I completed my coaching training and certification in 2008 through the Life Purpose Institute, based in San Diego. This certification is recognized and accredited by the International Coaching Federation. I currently have a private coaching practice based in southern Oregon, and frequently coach clients from around the country as well by phone or Skype. My undergraduate degree from Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo, was in 1989, and my Master’s of Divinity Degree from Princeton Theological Seminar was in 1996.
Before moving to Oregon, I served for ten years as the Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Gridley, California, where I worked with couples of all ages and led many engaged couples through premarital counseling. I’ve led marriage workshops and have written the workbook Happily Ever After? Why Couples Plateau After Marriage and How to Get Unstuck.
