About Your Coach

Hello. I am the Rev. Dr. Eileen Epperson, and I am dedicated to helping leaders and individuals find their voices, master forgiveness, and communication, and love the world into being.

With over 33 years of experience as a Presbyterian minister, I have served in various capacities, including parish ministry, chaplaincy in hospitals and hospices, and college chaplaincy during my seminary years in New York City. My work has also included pastoral counseling in a nursing home where I had the privilege of supporting individuals and families. I have also facilitated weekly grief support groups for a remarkable 17 years. This experience has deepened my understanding of the power of forgiveness and the importance of effective communication in navigating through grief and healing.

In my current ministry as a spiritual life-coach, I empower individuals, families, and work teams to release past upsets that are stuck, embrace forgiveness, and communicate gracefully and powerfully. My coaching programs are designed to help leaders expand their performance and find greater satisfaction in their contributions to others.

My expertise lies in the realms of forgiveness, communication, and grief support. I am passionate about helping individuals organize their lives and bring their visions into existence, allowing them to work harmoniously and find fulfillment.I am driven by a deep commitment to ending unnecessary suffering and guiding leaders towards a life of authenticity, compassion, and positive impact. Together, let's embark on a journey of healing, growth, and creating a world filled with love.

Living in northwest Connecticut, USA, I am constantly inspired by the beautiful surroundings and the opportunity to create a brand new partnership with my former husband. I firmly believe in practicing what I coach, and my personal experiences have shaped my approach to coaching and guiding others.

With warm regards,

Rev. Dr. Eileen Epperson
