SUCCESS STORIES

When I reached out to Carrie, my life was far from being in disarray externally.  I had a great job with an abundance of freedom, I was financially thriving, and I was living in the location I had dreamed about far before I thought it would be possible.  I would go through periods of feeling that my life was perfectly on track to moments and seasons where I felt unexplainably unsettled.  Why didn’t I feel as put together as others saw me?  Why did I often feel like something was missing?  Why didn’t all these external things make me feel more fulfilled and grateful?  

Working with Carrie through the Self Mastery Program was pivotal in my journey to gain clarity and has turned out to be one of the best investments that I have made.  Her Self Mastery course and coaching sessions integrated concepts that I had never explored regardless of the numerous years I had invested in personal development.  One of my favorite things about Carrie is her uncanny ability to provide the perfect mixture of candor and compassion.  I can’t overstate how much I value her expertise, support, and the monumental impact she has had on my life.

Working with Carrie has been such a pleasure. From the moment we first talked I felt a remarkable connection with her. She maintains a connected presence during the sessions, both individual and group calls and seems so clear about where I am and knows when I need a push, or when she simply needs to listen and simply be there. The Self Mastery program is well thought out, clear and digestible; the work is not easy, but the program is simple to follow.

When I reached out to Carrie, I was stuck in a spot where I was longing for fast answers. I was constantly overwhelmed in my day to day. I thought I was looking for a coach who would feed me the advice toward those answers. Yet, what I found was a coach who took a deeper approach to gently guide me in discovering the deeper mechanisms which contributed to the anxiety and overwhelm. The Self Mastery program was exactly what I was searching for-deep and genuine growth. Self-awareness and new, more adaptive skills and tools are a large part of Carrie’s program and through developing these practices I now have a stronger tendency to slow down and observe the anxiety in a way that allows me to work with it instead of fighting against it. This is a huge shift for me and I am so grateful to Carrie for helping make that possible.

I’m now halfway through Carrie’s Signature Self-Mastery Program and my life is starting to feel very different. My past hasn’t changed, problems and challenges haven’t completely disappeared but my beliefs, perceptions and experiences of them have. Everyday struggles feel a bit smaller, less taxing, my self worth starts to emerge, I’m starting to make choices that feel more meaningful and positive.

Carrie quickly opened my eyes to what I was experiencing and why, presented other possibilities, and I started crafting new stories. I am starting to feel alive again. I’m hopeful again, I let myself explore better options, think more positive thoughts, and laugh a little more.  By examining and learning about myself (through Carrie’s program, individual coaching and listening to her tribe) I revisit old wounds with compassion of the best friend and Carrie’s wisdom.

At a time when I needed perspective on a big life/career transition and was dealing with uncertainty and self-doubt, Carrie came into my life. Our work together provided me a very timely safe space to explore the genesis of some of my very counter-productive mind chatter and beliefs.

The Self-Mastery modules, program master coaching calls, and the new skills and tools given that formed the cornerstone of Carrie’s approach were absolutely 100% relatable and left me with a playbook of solutions to apply to many future challenges both professionally and personally. I refer back to the materials and calls often and find them very affirming. But more importantly, Carrie is the REAL DEAL. She speaks from a place of absolute truth, has lived a life of zero BS and has an unbelievably generous heart. Time spent with Carrie will reap huge lifelong benefits. I’m so grateful for her coaching.

I reached out to Carrie after noticing relationship themes at work and in my life that were repeating themselves. I wasn’t sure what to expect from Carrie, but had a strong sense of wanting to move beyond the patterns I seemed to be stuck in. 

Throughout the Self-Mastery program, Carrie provided invaluable information into how the brain/mind works and can impact our success, how we feel and the choices we make. Carrie has a unique gift in that she delivers direct feedback yet is beside you along the journey.

I found Carrie’s Self-Mastery Program because I had this longing sense that there has to be more to life than just being on the hamster wheel and after years of consulting with friends and colleagues I felt as though I had gotten as far as I could on my own.  I’m happily married, gainfully employed, and have a really nice life- yet I just had this burning sense that this couldn’t be it for me-there had to be more and I wasn’t satisfied with just accepting this was it so suck it up buttercup.  I thought if I could figure out what I wanted to do career wise I’d be set- yet similarities of work and personal relationships that are near and dear to my heart- family and my husband- kept coming up as well.

