About Rick

Consultant, Counselor, Facilitator, Speaker

If something overwhelming seems to be sabotaging your ability to be your best and thrive, I’d like to show you new resilience strategies and skills to regain your focus and spark new, positive energy…especially when you need it most…and even turn it for good.

Most adults are dealing with unprecedented stress, burn-out and loneliness. Millions are experiencing exhausting emotional and physical pain.

The good news is, there’s a plan for that.

The leaders at Federal Home Loan Banks asked for my help 10 years ago because they were experiencing unprecedented challenges and stress. They were in pain.

And so I developed for them – and for you – PLAN TO BE YOUR BEST©, an effective approach for how to lead yourself, and others, not matter how tough things get.

The strategies and skills you’ll learn about are based on what I gained through:

  • Decades of being my best at chronic pain management having had a life-altering injury and 7 surgeries on my left knee
  • Trained to provide care for hundreds of people experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, stress, chronic pain, terminal illness, divorce, and more
  • Consultant to thousands of leaders seeking to overcome what’s overwhelming and drive positive change

My mission is to draw on all that I’ve experienced and learned, even now with daily pain, and show you how to get through it, refill your sails and find new purpose.

I work with individuals, groups and leadership teams.

This is the best way to get your questions answered about the PLAN TO BE YOUR BEST approach and how it might be able to support you. I look forward to our conversation.
