Like you, life coach and mental health counselor Carissa Doré understands the complex nature of holding down a career, balancing family life and still being true to one’s own dreams. After recognizing the need for balance, rich relationships, and purpose in her own life, she realized other people have the same needs, too. It was then she determined to help others find purpose, balance, and adjust to change.

With over two decades of training, coaching, and most importantly, real-life experience-Carissa has developed a keen insight into promoting change in ways other life coaches can’t. She holds a BA in Behavioral Science and a MA in Marriage and Family Therapy. Using her contagious enthusiasm, Carissa is adept at helping her clients live authentic and more relevant lives. She provides life-coaching that will help you find your life purpose, bring your life into balance or adjust to new challenges. Learn more about Carissa at https://www.linkedin.com/in/carissadore

I have known Carissa Dore' for over 20yrs. She has set goals professionally and physically, and always follows thru 100%.
I have not only seen her goals of school accomplishments, but I have seen Carissa and her family all have educational goals and do extremely well at their accomplishing those goals. You can see by her accademic accomplishments on here, how incredibly dedicated she is at her career goals,and I have seen her achieve so much over the last 20yrs, I would recommend her highly to help anyone achieve goals of any type.Carissa is extremely savvy,charming,helpful, down to earth w/realistic expectations, who could help you with as little as sewing a button on a shirt or getting your PHD.
Not only have I seen Carissa plan her future and her family's educational goals, but I have seen her also set physical goals and I have seen her trasform her life of becoming extremely healthy through careful planning .She doesn't just talk the talk, she walks the walk.
Carissa is extremely crafty,and realistic about goals, as I have seen people attain incredible changes that are extremely inspiring!

Carissa is a great teacher but she also listens....with her heart and mind!!!! She understands the unspoken and provides lessons by encouraging one to share themselves!!! I loved my time with Carissa and would recommend her to anyone searching for answers to life questions.
