I’m driven to align trailblazers with their natural power and grace to go bigger. It thrills me to support people to succeed from where they are, with the amazingness of who they are, having a big ole ripple effect on the world. Not only do I help people to get out of their own way to thrive but really get behind themselves to make their life or business rock. My wide coaching passions encompass working with individuals and groups as a life and solo-entrepreneur coach as well as those touched by the challenge of cancer. I've been a working as a Professional Whole Person Certified Coach (WPCC) for 7 years, originally trained & certified through Coach Training World and deepening my training by becoming a Certified Cancer Journey Coach in 2014 through the Cancer Journey's Panic to Powerful program.
Illness, death, and struggle have been lifelong transformational teachers for me. On top of personal chronic health challenges, a number of dear friends and close family have been impacted by cancer in a very short period of time in my life. Even with my own great tools as a Hospice volunteer and seasoned coach, I was challenged in a whole new way in the face of this bigness. With what seems like overwhelming challenges, by utilizing the gift of skilled support, I’ve experienced powerful personal transformation and witnessed the same in my clients. I’ve learned firsthand what it means to truly decide to be there for oneself. As a result, I want this level of transformation for every single person that reaches out to be coached by me whether they are a cancer survivor asking what now, an entrepreneur, or seeking support at a transition point in life.
Never too far from nature, telemark skiing, and amazing community, I live between two snow-capped peaks in the abundant Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. I work with clients one-on-one and partner with several organizations to offer regional and national group coaching support. Whether driven by passion or necessity, it’s an honor to support trailblazers to thrive and face the big stuff with grace. Life is too precious to not live like you mean it.
Life Coaching with Energy Psychology is a quality, research-based model of coaching that supports you in exploring and changing a wide range of issues. These include life direction clarity, stress reduction, mood regulation, and trauma healing. Clients report benefits in relationships, greater individuation-i.e. perspective through life’s challenges-as well as overall satisfaction.
Life Coaching with Energy Psychology strives for body-mind integration through mindfulness theory and discussion, and via modern Eastern trends.
It may include a chakra analysis of your subtle energy field, and/or astrological computations. Combined with the most current psychotherapeutic and neuroscience findings, the result is self-awareness, leading to more positive and healthy life choices.
For Carl Jung, (the energy of) yoga represented a rich storehouse of inner experience and of the individuation process in particular.

Achieving balance in your overall well-being is critical to achieving success in any area of life. I work with clients to assess their lives holistically and determine what areas feel off balance, what areas they want to achieve new goals in, and where they feel stuck. As an 18-year survivor of working in the corporate world, I’m someone who has experienced similar challenges as my clients (long work weeks, no life balance, burnout, sleep deprivation, poor health, obesity), and deliver a safe and comfortable coaching environment created from empathy, understanding, kindness, and compassion. And as someone who’s achieved my own incredible goals in life, I also help inspire, cheerlead, and motivate my clients to reach their own goals, while providing the tools and accountability to ensure they stay on track.

I help women who feel frustrated and overwhelmed connect with their purpose and reclaim their vitality and joy. Using a combination of wellness and life coaching along with energy work and yoga I help women repurpose their gifts and skills into a life they love. In addition to individual coaching I also offer group and personal retreats. As a self-care expert I draw on over 35 years of experience.
In addition to working with individuals and teaching classes I've been a presenter at events and conferences. I’ve also been quoted as an expert in national and local media including Natural Health magazine. My articles appear in my own blog, Align & Thrive, as well as in publications including Massage and Bodywork.
Perfectionism has been my greatest teacher, best friend, and worst enemy.
I help my coaching clients move forward by helping them stay in the sweet spot between ambition and self-compassion.
I come to coaching with more than a decade as an international language teacher and administrator and yoga instructor. In these cherished roles, I've helped thousands of people achieve their goals through providing a supportive presence and making plans for small consistent changes to produce sustainable, heart-centered, and dare I say: FUN results!
To help my clients tap into their clarity, I use somatic mindfulness techniques such as placing a hand over your heart and belly, feeling your breath, and listening in to what your gut is saying.
I'll offer meditation at the beginning of our sessions to drop you into the rich space of your inner wisdom. These are optional, but powerful at bringing a sense of calm to our sessions according to my clients.