It has been my pleasure and joy to have had Carrie as a coach and supporter throughout the Self-Mastery Program as we have shared this journey towards a more conscious and empowered life. She is as authentic a human being as I have ever known and creates an environment that truly encourages open and honest communication. With her encouragement, I have achieved a level of clarity and balance in my life that has exceeded my expectations. The Self-Mastery work was far deeper and more effective than I had ever imagined, and changes came very quickly. Her wholistic approach with the Self-Mastery work, core modules that I have access to forever, powerful master coaching calls, and frequent contact and coaching with her brought me to a level in my life I have never experienced. Carrie is a very calming and loving influence, while providing an invigorating stream of motivation. She has been beyond instrumental in helping me pave a path to success in all areas of my life. 

– RYAN LANG

I found Carrie at a time in my life when I was struggling with the question, “what comes next?”. I was 42, newly single, and in the midst of a career transition. I had no explanation for why my life felt so empty and void of purpose, but I felt completely detached from myself, my relationships, and my work. My confidence had been shaken, and I felt no direction or calling. I had silenced my inner-voice because I no longer trusted myself. I was lost. 

The Self-Mastery course was essentially an accelerated deep-dive into everything which had led me to this point in my life. Working with Carrie throughout this journey was an incredible gift. Her insights were so on-point sometimes it felt like she was reading my mind. Her understanding and knowledge of this work is extensive, and she shares it in a way that is easy to consume and very relatable. As a coach, she balances motivation with authentic compassion and hard truths as she guides you through the lessons you need to learn.

I do not honestly even know where to begin to sufficiently describe the invaluable set of tools to elevate my entire life I have learned from Carrie’s Self-Mastery course. My entire life shifted – in a beautiful direction – after engaging in her course. 

I have been in coaching for several years, and while I have benefited greatly from coaching, this program made a wild amount of difference for me in being able to break it all down and truly begin to grasp the reasons for the hard habits I wanted to break, and lack of fulfillment in my life. Carrie’s program digs deep and helps one focus on the fundamentals to truly affect change in your life. It helped me find clarity and actually shift my entire life into one that was more fulfilling and more in line with the life I had always wanted to live, but was disconnected from – and afraid. This program led me to a deep place of understanding, healing, and courage to face my fears and follow my dreams. I was able to see clearly what I needed to do to elevate my life, and then walk through the fear to take myself through the process of making difficult decisions and moves to align myself to the life I truly want and deserve to live.

I cannot say enough good things about Carrie and her coaching program! I’m over 50 and have never had a problem taking care of myself. A friend recommended that I get some help about 4 months ago since I couldn’t focus on anything productive. I wasn’t eating properly, wasn’t exercising and couldn’t work. Therefore, I turned to Carrie during an extremely low point in my life. Carrie is a very supportive and caring person and expertly guided me through this period of my life with a new playbook of skills and tools, changed belief systems and outlooks, and a sustainable way to live more present and connected in my life. Together we identified what was causing my mind to “spin” rather than focus and created a clear path of how to move forward. Sessions with Carrie and working on the “homework” showed positive results almost immediately. It isn’t simple and takes work, but with help from someone like Carrie it’s a very doable and incredibly rewarding journey. 

– JIM STIPPICH

My work with Carrie in the Self-Mastery Program kick-started a transformational journey in my life that had been what I had been searching for for so many years. I had an idea of what I wanted when I started working with Carrie but no clue about what that would look like. My work with Carrie opened up a whole world that I had barely been exposed to before. Carrie is so patient, knowledgeable, understanding and time spent with her and the group sessions was beyond valuable. I highly recommend the program especially for those at a point in their life where they are ready to put in the work to understand how to better navigate life’s challenges and fully connect with themselves and their greater purpose.

