Imagine the shape of a funnel, and at the upper end is your most magnificent life, full of fulfillment, purpose, satisfaction, happiness, joy and love. Now imagine the other end, constricted and narrow, lacking vibrancy and texture, where you often find yourself in the grips of “just going through the process,” “showing up for another day,” “things are just good enough,” repetitive thinking and negative feelings, such as anger, guilt, anxiety, and fear. The difference between these two end points:
Your entire life is based on how you perceive the world. That is a fact. So it is natural to say that how you perceive the world manifests in how satisfying and fulfilling you find your work, your relationships, your past-times, your finances, how you communicate, to how you interact with every person in your world. Your internal reality (your thinking) is the largest predictor of everything you are and you create in your life (external reality). So whether you are seeking coaching to successfully manage a transition, find a satisfying career, increase your abundance in various dimensions of your life, detach from the relationship you feel is toxic but are unable to disengage, learn how to manage your time better, to navigating interpersonal boundaries and relationships with greater honesty and dexterity, it all comes back to your level of awareness.
A masterful coach is going to help you rise up in that funnel from a place where choices and solutions are limited and finite, from a place where you often feel “stuck, blocked, disengaged, disconnected,” to one where there is more varied perceptions, more ability to effect change in your world, and more ability to connect with yourself in a way that is tangible: you are happier, you are more joyful, you are in a place of freedom in your thinking habits, and your external reality will now reflect that inner change. The career change become satisfying and financially sound, the relationship becomes connected and alive, the goals you wished to attain but could never reach become accessible: in short, what felt so challenging and unwieldly becomes pliable and realistic. What was out of reach is now in your hands. What you yearned for is now part of your reality. How did this all come about? YOU changed.
Close your eyes and for just a moment imagine how different your life could be if you were aware of the choices you make every day, unconscious and habitual, that keep you locked in place, stagnant, unmoving, unchanging. Now, what if through a powerful process of self-reflection, growth and accountability, you had the power to CHANGE YOUR CHOICES, and be responsible to them? Imagine what it would feel like to trust your decisions, your values, and to create a fulfilling life around what you wanted (instead of what you thought you wanted). Imagine authentically choosing the kind of work in which you wanted to invest yourself and your life energy, the way your relationships would transform and ignite by you waking up to how you contribute and shape them. Imagine a day where you are not run by your brain, your thoughts, but instead one where you are in dominion of your thought processes and you easily choose joyful and peaceful thoughts instead of chaotic and repetitive thought cycles?
Can you imagine what this experience would feel like?!
One of the very first things you will do with Carrie is get clear on how you are showing up in your life, what is working and what is not working. We build upon this clarity in the creation of what you wish to consciously create moving forward. In collaboration, you and Carrie will examine both your internal world (your thinking) and your external world (career, family, relationships, finances) to determine where the changes you seek need to occur. Trying to solve your problems from the same limited perspective is a recipe for failure. With coaching, you will quickly learn effective tools and strategies to overcome both short and long-term challenges. You will set measurable, realistic, and attainable goals each session in order to experience results faster than you thought possible.
Carrie’s coaching is holistic and integrative; she coaches the whole person. Regardless of what brings you initially to life coaching, you will quickly see an impact in all areas of your life. Your life is a living system with all dimensions overlapping and affecting each other. Therefore, clients quickly come to find that advancement and change in one area of their life radically empowers all the others as well. It is impossible to evidence growth professionally, for example, and not see results in your interpersonal relationships as well. This is truly a dynamic process.
Working with Carrie is about learning to live this way on a daily basis as your OWN coach; independent, whole and complete, creating a life you love-fast-and continuing this throughout your journey.
My name is Carrie Bowman, and I am an International Coach Federation (ICF) Professional Certified Coach and this is what I do. Individuals are attracted to my experience and coaching style as it dramatically raises their awareness, quickly increases options and choices, and delivers tangible results. Call me to set up a complimentary sample session and let’s get started.
Meet Carrie Bowman, an International Coach Federation Professional Certified Coach. This is what she does. Carrie has extensive experience in traditional psychotherapy but made the move to professional life coaching when she became passionate about working in a field that truly facilitates client’s growth in their potential, gifts, career and life purpose. She is a passionate advocate for her clients and helps create a path for them to change quickly and provides support, guidance, and valuable partnership along the way.
