David was born to learn, heal, and create in service to love, life, and beauty.
As a vocation, coaching & facilitation emerged as an unexpected calling after 7 years as a teacher dedicated to experiential learning and 15 years in multiple entrepreneurial roles in sustainable real estate and community development projects.
He feels coaching is sacred, beautiful work–when people seek out coaching they are courageously claiming something sacred in themselves and their “one wild and precious life” [humble nod to Mary Oliver].
David loves his clients. He recognizes the profound trust they place in him as he listens deeply for what is essential and emerging in them. His presence invites full mind, body, and soul participation and creates a space where deep wisdom, creativity, and vitality can surface. A place of potent possibility is co-created.
David’s facilitation practice extends this calling to group practices and the amazing potential activated in intentional, collective settings. He facilitates Constellation Circles, design processes, men’s circles, and custom workshops.
David’s work is aimed at activating potency, while healing our connections with each other and our soul.
Aside from these passions, David seeks out natural beauty, fun and challenging movement (sports & dance), and designing and making useful, beautiful things. He deeply loves being a husband, father, brother, and son.

*Truly a life-long learner and creator, David is always discovering where his wonder and guidance will lead him next. He’s been very fortunate to work with some gifted coaches, healers, therapists, and teachers.)
Katie is devoted to direct, intimate relationship with the divine.
Her active pursuit of healing arts and cultivation of her craft and capacity began at 12 years old, when her mother introduced her to energy work. She’s been on this path ever since.
She has studied with many gifted healers, shamans, and spiritual leaders. Katie is an empath, intuitive, and clear channel of divine energy for her clients.
With over 30 years of exploration, cultivation, and deep surrender, Katie has received, developed, and brought forth her energy work, Flow of Grace.
Always in relationship with her divine guidance, Katie’s work has evolved in a variety of settings and taken various forms. In its current incarnation, Katie offers private (Flow of Grace) energy work sessions, mentors apprentices, co-facilitates Constellation Circles with David, and paints Energetic Soul Portraits for established clients.
