What People are Saying About Coaching with Jim
"A 'top shelf' personal development coach.”
Jim is a “top shelf” personal development coach who is best suited to help high functioning people. His combination of natural insight, coupled with his clinical (psychology) perspective, have enabled him to help me identify dimensions of myself that I couldn’t see for myself. [ + more ]
One thing that differentiates Jim from others is his ability to provide the right next step to move past places where I have become stuck in my own familiar patterns.
Jim has accelerated my own development by helping me see myself more accurately. He consistently works with me to identify sustainable ways to overcome my personal obstacles that seem insurmountable at the time.
If you are highly motivated for positive change, and need a true expert to help you on your journey, Jim is an excellent choice.

"Working with Jim turned out to be the best decision I ever made."
I was at a crossroads, facing great turmoil and transition in my personal life, at odds with myself, and feeling stuck in a failing marriage with an alcoholic, when I started working with Jim. It turned out to be the best decision I’ve ever made. [ + more ]
Prior to coaching, I had invested in talk therapy to assist me in resolving things, but the insights derived from that process, which were few and far between, simply were never concrete enough to utilize in any meaningful way that could enable me to effect change.
Jim not only thoughtfully guided me toward coming up with substantial, important insights and revelations, but then assisted me in putting them into action, and empowered me to do so.
The trouble I had been experiencing in my personal life was affecting other areas of my life…impacting my health, my social interactions, and my ability to perform to the best of my ability in my profession.
Likewise, the coaching work, which was initially primarily focused on the personal aspect, ended up carrying over into all aspects of my life, and resulted in benefits across the board.
Finding, developing, and embodying my core self through Jim’s guidance has made for extraordinary improvements in my life and overall well-being. Since coaching, I feel capable and confident, knowing I have all it takes to be in (and stay in) the right life for me. Jim helped me discover a path to ultimate emotional freedom.
Of course, I still experience setbacks, like anyone else...bouts of self-doubt, uncertainty, fear.
The difference now is that I recognize those feelings more promptly and more effectively, and realize they are merely passing emotions I'm experiencing, not the sum of all my parts… not me.I’m now equipped to handily address and respond to anything and everything with compassion and wisdom, using my innate abilities.
I no longer have to feel paralyzed emotionally. Instead I feel fully at peace with, and in control of, my life, now that I’m in touch with, and able to trust in, my instincts. I no longer have to settle for a life that doesn’t suit me.
Give yourself the greatest gift you ever could by coaching with Jim. Don’t settle for merely surviving… settle for nothing less than positively thriving.

"Happier, less stressed and more satisfied."
Working with Jim is a unique opportunity to be guided through a private, self-directed 360 gap analysis. Together, we unpack and analyze the strengths and personal resources that have helped spur me on to the success I enjoy. [ + more ]
In conducting Jim's comprehensive self-assessment, we also uncovered areas of opportunity for growth.
That includes both low hanging fruit on the tree of building a more fulfilling life as well as big picture, essential goals which too often go neglected in favor of procrastination, self doubt and 'good-enoughism'.
Jim has helped me to realign my focus from externally motivated goals to intrinsic values in a way where nothing was discarded, but rather appropriately shuffled and reordered for achievement and progress in all arenas.
Jim's nonjudgmental, yet unrelenting approach at chipping away at the easy excuses for not delving headfirst into authenticity allows a safe, exciting, motivating, doable space for producing real change in your life.
High level achievers, movers and shakers, and executives accustomed to being in charge will be hard pressed to encounter a coach who can truly meet them at their level—no time for BS, no manipulation or talking themselves back into their comfort zone.
Instead, Jim takes on the role of an honest reflection of his client. He's astute and skilled at truly listening for your goals and then swiftly moves toward tackling the known obstacles and helping to put in place a plan for addressing those hidden ones as well.
He does this with a keen sense of individualized, personalized focus; it's a focus on you, your style, your personality, your goals and your fears.
Over the months working with Jim, I have been able to really articulate key goals, align my trajectory to meet them efficiently, and most importantly, do so in a way that makes me happier, less stressed and more satisfied.
I have always struggled with feeling like I wasn't doing enough, not shooting high enough, not being true enough to my values. Through Jim's coaching, I've made phenomenal progress in pushing through my self-made obstacles, building new habits, and hitting my true targets.
Thank you Jim, you're an amazing coach and an even more wonderful soul.