I'm a big believer in celebrating all progress, big and small and finding joy in the process. So if you want to:
*feel better in your skin

I have always been someone people have sought out for help . After realizing there must be something to this, I have decided to change my path and become a healer . Now as a Certified Whole Person Coach I have a skill set allowing me to help people with more efficiency and leaving them with a clear vision to solve almost anything . I have a natural ability to work on serious issues with a light heart allowing a focus on a solution rather than dwelling on the cause .
Hello! I’m Kelli! I’m a Widow Wellness Coach! I received my certificate in Whole Person Coaching, which is completely in line with my belief system. I believe you must pay attention to the whole body: mind, body and soul, to achieve optimal wellness. I practice this in my own life, and am passionate about educating women to encourage their own healing.
I lost my husband to cancer in 2010 and it rocked my foundation. I became a widow at the ripe young age of 40! And, of course, my life has never been the same since. I have suffered deep grief, and have also learned steps to healing. I learned how to take care of my mind, body and soul. I learned how nutrition, fitness and being kind to myself, helped my grieving process and promoted my healing.
I also went to work for hospice, for 5 years, and this took my understanding and knowledge to an entirely different level. My education consisted of daily visits with beautiful patients and families, sharing a most vulnerable part of their life with me. Our stories were different, but our journeys were similar. And, because of this experience, and my own personal losses, I can confidently say I am an expert in grief, loss, and the healing thereafter!
This I know for sure, we only have one life, and it can be taken from us at any given moment. There is so much out there, to do, to see, and to be! There is so much life to live. And I also know LIFE CAN BE AMAZING AGAIN!!
After the dust has settled, and you are ready to be more than “just ok,” let me walk with you as you become the most fabulous, amazing, woman you were created to be! Let me walk beside you as you find your ground, and your amazing bad ass self, and step into the life you dream of, and absolutely deserve.
YOLO baby! Lets do this!!
Ten years ago,
I was a lawyer with my own practice. I had everything going for me: professional goals accomplished, happily married to the man I love, leading a balanced life with healthy food, sports, vacations, you name it.
My Cartesian mind was telling me that everything was under control, that I had ticked all the boxes and that it would be foolish to change a thing.
Then, life hit me.
At age 38, my body was attacked aggressively by an autoimmune disease. The symptoms were so severe that I could not go to work. Even worse, I could not do even the simplest tasks due to fatigue - making a cup of tea could take all my morning energy from me. I was incapacitated… Treatment was not working the way it should, and I almost lost hope that my body would ever restore to health. I was at my wits end. I was desperate…
All I could do, confined in my house, was think:
“Why did I have all these health problems? Why did I worry about everything that might (or might not) happen to a point that my body crushed? Why had I not realised that I had always been stressed, tired, and anxious? If everything was under control, why did I feel lost and overwhelmed by my emotions?”
“Why me? All I ever wanted was to reap the fruit of my hard work and be able to enjoy my happiness and my success. All I ever wanted was inner peace. After all, I had accomplished every goal I had set for myself. I had done everything I was expected to do.”
Tired morally and physically, I heard a quiet, calm but assertive voice that said:
I was surprised by the certainty of that voice, but I was willing to try anything that would bring back my well-being. What I did not realise right away was that this voice had a wisdom of its own. It led me on a healing journey that started from something that I was relatively familiar with - yoga.
Attending local yoga classes relieved me of my stress and helped my body’s renewal. My yoga teacher and I soon became friends, and she recommended I try reflexology. One thing led to another and my reflexologist introduced me to a reputable energy healer.
I could understand the benefits (and the “science”) of yoga and reflexology, but I remained skeptical when it came to alternative healing methods. Nevertheless, out of curiosity and trust, I decided to meet with this energy healer. To my surprise and delight, her therapeutic channeling worked for me.
My healing begins.
During the session, I was deeply moved by the healer’s wisdom and capability to see above and beyond the surface. She reminded me of my innate sensitivity and said: “Stop running away from who you are, and you will get better. Follow the wisdom of your inner self, and you will forever remain healthy.”
After the session, I rediscovered my sensitivity, which I had had since my early childhood, and I could “see, hear and feel” again. At the beginning, it was overwhelming. It was as if I had been struck by lightning. The experience brought me back in touch with my inner wisdom and enhanced my capability to hear my inner voice. Thankfully, the energy healer taught me techniques to manage my energy sensitivity and trained me in putting it to good use, that is, she taught me how to do therapeutic channeling.
