Work With Me

Work With Me

Coaching reveals choice. Where a circumstance in your life seems black or white, coaching helps you realize that there is color. Where you see nothing but dead ends, coaching uncovers the secret passages or the hidden backdoor.

– Clayton Olson

Through our coaching, I help you step into a version of yourself that you’ve always known existed but could never quite access. And then bring that version of yourself fully into your intimate relationships or the work you do in the world — or both.

How It Works

How It Works

Through transformative coaching conversations — blending cutting-edge neuro-science, NLP interventions, and radical self-inquiry — I help my clients shift out of their self-doubts and embody a new set of core beliefs to take into the world, their work, and their relationships.

This allows them to show up confidently, connected to their value, and knowing they can trust themselves to handle anything that life throws at them — in their work and relationships — feeling at peace, clear, and inspired in the process.

There are five fundamental shifts over the course of our coaching relationship that happen regardless of the specifics of what we’re working on.

SHIFT ONE: Who you grow into as you pursue your goal IS the goal.

SHIFT ONE: Who you grow into as you pursue your goal IS the goal.

Of course I help people achieve their goals. However, I notice most people punish themself along the way in service of those goals. But really who you being while in the pursuit of your goal IS the destination.

Said another way, how you relate to yourself while going after goals is primary. What you create comes second. Most people have this the other way around. And they are miserable.

I notice that when people prioritize results and aren’t prioritizing their growth they either divorce from their authentic selves in pursuit of the goal OR they become too outcome-attached and find themselves paralyzed by perfectionism or performance anxiety. If you can relate this, you are not alone. This is the default way we have been taught to live our lives.

As you prioritize who you are becoming, a sense of ease and respect naturally surfaces, giving you more access to more power and resourcefulness, so that you can enjoy the journey to your goals.

And ironically, the results you end up creating are often 10 times greater than if you had focused only on the results.

SHIFT TWO: The past doesn’t have to define you or your future.

SHIFT TWO: The past doesn’t have to define you or your future.

When we have unconscious beliefs from the past showing up blocking us in the present — which most of us do! — the best advice in the world means nothing.

For all of us, our past has given us a set of assumptions about ourselves that we operate under and define what’s possible and impossible in our lives. When you can revise those beliefs, a more accurate understanding of who you are, truly, begins to show up in the world, your relationships, and your leadership.

With my unique and powerful method, we can quickly unearth those unconscious beliefs and shift them at their core so you can move through any old limitations with ease and be fully aligned now as you move forward into the future.

And then, integrating and acting on great advice becomes a smooth and rewarding process.

SHIFT THREE: You have an inner champion that can become louder than your inner critic.

SHIFT THREE: You have an inner champion that can become louder than your inner critic.

Most people think they need to hire someone for answers. However I know you are whole and complete and have all your answers inside you.

People don’t invest with me to give them answers. They invest so they can create a broadband 1TB connection with their own inner champion — that part of you that is reliably in your corner, supporting and inspiring and protecting you, and helping you gain clarity on what is right for you.

This coaching process isn’t about giving you answers, although you will get that, this is about putting you in direct contact with your own inner knowing so that you can coach yourself for the rest of your life.

SHIFT FOUR: You are a creator.

SHIFT FOUR: You are a creator.

You are creating everything in your life by who you are being. If you are experiencing suffering or stuckness, let's look for how you’re actually keeping that pattern alive. When we change who you are being, we change your life.

I want to help you wake up to how powerful you actually are, that you are already creating your world from the inside out. When you understand how you are creating it, you can then know how to dismantle it.

We always get to choose our experience around life’s circumstances – no exceptions ever.

The pen has always been in your hand, and it is at the heart of my work to help you realize that you can write something new.

SHIFT Five: You’re already winning.

SHIFT Five: You’re already winning.

You may just not be winning at the game you consciously choose. Although it comes as a surprise to most of us, actually there isn’t a single aspect of you that is trying to sabotage, hurt, or ruin your life. All stuckness and fear are simply forms of protection.

When you know this, you can then create a vision for you and your life that PULLS rather than PUSHES you forward. You become motivated by inspiration rather than fear. Rather than running from what you don’t want, you are magnetized into sustainable action by what you do want.

And then loving yourself AND moving forward with total alignment to create what you want becomes not only achievable but inevitable.

About Me

About Me

I help people come into total alignment so they can create the relationships, businesses, and lives they love.

