Meet Carrie Hopkins-Doubts

Carrie’s Why: “To strengthen WU’s position of leadership and professionalism at the intersection of practical spirituality and wellness.”

My name is Carrie Hopkins-Doubts. I was born in Wichita, Kansas, and I now live in the peaceful desert of Arizona, where I run my coaching business from.

My life and work focus on helping men and women take absolute ownership of their power to create their best life while they’re going through some of the most challenging times.
It is easy in this world to let life live us rather than leading and living the life of our dreams.

Then inevitably, something happens that helps us wake up.

Someone close to us leaves, we move out of a marriage that isn’t working for us, a loved one passes away, or we go through some other life-changing event that feels overwhelming and difficult.

I’ve been through all of this and so I know how lost that can make you feel.

These events change everything we think about life in an instant. And they affect the way we move through the world profoundly.

One distinction that will make the difference between whether these events derail your career and family or help you live your best life is whether you have help developing your resilience and spirit.

That is my work in the world.

Education & Experience

In 1995, I went back to school and earned a Master of Arts in Spiritual Psychology with an Emphasis in Consciousness, Health, and Healing from the University of Santa Monica. I served as the Director of Education Administration and Faculty Development at USM for nearly 20 years and as a faculty member in the Spiritual Psychology Program for 10+ years.

In 2013, I earned my professional coaching certification from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). I am also a Certified Grief Counselor by the American Academy of Grief Counseling. I hold the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential with International Coach Federation (ICF) and am a Certified Transformational Presence Coach through the Center for Transformational Presence Coaching and Leadership.

I founded Life’s Next Chapter Coaching in 2013. Why? I knew that my purpose as a coach would be to support people during difficult life transitions. As a Spiritual Resilience Coach, I’m here to take this work further. I help people remember their Essence, to connect with the truth of who they are to create their Life’s Next Chapter.
