Tammy was a wonderful addition to the team of caregivers providing support to my father; he was recently diagnosed with stage 4 primary liver cancer and was estimated with 2-4 weeks to live. Since we’ve moved him to hospice, he’s lost strength and become very foggy. Tammy rearrranged her scheduled when we expressed fear that he may not be alive three days from now, showed up to the hospice on time, and my father - in the middle of the session and for the first time in days - opened his eyes wide and introduce himself to her. We will undoubtedly bring her back into our care circle, and can’t express our gratitude for her work enough.

She was the 2nd to reply to my need. I prefer the word coach to counselor. We don't need fixing , we need coaching on our journey.

As a personal trainer for 15 years, my career has allowed me the fortitude to meet and work with 100's of trainers. When I met Scott, I knew that he possessed the ability to become a quality trainer, because his integrity was top notch. Not only is Scott eager to help others by sharing his passion and knowledge for fitness, but he is genuinely a great guy who can wear multiple "hats" - he is a motivator, he is caring, and he is professional. Scott will help educate you and keep you accountable.

Doug and I met while I was coaching at one of the top high school cross country programs in the state of Oregon. I had an injured athlete that he spent some time working on to get him healthy. That was the beginning of a 10 year relationship with the athletes that I have coached as well as my family of athletes. Doug's ability to find the root cause of the issue and work to a solution was the best we have found. Doug's technique and effectiveness created a verb by those that he worked on. My body is not functioning the right way...I need to be "Dulaked". Doug had a great following in Portland and when he moved to Arizona one of our athlete resource possee was gone. I highly recommend Doug in his practice.

I have met Giles for 3 Shamanic Energy Work sessions and each experience has shifted me in a profound way. Giles holds sacred space for his clients to connect with the parts of themselves that are calling for healing. Through his intuitive guidance, I have been able to understand and break through blocks that I didn't know were holding me back. I am very thankful for the services that Giles has to offer and I will continue to work with him on my healing journey. Giles is also a wonderful mentor for those looking to discover their own path within this field.

I met with Michelle about an issue in my life with my career. She was extremely helpful in pinpointing the areas I needed to focus and helped to correct those. The result has been wonderful. I will go to her again when I need help. She is warm, insightful and knowledgeable.

Mike offered his coaching when I was going through a very challenging time in my life. Divorce. My life was entering new territory, I was a mess, and relations with my kids were not easy. Mike offered advice and thoughts that hit at many levels. From what good growth could come out of the mire to practical advice for being available to my kids. Mike did not sugar-coat things. He has a depth of experience and core of compassion that combine to make him an exceptional life or spiritual coach.

I cannot even put into words how much Nancy has helped me. I have known her for over 15 years and she has been a life coach for me through my toughest times and never gave up on me. She has done so much for me from helping me write papers to helping me through family struggles. She helped me quit smoking many years ago by helping me deal with my stress in healthy ways such as working out and making general healthier choices. I would highly recommend Nancy to anyone looking for a life coach, a tutor, or a personal trainer! I am now a successful professional in the dental field and I feel like I owe so much to her!

I purchased 2 sessions with Nina on Groupon and it was one of the best investments i have made. She made me feel comfortable right from the start. Even though it was only 2 sessions, i learned alot about myself and how to address the issues that brought me to her in the first place. I highly recommend Nina and her life coaching, she was truly a joy to spend time with.

I drink – consciously and comfortably. But it took a lot of awareness and thought, which I was able to achieve through Teresa’s insightful help. Alcohol played a role in my childhood, where I would see my mother drinking multiple goblets of white wine every night. I know now that she was medicating chronic depression. As I entered my forties, I found myself doing the same thing, but didn’t worry too much because “it was just a few glasses of white wine.” Then life got harder, what with life challenges, including caring for my aging parents and a brother on disability. I give myself credit for being a pretty bright bulb – I’ve got a Ph.D., a thriving business, and I studied chemical dependency and conducted substance abuse interventions with addicted individuals. It took a long time for me to realize the toll my nightly glasses of white wine were taking on my life, even when they evolved into a love for bourbon cocktails. I was slowing down, gaining weight, becoming increasingly more depressed and less interested in enjoying the world around me. I’ve never wanted to stop drinking entirely – I’ll be frank about that. But as I realized the price I was paying in terms of my own satisfaction with my life, with Teresa’s help I began to examine when I drank and why, learning that much like my mother, I was medicating stress. No longer willing to ignore my dissatisfaction with my life, I focused on what Teresa calls the “pink cloud” – the elements of life that bring fulfillment. As I worked to design a richer life, I also developed an awareness of my drinking. No longer do I unconsciously settle in with my “innocent” wine at night, or conveniently find ways to meet up with friends who like to drink. Instead, I have cut back on my stressors, introduced a lot of pleasurable activities into my life and focus on my pink cloud. Do I still drink? Yes, but very consciously. And if it goes beyond social enjoyment into using it to numb stress, I focus on self-care instead of self-medication. What am I not giving myself that leads to the desire to medicate with alcohol? What do I need to do to take very good care of myself and live in my pink cloud? Not every woman who struggles with alcohol is an alcoholic. But those of us who have the courage to look at how it impacts our life will benefit greatly from Teresa’s insights and support. Life is short and we deserve to live it well.

