Choosing the right relationships for you and your desired outcome.

When it’s time to find a coach, most people naturally gravitate toward someone they are comfortable with and feel they can trust. Finding the best possible coach for YOU to work with may take some time and effort but can make all the difference in the world. Selecting the coach most suited to your needs and personality will greatly increase your level of success and satisfaction. Coach Training World is prepared to assist you with this process.

How to find a coach

Decide what type of coaching would best help you meet your goals.
There are many different arenas of coaching to fulfill the various needs of its recipients – life, wellness, business, communications or life transitions, and more. The coaches at Coach Training World are trained in Whole Person Coaching enabling them to assist a diverse clientele with fulfilling their desired outcomes.

Determine what traits are important to you in a coach.
These can be anything from gender and age to professional/life experiences and fee structure. Coaches listed with (WPCC) after their name have attended our full mastery level coach training program and are specialized in the advanced techniques of Whole Person Coaching.

I’m driven to align trailblazers with their natural power and grace to go bigger. It thrills me to support people to succeed from where they are, with the amazingness of who they are, having a big ole ripple effect on the world. Not only do I help people to get out of their own way to thrive but really get behind themselves to make their life or business rock. My wide coaching passions encompass working with individuals and groups as a life and solo-entrepreneur coach as well as those touched by the challenge of cancer. I've been a working as a Professional Whole Person Certified Coach (WPCC) for 7 years, originally trained & certified through Coach Training World and deepening my training by becoming a Certified Cancer Journey Coach in 2014 through the Cancer Journey's Panic to Powerful program.

Illness, death, and struggle have been lifelong transformational teachers for me. On top of personal chronic health challenges, a number of dear friends and close family have been impacted by cancer in a very short period of time in my life. Even with my own great tools as a Hospice volunteer and seasoned coach, I was challenged in a whole new way in the face of this bigness. With what seems like overwhelming challenges, by utilizing the gift of skilled support, I’ve experienced powerful personal transformation and witnessed the same in my clients. I’ve learned firsthand what it means to truly decide to be there for oneself. As a result, I want this level of transformation for every single person that reaches out to be coached by me whether they are a cancer survivor asking what now, an entrepreneur, or seeking support at a transition point in life.

Never too far from nature, telemark skiing, and amazing community, I live between two snow-capped peaks in the abundant Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. I work with clients one-on-one and partner with several organizations to offer regional and national group coaching support. Whether driven by passion or necessity, it’s an honor to support trailblazers to thrive and face the big stuff with grace. Life is too precious to not live like you mean it.

Coaching Bio:

Life Coaching with Energy Psychology is a quality, research-based model of coaching that supports you in exploring and changing a wide range of issues. These include life direction clarity, stress reduction, mood regulation, and trauma healing. Clients report benefits in relationships, greater individuation-i.e. perspective through life’s challenges-as well as overall satisfaction.

Life Coaching with Energy Psychology strives for body-mind integration through mindfulness theory and discussion, and via modern Eastern trends.

It may include a chakra analysis of your subtle energy field, and/or astrological computations. Combined with the most current psychotherapeutic and neuroscience findings, the result is self-awareness, leading to more positive and healthy life choices.
For Carl Jung, (the energy of) yoga represented a rich storehouse of inner experience and of the individuation process in particular.
~ Sonu Shamdasani

I am a certified professional coach, with a master’s degree in psychotherapy. I specialize in life guidance, trauma repair and relational issues, and have been in private practice in the field of energy psychology since 1997. I have had extensive training in holistic coaching, as well as subtle anatomy therapy. My early career traces back to arts administration in New York City.

Feeling like you were made for something bigger? Want to make changes but struggle getting started? Is your mind running with possibilities unsure how to get things started? Does happiness and fulfillment seem to be only something you read in quotes lately? If you have answered yes to any of these questions then starting a coaching relationship can catapult your life from reading inspirational quotes to living them!

If you are at a crossroads in life and confused about which way to go I can help you find your path. Are struggling with family issues, unsatisfying relationships with others or yourself, not feeling fulfilled at work or looking into new ideas of spirituality and wellness? Beneath that noise inside you, is there a voice saying “it's time for change”. Change can be scary and this fear keeps us stuck existing rather than truly living. If you are ready to pull back the curtain and see what gifts you have to offer the world, let's work together to create the changes you desire and to truly live your happiness!

