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!

“Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony.” ~Thomas Merton Hello Friends, Balance has become an ever-elusive thing these days.
