A Word From Our Founder...

Ignite Your Potential was founded over 13 years ago (2008) by Dr. Colleen Campbell who was inspired, first and foremost, from her own healing and growth process.

I came into young adulthood with low self-esteem, neurosis, negative self-talk, volatile relationships, and an active addictive cycle as my primary coping skill. I was struggling deeply and there were times when my future seemed grim.

Working with a therapist and reading Scott Peck's A Road Less Traveled began a journey where I started to think that my idealistic notions, that I barely dared to dream, might be more than just a fantasy. If I could heal myself, I could help others on their journey to health, wholeness, knowing themselves: success as they define it.

I have come pretty far on the road of change. I have been doing personal and professional work in the realm of change and growth for the last 25 years and have a passion to bring this to others.

Ignite Your Potential stands out as a resource for smart, creative, people who want to change - to have more fulfilling lives and careers and to figure out how they can be who they are meant to be. The coaches and therapists here help in a way that no other place is helping clients: through a blend of top-notch career, executive, and life coaching and their own experience in the field.
