What leads you to become a coach?
I have always had an interest in people. Since I was a teen, friends would ask me for advice (strangely enough, it was mostly girls wanting relationship advice, though I did not have much experience in that arena). I loved these conversations at the time and eventually, when deciding upon a career, I decided it should involve helping people. I eventually obtained two degrees, one in Theology and the other in Psychology, both of which are oriented in this direction. My goal is to glorify God through my service toward His creations.
What do you like best about it?
My favorite aspect of counseling others is seeing the transformation which can occur in the other person’s life as a result. Getting to be part of a person’s journey toward improvement (especially spiritual improvement) is a rewarding and fulfilling experience, each and every time.
How do you recharge on your day off?
When I wish to recharge, I typically read, write, play sports video games (I’m not coordinated enough to play the real thing), exercise, or spend time with my wife and child.
What are your three favorite things?
My three favorite things are the Bible, my family, and superheroes.
