I am Dr. Tinsley,
your Life Coach

The secret to a happy life

"Coaching is the art and practice of enabling individuals and groups to move from where they are to where they want to be in the future; to move to higher levels of fulfillment; and to focus on enhanced performance, possibilities, and reaching one's goals and dreams” (Collins, 2014). As your life coach, I will encourage, challenge, and motivate you to clarify your own life directions, to gain confidence and commitment, and to move forward to the place where you want to be.

I am based in Paoli, Pennsylvania (USA), but I offer online life coaching sessions worldwide. I have helped a multitude of culturally diverse people to realize, embrace, and express their true genuine self, which led to some astonishing and empowering changes in their lives. This is what I can do with you. Assist you with discovery and design for growth and a richer life as well as a more satisfying future. So, are you ready to start?

My story

I Believe in YOU!

I have over 30 years of experience working in the fields of clinical counseling, higher education, athletic administration, and with culturally relevant ministries. I also have a wealth of experience providing appropriate personal and academic growth opportunities for those seeking to become professional counselors as well as for those church leaders and other helping professionals seeking advanced or specialty areas of training and development in multicultural and social justice issues, multicultural organizational development (i.e., diversity, equity, and inclusion), spiritual and Christian interventions, and sports counseling/athlete development.

As a former student-athlete who has been inducted into Augsburg University’s Athletic Hall of Fame, a former sports coach, and an athletic administrator, I am also uniquely positioned to assist, mentor, and coach professionals in a variety of contexts including but not limited to the sports, religious, and corporate industries. I have experiences working with high school and professional athletes, coaches, athletic administrators, and business executives and leaders as well as other professionals who demand high standards of performance in high-pressure contexts. I am excited to say that I am that life coach who is the right guide for you! So, what are you waiting for?

“Before you build a masterpiece you must design it. It’s the same way with life, you know. Too many people go through life living by chance, but when you live by design and know the life you want to create, you are able to create a masterpiece instead of a piece of junk”

Jon Gordon
