What I want you to know about me is that I am a World-Class Coach.
I have over 11 years of sobriety.
I graduated law school first in my class and practiced corporate law at an elite international law firm where I excelled and accomplished unprecedented results.
I have Coached clients to fulfill possibilities beyond their imagination, including genuine self-love, healthy and happy relationships, total well-being, spectacular professional success, financial freedom, transitioning into dream careers, and making a meaningful difference for humanity.
I am continuously moved by my clients’ acknowledgments and gratitude for our work together. I save many of their messages in a folder on my phone. One of my favorite text messages that I received said “My whole life changed on our call today.” And part of a message I received this Holiday Season read “This has been the best year of my life.” These messages mean more to me than I could ever possibly articulate.
I am deeply in love with my wife Kylie, our daughter Vella, our two cats Georgie and Jaxy, and very grateful for the incredible relationship, family, and life that we have built together.
I have an unwavering faith in the God of my understanding.
And I was once a professional tap dancer in New York City 🙂
What I also want you to know about me is that I struggled with drugs, alcohol, perfectionism, people-pleasing, anxiety, depression, and the adverse affects of trauma for many years and I sometimes still do.
Life has not always been easy, and I am still very much a work in progress, like the rest of us.
For many years I hid behind a mask.
I hid my emotions and fears, and pretended like everything was okay.
I suffered in silence for decades before hitting rock bottom in 2011 when I wrecked my vehicle while blacked-out drunk.
Fortunately, that was exactly what I needed to wake up and step onto the path of recovery that would ultimately set me free and get me here.
The best part is that my most challenging life experiences are now my greatest assets and authentic sources of empathy and compassion as a Coach.
Whether we ever get the chance to work together or not, I want you to know that you matter, your life makes a difference, and that you are beautiful, wonderful, and whole and complete, as is. At your core is pure innocence and love. It’s okay to have made decisions and taken actions that didn’t reflect your best self. We are all human. We all make mistakes. And we are all works in progress. Know that you are loved and that you are love. You are always divinely protected, guided, and supported. Steer your imagination in the direction of your dreams and go after what you believe in with true commitment. That’s how miracles happen. Work hard and work smart, and be the best and most you. I love you and I believe in you.
“Stephen is one of the most loving, profound, invested, dependable, and empowering coaches I’ve ever had the honor and privilege to work with.” ~ Alejandro Navia
