I believe in the unity of the whole person. Our thoughts affect our emotions; our emotions affect our bodies; and our environment affects all three. Because of this, I coach clients from a holistic approach. In our sessions, we will 1) Work together to discover your goals; 2) Use your own insight into your emotional, physical, and mental awareness to create an action plan; and 3) Address roadblocks you may find on your way. As a coach, I am approachable, detail-oriented, and adaptable. My goal is to create a space where you feel comfortable and confident in envisioning your goals, and then to help you discern your path to those goals.
I came to coaching through an experience of massive change and upheaval in my own life. I came out as a transgender man in 2013, after years of burying that sense of my self and conforming to social and religious pressure. My decision to come out as transgender and to socially and medically transition was an incredible turning point in my life. For the first time, I was able to experience and express my authentic self. As a coach, I have a unique perspective of having navigated and experienced the world as a girl/woman for 24 years, and as a man for the past 6 years. These experiences have made me acutely aware of the privilege that I carry in the world, as well as the vulnerabilities of those who are not straight, cisgender, white, or male. I strive to bring an intersectional perspective into my work as a coach, and I find it especially life-giving to work with clients who have also found themselves along the margins of society at one point or another.
"Adam was so wonderful to work with! He is an attentive listener and really helped me to solidify my goals and how I want to reach them. Our coaching sessions left me feeling motivated and capable of accomplishing the tasks I set for myself. I definitely recommend Adam as a coach!"
"I struggled for a long time with making any meaningful progress towards my goals. Working with Adam was a huge help in not only putting my plans into action, but also giving me the tools and agency to continue doing so long after our sessions ended. He was patient, flexible, and encouraging, and it was an incredibly positive experience. I highly recommend working with Adam!" -Maison
