Additionally, as an entrepreneur and business owner, I managed a staff of professionals, training and promoting their careers as well as the agency.  After 20 plus years, I moved from Alaska to North Texas, where I am happy to be. Even though I still have active property and casualty and life and health insurance licenses in Texas, I decided to make one more change. I transitioned my insurance and business consulting knowledge to the more personal Life Coaching model.  My intention and methods are solution focused -- based on the goals my client(s) wants to achieve. I work with individuals, couples, and groups, providing one on one help, facilitating psycho-educational groups, and providing relationship coaching.  


I help adults of all ages with many facets of their lives, including:


  • career change

  • grief processing

  • surviving suicide

  • habit breaking

  • making the unknown known

  • relationship enhancement

  • divorce recovery


     My coaching style is open and respectful but direct. I assume my clients come to work with me because they are looking for help in making a transition that's been hard to do alone. So, we roll up our sleeves together. Making changes incudes identifying roadblocks in your pathway and envisioning a future past them. I can help develop a plan to reach your goals according to your strengths, talents, skills, opportunities, and desires.  


     Now, as Business Director, I bring my other set of skills to the table keeping up with agency growth, promotion, accountability, credentialing, public relations, employee tracks, etc.  And a possible "horizon" project is establishing the non-profit part of Hillside Counseling so we can have more resources to reach out and be a bigger part....making a healthier community!


    My experience, training and life's journey has converged to bring me to a place of gratitude and fun. I get to help people connect with a life that is more satisfying and rewarding in both their professional and personal selves.  And MY litmus test?  So am I!

Chaning directions!

My name is Jeff Schulz and I am a Professional Life Coach and Hillside's Business Director.  Wearing a couple of hats (at least), let me introduce myself.


I have always gravitated towards helping others and guiding individuals and families to ensure a better future. My career path started with selling life insurance in Iowa, following in my dad's footsteps.  A few years later I moved to Anchorage, Alaska and became an insurance agent with Allstate Insurance Company, later I owned my insurance agency in Anchorage.  I currently maintain my property and casualty and life and health insurance licenses in Texas, and I held my series 6 and 63 securities licenses, enabling me to participate in third party financial planning and investment procurement.