– CATHY MOORE

I came to Carrie at one of the most difficult points of my life. In my mind, I was struggling with the direction of my career. In reality, I was juggling anxiety, restlessness, a new marriage, increasingly unfulfilling work, and dreams that seemed impossible. I was skeptical of any sort of help, but I was at the end of my ability to help myself. I connected with Carrie during the complimentary initial consultation, and we continued to have these incredible weekly calls for the next several months. To say that our meetings were helpful would be an understatement. Carrie was able to listen and understand me in a professional but warm way that I couldn’t expect out of my family and friends. She built me up weekly, listened to my fears, held me accountable for my goals, but let me dictate the direction of our conversations and discover myself at my own pace.

“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 roadblocks 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 :)”

– DAVE KRAUSS

I reached a point in my career where I began to question whether the situations I found myself in were due to some behavior or pattern I kept repeating. A colleague mentioned he’d had an amazing experience working with a life coach, and I began to do some research to find someone who could help me get unstuck. I found Carrie’s Self-Mastery Program and read the many testimonials from people who seemed like they had also been in a job or life situation they wanted to change, and how much she had helped them. I contacted Carrie to see if working with her would be a good fit for me, and our first conversation intrigued me enough to join her Self-Mastery work. 

I learned more from the program than I thought possible! I loved that the course helped me understand what was holding me back from taking the bold steps I wanted to take. I also learned why I perceived situations a certain way and how to stay focused and congruent and break out of the cycle of helplessness and pain I had continued to find myself in. I continue to use the skills that I learned from Carrie’s program and now live a life with less stress and anxiety and more commitment to myself and what I want in life. I recommend that anyone who is looking for answers and support in moving toward a happier, authentic life join Carrie’s Self-Mastery Coaching program.  

– LAURA CASANOVA

Carrie is absolutely incredible! I was recommended by a friend to reach out to her and I’m so glad I did. It’s truly remarkable the impact that speaking with her can have on reaching your goals. I was stuck in a rut and didn’t really know why, but having Carrie provide 100% of her focus, energy and support really helped me get through it. Carrie also helped me process some of the emotions that were holding me back and make concrete action plans each week. The accountability (but without the high stakes pressure) was exactly what I needed. I highly recommend Carrie to everyone interested! I, too, was hesitant at first, but can attest that we would all benefit from someone like Carrie in our life to make sure we reach our potential. 

– TINA GREEN

After many years of thinking about doing it, I finally made the decision to engage a life coach. At the time, I was confused which way was up. After a few years of unexpected events in my life, I had regained some stability, but I was still feeling lost. I wasn’t sure what was next, and I was full of fear, which was holding me back. I was stuck, not making progress in certain areas of my life. I had forgotten how to get connected and listen to who I was and what I wanted. The most devastating for me was that I had lost the ability to trust myself and my individuality. From my first conversation with Carrie, I was elated at the journey on which I was about to embark. 

Carrie brings a warm yet high energy that immediately allows you to feel that you have a trusted confidant on your side who is ready to get you moving forward. She also has a gift for delivering that kind of “tough love” that allows you to really look deep inside, question and challenge that fear, and those negative words and emotions that hold so many of us back from living the lives we are meant to live. With Carrie’s guidance, I’ve come out the other side. I have experienced a shift of coming back to my true self. And I’m carrying with me that amazing feeling that this is just the beginning, and that my future is abundant with opportunity. And when I need them, the right tools and strategies that Carrie has armed me with are available to me to move forward with confidence and in my knowing — always.” 

– JENNIFER FIELDS

Carrie was recommended to me by a friend as an ICF certified coach. I needed some coaching sessions as part of my own coach training. I got so much more than I expected. Carrie’s insight into personality, motivation, and emotional states is exceptional. On numerous occasions she helped my move through blocks that were hindering my ability to move forward in my work and life. I’m happy to recommend Carrie as a coach who gets results but only if you are willing to change to go to the next level of performance. 

– DAVID HUFF

I started working with Carrie about a year ago. I had recently quit my last job, decided on a career change, and was completely unsure of where I was to go from there. I was living in a constant state of fear. I instantly connected with her as she opened up my eyes to the reality I had created for myself. She showed me grace, compassion and told me hard truths that I needed to hear in order to regain confidence and power from within. She has been my confidant and guide throughout the entire career change process, helping me open doors of possibilities I never even thought I had available before, but that had been there all along. She has been guiding me in gaining self-confidence, trusting and believing in myself even against all of the limitations created by my mind. She has taught me necessary tools and perspectives that I can use on a daily basis, so that I feel empowered and become an active participant in creating necessary changes in my life. 

