Life coaching is one of the most powerful forms of support we have for creating revolutionary change in our lives. Through a process of inquiry and personal discovery, clients raise their self-awareness, increasing effective choices and subsequent action, and begin to effect radical change in their personal and professional potential. Coaching accelerates and supports this process by providing greater focus, structure, accountability, and feedback. A professional life coach is not a consultant, therapist, close friend, or advice-giver. A life coach views the client as naturally magnificent, complete and whole; therefore, coaching helps you access your own wisdom and inner resourcefulness, and act on it.
I believe that we all come into this world with a divinely inspired purpose and unique gifts and talents that allow us to be purposeful and fulfilled in our own distinct way. When we are living in alignment and anchored to our core values and purpose, we inherently experience joy, and fulfillment, and begin to create abundance in our world. Through my coaching sessions, I facilitate heightened awareness in my clients and this stimulates recognition of many more choices and options in their lives for which they were completely unaware. Simply put, increased choices lead to greater number of exciting possibilities and actions, which leads to the ultimate-change. Willingness, self-responsibility, and the ability to take action are essential to an exhilarating coaching experience.
During our time together, I create a space of acceptance and safety where the most vulnerable parts of yourself, the most limiting of self-beliefs and self-defeating behavior patterns come to light and can finally be addressed. Alternatively, some clients just need help tapping into their internal wisdom; I coach from the belief that all people, including you, hold their most sought-after answers, their infinite inner resourcefulness, and are truly their best expert. I am not here to tell you what to do. I am here to facilitate you coming to a place where you access this for yourself, develop a plan to achieve this, and celebrate and champion you every step of the way. It is truly an incredible process.
I hold no agenda for my clients. I invite them to bring to the session what they are desiring to effect, and we journey from there. Often, commitments, or homework is given, and this added level of accountability is helpful to many people. However, there are no musts in my coaching. I believe that willingness to take action can only arise from within, and I am only a catalyst to ignite the awareness of this necessity. My coaching is holistic and integrative, and with this my clients quickly find advancement and creation in all areas of their lives-personal, spiritual, work, social, and community. Therefore, I coach the Whole person.
When you hire me as your coach, this commitment instigates positive momentum in your world, increases your focus on your goals, and you and I harness this natural strength and power for you in your life. What in the world could you not deserve more? Taking ownership of a magnificent life must have a starting point and life coaching is the exact tool to utilize on this exhilarating journey. Your commitment to a more fulfilled life through coaching is the fuel for more joy, fulfillment, and abundance in every area of your life.
I specialize in helping individuals, just like you, get unblocked and get going on the business of living.
It’s really very simple:
BE HAPPY-clarify your life purpose, core values, and innate gifts and talents and begin to live in alignment with your most authentic self-joy is truly the only inevitable byproduct!
FULFILL YOUR GREATEST POTENTIAL-learn to overcome the obstacles keeping you from realizing your most precious dreams.
NAVIGATE AND MAKE SUCCESSFUL CHANGES-overcome limiting beliefs, fears, and habits that are blocking your inner resourcefulness and magnificence.
FIND BALANCE WITH YOUR WORLD-so you can live well and peacefully each day.
Read these statements to determine if you should schedule a sample session:
You want to finally move forward in your life and take some tangible action-and not just talk about it.
You are hungry for fulfillment and abundance-and not just financial success.
You are excited and eager to learn more about yourself and how to become your best expert and motivator.
You experience feelings of unfulfillment, stagnation, and being stuck, inherently know there must be “more,” but are uncertain how to tap into your potential and purpose.
You are self-responsible, open-minded to taking action, and determined to start living a life with intention and joy.
You are ready to make an investment in your most precious commodity-YOU.

