I have already written a review which I sent September 13. I want to also post these endorsements. Thank you
Carrie's insightful and bold honesty, her compassionate nature, and her depth of experience and skill as my coach has profoundly served me at some of the most challenging as well as expansive times in my life. I am so grateful for having her as a partner to assist me in moving through some difficult situations — empowered, and with learning and grace. She's also a fantastic partner for when you are ready to create more of what you want in your life. Carrie is someone who walks her talk, and is committed to her own growth and living an inspired authentic life.
"One day, my wife of 25 years came home from work and told me the following words: 'I'm not happy. I don't love you and I want a divorce.' I was devastated, my world shattered, and the course of my new life was charted. I didn't want that new life. I wanted my old life back. As with all good husbands, I attempted to rectify the marriage by grasping at any service that would help me save my family, which consisted of my wife, daughter, and son. No one helped me. All that I knew and had worked for was taken from me in a matter of thirty days. I was a stay-at-home father, undergraduate student, and part-time paralegal for 3 years of my life. I cared for my family and helped my wife with her career so she was able to get a prosperous job in the health care industry (essentially a role reversal). I was 44 years old when we separated and I wanted my life to be over. I cried every day, lost weight, and waited for the day when my failure to eat would inevitably take its toll on my body. I hoped that one night I would go to sleep and not wake up, not have to face the pain and sadness of my life. Then, I was introduced to Carrie Doubts, owner of Life's Next Chapter Coaching. At our first meeting, Carrie assessed my situation with caring and skill. I felt like I was with a loving friend who understood what I was going through. Carrie never gave up on me, even when I wanted to. She supported me through the divorce and my grief, allowed me the dignity of my process, gave me a shoulder to cry on, and the ability of channeling my anger through constructive means. It has been six years since that divergence in my life and, thanks to Carrie, I embrace my new life and pursuing my Master's Degree in criminal justice . Carrie is simply the best at what she does. I am a better person, a survivor of life's lessons, and my heart is nearly healed.”

About me

Research shows that the average amount of time it takes for a person to "recover" from a significant loss is 5-8 years. That's too long to suffer. Whether we willingly embrace it or not, change is part of life. Utilizing a potential-based coaching approach, I work with clients experiencing big life transitions (relationships, career, health) to assist them in navigating through the pain and uncertainty so that they can discover new purpose and meaning in life.

I help you create the life you want to live on the other side of your grief.

I created my Rebuilding Your Life After Loss Program, a proven-effective nine-step process for reconnecting with your heart, reclaiming your power, and re-aligning with your purpose to create your life's next chapter. In addition to individual and group coaching, I lead classes and facilitate workshops in topics from Work/Life Balance to Grief Recovery. I also offer Virtual Divorce Support Group meetings through Journey Beyond Divorce.

As a Divorce Coach, I partner with mediators, attorneys, and financial professionals to better support their clients in going through the necessary legal and financial processes of divorce with calmness and clarity. This helps everyone to obtain the best possible results out of what usually is a highly stressful situation.

I also partner with HR Executives to support employees experiencing grief and loss by providing educational experiences, workshops, and consultations.

My Philosophy of Care

My journey to do this work began when my husband of thirteen years and I suddenly divorced. I found it difficult to “just move on” and “get over it”. I was in excruciating pain and I knew it wasn’t going to go away overnight. However, I also knew that I needed to learn from this experience so I could avoid repeating my mistakes in the future. I felt compelled to create something meaningful and beautiful out of this pain, so I immersed myself in self-development and personal growth and got my Master of Arts in Spiritual Psychology as the first step on my journey to becoming a wellness professional.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Clients feel heard, seen, understood and leave their first visit feeling hopeful about their future and confident in their capabilities to make it come about.

"Carrie is a deeply grounded master-level listener. She has a way of listening then diagraming or drawing the essence of each of our sessions. I have a visual plan to return to in the course of tracking improvements and making changes."

"She helped me lift out of the crippling negative inner dialogue that I would sometimes get into and learn to accept and love myself no matter what."

My Inspiration

A lot of people struggle with the idea of investing in a coach. They say, I don’t have time or money for this. And this is the second biggest mistake I see people making all the time. The truth is, you’re going to spend money on your situation, no matter what.

You’re going to spend time on this that you’d rather not have to. All that is going to happen. You don’t realize the amount of money and time you’ll be wasting without working with a coach. If you have a coach to help you navigate through this, and stay on course through the whole process, you’re going to save thousands of dollars and peace of mind.

Some people decide to work with a therapist when they are going through a major life transition (like bereavement, divorce, illness, etc.) because their insurance will pay for it. When I talk with them and ask how effective it was, I often get a shrug and a “not very.”