This “epiphany” that helped me rediscover my true gift and inner compass has led me to a series of changes thereafter. I practice being in tune with my inner voice at all times and I know that my inner wisdom is aligning me with the will of the universe. I started “bumping into” the right people, experiences and opportunities. One could say that all this was nothing more than “coincidence” but, in fact, it was synchronicity... That’s only part of the magic that happens when we ignore “distractions” and we start to turn within. Following my curiosity and inner voice, I discovered and trained in Reiki, Hypnotherapy, the Enneagram and Whole Person Coaching. I also taught myself to use divining rods so as to do energy evaluations of people and places, which helps me to better understand my clients’ energy needs before healing and balancing them.
A blessing in disguise.
It was only when I hit rock bottom, that I came to realise that there had always been two voices guiding me. One was the voice of my logic, the loud and demanding one that led me to the ultimate deterioration of my well-being. And the other one, that of my inner wisdom - a soft, quiet but powerful voice that always proves to be right; the one that has my best interest in mind;the one that is forever aligned with my life’s mission. A voice that has always been there, but that was ignored and sacrificed at the altar of social convention and family expectations. A voice that makes me feel whole when I listen to it. The voice of love, wisdom and inner peace.
I learnt that for me to hear that voice I had to quieten all the mind chattering, to make time for silence and just listen. Since I had never taken the time to stop and listen to my body and get in touch with my emotions, my body fell ill and forced me to sit tight and listen to its wisdom.
Reborn with a mission.
Since then, I have been healthy and medicine free, I have more love to give myself and others, and the relationships in my life have become better than ever. After years of training and experimenting with my gifts, I have created my own method of well-being, i-Ki Coaching, and I’m blessed to work with people from all over the world. I write books, and I travel the world for talks, workshops, trainings, presentations and sessions.
My mission is to help you to discover, trust and listen to your own inner, innate wisdom and be guided from within. With this skill, you will learn to become more accepting, compassionate and loving towards yourself and others, you will form and sustain healthy, fulfilling and happy relationships; and ultimately, you will find and use your true gifts to fulfil your life’s mission with clarity and equanimity.

Casey Tabolt is an ICF ACC, WPCC certified coach specializing in helping moms rediscover and honor all the parts of themselves in order to take better care of themselves and live more intentional and fulfilling lives.
Casey is a wife and mother of 2, who has been a work from home entrepreneur since 2015. It was in the midst of running her Etsy shop and taking care of a newborn and toddler that she was came face to face with how unsustainable her life had become. She was diagnosed with a severe autoimmune disease that put her in the hospital for 3 months, fighting for her life. She attributes her miraculous recovery to the choice she made to find meaning and purpose in her suffering, her willfulness, and last but not least, her love for her children.
It was through this experience that Casey learned how to reconnect with herself and started rebuilding her life intentionally by honoring her values. She started to debunk the myths of self care that had kept her from taking care of herself in any meaningful way. She adopted a new mindset and felt immense gratitude and appreciation for her new life and the lessons she had learned. She committed herself to personal growth, and took the steps necessary to share her knowledge and be of service to moms who feel invisible in their lives. Casey is passionate about helping moms reconnect to their inner voice; honor their strengths, hopes and dreams; and make self care the feel good habit it needs to be.
Today she spends her time seeking joy, homeschooling and peaceful parenting her kids and supporting moms as they make themselves a priority, follow their dreams and honor their whole selves so they can show up as the best mom possible.
She deeply values service and growth and can help you rediscover your path and yourself all while becoming the mom you were meant to be. She knows the struggles of overcoming our pasts, learning how to develop our own unique parenting philosophies, and maintaining our individuality in the face of motherhood. There is no destination for this journey but we can certainly enjoy the landmarks we reach and celebrate the ground we’ve covered.
She believes in the power of coaching and the truth that you are more than “just a mom.” You deserve to live your best life and set that example for the next generation.

