Meet David

Greetings and thanks for taking the time to find out a bit more about me. My name is David Shawn Smith and I am an Atlanta Based Executive and Personal Life Coach who has been in the field of human development for more than 15 years. In addition to my experience I have a B.A. In Communications and Rhetoric and M.S. in Leadership and Coaching and certifications in Executive Coaching and Anger Management.

Interacting with people throughout the years, I have come to understand something very fundamental. Regardless of backgrounds or current situations, people are looking to survive and thrive as human beings. It has been my joy to listen and take part in conversations across the USA and abroad around the subject of purpose, destiny or “why am I here?”

The results have given me this amazing opportunity to share what I believe and know about this thing called life. As a Life Coach, I have given numerous talks one-on-one to bright, smart, creative and passionate people who have stopped along the way to search for much deeper answers.

My background as a Licensed Minister has given me the tools to help others on their Spiritual quest. The relationship has pushed me to gain a much broader perspective around spirituality.

People are seeking a much profound and balanced spiritual life. The joy to partner with them is indescribable. These intimate encounters lead me in to the field of Life Coaching.

What Do Life Coaches Do – Using My Gifts As Your Life Coach

 

I know my gift on this planet is to help co-create with clients the life they are seeking. In my practice, I use the Murray Bowen Family Systems model. Bowen’s model allows us to see, how we are all in a system in our lives. When we understand each important part of our lives are locked into each other, then we can begin to look into this in a more mindful way.

If you’d like to learn more about my philosophy on Life Coaching and how I think it differs from psychotherapy, visit our what does a life coach do post.

If you are in an unfulfilling career, it impacts your whole system, which includes, family, money, relationships, health and much more.

Using this systems approach gives the client and me the direct correlation between all that might be happening when one part is off.