My name is Tara Stricker, I have 20 years of experience in the Human Services industry, empowering individuals to make changes in their lives. I am no stranger to the complexities and challenges that come along with making sustainable changes. One thing I have noticed through the years is a supportive relationship and a positive, empowered outlook are an essential asset necessary for making change. Working with a wide variety of populations I have helped clients with personal growth. I have worked alongside clients helping them to remove roadblocks that have hindered them from creating positive life, taught skills to become a self-advocate and developed strategies to maintaining the balanced life they desire. I have also taught values, strategies for coping with anger and ways to deal with opposition. I have celebrated their success and regrouped after the failures and through it all I am still always amazed at the strength of the human spirit.

In my personal life I have also faced challenges. When my husband suddenly became ill and passed away, I was at a crossroads. When he passed he was left with one big regret; that he had not risked and followed his dreams. This inspired me to take the path I had always dreamed of and planned on living...one day. Through this loss I learned why wait; today is the best day to start!

I am passionate about people and look forward to supporting you in choosing your path making the changes you desire to create the life you always dreamed of! Today IS your someday!

Hello! I work with clients on many levels and topics. My background is in psychology, coaching, and branding and identity.

Coaching Bio:

Everybody gets stuck. If you feel trapped in work that doesn't fully engage you or, even worse, prevents you from advancing in your career or enjoying your personal life, you are not alone. Far from it, in fact. Initiating change is one of the hardest things we ever do. But to realize your highest potential and live a meaningful, fulfilling life, it’s also utterly essential.

You want the freedom to be who you are and enjoy your precious time doing what you love. But it’s easy to get trapped by a paycheck – a financial necessity that can make it hard to see the escape route, let alone the road ahead.

If this sounds familiar, it’s time you made a change.

Becoming an influential entrepreneur is about initiating big changes for yourself and your clients. But to achieve the most empowering, sustainable results, both types of change require a unique set of skills and interpersonal tools that elicit the best from you and those you serve. Easy to learn, these skills can be applied to an endless range of personal and professional applications – a ripple effect that improves every aspect of an individual’s life.

That’s where I come in.

As a three-decade veteran in the business of change, my journey began in the world of marketing and sales. Leveraging my business expertise and life experience, I transitioned into the holistic coaching arena after discovering my deepest passion: helping others achieve their best possible life – one of their choosing.

I am a serial entrepreneur and a Master Credentialed Coach (MCC). Having traveled the startup road more than five times myself, I specialize in helping business owners who operate at every level. Working side by side, we effectively organize and manage their enterprise through tools that simplify time-consuming processes and personalize their brand. I also take great pride in serving as the business owner’s BFF, especially when it comes to combating the fear and resistance that inevitably creep in as someone navigates the breakthrough pathway to success.

If you’re a business owner, my expertise can help you attract those who need you the most, convert those leads into clients, and leverage your individual talents (some of which you may not even be aware of!). The result? You’ll be able to make a powerful, quantifiable difference in the lives and businesses of your clients through a system that can be tailored to any individual, niche or process.

Unlike physical goods, there’s an extra layer to marketing intangibles. I am no stranger to selling future results. In fact, it’s one of my superpowers. It’s also a vital skill set when your business includes intangibles such as coaching or other forms of personal transformation.

My business experience and marketing background have enabled me to strategically help hundreds of luminaries, holistic healers, and soul-preneurs exactly like you. Through my consultation and support, these individuals have successfully created and marketed their products, services and programs to millions of people around the globe. You’ll find a few examples in these in my testimonials and case studies on my website.
***What you’ll gain by working with me***
Becoming an entrepreneur is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have, both financially and emotionally. Running your own business can bring you great joy. It also offers some of the most valuable spiritual lessons available (not the least of which is learning patience with new technology).

If you are looking for a smart, devoted business buddy who offers comprehensive online training programs, private mastermind groups, and one-on-one support, you’re search may be nearing its end. I could be the business strategist and marketing master you've been looking for. We'll have to talk in person to find out if that’s true for you!

Working with me, you’ll learn how to book yourself solid and fill those workshop seats with your ideal clients simply by being your most magnetic self! If you’re up for the long-haul, you’ll also be writing books, building your tribe, and creating online programs, passive income streams, and workshops of your very own.

I can show you how to take your existing skill set or brand and monetize it through every available channel. Care to join me?

Coaching Bio:

This is your life. Your story. The journey to your destiny.

