Coaching Bio:

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.
~ Sonu Shamdasani

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 briisebastian@gmail.com.

Coaching Bio:

We all need Love, Gratitude, and Happiness. It’s a challenge to own and share these, as well as what makes us unique. We need to build our Confidence, Connection, and Comfort. I help clients to develop and own these skills.

I work with clients to give them the tools they need to have enjoyable and fulfilling Social, Professional, and Romantic Relationships. We’re more capable than we give ourselves credit for. We just need some Guidance, Encouragement, and Support.

That’s where I come in. As a Life Coach, I’m trained to be the listener clients’ need. Beyond that, I have a B.S. in Communication Studies with a Minor in Health. I focus on relationships and their impact on us and our stress levels.

Together we will master Confidence, Connection, and Comfort so we can be in control of our Love, Gratitude, and Happiness, and make the most of our Social, Professional, and Romantic Relationships.

I have a number of free resources on my site, JustinCassens.com, and I offer a Free Exploratory Session to show how I can help and answer any questions you might have. I look forward to helping you make the life changes you need to put Love, Gratitude, and Happiness in your life.

Until then,
Take care and be kind.

Coaching Bio:

This is your life. Your story. The journey to your destiny.

I invite you to take a moment and reflect on where you find yourself in this season of life. Are you satisfied? Living your destiny? Unapologetically embracing all of who you are? Or… Do you feel lost? Frustrated? Confused as to who you are and what you stand for? Limited by your career? Stuck in achieving your goals? Paralyzed or overwhelmed with what’s next in your journey?
If these questions resonate with you, I encourage you to give yourself the opportunity to envision a different story, one where you:

Embrace all of who God created you to be
Experience the freedom of being truly connected
Discover your own voice and the power it holds in the world
Generate changes in your life to support your personal and professional goals
Step boldly into your life’s purpose

How does that story sound?
You only have one life to live. Your destiny awaits you. So, are you ready to break through the frustrations in your life and the limitations in your career?

My name is Eva Cruz Pena and I’m a destiny designer for brave Latinas who are ready to reclaim their power, step boldly into their purpose, and voice their truth from a grounded identity in God.

My 15 years of education and training in nursing, theology, military chaplaincy and mental health, along with my life’s experiences (a few of the big ones are: moving to a different country to pursue my career, navigating the intricacies of being a Latina, balancing being a woman, wife, mother, friend, entrepreneur and artist) allow me to understand the dynamics of the human nature; therefore allowing me to coach from a holistic perspective.

My mission to thrive with passion, compassion, humor and style is evident in my approach as a coach:
I am passionate about empowering women to live grounded in their identity, fully connected to all parts of their being and using their voices to step boldly into their destiny enacting positive change in themselves and their environment.
My compassion shows through as I create a safe space that allows clients to look at areas of their lives that they want to change, enhance or awaken.
I believe humor is key to having a joy-filled heart, therefore; I work with my clients in finding ways to stay positive and enjoy the little things in life that bring joy and make souls smile.
My style is unique to my personality: caring, empathic, brave, vivacious, fun, creative, beautiful, grounded, strong, intuitive, passionate, spiritual, and unapologetic. It shows in the coaching relationship as I actively listen for the client’s strengths and reflect them back in order to create the awareness for the client to realize she has all the essential tools to succeed and self-innovate.

So, what are you waiting for? Any of what I’ve mentioned above speaks to you? Schedule your free 30 minute consultation via phone, Skype/FaceTime or in person if you are in Portland, OR.
I am available Tuesdays- Fridays from 10:00- 2:00pm (PST). If those times and days don’t work – contact me and I’ll do my best to accommodate your schedule.

Coaching Bio:

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.

Coaching Bio:

As a Whole Person Life Coach, Lucy works with women who are in the thick of life’s demands.  They are coping with transitions such as divorce, parenthood or career change.  They’re seeking the balance, personal authenticity and vibrance of a purpose driven life.  They’re striving to build deep connection in their personal relationships, to truly see and know themselves and others.  She knows that we each have times in our lives when we feel disconnected with what fulfills us, angry at the situations we find ourselves in or perpetually grasping for more satisfying relationships with those we care about.

As a coach, she believes that compassionate listening is the most powerful tool she has, creating space for her client’s knowledge, vision and strength to be reflected back to them so that they may use their own wisdom to move forward.  Through coaching, her clients explore new perspectives and possibilities, building self-trust and confidence.  They rework their definition of well-being, nourished by self awareness and empowerment, giving light to their wholeness.

Lucy earned her BA at the Friends World Program of Long Island University, an international school dedicated to experiential learning and global citizenship.  She received her training as a Whole Person Life Coach through Baraka Institute/Coach Training World.  She now lives in Hood River, Oregon, with her husband and two children.  She finds balance in life through supportive friendships, family, delicious food, a rekindled love of dance, exploring the world through her children’s eyes, a perpetual love of learning and the meditative powers of gardening

Coaching Bio:

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.

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.

Feeling like you were made for something bigger? Want to make changes but struggle getting started? Is your mind running with possibilities unsure how to get things started? Does happiness and fulfillment seem to be only something you read in quotes lately? If you have answered yes to any of these questions then starting a coaching relationship can catapult your life from reading inspirational quotes to living them!

If you are at a crossroads in life and confused about which way to go I can help you find your path. Are struggling with family issues, unsatisfying relationships with others or yourself, not feeling fulfilled at work or looking into new ideas of spirituality and wellness? Beneath that noise inside you, is there a voice saying “it’s time for change”. Change can be scary and this fear keeps us stuck existing rather than truly living. If you are ready to pull back the curtain and see what gifts you have to offer the world, let’s work together to create the changes you desire and to truly live your happiness!

My name is Tara Stricker, I have 20 years of experience in the Human Services industry, empowering individuals to make changes in their lives. I am no stranger to the complexities and challenges that come along with making sustainable changes. One thing I have noticed through the years is a supportive relationship and a positive, empowered outlook are an essential asset necessary for making change. Working with a wide variety of populations I have helped clients with personal growth. I have worked alongside clients helping them to remove roadblocks that have hindered them from creating positive life, taught skills to become a self-advocate and developed strategies to maintaining the balanced life they desire. I have also taught values, strategies for coping with anger and ways to deal with opposition. I have celebrated their success and regrouped after the failures and through it all I am still always amazed at the strength of the human spirit.

In my personal life I have also faced challenges. When my husband suddenly became ill and passed away, I was at a crossroads. When he passed he was left with one big regret; that he had not risked and followed his dreams. This inspired me to take the path I had always dreamed of and planned on living…one day. Through this loss I learned why wait; today is the best day to start!

I am passionate about people and look forward to supporting you in choosing your path making the changes you desire to create the life you always dreamed of! Today IS your someday!
