”I have been a licensed Mental Health Counselor for twenty years. I found myself going through a very difficult time in my life. It was a time of tough decision making for me and I felt I needed some help. I found Laura to be an excellent life/spiritual/dream building coach. She expanded my universe with teachings of forgiveness, compassion, encouragement, and gentle confrontation. My 40 year transcendental meditation practice became deeper and more energized, and I transitioned into the world of dreams and life changing possibilities. Thanks Laura, for showing me how to live My dream.”

”When Laurie found me she was stuck working 10-hour days, held back by fear and a toxic marriage. With just 12-weeks of coaching Laurie found her power. She was able to define clearly what she wanted in both her marriage and her career. Now she works 6-hours per day doing what she loves and is on her way to a six-figure income. She learned how to set clear emotional boundaries with her partner and is living the life of her dreams.”


When Sandy and I met her job was overwhelming. Fear of change left her frozen and without confidence. She was miserable and all the things she tried to “fix it” failed. She obsessed about the future and worried about the past which left her to exhausted to devote any energy to her grandchildren or friends. She made a decision that she was ready for change. In just 12-weeks of coaching with me she identified the subconscious beliefs that kept her stuck. She learned how to use fear as a stepping stone and upped her deserve. Sandy is now working smarter, exercising regularly, and showing up for herself, living the life of her dreams!

Laura is a fantastic coach! She is incredible adept and skilled in pinpointing limiting beliefs, habits, and paradigms that keep you from your goals. Since I started coaching with Laura in September, I have a new job that I love, my relationship is stronger than ever, and I finally finished and presented a masterclass that I’d been working on for two years. Thank you Laura Bender!
