Break Out of the Box

You already love helping others. You want to do more but are not sure how.

Or you are frustrated watching those you try to help go back into destructive cycles.


You wonder if there's a better way.

No more wearing yourself out trying to be everything to everybody. You don't even have to have all the right answers someone needs to live their best life.

You just have to listen.

You just have to add CARE (Compassionate Accountability with Respect and Empathy).

By adding the right tools to understand, relate, and empower others, you will:

Know for sure that the positive impact you're making lasts

Witness real change and results in the lives you help

Help break cycles of dependency and habits that prohibit one's life's purpose

Empower others the way you dreamt you could.

Become a certified CARE-Ready® Life Coach.

Interested in your whole team or group becoming CARE-Ready® Life Coaches?

Hear from some CARE-Ready Life Coach alums.

I wear a lot of hats - I'm a certified peer specialist and instructor, a mentor, and a suicide prevention gatekeeper. I'm an assistant counselor training to be a counselor, I work in the schools as a prevention intervention specialist, and I hold groups at the county jail. But it's the hat of CARE Ready Life Coach that ties all the others together for me. Being a life coach is not about giving others the answers but helping and allowing them to find it for themselves. It's about listening. I didn't know or have that before.

Ron P., Assistant Counselor