Once your aspirations and dreams have been clarified, she masterfully creates a space to support personal discovery and insight, eliciting powerful answers and guidance, thus producing awareness and choice. A radical transformational coach, Carrie’s open-minded, exciting, and results-oriented style serves to transform these missions and purposes, through weekly coaching sessions and achievable, measurable goals, quickly into a reality. With every coaching session, you will leave with practical, valuable, and concrete action steps. This is no longer about wishing or dreaming. This is about a conscious decision to start living the life in which you have always longed to participate.
When you hire Carrie as your Coach, you are hiring a strategic partner and asserting a firm commitment to finally make an investment in your most important commodity-YOU. Einstein’s statement that “no problem can be solved by the same level of perspective that created it,” beautifully characterized the underlying difficulty which so many of us face on a daily basis, expecting things to change, but unfortunately continuing to get the same mediocre results. Trying to solve your problems from the same blocked and confusing position will only create more of the same: stagnation. Simply put, you need an ally, someone to redirect and harness that energy from a place of heightened awareness, radically shifting perspective and pinpointing exactly the pathways to overcome all of your self-imposed obstacles to find true abundance and lasting change. In this space, the miraculous can only occur.

When you hire Carrie as your Coach, you are hiring a masterful ally and asserting a firm commitment to make revolutionary and dynamic changes in your world.

Professional coaching is focused on improving health and quality of life, increased interpersonal effectiveness, engagement in more satisfying personal and professional relationships and taking clients through growth towards their true potential. Coaching is deliberate action with specific goals determined, plans defined and executed, and results oriented. Masterful coaches assist clients gaining the clarity necessary to acquire a clear picture of their potential, gifts, life and career purpose. Coaching is a partnership and alliance whereby the client is supported, guided, and assisted, with the coach honoring the client as being resourceful, whole, and always their best expert.
The International Coach Federation defines the responsibility of a coach as:
This unique and powerful process assists clients dramatically in improving the various dimensions of their lives, while simultaneously unlocking their potential and purpose.
By far the most important qualities of an individual who will be successful within the coaching dynamic, are people who are self-responsible, open-minded to alternate perceptions and viewpoints, and capable/willing to take action. “Action” includes a myriad of concepts from performance-based engagements around work and home life, to engaging in different thought patterns and belief systems throughout the day. At times, the action and commitments will be uncomfortable or be experienced as challenging. This is a positive thing. Growth rarely comes from feeling “good!” It is in the discomfort of new thoughts, insecurities, behaviors, and momentum towards goals that change is born. What once used to be perceived as challenging and daunting, with practice and exposure, will become manageable and perhaps even viewed with anticipation and excitement. Do not doubt that of which you are capable! You are much more powerful than you imagine. If this resonates with you, professional coaching may be a revolutionary avenue for you by which to develop and evolve!
The lists of challenges and situations that one might choose to partner on with a coach are too many to list. My clients come to me with a variety of different experiences, and although the “details” appear varied, the “themes” are often very similar. You are feeling stuck, blocked, confused, and/or disconnected. You want to move forward in your life, but are uncertain how to do so. You are lacking in authenticity and are not sure how to solve this. Feelings of fulfillment, purpose, and happiness are low. You fervently desire growth and transformation. You engage in unproductive behavior habits and lack insight on how to change this. You want to make a shift in your career but feel unable to do so and lack direction. Your core values, talents and strengths, and purpose need to be identified and leveraged. You desire clarity in your goals and aspirations. Things are “good enough” and the status quo is becoming uncomfortably comfortable. All of these could be summed up in one sentence:
You are here and want to go there.
Carrie provides individual, group, and couples coaching in an atmosphere that supports authenticity, increased awareness, and the necessary catalyst for change.

Extensive background, education, and training in the field of clinical psychology and counseling. Although life coaching and therapy are distinctly different fields, Carrie’s extensive background allows her to uniquely bring forth various resources, knowledge and tools in assisting individuals in a variety of circumstances.

“After many years of thinking about doing it, I finally made the decision to engage a life coach. At the time, I was confused which way was up. After a few years of unexpected events in my life, I had regained some stability, but I was still feeling lost. I wasn’t sure what was next, and I was full of fear, which was holding me back. I was stuck, not making progress in certain areas of my life. I had forgotten how to get connected and listen to who I was and what I wanted. The most devastating for me was that I had lost the ability to trust myself and my individuality.