“From the very first conversation I had with Carrie, I immediately felt as if I had known her for years. While I was going through my transition from the suburbs to the city, leaving everything I had ever known, I struggled with adjusting to my new life. I feared being alone, second guessed who I was and my self-worth. But with Carrie’s guidance, support and knowledge, she helped me persevere and find out much more about myself than I could have ever thought was possible. I now live a life of self-awareness and self-gratitude that is filled with love, enjoyment and satisfaction with myself. That has now spilled into all other aspects of my life and I could not be more happy. I met Carrie in November of 2015 but she easily became one of the most important and most influential people I met last year…and maybe ever!!”
I reached out to Carrie during a time of transition, specifically career. Her transparency, intuition, knowledge and encouragement resulted in clearly defined objectives and new opportunities. I enjoyed and felt empowered by the collaborative process that continued when I felt blocked and when I discovered new solutions. Her feedback was direct, continuous and relevant to every topic we addressed. Thank you, Carrie, for believing in me and my potential to perceive transition as a gift rather than a burden of starting over.
“When I knew I needed a “life coach,” it was in a moment of fog, frustration and vulnerability. I knew myself well enough to know that I wasn’t as incapable as I felt at that time. I simply had lost my connection to that capable side of myself. From my initial consultation with Carrie, I felt comfortable that she was the partner I needed to guide me back to my better, more powerful self. She didn’t profess to have the treasure map of my mind but she did communicate her goals for our relationship as a coach so clearly that I knew I’d found what I was looking for. Carrie is damn good at what she does.
Over the last 5 months, Carrie has helped me better observe the causes of my frustration. Together, we figured out how to avoid losing touch with my true self. I’ve come to discover that I am most capable when there is harmony between my expectations, energy, and activities. Through the weekly sessions with Carrie, we set concrete and realistic goals. By achieving (most) of them, I’ve discovered what works for me and what doesn’t. In short, if you find yourself googling “Life Coach,” like me, it is probably because you need someone to help you get to a better place or get back to a better place. Well, I am confident that Carrie can help you get yourself where you want to be. Her ability to hold up the proverbial mirror so I could see the self-imposed roadblock was so helpful. Then she helped me get over it, around it or simply say, let’s come back to that later. Thank you Carrie for the gifts you’ve given me. And I have your number saved for when I need you next time :)”
“I reached out to Carrie to find clarity in my life. But our sessions uncovered so much more. Carrie helped me discover where I needed to focus during a time of big life changes and confusion. Carrie is caring, invested and very committed to your goals in life coaching. I could not have asked for a better experience.”
“I started working with Carrie in June. I had been tossing the idea of a coach around in my head for years, but a book I was reading at the time urged me to take action so I did. We draw everything we want and need into our life to help us. I found Carrie through a Google search, and was immediately absorbed in her site and everything she believed in. She is so transparent – you get exactly what you think you will get with a cherry on top! She is so much more than a coach! She will become part of your tribe, a trusted friend, that accountability partner you need….I urge you to VOTE HER TO YOUR ISLAND!!! I have been under Carrie’s wing and support for over 90 days now. My life has dramatically shifted. I have met or exceeded every short term goal I initially talked to her about. My thinking has changed so dramatically I hardly remember “BC” (before Carrie). I can’t begin to convey what 90 days of support and structured guidance can do for you and your life. Imagine what can happen in your own life. I am at the tip of my mountain….I am just starting my fabulous journey, but I know I will meet and exceed every single goal I have because she is in my corner. Thank you!!!!! #wortheverypenny#changeyourlife#coachforlife”
“I went into my interaction with Carrie not really sure what to expect and having been shaken by multiple recent life changes…..I came out the other side with my confidence back, my head clear and a plan to move forward. I was most impressed with Carrie’s ability to create space for me to flow through the experience at my own pace and process and yet knowing when to pose those thought provoking questions that helped me move in a new direction. I loved the relaxed atmosphere of our conversations, along with the ever positive and reassuring feedback to follow my own instinct and intuition. I could not have asked for a better experience.”