I invite you to take a moment and reflect on where you find yourself in this season of life. Are you satisfied? Living your destiny? Unapologetically embracing all of who you are? Or... Do you feel lost? Frustrated? Confused as to who you are and what you stand for? Limited by your career? Stuck in achieving your goals? Paralyzed or overwhelmed with what’s next in your journey?
If these questions resonate with you, I encourage you to give yourself the opportunity to envision a different story, one where you:

Embrace all of who God created you to be
Experience the freedom of being truly connected
Discover your own voice and the power it holds in the world
Generate changes in your life to support your personal and professional goals
Step boldly into your life’s purpose

How does that story sound?
You only have one life to live. Your destiny awaits you. So, are you ready to break through the frustrations in your life and the limitations in your career?

My name is Eva Cruz Pena and I'm a destiny designer for brave Latinas who are ready to reclaim their power, step boldly into their purpose, and voice their truth from a grounded identity in God.

My 15 years of education and training in nursing, theology, military chaplaincy and mental health, along with my life’s experiences (a few of the big ones are: moving to a different country to pursue my career, navigating the intricacies of being a Latina, balancing being a woman, wife, mother, friend, entrepreneur and artist) allow me to understand the dynamics of the human nature; therefore allowing me to coach from a holistic perspective.

My mission to thrive with passion, compassion, humor and style is evident in my approach as a coach:
I am passionate about empowering women to live grounded in their identity, fully connected to all parts of their being and using their voices to step boldly into their destiny enacting positive change in themselves and their environment.
My compassion shows through as I create a safe space that allows clients to look at areas of their lives that they want to change, enhance or awaken.
I believe humor is key to having a joy-filled heart, therefore; I work with my clients in finding ways to stay positive and enjoy the little things in life that bring joy and make souls smile.
My style is unique to my personality: caring, empathic, brave, vivacious, fun, creative, beautiful, grounded, strong, intuitive, passionate, spiritual, and unapologetic. It shows in the coaching relationship as I actively listen for the client’s strengths and reflect them back in order to create the awareness for the client to realize she has all the essential tools to succeed and self-innovate.

So, what are you waiting for? Any of what I’ve mentioned above speaks to you? Schedule your free 30 minute consultation via phone, Skype/FaceTime or in person if you are in Portland, OR.
I am available Tuesdays- Fridays from 10:00- 2:00pm (PST). If those times and days don’t work - contact me and I’ll do my best to accommodate your schedule.

Your doubts and fears are holding you back from producing your artistic dream. Your audience awaits, and you are the one holding up the show. You are frustrated that your signature project still sits on the back burner, that you can’t seem to take those first steps to realizing it or can’t seem to sustain the momentum. You dance between that longing for your creativity to be seen, celebrated and cherished by others, and undermining yourself with doubt that you could be successful.

Your dreams want to be exercised and shared. The world is missing out on your gifts, because of these nagging thoughts and the indecision that they bring. You keep putting it off coming up with a million excuses: You don’t have the time. You don’t have the energy, the money or the support. You fear that if you start this project and fail that that would be worse than not starting it at all.

Don't keep your audience waiting. It is time to give your project wings.

Let me help you bring that artistic dream to life. The world is waiting for your input. Take the first step by setting up an introductory coaching session to start living your dream.

Let me support you in making a plan to bring your project to life.

When I’m not coaching, I love to share the latest research about self-confidence building skills cabaret shows. Over the past two years I have created, performed in and produced 6 cabaret shows. I am currently writing a one-person play about a journey to confidence and living my own brilliance. It includes my struggles with valuing myself, binge watching Netflix, cookie addictions, avoidance shopping, accepting my emotions, believing I am worthy of my dreams and finding the courage and resources to follow them.

I also teach Zumba Fitness, give Portland Walking Tours and dance the Blues, Swing and Argentine Tango. I graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelors Degree in Sociology and minors in French and Gender Studies. I’ve worked for Adoption NW and NW Surrogacy law firms, Portland Women’s Crisis Line and a preschool for families with children at risk for abuse. I received training at Coach Training World in Portland, OR. I help struggling artists to take action steps to bring their creative projects to life. By building confidence in being their authentic self, they create a satisfying and financially sustainable career.

What are your creative dreams? I’d love to hear from you.

Welcome to the pasture, where the grass is greener because we water it. (Unless you live in California and are in the middle of a sever drought. In that case, brown is the new green baby!)

