Many of us find ourselves “stuck” in the myriad of choices and paths that our lives may take. We often can see a vision of what we desire, but we need some assistance in making it a reality. I utilize a 3-step process to help with 3 levels of impact. In some cases, we also work in a 3-way partnership. Working with an outstanding coach may be a way to help you get “unstuck,” move forward, and live your vision!

As a client in the life coaching partnership, the ultimate goal is to better understand yourself and where you want to move in life. As your coach, I assist you by actively listening to the longings of your heart, soul, and mind and asking powerful questions that help you achieve a more fulfilling life. Together, we work to help YOU identify and develop your strengths, recognize your potential, discover and reach goals, and choose steps to your future. As a healthy individual, you come to the coaching relationship ready to make change with creative support and encouragement from your coach along your way!

3-Step Process:

Freedom. Focus. Fulfillment.


Often times, we find ourselves stuck because we have consciously or unconsciously closed down important options out of habit, fear, necessity, shame, tiredness, laziness, boredom, etc. It is critical for clients to explore all open options in making wise decisions so that they can experience greater freedom in making necessary changes in life. During our coaching sessions, I will help you explore and reframe options and challenge you to consider avenues that may initially seem unavailable.


Through our coaching conversations and offline work, clients learn to explore their values, mission, goals, and meaning. You will learn to create a personalized filter through which decisions and choices are easier to manage and evaluate. This frees you to focus attention on things that matter rather than feeling bombarded by distractions. You will learn to say YES to the things that matter and NO to things that don’t.


Once you are free and focused, you can live a more fulfilled life. Let’s face it, we are better able to humble ourselves and serve others in our daily life tasks if we understand why we must complete them and the end result of those investments. It is important to regularly revisit this process of freedom, focus, and fulfillment. My goal is to equip you with the tools and habits needed to continue this dynamic process throughout your life.

The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.

3 Levels of Impact:

Individual. Family. Community


Our primary coaching goal is helping you better understand yourself so that you can move from stagnation to transformation. We do this in a variety of ways in our sessions through honest conversation, powerful questions, exercises, values clarification, assessment, etc. Once you learn how to freely explore life’s options and focus on your best path, you become stronger and more confident to venture out and shine in new ways.


All of us desire to create loving, giving, strength-building, and generous families. Sometimes, we neglect the time and care investments needed to build the necessary trust and bonds. Once you define and re-establish your personal values, your transformation naturally spills over to both your immediate and extended family.


As renewed individuals living within robust families, we can share our strengths and vulnerabilities in our neighborhood, workplace, church and world. You will find that during the coaching process, other people will begin asking you what has changed. When you find your passion and purpose and live it out, you will inspire others to do the same.

You are the light of the world--like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.
-Matthew 5:14

3-Way Partnership:

Client. Coach. Holy Spirit

For those of you seeking to honor your Christian faith in the coaching process, we recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit in our coaching time. I invite those Christian clients who desire prayer during or after the session to do so or I can pray for us. In addition, I will ask you questions about how you see your actions and feelings as related to His goal for your life here on earth. For further information about Christian coaching sessions, talk or email directly with FranVan.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of everything that I have told you.
-John 14:26


Overall, my ideal individual clients and groups are READY:

Responsible and accountable for your actions,

Enthusiastic about learning,

Action-oriented and ready to make the changes you identify,

Determined to achieve a fulfilling life,

Yearning for new ways of thinking and possibilities!

Most people can benefit from coaching. I feel called and passionate about working with:

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
-Dalai Lama
