I’m Bethanie.

I’m Dr. Bethanie Hansen, also known as Dr. B, educator and coach. I help leaders and educators love, serve, and teach others with power and purpose.

Leaders care about their teams, the people they lead, and the direction they’re headed. As a leader, you want to feel confident in your role and treat people with love and integrity. I’ve helped hundreds of leaders in the tech industry, media, communications, and education handle challenging relationships, set priorities, be more productive, and stop doubting their own abilities. We’ve tackled career transitions, promotions, and change management strategies. And in most cases, we address impostor syndrome–that insidious feeling that you don’t really know what you’re doing, even though you’ve landed a role with significant responsibility and have plenty of qualifications to back it up.

Professional educators care about their students, their potential and growth, and nurturing their students the subject-area. As an educator, you want to love, serve, and teach others without feeling overwhelmed and exhausted or putting yourself last. In coaching educators, we’ve improved classroom management strategies, planning and time management, relationships, communication with parents and stakeholders, teaching online, building wellbeing, and work-life balance. It’s exciting work that brings a sense of  clarity and confidence to those I work with and keeps me growing too!

Yes, you can reclaim your power and purpose, with practical tools to lead with confidence and wellbeing. It isn’t selfish to invest this time into your own growth, in fact, it’s essential. Let’s get started.

I am a educator and coach credentialed by the International Coaching Federation (PCC) and the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBC-HWC), with 25+ years of experience in education and leadership.

My Coaching Method (Click to view)

Even if we haven’t met yet, I believe you have what it takes to succeed through challenging times. 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 wellbeing approach identifies your strengths and gives you greater power to leverage them in those areas where you are most concerned right now using evidence-based practices and tools from the areas of leadership, resilience, adult psychological development, positive psychology,  neuroscience, and reflective practice

How it Works (Click to view)

We work together through personalized 1:1 sessions conducted virtually via ZOOM, tailored to your needs, objectives, and challenges, over a period of 2-6 months based on your goals (I follow the ICF Code of Ethics).

To accelerate your personal and professional growth over time, I also provide a group program that allows you to learn from and with others seeking to achieve similar goals. Here, we target one area of stress or growth at a time, to help you make incremental changes that significantly impact your life and work. 1:1 coaching is not required to join the program.  

My Mission

“I help leaders and educators who love, serve, and teach others reclaim power and purpose so they can lead with confidence and wellbeing.”
