Hi! I'm Julie Kathryn Quest-Brooks. I am a certified life development and encounter coach.
I live in Texas. I'm married to my soul mate, Buddy. Together, we have 4 grown children and 7 grandkids. My background for the last 30+ years is a pretty solid and constant mix of real estate, building/renovation projects, mediation and ministry. I am currently an active Real Estate Broker (http://tx-hillcountry.com) in the hill country of Texas. Basically, real estate is about walking alongside people, drawing out what they want, what they don't want, helping them get what they do want, and helping them solve the problems and obstacles that get in the way. I have tons of experience with that. And, THAT is the essence of life coaching.
With regard to my coach training, I have three life coach certifications. Add to that my training in mediation, inner healing, and negotiations. Needless to say, I'm a life long learner (my husband jokes that I have more certifications than any one else he knows) so there's a lot I can draw from.
With regard to my faith, I'd call myself a serious pursuer of God. I've been around a while and so have seen a lot of what doesn't work and have found a lot of what does. I'm not finished, of course. But, over the years, I've discovered that Jesus really just wants to do life with us. My goal is to not be religious but rather Spirit led. I am here to lend you some of my faith and expertise as a change expert.
Coaching is about making the changes YOU want to make. Statistics reveal that you are more likely to actually change if you have someone walk alongside you through the process. You have it within yourself but it's important for you to gain new insights, find your motivation, and be accountable to someone as you take steps toward where you want to go. We simply do life better together.
My goal is to "draw YOU out one question at a time." If that sounds like something you'd like to give a try, I look forward to meeting you and helping you make the changes YOU want to make. Schedule a free 20 minute introductory session.

The best way to learn about coaching is to actually experience it!
Julie was very hospitable and warm in her coaching style. She listened well and had an incredible attention to detail/teaching gifting. Although we just met, I felt comfortable sharing. It was very helpful as we coached around a transition that holds many emotions for me. Thanks again. It was a great gift to me.
Coaching with Julie has brought me real transformation. Because of her depth of relationship with Jesus, I can lean into her confidence, in my shaky areas. Julie asks insightful questions and then waits, letting me hear my own answers directly from Jesus. Coaching with Julie is like meeting up for a coffee time with her and Jesus. She makes it that easy.
I have had the privilege of being coached by Julie many times over the past several years. It has been life changing. She has coached me over a wide range of topics - from practical “next step” issues to deep things of my heart. She is very skilled and knowledgeable in using her coaching skills. I have always felt like I can rest and be lead through the process because Julie is very competent and comfortably uses her coaching skills. I have benefitted greatly.
