About me

As a certified professional coach and trainer, Dora Carpenter inspires and empowers individuals for personal and professional success. She is known for challenging and motivating clients to take forward-moving action and work through life transitions, grief, and fear. Her gentle and empathetic, yet expressive approach is articulated in her coaching, training, writing, and speaking. A client says, "She is a magnetic mentoring coach who journeys with you through your experience." Working many years in the death care industry and assisting hundreds of families with making final arrangements for loved ones birthed her passion for coaching. Dora says, "too many hopes and dreams are buried in the cemetery" and she wants to encourage people to live out their potential in the now. Hence, her mantra is "Everything in life is temporary, including life itself. Decide to say Yes! to the gift of now.” Dora openly shares her story of moving beyond being temporarily housebound with severe panic attacks while running a successful business and being stuck in the time capsule of grief for many years relying on the myth that ‘it just takes time.’ Dora Carpenter is a certified life coach, certified grief coach, and certified consumer's funeral consultant. She is also one of a select group personally licensed by internationally known best-selling author and motivational speaker, the late Susan Jeffers, Ph.D., to teach Feel the Fear® work in the United States. She is a member of the International Association of Professional Life Coaches and the Women’s Speaker Association. As Founder and Program Director of From Grief to Gratitude Coach Certification Program, Dora Carpenter trains and certifies grief coaches to help individuals move from grief to gratitude in the shortest time possible.She is Founder of The Aniya Center, a non-profit organization that provides grief support services to individuals in the Washington, D.C. area.  A native Washingtonian, and graduate of Strayer University, Dora has owned and operated several businesses and proudly maintains a business partnership with her daughter, Christina R. Ferguson. Dora Carpenter has been recognized by the National Association of Distinguished Professionals and has appeared on various media outlets.
