Applied Empathy

Connect Across Differences

Leverage the Power of Diversity

Engage with an Open Heart

So much more is possible than we were taught in all of our relationships.

Many of the challenges we consider "normal" from the boardroom to the bedroom don't have to be.

As parents, managers, life partners and friends, we are all leaders; role models who are responsible for creating the psychological safety needed to champion human potential and adult development. 

Are you ready to explore what more is possible?

Custom Coaching Programs

to meet you where you're at.

Couples Coaching

Perhaps our greatest challenge and opportunity for growth is in intimate love relationships. Learn to be trusted allies for each other's evolution and connect more deeply than you thought was possible.

1:1 Deep Coaching

As you grow and develop, you face new challenges in life. As a result, you have to change and reach higher states of consciousness to be able to handle the new challenges. Enter this powerful container to explore what you're truly capable of.

The single biggest challenge you face as a high performer is that your game is so much bigger than that of anyone around you. You play at a level at which most people cannot even see how much you are holding back from what is possible.

Executive Coaching

Empowered with the right tools, knowledge and self-awareness, we’re no longer at the mercy of people or circumstances.


You can STOP getting sucked into frustrating, exhausting and often petty disagreements to get the most out of all of your relationships.

Research shows that empathy is more a skill that can be learned than a trait. 

The Shift



The ability to understand and share the feelings of another.

Applied Empathy


Demonstrating that you understand another person's point of view so completely that their nervous system relaxes because they feel you get it and know they're not alone.

“Conflict is growth trying to happen.”

"Connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship."

- Brene Brown PhD LMSW

Applied Empathy

is a practical neuroscience-based bridge to connection.
