You are in the right place
if you are an artist who is
• Lacking Self-love
• Struggling to freely express your artistic self
• Making ineffective creative and life decisions
Selecting a coach requires intuition
to know what the best program suits your needs from someone you relate to. I trained at the acclaimed Life Purpose Institute, one of the forerunners of life coach training since the 1980's. Membership in International Coach Federation (ICF), is important, so clients know I possess core competencies, maintain ethical standards, and advocate diversity, inclusion and justice.
As an artist myself, I understand the creative process, the potential blocks and self-doubt, as I’ve been in the trenches and know first hand how it prevents you from reaching goals. And along that journey of self discovery, I came across a positive spiritual understanding of how the world works and came across effective alternative healing modalities and practices. Along with my highly empathic and intuitive nature, I know the right powerful questions to ask to help you find the answers you need to be the you you want to be.
I offer a variety of services and programs. In addition to self-love coaching and classic life coaching, I also help artists create an artistic vision or statement, and am available for consulting.

Steve put me so at ease and made me extremely comfortable to open up and figure out where I am and where I’d like to go. We explored what’s getting in my way, which not only made me realize what I already having going for me, but also, and most importantly, he helped me recognize my self-worth.

Our time together was always productive and he gave me a jump start that I have so desperately needed in getting my life, not only in order, but moving forward with confidence and direction.
JANICE, LOS ANGELES
After years of corporate structure, I found it difficult to structure my days, and through a mission statement, visualization and setting weekly goals, I was able to create a new sense of structure. He also helped me recognize that I did not have to fill each day with a bunch of tasks just so I could feel as if I was accomplishing things.
TOM, SHEFFIELD, UK
I can't thank Steve enough for helping me out during lockdown. Before, I'd been feeling rather low but Steve was able to help turn it in into positive energy and put my doubts into perspective. For that i'm grateful. A royal thumbs up from a young man in England.

WHO BENEFITS FROM COACHING?
Steve chose to define his niche as Artist Coaching since his original inspiration was to help his fellow artists transition into the current and post pandemic world, but realized throughout his own journey all his creative endeavors was wrought with limiting beliefs and fears from childhood and professional traumas. Coaching helps anyone who finds themselves second guessing their abilities and finding their career not moving forward as planned and wants to approach change from the deepest level.
WHY SUCH A SMALL PRACTICE?
Because I am involved with many ventures, I only work with 12 private clients a week to not only maintain my joy of coaching, but to also provide my full attention. Webinars and video events are also available
WHAT IS COACHING?
Unlike therapy, consulting or mentoring, the coaching process helps facilitate the client's discovery of their own answers to the questions or needs they have in living the life they want. The goals set are the client's decision. The action steps towards those goals and time frame are defined by the client, while the coach provides support, feedback and defines accountability. In addition, the coach helps identify blocks and obstacles towards reaching those goals and discovers ways to move through them.
WHAT IS YOUR COACHING PROCESS?
After an initial consultation, and deciding to work together, the first session or two is focused on self exploration where the client is given tools to fill out to dig deep and figure out what makes them tick, and what's been getting in their way.
Depending on what that reveals, the next step is either Goal Setting, where we take what was discovered along with desires, and turn them into specific, realistic and achievable goals with a timeframe for completion, or begin the 7-Step Model for Change focusing on blocks and obstacles, and how to integrate the new you into your new life.
Every session from then on will be the client's decision what to work on and we discover action plans for success. Life has a way of happening so new goals can always be added as needed.
HOW SOON BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
Coaching is a cumulative process where one gets out as much as they put in. Every individual has their own pace at how they accomplish new things and the coach doesn't push, only encourage. Creating lasting empowerment doesn't happen overnight, but simply acknowledging change is needed and taking the first steps like getting a life coach can start the shift. Some may need a coach for a few months, others for several years.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Because of the economic condition for artists, I currently offer my services at a pay-what-you-can rate and is also open to barter.