My name is Anna Acuña and I'm the Fulfillment Coach for you—the Ambitious Professional in your 20s/30s seeking work and a life that sets your soul on fire.

I'm passionate about inspiring and supporting you in the pursuit of your passions.

Let me guess, you're bored out of your mind and wish you were doing something more fulfilling with your life. Am I right? Chances are you're good at what you do and make a decent living doing it, but find yourself drained, unfulfilled and uninspired. Do you feel like you're just going through the motions? Do you have all this potential brewing inside you waiting to be tapped (like a delicious craft beer), but either don't know what to do with it or find yourself hesitant to take action? Perhaps you already know your passion and need help figuring out how to pursue it. Or maybe you have no clue what your passion is and want to discover it. If you're anything like me, then you have multiple passions and no idea which one you should pick and commit to.

Sound familiar? I know what it's like to feel lost, confused and paralyzed by options.

I also know how to clear the fog, find clarity, direction and focus around what I want to pursue in my life and take deliberate action.

When I graduated college with a B.S. in Kinesiology and minor in Theatre, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life in terms of a career. All I really cared about or felt fulfilled doing was lifting the spirits of others and encouraging them to pursue the things they were passionate about. There wasn't exactly a career out there I knew of designed for such an abstract "skill set" though. Besides that, all I knew was I was passionate about many different things and wanted a career that would allow me to do a variety of things. So, despite the very real and looming burden of student loan debt, family expectation, social expectation and the pressure to settle down and find a "real job", I held off in search of a career that set my soul on fire. A career that not only allowed me to connect with and support others in the pursuit of their passions, but also provided the creative fulfillment, sense of purpose and freedom I desired, especially in terms of my time and money.

I've never been one to do things for money. Instead of choosing a job to just pay the bills, I pursued my passions to see which one would be a fulfilling career option. I trusted my instincts, let my passions guide me and tapped into the abundance of potential I possessed. I pursued and enriching collection of work experiences and took advantage of opportunities I never thought possible before.

Some of those opportunities included working in the entertainment industry, teaching and education, becoming a certified Yoga Instructor, learning web design and working for an e-commerce scuba company.

In the pursuit of my passions, I discovered what matters most to me and started crafting an intentional vision of my life. Along the way, I came across Life Coaching and began to contemplate the idea of starting my own business as an entrepreneur. To be completely honest, the idea of starting my own business scared the shit out of me and the thought of turning into a "salesy, bottom-line crazed douchebag" was a huge turn off—you know what I'm talking about. So, I spent another 3 years mulling the idea over while working for other people hoping to find my dream job. Eventually, it became undoubtedly clear that the life I sought was one of my own making and on my own terms.

Pursuing my passions led me directly to the work I had been looking for all along; life as a Wild & Free entrepreneur!

So let me ask you...what are you passionate about? Would you like to pursue it?
Pursuing your passions is the key to creating a life that sets your soul on fire. When you do the things you love, work becomes a fulfilling, energizing and worthwhile use of your time that allows you to create, innovate, make a profound difference in the world, and live your life to the fullest. It boosts your health and all aspects of your being—mind, body, and spirit.

If your instincts tell you to pursue your passions, then trust your gut and tap into your boundless potential. As your coach, I will guide you through the process of discovering and pursuing your passions, so you can create a life that sets your soul on fire.

Follow me and soon you will be Wild & Free!

Do you feel deep in your beautiful soul that your work is
- unfulfilling, and lacking meaning and purpose
- draining your energy and squeezing the life (and soul) out of you, while
- affecting your confidence and positive outlook on life?

And do you find yourself in the wonderfully liberating stage of thinking about your next career move, but are unsure of what to do next and how to move beyond your fear to action?

Do you need a little inspiration and guidance?

Do you want to take that first step toward your soul’s purpose, but need some inspiration and the guidance of someone who’s been where you are and who’s soul is thriving?

As a coach, I guide and support professional women in their 40s and 50s, who are at a crossroads in their career, to find their soul’s path in their work, so they can feel whole, truly be their authentic self and live with renewed confidence, passion and energy.

It may help you to know how I got here. Corporate Vice President, Strategic Consultant, non-profit Director of Operations, small business founder and chocolatier, and now coach. I have made many BIG work transitions in my career looking for my soul’s purpose and I am my own best client.

