Life Coach, Spirituality Coach, Leadership Coach
CHt, Transformational Coach, Certified NLP Practitioner
Transformational Coach. Thought Partner. Insight Facilitator. Strategic Advisor. Philosopher. These are some of the ways I've been described. Regardless how a coaching engagement may begin, I play whichever role is called for at different times over the course of our relationship.
My passion and my work is supporting my clients to figure out what's really going on, discovering who they really want to be, and exploring how best to get there. Sometimes the work focuses on getting 'unstuck', other times it's more about getting in touch with our own inherent wisdom—it's always about developing greater clarity, harnessing inner resources, and then moving forward.
My own non-linear path, from undergraduate work in Philosophy, through several years in bank management and an MBA, to a doctorate in Psychology, is a testament to my enthusiasm for exploration and my willingness to embrace what actually works, not just what's expected.
Using an incredibly powerful and unique assessment technique, the Projective Differential™ (PD) as the foundation, I have developed Tapintu LLC's Deep Insights™ – a process through which, together with my clients, we tap into deeper levels of awareness and understanding about a challenge, decision, or murky situation to develop greater clarity and insight. Along with this clarity often comes a renewed sense of peace, energy, and commitment to action.
In my Insight Facilitation work I also use other 'projective' techniques to harness the power of the subconscious mind to help clients get at what's below the surface, to generate new ideas for action, or deeper understanding of a situation so they can move forward.
In Transformational Coaching work, the focus is on deepening self-awareness, enhancing resilience, and becoming more mindful and fully present. Together, all this work helps one move from reactivity to responsiveness, greatly enhancing performance and ultimately, happiness.

Scott and I have worked together multiple times since 1997, prior to when he founded Tapintu. Scott has been a huge value as a creative thought partner who has helped immensely build my own now patented IP and business enterprise. He is able to see the big picture while also tracking and drilling down on critical details. He is highly intelligent and quickly comprehends both key detail as well nuance, and masterful at handling the complexity of both the creative process and the practical application. The creative environment that Scott and I have crafted has been of great value in helping me think clearly of how to take my life work and significant business value from it. He is able to leap intuitively to see the real issues and opportunities, and is very conscious of maintaining a strong trustworthy long term partnership with which we are able to leverage our many years of working together to mutual benefit. I am not only recommending Scott, I am committed to make sure he fulfills his significant goals in life as my creative partner.

I'd highly recommend Scott as a valuable coach and partner in success to anyone working towards a major goal but who finds themselves bogged down in the process. Scott helped me to get 'unstuck' and to see my project through to completion. Scott keeps his eye on the big picture and the ultimate goal, even while diving into the immediate details of whatever's impeding your progress. He perceives the blinders you may have to what's really going on, gently bringing them to your attention and, along with his ability to reframe difficult situations, uncovers alternative perspectives that can help you shift to something more adaptive and consistent with finding a path to your goal.

Scott shows a great dedication to his work. His background and depth of knowledge shine in his work with assessments (e.g. the Projective Differential) and strategic direction. From his attention to detail in his client service efforts, to his clear analysis and concise communication with those he coaches, Scott's insights, clarity and sound counsel are a valuable investment.
- Amy H., Consultant, San Francisco, CA
Scott has a grounding and guiding presence that enables clients to step into their process trusting that they will gain the clarity they need to make significant shifts in their life. He is adeptly attuned to the subtleties of internal conflicts and uses the Projective Differential with such high integrity that he is able to help unlock their deeper "truths" so they can feel empowered to take action in meaningful ways. His ability to deliver penetrating feedback without judgment allows clients to experience the fullness of their reactions while benefitting from the insights of a trusted and valued partner.

I met Scott and learned about JOG Your Right Brain at just the right time. I have been pursuing a dream to develop a business that would have a positive impact on my favorite industry – Logistics. This is an industry that resists change, yet that is the very thing I’m so committed to doing. Thanks to Scott’s tool AND his clever coaching I realized that I had work to do to bring alignment with my partners, our start-up, and my vision of how the industry needs to change. Then Scott helped me with an epiphany that I can align my start-up with what makes me tick. Now my personal vision is in sync with my deeply-felt interests. Imagine that… getting a stronger “me”, doing the work I love to do and am good at, and kick starting our business. Not bad for a couple of hours of time invested and Scott’s great coaching.

Scott's commitment to his clients is felt time and time again. His insight and expertise are invaluable. His advice is practical, but practical doesn't always mean easy! He challenges his clients to push their boundaries and discover their full potential.
- Alexander C., Coach/Consultant, Boston, MA
Scott is a truly gifted professional who combines excellence in teaching, facilitation and coaching. He blends remarkable intelligence with real human heart and is a wonderful person to partner with. I was certified in Scott's Projective Differential/JOG Your Right Brain process and have been using it successfully with clients ever since. This process, also known as Insight Facilitation, is a simple yet sophisticated approach to helping people access their deeper intentions and insights relative to complex problems and challenges they face. As a result, people can make clearer decisions, take more meaningful actions and achieve the outcomes they truly desire and need. Scott has worked diligently to make his process easy to learn and enjoyable to use by both practitioners and clients. I have great admiration for Scott and am grateful for who he is and what he has done.

After a couple of coaching appointments with Scott, I was able to clear my mind and confidently make decisions that I was unable to make before the sessions. He taught me how to listen to my own awareness and inner voice. I was able to tune out the chatter, the doubts and fears that really prevented me from moving forward and accomplishing goals.
Scott asks questions that point toward a state of mind that is clear and simple and allows you to know what is right for you.
I highly recommend Scott as a coach if you have issues with confidence, are having trouble with decisions or if you just want a quieter mind and a greater sense of awareness. The sessions with Scott are so worth it because once the light bulb goes on and you "get it", it's life changing and you don't need anything more.
