Take Charge of Your Life After Everything has Changed

Listen to Michael and Dianne Raynor as she interviews him for her series, “The Hearts of Healthcare Professionals“.  His topic is “Personal Fulfillment.” 


A book for those who are ready to prioritize their own lives.

In a rare combination of talents, Michael is a compassionate coach with an understanding of spiritual and real-life goals. His insight into the human condition and our relationship with society’s expectations is unmatched. Michael is a life coach who can relate to people from all walks of life.

Michael has a systematic approach to problem solving and coaching that I am in awe of. He can view a situation from multiple angles all at once and I have seen wisdom in his recommendations. Michael also can listen deeply and be present totally.

Dying On The Vine

One of the reasons I left the security of Catholic parish ministry was that I felt as if I were “dying on the vine.” My gifts and skills were not being harvested and put to better use by the church. I often felt like a treasure chest locked away in a dark room. The...

Insecure: With or Without a Job

You’ve probably read recent reports about how 26% of people are considering changing their jobs, post-Pandemic.  Whether or not this is accurate, leaving a job or career at any time is one of the riskiest moves we can make. When I shifted out of Catholic parish...
