Coaching is a powerful partnership with someone whose only agenda is to hold you to your highest potential. A coach can help you set and manage goals, discover your life’s purpose or calling – support you in achieving a mission and strategize with you about mapping about the best possible course of action for your dreams and your goals.

You can scroll down this page to view categories of TYPES of coaches or use the link below to view all the coaches listed here. Many offer sliding scale rates for military-connected. Some offer pro-bono – ALL  support the notion of helping military-connected individuals live a life of dignity and satisfaction. Coaching is an investment on both the part of the client and the coach yet the returns can be ten-fold…

If you have a chance, even a minute, to decide to work with a coach ( I worked with Jessi), take it. It is worth 10 times the cost.  I can clearly say that this time spent was just the right intensity, and may be the most impactful investment that I have made. ”  T.S. Navy Veteran
