Feeling The Love.........
My dream was to take my experiences, tragedies, and traumas and turn them into positive experiences that I share with the world in hopes of helping people live the life they desire, dream of, and deserve. And I have done just that.
I have helped countless people worldwide heal their marriages, relationships, and themselves and transform them into healthy and happy couples and people!
Through my courses, webinars, 1:1 coaching, and group coaching I have been able to save marriages, relationships, and people!
In Love & An Abundance Of Gratitude,
“Hard to express what Heather brought into my world and that of my children! Let’s just get real for a moment: when a mother takes a step to heal and grow it adds tremendous value to her children’s lives! And it definitely has. So very thankful.
I happened upon her Instagram page during one of the most difficult years of the past decade. Something about her words and mission landed deep. I knew I had to dig deeper if I wanted to get through this difficult period stronger and with HOPE. Heather’s energy and vivaciousness for life are contagious. And yet it was her wisdom of experience and living life which sealed the deal. A little back story: I’m over here raising two younger children, recently went through a divorce, sold the home we all loved and am moving forward. It’s not easy by any means but after working with Heather I am hopeful of our future! Of where my path is taking me. Of truly trusting in the flow of life for the first time in years and years!!
I have been blessed by Heather and the seeds she planted in my life which will confuse to have a harvest for years to come. Her love for others and vitality for life are truly special. Didn’t realize how much I needed the reminder: this is our ONE life!! Might has well live it BIG!! All my gratitude and love Heather Carter!!”
Heather helped me find my true happiness and true self by loving me, and challenging me to believe in my own self-worth. She helped improve every relationship I hold dear- my self, my marriage, and my family. If you’re ready to dig deep, resolve all excuses, and change your life, she’ll coach you to it.

“If you're ready and willing to put in the work to love yourself, your partner, and your marriage to the best of your abilities, then Heather is the person for you. She does extremely well with listening, explaining, and giving you an unbiased fresh perspective on the issue at hand. She's prompt, professional, relatable, and unequivocally passionate about helping others. Heather has helped revitalize the communication in my marriage and I couldn't be happier. Thank you!”

“Heather has made a big impact in my day-to-day perspective, my marriage, and all my relationships. She has challenged my thinking and self-limitations in ways no one has. I could tell from day one, she really cared about me and my family and wanted to help. It took a lot of hard work from me and my husband, but our time with Heather has changed our marriage greatly. She is honest and won't listen to excuses; she does a great job of sifting through the surface issues to get to the root of the conflict. Then she builds you up by enforcing respect, confidence, and a positive outlook. I am able to see my husband for who he is and honor that each day while honoring my own values and goals. I am in control of my own happiness and feel much more fulfilled in everything I choose to do. Thank you for your constant support and for sharing your endless knowledge!”
“My journey through codependency had many ups and downs, and it was painful. I had a childhood full of trauma and heartache and was overly attached to my mother. I couldn’t break the codependent pattern with her and continued the pattern within my romantic relationships. I was introduced to Heather by a friend, and I thank God for that introduction. Little did I know what was in store! I worked with Heather for months and weekly, healing my past and codependency. Some weeks were great; others were tough. Pushing through was very difficult, at times, but so worth it in the end. I finally have broken free of codependency and my past traumas. I am so grateful to Heather and all her work with me!”
“I read a few of Heather Carter's LinkedIn postings and became very intrigued by her positive and very REAL messages. Then one day she posted all the characteristics of a codependent relationship-I was familiar with ALL of them. I immediately emailed Heather and we had our 1-hour introductory call that same week. I was hooked by her enthusiasm and coaching skills just after one call. We then began working together weekly for several months.
Heather is refreshing, super smart, and knows her stuff. I was in a period of great change: separation, new home in a new state, and was in the midst of writing a very big alimony check to my ex-husband- all during COVID. Heather was a great source of support, coaching, and feedback. I can't say enough about how supportive Heather was for me when I needed some support. Her method and approach work. Don't hesitate to engage Heather Carter. I am so very happy I did!”
“I began the 'How to unlock your attachment style course' hoping to do just that, having reached a point in my life, and relationships, where I was beginning to wonder where I might be going wrong. Not only has the course helped me to work out what my attachment style is and why it is what it is, it has given me so much more. There are layers upon layers in this course and Heather has structured it perfectly so that each step is almost a building block to the next layer. It felt, at times, as if one door were being unlocked after another.
There wasn't a single aspect of the course that wasn't thought-provoking and massively helpful - I filled three and a half journals full of notes and observations from working through the activities in the course. Completing the Inner Child timeline was a massive thing for me and helped me to piece a lot of things together and gain a better understanding. Learning how to forgive and turn grievance into gratitude was another area of the course that has changed my way of thinking. Setting boundaries too - something I hadn't really done and didn't realise the importance of.
I honestly had so many lightbulb moments about myself, my relationships and the role I played in relationships, some of which brought me to tears - the lesson 'What connects all of us - unlock your secret to love,' was one of those moments, as was the lesson on self-limiting beliefs - what a life changer! Even the understanding of how the conscious and subconscious minds operate was mind-blowing for me.
There's absolutely no way I could have come to the understanding I now have through reading books or listening to podcasts alone - it would have taken me years! Heather's knowledge, insight, understanding and empathy are limitless. The group online meet-ups and 1:1s were indispensable. I gained so much from these interactions and was able to let go of the shame that had gripped me for so long. For the first time, at 56, I have boundaries, I have self-love, I am becoming more resilient and know my worth and I feel more at peace with myself than I ever have. I feel that I am consciously creating the life I want. It's truly amazing!”

