Tackle your biggest challenges head-on with an experienced Coach by your side.


I'm Deborah Thompson, a certified executive coach and organizational consultant. My passion is helping clients make sense of complex challenges, creating clarity, focus and balance for themselves and their teams.

I work with purpose-driven leaders and organizations who are ready for meaningful, transformational, sustainable change.

Reality check - most of us don't have it all figured out.  We worry, over-think, over-commit, lose focus, get stuck, overwhelmed, exhausted. We doubt ourselves, lose confidence, and question our capabilities. And we need support.

Even if we sometimes don't know how to ask for it.

I can help. 


As a coach+consultant, I serve as a strategic thought partner, confidante, and guide to help you step into the possibilities you want for your life, your business and your team. I work with clients on a vast array of topics all designed to help you sharpen your skills, gain clarity and simplicity, and restore balance and well-being.  My goal is to empower clients to create meaningful changes that support personal growth and organizational sustainability. 

Whatever brings you to my doorstep, we'll start with an initial conversation to see if I'm a fit for your needs. If we agree to move forward, we'll design an individualized program that empowers you to create the impact you desire.

"One of the most useful benefits was helping me to take time to focus on my career goals. I realized the importance of setting aside time weekly to focus on important long term projects and goals, rather than getting caught up in urgent day-to-day matters."
