Coaching Approaches & Methods

As we age, the trappings of success that seemed important at an earlier age can start to lose their meaning. Maybe you have retired and feel rudderless without the self-image and purpose that your career brought you. In later life it may be harder to make friends and have a sense of community.

Some of us entering later life may suffer an identity crisis, and a return of the questions: Who am I? What are my values? What do I believe? What matters most to me? What is my purpose in life? How can I give back to the common good? What happens when I die? 

Responding to these questions requires a different approach to life than we typically employ when younger. Third Chapter Coaching will help you to shift your focus from traditional measures of success to a more inner-focused form of success that is not dependent on external circumstances. I will help you navigate the transition to the next chapter of your life consciously so that you can experience freedom, joy, and satisfaction. The result is a sense of inner peace and meaning that will make your later life more fulfilling and enjoyable.  


I spent most of my career working as a mechanical engineer in the corporate world. In 2020 I retired from being the CEO of a company working in renewable energy to focus on supporting others in finding their purpose in later life. I hold a masters degree in transpersonal psychology and have extensive training in coaching, mindfulness practices, and other modalities to help my clients in personal growth and transformation. I am the author of The Enlightened Ego: Discover Your Ego's Purpose and the Path of Transcendence.  I now provide online coaching from my home in the mountains of Colorado and from my sailboat in Florida.
