keepin' on!"

The Third Edition of Being-Here (2021) was only found to be a necessity because the previous editions were released under a pen name, and to be taken seriously on a professional level, writings are not written under a pen name.

PROFESSIONAL AND LIFE EXPERIENCE

As a survivor of a severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), I have faced a lot of goals which the professionals felt I had absolutely no chance of accomplishing; saying that I should not even try because of the affect failure would have on my self esteem. Using the goal setting method they taught me, I achieved.  This experience gave me the opportunity to learn the importance of goals, and the fact that the bigger the goal, the more time there is to get distracted or give up.


A professional, whether negative or positive, does not know who you are and what is inside or you, either.  In fact, other than you memories and desires, you do not even know what is inside of you.  With the statement, "There is only one way to find out," there is the need to say any goal not obtained is not the fault of anyone in your support system, such as your Life Coach.


That being said, no more negative thoughts can include working with me as your Life Coach!  We have to keep moving forward, and move toward your needs, desires and goals.  If your goal is important and looks like it might be difficult to achieve, you could not have picked a better Life Coach.  I know how achieving those goals feels, and I want you to feel it too!
