Improve Your Life
Has life got you on the ropes? Work, relationships, family all feeling like you’re carrying a 100 lb sack of potatoes? Are you trying to reach a healthier state but finding it difficult? Do there seem to be barriers that you can’t seem to get past? Did you try some of the popular habit gurus’ suggestions and nothing seemed to stick?
Reaching the life and optimal wellness you desire is only one percent knowledge which is the easy part. The other ninety-nine percent is working through the various motivational, emotional, and behaviorial barriers that we all face as 21st century humans.
Working together, we will explore and unlock the resourcefulness in each and every one of us, empowering you to make lasting change in your lives towards healthier living.
What Does This Look Like?
A coaching relationship can involve many techniques:
- Life coaching
- Evidenced based approaches combined with esoteric methods to discover and uncover root causes of issues and what you need to resolve, and in the time you require.
- Discovery of barriers and blocks to moving forward, and then their removal and resolution.
- Uncovering limiting beliefs and forming positive beliefs.
- Discovery of values, passions and purpose and alignment of life towards them.
- Nutrition coaching
- Deploying optimal lifestyle factors and eating patterns for weight loss, health, performance, and longevity.
- Somatic coaching
- Coaching of the body to uncover hidden issues and new possible resolutions
- Use of sound healing, meditation, mindfulness, movement, and other similar techniques.
- Energetic Coaching
- Esoteric techniques to shift perspective to find solutions where previously not possible using other methods.
We can work either independently or under the direction of a clinician, whose prescriptions you may be finding it hard to implement. Some of the common factors we will look to improve are sleep, stress, behaviors, diet, attitude, among others. We will work together to examine your current life and choose paths to where you wish to move towards. Ultimately, this is a journey of self discovery and empowerment where you will realize that all of these things are possible and that you already have all the raw materials necessary to do it!
I am certified with the International Coach Federation (ICF) with the Associate Coach Credential (ACC). My training comes from Chris Kresser’s ADAPT Health Coach Training Program, and I am an ADAPT Certified Functional Health Coach. I also have training from Marion Franklin’s Laser Focused Coaching Course, and Genco Method techniques which meld evidenced based and esoteric methods, such as the Genco Coaching and Energetic and Somatic Coaching Training:
In addition to my private practice, I offer coaching through three organizations. The first two are Modern Health and BetterUp where I engage with many clients in the corporations they support in the area of mental health, both in the workplace and in their personal lives. If your company offers either, email their support and ask to match with me as a coach. The third is the Unalome Agency, a boutique coaching agency supporting corporate clients and executives and helping them through barriers and reach optimal performance in both their companies and their personal lives.
I highly recommend Dave as a personal coach. He is dedicated to his craft, an inspiring role model and willing to share vast access to resources. He’s a notch above many other coaches in the field – a strong academic education as well as personal achievements such as 6 Ironmans, multiple Alcatraz swims, Russian Kettlebell certification and more. He is a special person to have that level of ambition and determination coupled with humility and sensitivity. Dave has coached me on everything from health related issues, diet and exercise, coping with a new devastating diagnosis, tough career decisions and family relationships. We have had some sessions where I am laughing and energized and others where I have been sobbing, and he just rolls with it like a pro. I have brought him challenging and unpredictable issues and he knows when to put down the “playbook” and use his intuition. I’ll never forget one particular session where I was in a terrible predicament and he took me far out of the box to reconsider the way I was approaching a choice. This helped me tremendously and provided a growing opportunity that had far-reaching results for me. – SG
I wanted to thank you for an incredibly meaningful coaching session yesterday. As I mentioned, I was feeling really disheartened and approached our call with some trepidation due to my own low state. However, I am so glad I stayed the course and was very honest with you about my feelings and the sticking point I was facing. Your questions were hugely transformative to my thought process. It was really bang on. Instead of going in circles which I can do at times in my own mind, each question enabled me to carve a clearer path forward and break the cycle I’ve been stuck in for the past few weeks. I cannot thank you enough! – HCF
