Are you a WOMAN who wants to transform your life and relationships, find emotional or spiritual healing, and increase your passion for life?
Why a Life Coach?
God wants you to live your best LIFE now!
We all need help sometimes, especially when it comes to identifying obstacles and creating a plan to overcome them. God did not create us to live alone, but in relationship with those who help us become the best version of ourselves.
Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
Most of us have friends or family that desire to support and encourage us, but many times our support networks are working through their own issues or simply lack the experience or the perspective to help you achieve your breakthrough.
That’s where a life coach comes in.
Whether your goal is to be more confident, heal wounds from your past, fulfill your heart’s passions, or anywhere in between, a good life coach can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and assist you in finding the motivation and inspiration to overcome obstacles that have held you back.
Why Invest in Yourself?
Do you feel defeated? Struggle with a lack of direction? Feel like you aren’t making progress in your life? Do you struggle to identify your next steps?
I can help! It’s time to gain clarity, heal from past hurts, and get the individualized support you’re seeking so you can identify easy to follow, simple steps to transform your life into the life you truly desire and deserve.Imagine waking up in the morning feeling joy, hope, inspiration, motivation, and gratitude.
Though this may feel unattainable to you right now, this can ABSOLUTELY be your reality!
How I Can Help
My goal is to enable my clients to gain a clear direction and focus for their lives and to achieve quantifiable success in their relationships as well as their own emotional, spiritual, and mental health. Are you a WOMAN who wants to transform your life and relationships, find emotional and spiritual healing, and increase your passion for life?
If you answered yes, then the good news is my coaching services may be for you!
My 3-month coaching program is not a one size fits all, it’s about personally helping YOU to heal and become the best version of yourself, so you can live your best life NOW! Together, we will identify negative thoughts, beliefs, and patterns that have kept you stuck for years. For many of us, these beliefs and patterns stem from various forms of trauma that are trapped in our hearts and bodies. Together, we will build the tools you need to move forward with hope and confidence.
Coaching is not a quick fix, and our work together will not block every negative thought or feeling, but you will learn to recognize them when they occur and shift your mindset and feelings to align with God’s truth.
I am NOT a licensed therapist or mental health practitioner; I am a Certified Trauma and Resilience Life Coach.
You may be asking yourself, “What the heck is resilience?” Resilience is simply the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties.
It may seem strange to have the words trauma AND resilience in the same title, but the truth is, trauma often presents opportunities for resilience, though we do not always recognize it. Many times, we need someone to help us see our God-given strengths and ways we have chosen life when we could have chosen the opposite.
Because I am not a licensed therapist, I can charge much less.
A typical mental health practitioner charges upwards of $150 per 50-minute session.
I charge $75 per 75-minute session.
With a lot of hard work and dedication, on both our parts, you will get the breakthrough you are looking for through my 3-month coaching program.

I have two kids, a boy and a girl, and I’m married to the most handsome and hilarious guy on the planet. I have a bachelor’s degree from Pacific Lutheran University and a Trauma and Resilience Life Coaching certification from Arizona Trauma Institute. I am an author, a speaker, and a pastor.
My husband and I have pastored at several churches over the past 20 years, and I LOVE helping women get breakthrough in areas they feel stuck!
Sadly, like many children, I was sexually abused as a young child, and from that point forward I lived bound by fear, shame, control, and unforgiveness. It was not until I learned that the Lord’s love is stronger that I found breakthrough. I share more in depth about my healing journey from Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) in my newest book, A Garden in the Ashes: Rebuilding Your Heart and World After Trauma.
I am who I am today because of God’s healing love in my life. My greatest breakthroughs came through my personal experiences with Jesus and through learning how to love others and experience their love in return.
My greatest passion is to help women overcome their fears and traumas, and embrace the freedom found in their God Given purpose.
“Lauren’s questions probed into areas of pain and brought pictures to my mind, giving me huge insight into the dynamic going on inside of me. Her questions connected dots that took me back to early childhood trauma with roots leading to the struggles I’m currently dealing with. Lauren’s presence, empathy and insight were just what I needed to process and get to a place of hope. I can now move forward with these tools and a new courage and strength.”
“I began my coaching session thinking I had already figured out my goals on how to make more time for and space for myself, but I was still feeling overwhelmed. In Just one hour, Lauren helped me narrow my goals down much farther to a completely manageable first two steps. I was really surprised how much her process helped clarify what I really needed and wanted with regards to taking care of myself. I felt a wight off my shoulders. Lauren was an incredible listener and I felt very cared for as I went through each sept of the process. I’ll definitely be signing up for more sessions!”
"My session with Lauren went extremely well. She listened closely and was able to pick out the important details from the many things I said. I'm a verbal processor so I talk a lot and people can easily get a little lost in my words but she pulled out all the relevant parts. She validated my feelings and areas of struggle. The suggestion of closing the door on my relationship with a toxic family member was liberating. Hearing from a trusted person somehow allowed me to feel I had "permission" to close that door once and for all without shame or guilt. She offered practical advice and steps toward my goal of healing and transformation."
"My session with Lauren was very productive! On a scale of 1-10, I was at a 10 feeling stressed and chaotic and by the end I felt like I was at a 7. We made a plan to address my most pressing issues that feels manageable, doable, and encouraging. I appreciated that she was really empathetic and actively listened. She asked questions that made me think and helped us stay on task. I liked that she asked if I was a “feelings person” and explored that because when I can attach a feeling it’s more motivating for me than just making a logical plan. I don’t always like having to make a plan because it pushes me into chaotic feelings but in the end it helps me feel less stressed and more at peace."
