Work With Me — One-on-One


my approach —
growth by experiments

Experiments are at the heart of making a life change.

The mere whisper of changing habits and patterns can cause our mind to dig in its heels and outright panic.

The path forward?

Lower the stakes with small tweaks. All change happens by doing differently, moment by moment.

This is why I approach life change as pure experimentation. Tinker here. Tweak there. What might happen? Even if it’s not a forever change, let’s try on these new habits.

When the stakes feel high, you’ll be awash with fear and anxiety. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions.
All life is an experiment.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

 My Story



Looking back on my career, it’s been one experiment after another.

Each experiment was preceded by a rumbling curiosity. A nagging of sorts that led me to explore many different paths.

This curiosity took me to the halls of Congress in Washington, DC, to living the life of an entrepreneur and wine buyer in Chicago, to exploring the tech world in New York City.

These experiments involved political communication, constituent services, social media marketing, life coaching, becoming a wine expert, customer support specialist, and many more hats and roles.

Bottom line?

You cannot think your way into a new life.

Change is about embodiment and physical movement in directions that may not be completely clear at the time.

The reason I coach others from a place of experimentation is because that’s what I’ve done most of my life, whether it be professionally, spiritually, psychologically, or relationally.

Most great discoveries are made through experimentation.

Are you ready to get curious?


Client Testimonials

The coaching sessions have given me such a positive and fresh outlook on my current and future goals. I have been able to zero in on what is top priority and then really focusing on each goal individually without it becoming too overwhelming.
— Thad
Josh brings a soothing presence to each session, but he creates accountability. He motivates you to WANT to do the things you decide at each session. He genuinely wants you to have a good experience and my guess is that he would make any adjustments in his approach to make that happen.
— Stacey
There is something indescribable about Josh’s coaching style. He has a sense of love, compassion, peace and calm that runs deep and wide like the ocean. You feel almost held in his presence and yet whole and complete at the same time.
— Tracy
Josh really listened to me and tailored our sessions to fit my goals...he was always patient and encouraging and persistent in keeping me on track. He provided session notes of our work and would check in with me.

Let’s Work Together

Gut Check & Next Steps

This package is perfect for people who are embarking on a upcoming decision. Do you need a sounding board for a potential new project, job offer, or potential move?

During this 60-minute session, we’ll get laser-focused to:

  1. Uncover potential blind spots as you make this next step

  2. Examine your motivations for this next stage in your life

  3. End the session with more clarity for why you’re going in the direction you’ve decided.

Small Tweaks & New Habits

The package is for you if you already started to make changes in their life, but the new habits just didn’t stick. You’re looking for a bit of extra support and direction.

Over the course of three, 60-minute sessions, we will:

  1. Examine what’s been working and where you’re running into roadblocks

  2. Map out new directions or approaches, based on the changes you want to make

  3. Create a set of tools for you to use even after our sessions are complete.

Life Inventory & Re-Design

This package is for you if you’re in the early stages of making a change in your life. You have a sense of unease, but haven’t quite pinpointed how you’ll proceed.

Over the course of six, comprehensive, 60-minute sessions, we will:

  1. Get crystal clear about one or two areas of life where you want to make a change

  2. Take an inventory of where you’re at, what you’ve tried, and where you want to be

  3. Craft personalized strategies and roadmaps to instill new habits for the long haul.


Frequently Asked Questions

where are sessions conducted?

All sessions are conducted via phone. I’ll provide you with a number to call once you’ve booked your session(s)

what do I get at the end of each session?

I’ll email you notes, along with commitments or “field work” we agreed would be helpful for your next steps. These notes will be sent to you within 24 hours after the session.

how do i book a session?

First, choose the package that fits your needs (see individual packages above). After paying for those sessions, I’ll reach out to you with next steps so we can get the first session scheduled.

what are your qualifications to be a life coach?

I studied at and completed a life coaching certificate at the International Coach Academy (based in Australia) back in 2015. Since then, I’ve continued to improve my coaching skills, in order to best serve my clients.

how many clients do you work with?

I typically work with only 2-3 clients at a time. I have a 9-5 job that I enjoy. However, coaching is a practice I find energizing and rewarding. So I’m pretty selective in who I work with.
