Dr. Richelle Hoekstra-Anderson


  • Life & Leadership Transformation Coach

  • Clinical Psychologist

  • Speaker

  • Trainer

I am passionate about inspiring professionals, leaders and entrepreneurs who are at a crossroads in their personal and professional life move though transitions to achieve the goals and the life they've dreamed of.  Your transition may mean navigating through grief or loss of a loved one, job, pet, marriage, significant relationship, empty nest, retirement or even a dream.

One of the things I most enjoy about coaching is that it isn’t about fixing people. Instead, a coach functions as a partner helping you transform your life as you intentionally live out your values and reach your dreams. As you first learn to lead yourself, you will have a greater impact upon everyone around you.



A coaching conversation transforms the way you look at your life, opening the doors to new possibilities.   Coaching isn’t

advice-giving.  Rather, it presumes you have the answers already inside yourself that you haven't fully accessed yet. 


I offer powerful, insightful coaching questions designed to help you develop new awareness by examining thought and behavior patterns from new angles. Then I provide ongoing support and encouragement to reach every single goal you set.  Furthermore, I offer many valuable resources to reinforce your learning and create action.

My coaching will inspire you to BE, DO and HAVE more than you think is possible as you release the POTENTIAL inside of you.

Coaching helps you to:


  • create a compelling vision for your life

  • believe you have the power to make things better

  • change the way you see the past 

  • take action steps and create new habits

  • move beyond survival into success, significance and legacy

Each of my coaching programs are personalized and uniquely designed to help you achieve your specific goals and dreams.​



A fulfilling and successful life is within reach
