An intentionally-lived life doesn’t happen on accident.
Scripture & neuroscience BOTH prove this.
You were purposefully created.
Live the life you were created for!

Whether you're here to feel better or to live bigger,
the Bible & neuroscience both say they start in the same place!
But how do you "hold your thoughts captive?"

God gave you dreams; let's make them a reality!

  • Do you have dreams of bigger things?

  • Feeling bored, knowing you were created for something more?

  • Great at setting goals, but not achieving them?

  • Stuck in confusion or overwhelm?

  • Sick of listening to your old records of "not enough"?

We weren’t created to compartmentalize who we are as Christians.

So how do we live authentically, while pursuing our goals & dreams?

I’ll help you get there!

"Shanen is a kind coach and easy to talk to. She takes old narratives and gives life-giving perspectives to them, helping women fully realize themselves through God."

My heart feels like it will burst because I’ve finally found the underlying cause of my attitude, but equally important, I now have a tool to guide and correct my thinking. Together with your keen sense of coaching, these things have enabled me to move forward in a healthy manner to live life!

Shanen has helped me more than I can begin to express. Her skill, insight, and most importantly, her faith allowed me to work through some tough issues and see things from a different perspective when needed. She does God’s work every day; there is no doubt she is His instrument.

I sought coaching in hopes of finding relief from years of battling professional doubt and insecurity. She showed me where my thoughts were skewed based on previous experiences and assumptions. For the first time, I was able to see how my thoughts were sabotaging me. Shanen helped me approach my thinking in an objective way, which led to more productive actions and better results. I began feeling better and more confident after just one session, and quickly began catching myself when I fell into old habits of making assumptions that don’t serve me. My old ways of thinking no longer have the same power over me. Shanen’s lessons have been invaluable and I highly recommend her as a personal coach!

Thank you for the gift of coaching with you. It came at a good time in my life as I moved in a positive direction and reinforced that and gave me the tools I needed. Your program helped me articulate my struggles and goals aloud, process the concept of circumstances being neutral, and recognize how much I need to work on changing my thought patterns. I am thankful for the resources you’ve provided.

Working with Shanen has completely up-leveled me as a person. I was trying to self-coach but was coming up against so much negative self-talk that I just couldn’t overcome on my own. She helped me see that I have choices regarding my job in order to decrease my overwhelm, and also helped me figure out a plan to start my own business. Shanen’s helped me find the positive in my job rather than stressing and focusing on when I can quit. I am so glad I am working with her to learn how to change my thoughts. She is truly helping me to change my life!

Regional Manager and Parenting Coach

When I started working with Shanen a year ago, I needed help sorting out my thoughts/feelings with my professional career. She listened and asked great questions which helped me realize what I truly wanted, how to make peace with my current situation if I chose to stay, and how to create a plan to start my own business if I chose to leave. She helped me evaluate my thoughts so that I would be happy with either decision. My dreams and professional goals are coming true and I made peace knowing that I’m doing the right thing. I’m very grateful for Shanen’s positive attitude and how she keeps it real. I’m excited for the next chapter in my professional life and I know Shanen will be in it as well.

Why work with me?

Because I’ve been there. I get it.  I pursued my dream while a wife, mom, student, volunteer and employee!  You’re a busy woman and you’re not sure how to fit “one more thing” into your life…yet you know you were created for more than this and you won’t stop until you get there, knowing God wouldn’t have given you this vision if He weren’t going to provide the way there.

Lots of coaches can get you from surviving to striving, but that’s not how we’re called to approach our goals. As a coach who’s also trained as a therapist, I offer a unique perspective with Scripture, neuroscience, and psychology to get you from striving to thriving…with your new abundant life deeply rooted in Jesus.

Lies We Believe

Neuroscience has shown that the brain has both plasticity (the ability to change) and neurogenesis (the growth of new brain neurons). This means we can change our brains and our thinking! A belief is just thought that's been thought so often that we accept it as fact. But as the saying goes, "Don't believe everything you think!"

How Models Reflect God’s Creation

The model itself wasn't created by humans. They’re the way God created the world, and they show us how it operates. They're a neutral observation of human behavior, and they're working whether we acknowledge them or not. So how do we tune into them in order to hold every thought captive and manage our lives?

The Circle of Influence

If other people's thoughts (not their circumstances) are what create their feelings, does that give us free reign to say & do whatever we want, leaving the responsibility on them? How does this match up with morality? Today we dive in to the Circle of Influence.
