It's common to feel stressed, overwhelmed, and stuck. 

But you don't have to stay there...

I help people go from stressed and overwhelmed to calm, confident, and purposeful so they can live lives of freedom and flourishing, as God intended.

You're feeling a sense of overwhelm and discontent.

You feel stuck in your decision making.

You feel chained to your emotions and thoughts.

You're not even certain you know which direction your life should be going in.

You want a change and you want the clarity and confidence to begin moving your life (personal, professional, or spiritual) in a more fulfilling and satisfying direction.


I have an unwavering belief that God intends for you to have an abundant and flourishing life, regardless of your circumstances!

Working with a coach means you gain that sense of freedom, clarity and confidence faster and accomplish your goals much quicker than you would on your own. You'll also gain the mindset and resilience you need to maintain the momentum and keep living the flourishing, purposeful, and satisfying life God is inviting you into. 

Before I started working with Justin I was feeling stuck in my life, directionless, and defeated to say the least. I knew that I needed professional help if I wanted to make visible changes in my life.


I chose to team up with Justin because I felt myself being challenged and growing even from my first consultation, and afterwards feeling a sense of excitement and hope. While working with Justin, I have uncovered what my values are and what my current purpose is, I discovered various limiting beliefs and tools to work through them. I have had so many powerful breakthroughs that have given me clarity and completely shifted my mindset. I am sure if we had not met I would still be spinning my wheels, stuck in the same spot I was in months ago: exhausted, frustrated and not knowing if and how things would ever change. I would say to anyone who is in a situation similar to where I was and is looking for help, give yourself the gift of working with Justin.

I have no doubt you will gain clarity, hope and an excitement for a life that may not feel possible now.

-Chloe Doxtad, USA

I've been working with clients around the world for the past 10 years to help them gain freedom from emotional baggage and the clarity and direction to lead lives of freedom and purpose, as God intended.


I bring a unique blend of both personal and professional experience, as well as academic knowledge, into our coaching relationship to help you grow in your own self-awareness and then translate that self-awareness into confidence and clarity in the personal, professional, and spiritual components of your life.

Humans are relational beings, that's part of what we Christian's would call the imago dei (image of God) within us. I firmly believe that we reach our fullest potential by developing a strong connection to and awareness of our self, a strong and healthy connection to others, and a secure attachment to God.

Therefore, my work is grounded in my Christian faith and founded in the idea that each human being, by the very nature of being human, has an innate wealth of potential that God has placed within them. In addition, I believe that the work of Jesus Christ forms the foundation of our connection with God and is the basis for our growth and change as individuals. I love working with clients to help them connect with God's heart for them and live into the lives of freedom and flourshing he desires for them.

My desire is to see each of my clients have a deep, loving connection with Jesus and live into all that they were created to be!

Embarking on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth with Justin has been an incredible experience that I am truly grateful for. Through his guidance, I have witnessed remarkable transformations in both my spiritual journey and my daily life. Justin's unique approach to coaching goes beyond just setting goals; he delves deep into understanding the essence of who you are, your aspirations, and the barriers that might be holding you back. His compassionate and non-judgmental demeanor creates a safe space where I felt comfortable sharing my thoughts, fears, and dreams.


One of the most profound areas of growth has been in my spiritual walk. Justin's guidance has helped me connect with my inner self on a much deeper level. He provided me with the tools to explore my beliefs, values, and purpose in life. His insightful discussions and thought-provoking exercises encouraged me to explore spirituality in a way that felt authentic to me. As a result, I have experienced a newfound sense of peace, clarity, and alignment with my spiritual beliefs. Beyond the spiritual aspect, working with Justin has significantly impacted my daily life. His practical strategies and tailored action plans have empowered me to make positive changes in various areas, from time management to communication skills.


Justin's ability to break down complex challenges into manageable steps has been invaluable in helping me overcome obstacles and achieve personal milestones. What truly sets Justin apart is his genuine investment in his clients' well-being and growth. He doesn't just offer advice; he actively listens, asks thought-provoking questions, and provides unwavering support. His commitment to my journey was evident in the progress I've made under his guidance.


In retrospect, my decision to work with Justin has been life-changing. The growth I have experienced, both spiritually and in my daily life, is a testament to his expertise and dedication. If you are seeking a coach who will walk alongside you, empower you to unlock your potential, and guide you towards meaningful transformation, I wholeheartedly recommend Justin. His impact on my journey is immeasurable, and I am excited to continue this path of growth with him by my side.

