As a freelancer, being held accountable is essential to my productivity and satisfaction in my day to day, yet it’s been the easiest thing for me to sweep under the rug. 

I reached out to Darren recognizing that how I’ve been operating no longer works for me and who I want to be in my life. 

Enter Darren: an incredibly gracious, wise, and generous mentor and coach. My time spent working with him has been fundamentally transformative, and he has offered me insights I can apply practically to my life, right here, right now – not just theoretically. Our work together uncovered where I have been deluding myself, where I have been exceedingly hard on myself, and where I’ve been resisting acceptance of what is.

Holding the space for me, suggesting reframes of narratives I’ve been telling myself, illuminating more actionable ways I can make and reach my goals are just some of the topics we’ve covered. The amount of time, energy, and attention he’s offered me, even after a session, reflects the heart and passion he has for his work and for being of service.

I am exceedingly grateful to Darren for infusing my life with a new-found hope and excitement and for all he offers to our community!