It has not been easy, but with her guidance I have learned to love all parts of myself and to face those parts that I wished to have kept hidden from the world and myself. Words truly don’t express the impact she has had on my life for the better. I am so blessed I felt called to seek her out. I would highly recommend Carrie! If you are looking for true, lasting change in your life, whether professional or personal, you have found your guide! She has an innate talent in knowing what exactly it is you need from each session. She provides life-altering advice and perspectives that allow you to see beyond the limitations of the mind, and become the true co-creator of your life that you have always been. 

– REBECCA BLAYLOCK

I simply cannot recommend Carrie’s services enough. Carrie entered my life during an extremely confusing and difficult time, and has helped me regain a sense of momentum and self that I previously had not known. She provides the perfect mix of motivation and goal setting for the future, as well as a deep understanding and forgiveness for when life throws you curveballs. She is the first person I have found to truly just listen to what I have to say and give me the tools to help me work my way out of my problems by myself. If you are struggling with life’s bigger questions, transition periods, or feeling stagnant or helpless, Carrie can help. 

– ESTHER NEMETHY

Carrie is a gift to inner growth. My life propelled forward working with her and she will be a lifelong resource as I continue to accomplish my goals (starting a new business and writing a book), and dream outside what I thought was possible. 

– MARSENA HOLSOPPLE

Carrie is absolutely an unbelievably talented coach! She’s helped me not only with my dream of being an Entrepreneur but also helped looked at all aspects of my life. I’m vibrating at a higher level and manifesting my BIG DREAMS and Carrie was a very important piece of my journey to this beautiful life I have. 

– KIM ADAMS

With Carrie’s guidance, I overcame things that I didn’t even knew were there. I felt like I was on the right path but I was a bit lost. She helped me find my path, planned out the road to get there and step by step we got to the final destination. She armed me with the confidence to deal with specific situations and showed me to trust myself, always! 

– MARGRIET LINSSEN

Carrie has helped me stand back, access situations and realign myself as I create and design a former business in a ‘new’ country with courage, confidence and self-compassion. Carrie is not only a superb coach creating positive transformations and shifts in my ways of being, but also a gifted and intuitive teacher. I have loved learning new strategies and have gained invaluable insights and accelerated growth. What I have appreciated about Carrie is her compassion, validation and acknowledgement of current life-situation and moving from here with grace. 

– PATTI RISCH

People can over-think and either talk themselves into or out of life coaching. For me, Carrie did a phenomenal job of reminding me in a gentle yet professional way of the solutions I had but hadn’t acted on in years. This time, I was ready to receive the gift. Change came in a very subtle and necessary way of the “homework” she gave. It was exactly what I needed! Carrie’s a great listener and from what I can tell in my experience, can meet people exactly where they’re at. No shame, no horrendous skeletons in the closet that are too painful to look at-Just a very practical and kind soul walking you through whatever’s got you in your own way!!!! 

– MORGAN MANSER

Carrie provided me with the tools and guidance that allowed me to discover what I had been searching for by making small changes and taking action in a way that wasn’t overwhelming. Within a couple of months after my first coaching session with Carrie, I could see real changes in my life and I found passion in something that I plan to gradually turn into a business. I am beyond grateful for what I have gained through her coaching and highly recommend her services to anyone who is lacking the motivation to make changes or take action, and to anyone who is feeling lost or disenchanted. She’s a fantastic coach!

– KRISTIN ELLIS

Carrie raises the bar for other life coaches. She is a professional who embodies authenticity, integrity, spirit and unconditional love. Her coaching services are humbly, yet masterfully offered within a sacred space co-created with you and for you. Should you make the invaluable decision to partner with Carrie as your coach, you’ll surely find yourself enjoying an experience full of self-discovery, empowerment, excitement and growth. You’ll find you’re creating the life you’ve always desired. 

– MICHELLE VIOLETTE

I went into my interaction with Carrie not really sure what to expect, and 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.
