Throughout my life is was interested in complex processes and in people. I took apart what everyone believed cannot be opened and separated and I integrated so much that appeared to be incompatible and would never fit together. This practice taught me so much in the diverse fields I worked in digital and analog media, in software development and marketing, with large organizations like Apple and Novartis, and very small start-ups. I worked with artists and librarians, with engineers and bureaucrats. My office was in a Silicon Valley garage next to lathe, in a Palais in Paris, on the beach in Santa Monica, and in the Vienna Imperial Castle next to a nice 16th century library. As a digital media pioneer, I was always at the forefront of technology and yet my work was always about people. People with needs and desires, often stuck in their ways. Working with entrepreneurs in the Silicon Valley led me to coaching as a way to best support their needs. I got certified as Integral Coach®, a methodology that perceives the client as unique human, supporting development on all aspects of being. I am also certified by the International Coach Federation the largest global coaching certification authority. Currently I study Aletheia coaching that further deepens the developmental approach.My Zen practice of over 30 years taught me the importance of compassion, deeply listening and how mindfulness changes the way we interact with others, my teenage daughter teaches me that many things are not the way we perceive them.
People have always come to me for advice. Rather than giving advice, I coach them to find the answer within themselves. And yes, it is a uniquely satisfying practice. Coaching also allows me to work with people I can support and gives me the opportunity to integrate my wide range of interests and expertise in art and tech with a deeply spiritual effort.
I believe experiencing life every day to the fullest, being successful and happy depends on your ability to accept things as they are and develop resilience by recognizing that.My coaching is the unique support for you to develop your authentic voice and find your own path. It is not a drill towards accountability. You already have all the answers - I just support you in finding them and developing long-term excellency.The answers to questions like "how to be a more effective leader", "a more successful entrepreneur", "more connected to my partner and my family" are always deeper and closer to your own heart. It's not just about work or life, it's about you.Coaching is a developmental process based on mutual trust. It requires full engagement by the client and much like training in the gym, it requires commitment and time. I typically work with my clients six to nine months, a time frame that allows for a deeper development. I offer brief engagements with just a few sessions to review a specific issue.

We feel stuck – life could be better, different. As certified Integral Coach® I work with executives and professionals asking themselves “what’s next for me?” and “why am I doing all this?” There is no quick-fix and self-improvement programs create more pain and suffering as we never seem to get to reach the goal. I am deeply listening to my client to understand and sense how life is for them and to jointly create a program for long-term excellence and a deeper sense of living in the present.
