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!

Dwelling in the Space of Enough

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never have enough. –Oprah Winfrey I’ve always struggled with the idea of having enough. It started for me as a young child growing up poor and struggling for everything I had. We always had less than the other families in my neighborhood and I was constantly feeling “less than” because of it. This led to comparison and shame, and also the creation of my limiting belief around having enough, and being enough. For much of my adult life, this belief played out in the form of a never ending drive to accomplish more, be more and have more in…
