In 1988 while in graduate business school, Douglas’ life changed with a phone call. His father had passed over and the traditional plan he had envisioned for his life changed drastically. He finished his MBA and decided to take a gap year to determine what really motivated him.
Douglas found that following another person’s formula for business success was unfulfilling and committed himself to discovering his own passion and purpose as a business owner. While taking relationship classes in early 2000, it became quite clear to him that the revolution he was interested in was bringing healthy communication to all his relationships. Armed with theoretical knowledge, he decided to conduct his business from this principle of clear and authentic communication and was overjoyed to discover it is a formula for success in every area of one’s life. This has been a journey of discovery and Douglas enjoys helping other leaders discover this same insight of how being present and genuine can reap amazing results.
Douglas is passionate about understanding, exemplifying and coaching these same skills. He is a Certified Relationship Coach, an Emergent Care practitioner and focuses on sharing how well-being and clarity of mind can deepen one’s human experience. His wisdom, gentle manner and heart-centered communication encourages the healing space necessary for clients to make extraordinarily positive changes in all their relationships.

After nine years of national sales experience, Eileen decided there had to be more to life than the corporate grind and moved to Boulder, Colorado. In Colorado, Eileen met Douglas at “Relationship Classes” after previously dating for almost two decades with very little success. Their 18 years together has been one adventure after another and they are grateful to call Austin, Texas home after living in Colorado, Arizona, British Columbia, and Central Mexico. Each new location allowed them to gain more insight into the people around them, their motivations, strengths and talents. This experience allows them to tap into the innate wisdom of each client while empowering them to redefine success, reconnect to their passion, and rejuvenate their personal and professional lives
Douglas and Eileen also have a son, named Finnegan who is 15, and 2 West Highland Terriers, Penny and Max.
