Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? ~ Mary Oliver

You know in your soul you were meant for more. Are you are ready to step out of your comfort zone so you can become who you were meant to be?

My name is Denise Bischof and I empower women to step fully into their power so they can take their life and career to the next level and make a greater impact in the world.

After 2 decades in non-profit supporting and leadership roles, I hit the wall in 2012. I didn’t understand why, but I was miserable. I had lost my passion and joy for the work.

Helping people thrive was on my heart so I knew I needed to make a change.

I dove deep into my journey of healing and self-discovery by immersing myself in spiritual teachings as well as yoga, meditation, and forgiveness.

Within a few months, I felt restored and like my soul had been awakened.

That’s when I stepped into the world of transformational life coaching and I was forever changed.

Through coaching, I released deep-seated beliefs that were contributing to my unhappiness and limiting my potential and I realized that while I can’t control what happens around me, I can control what happens within me.

 I was finally able to step confidently into who I was meant to be as a spiritual teacher and leader.

In 2016, I took a leap of faith and became a certified coach and member of the International Coaching Federation.

I love helping my clients get the clarity, confidence, and courage they need to create a successful life that’s authentic and fulfilling!

My greatest gift is my ability to identify what’s holding you back and help you move from fear to possibility.

On a personal note, I love to connect deeply with others through laughter and tears and my natural curiosity has my friends and family “lovingly” refer to me as “the questioner.” 🙂

I enjoy hiking, kayaking, and traveling and as life-long student of all things personal growth, you’ll often find me with my head in a book or listening to a podcast.

If you want to chat, click here or on the button below for a complimentary discovery call.

You’ll walk away with a clear roadmap of what you can do to thrive, not just survive. And if it looks like a good match, I’ll be happy to share how I can support you. No hype, no pressure. That’s just not my style.

Take care and we’ll talk soon!

“With life coaching, I experienced growth that allowed a quiet confidence that I had been looking for. I received tools to address some life areas, that were loving, gentle, and pragmatic. I would recommend Denise to anyone hoping to move ahead in areas in which they’d like direction and encouragement.”

Mary Chiles

“Through life coaching with Denise, I received a whole new way of experiencing and being in my world. Denise taught me I am worthy. I do not have to carry other’s pain and negative feelings. She showed me I have power and gave me “permission” to make and hold boundaries. I now know I was controlling when I thought I was helping. Frustration and strife are gone. Much peace now!”

Dana Sisk

“Denise created a space that allowed me to feel safe and helped me become more self-aware. She truly listens in a kind, gentle, and authentic way. With her support, I am creating a more joyful, fulfilling life! I recommend Denise to anyone who needs to re-calibrate, re-focus, or find some clarity. Thank you for blessing me in a powerful way!”


My Values & Beliefs

We were made for community

We are biologically, cognitively, and spiritually wired to love, be loved, and to belong. We are not meant to do this alone. 

We are unique, complex, spiritual human beings

We all have gifts to share with the world. The most important journey we make is the journey to get in touch with the truth of our soul and the purpose of our life on this planet.

Sustained change happens over time

Change requires courage, an open mind, and a perservering heart. Change is hard at first, messy in the middle, and beautiful at the end.

We are all worthy of love and belonging

We don’t need to be fixed. We are whole, healthy, and full of potential. 

We must design our own life

If we don’t write our own script, someone else will do it for us.

Life is like a compass, not a map

To get to where we’re going, we have to find our inner compass and start walking the path. If we veer off, we take the next best step to get us back on track.

Beliefs are a choice that can be changed

Our beliefs create our reality. They either propel us to or prevent us from living aligned with our passion and purpose.

Fear is our soul's GPS

It is natural to have fear and discomfort as we grow and expand. The trick is allowing ourselves to feel fear while we take action.

Failure is a Faithful Attempt In Learning

Failure is just an event. It is not a characteristic. People cannot be failures.

We are responsible for our life

We are not reponsible for the actions of others or injustices, but we are responsible for how we respond. 

All emotions are healthy

Giving ourselves permission to experience and release emotions is essential to our well-being.

My Approach

My passion is creating a safe and sacred space for people to learn, heal, and grow as spiritual human beings.

As your life coach, I help you see yourself as whole, healthy, and full of potential; knowing you have all the answers within.

I believe no one knows what is best for you more than you do.

While I am your guide, you are the one in charge and responsible for your own healing and growth. I walk beside you throughout your journey offering encouragement, insight, resources, and accountability.

I listen without judgement or agenda.

My curriculum is a customizable to meet your needs. My natural approach is to guide and teach with the goal of empowerment.
