Health & Wellness
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.

I am a certified professional coach, with a master’s degree in psychotherapy. I specialize in life guidance, trauma repair and relational issues, and have been in private practice in the field of energy psychology since 1997. I have had extensive training in holistic coaching, as well as subtle anatomy therapy. My early career traces back to arts administration in New York City.
My accreditation includes the Coach Training World in Portland, OR, Southwestern College in Santa Fe, NM, Pratt Institute in NY, and Dawson College in Canada. I study in several Yoga/Tai Chi – Qigong lineages, and volunteer for an international NGO charity organization. You can reach me at: (505) 992-2689 or email@example.com.
Your doubts and fears are holding you back from producing your artistic dream. Your audience awaits, and you are the one holding up the show. You are frustrated that your signature project still sits on the back burner, that you can’t seem to take those first steps to realizing it or can’t seem to sustain the momentum. You dance between that longing for your creativity to be seen, celebrated and cherished by others, and undermining yourself with doubt that you could be successful.
Your dreams want to be exercised and shared. The world is missing out on your gifts, because of these nagging thoughts and the indecision that they bring. You keep putting it off coming up with a million excuses: You don’t have the time. You don’t have the energy, the money or the support. You fear that if you start this project and fail that that would be worse than not starting it at all.
Don’t keep your audience waiting. It is time to give your project wings.
Let me help you bring that artistic dream to life. The world is waiting for your input. Take the first step by setting up an introductory coaching session to start living your dream.
Let me support you in making a plan to bring your project to life.
When I’m not coaching, I love to share the latest research about self-confidence building skills cabaret shows. Over the past two years I have created, performed in and produced 6 cabaret shows. I am currently writing a one-person play about a journey to confidence and living my own brilliance. It includes my struggles with valuing myself, binge watching Netflix, cookie addictions, avoidance shopping, accepting my emotions, believing I am worthy of my dreams and finding the courage and resources to follow them.
I also teach Zumba Fitness, give Portland Walking Tours and dance the Blues, Swing and Argentine Tango. I graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelors Degree in Sociology and minors in French and Gender Studies. I’ve worked for Adoption NW and NW Surrogacy law firms, Portland Women’s Crisis Line and a preschool for families with children at risk for abuse. I received training at Coach Training World in Portland, OR. I help struggling artists to take action steps to bring their creative projects to life. By building confidence in being their authentic self, they create a satisfying and financially sustainable career.
What are your creative dreams? I’d love to hear from you.
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
*resolve a personal or professional communication conflict
*start or finish a creative project
*go back to school
*get more clients
*make more time for the people and pursuits you love

You are a strong, intelligent, and compassionate warrior in your life. You find yourself at midlife, wondering how to lose the status quo so you can be who you really are and remain fierce and vital.
You value your relationship with yourself first and foremost. You know that if you aren’t at your best, you aren’t able to impact your world in the way you want and need to, and you don’t do things half-way.
Midlife to Best Life is a community where warriors gather to reassess our lives. It’s a place to dream, plan, strategize, and weigh the pros and cons of our many possible futures. It’s a place where we lift each other up as we create our best lives together.

As a Whole Person Certified Coach, Carmen Reed-Gilkison approaches the dynamics of midlife holistically. Believing that happiness starts with health, she covers topics around five major life-pillars:
Whether you want to improve your health to ensure vitality into your golden years or live life on your terms by starting a business of your own, this is a supportive, safe place to network and explore the magic and opportunities that midlife holds.
Here’s a video that I did around the question “Are You Settling?” It’s a great conversation starter and further illustrates what my mission is:

Have you heard of The Phantom of the Opera, Finding Neverland, Cinderella, WarHorse, Blue Man Group, Cirque du Soleil, Hairspray, or RENT? I’ve been traveling worldwide as a Stage Manager, working on those shows for most of my career. Talk about a non-stop, very demanding job and lifestyle. As a Production Stage Manager, my work has always been behind the scenes. Working with a show on the road, in a leadership role, is more than just performing. It’s about being a leader, a support structure, a philosopher, a confidante, and a coach. Being on the road with shows in the Entertainment Industry was a childhood passion that I turned into a successful reality. As I’ve grown, my love has shifted to more of a role of service.
My true passion is helping you behind the scenes in your life. I am that catalyst that will inspire, empower, and motivate you to shine your inner light BRIGHT and out into the world. I want to help you un-dim your light.
As a Whole Person Certified Coach and a Chopra Certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Educator, I tap into my professional experience, my discoveries, and the powers of nature to help people with:
– Personal Growth & Self Discovery
– Creating Life Sustainability (Mind, Body, Soul & Life)
– Life Reinvention
– Holistic Wellness
Seven years ago, I gave up my relationship with alcohol. Walking away from that relationship was a life-changing moment that forced me to Reinvent my life. For the first year, I was so focused on not having a drink that everything else seemed to be okay. After that first year, things got interesting. I filled in the alcohol habit with other habits that were non-nourishing. When I realized this, I woke up. I realized that I didn’t know who I was. All those years I chose to spend under the spell of an external force, I never focused on getting to know my True Self or strengthen my connection with Creation.
Since then, I’ve embarked on the journey of Self Realization. To continue my growth, I practice meditation daily (twice if not more), Pranayama, Yoga, Vedanta Philosophy, and other Wisdom Traditions. I eat, breathe, and teach an Ayurvedic Lifestyle to support others and myself on the Self’s journey. I’ve discovered what was necessary for me to nourish my growth, provide sustainability, reinvent my life, and be happy, healthy, and whole.
At Behind the Scenes Coaching, we understand that our passions can take on a life of their own. Too much focus on one area causes us to neglect the other aspects of our life, leading to unfulfillment, poor lifestyle choices, and a decline in vitality. Behind the Scenes Coaching empowers each person to awaken their full potential, happiness, and health so they can share their passion with their clients, on stage, and in life. When we nourish all aspects of life, we create a greater impact in the world.
It’s your turn. I’d love to help you discover yourself, help you create a sustainable life, and reinvent yourself.
Let’s chat for 20 minutes to see how I can support you on your journey. I often run specials on the Discovery Session, so be sure to ask! It’s free, I don’t bite, and besides, you’ll make a new friend.
