Biography for Maté Rivera-Uribe


Certified Professional Life Coach, ACC with a MA in Psychology, and Certificate in Human Resources Management.

I moved to Seattle in 1989 from Colombia, South America. After overcoming difficult times, I created a life in the Northwest that I love and embrace. Life Coaching made a huge difference in the way I see my life and the way I choose to live it!

I worked in Colombia at an International company Carvajal, SA in Human Resources before moving to Seattle. Prior to starting my private practice as Professional Life Coach I worked at Microsoft Corporation in the International Department and Belirtz Language Center in Human Resources-Training Department.

I am a firm believer in human greatness and passionate about the multicultural world. My purpose as a Professional Life Coach is to partner with my clients to create better lives for themselves. I support them by finding clarity on who they are based on their own values, talents, and gifts and on what they truly want to accomplish in their lives.

My background in Psychology gives me the foundation to assist my clients to understand what is holding them back from living the life they want to live instead of just dreaming about it. This transformational process helps my clients to grow and manifest their highest potential in all avenues of their lives finding a more rich, balance and fulfilled life.

My passion for learning and working with my peers keeps me involved in the Coaching community, I’m a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF) , the local chapter of ICF, the Puget Sound Coaches Association and as a graduate from InviteChange, I continue my growth attending their dynamic programs, such as  Living Your Vision® Licensed Facilitators.

I am happily married and I have two beautiful twin boys. Even though the rest of my family is back in Colombia, Panama, and Quebec I keep a close connection with them.

I love the outdoors, enjoy horseback riding, hiking, biking, and sailing.

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside dreams? Who looks inside awakens.” Carl Jung
