Hi, I'm Joel. Welcome!

I believe that all gay men can… and should… have genuine, inspired and fulfilling lives. Lives free from insecurity, the need for external validation and the misguided feelings of self-loathing that many in our community experience.

I’ve learned that with the right guidance you can create life-altering shifts in perspective that can break down self imposed barriers and reconnect you to your true self. Through individual and group coaching, I partner with gay men to overcome fear around failure, success and judgment by others to help them identify their dreams and reach their full, self-expressed potential.

It is my hope that as each of us become more secure in who we are as individuals, we as a community will have a greater impact on people who have yet to take the first step in being true to themselves.

I look forward to working with you!

Risk Aversion: The Next Big Dream Killer

And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more. –Erica Jong Have you ever heard of somebody on their death bed, tears in their eyes, overwhelmed with regret, saying, “I wish I would have spent more time working at that dead-end job.” Uh, probably not. Why? Because regrets are focused around those things in our lives we wished we would have accomplished and never did. Whether it’s starting your own business, traveling the world, moving to Key West or writing a novel, everybody has big dreams for themselves and their lives. So why is it that so many of us never accomplish the things we want for ourselves? Simple. We live in a risk adverse culture….
