Personal Coaching

Coaching is a team approach to solving problems.

Coaching seems to be a relatively new profession; however, it has been part of human relationships throughout history. We are all coaches when we walk alongside someone else and allow space for self-reflection, inquiry, and the creation of openness to see life situations from a position of confidence, peace, strength, joy, and love. No matter who we are, we all need coaches – even coaches need coaches!

As your coaches, we are your team, a team that is ready to help you create your best life. You are no longer alone trying to figure out everything on your own. We are here with you every step of the way!

And your problems can be solved.

When you are in the thick of things, it can be difficult to see a way out. But that does not mean there isn’t a way out. We work with you to find solutions that are meaningful and impactful for you!

Our approach is customized to look at every aspect of your life.

No two people are alike. We look at your situation and help you!

What is directly in front of you tends not to be the issue but the symptom. Your life has many layers: you are affected by your job, family, friends, and self-image, to name a few. In our customized personal coaching sessions, we focus on your unique layers with the common goal to heal and empower you by teaching you to participate fully in all aspects of your life. We do this by looking at the internal and external struggles you are facing, creating a safe environment in which to focus on each challenging aspect, then working together to find permanent solutions to ease the suffering and provide confidence for facing similar future challenges.

To do this, we utilize our unique methodology outlined in our book 5 Points to PEACE by making the following inquiries:

How is your past affecting your life today?

We will look at your past and then move past your past so you can move forward in tangible, positive ways.

What do you discover when you analyze your feelings, thoughts, behavior, and self-talk?

We will give you practical tools to inquire within, helping you to easily see that the answers to your life’s struggles are already inside you, rather than outside you.

Does your current perception of yourself allow you to cultivate healthy relationships, or are you stuck in blame, codependency, manipulation, and conditional happiness?

We will teach you how to be aware of unhealthy aspects in your relationships and provide clear guidance for you to make the necessary changes in YOURSELF so that everything else in your life can fall into place. You can’t change others, but you CAN change yourself!

Are you unknowingly taking actions that thwart your desire to create a happy life for yourself, or do you take steps each day that produce PEACE?

You will learn exactly what to do to make your life what you want it to be.

We are here to teach you to engage fully in today ~ the only time possible when you can make a difference.

In addition to all of the above, we take a whole life approach to coaching and aim to help you in every area of life.

  • Want to get more organized? We can help!
  • Need some assistance in preparing for a job interview? We can help!
  • Ready to make some changes to your clothing and appearance? We can help!

In any part of your life where you need support, we can help! We want you to get the most out of life!

We look forward to working with you!

We conduct our coaching in person in our Grand Junction, Colorado office, via phone, or Skype.

Business Coaching

The purpose of business is financial, interpersonal, and individual success.

As business owners and leaders, most of us consider ourselves successful when our companies are thriving financially. At the Academy for Personal Development, financial prosperity is only part of the equation because, in reality, companies are truly successful when management and every employee is thriving financially, as well as interpersonally and individually.

Far too many companies do not value their employees. At the same time, many employees do not work for the good of their companies. Success occurs when management and personnel work as a unified team, with respect and effective communication flowing in both directions.

Let's create a successful team together!

  • Do you want your entire company to thrive?
  • Do you want to trust and respect every one of your employees?
  • Do you want your employees to be excited to come to work?
  • Do you want every member of your team to grow and develop professionally and personally?

Our business is your business.

We will teach you how to communicate with your employees and train your employees to interact with you and their colleagues effectively. We do this by customizing our work to address the unique environment and personalities that make up your business. We begin by meeting with your management team to discover the overall problems from their perspective; then gain an understanding of the employees’ points-of-view.

Permanent change and true success are possible.

With direct and definite action steps, we help you implement solutions at all levels, changing the culture of your company so that all three areas of success are attainable.

There will be no quick-fix motivational sessions because everyone forgets those before they return to their desks. By working one-on-one with all the members of your team and bringing everyone together, we produce permanent change and real success.

We look forward to making your business a success!

Health Coaching

On our own journeys towards health and healing, we quickly found that there isn’t a single problem.

People have many layers and so do our problems. That is why we call what we do “whole life coaching.” It is about your WHOLE life, not simply part of it or even the part that looks like the biggest issue.

Our health is no different.

That is why Ada decided to add health coaching certifications in the areas of families, pregnancy, and adults & seniors from the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute to her list of qualifications.

What we love about Dr. Sears’ philosophy is that you can quickly and easily determine if you are eating healthy food and incorporating healthy practices into your daily life.

There is no “right” way of eating and no “right” way of exercising.

The right diet is the food that works best for your body. The right exercise is the exercise you will do.

How you eat and how you move is only part of the equation. Whole life coaching also focuses on how your attitude is affecting your outlook on life and daily lifestyle choices too!
