When there is no human hope, there is that hope that carries us forward, humble, simple—but it gives a joy, at times a great joy, at times only of peace, but the security that hope does not disappoint: hope doesn’t disappoint.”

Pope Francis

Bryan C. Holtz

I was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL and graduated from UNF with Building Construction Degree, while playing on the tennis team.  I worked for an apartment development company as an owners representative, when I discerned to become a Franciscan friar missionary in NYC, taking care of the poor, guiding individuals in coaching and spiritual direction, and traveling the world giving retreats.   I left religious life to study to be a diocesan priest for the Diocese of St. Augustine and earned my philosophy degree and Masters of Divinity at St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary.  I am currently a life coach for anything from A to Z.  

My passion starts in helping individuals “before you fall apart” to “thriving in life’s personal purpose for you”, which covers spiritual, physical, and mental health; life goals; marriage and family; relationships in general; ADHD; addictions; phobias; emotional and behavioral management; vocational and career discernment. Basically, my view is, if you have a problem, let’s solve it before you fall apart and start working together to take control of your life, in order to thrive.

“The only way that we can live is if we grow. The only way we can grow is if we change. The only way we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we are exposed is if we throw ourselves into the open... Life is more exciting when things are uncertain. Uncertainty teaches resilience, and resilience gives me the awareness I need to become my best self."