I have nothing against therapy. Therapy is beneficial for many things - for dealing with trauma and other psychological disorders and for processing the past. From the perspective of creating a transformation, therapy is not a great choice. You can get there, but it can take a LONG time.

Therapy is focused on diagnosing mental disorders and figuring out what’s wrong with you. Therapy is often not effective for your kind of situation because there is nothing wrong with you that needs fixing. You just need help to get through the transition you are in to your new beginning.

A coach's job is to help you create the vision for your future, strategize how you'll get there, and help you stay on the plan. My job is to help you stay connected with who you are, and why you are here and what you really want. And to get you there as quickly and painlessly as possible. That’s why my clients really love this process.

Carrie is wonderful! She has such a grounded and calm nature and deeply listens to be able to help you work through your struggles. I felt her sincerity from my first conversation with her. Her knowledge, professionalism and experience is invaluable. I recommend her with 5 stars!
Carrie is a wonderful, talented and experienced Coach. She leads with compassion and truly listens and hears what is going on for her client. Carrie is skilled at moving her client through any transition with ease and an empowering view.
“The hardest thing I have ever done was to deal with the thought of my marriage ending in divorce. Being married for twenty years and having struggled for at least four years to try and see the marriage together is how we came to work with Carrie. We had tried marriage therapy, individual therapy, books, retreats, you name it! Nothing worked to resolve our conflicts or help us see a way forward without each other. The first thing that Carrie asked us when we began our work was: “What do you want to get out of these sessions?” We both answered “Clarity.” We want to know how to proceed. What followed was a series of sessions in which we explored the good, the bad, and the ugly until we came out on the other side with a clear picture finally. We knew what we needed to do, and how we needed to do it in a way that is for the best of our family as well as ourselves. All the way Carrie carried us in a loving, supportive, decisive, and clear path. She held a safe space for us to be open and vulnerable and guided us to find the inner strength we had forgotten was there. We couldn’t have done this with out her and having her by our side though this journey was the most valuable resource we could ever have in such an important time. Thank you again Carrie!
I have known Carrie for many years: first as a member of the faculty where I was a student of Spiritual Psychology, then as a classroom assistant, and finally as the lead assistant for the same program. I witnessed and respected her leadership and loving professional guidance as she related with the students. Just over six years ago, I was most upset when I arrived for the class weekend. I had just spent several days with my adult daughter and was sharing with the other assistants my upset about my time with her. Carrie offered to spend time with me after the weekend. I then began a Coaching Agreement with Carrie. We have been working together since then, and it is my intention to continue with Carrie forever. I know that each time we meet, I have the unique opportunity to share whatever is happening in my life--my joys as well as my troubles. I treasure and look forward to each and every session. I am always aware of her skill as a listener, questioner, guide and support. Although we have I sessions on the phone, I feel as if she is sitting by my side. I feel her loving presence as I laugh, cry, vent, and freely express myself and my emotions. As I write this, my eyes fill with tears. I am remembering my many sessions with Carrie, always aware of her loving presence with me. I am inspired by her coaching skill, her ability to have me physically change my perspective, and her ability to ask just the right questions. I am impressed by her wealth of knowledge and recommendation of many resources. I am grateful for her sensitivity to my feelings and her encouragement to my freely expressing them.
I have known Carrie for a few years and have had the benefit of being coached by her. Carrie always listens so beautifully, offers slowed down, insightful coaching and is extremely loving. She is very skilled at seeing right to the heart of the situation. Carrie can sit in the range of feelings and bear witness with empathy, compassion and wisdom.
I hired Carrie as an Executive Coach and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. My life has been transformed personally and professionally and I contribute it to the loving, consistent support I receive from Carrie every other week. Carrie's coaching skills are top-notch. Carrie creates a sense of safety, so you can share with her what is truly going on for you and she listens with an empathetic heart. She knows how to bring out the best in people and respects where I am when I talk with her. Through the coaching, Carrie has taught me how to ask for what I want and supported me in reframing irrational beliefs I was holding against myself that were blocking me from advancing professionally. I also wanted to start an exercise program and didn't know how to go about it. Through Carrie's encouragement and holding me to keeping my word, I now work with a personal trainer every week. I feel so much better on the inner and outer! Other wins I have had by working with Carrie are: My salary increased by over 20%. I went from being a Manager to a Vice President in my current job position. I'm less judgmental against myself and others. I've learned leadership communication skills that assist me in communicating with my staff authentically as well as empowering them at the same time. I dream BIG and take action toward manifesting my dreams. I no longer hold myself back. Working with Carrie is worth every penny and more. You will see a return on your investment very quickly either financially and/or within your heart. Your dreams and your heart will thank you for the decision you made to work with her. I'm in gratitude every day for the investment I made for myself working with Carrie.."
