Full Life seeks to help you integrate wisdom and practice to live a full, joyful life.

Life is too short and precious to squander. Each and every moment presents an adventure, where possibility, wonder, and goodness await you. Working with a guide can help you achieve the fullest, most extraordinary life possible.


You seek an integrated life.

You know that goodness and truth are real, and available to you. But it can feel hard to see that.

Perhaps you sometimes feel like your life doesn’t reflect the values in your heart.

You go looking for answers – in books, at a church, in politics – and you are left wanting more.

The ‘more’ is key. You know there is more to life. More joy. More goodness. More of a sense of flow – that your heart’s desires, the gifts you have, and the work you do in the world – all align and move in the same stream.

You seek deeper connection. You seek a deeper connection with the Universe (you might name it God). Maybe you are frustrated because this connection doesn’t exist the way you think or know it should.

Maybe you know and feel this deeper connection, but you feel the need to cultivate it with good wisdom and practice. And, you want to connect with other like-minded people who are as dedicated to the journey of Full Life as you are.

I am naming these things because this has been my journey. It is the journey I am on now. I have not arrived, either.

But here’s the thing – it’s not about arriving!

It’s actually about the journey.

I hope that wherever you are on your own journey, you will find something here that helps nourish and sustain your own path.

Full Life is about discovering the wisdom and practices you need to live a full, joyful life.

Through one-on-one guidance, you can become the joyful, complete person you know you can be, fully engaged in compassionate service. I offer spiritual direction, guidance, life coaching and companionship and I will walk with you on your journey to a fuller, more integrated life.

My name is Matt and I walk with people who are exploring what it means to deepen in their own lives. This work, which some call spiritual companionship, spiritual direction, guidance, or life coaching, takes the form of a one-to-one listening relationship rooted in curiosity, non-judgement and compassion. My goal is to assist in your own personal growth, see the goodness in your moments, and to learn to walk through life in wonder, joy, and gratitude.

Full Life is yours to claim

We can all agree that we long for better – for ourselves, our families, and our communities. For all the hand-wringing some do over relativism and moral ambiguity, I believe we all universally yearn to be whole people. Whole within ourselves and with one-another. Anyone can achieve this wholeness – it is your birthright.

In fact, I believe the more we actualize our wholeness, the more we can be of service to others, seeking their own wholeness, which compounds and works towards the healing of the world.

But how do we do it?

  • The fact you are here, and reading this, is an indicator that your ‘Inner Truth’ is pinging you, letting you know there is more to Life.
  • Learning to hear your Inner Truth, and then acting on it, will guide you.
  • How do you know you are hearing your Inner Truth? We receive the wisdom of those who have walked this path before us, and we integrate it.
  • Full Life is a journey. Attuning to your Inner Truth, and responding, takes practice.
  • Receiving wisdom, and integrating practice into our lives, attunes us to our Inner Truth, which reveals to us and helps us creates the extraordinary life we seek!

I am a certified life guide and meditation facilitator. My approach to life guidance is to compassionately hold listening space in a one-on-one session. My goal is to provide safe space for exploration and discovery as you work towards finding wholeness in your life, your career, your family and friends, and within.

Working with a guide can awaken you to new possibilities, new connections and a new sense of meaning and purpose in life. I offer this practice for you! Ready to learn more?

My practice benefits from the land on which I live and work. I acknowledge this land as stewarded and blessed by the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish People. I offer gratitude to the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe, and I support their fight for federal recognition and reparations through the Real Rent Duwamish movement.
