What is a Life Coach, anyway?
A Life Coach is someone who helps you identify your goals and develop an actionable plan to achieve them quickly. Through one-hour weekly sessions, 24/7 access to your coach, and supplemental encouragement and support, Life Coaches help so many people release limiting beliefs, move through challenges, discover their core purpose and fulfill their cherished dreams that they may have once thought were impossible.
“Coaches have the ability to view things from afar — in what some call ‘helicopter vision’ — and to shed new light on difficult situations. Often they can act as a sounding board through tough decisions, help sharpen skills, and motivate.”

Hi, friend! I'm so glad you're here! I'd love to talk to you about Life Coaching!
But first, it’s important for you to know a few thing about where my focus is in coaching so we can see if we're a good fit.
I coach Christian women who are experiencing some sort of obstacle, facing a huge hurdle, or just feeling stuck due to a loss, life-change, or transition, and need help and guidance in moving forward. The reason my coaching is to Christian women specifically is two-fold: 1) As a Christian, you have the power of the Holy Spirit within you to assist you in the processes to make lasting, impactful change. Galatians 5:16 say, “Walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.”, and 2) It is vital to apply the truth and precepts of the scriptures, to “walk by the Spirit” in your situation, and I need you to be able to want to.
You also need to know, I am not a therapist. If you have depression or anxiety that requires medication, or have had trauma that has resulted in PTSD, you will need to see a licensed counsellor or Psychiatrist. I'm happy to recommend someone.
Life Coaching requires your full participation. We’re going to be doing some work! It’s my goal to get you over this hump, through this obstacle, or out of this pit you’re stuck in to move forward as quickly as possible so that you can live and thrive in a balanced life. It’s active, everyday work, first, to become aware of ourselves, and then second, to transform our minds and thinking. We will do this all with the help of our heavenly Father. I will begin and end our session together each time with prayer, because I believe inviting Him into the situation will be of great benefit.
Lastly, we’ll be addressing all 3 parts of your human nature: the body, the soul (mind, will, and emotions), and the spirit. It would be very helpful if you would listen to my podcast, Another Beautiful Life, episode #2 Mind, Body, Spirit Wholeness so you can get an understanding of what we focus on in Life Coaching. You can find the "Podcast" tab at the top of this page.
If after you read this and feel like we might be a good fit, please send me a message via the "Contact" tab and we can set up a consult call. If you're not in my local area, no worries! We can set up meetings via Zoom. Otherwise, meetings are held in my home office, unless you'd rather set up online meetings. I'm flexible!
Ok, send me a message so we can see if we're a good fit! Let's get going!
"I was stuck in a rut and just totally unaware of how to break free from a pattern of false belief that had kept me in destructive or unhealthy patterns of behavior. Tricia took me under her guidance in a time when I was very hurt and hurting the very ones that were trying to help. She was gracious and loving, yet firm - showing me the Grace and Love of God. When I was in pain and felt alone, she supported me. I learned to feel safe, loved, and connected - with others and with Christ. Those life lessons she taught me during my most difficult times help me now, and I continue to grow in my personal, spiritual, and professional life.
If this resonates with you, I strongly suggest allowing Tricia Zody to walk with you in this life journey. Tricia brings her gifts of unconditional love, grace, and biblical principles to life in such an authentic place that is powerful and effective."
- Patti Funk
"Having Tricia for a life coach has been a True Blessing from God. Her encouragement, direction and understanding of The Bible helped guide me towards a more Purpose Driven Life. If you feel Like something is missing in your life or Spiritual life, Tricia can help set you on the path to freedom and healing through coaching and prayer."
- LynEllen Clary
"I found Tricia just when I hit rock bottom in my marriage. She helped me see those places where I had been believing lies and gave me the tools to work through my issues that kept me from loving my husband the way I really wanted to. I'm so grateful for her patience and compassion with me. My husband and I are doing well and are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary next month."
- S. Brown
"Honestly, I wasn't sure if Life Coaching was for me. It's not always easy for me to open up. But Tricia has a knack for listening without judgment, which put me at ease right away. There was so much pressure and stress in my life, and after our first session together I felt like a load of bricks was lifted off my shoulders. My life has been changed and I'm able to handle things now with so much more peace. Thank you, Tricia!"
