Amy Schoen, MBA, CPCC, PCC
When longtime WBO member Amy Schoen is asked what she does, she describes her unique work this way: “I help marriage-minded singles to recognize and connect with their true love partner. By gaining a clear understanding of their key relationship values, and focusing on meeting people who share their life goals, my clients are able to finally find their marriage partner, get off the dating merry-go-round and, frequently, get married within six months to a year’s time, having the peace of mind that they can now direct their energies towards a life partner and a rewarding family life.”
As a professional life coach and dating/relationship expert, Amy arrived at what is now her life’s work somewhat circuitously. After earning an MBA from Georgetown University, she owned and operated a Bethesda upscale clothing boutique, La Petite Classique, for 13 years. After closing the store in 2003, Amy created Amy’s Eye for Style, an image/wardrobe consulting business, designed to help her clients establish their best image to achieve their goals, including finding a life partner. Now working exclusively with clients who want to achieve success in their personal relationships, Amy focuses on life and relationship coaching and specializes in improving communication problems, helping couples co-create their relationship, and solving dating problems of all kinds.
Amy’s clients are men and women from 30 to 70 -- singles who have never married, as well as those who are divorced or widowed. “Most clients want to feel more confident about themselves and what they can offer to a relationship,” says Amy, whose clients find her through referral, through her website, or after meeting her through a workshop or personal contact through networking. While a large percentage of Amy’s clients are in the DC area, several are across the U.S. and even internationally based. Amy coaches with her clients either face-to-face, on the phone, or through Skype or Facetime.
A self-described “serial entrepreneur,” Amy had a strong business background and retail experience when she was introduced to the Coaches Training Institute of San Raphael, California, which later became her coaching school. “I loved it,” says Amy. “Everything came together and I was able to utilize all of my previous experience.” She likes “being there to support my clients, loves to see their changes and growth,” and enjoys the variety of the many types of people with whom she works. “I help them to see that there is a process and, if they follow that, it will lead to a true love partner.”
Amy works one-on-one, does group coaching and also has a small group utilizing “intimate coaching experience and private coaching combined.” All her clients have access to her proprietary online coaching program, “The Motivated to Marry Dating Secrets” program. Also, as a Certified Professional “whole” Life coach, Amy helps here clients with life balance issues so they have more time and space in their lives to pursue a significant love relationship. This is especially important for the single entrepreneurs that Amy has an affinity for to coach!
Amy’s clients particularly like the fact that her life experience parallels theirs. Divorced in her mid-thirties, she remarried at 42 and gave birth to her son at the age of 48, after coping with infertility issues. Now the mother of an active nine-year-old, Amy spends a lot of time “doing the mom thing,” and loving it.
Amy’s company, Heartmind Connection Coaching, is a perfect resource for people who yearn to “learn a system of how to meet people who share their values so they can meet the right person and eventually have the coupled life they truly envision for themselves. Coach Amy also works closely with clients on their online dating strategy and has successfully helped many men and women represent themselves with online profiles. “Over 80% of my successful clients have met their partner on line. I recommend it to all my clients,” says Amy, noting, “It has to be part of their dating plan.”
Amy is the author of “Motivate to Marry® – Now There is a Better Method to Dating and Relationships” and “Get It Right This Time-- How to Find and Keep Your Ideal Romantic Relationship.” As a professional speaker, Amy often speaks at professional and social organizations’ meetings. She has contributed freelance articles to a variety of publications and has been interviewed on numerous radio and TV stations.