“After a 20-year marriage, we thought it was over. Huge stress, blame, no real communication and little understanding of what it really takes to make a marriage work was taking a huge toll on our lives and marriage. We had a wonderful family and from the outside, it looked like we had the perfect marriage, on the inside, it was much different.
We were stuck not knowing what to really do. Once we connected with Heather it all started to click. She worked with each of us individually and also together to help us both see what it takes to have and maintain a wonderful marriage. It takes work!!
Heather is not some school book-taught therapist that hasn’t lived the lessons she teaches. She’s been through so much that helps her completely understand our issues. We both appreciated the fact that Heather truly tells it like it is and never holds anything back. 100% truth sometimes hurts initially but in the end, it’s what’s best.
Heather has helped each of us individually to find who we each truly are, what our wants needs, goals, and dreams are. She helped bring back the connection and the passion we once had!! It’s even better than it ever was!
We like to say we are on “MARRIAGE 2.0”!!
If it wasn’t for Heather we would be done, it’s really as simple as that. Thank You for so much support, your guidance and so much love.”

“When I had my first call with Heather, my life was crashing down all around me. I felt like a passenger, along for the ride while everything around me was descending into chaos. I was blind to what was happening right in front of my eyes. My wife had shut herself off from me, both emotionally and physically, and was engaging in multiple affairs at work. We lived in a great house in a wonderful neighborhood, but we were drowning in debt. I was miserable and it was affecting my relationship with my children. I thought my life was over and I was in deep despair.
Through my work with Heather, I rediscovered myself and got my voice back. The fog lifted and I could see things clearly, perhaps for the first time. I was being manipulated by my lying and cheating spouse, and being blamed for everything wrong with our relationship while I fought desperately to repair it to keep our family together. My friends and family supported me, but they saw the physical, mental, and emotional toll this was having on me. They tried convincing me to leave the relationship but Heather gave me the tools and strength to exhaust every last option before making that decision.
The marriage did not survive but it was not for lack of trying on my part and Heather was my champion. I still believe that the relationship could have been saved, but it takes two people to make a marriage and all my effort was only met with more resistance from my wife. I can walk away knowing that I did everything I could and with my integrity intact, and that is a direct result of Heather's support and encouragement.
Now that I am moving forward with my life, Heather continues to be my biggest supporter and takes as much pleasure in my victories as I do. I am astounded when I think about how far I have come and how much I have grown in such a short period of time. Heather supported me, pushed me, held me accountable, and without her help I would be still stuck in the sunken place I had been living in. I am incredibly grateful for everything she has done to help me, and I am so happy knowing she will help many others.”

