About Me

Laureen Golden, MEd, LCSW, BCC

At a very early age, an observation struck me: “The Earth and its Inhabitants are hurting … at the hands of humans. Yet despite our best intentions to do things differently, ‘business as usual’ patterns remain locked in.”  From this observation, two questions emerged which have shaped my life.

  1. Why does meaningful change remain so elusive?
  2. How might humanity’s energy and focus shift from destructive to constructive activities?

I believe true leaders play an important role in moving us beyond the quagmire of conflict towards more constructive uses of our energy. My passion is to support the flourishing of these leaders, who work with great purpose, integrity, and care for the whole and are a force for healing our world.  

I’m fascinated by how humans learn and develop. Clients and colleagues value my capacity to “listen the best of who they are into being,” as well as how I connect them to the most relevant resources, at just the right time.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education, a Master’s degree in Special Education, and hold two Montessori certificates.  I also have a Master’s degree in Social Work and I’m a Board Certified Coach (BCC).
