Welcome to HOPE!

We all need help with recovering from old wounds, abuses in our history, and destructive habits that keep us stuck. That's why I'm here. 

As a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist certified by The Grief Recovery Institute, my training and focus is on helping people deal with grief and loss, past abuse issues, and moving into new life stages.  There are over 40 types of losses that we experience in our lives and I can help you process those to help you get unstuck.

As a Life Transition Coach, I help people who want make changes in their lives understand their inner calling and create the plans for their next chapter that will use their innate, God-given skills and create greater satisfaction in their lives. 

My greatest joy is encouraging, empowering, and equipping people to live in a way that they can find deep satisfaction. I consider it a great honor to coach, coax, and encourage people into understanding their gifts. Working together we identify resources and put together plans for living their best life - one that brings them fulfillment and satisfaction.

At heart, I am a “hope junkie” who loves to guide people in validating the whole of who they are.  

I hold a Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. I have spent many years as a leader in the corporate world. Additionally, I am a trained facilitator for the Prepare/Enrich premarital and marital relationship inventory program.

I look forward to getting to know you and being a source of encouragement in your life!

Peace and HOPE!

***Most recent interview regarding moving forward and clearing the decks!***

Welcome to this episode of Carmen's Coaching Corner. In this episode I have a woman who has a wealth and fountain of wisdom! My lovely friend, Gina Pollard. We touch on quite a few different topics, including; grief, trauma, abuse and going through life transitions.



Gina provided a safe and objective, yet nurturing environment to help me deal with a traumatic family death. I am thankful I had a friend refer me to her. She helped me find a direction at a chaotic spiraling time of my life. Sometimes we find ourselves without an oar and she allowed me to find mine.

Gina has been a key part of my emotional health. She is comforting, but straight forward. Gina pushes her clients to stretch their boundaries and become more at peace with whatever is going on in their lives.
— LF
There is something about being in a conversation with Gina that is so liberating. She is powerfully aware of your truest spaces, fully engaged in your pursuit of healing and tirelessly faithful to offer the right words at the right time. She shows up for the people who have been left behind, battered and left helpless. She is an advocate for the tired in heart and for the abandoned.
— SM
... she provided a compassionate ear but did not merely provide solace. She had a vision of health for my family, toward which she gently encouraged us—at a time when we had little hope of surviving what had happened. She did this in a way that provided dignity and good boundaries. I cannot compliment her services more highly.
— KF

Gina has a way of making you feel safe that immediately lets the healing process begin.

The way Gina vulnerably chose to let me into her own loss history gave me the freedom to go deep in my looking at my losses.

Every time I meet with Gina I feel strengthened to live in a more authentic way.
— JE
I have known Gina for a number of years. She is one of the most compassionate people on this planet. She is filled with grace and kindness. She also has a wicked sense of humor.
— RF


God, why do I storm heaven for answers that are already in my heart? Every grace I need has already been given me. Oh, lead me to the Beyond within.
