Hi, I'm Tony Norkaitis, certified life transformation
My wife and I trekked across the country in a small van with two large dogs and a cranky old cat and landed in Beaverton, Oregon a little over four years ago. Crystal had the opportunity to relocate through her work, which allowed us to end up living just 2 miles away from her only daughter and son-in-law. Although there are certain people and certain things we miss about the east coast, we have embraced the natural beauty and charm of the Pacific Northwest.
I became burned out after several years of working in the nonprofit sector and decided that it was time to step out on my own. I enrolled in life coach training with one of the premier coaching schools in the country, completed my certifications, formed my LLC and have spent the last 4 years honing my craft. I love my job and look forward to serving others every day.
I started out working with primarily Baby Boomers and GenX because I am one. I have served as a Naval Officer, spent many years in the corporate world, transitioned to the nonprofit sector serving underprivileged children and their families, and raised four children during all of this. I am now in a position where I can use my training and life experience to focus on YOU and how YOU can live your best life.
what makes me qualified to serve you?
I have experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows in this crazy thing we call life. I have experienced rebellious teens, relationship challenges, job loss, bankruptcy, divorce, career changes, loss of loved ones, depression, anxiety…. even my own suicide attempts, recovery and PTSD. I not only survived all of this but thrived.
I have spent most of my adult life studying about the human condition. I have degrees in psychology and business. I am trained in hypnotherapy, NLP and Core Energy coaching.
I specialize in teaching others about the power of gratitude and living a grateful life. I know
the value of and the differences between counseling/therapy and coaching because I have experienced both.
