I've spent most of my life as an educator, professor, and leader helping others realize their full potential.
But at some point, I realized I wasn't thriving in life.
I felt unfulfilled in my work and life. Everywhere I went, I tried to make a difference but inside I just felt different. I'd tried almost everything to feel better: looking for new jobs, doing therapy, yoga and meditation, reading TONS of self-help books, doing endless online surveys to figure out who I really was, innovating and endlessly working to change what needed to be improved in higher education. Still, I couldn't consistently feel free or satisfied. Instead, I felt stuck with what I disliked. I had a sense something more was possible for my life. But I didn't know what that was or how to get there. At the same time, my life looked pretty amazing on the outside. It just didn't feel that way inside. There insecurity and dissatisfaction lurked. So, I pushed harder, trying to get others to value my work by doing more.
Still, I knew there must be a way to feel better.
But I didn't know how. So, I enrolled in a life coaching program for women and began connecting with what I wanted for my life. I'd always felt more comfortable trying to make a difference for others and continuously improving what wasn't working than allowing myself to dream. After gaining a sense of what I wanted, I could begin living my life--a life I loved from the inside instead of pouring my effort into being what the world needed me to be. I began choosing new, fulfilling ways to live and learned to stop repeating old, dissatisfying patterns. Now, my life feels very different. Joyful. Creative. Spacious. I can move through challenging emotions and life's bumps without overwhelm. Life no longer lives me. I live life.
Now, I support others in living lives they love--wildly beautiful lives.
As a life coach, I work with women who’ve spent a lot of their life trying--trying to make a difference or be the right thing for others. I know what it’s like to try to feel fulfilled, but to leave classes feeling stupid for struggling to make any real change. Often, I knew what I should do to feel better but I could never do it consistently. It just didn't work for me. This is why my work as a life coach is rooted in understanding neurodivergence, high sensitivity and creativity and honoring the assets of these ways of being in the world. It's also why my work is trauma informed and works with the body to create transformation that sticks (and inspires!).

I’ve been feeling for awhile that it’s time for me to STEP UP into a greater, more aligned way of being. However, when I attempted to accomplish the goals I had in mind—like creating space for creative expression and making a career change—I felt anxious and stuck. As a person who prides herself on getting things done, this was terribly frustrating. Molly and this experience taught me how to connect with my true self, the one beyond the roles I play, and find power, connection, and comfort within. I learned to value and listen to myself more, protect my energy and tap into self-compassion. My days have more intentionality. I care less about disappointing others and more about disappointing myself. Working with Molly has made me better equipped to make a real difference in the world.

Women can be skating by and existing and not realizing it. Nothing's bad but nothing's really good either. We don't realize what we're missing. This experience teaches you how to learn for yourself, tap into what you already have, and get the most from yourself in a way that feels good. Before this experience, I had trouble setting boundaries at work. I didn't know if I'd ever get to the point where I could set limits. This class gave me what I needed to move forward, to get out of the cycle I was in, set limits, and make new choices. I know what's important now. I've gained tricks to help myself when I'm feeling down. I'm more calm. I'm more productive now because I don't get overwhelmed and put things off. I start small and I've gained the confidence to take on projects that excite me.
My Background & Experience
Molly Ware, PhD
I live in beautiful Bellingham, WA. It's my home and I love it here. I spend as much time hiking, mountain biking, and exploring the natural world as possible. Most of the time my chocolate lab Remi, my best friend and mentor, joins me on these adventures. Otherwise, I spend my time gardening for hours on end, working on my memoir, which I'm hoping to finish this year, and creating a getaway with my sweetie Mike on our land on Lopez Island.
I'm also a tenured professor at Western Washington University and a former middle school teacher. In my 20+ years as an educator trying to make a difference that changed schools for the better, I created a lot of new and innovative programs, served as a university-wide leader, and coached and consulted with executives, teams, and students. My favorite part of my work these days is as a coach, helping women blow their minds about what's possible for their lives and how good life can feel and be. I've participated in a variety of coaching programs with Nicholas Janni, Coaches Rising, the Strozzi Institute, and trauma-sensitive mindfulness communities and am always learning ways to better support lasting and inspiring transformation.
