Empirical Wisdom Coaching

There's an African proverb that says "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." We love this advice. It reminds us of how important it is to surround yourself with people who truly help you move forward. But the proverb is only half true. Yes, if you want to go far, go together. But if you want to go fast, do not go alone. Trying to go alone is one of the biggest and most common mistakes people make, and it's almost always the slower path. It's slower because when you try to go alone, you stay blind to your blindspots. You make more mistakes than you need to. You waste time and energy pursuing strategies that are not optimal. Everyone's perspective is limited, and we need to share ourselves with others so that we can gain new insight on how to move forward most efficiently. Friends, colleagues, and family can sometimes play this role, but there is no faster way than with an experienced coach. 

We don't like doing things half way. We each take on only a few clients at any given time so that we can truly invest in them. We get to know our clients extremely well and strive to build a deep personal connection that serves as a foundation for lasting transformation. We think this works best when the coaching relationship is truly non-judgmental and radically honest. Most people can't be fully honest with themselves, much less with everyone else. But complete honesty is liberating, and we are committed to making the coaching relationship safe enough that we can help you see through your bullshit.

Although we work with clients of all ages, our greatest passion and expertise is working with high school students. Many teens have academic tutors, athletic coaches, or music instructors, but very few get the benefit of having a coach who can help them navigate the personal, social, and emotional challenges of adolescence. We think this is a time in life where that support is most needed.

We see clients either on Skype or locally in Santa Barbara. We offer a free 30-minute consultation to see whether working with us would be a good fit. No sales tactics, no pressure to sign up, just a real conversation about where you want to take your life and whether we can help.
