Life Coach

As a Certified Professional Life Coach in the area of health and wellness, I help people actively address their lifestyle choices to achieve better balance and improve their quality of life.

Diagnosis Dystonia

Navigating the Journey

Recognized by the Michael J. Fox Foundation and featured in Pain-Free Living Magazine, Diagnosis Dystonia is a must read for patients, family, friends, caregivers, health care providers, researchers, and anyone who knows someone living with dystonia or other chronic health condition. Readers will benefit from the knowledge, wisdom, and experience I have gained through first learning to cope with dystonia and then improving upon the life I lead. This book will help others find their own path in pursuing life in which dystonia is not the focus, but a catalyst for finding better days.

Education ♦ Inspiration ♦ Motivation

After battling life changing health challenges, I am on a mission to share my message of hope and determination. My educational, inspirational, and motivational presentations teach people of all ages and backgrounds how to survive and thrive in face of life challenges. I believe all obstacles are opportunities for learning and growth, and this is what I will share with your group to help them live with greater passion and joy.

Client Testimonials

Tom was just what I needed when I was finding my path after being diagnosed with a chronic illness. He is compassionate and understanding, extremely positive, open-minded, and very intuitive. I highly recommend getting in touch with Tom if you are looking for some extra help or direction, encouragement, support or just an uplifting conversation.

J.C. – Kansas

During a very difficult time I was suicidal and heading for dangerous addiction. I credit Tom with helping me find my way out. He will always have a special place in my heart because of it. He really listens and tailors his help to the individual. Tom is a natural mentor.

C.M. – New Jersey

You put things in a way that are so rational and logical, yet encouraging and reassuring!

R.S. – Canada

I probably don’t thank you enough, but the time you dedicate to help me through life’s challenges means a lot.
You’re a good man and the world needs more people like you.

J.C. – North Carolina

You make me think, you make me grow, and you challenge me. You are an amazing person!

E.C. – Texas

Tom creates an environment of safety right away. He was able to get to the heart of the matter quickly.
His ability to support the feelings involved while addressing the facts make him an excellent coach.

K.B. – Michigan

You have been an asset in my life and an outstanding coach. I can only see you helping others in such a positive way as you have helped me. You have given me helpful tools to use going forward.

J.D. – New York

As always, you have summed up what’s going on with me in a nutshell. Just reading an email from you perks up my day and gives me hope. Bless you for being out there day after day with great advice and inspiration for the rest of us

A.M. – Indiana

Tom has an ease when coaching you through a situation that any notion that you’re being “coached” falls to the side. I can say without Tom’s coaching I’m fairly certain I would still be sitting at the crossroads feeling trapped. I now feel 10 lbs. lighter and 10 years younger.

S.B. – North Carolina

Tom offers a different perspective when appropriate and generates powerful questions, each of which have increased my self-awareness and led me to generate ideas to accomplish my goals.
