M. Divinity, SPHR
I am a Career, Life & Spiritual Coach.
1) Career Coach: I am a widely sought after Master Coach. I work with people at all career levels - Entry Level to Executive. As examples, I work with students and recent grads beginning a career; attorneys contemplating career change; those entering or leaving the non-profit world; people reentering the workforce after time away; artists working full time or part time in an Art that they love; people not fitting any particular category but seeking guidance in finding meaningful, well-paying work. I've held executive HR positions with several major corporations, ultimately as Chief Administrative Officer and VP HR with Hitachi Metals America. I continue to provide HR consulting services to organizations.
2) Life Coach: My approach is"Transpersonal". It means I work with the whole person. The Life Coaching conversation usually encompasses important factors such as Self-Care, Life Direction, a Life Plan, Relationships (personal and professional), Purpose and more. Our work often focuses on overcoming obstacles and "stuckness", awakening inspiration and vision. I am a partner - someone to whom you will be accountable in making your progress and reaching "stretch" but fully achievable milestones. Accountability is a support that many find to be the most valuable parts of Coaching.
3) Spiritual Coach: After 12 years of study and spiritual formation, I was ordained as a Catholic Priest in 1980. I left the Roman Catholic ministry in 1984 and have continued to minister since that time, now as a priest of the Progressive Old Catholic Church. I teach meditation. I have made a 30 day silent Ignatian Retreat. With a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Philosophy, a Master’s Degree in Divinity and Pastoral Counseling and additional studies and certifications in Human Resources and Career Counseling, my spiritual and life experience is broad.
I am a blog writer (http://workcalling.blogspot.com/) about issues of Meaning and Work.
Michael provided invaluable insight and concrete suggestions for me during a career transition. He is empathetic and a gifted listener with a genuine desire to help his clients attain their professional goals. I highly recommend him to people seeking guidance for a variety of workplace issues.Sue Tyrrel
