Forward Path Coaching
Laporte, TX USA
I have successfully managed non-profit organizations and U.S. military units for over 25 years, and have had to learn how to create and maintain a healthy balance in my own life between career, family, health and fitness, and finances.
After my time in the military and a dozen in the non-profit sector, I trained to become a professional Life Coach.While I had no intention of becoming a full-time Life Coach, I quickly discovered that loved it and pursued further training in NLP and the Enneagram to enhance my expertise and success for my clients.
At this point, I know that I have found my niche in life—which is to help people get unstuck and find/re-discover meaning, passion, and purpose in their lives. I genuinely understand when clients say they’re looking for a change, but don’t know what it is yet or how to achieve it. I’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt!
Today, as a life transformation coach, I work with high achieving individuals who, despite all their outside accomplishments, feel stressed, are fighting burn-out, depression, poor health, and have little quality time for family, friends, and fun. A large percentage of these people, are searching for connection to something deeper and more meaningful than the hamster wheel they’ve been running on for years and years.
I don’t think you have to live this way! I believe you can have both your job and your life and not have to sacrifice either of them to appease the other. I can help you discover purpose, passion, and meaning in your life—because I’ve done it in my own life!
Fortunately, you don’t have to wait 20 years like me to find your calling in life. Life Coaching succeeds by helping you work out what’s important to you, what it is you want and how to go and get it. While I take what I do with clients very seriously, making the process fun and enjoyable is just as important to me. I want my clients to bounce out of bed on the mornings they have coaching appointments because they know that they will have a great time moving towards wherever it is they want to be.
What makes me different than other coaches? Most life coaching focuses on providing clients with tools to get them from Point A to Point B. While this is important, many of these people quickly fall back into their old habit patterns and find themselves back where they started. In my coaching practice I help people to tap into their inner world, to gain a greater access to inspiration, intuition, and spiritual wisdom which changes them from the inside out. This is where lasting, sustainable change happens, which manifests in the physical world as:
Fulfilling Untapped Potential