I know how hard it is to take that first step to leave a job, stride confidently into a new career, or design and create a business of your own. I’ve been there. It can be daunting, scary and even paralyzing, but it doesn’t have to be.

If you’d like a companion and guide on your journey of discovery, design and realization of a soul-fulfilling career, one that has purpose and passion, and is authentic to who you are and who you are becoming, I am that coach.

Does finding your soul’s path sound right and true and beneficial for you?

If it does, then join me on a journey towards your soul’s path, and you will
- Discover your unique gifts, skills and strengths
- Get clear about your soul’s path and feel aligned with it
- Have renewed energy and feel passionate about life again
- Feel a sense of wholeness as you live into your authentic self
- Have the confidence and inner resources to take action
- Receive your own Soulscape –landscape of your soul of how to be, what to do, and what you need to reach your goal and live into your soul's path

Are you and your partner on different pages when it comes to finances or children?

Relationships, no matter how strong, have their share of challenges.  And that’s not a bad thing.  Often times we just need some new tools and techniques to navigate through them.

Inside our workshops and private coaching sessions you’ll find:

New listening and communication skills will help initiate more constructive conversations.
Learning each others values around money and finances will help you discover why you make your financial decisions

We have been married 28 years saying “I do” at 19 and having twin boys at 21.  There were times that we worked opposite shifts to support our family, often only seeing each other in passing. Communication was almost non-existent.

We faced major moves, leaving family and friends to take a job.  The job wasn't quite as advertised causing Bob serious health issues and putting major strain on our finances.

By this time our relationship was in shambles.  A short separation forced us to take a hard look at our marriage.   We agreed our relationship was important to us so we tried again.

Things have not been perfect.

Bob worked 2 hours away from home for over a year.  It meant Holly was left to parent alone the majority of the time.

Holly lost her job just a few months after being offered a promotion.  We ended up losing our home because of it.

We have struggled, fought, and thought it was all over.  We pushed through the obstacles and have come out the other side stronger.

We want to help you!  Offering you the tools you need and kind of support that let¹s you figure things out for yourself.   We believe in the possibility of real & lasting love for anyone who strives for it.  Let’s work together to help you create your Miracle Marriage.

Emily Shutt, ACC, WPCC
Company Name: Umoya Institute
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Coaching Bio:

Emily is an ICF-credentialed coach who started her practice in 2015 with a focus on financial literacy and wellness with women and partnered couples. She has been featured in multiple publications and works privately with individuals and couples on a referral basis for financial coaching. More information about financial coaching can be found at emilyshutt.com.

Emily's focus as a coach shifted in 2017 after the sudden passing of her youngest brother, Thomas. As she began to navigate life after loss, she soon recognized the glaring need for a refreshed approach to spirituality and healthy grief expression in the modern age.

Umoya Institute was publicly launched in 2019 from a calling to reconnect people in reliable, meaningful ways with their departed loved ones. Our loved ones are always reaching out to us, and we only need to learn to listen and receive their messages. We can learn to access this dialogue anytime, anywhere, and feel deeply connected to our loved ones who’ve transitioned.

At Umoya, we seek to heal the divide between the physical and eternal world, in a way that’s practical and accessible for people with “normal” lives. Often it seems like you have to choose between being either “fully woo-woo”, with crystals in your pocket and a medium on speed dial if you want to connect with your loved one, or a staunch “non-believer” who is afraid that if you even entertain the idea that your loved one might live on after death, people will either think you’re nuts, or you’ll end up feeling disappointed or betrayed if you try to connect.

It’s possible to have a meaningful connection with your departed loved ones, without always relying on an intermediary like a medium or past-life regression therapist, even if you’ve always believed you “just don’t have that ability” that others do. You can connect in dreams. You can learn to recognize signs. You can learn to have a dialogue in waking life, and hear your loved one’s voice again. You can learn to feel them with you, supporting you. You can learn to quiet your mind and let your intuition guide you to the messages your loved ones want you to hear. You can learn to live a meaningful, authentic life that honors your loved one’s memory.

Emily draws on personal experience with grief and spiritual development, her training in Past Life Regression (PLR) and Life Between Life Regression (LBL), Reiki Master attunement, MBSR training and coach training (holding the ACC credential with the ICF and WPCC certification with CTW) to support clients in developing a tailored approach to navigating life after loss and rebuilding spiritual connection in an authentic way.
