Advancing Greater Success, Fulfillment and Learning From the Inside and Out


Coaching isn’t “new" anymore.

Or is it?

When someone dares to say YES to themselves in the context of life and business coaching, it is a NEW, extraordinary day. This is a day of celebration—a day when all manner of things, both internally and externally, can begin happening.

My Clients

I serve a small number of high-functioning, talented men and women who have determined that investing in a high level of listening, feedback, input, direction, and accountability is in service to their personal and professional transformation.

I work with committed individuals who are willing to move forward in their lives . . .  even while fear is present. Whether we’re creating a new phase of our career, strengthening a marriage, learning how to expand our business, or becoming a more effective communicator and leader, fear is often part of the process. This can be especially true when we accept that our current way of operating is no longer serving us, or when we discover there’s a new dream, a new vision we are being called into.

So What?

Clients I work with accept that fear is not a good enough reason to not do something. That doesn’t mean I require my clients to not be afraid. Fear is totally fine, and absolutely part of any new endeavor. And — I’m not interested in being fascinated by fear, or allowing my clients to hang out in fear. Fear is just not that interesting. Uncomfortable - yes, compelling - yes, understandable - absolutely, positively yes. Interesting - not so much.  

Together, we acknowledge fear and all the feelings associated with new territory, difficult conversations, and making changes. My clients learn and do the hard work to discover what it really means to be compassionate with themselves in the process. And, the agreement we make is that we don’t use feelings as reasons for not moving forward (even when we want to).

Over and over again my experience is that when my clients sit with me, bringing their lives into the quiet space where they can hear the voice of their hearts, miracles can occur—miracles of inspiration, fulfillment, creativity, deeper peace, joy, and real, tangible, long-lasting results. Results that range from new jobs, increased sales, and businesses launched, to stronger, more honest and caring relationships with oneself and others. Fear becomes a small story that is left behind, and a new story is written.

As partners we work together to forge new pathways in your life. In my own experience with my own coach, I have found that anything is possible . . . if I am willing to show up again and again and do the work.

If you’d like to explore whether working together would support you, contact me and we will schedule a conversation.

"I have known Carolyn for over 15 years and recently witnessed her walk through the death of her best friend and business partner, Michelle. The circle of support Carolyn led people into, in service to Michelle was a demonstration of her Loving leadership, even in the most painful of situations. Her commitment to Michelle touched many people's lives. She is using that experience in her own life as a stepping stone into even greater leadership and positive difference making in the world. 


"Carolyn is one of the strongest professional coaches and facilitators I know. Her ability to assist others in their growth, in learning how to use obstacles as stepping stones is exceptional. 


"Any time with Carolyn is a game changer."

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”― W.H. Murray
