Her passion for life inspires everyone around her to live their best lives and be present in every moment of their day.
As an award-winning inspirational—and often also humorous—speaker, she delivers with personality, passion and relatable wit. Langelaar also brings genuine experience and humility to every speaking engagement, having embarked on her own creative journey to find her voice and the confidence to use it over many years competing in Toastmasters International speaking competitions and serving as a Toastmasters International chapter president. Dozens of hours spent performing at local improv comedy clubs gave Langelaar additional insight into speaking fast on her feet and helping guide others to tap into their own voices with confidence, flexibility and authority. Her audiences laugh, cry and reflect all while being motivated to find peace, happiness and success.
With expertise in business, sales and conflict resolution, she is also an expert problem-solver who has honed the ability to tackle any challenge head-on, parlaying her diverse skills into a fulfilling career as a highly demanded conflict mediator and a high-conflict coach. One of the strongest tools in Langelaar’s toolbox is her gift for listening and hearing what clients say to tap into their inner strengths, goals and possible perceived stumbling blocks. Her commitment is to help people—both those working through divorce and those on the other side of separating—who are looking to carve out success and find happiness while defining their passions and paths, a task that holds a special place in her heart.
Langelaar’s journey to success wasn’t a walk in the park; it was a rollercoaster ride of resilience and determination. As a single mother of three, she faced countless court battles and the absence of family support. But Langelaar’s spirit never wavered as she pushed through the hardships, fueled by her relentless belief in a brighter future for her children and herself.
Amid the chaos of school runs and personal growth and navigating the complexities of the court system, Langelaar discovered her true calling: mediation and coaching to guide others through their own treacherous journeys. Along the way, she accumulated a treasure trove of knowledge and licenses and transformed herself into a highly skilled mediator, coach and realtor.
Langelaar’s journey taught her invaluable lessons in patience and the power of positive influences, leading her to be an inspiring personal and professional role model. Through her own experience working with a coach, Langelaar reveled in the enriching benefit of having someone take the initiative to learn who she is as a person, and she applies that experience to every client she connects with. Having been on both sides of the mentor/mentee process, she has a keen understanding that everyone needs to home in on self-development and growth that encourages forward progress, rather than work on just one moment in time. Committed to every client excelling in a safe space to grow and learn, Langelaar always strives to be authentically present without judgment and to create a place where clients can lower walls and let down their guard to safely and authentically explore their dreams and navigate paths to achieve their goals.
Whether speaking, mediating or coaching, Langelaar skillfully identifies how to avoid the traps of engaging in unhealthy relationships, thoughts and behaviors to avoid being weighed down by unnecessary conflicts or negativity. She also routinely transforms personal journeys into captivating stories that help others look inward, instead of outward, for change.
Driven by heartfelt curiosity about others, Langelaar is enthusiastic about learning who her co-workers and clients are—what makes them special and drives their interests to help them soar to their greatest heights. An honest accountability partner, she is tenacious and able to quickly pivot to provide genuine support and tailored guidance.
One priceless lesson Langelaar gleaned from coaching and working with clients is that everyone has unique strengths that may be difficult for others to see or appreciate. However, it’s vital we resist allowing others to feed negative thoughts that fuel self-doubt and, instead, learn from our past to move forward and create an incredible and rewarding life.
Now that her children are grown, Langelaar is proud to watch her kids navigate their exciting adult paths. She also loves hiking and exploring scenic views in Colorado as well as traveling and soaking up sun on the beach. She’s also routinely working on hosting workshops for entrepreneurs who want to create more focus, motivation and excitement conquering their goals in 90 days. Whether she’s relaxing or working, she thrives on meeting new people and having the chance to learn about them and connect. An avid reader, Langelaar loves to relax and curl up with self-help books to spark new ideas and to continue learning and exploring ways to engage and enrich the lives of her loved ones and clients. Travel is her big passion, and she enjoys different places, meeting different people.
Langelaar is also a co-author of The Guide to a Smart Divorce: Experts’ Advice for Surviving Divorce.
