I help people spend less Destructive energy on Overwhelm & Stress and more Constructive energy on developing Balance, Meaning, and Joy

What clients are saying...

Tommy was a friend, a colleague, and an all-around godsend...He quickly provided digestible perspective on tough problems, as well as issues that could be solved when he pushed me to move past my own stubborn roadblocks. He challenged me deeply, but always with a safe kindness that encouraged me to keep working. He made me realize that I am a more powerful person than I gave myself credit for, and am in control of the way I react to experiences of varying difficulties. 
I am so grateful that I've crossed paths with Tommy and I hope we continue to do so for years to come. If you are considering working with him, don't hesitate: you'll never, ever regret it.

The best part about working with Tommy – among many things – is his welcoming personality. He makes you feel like there is no topic unworthy of exploration, and it's these topics that often yield unexpected and valuable reflections. Tommy has a unique ability to surface the right questions, allowing you to come to intriguing conclusions. An unexpected result of working with Tommy was thinking about what he might ask me when something came up related to what we talked about. It's pretty cool that Tommy can help you even when he isn't there : )

"Tommy's calm and kind demeanor make it easy to talk through stressful and sensitive topics while creating actionable and thoughtful solutions and goals...When I started, I felt much more discombobulated overall and having a difficult time managing stress - which in result was affecting my whole self. Since participating in coaching, I have seen a huge benefit to how I approach and think about things at work, but also seen it bleed over into my personal life in a positive way."

I had the honor and privilege of working with Tommy. When I signed up for the twelve sessions of coaching, I didn't really know what to expect, but I was excited, I could tell that it was going to be a great experience. What I didn't realize at the time was just HOW life changing it would be.
In the beginning of the sessions, Tommy does a stress assessment, and repeats it again at the end of the sessions. I couldn't believe what a difference the deep dive sessions actually made in my ability to better manage my day to day stress. I am now armed with a series of tools which I can rely on going forward to help me stay in better focus / de-stress mode.
His insight and natural empathy make Tommy a perfect life coach. My perspective on work / life balance and ability to better manage it all has been forever altered thanks to these empowering sessions.
I couldn't recommend coaching sessions with Tommy any higher, on a score of 1-5, I give Tommy a 10 stars rating! Absolutely life changing!!

"It's a powerful thing to trust in someone to the extent that I'm willing to share things about my own perceived weaknesses, etc. But being able to talk through challenges and have not just a sounding board, but a wise, prescient, non-judgemental, open, honest, and caring guide to be there to help work through ideas is incredibly valuable for me."

What do you think makes for a successful session?

"#1, vulnerability. It helps laying out my cards for Tommy to have a true sense of my self perceptions...It's nice to have someone there to help hold the mirror up, so I can better be accountable for my own progress."

What are some of the biggest changes in your life as a result of our working together?

When I get frustrated or angry, I find myself taking it into my own hands to try to recognize how I'm viewing the situation, and explore how that view is helping or hurting my experience. This is life-changing.

My Story

You’re never on the wrong path. But it’s up to you to choose to bundle up when the path gets cold, to wear a hat when it’s sunny, or to carry a light when the path gets dark.
— Tommy Acierno

I serve others as a Professional Coach with over 15 years experience in the technology industry (six of those years at Google) including work in IT, technical support, documentation, coding, strategic planning, acquisition migration, budget management, project management, people management, and leadership development coaching.

I have certifications as a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) and an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner (ELI-MP) from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), as well as an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) certification from the International Coach Federation.  I am also a featured columnist for the iPEC media platform.

I believe that every client I work with has all the building materials to effortlessly perform at their very best, in alignment with their authentic self, and with the spirit of a master. Together, we clear away the "thought-blocks" that hold them back and shift energy around so that they can see their true potential and amaze themselves.

And this is EXACTLY how the great self-masters operate.

They master their thoughts, emotions, and actions with patience, practice, confidence, perseverance, and belief in themselves. With the support of a coach (that’s my job) who's there to champion, challenge, and explore, my clients leap onto the stage of life and give their heart and soul in alignment with their purpose, effortlessly. And when YOU perform in this way, YOU become a beacon of inspiration for others, too. And that's how we can shift the world towards our collective highest potential - one person at a time.