About

"Hi! I'm Daniel..." The first thing you should know about me is... I am not a guru. Or an exalted spiritual leader. I'm not a psychologist or psychiatrist. And I don't have a PhD in counseling either. Yet, my entire life I've felt called by something. That call is the desire and gift to help others awaken... to their own natural power to shape and direct the flow of abundance into their lives and the lives of all they touch. And the best part is... When you accept the responsibility to direct that ever present flow... You access what some call "the effortless effort". Meaning abundance flows into your life so powerfully...it would take a conscious effort to stem the flood. "Unfortunate circumstances", "personal injustices" and "negative" anything can become powerless to move you from your peace...with no more power to stop the flow of abundance than trying to block a waterfall with your hand. "Synchronicity", "Fortunate circumstances", and "positive" everything can fill your days with light and abundance flowing to you in startling, delightful, and even delicious ways. If you are hearing the call... and are searching for a compassionate, clear thinking someone to help you re-calibrate your "ears" so you can hear your own inner knowing and reconnect with your natural power...I may be able to help you. I help people... -> Reconnect with inner knowing...the guide that naturally moves you toward your own highest good and magical life -> I help wounded people understand the emotional patterns, reactivity, and relationship dynamics that cause anxiety, insecurity, conflict and lack of direction -> I help people FEEL GOOD again when they can't remember how I also help people... -> Release the flow of abundance and receive a higher quality of life, love, work via "effortless effort" -> Discover and enjoy a fulfilling and amazing life of growth and contribution -> I also help people who seem to be blocked by an invisible force holding them back from achieving their dream goals or career goals...whether those be entrepreneurial, fitness, health or otherwise. The first step is a relaxed chat over phone or skype. I call it an "Insight and Discovery Session". The session typically lasts 60 - 90 minutes. And you can put away your wallet... the session is complimentary. There is no pressure or obligation to hire me. If, at the end of our time together, we mutually feel comfortable and would like to work together, I'll help you create the appropriate coaching package to help get you where you want to go. Either way, I wish for you a life of abundance and light. Looking forward to meeting you! -- Daniel ==================================================================== Some technical "stuff" and obligatory "horn tooting" about how I came to help others... I'm a former student of the school of "hard knocks" and permanent student of life I'm certified by Robbins-Madanes Institute, Strategic Intervention, The National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Personal Trainer, Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Sports Fitness Specialist, and Performance Enhancement Specialist ( I work with mind and body since they are inextricably linked) I've coached Olympians, TV stars, Recording Artists, Rock Stars, Politicians, Business Leaders ...and they all have the same issues, hang-ups, insecurities, wrinkles, tics, hopes and fears as everyone else. Often more so. And they also have the same POWERS as everyone else does. Most often they just have figured out how to tap into that abundant flow available to all who want it For the last decade I've been a regular guest on AM Northwest here in Portland... and spent the last 3 of those as the "on-air trainer" appearing on the second Monday of every month. I had my own radio call-in show on Z-100 that was the #1 noon show and ran for 3 years straight. A gave out advice and answered live calls on air. I've been featured in, seen on, or quoted in: USA Today, AM Northwest, FOX, Z-100, ABC, The Oregonian, and Web M.D. All the best in your search. If you'd like to talk, let's connect. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: Although I love working with all sorts of challenges, my scope of practice is not medical. I'm not a psychotherapist or psychiatrist. I don't work with disorders. People who NEED a psychotherapist or psychiatrist have challenges beyond the scope of a Life Coach. If you feel that is you, please seek the help of a medical professional.

About

With twenty years of experience, I pay a lot of attention to non-verbal as well as verbal communication. This is especially useful in relationship counseling. Non-verbal communication can show sides of ourselves which we may not be aware of but others notice. The good news is that noticing a new side to oneself can lead to welcome change. New sides to oneself can lead the way into change that comes naturally. I notice the difference between change that comes naturally and change that comes with strain. The strain usually isn't sustainable, change that fits one’s nature is. I've taught conflict facilitation in Portland State University's graduate facilitation program. I've spent many years developing attitudes and skills which allow us to work through inner and outer conflict.

I make you the main focus of the sessions. There isn't a whole bunch of teaching going on, and I don't claim to be a guru. In fact, I don't really need to be. What you need in a coach is someone who is willing to listen and focus on who you are, and how you can be what you want to be in a way that makes sense to you.
