Lee Kaufman – Life Coach

By creating an honest, human connection, Lee helps people to first calm down, and then to see their unhealthy and sometimes even destructive patterns for what they are, simply patterns. Then, through a clear and fresh approach, he lays out a path, one doable and manageable step at a time, to bring forward healthy change. His first career was over a decade in traditional Finance roles, so he fully understands the pressures and rigors of our modern-day life. Over the last 15 years, he has worked with people on healing nearly every aspect of their lives, from the physical (yoga, meditation, breathwork), to the emotional (self-concept and love), to the intellectual (career and financial pursuits).
