Transformational Life Coaching

Scott has been such a huge support through our coaching sessions. He has such powerful insights and profound awareness of the deeper issues happening within and allows the process to naturally unfold while holding a sacred space. Scott’s gifts and strength are unique and the healing he offers is profound. I highly recommend him.
Edward Duffy, Arvada, CO
Scott Brown is a kind and insightful life coach. He helped me through a challenging stretch in my life. With his guidance, I was able to reach a significant goal, overcoming many obstacles along the way. I highly recommend Scott as a coach who can make a huge difference in your life.
James Churches, Nederland, CO
My ex-husband and I had tried to work things out on our own after our divorce and even though there were quiet times they were not peaceful. Both of us had behavioral patterns and set expectations that blurred our vision and shrouded our ears from hearing each other. We started mediation as a last ditch effort before preparing for war, with never ending legal expenses and hurting or being hurt. With the help of Scott Brown, my ex-husband and I were able to meet and discuss very emotional topics while staying present and focused. We were able to re-establish our parenting relationship using agreed upon tools that we will use from now on. It has been an incredibly positive experience that has benefited us and our son. I cannot thank you enough for the work you do and guidance you have provided.
Kelly F., Longmont, CO
I felt like Scott’s presence was very supportive. What I appreciated most was how, right from the start, he stayed with what was happening in the present moment. Working through what specifically is my present experience without blaming was challenging and very helpful. I can see my ex-husband more as a person now instead of an ex-husband.
Elizabeth, Boulder, CO
I really appreciated the chance to talk about everything without judgment. The process really helped me focus on issues I would otherwise gloss over.
Nick, Erie, CO
Pretty intense. I was challenged to look beyond what I thought was possible. This process was a good first step for improving communication. I feel positive about the commitments that came out of the process.

He has a great ability to connect with people, show them respect, listen for what they really need, and offer them support and hope. He models adult behavior and values—something desperately needed by so many youth. I heartily recommend his services.”
Leon Rodriguez, LCSW, Client Manager/Parole Officer, Colorado Division of Youth Corrections
“In the 20 years of my professional work in some sort of human services field [the restorative justice circle with Scott Brown] was truly one of the most amazing and valuable experiences. The level of accountability and sincerity I just do not have the words to describe it was so incredible. An EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT resource for our kids, families, and community. It is like miracle work!”
Jennifer Gunnarson-Scott, Client Manager/Parole Officer, Colorado Division of Youth Corrections
“It is a privilege to have observed and learned from Scott Brown while working together at Alternative Homes for Youth. It is abundantly clear that not only does Scott care greatly for the wellbeing of the clients he was directly working with, but every one involved in the Restorative Justice process. Scott believes in Restorative Justice to the core of his being, which allowed many of the youth to commit themselves to the process to the best of their ability. Scott is truly one of the most patient, accepting listeners I have ever met. Thank you Scott for allowing me to be a witness to your work!”
Emily Griffith, Program Manager, Alternative Homes for Youth

Endorsements for Restorative Activism

“During the shock and deep grief of witnessing the 8O-day BP oil spill Scott helped me realize that I could rally and activate my will to help in any small way I could. He reminded me I could not stop it, but I could write on behalf of my beloved ecosystem instead of hopelessly and uselessly falling apart. I wish I had internalized the vital truths he was formulating then more quickly, so I could have healed myself more quickly and acted more strongly. Scott’s wisdom and brilliant methods of seeing our oneness with all living things gives me hope for the well being of the planet.”
Eleanor Crow, Texas
“The calm, safe, and accepting atmosphere at the workshop allowed the participants to share deeply and authentically. I came away feeling connected and less alone in my beliefs in peace and compassion. I found the mindfulness exercises both challenging and renewing, and feel that they will help me gain clarity about how I need to engage with the world. The workshop was a beautiful experience and I will hold it in my heart as a source of inspiration.”
Sarah Solter, Boulder, CO
“I want to express my gratitude and appreciation for the workshop on Restorative Activism. There was such clear commitment and vision in the flow of activities, from the lighthearted to the profound. It was very refreshing to realize that so many people understand the need to synthesize spiritual principles with their actions in the world. The environment created in the workshop was an inspired collaboration. Thank you!”
Beth Bunning, Lafayette, CO
“The workshop gave me a focus for many of my recent feelings. Through my grief I am revealing the path of my activism and service to others. Your work is courageous and truthful and very beneficial to my growth.”
Julie Clement, Boulder, CO
“The workshop was powerful and moving. It gave me the tools to access my “higher self” instead of my ego. As a result I was able to repair and hopefully strengthen a difficult relationship with my daughter.”
Carol Myers, Boulder, CO
