Do you want more from your life?

My clients are at a point in their lives where they want change - continuing on their present course is undesirable or even unacceptable. These feelings often have to do with career changes, relationships that aren't working, a desire to live life differently, a desire for greater fulfillment, or a realization that they are not living up to their potential. Sometimes they're just plain unhappy with the present, and not clear about the future.

I'm Doug Owen -- a Life and Career Coach. I work as a life coach for individuals, and as an executive coach to senior management in both business and non-profit enterprises. I coach people who have a great desire to create the life they really want. Working with a coach, my clients have discovered how to:

  • Reduce stress in their personal and professional lives
  • Change habits that are counter productive
  • Develop new skills
  • Become more effective at work
  • Lead a more balanced life
  • Improve their sense of well-being
  • Get moving again!

You can see some of the results we've achieved in the Real Life Stories section.

I also offer workshops on setting and evaluating life and career direction. Please see the Services page for details.

Two ways to help you:

  • I offer a 30-minute complimentary "session" that will allow you to see how I work and decide whether I'm the right coach for you.
  • Call or email me with any questions you may have about my services or the way I work

My phone is (831) 566-0676

You may also reach me by email

I look forward to hearing from you.

"..a weight off my shoulders.."

I actually received an offer letter from Amazon last evening and officially accepted it today! I am very happy about it, and feel that a great weight has been taken off of my shoulders.[more..]

Getting a Dream Job

It was clear at our first meeting that in addition to help with the job-seeking process, there were some personal attitudes which, if left un-addressed, would severely compromise this young woman’s search. She had graduated from university, moved to California from her childhood home in the south to live with her sister, and was looking for work in a difficult job environment. Together, we formulated a plan and timetable, and she went to work on the issues. With encouragement, role playing and practice, she made significant changes, and within a couple of months she was offered her dream job. She continued to check in for affirmation and reinforcement, and within four months of starting was offered her first promotion.
