What I Offer:
I look forward to using my expertise to discover together what are your unique resources that will allow you to overcome your problems and achieve your goals. It is my experience that each of us have the resources we need, including the ability to acquire the new skills that will be useful to us. Often these resources go unnoticed, playing out with unconscious ease as we move through life. It’s only when we run into problems that a lot of benefit can come from being deliberate with the skills we ordinarily take for granted each day. Rather than fall prey to the same old stumbling blocks, you can become the director of your own experience by engaging your natural abilities. And if you are in transition in your life you can clarify what you want and move forward with confidence and ease. I work with individuals from around the world, meeting both in-person and over Skype.
Call or email to set up a free 15-minute phone or Skype introduction to see if this is a fit for you. For those in other countries or who live out of town, I offer sessions by phone or Skype.

I charge $120/hour (Sessions are usually 1 to 2 hours.) To avoid being charged for a session you don’t attend, please notify me at least 24 hours in advance in the event you need to re-schedule.
Paying it Forward: When you invest in yourself through coaching sessions, you’re not only helping yourself, you are also helping contribute to the lives of others through donations to the top-rated charities for 2016, according to givewell.org. Last year’s charity was the Against Malaria Foundation and together we funded 1,200 long-lasting insecticidal nets to protect 2,160 people. That’s four entire villages.
I offer a sliding scale on a case-by-case basis for motivated individuals with restricted funds.
Born in Boulder Colorado, I grew up with the presuppositions of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) as a consistent part of my experience: there is no failure, only feedback… people work perfectly… behind every behavior is a positive intention… My parents, Steve Andreas and Connirae Andreas have been developing and training NLP all of my life, so I grew up in the midst of a new understanding of how each one of us experiences outer reality through the five senses, creating our own unique and rich internal representations and resultant strategies for navigating through the world. When we understand these inner structures, we can change what isn’t working for us, shifting to what does work.
In private practice since 2009, I also train NLP around the country, am instructor of NLP at Red Rocks Community College, a trainer for NLP of the Rockies Practitioner Training and Master Practitioner Training, and I am designer and trainer of the Next Generation Practitioner Training in Longmont CO. Together with Steve and Connirae Andreas, I co-sponsor Andreas NLP Trainings, which hosts innovative trainers and trainings at the growing edge of the NLP field. My past experience includes having worked in wilderness therapy as a counselor/trip-leader for the Monarch Center for Family Healing where I was in charge of facilitating groups of “troubled” youth on a daily basis both in individual therapy and group process. In 2006 I completed the NLP Comprehensive NLP Practitioner Training in Colorado, and in 2008 I worked as one of four facilitators of the same seminar. I completed my NLP Master Practitioner Training with NLP Comprehensive in the summer of 2008, and my NLP Trainer’s Training in 2009 at the NLP Institute of California. Since then I have coached and participated in many more trainings (see full list below). My book “Sweet Fruit from the Bitter Tree: 61 stories of creative and compassionate ways out of conflict” was published in 2011, and my book “Waltzing with Wolverines: finding connection and cooperation with troubled teens” was published in 2015.
