That person – YOU – reveals itself through your passionate expressions. Expressing yourself – in whatever way speaks to you – is a critical step in self-discovery. Your expressions help to satisfy your individual needs, provide your life with deeper meaning, and speak to your individuality. These points of expression birth microcosmic experiences that here at Microcosm Coaching we believe hold the keys for future and greater life application. These programs are about accessing and enhancing your expressions, whether they’re athletic, academic, career-oriented, health-centered or otherwise. Our coaching programs hold space for you.

We’ll develop specific, individualized strategies for you to implement to bring these goals to life.
