Center of Focus LLC​

 

I have a record of over 35 years of outstanding proven success in the leadership, strategic planning, project management, project implementation and support of corporate operations for fast-paced logistics, legal, health care, education, retail, utility, food product, grocery, graphic design, manufacturing, distribution, non-profit and government organizations. Throughout my career, I have consistently received commendations for my technical skills, leadership, professionalism, pro-active project management style, attention to detail, dedication to a stable computing environment, client-centric focus, and for the excellence of my communication skills. These skills are invaluable tools that support my interest in better understanding the business processes supported by technologies in team based environments. My goal is to bring my breadth of experience and energy to work for my clients who are seeking to improve career opportunities, process, practice, and performance.

I am an example of my own beliefs regarding learning, coaching, mentoring, and continued growth in a lifelong career. My focus is to improve skills to meet the changing needs of organizations while providing guidance through coaching and mentoring. 

I am a Tacoma Boy, born and raised in Tacoma. I have been fortunate to have had the ability to travel extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. I have had the honor to immerse myself in many cultures. One of the important aspects of my practice in marriage and family therapy is a strong understanding and acceptance of others, their beliefs, and lifestyles. 


I have been married to my wife, friend and partner Jeanette (see her to the right). During the over 35 years of our relationship I have adapted, grown, changed, evolved, and embraced who we have chosen to become as individuals and as a couple. I have learned that communication between the couple and family is a key element to bring about positive change.


As a licensed marriage and family therapist I have found that through the use of emotionally focused and cognitive-behavioral therapies I have been very successful in guiding my clients to finding new pathways in life.
