When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it.

Hello, my name is Laura Bradford Coleman, Ph.D., BCC. I am a Board Certified Coach (BCC) offering life coaching. I’m also a National Certified Counselor (NCC), Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC). That’s me in the photo to your right.
I work in my private practice named, Coleman Life Coaching. I’ve been fascinated by how people grow, change, and overcome obstacles since I was about 10 years old. I’d sneak into my father’s room when no one was home and read his psychology books. As I progressed in school, I integrated what I learned from reading those classics with the newest information from my professors.
Before I became a Board Certified Coach, I was a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. And before I was a therapist, I was a special education teacher. This adds up to over 40 years of experience helping children and adults reach goals, solve problems, and develop into their very best selves.
I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, cousin, friend, and life coach. I enjoy my life in the country with my husband, kitty and the horses out back. I read science fiction and urban fantasy novels. And I love music, especially oldies from the 1960’s and ’70’s.
I am retired from private psychotherapy practice and am no longer taking therapy clients. Instead, I am working as a life coach to help you grow and solve your problems.
I love coaching. I experienced coaching from the swimming pool lifeguards who encouraged my desire to learn those convoluted dives off the high diving board. In high school, my incredible speech and drama teacher coached me to compete in poetry reading contests. Still, later, I had an incredible life coach who cajoled, encouraged, questioned, confronted and believed in my abilities to achieve my personal goals.
In coaching, I partner with people who want to manifest their dreams and solve problems. Like the quote at the top of my page, I feel it is my mission to see you fulfill those yearnings deep within you. Those yearnings contain your life’s purpose. I want to help you find your own mission so that you too can be filled with enthusiasm and a burning desire to work on it.