From my first conversation with Carrie, I was elated at the journey that I was about to embark on. Carrie brings a warm yet high energy that immediately allows you to feel that you have a trusted confidant on your side who is ready to get you moving forward. She also has a gift for delivering that kind of “tough love” that allows you to really look deep inside, and question and challenge that fear, and those negative words and emotions that hold so many of us back from living the lives we are meant to live.
With Carrie’s guidance, I’ve come out the other side. I have experienced a shift of coming back to my true self. And I’m carrying with me that amazing feeling that this is just the beginning, and that my future is abundant with opportunity. And when I need them, the right tools and strategies that Carrie has armed me with are available to me to move forward with confidence and in my knowing — always. “
“I came to Carrie at one of the most difficult points of my life. In my mind, I was struggling with the direction of my career. In reality, I was juggling anxiety, restlessness, a new marriage, increasingly unfulfilling work, and dreams that seemed impossible. I was skeptical of any sort of help, but I was at the end of my ability to help myself. I connected with Carrie during the complimentary initial consultation, and we continued to have these incredible weekly calls for the next several months. To say that our meetings were helpful would be an understatement. Carrie was able to listen and understand me in a professional but warm way that I couldn’t expect out of my family and friends. She built me up weekly, listened to my fears, held me accountable for my goals, but let me dictate the direction of our conversations and discover myself at my own pace. There were some weeks where we did some really insightful work into myself and some weeks where she was a patient and kind listener for me to unload my latest struggles. I always left our meetings feeling hopeful about my future and with greater clarity for my next steps. Carrie helped me navigate a complete career change, and because of her, I truly was never more at peace than the day I put in my notice. I went from a corporate financial accountant to a hospitality small business owner (a COMPLETE 180), and I have never been happier. She helped me confidently jump to the next lily pad in my life, even when I couldn’t see the outcome. I could not have done this and kept my sanity without Carrie’s guidance, and I promise that working with her will be an uplifting and life-changing experience for anyone looking for some guidance!”
“I began working with Carrie at a time when I felt stuck in my life. I knew that I needed to make major changes, especially with regard to my career path, but I felt very lost about how to make progress toward my goals. Carrie’s support was instrumental in helping me find the clarity, confidence and direction I needed to discover my authentic self and pursue my passions. I have worked with a few life coaches in the past, and my previous experiences do not compare to how wonderful my experience was working with Carrie. Her deep capacity for empathy, compassion and sincerity, along with her intelligence and life experience, always made me feel like I had someone on my team who truly understood me and could guide me through any challenge I faced. In just a few short months my life became almost unrecognizable compared to when I first started working with Carrie, and I guarantee only good things will come your way if she is on your team, too!”
From the very first conversation with Carrie, I immediately had the sense that I had always known her. While I was traversing some incredibly difficult transitions-moving from the suburbs to the city, leaving one world and going into another, I really struggled with adjusting to my new life and experiences. I felt fearful about being alone and I began to really second-guess and hesitate, not only who I truly was, but my value as a person. However, with Carrie’s incredible guidance, support, and expert knowledge, she helped me to persevere and discover so much more about myself than I ever deemed possible. Today (and in a very short period of time, too), I am now living day-to-day comfortable in my own skin. I am secure in my life, full of self-awareness and gratitude for what once used to be confusion and doubt, and am more fulfilled and happy than I have ever been. Thankfully, that has spilled into the other aspects of my life and it just keeps getting better. I met Carrie in November of 2015, and she very quickly became one of the most influential people I met last year, and possibly ever!
Carrie’s calming voice and warm tone supports transformational coaching sessions, and she continues to pose powerful and enlightening questions that purposefully lead me to the answers I firmly need. She has a certain grace, love, and innate understanding to tease out the truth that needs to be clarified, and assists me every week in forming the next steps I will take to obtain my focus and goals. Her spirit of hope is infectious and it is impossible to leave a session without being inspired to do and be better!
“It has been my pleasure to have had Carrie as a coach and supporter as we have shared this journey towards a more conscious and empowered life. She is as authentic a human being as I have ever known and creates an environment that truly encourages open and honest communication. With her encouragement, I have achieved a level of clarity and balance in my life that has exceeded my expectations. Carrie is a very calming influence, while providing an invigorating stream of motivation. She has been instrumental in helping me pave a path to success in all areas of my life. I am honored to have Carrie as my coach and enthusiastically recommend her.”
