About Carrie Doubts
I empower people who have lost a spouse or life partner due to divorce or death and are struggling to discover how to be a “me” after being a “we” for so long. As the founder of Life’s Next Chapter Coaching, my passion is helping men and women complete the grieving process, create new dreams for themselves after this monumental life change, and powerfully rebuild their lives.
My journey to do this work began when my husband of thirteen years and I suddenly divorced. Like many of you, I found it difficult to “just move on” and “get over it”. I was in excruciating pain and I knew it wasn’t going to go away overnight. However, I also knew that I needed to learn from this experience so I could avoid repeating my mistakes in the future. I felt compelled to create something meaningful and beautiful out of this pain, so I immersed myself in self-development and personal growth.
I went back to school and earned a Master of Arts in Spiritual Psychology with an Emphasis in Consciousness, Health, and Healing from the University of Santa Monica. I am a faculty member in the Spiritual Psychology Program at the University ( for 10+ years) and earned my professional coaching certification from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). I am also a Certified Grief Counselor by the American Academy of Grief Counseling. I hold the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential with International Coach Federation (ICF). In 2015, I completed the Mentor Coach Certification Program at Invite Change. I am also completing the certification process to become a Transformational Presence Coach through the Center for Transformational Presence Coaching and Leadership.
I founded Life’s Next Chapter Coaching as a company dedicated to empowering, guiding, and supporting women who are grieving the loss of a spouse or partner due to divorce or death.
Today, I’m the proud mother of a twenty-something daughter and live in Fairfield, Ohio with my second husband and two beloved Dobermans. I believe in the value of service and spend much of my free time volunteering for the Hospice of Cincinnati. I have also served as a child advocate for the organization Guardian ad Litem. When I’m not coaching, volunteering, or enjoying time with my family, I love playing the French horn and Celtic harp at various community events.
