Professional, Individual & Relationship Coaching

In-person or through phone calls, Jim’s coaching services helps you set goals, stay accountable, implement viable strategies, and see results.

Jim is an experienced therapist with a reputation for passion. He gives people the best tools, principles and approach for their personal challenges.

Coaching is a powerful way to realize change rapidly.  Coaching emphasizes quick change by helping you to remove road blocks, set realistic, achievable, and measurable goals, and by helping you to visualize success. Coaching can open the doors to ending procrastination, eliminating distraction, and propelling you forward.

Coaching is ideal for:

  • those who are struggling with “Who am I to think I can be successful or happy?” and those who when they have any measure of success think “What was I thinking?  I should have never put myself out here.”
  • professionals and business owners seeking to grow their skills and/or business;
  • individuals who want to overcome personal challenges and difficulties but do not want to go to the expense and time of counseling; and
  • individuals seeking to improve their relationships — everything from how to attract and meet a partner, improve your marriage relationship, and becoming a better parent.




Daring Way™

Daring Way™ strategies are used to address shame, guilt, perfectionism, self worth and self identity. Daring Way™ strives to “make the world a more loving and courageous place by helping people learn how to show up, be seen, and live brave.”

Daring Way™ was founded by Brené Brown, an author and research professor at the University of Houston, who has studied courage, vulnerability, shame, empathy, and leadership. Daring Way™ professionals have access to peer support, case consultation, the exchange of ideas, and ongoing practice development skills and tools.

The Daring Way™ groups are designed by Dr. Brené Brown, based on her research on courage, worthiness, vulnerability, and shame.

Let Jim help you translate these principles into the way you live your life in any or all of the following formats:

  • Daring Way™ 1-Day Workshop
  • Daring Way ™ 3-Day Intensives
  • Daring Way™ 8-Week Group

A Daring Way™ or Rising Strong™ group may be just what you need if you are:

  • Ready to fully embrace yourself and live a more brave and authentic life.
  • Wanting to show up and be seen more.
  • Seeking more joy and fulfillment in your life, but feel inadequate and like you are not enough.  
  • Feeling stuck and not sure you will never be enough.  
  • Wanting to overcome challenges more and rise stronger when difficulties come.  



Driving Lessons for Marriage, Parenting, and Sexual Intimacy Workshops

Most relationship workshops are well out of the price range of most people.  So, Jim developed the:

  • Driving Lessons for Marriage Workshop,
  • Driving Lessons For Parenting Workshop, and
  • Driving Lessons for Sexual Intimacy Workshop.

These workshops are full of practical, research based suggestions that people can implement immediately.

Based on the best research from Gottman, Daring Way, and other proven strategies, individuals and couples will learn in a friendly environment at a fraction of the time commitment and cost.  The average relationship workshops cost well over $500 (not including a hotel stay, food, and travel costs).

Driving Lessons Workshops cost less than dinner and a movie!  Workshops can even be hosted in your family, church, or social group to reduce even more costs.