Balanced Coaching Pillars
The foundation of the work we'll do together

Understanding Who You Are

Living a purposeful and fulfilling life starts with knowing who you are. Our culture doesn’t prioritize focused self-reflection but it’s critical if you want to gain clarity on how to move forward in your life. Together, we’ll work on:

  • Clarifying your core values

  • Understanding what motivates you

  • Using the science of visualization and mindfulness to grasp a vision for your future

  • Utilizing the Enneagram, Immanuel Intervention, REAL and Listening Prayer, Steps to Freedom, and other tools to help you find freedom from emotional baggage and bondage.

Finding Purpose

Once you have a better idea of who you are and where you want your life to go, finding a sense of purpose becomes a lot easier. Together, we’ll work on:


  • Finding a sense of purpose and meaning in your life

  • Clarifying your goals

  • Using your unique gifts and talents to begin defining a path forward in your life

Fostering Connections

In a world that often feels disconnected, fostering genuine connections becomes a vital part of personal growth and fulfillment. Connections are at the heart of a thriving life. Together we'll work on:

  • Connecting with Self: Understanding your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors and embracing self-compassion. This connection with oneself lays the foundation for connecting with others and the world around you.

  • Connecting with Others: Building and nurturing relationships that are meaningful and supportive. This includes family, friends, colleagues, and community. We'll explore communication skills, empathy, and trust to strengthen these connections.

  • Connecting with God: As Christians we know this connection represents a spiritual bond that provides guidance, strength, and purpose. We'll explore ways to deepen this connection through prayer, meditation, and understanding of spiritual principles.

Building Self Confidence

Feeling unsure of yourself happens to all of us and can be one of the biggest barriers to living into your full potential. Recognizing these feelings is the key to beating them and feeling more confident. Together, we’ll work on:

  • Learning to recognize and face your fears and self-doubts head-on from a foundation of a secure, loving attachment to God

  • Uncovering new strengths and abilities you never knew you had

  • Increasing your self-awareness and confidence in light of how God has made you

Building Resilience

Life has a way of throwing curve balls at us. Even the best laid plans can be thrown off course. What do we do when that happens? Together we’ll work on:

  • Building a growth mindset

  • Learning to make better decisions

  • Learning from mistakes and pushing forward

  • Staying focused when things seem to get in our way

Justin has been my mindset mentor ever since I first found his book and met him. Through his inspiration and mentoring of me, I have seen a lot of changes in my life and he has helped me to understand why God created me and the purpose He has for my life. Through his mentoring of me, so many people in Kenya are now learning from his work as I carry his teachings into my work in the Kenyan prisons.

One-on-One Coaching Program

Balanced Life Membership

I prefer to build deep connections with my clients, work with them on their timeline rather than mine, and be a true "friend on the journey". That's why I offer a coaching subscription. This format is for those who are committed to deep personal transformation.


The effects of ongoing coaching compound, meaning the work builds on itself, and the value builds over time. This is the result of building a strong rapport with a coach who truly understands you the more you work together. It’s also the result of stacking breakthroughs on top of one another. When progress is made in one area or moment of life, it unlocks a new door to yet another breakthrough.


Offering up to three tailored sessions each month, this program is designed to help you navigate life's challenges, set achievable goals, and foster meaningful connections. Our sessions will be hyper-focused on your unique situation to provide a holistic and personalized journey toward self-improvement. 

After each session you will receive a recording of the session as well as a detailed summary of the session complete with key themes, reflection questions, and action steps.

I never want finances to be a barrier to our working together, so I've developed a tiered subscription system that has multiple access points to coaching.

-Jacob Valliere, USA

The 'thing' you've been searching for to make your life "click" is closer than you think. Through coaching, I can help you discover your intrinsic God-given value, guiding you toward your own unique sense of purpose and fulfillment. You'll be empowered to replace that inner critical voice with God's voice (grounded in Scripture), helping you replace fear with confidence and uncertainty with clarity.

Imagine feeling a deep sense of purpose, satisfaction, and contentment in your life, irrespective of your job, relationships, or wealth. Picture yourself with a clear understanding of who you are and what you want from life. Visualize a life with less anxiety and stress and more emotional control, enriched by fulfilling relationships and personal growth. This is the abundant life you were meant to live, and it's closer than you think.

By working with me, you will:

  • Experience a deeper sense of fulfillment in your relationships, career, and personal growth

  • Become more decisive and confident, making choices that align with your values and priorities

  • Build a resilient mindset and a robust self-confidence foundation

  • Gain a clear sense of direction, meaning, and purpose

The key to unlocking this life is not as elusive as it seems—it requires courage, the courage you've already demonstrated by being here. I founded Balanced Coaching to guide individuals like you from a state of overwhelm and stagnation to a fulfilling, purposeful life. If you're prepared to take your life to the next level, let's start this journey together. Your life of purpose and fulfillment awaits
