I’m Bethanie Hansen, also known as “Dr. B,” of DrBCoach.Com. With my background in education and coaching, I help adults who want to improve their leadership performance and build on strengths while developing personally. While I coach in many areas, I specialize in the areas of work and life satisfaction, balance, leadership, career development, peak performance, mental and emotional fitness, and strengths. Some of my recent clients have been leaders, directors, vice presidents, middle managers, individual contributors, achievers and high performers in large corporations, healthcare organizations, small businesses, government roles, higher education, religious institutions, and the military.

How can I help you? Using a whole-person approach, and leveraging 28 years’ experience in education, I’ll work with you to focus on your goals and aspirations, any areas for development you want to target, and strategies to move you forward. I love helping people use their personality, traits, and strengths to build confidence and effective communication, while reducing resistance, self sabotage, and tension in their relationships and in the work they do every day.

My Coaching Method (Click to view)

My approach to partnering with you is to learn what you would like to achieve, to help you explore and develop steps toward your goals, and to support you with strategies and tools. You have made it to this point with gifts, abilities, and strengths that can be leveraged for the authentic impact you’d like to have. My holistic, personalized approach is tailored to you and who you are, and were you’d like to go. Together, we’ll use evidence-based practices and tools from the areas of leadership, resilience, adult psychological development, positive psychology, neuroscience, and reflective practice in conversations over zoom.

How it Works (Click to view)

We work together in personalized 1:1 individual coaching sessions, mentor coaching, coaching supervision, or educational workshops conducted virtually via ZOOM.

Individual sessions for 1:1 coaching, mentor coaching, and coaching supervision will be tailored to your needs, objectives, and challenges, over the period in which we’re working together. I follow the ICF Code of Ethics. A typical commitment can range from one session to 10+ sessions, depending on what you seek in our work together. 

Educational workshops focus on a predetermined topic and target one area of stress or growth at a time to help participants make incremental changes that significantly impact life and work. For more details about when the next workshop, please contact me.  

Coaching is for Learning, Growth, and Change

Welcome to coaching. I’ve been an educator and coach for 28 years, and I’ve experienced the challenges of overwhelm, career transitions, advancing to new roles, making work and life compatible, and defining boundaries, too. I have developed my own unique career path in K-12 music education, higher education, coaching, leadership, management, and public speaking. 

What helped me navigate my own direction with confidence has been the tools and strategies I now share with clients through life, career, executive and wellbeing coaching and education. These helped me to “wake up” and reduce my own stress levels, improve my physical, emotional, and social wellbeing, be a better wife and mother, achieve new professional milestones, and move through tough challenges with greater purpose far beyond all of the goals I set for myself. And I believe that is possible for you, too!


Working with me, you join hundreds of clients who have become more confident, identified and applied their strengths, gained control over work-life balance, re-engaged with career roles or transitioned to new ones, improved challenging relationships, set priorities, and mastered inner thoughts that blocked their progress. We’ve also tackled impostor syndrome–that insidious feeling that you don’t really know what you’re doing even though you have a role, the experience, and plenty of qualifications to back it up. 

You can reclaim your power to set and achieve goals, decide what’s next for you, define boundaries, and love who you are and what you do professionally. It is not selfish to invest this time into your own personal and professional growth, in fact, it’s essential.

Let’s get started.

My Mission

I help leaders, coaches, and teachers live and work with renewed power and purpose through coaching and education.

It is by living and working with power and purpose that we change the world.”

A few words from clients....

"Bethanie is an amazing coach. She is so present that she knows exactly how and when to ask powerful questions that make me pause, consider and realize that there is a way out of any situation I'm facing. I can see a significant shift in my mindset and look forward to every session we have."

Lois M., Life Coach

"I've been having regular coaching sessions with Bethanie among others. The insights I've discovered and gained during the coaching sessions with Bethanie have been colossal. I find myself inspired after being coached by her. Thank you, Bethanie!"

Dariush K., Executive Coach

"Bethanie is a sincere, kind, and positive woman.  She is a great listener with a wealth of insights and resources.  I always leave our sessions feeling more hopeful and clear about what the next steps are on my journey.  She is inspirational as a person and a coach." 

David C., Professor

"With Bethanie as my coach, I have established my core values, set new career goals, have a vision/path forward, and developed strategies to make that vision happen. Around my core values in particular, now I’m on a journey to realize them in all aspects of my life, including at work." 

Steve M., Director

"Because of the coaching experience, I've been much more focused on this leg of the journey, rather than the next mile. Coaching has forced me to take time to reflect on what's important to me, particularly on the professional front. Coaching has truly reinvigorated me by creating time and space to be mindful. For example, carving out time in my day to transition from work to personal life is something I've been emphasizing. Finally, I'm really starting to think about transitioning into my next BEST role. Thanks Bethanie!"

Mike L., Manager

“I’ve gained insights into how I present & how I use my energy from my coach - these have been invaluable for me to better prepare & show up for calls/meetings. I also refreshed my strengths & my values, which are helping me design my goals going forward. It’s been such an amazing experience. This coaching has helped me a lot to develop better strategies for taking on new opportunities & responding to challenges.”

Alice S., Director

“Through this coaching experience, I’ve learned to be more aware of the people I talk to and adjust my communication skills based on the situation and audience. This has really changed the way I interact with my peers and leaders, and now I’m stretching to build connections with upper managers within my organization. I must say, the sessions I had with my coach have been awesome! The impact it has had and will have on me will forever change the way I manage, communicate, and interact with people. Thank you so much Bethanie!”

Amar M., Engineering Team Lead
