What Others are Saying...

​​Steve's candor is tempered by a grace and compassion that makes it safe for others to be honest about what they're experiencing and to also encounter hope. ​Steve offers himself as a companion to those who feel like they are drowning, not as a lifeguard but as a coach saying "Hey. You can swim!"

​Andre Henry

​Former Managing Editor at RELEVANT Media Group

​Life coaching is one the best investments we've made for our family. Steve has the ability to help you draw up plans that fit the design for where you are in your journey. ​​You just need a gentle (or sometimes straight forward) push in the right direction. Steve is that guiding force and knows what he is doing.


​School teacher and coaching client

​In the case of every wound he knows, Steve has turned that wound into a source of healing power. That is why he is one of the most mobilized, energized, walking witnesses of New Life I have ever known.

Rev. Ed Bacon

Author of 8 Habits of Love, regular guest on Oprah's Super Soul series, former Rector at All Saints (Pasadena), interim rector at St. Luke's (Atlanta)
