Growth with coaching, Wendy Dolber

In your work with me, through laser listening, powerful questions, creative coaching tools and a non-judgmental, compassionate attitude, you will find that your core beliefs naturally arise. I will help you learn how to distinquish between beliefs that serve you or hold you back and how to move forward in a way that serves you the best. My ultimate goal is to teach you invaluable tools so that, on your own, you can simplify your thought patterns, lasso your motivation and infuse new energy and passion into your life.

Belief Centered Coaching

I've been helping people move forward in life long before the coaching industry took off. My method of coaching is designed to get to the root of what's holding you back in the most efficient, effective way I know - by dealing directly with self-limiting beliefs as they arise.

Why is this important?

Because behind every unmet goal, every dream deferred, every challenge passed over, there is a fundamental belief holding you back.


Meet Wendy Dolber

Helping people to be happy, free and empowered has been the centerpiece of my life for the last 40 years.

The idea that people are not victims of chance and circumstance, but choose their beliefs, feelings and actions is the core principle of The Option Method. It’s a worldview, as well as a helping modality, which I have immersed myself in these many years.

On a personal level, I began my own journey to happiness, self-confidence and success when I was in my early 20’s. I was lucky to come of age during the Human Potential Movement, a time of robust opportunities for personal growth and development.

While studying for my BA in Psychology, I enrolled in a group therapy training program where I studied dozens of alternative therapies, including BioEnergetics, Encounter, Music & Art Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Gestalt, Behaviorism, Sensitivity Training, Psychodrama and The Option Method, a groundbreaking approach that focused on excavating and challenging self-limiting beliefs.

Exposure to so many modalities was a great opportunity to decide what I wanted to pursue. The Option Method won out hands down because of its amazing results and its straightforward, effective and efficient approach.



Ultimately I decided not to become a mental health practitioner but to focus my energy on bringing this wonderful Method to as many people as possible. Later, becoming a certified coach was a natural progression of my practice already rooted in key coaching competencies, such as powerful questions and well-honed listening skills.

In addition to my coaching work, I have over forty years of business experience as a highly successful manager and analyst in the affordable housing finance industry, serving for many years as Manging Director and group head of the housing bond division of a global financial information company.  

Because The Method is essentially a practice of critical thinking that drills down to the core of what motivates and energizes us, it has been an indispensable tool in my management work and coaching practice.