“Carrie Bowman is a gifted and powerful coach. Our coaching sessions delivered the specific clarity I was seeking while beginning my own business. Her expert coaching style sent me on a wisdom quest that would ultimately unlock my most successful and provocative ideas. I went from only one paying client to seven while working with her. She is truly POWER, and will guide you on an incredible journey to your most magnificent self. You do not want to miss this!
I reached out to Carrie during a time of great transition, specifically career. Her compassion, transparency, intuition, and knowledge resulted in clarified objectives and exciting opportunities. I thoroughly loved and felt empowered by the collaborative process. I came to her blocked and left with clarity and attainable solutions. Her support and feedback was direct and relevant to all topics addressed and examined. Thank you, Carrie, for your strong belief in me and my potential to ultimately perceive the change in my life as a gift rather than a burden.
My experience with Carrie was full of insight and purposeful from the very beginning. She helped me really go deep into what was blocking me from taking tangible steps to move forward in my life, and translate this into positive, healthy, and successful action steps to create real change in my life. Throughout our time together I was able to discover skills and passions within myself to which I was really asleep. With Carrie’s guidance I was able to finally start creating a life I truly loved. Overall I found my time with Carrie to be an incredibly positive, action-oriented, and insightful experience to finally pursue something greater for myself.
I reached out to Carrie to find some much needed clarity in my life. What came to me was so much more. With her help, I discovered where I really needed to focus my time and energies during a time in my life that was full of big transitions and lots of confusion. Once I had that information, things began to feel so much easier and I was actually able to start attaining the goals I had always wanted to reach. It’s amazing how much time is freed up when things get clear! Carrie is highly compassionate and one hundred percent committed to facilitating a client’s growth, while also helping them become more aware in the process, so they can learn to tackle this type of work on their own. I could not have asked for a better experience!
“Working with Carrie was very profound for me. Instead of stating all the obvious positives about her, I would rather highlight my personal journey and progress as confirmation of her expertise and skill. In the space of only three months, she provided the fundamental encouragement and understanding that facilitated my shift from an anxious and depressed pessimist to a confident young adult ready and eager for new opportunities. I cannot state enough how much I appreciate this experience with Carrie and offer her my highest praise and recommendation.”
“The life coach work I have been doing with Carrie has opened up my mind to new possibilities for my life. I had no idea how much more there could be! I had a ton of ideas about what I could do or paths I could take, but it all felt so distant and unattainable. This work has finally helped me to connect to all of the answers inside myself. I have finally begun to feel some peace in my life and true hope and excitement for what I am creating and what is to come. Before, I was just not able to see any of this. I am beyond thankful for the time and work she did with me. Before I began coaching, I was completely unaware of what was possible and the depth of this work. Once I was in the process of opening doors and feeling a change inside my heart, everything changed.”
“My experience with Carrie was profound. I felt compelled to find answers for my life, when I kept experiencing the same blocks and disappointments again and again. I was uncertain how much coaching could help me, but I was willing to try. My first session left me with a feeling of clarity, excitement for what could be possible, and inspiration to finally take action. Carrie is an exceptional listener and has an incredible ability to help a client process their experience without being afraid or cautious. I highly recommend her for any person who is seeking to cast light on their core being and how to connect with their true self for life-long fulfillment.”
“I knew where I wanted to be in life but didn’t have the tools and support to get me to where I was going and felt as though I was perhaps at rock bottom and knew in my heart that the only way, was up, but how. I found Carrie through Facebook and I can honestly say she was my angel In disguise. I immediately connected with Carrie. I’ll never forget my two hour session with that extraordinary woman that day. So many emotions were felt that day. Tears of sadness, relief knowing there was hope and a sense that a weight was lifted off my shoulders. The coaching, guidance and tools Carrie has given and taught me the last year has not only helped me in the here and now but it’s something that I will utilize for the rest of my life. To know her is to love her and I will forever be grateful of her!”
“Carrie is the best! I was a bit unsure of how the process would go when I started coaching sessions with her, but her warm, inviting, and engaging manner quickly set me at ease and made it possible to see some real progress in my life quite rapidly. I am quite pleased with the results, and have seen lasting positive change in my life. I would recommend Carrie’s services without hesitation to anyone looking for positive change in their life.”
