A strong beacon of encouragement, strength, confidence and trust; Chris Saunders brings all of these skills to her Wholehearted Life coaching practice. 
In the years that I’ve known her, I’ve watched her develop into a coach/trainer who skillfully builds confidence and deepens relationships between peers, friends, co-workers, and clients. 
Chris is like a gemstone - using life’s many lessons to safely polish the rough edges of a difficult situation into a shining example of how to move forward.  And even better, she makes it look easy. 
I’ve come to her with what I thought were complicated issues – only to have her cut to the heart of the matter and come up with simple solutions that actually work. 
Working with Chris is an adventure.  She is always exploring new and different approaches to improve her coaching skills as well as her own life path. 
Her generous spirit and contagious smile go a long way in providing a safe and comfortable space to create positive outcomes. 

My Mission

My mission is to partner with you to unlock your full potential and break down barriers so you can live a Wholehearted life. My goal is to provide you proven strategies and help you navigate around the fear that paralyzes you and a majority of society from following their passion, taking risks or being blissfully happy. Life is what you make it, so dream big, dance your pants off, and love passionately. 

Meeting Chris was kind of a crossroads kind of meeting.  I was at an impasse in my career and personal life.  I had lived my whole life thinking that I was who I was and I didn’t need to change and I wasn’t going to change.  Funny thing is, no one has ever challenged my way of thinking.  I approached Chris with a question.  How can I begin to approach things differently so that I have a different outcome?  Little did I know that I was changing my way of thinking just by asking that very question.  I have been meeting with Chris for a month and a half now and I can see the difference in my perspective on many things in my life and especially my attitude towards my work and my colleagues.  Just having an attitude of acceptance to new ideas and willingness to change has given me such freedom and has enlightened me to a whole new world.  It sounds strange but I am not the same person I was just a few weeks ago that told Chris under no circumstances would I consider changing.  When I tell people that I am seeing a life coach they snicker and say “really”?  Yes really.  When a light in your car goes off you take it in to get a diagnostic of what might be wrong.  When you are injured you see a doctor to heal.  When you are lost you find a map.  Well, my internal light went off, I felt like my personality was injured and I felt lost so I sought help through wonderful insight of one Chris Saunders.


What people are saying.

In Partnership to Unlock the Full Potential of your Life.

It was about a year ago that I reached out to you.  And as you probably remember, I was pretty depressed and just really feeling out of sorts about things in my career and life.  And because of your gentle guidance, I came to a much better place about my mental state regarding one particular person.  A year later, I have a GREAT professional relationship with this person, and I would say overall I’m handling other professional relationships better, too. I just had my yearly review which went very well.  So I’m looking back at this last year and just feeling so incredibly grateful for everything you have done for me. KP

Chris your positive energy inspires me to be a kinder person and to always see the positive in all situations. Thank you for being an amazing person
