    Last year, Trent helped my husband Trevor and I as we worked through some communication concerns in advance of our wedding. Trent helped us identify unhealthy patterns in our communication styles. As a result of Trent's coaching, Trevor and I were able to identify workable solutions, and a year later, we continue to see the benefits of incorporating those lessons. In fact, the improved communication we developed after working with Trent has further strengthened our relationship, and it's definitely helping us as we move forward in our married life together. Thank you Trent :-)

    Trent is very still, very aware, patient and incisive. He supports you in a way that's honest and kind. Highly recommend!

About this pro

My approach works on the hub to fix the whole wheel. Underlying the everyday challenges we all face from time to time on the 'rim' of our life wheel is a deeper un-ease at the 'hub.' By attending to the hub -- what some might call "existential" or "spiritual" concerns -- my clients benefit by working through their present struggles while also enjoying unexpected positive results all around their life wheel. I love people. I love the process of transformation. I love witnessing, time and again, how courageously meeting suffering yields something surprising and beautiful at a new level. It's our birthright. It's our inborn nature. It's our common destiny. I take a holistic approach to life and relationship coaching. Integrating mind-heart-body is key to success and ease, no matter what the circumstances. Among other coaching tools, I use the Enneagram. The Enneagram is an ancient wisdom technology used today in hundreds of businesses and spiritual organizations to foster psychological health, communication flow, and spiritual growth. I lead seminars and facilitate workshops about the Enneagram personality styles. I am passionate about its power to bring positive change.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I try to offer a sliding scale whenever possible so that clients can select pricing based on an earnest ability to pay. I'm surprised to find clients who compensate me above my sliding scale because they find so much value from coaching.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I start with a consultation session by phone, over the internet, or in person. We can quickly discern whether we are a good fit. Once a relationship is established, we can decide how best to work together from there. Coaching is client-directed. It is the client's time and work. I aspire to be a trusted partner, supporter, and encourager. The client's successes and joys are my successes and joys.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I am a Certified Professional with the International Enneagram Association. I hold a masters degree in Buddhist Studies from the Graduate Theological Union and a Certificate in Buddhist Chaplaincy from the Institute of Buddhist Studies. Years of a rigorous spiritual practice in various Buddhist traditions has provided much wisdom to share from personal experience. I am also an interfaith chaplain and Chaplain Trainer at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, where I provide compassionate care to people in all states of difficulty and grief. I am ordained Buddhist Dharma Leader in lineage of Anam Thubten and an ordained minister of the Metropolitan Community Church, a progressive denomination celebrating queer spirituality. All of my coaching work is open and affirming, and does not depend upon any particular faith background. Finally, I am an attorney with over 15 years of experience working with families in conflict -- mostly wills, trusts, and probate where family drama can get very heated! Drawing on my work as an attorney and mediator, I offer sensitive, holistic conflict resolution.
