Welcome to What’s Next Coaching, LLC.

I honor your inquiry into your future. My passion is helping clients invest in their dreams for a vibrant, meaningful, and rewarding life by design. I offer a variety of programs that work together to deliver results, getting you where you want to go. For me, and most people I know, major life changes aren't easy. And, when midlife change comes, there’s a lot of it - whether it's an empty nest, a job that has ended, taking care of parents, or navigating health concerns. Often it's a combination of many factors. My services help clients sort out the many changes they face to help them chart a solid direction forward. I use online assessment tools to help clients determine next chapter readiness in 20 lifestyle areas. I work with individuals and groups to help interpret these findings and explore broader transition issues to help people fully live into the years ahead.

I am a certified coach through both Retirement Options™ and also the Retirement Project LLC. These two organizations are the leaders in non-financial retirement planning. From early on as a psychology major at the University of Vermont with a focus in clinical practice to my own personal growth work with the Mankind Project and with Couples Coaching Couples, I serve clients with humility and acceptance.

My passion is helping others discover where they want to go and who they want to be. Download my free What's Next Midlife Planner to help you think broadly about all that's part of this next chapter.

Contact me as I'd enjoy learning about your life journey and areas you want to explore. If we both think I can be of value to you, I'll explain more about how I work and the results you might achieve.

All my best, Reed Dewey

What Clients Say About Reed:

Reed helped to open up a new world to me, but by making me do all the work, which wasn't easy to do.  Through his insightful questions and feedback, he compelled me - in a good way - to dig deep internally which enabled me to make discoveries about myself. Ultimately, through Reed's guidance I have gained significant confidence that I have the power to solve my own internal conflicts.

- Roger, Dominical, Costa Rica

“Working with Reed as my coach, was a refreshing and eye-opening experience!  With Reed’s ability to listen past my words and hear the emotions and feelings behind my diatribe of why my life was not working out, I was able to gain clarity and direction that has helped me manage a personal decision that was frightening to me and move in a direction that will enhance my life!  Reed also helped me realize that I have all of the tools I need to fulfill my dream of becoming a business owner as I transition from the corporate world!”

- Anita, Rockville Maryland

Reed helped me see valuable insights as well gave me greater confidence to take control of my life.  Reed is perceptive, patient and honored who I am and where I want to go.  I highly recommend him to anyone looking to make positive life changes - especially during times of transition.

- Will, Takoma Park, Maryland