I work with people who want to significantly uplevel their intimate relationships or the work they are doing in the world — and often both.

My clients feel at peace, clear, and happy with the choices they make for their lives going forward.

Rather than teaching quick-fix strategies, my style works with the deeper drivers behind people’s most painful experiences in relationships, and adjusts those experiences so clients can secure a life they endear, with a love that endures.

To date, Clayton has over 20 years of experience working to optimize human behavior and social dynamics. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Communications, Masters Certification in Transformational NLP (Marin-style), and is Coaching Training Alliance (CTA) accredited.

Let’s Get Started

Let’s Get Started

I offer full-commitment coaching. I am in your corner as a consultant where and when you need it most, on and off our calls. Because of the high-touch nature of the relationship, I only work with a handful of well-vetted clients at any given time.

Many of my clients I work with for 6-12 months, and some I've served for several years.

The structure of our work together is designed to create transformation and shift your life permanently.

We start with an application.

If it seems like we are going to be a great match, we’ll set up a consultation.

Fees range from $7,500 to $36,000 depending on length of the coaching relationship and frequency of sessions. Should this be a good fit, this will be discussed at the end of the initial session.

If you're interested in experiencing how this work can change your life apply for coaching.

My one-on-one work is subject to a 2-step application process.

Please note: applications that are successful will be detailed, self-reflective, and thorough. The impact of coaching starts now by getting deeper with your challenges and motivations to make lasting change in your relationship.

Everything you share in your application is sent to me securely and held with complete confidentiality.

Step 1: Submit a detailed and reflective application for coaching.

Step 2: If selected, you will receive a formal invitation to connect with me for an initial clarity session.

During this session, we will support you in creating greater clarity about what you would like, what is happening in your relationships, career and life, and more importantly, the real thing that is holding you back.

By the end of the session, we will also be clear on what your next steps are based on your unique and specific needs, and how to continue your client/coach engagement. This is assuming I am the right fit to continue working with one another AND you are in a space to make a financial investment in your future. To get started on your journey of transformation:

Whatever pain or struggles people have in and with relationships are 100% valid. Often, the advice they get from friends and family is for them to: let it go, move on, there are plenty or fish in the sea, or stop making it such BIG thing. But the truth is relationships ARE a big thing. People who are in pain aren’t crazy. And there is a way to make sense of everything and experience a less painful version of love, connection, and companionship.

I show up for our conversations,
we talk and somehow magic happens in my life.
I have been working with him for years now and I am still not even sure how he does it. It is a continually amazing process. He is incredibly present, very insightful and one of the few people in my life that I can truly count on to call me on my bullshit.

- Ben E., Portland, OR

Having Clayton as a coach was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Through our work, I have built a more powerful version of myself and now have valuable tools for creating an abundant life and approaching my business with clarity and better decision-making. Clayton has played an instrumental role in helping create my personal operating system around dealing with day-to-day operations, business partnerships, and personal relationships. I now have clarity in how I see myself and am able to take effective actions aligned with my vision and goals in my business. This has been an incredible experience and I recommend it to anyone whether you're running a business or going through a significant life event and need a professional in your corner.

- Cody L., Co-Founder of Twice

The difference between Clayton and other advisors
out there is his authenticity, and his amazing coaching ability – he has a diverse and extended background and he pulls from this experience as he works with you.

– Suzanne, Virginia

Clayton is a God send.
He is a wizard and a genius when it comes to coaching and relationships. Thank you so much! When I met Clayton and started working with him I felt he was a gift from God… I still believe that. I was at my wits end when we met. I felt destroyed, depleted, lost… And Clayton slowly helped build me back up… helping me achieve what my mind told me was impossible but my heart yearned for: reconnecting with the woman who dumped me just a few months ago.

– BR, Ottawa, Canada

Clayton helped me shift my mentality
and improve my communication skills in all my relationships. He especially helped with my ex girlfriend, who came back to me after many of the changes implemented through Clayton insight.

- Nate, NYC

Clayton is an amazing person with incredible insight to offer.
He helped me through a very difficult time in my life, a devastating breakup with a man whom I contemplated having a family with. Clayton made me realize so many things about myself, such as the need to set boundaries and to honor myself and trust my gut instinct in certain situations. In the 3 months that we worked together, Clayton made a major impact in my life, and has helped to shape me into a stronger and more confident woman.
