“Working with a Life Coach created the family focus that was much needed, giving us the hope life-line that had been missing from the standard psychiatric care approach we had previously used. Our Life Coach not only provided us with an essential and substantial support system, but also became a trusted confidante.” —Anthony

“Life coaching has made a huge difference in my life this past year. Having lost my husband several years ago, I found myself unable to move forward. My Life Coach helped me move through the debilitating stress that kept me hostage. She provided life-altering strategies that helped me transform the thoughts that had been fueling my gray-colored perceptions, keeping me stuck. I feel so blessed to have had a Life Coach to help me. Because of her intervention, I have been able to take back my life and find joy once again.”—Cindy

“Four years ago I believed I was unworthy of God’s love. I brought up every dirty thing that held my life hostage from my destiny. Little did I know how my Life Coach would walk beside me and equip me with practical every day tools to break free from such tragic bondage. With biblical truth & wisdom I now know how to face life as it comes. Instead of wondering where God is in my circumstance, I now declare who my God is to the circumstances! Life Coaching was a key to opening every locked door that kept me from becoming the powerful woman God created me to be on this planet!”—Kristi

“I was introduced to Life Coaching at a time I felt chained in my circumstances and fell victim to hopelessness and crippling shame. I did not have high expectations for Life Coaching and was prepared to give up at the first sign of condemnation. This condemnation never came. Instead I was met with arms of love, shed tears, and encouraging words of truth. My life coach introduced me to my true identity as a beloved daughter of the Most High King. She took my hand and walked beside me as fear lost its power in my life and I began to discover my true purpose and destiny. She helped me see myself through the eyes of the Father who truly delights over His children and who promises that though we stumble, we will never fall. Life Coaching challenged me to go deeper, restored the hope I had lost, and gave me a refreshing new perspective. I am eternally humbled and thankful for my experience with CCC Life Coaching.”—Cassandra

“Having a Life Coach had been a Godsend! Imagine having someone come alongside of you, helping you find your way through, picking you up when you stumble and cheering you on to keep going. The coaching process has given me life-changing perspective. I now have choices, options and tools available to me to empower me to become exactly who God made me to be and I can do what he designed me to do.”—Becca

“I have been incredibly blessed to have a life coach in my life. I am thankful for the many things I have learned, and how life coaching has improved my life. As I put the tools and skills I’ve learned into practice, my attitude and thought-life have improved, consequently improving my relationships, my work and my life in general.”—Lisa

“Since my wife has been meeting with a life coach, she’s able to handle difficult relationships and situations better. She is developing confidence in herself and she has a much more positive grateful attitude.”—Keith

“My life coach helps me sort through facts, thoughts, ideas, realities and beliefs that effected the way I view life. Through working with my life coach, my perspective became more positive and I am now empowered in my ability to respond instead of react in difficult relationships and situations. As a result I have seen these difficult situations & relationships improve. The life tools & skills I received will continue to strengthen and encourage me.”—Kathy

“I have thought, countless times, how I would be completely lost if I had not made the decision to meet with a life coach. I could not repay her for all she has done, to show me how to live an EMPOWERED LIFE!"—Gloria


What do the coaches at Life Coaching Partners do?
We are certified wellness professionals who empower our clients to expand their personal, family, and business insights, develop goals, and work towards accomplishing desired changes. Using a positive approach that builds on strengths, we support individuals and/or couples as they begin to think differently, walk in freedom, enjoy healthier relationships, and achieve long-lasting change.

How do I connect with a Life Coaching Partners coach?
Our names, contact information, and more about our individual practices are listed on this page. We are all trained and experienced in a broad range of areas but we each have expertise in specific areas as well. Please call or email us for more information/a brief consultation.

Is there a fee for your services?
Individual sessions are $60/hour; Payment can be made by check or cash prior to or at the time of appointment. The fee for a packet of 4 sessions (paid upfront) is $200, a savings of $40. (Alternate payment arrangements may be made by coaches with individual clients.)

How long is a typical session?
Sessions are usually an hour long. But they can also be extended to 1 ½ or 2 hours, with fees adjusted accordingly.

Do you take credit cards or participate in health insurance programs?
Unfortunately, at the present time we don’t accept credit cards and health insurance does not usually cover life coaching.

Do you only do in-person sessions or are there alternatives?
We do face-to-face sessions both in the office (located at the back of the CCC Prayer Center) and at other locations, conduct phone appointments, and use electronic communications platforms such as Zoom, Facetime,.... Please discuss alternatives with your coach.

What’s the difference between coaching and counseling?
According to a 2022 article in Psychology Today, coaches and counselors often have similar objectives but different licensing requirements and areas of focus. Counselors typically deal with mental health issues and helping clients heal from past experiences. Coaches also support clients in the healing process, but primarily focus on “the future, unlocking potential, and growth.”

If my coach and I aren’t a good fit, are other options available?
Yes. Having a “positive therapeutic relationship” is an important element of effective coaching. If your initial coaching partnership isn’t a good fit we’re happy to suggest another coach within our group. Or we can refer you to an outside resource.