“Carrie was truly a privilege to work with. Rather than explain all of the obvious qualities about her, I would like to recognize my personal progress as confirmation of her expertise. In just three months’ time, she provided the understanding and encouragement that helped turn me from an anxious pessimist to a self-assured young adult eager to explore new opportunities. I greatly appreciate my experience with Carrie and give her my highest praise and recommendation.”
“Carrie’s soothing voice and compassionate tone have made our coaching sessions an enlightening experience. She gently directs me back when I go off track in a session and leads me to ask the questions truly at hand for me. She has a grace to understand the truth weighing on your heart. Her spirit of hope is delightful and you can’t help but leave the session inspired to do better!”
“Carrie Bowman is a gifted coach. Our sessions provided the specific clarity I was searching for while starting my own business. Her powerful questions sent me on a wisdom quest that unlocked my most successful ideas. I went from 1 paying client to 6 while coaching with her. She is POWER, and will guide you on a journey to your most magnificent self. Do not miss it — I am damn glad I didn’t!”
“I have known Carrie for years, and when she told me she was transitioning from therapist to Coach, I knew she had found her true calling. I signed up for one of her foundation sessions and was so impressed with her professionalism and talent. The experience was very calming and full of insight. She helped me really dig deep and discover skills and passions within myself that I had not realized or acted upon. I felt at ease throughout the session and had a real positive vibe from the start. Overall I found my time with Carrie to be positive, insightful and an encouragement to pursue something greater.”
“The life coach work I have done with Carrie has opened me up to new possibilities. I had a lot of ideas about what I wanted my life to look like one day but it all seemed far away and unattainable. Through her coaching and guidance, I am now able to take action and work towards all that seemed so unattainable. This work has allowed me to connect to the answers that have always been inside of me. There has been peace in this work and a true sense that my life will be beautiful and fulfilled. I was not able to see that before. I am beyond grateful for the time and work she has done with me. I never could have realized the depth of this work and how it would change my life until I began the process of opening doors and my heart changing”
“Carrie is truly gifted and meant to be a Life Coach! My work with her was very profound and inspiring, and I found a purpose in my life that I didn’t know existed but fits perfectly. If you are open to changing your life, this is the course, and Carrie is the guide, for you. I hope your experience is as amazing as mine was!”
“Carrie is the type of person with which you have an instant connection. Her caring is apparent the first time you speak with her.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Carrie for the last few months. She has helped me continue to be accountable for my life choices in a completely positive way, in addition to aiding me in prioritizing my personal and familial ambitions while motivating me to accomplish them, (some of which have been on my to-do list for YEARS!)
The sense of accomplishment and validation that Carrie has facilitated for me is priceless and immeasurable! She’s fostered an internal strength of which I greatly needed to be reminded.
As a client of Carrie’s, I’m confident that I will attain many more long-time goals, as well as continue focusing on being the absolute best ME that I can be!”
“The question was presented: “Were the sessions with Carrie a positive and empowering experience?” My response: Absolutely! Unequivocally, Yes!
Instantly, from the first moment, I felt safe and comfortable with Carrie. Having endured some rough and almost depleting experiences recently, the lack of trust of others was an impenetrable wall I had unknowingly and masterfully constructed. The deconstruction of my well-built walls allowed for an enormous amount of Light to break through and illuminate all that was precious and possible. With Carrie’s direction the sessions were both gentle and invigorating. Her guided meditation opened doors, portals actually, that I didn’t even know were closed, or even that they existed. It is with my deep-felt Gratitude that I share my experience and encourage anyone presented with the opportunity to engage in the coaching experience with Carrie to JUMP! in with all of your heart!”
Thank you, Carrie!
“My experience with Carrie was profound. After reading over the initial questionnaire and a quick explanation of Life Coaching, I knew I was headed down an interesting path to self-discovery. My Foundation Session left me feeling inspired to do great things as well as enlightened as to my innate gifts, talents and strengths. Carrie is an exceptional listener and has a natural ability to help one talk through thoughts and feelings without inhibition. I highly recommend her for anyone who is interested in learning about their core being and how to utilize their true self for life-long fulfillment.”
