Meet your coach - Lucy Romao Vandepol BA, MA, PCC, FCA

Confidence Architect ı Mental Fitness & Empowerment Coach ı Higher Education Professional ı Facilitator ı Speaker



I specialize in creating personalized sessions for each client based on their desired intentions & outcomes.

Life's too short to hold yourself back and restrict your oxygen. 

Let's connect! 

My mission is to help you move forward with your intentions

Together we partner to identify your goals, what success looks like to you, and determine the outcome you are looking for. I provide a non-judgmental space for you to openly discuss your challenges, obstacles, opportunities and dreams. Through our conversations, you will come up with the steps that best serve you and your goals. Together, we will revisit and celebrate your progress and make adjustments along the way.

Goals are the seeds of life, and they are waiting to grow. Coaching provides the garden to plant those seeds. During coaching sessions, I ask questions to evoke awareness to help those seeds grow and pick out the weeds that impede personal growth and lead to burnout and exhaustion.

Change often requires a shift in perspective, I'm here to help you identify your disempowering perspectives and what is getting in the way. Once we uncover what is holding you back, we can start working on getting you unstuck and moving forward.

Improve your mental fitness and wellness

Your mind is your best friend. But it can also be your worst enemy. Your mind loves to sabotage you.

My training in Positive Intelligence® provides me with the tools to work with you to strengthen your mental fitness and update your operating system. 


Mental fitness refers to your ability to handle life's challenges with a more positive mindset, and less stress. By strengthening your mental fitness you are able to boost performance, improve your wellbeing and strengthen relationships.


I work with you to strengthen your mental fitness, evoke awareness of your limiting beliefs and saboteurs while also uncovering your super powers, inner Sage and authentic self.

Empower you to get out of your head so you can move forward

I am passionate about empowering others to see the best in themselves, find their advantages & strengths, and intercept their saboteurs. My goal is to empower you to let your true authentic self shine. 

As a coach, I often take on the accountability partner and cheerleader role. I am here to support you in overcoming obstacles holding you back.


I am direct about what I see and hear, including recognizing your progress and hard work and calling you out on how you are getting in your way. I encourage reflection, and I am not afraid to ask difficult questions.


I keep your goals focused and we explore your motivation and what is getting in the way together. I also acknowledge that goals might shift as we work together, and I will work with you on making those pivots while also examining lessons learned.


You will always be the one in the driver's seat because you are the expert in your life and the one who defines success. 

Tap into your natural advantages & fascinate


How we see ourselves is often limited by our inner critic. This is why it's essential to understand how the world sees YOU.

YOU are unique, and different is better.

My training in the How to Fascinate® system provides me with the tools and resources to help you better understand your advantages so that you can embrace your potential.

Learn how the world sees you by completing the Fascination Personality Test®. Your test results will help you better understand your natural advantages and give you language that you can use to communicate your brand.

Reach out if you are curious and want to learn how YOU fascinate.