“Taking courses from Heather is the best thing I have ever done for myself! I started by taking her vision board workshop which much to my surprise was far more than putting together the board itself! I left that workshop feeling like a new woman, I didn’t realize how much I needed all that I learned that one evening. I then came upon the course I just recently finished. I thought I would just “check it out” I knew I was ready for more but didn’t know what and certainly didn’t know what to expect. This course will blow you away! Heather’s material that she brings to her course is SO SO thought-provoking!! OMG!
It was not easy for me to sit down and ponder about some of these things that I would never have thought about, and it leads to more and more self-awareness and growth!! The first six weeks of this course were amazing for me, we dug deep into the depths of ourselves and we all got so much valuable growth, healing, love, awareness, from this process. Our weekly calls are the best, all of us were shy at first and Heather did most of the talking, but as the weeks went on we all began sharing personal things about ourselves and encouraging and supporting one another, it was truly the best experience!!
Heather’s courses are filled with endless valuable information that we have access to forever, so we get to look back on it when feeling the need to. It’s unreal how much Heather has put into this course, it’s obvious she has studied, learned, absorbed for years and is now sharing it with the world!
Her passion, wisdom, love, humor all shine bright as she guided me through this course and I am a new person because of it. Heather is no bullshit and she will push you and stretch you but always with love and compassion.
Some of the best parts were when Heather shared with us about herself, her life, and her journey to becoming the amazing woman she is. Her life has not been easy, she has a LOT of experience in life itself and it speaks volumes in her work. I know that in taking this course I have become a better version of myself! As we get older and our life changes we can feel stuck or wonder, what’s next? I know I felt like that when I turned 50, what I learned is that I needed some clarity and now I am well on my way!! If you are even slightly thinking of taking one of her courses or workshops, I highly recommend that you go for it! It will change your life forever!!”
“To sign on Heather Carter as a life coach was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. Heather is one of the most sincere and empathetic people I’ve ever met. She is not only passionate about what she believes but she is believable. She taught me to believe in myself again. At mid-life, my health was failing -but in Just a few short weeks she helped me get back on track physically and emotionally. I feel great because my mind and body are healthy. The 28-pound weight loss was just an added bonus! Many of her weekly life lessons were spot on and it was refreshing just talking to her. Everyone needs a Heather Carter in their life. I will never be able to thank her enough”
“Heather is one of the most sincere, genuine, and authentic souls you will ever meet. I reached out to her on a whim because I liked the content that she posted. We ended up working together and in 8 short weeks my life took on a trajectory of unparalleled growth. Heather's business acumen and insight are top-notch to go along with her unrivaled sales skills. She once said to me: "Each client is different and has different needs." This really resonated with me and encapsulates her level of empathy and energy she gives to everyone she works with.
What really distinguishes Heather is her ability to connect on a deep, spiritual & emotional level. We all carry our pain in some form or fashion. Heather helped me realize mine at a time I was incapable of doing so for myself... Not only is she amazing at spotting the 'roadblocks' or 'bottlenecks' hindering you from obtaining your goals, but she will also give you action steps for YOU to carry out in order to start living a better life.
Heather would have never worked with me a few years ago. For a young man; I was more jaded, cynical, and bitter than most anybody. It was my perspective that I had fixed myself before coming to Heather. In actuality, I had just built another wall and put on more armor and masked so much through comedy. Heather called me out where I needed to be called out. In all reality, my wounds were still hemorrhaging profusely. A sense of relief has come into my life, my anguish has been cauterized (I should say "Carterized" lol...pretty corny I know) and the healing process has already begun. If you are considering working with Heather, I implore you to take the leap of faith. Just be ready and willing to put in the work! You will not be disappointed.”
"When I decided to start this journey I knew I had to be 100% honest. To tell you the truth, I was afraid to do that first call because I know being completely honest and open, isn’t always easy. I’m not just back in my jeans, I’m mentally prepared and aware now. I lost 10lbs quickly, but after Heather started mentally digging deep, the weight kept coming off faster and faster.
I’ve lost a total of 60 lbs, but mentally and emotionally I've lost a lot of weight as well. It’s a process but an amazing one if you’re honest with yourself. It’s the tools she embedded that helped me and will continue to use as “Slow and Steady” wins the race. I’d like to say, not only am I physically learning now, she also taught me mental tools to help continue my growth. I anticipated the excitement of the challenges not just the accomplishments, and that came from the “being all in” mind and body.
Heather helped changed my thoughts and outlook on daily routines, balancing the highs and lows and I also gained a lifelong friend. Don’t be scared to start! Change is always hard but rewarding with the right tools and guidance to reach those goals and Heather helped me start me whole mind and body transformation. She has completely transformed my life."

"After a 23-year marriage, 30 years together I was served papers and was headed to divorce. I have 2 adult daughters who are D1 swimmers. We were D1 parents but after I was served, I never was allowed to speak to my daughters because my ex-wife told them lies. We were the family everybody dreamed of a true American family raising the most beautiful girls who had a gift to swim! I was terribly lost, hurt, angry and confused. My ex-wife came from divorced parents, and we told each other for 30 years divorce was not an option. I graduated with a degree in Psychology, but I needed to find a real professional to help me understand exactly what had happened. I needed to reorganize my thoughts. I wanted to know if I was crazy or if the situation was crazy? I chose to hire Heather Carter, which was the best decision of my life, she saved me! Heather and I spent about 1 year together. I never thought I’d ever feel normal again. Heather held me accountable which is exactly what I needed to turn my life around.
I clearly remember telling Heather when I hired her, I don’t believe that you can make me feel normal but let’s give it a shot. I’m so happy today! I moved out of MN to Florida to get a fresh clean start. I found a new career; bought a house and I’m going live happily ever after. No looking back! Thank you, Heather Carter; I’ll never forget you!"

"I watched a decent movie a few years ago called “My weekend with Marilyn” based on a true story of a British guy who was asked to attend to Ms. Monroe while she was filming a movie in England. What a lucky dude.
Via LinkedIn this Spring of 2023 I found a beautiful woman (outside and In, I learned) name Heather Carter. Not sure if she is living in Haight Ashbury or not, but she is definitely a San Fran California old soul.
She cracks me up. She almost makes me cry when she crys. She enlightens me.
She is what I call a Shaman.
I consider myself doubly blessed to have found her (or her, me?). I realize I have not had more intense and vulnerable talks with any other women since my wife back in the good days of 2013 or 2014.
An hour per week when it was actually closer to 90 minutes. Lots of homework. But, everything got easier and became clearer to me when I heard her voice.
I will miss her. I love her and thank God for this gift that He was able to share with me and who has helped me grow and heal as a person in a very short time.
Below, I went back over my scribble notes and captured some of the things that perhaps resonated most with me. As well as insight from her collateral of knowledge.
And who could forget one of her most memorable lines in a video on You Tube re: narcissists “that’s not me in that picture. I know it looks like me and has blonde hair like me, but its not me” LOL always."