I'm a divorce and transition coach. I help midlife professionals create their authentic life through planning and execution. In addition to years of related training and experience (as a lawyer, negotiator, mediator, HR manager and consultant), I completed my amicable divorce in 2017. I never thought I'd get divorced, but it was the right decision for me. In 2015, I began my self-help journey, reading every self-help book available and listening to hundreds of hours of podcasts. I became interested in coaching by studying the work of Tony Robbins, Jennifer Bailey, Wayne Dyer, Brene Brown, Abraham Hicks, and Gary Zukav, to name a few. I completed course work on the Science of Happiness (under EdX). In 2017, after my divorce, my life has improved dramatically, I created a divorce Meetups group, to help those at various stages support each other and learn about the process. I found that people are afraid of divorce and ill informed. My divorce was amicable and I didn't want others to experience the confusion, self-doubt, and judgment that plagued me. Although, I have the experience and training to help people confront major life decisions such as relocation, divorce, separation, career change, co-parenting, life dissatisfaction, and illness, I also have the personal experience of taking action in major areas of my life and overcoming adversity. If you're struggling with your relationship, career, or other situation, and are considering whether to move on; or if you're just plain stuck, I can help you identify the issues, organize them, and develop an action plan to move you forward, and live your most authentic life. Your fulfillment has no price tag. Investing in yourself is critical to your well-being, and essential to your growth. My process entails forging a strong, safe, and trusting relationship with my client, reflecting and observing, using proven coaching techniques, asking the right questions, and holding my client accountable for his or her commitments. If you're ready to own your situation and improve it, and you're least thinking about what to do, please schedule a complimentary "get acquainted" session, at no cost. I'm looking forward to hearing from and learning about you!

As your Whole Person Coach, I will help you find your own authenticity so you can live a life you thought was only possible in your dreams. This is not therapy – we won’t focus on the past or diagnose you based on an existing set of conditions. This is not consulting – I don’t provide advice or “do the work” for you. What I will do is create a confidential, judgment-free space for you to express who you are as you learn to feel at home in your own skin. We will go through some exercises together to help us both identify and understand the areas you’d like to work on together. I will remain curious with you, asking dozens of thoughtful questions, hearing you fully and completely as you unravel your own brilliance.
I will help you define your dream life and, most importantly, I will help you get there.
With love, light and gratitude,
Are you ready for a transformation? Are you tired of feeling uncertain about where your life is headed? Do you feel like you're in a rut? Do you regularly feel drained by pain, grief, or a lack of passion?
If any of the above sounds like you, look no further. I work with people all over the world to help them transform their lives and give them direction and purpose.. to move past the feelings of pain or uncertainty and into a place of peace. As a result, my clients feel confident, fulfilled and at ease in their own skin.
Whatever the type of life change you're looking for, we can create it together:
- Social life/relationships
- Family relations
- Entrepreneur/business development
- Romance/sex life
- Personal satisfaction
- Goal attainment
- Purposeful living
I will help you define your dream life and, most importantly, I will help you get there.
A former professional soccer player, Kirby helps former athletes who struggle to fill a void - and identity - in life post sport. She teaches them how to confidently lead a life they want, a life they love as much as their sport.
Are You Thriving?
The clinical requirements determining life or death are the existence of a beating heart and oxygen circulating through our lungs.
How do you want to experience your life? Do you want to be clinically alive or do you want to be THRIVING?
I believe connection is the key to a whole-hearted, thriving existence. It's a basic need next to the air we breathe and the beating of our hearts.
Our need to connect is so important we often compromise the true essence of who we are and how we allow ourselves to be seen by others. We do this to fit in, to stay connected. However, in doing so, many of us lose our true selves and then we fail to thrive.
My passion and purpose as a coach is to guide you on the journey of reawakening, reviving, and evolving you!
The foundation of every relationship you have with family & friends, career, food, health, money, sex, environment, creativity and your higher self is created from your internal relationship with you. To be fully alive, thriving, and connected with others (even God/Source/Universe), one must make the relationship to self the most important element in your life. Your wants, dreams, and desires matter. When they are fully embraced and expressed, you are a gift to the world.
If you're ready to take that journey, I'd love to be your guide in a life-changing transformation.
ANSWER THIS QUESTION: WHAT BRINGS YOU JOY?
I’m Robin and I help depleted givers discover joy. You’ll hear my story later, but… could this be yours?
You are a GIVER: Busy, involved, committed. Your life feels complete. You have important people and situations to pour your heart into. But you have been giving so much to so many, you are depleted. You want to feel joy and excitement, but you are overscheduled. Joy isn’t even on your list. Answering the question of “what brings me joy” stumps you at first. You’re not sure if it’s ok to ask for more. Your life is full and should feel very rewarding. You worry that if you want to seek joy for yourself, you will appear selfish or ungrateful.
