You know them.
The people who radiate calm, compassion, and power. Those who can say what needs to be said, who lift others up, who stay centered regardless of the chaos raging around them. They are unstoppable, their lives work, and they make their dreams come true. They are the ones that people follow, who have deep and loving relationships, and who seem as if they could reach beyond the sky and touch the stars.
These are the ones who have mastered themselves. Who have banished their negative thoughts, their judgments, and their endlessly looping resentments and petty upsets. Who no longer need to be right or to fight for status or to have their way. Who are not stopped by fears, the judgments of others, or by the thousand life-numbing concerns the rest of us allow to limit our lives.
I coach for Personal Mastery. To develop in you the six key characteristics that personal mastery requires: self-knowledge, for if you don’t know yourself, you can’t grow; courage, for without it, you won’t have the heart to move forward; responsibility, for if you blame others for the circumstances of your life, you give away your power; your relationship to reality, for if you mistake your thoughts and feelings for what is real you’ll be trapped by your own illusions; integrity, for if your life is not in balance, it will come apart; and, finally, heart-centered, for it is connection, service, and love that elevate our lives.
If you would like to blaze your own path, chase your dreams, and be your own person; if you would like to transform your family, community, or workplace; and if you would like to be content, with peace and joy lacing your days—let’s get to work. Call me today.

Working with Russell is a transformative experience. Through his clarity, kindness, and tenacious determination to stay the course, I was able to identify the limiting lens through which I viewed the world and made a leap into a more powerful and cohesive lens.
This perspective shift, made possible by daily practices, has allowed me to craft clear declarations to achieve work, family, and personal health goals. His calming acknowledgement of my courage and small victories provided milestones for progress and incentives to persevere.
I now pursue the life that I choose, one with an increased level of gratitude, possibility, and state of ease. I know the path that I need to walk and the heart I need to bring each day to live a powerful and beautiful life.
Russell’s strong coaching and authentic communication has changed my life and the life of my family. I am so grateful and excited for this expansive gift.

Russell has used his great talent for getting at what stopped me or limited my performance in my career. He was indispensable in a time of heavy stress and uncertainty and coached me through it when I had no one else to turn to. I highly recommend him. New York, NY More...
When I started with Russell, I was very skeptical about whether coaching was "right" for me. Two years later, our work together has transformed my life, bringing what I thought were impossible results at home, with my family, and professionally. Russell strikes a perfect balance between being supportive and pushing me out of my comfort zone; he is unquestionably the best listener I've ever met and adapts his technique and life experience in customized ways that fit my needs. The work can be hard-- there are days when I get off the phone with him feeling like I have so much more to do. But the payoff has been extraordinary and led to a richer life. I will be forever grateful for my experience with Russell. More...
Working with Russell was a totally transformative experience. In our first session, he told me that coaching was in large part about reflecting back to me what he was hearing, in a way that I could see myself anew.
That's exactly his genius: the ability to get someone out of the weeds and gain a new perspective. I learned so much about myself: patterns of behavior, mechanisms that held me back, and tools to overcome those mechanisms. I arrived completely stuck in a job and paralyzed about relationships; 11 months later, I had landed a promotion, embarked on a solo creative project, and delved back into dating with confidence. Russell's patience, empathy, and perseverance even with the most stubborn of clients (that would be me) make him an outstanding coach.

Compassionate, direct, resourceful and nonjudgmental, Russell created an environment (on the phone somehow!) where I could not run from myself if I was committed to generating a far more peaceful, powerful version of me.
Working with Russell was walking hand in hand into the storm of my being, seeing what is there, acknowledging my role in the context of my fears and aspirations, and emerging, face to the sun, with a toolkit at the ready.
