About me

Barbara Deese, CLC

Hi, Thanks for Stopping By…

Certified Life Transformation Coach

I am a seasoned entrepreneur with a 20 year career in management followed by 20 years operating a successful small business. I am also a member of the International Coach Federation, the most recognized association for coaches worldwide, and I am trained and certified by Life Purpose Institute in California.

As your life coach I will partner with you to help you discover your unique gifts and abilities as well as your passions.  I use research conducted by experts in the field of neuroscience and positive psychology, and I implement time-tested assessments and tools successfully used with thousands of clients.

If life has not turned out the way you planned or you find yourself at a crossroads, I will show you how to listen to your inner voice, help you discover your life purpose, and develop strategies to move forward.

Put aside the masks you wear in order to meet the expectations of your boss, your clients, your friends and family, and even yourself.

 

  • Who are you? Really?
  • What were you created to do?
  • What’s holding you back?
  • There’s a new you in view.
  • Let’s get started.

My Approach and Values…

 

I am an overcomer of a lonely and dysfunctional childhood.  I worked my way through college and graduated magna cum laude, married and had a family, had a 20 year career serving children and adults with disabilities, and then launched a small business which is still thriving after nineteen years.  I serve in my church as a servant first, and then as a Bible teacher and prayer warrior.

Then God led me into a life coach training program. As a Certified Life Coach  I seek to use my life experiences, my training, and my God-given abilities to help others find and develop their life purpose.

I would love the chance to serve you in that way.

I Work With Individuals and Groups

Career Discovery

I worked 20 years in management, giving more time and sweat for the betterment of  my employer than to my own family. From there I went on to successfully launch and prosper a small business. As I have continued to grow and develop personally and professionally, I am exploring new frontiers and carving out a new career path. If that resonates with you, call me.

Together we’ll assess your interests, discover your skill set, and identify the career direction or business that fulfills you.

Life Transformation

Feeling stuck, but reluctant to move forward? Afraid of the future because you’re still haunted by the past? Wanting to break out of the mold you’ve been cast in, either by yourself or others?

Take a bold step toward a new you and call me.

“How many success stories do you need to read before writing your own?”  (Ryan Secrest, radio and TV host).  As your life transformation coach I will help you write the script for your own success story and live a life fulfilled.

Workshops

Call today to arrange a workshop for your church, civic organization, or place of employment. Popular topics include:  pushing past fear and anxiety, career search and development, out with old habits/in with the new, personal growth and development, burn-out prevention, finding your life purpose, discovering God’s purpose for your life.