You admit you can’t stay depleted forever. You want to have a full bucket so you have something to share. This is what really matters to you. You could be more helpful to others if you had more within.
And, if you are honest, you want to have a full bucket for you. You want to have energy, zest, spontaneous adventures and fun. You want to feel great about your life, the whole thing, even the self-care part… the part that always comes last, if it comes at all.
Spare time is nonexistent, and you don’t believe you should slow down to focus on yourself. You don’t want to give anything up, but you recognize that if you had the time, things would be different. You would add in some of the things that used to make your heart sing, things that used to make you feel most alive.
Life is full, life is busy, yet your deepest fear is that this is all there is.
I’VE BEEN THERE AND IT ISN'T FUN
I was last on my own lists. Who am I kidding, my name never even made it onto the page. I love being a giver. The world is hurting and I can do something about it. All of my endeavors have involved giving: Contributing to a marriage, being actively involved in the lives of our two children, running a nutrition counseling practice for those with eating disorders, building a youth ministry program, providing life enrichment for senior citizens in care homes.
To me, giving is as natural as breathing.
But giving to myself… that’s another story.
I rarely factored myself into any of the above. I did not want to address my own needs. I didn’t think there was time. And I believed it was selfish. My thought was, “I am selfless, I am here for others!” I ignored multiple warnings from loved ones. You know, “You have to take care of yourself if you want to be able to take care of anyone else.” I thought they were wrong, that I am not like other people. I am a giver.
Then it happened… I ran myself into the ground. It all came to a screeching halt. I crashed and burned.
I became apathetic – me! – I didn’t care.
I did NOT care.
You know those stories of people who survived their own deaths? I could relate. I felt like I had flatlined. Let me say, it was scary, uncharted territory, and I did not like being there. My bucket was empty and I could no longer give.
I did not know that seeking joy for myself could have prevented this. I had been a happy person, living the life I wanted. But happiness and joy are different. I had neglected my own personal joy for so long– never addressing what brings ME joy. It was all about bringing OTHERS joy - and I had mountains of inner work to do as a result.
I got professional help. It took so much time out of my schedule. I missed 6 weeks of work. I could not face the fact that I didn’t care about work, so I didn’t go in. I didn’t get paid. I felt like such a failure. I learned that I had become depressed because I had not been meeting my own basic needs. For the first time, I thought, “What in the heck do I NEED?”
I realized that one of my greatest sources of joy was self-care and I was no longer going to ignore my needs.
BEAUTY FROM THE ASHES
I now try to prioritize my needs because of the joy it gives me. It feels great! I still love reaching out to others, I just remember to reach out to myself.
When my personal joy bucket is full, I have so much to give. THE TRUTH IS, WHEN I AM JOYFUL, I HAVE EVEN MORE TO GIVE THAN I EVER HAD BEFORE! I would love to help you add joy to your life before it’s too late, before you have nothing to give. Let’s figure out what brings YOU joy. Let’s fill YOUR joy bucket together and watch it overflow!
Here is the beautiful thing that must not be overlooked: Seeking joy is not selfish! It’s the exact opposite, because joy is contagious! It’s impossible to fill your joy bucket without it spilling over. Simply put, joy coaching is like a “buy one, get a load free” investment.
JOY COACHING IS A THING BECAUSE I SAID SO
I had never heard of a joy coach, but that didn’t matter. I knew that I could help depleted givers add joy to their lives, so I took a leap of faith and got the training and certification I needed. My clients have LOVED adding joy to their lives! Every one of them has had a different answer to the “what brings you joy” question. Some find it in adventure, some find it in stronger relationships, others find it in improving their health, adopting quiet time, strengthening their faith, or finding a career they love.
JOY WITH YOUR CHILDREN: A working mom wanted a closer relationship with her son. Through joy coaching, she learned that she really didn’t know his interests, so she asked him questions to feel better connected. They discovered they both enjoy some of the same music and began attending concerts together. They now share songs and discuss the impact of the music on their lives. She is overjoyed at knowing her son on a deeper level!
