Below is a sample of some of what Steve's clients
have to say about the quality coaching and guidance they recieved.
"As a result of Steve's guidance, direction and "exercises,"
I have effected a major change in my outlook and self-image. He
has been extremely effective, not only as a good listener, which
is worth his fee in and of itself, but with suggestions and thought-provoking
questions that have opened my eyes and my mind and enabled me to
take charge of my life.
The changes that Steve has helped me make in my outlook and self-image
are now enabling me to make necessary changes in my career and modifications
in my lifestyle. I heartily recommend Steve and his coaching program
for anyone who would like to improve his or her personal level of
satisfaction with life."

"Although I was listening to tapes and reading self-help books
galore, I needed a live person to support me. After several sessions
with Steve and some pretty involved homework, I was able to get
a better picture of what I needed to move forward. I began to reclaim
my value in the work place by understanding that I was talented,
unique, balanced, and special. Steve really listened to me, affirmed
me every step of the way, helping me see my fears as obstacles not
death sentences. I began to feel comfortable enough to take a few
chances (after all, I was NOT alone, I had a coach!). Within one
month, I found a new job in a nearby town that I have always dreamed
of living near. I have all the benefits imaginable and am truly
respected by my co-workers. My professional life is better than
ever and I feel hope for the first time in five years! I have referred
him to several friends and those that chose to work with him are
so very grateful. Steve's intense stick-with-it, caring approach
is invaluable. He is a true friend and a valuable resource."
"As a single working mother in a demanding executive career,
I decided I needed someone to listen to me, to provide me with feedback,
to confront me when I was off course, and to offer quick insight
and wisdom when mine were failing me. I know I didn't need a therapist,
but I needed a guide. That's when I found Steve and coaching. I
had been directing a support services program at our local college
for four years. I was very frustrated with the college leadership.
I decided that I couldn't stand it anymore and instead of complaining
like everyone else was, I decided to do something about it. Four
years later, after 10 hours of week working with the college President
and two hours a week coaching from Steve, the college had its' first
shared governance structure. I had learned the art of negotiation
and facilitation, and I felt strong and confident in my skills.
I contribute this personal development journey to my smart idea
of hiring a Guide and Coach. Steve's style and philosophy appeals
to me because, as a foundation to all of his skills, he is a spiritual
warrior. I asked him to "carefront" me whenever I was heading off
the integrity track. Steve has a keen mind with a strong ethical
sense. He continually demands the best from me and challenges my
thinking and actions. Sometimes I would just sit in a heap and cry.
With understanding, he would help me to get back on my feet and
try a different way, or to let go of the issue. During these same
years I had a major personal issue I had to deal with...a dying
mother. He always helped me to get my priorities straight. I call
Steve "my coach for all seasons and for all reasons!"
With gratitude and appreciation,

"For thirty-three years I struggled with my existence. I allowed
myself to be molded and formed, poked and prodded, into a reality
I did not recognize. As a result of being coached I now live for
me, not for what others expect or want from me. In meeting my own
needs, I give freely and lovingly to others. Working with Steve
has enabled me to reach potential I didn't know existed. Steve is
unconditionally loving and supportive of my growth and helps me
achieve insight and understanding into my life and the unifying
forces that exist in the universe. My life has irrevocably changed
for the better and I face a future filled with joy and contentment
because it is the life I chose to live. My ongoing process of transformation
is filled with a rewarding inheritance-a life I am in charge of,
that I find fulfilling and enriching. I'm making my dreams a reality.
Steve, I want you to know how much I appreciate you and what you've
helped me accomplish. Those challenges that we all face have sometimes
felt overwhelming and insurmountable. Thank you for your continued
dedication, support, and participation in my life, for always believing
in me and for showing me the way to bliss."