JOY WITH YOUR SWEETHEART: An author was having trouble with his marriage. He and his wife were living on separate continents and she wouldn’t open his messages or take his calls. Through joy coaching, he realized knowing God brings him joy. As he spent more time deepening his relationship with God, it changed his thinking. He viewed his marriage differently. He wrote his wife a 10-page love letter from his new-found perspective and she opened it. They are now eagerly waiting to be reunited.
JOY AT ANY SIZE: A budding entrepreneur wanted to have confidence in her body and start dating. Joy coaching helped her discover that dancing makes her feel alive. She began to incorporate dance breaks as rewards into her workday. She loved the feel of the dance breaks and extended them. Without even trying, she began to love her body. She has since begun meeting new people.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
What’s your story?
You must be a giver or you wouldn’t have made it to the end.
Be honest, are you feeling depleted? Did you know that adding joy on a personal level can keep your bucket from running empty and add richness that can be shared?
And, the big question: What brings you joy? I can help you answer the big question, and I can help you obtain whatever it is that brings you joy. My hope is that joy coaching can help you do what you love most: Give fully to the people and causes you care about, by also giving to yourself.

Hello, I'm Evan. I'm a Professional Whole Person Certified Coach with an ACC level certification from the International Coaching Federation, and I work with people experiencing the end of a romantic relationship. It is my mission to help people who are struggling with a breakup or divorce to heal as quickly as possible, while minimizing the suffering they go through, so they can put the past behind them and move forward stronger than ever.
Hi there! I’m SO happy you came across my page :)
My name is Kirra and I could be called a lot of things: content creator, influencer, manifestation coach & teacher…
But more important than those labels, I want to share my WHY behind what I do.
I’m passionate about helping change-makers, light workers, and purpose-driven entrepreneurs BREAK FREE from the past, RISE ABOVE their current circumstances, and SHINE THEIR LIGHT on this world.
Together, we’ll work on unleashing your highest potential so you can live in alignment and create a life of freedom, joy, and abundance!
I specialize in mindset, manifestation, and subconscious reprogramming. If this resonates with you, I’d love to hear from you! :)
I work with strong women who feel 'not good enough' and suffer with a low self image. We focus on self-love and trust to awaken your authenticity and passion for life. You'll learn to navigate difficult relationships, communicate beautifully and use your wise and powerful voice. With confidence, you will make change and fall back in love with your self and your life. My background and personal experience includes: military spouses, empty nester's, daughters of narcissistic moms, toxic families and newly single after long term marriages. Thank you!
I am a Resilience and Wellness Coach and Health Practitioner passionate about whole person wellness and mind-body health. The combination of my education and experience allow me to inspire others to explore and discover their greatest potential while finding restorative balance within themselves and in their lives. I have over two decades of experience in providing support during times of crisis, trauma, and grief. I focus on stress management, grief and loss, self-awareness and relationships, nervous system restoration and regulation, and building resilience skills for life. My education has given me the tools to offer an integrative approach; ranging from neuroscience, neurobiology, somatic experiencing, body-based movement, self-compassion, mindfulness, positive psychology, strength-based mindset, and depth psychology.
I have a balance of education and experience. I obtained my Doctor of Psychology with my dissertation research based upon stress in the fields of Fire, EMS, and Law Enforcement. For seven years I provided psychotherapy and treatment services in a private practice setting. Prior to being in private practice I worked in the medical field for fifteen years; five years in the hospital as a CNA, ICU Technician, and Emergency Department Technician, and ten years on a 911 ambulance as an EMT. I have seven years law enforcement experience as a Deputy Coroner/Board Certified Death Investigator along with being a Registered Yoga Teacher and Certified Health Practitioner. Each one of these careers has paved the path for the passion I have for whole-person wellness.
My proactive approach focuses mainly on prevention. Specifically, I address the missing link in health and wellness - getting to the root cause, which more often than not, is a dysregulated nervous system. I utilize an integrative approach with science-based modalities to help clients to reset their nervous system. I provide a safe environment for people to discover, cultivate, and restore from past challenges to create a place of healing within themselves. Once back to a regulated state, clients learn a proactive way to manage stressors and thrive in life’s challenges.
I am always learning and researching the best and most effective ways to help guide people in their journey to wellness. I use various techniques in the guidance process. I am excited for this soulful, heart forward adventure and I look forward to meeting you along this journey.
