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.

Are you struggling to carve out time to spend together?

Is communication difficult?

Are you and your partner on different pages when it comes to finances or children?

Relationships, no matter how strong, have their share of challenges.  And that’s not a bad thing.  Often times we just need some new tools and techniques to navigate through them.

Inside our workshops and private coaching sessions you’ll find:

New listening and communication skills will help initiate more constructive conversations.
Learning each others values around money and finances will help you discover why you make your financial decisions

We have been married 28 years saying “I do” at 19 and having twin boys at 21.  There were times that we worked opposite shifts to support our family, often only seeing each other in passing. Communication was almost non-existent.

We faced major moves, leaving family and friends to take a job.  The job wasn't quite as advertised causing Bob serious health issues and putting major strain on our finances.

By this time our relationship was in shambles.  A short separation forced us to take a hard look at our marriage.   We agreed our relationship was important to us so we tried again.

Things have not been perfect.

Bob worked 2 hours away from home for over a year.  It meant Holly was left to parent alone the majority of the time.

Holly lost her job just a few months after being offered a promotion.  We ended up losing our home because of it.

We have struggled, fought, and thought it was all over.  We pushed through the obstacles and have come out the other side stronger.

We want to help you!  Offering you the tools you need and kind of support that let¹s you figure things out for yourself.   We believe in the possibility of real & lasting love for anyone who strives for it.  Let’s work together to help you create your Miracle Marriage.

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
*change careers
*start or finish a creative project
*go back to school
*get more clients
*make more time for the people and pursuits you love

Let's connect! Send me a message below or go to my website ( https://www.racheldrummond.com/contact-me/ ) to book a free 30-minute session. 

A sincere thank you for your interest.

Coaching Bio:

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:

"Do Yoga."

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.

The Epiphany

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.

Coaching Bio:

I coach in three areas - right partner, right livelihood, and Parent as Life Coach (coaching you to coach your kid(s) to approach life with a resilient and creative-problem-solving mindset).

Clarity of intention, creativity, courage, and resilience are all learnable skills that put your dream within reach.

Our coaching time will be strength-based, future-focused, and collaborative. You will explore creative processes that uncover the next step on your journey, experience inner shifts that inspire heart-centered action, eliminate blocks to taking action, and put accountability in place to get results.

My Credentials:

I am a CPC, Certified Professional Coach, trained in Whole Person Life Coaching through Baraka Institute – Coach Training World in 2015. At the heart of whole person coaching is respect for the client, and trust that he or she is whole, complete and resourceful.

My M.A. in Spiritual Psychology is a natural fit with whole-person coaching. My B.S. in Computer Science and my years designing and building computer systems trained me to be solution-focused and results-oriented. My work in Addiction Counseling strengthened my belief that the start of your life does not define the rest of your life. No matter what you’ve done or what you’ve been through, a future with purpose and meaning is yours to create.

I have decades of experience working with people who are undergoing major life changes - workers undergoing radical innovation in their daily work processes, families coping with a terminally ill family member, men preparing to leave prison, families in the adoption process, professionals undergoing corporate acquisition and downsizing. Being a partner on your journey, walking side-by-side as your life transforms, is a great privilege.

More About Me:

I have compassion and understanding for people facing obstacles in achieving their dreams. I’ve learned to turn the challenges on my journey to my advantage, and to use every experience as an opportunity to learn, grow, and evolve.

I find joy & growth, purpose & meaning through my coaching, marriage, parenting, creative pursuits, friends & family, and spiritual practice. I live a life I love while being true to who I am. I hold the vision for you to create that in your life as well.

I offer a free call to anyone who would like to contact me and reserve a time. We can have a conversation and see if we are a fit to work together.

Michelle Hertrich, Certified Professional Coach
Relationship Coach and Consultant

I have a bachelor’s degree in family and child development and 32 years experience in social services, working for the past 23 years with survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence and sexual assault.

I do Coaching, Counseling, and Consultation
Counseling deals with current emotions brought on by past issues, often traumatic experiences. One definition of trauma is anything that is less than nurturing. Many people are unaware they’ve experienced trauma and that it is getting in the way of self-love and happy relationships.
During consultation I’m teaching clients skills and information to assist with increasing self-confidence, positive emotions, and improved relationships. For the past 14 years I’ve taught clients how to love themselves, decrease shame, have healthier relationships, and thrive after trauma.
Coaching involves removing visible and invisible roadblocks to something we desire that we don’t yet have. If we want something… more joy, to be self-employed, a new relationship…but we don’t have it yet, something is getting in our way. This is often our limiting beliefs or self-sabotage. Uncovering these beliefs or habits helps clients free the way to achieve their greatest desires.
Relationships begin with ourselves. We may think a relationship will finally help us gain confidence or feel happy. If you find yourself choosing partners that you think are different, only to find you’ve made a similar choice to the last one that didn’t work out, you may some have work to do. It is not until we truly fall in love with ourselves that we can finally make choices that validate that.
If you feel confused in your current relationship as to why it feels like an emotional roller coaster or why you or your partner just can’t get it right, you may have some work to do. The only person you can change is yourself and over the years I’ve taught hundreds of clients to make the changes that significantly improved their relationships.
If this sounds like something you may be looking for, give a call to schedule a free 30-minute consultation. If we’re a good fit, it’ll be our first success together! If we’re not a good fit, I know many amazing therapists and coaches I can refer you to.

Coaching Bio:

I am a relationship and dating coach and focus on helping clients create fulfilling, satisfying and long lasting relationships through methods of intentional love. I work with clients to deepen their emotional and physical connections through mindfulness, effective communication tools and value based goal setting.

I have been on a life long journey to help people work through struggles and live their best lives. I have a B.A. in Psychology and an M.A. in Clinical Psychology. It was my work at the community mental health center, where I realized how important creating a personal connection is to helping clients set and achieve their goals. I am also a certified yoga instructor which has given me a deep understanding of how intention and mindfulness plays into both our everyday behavior and long term goals. I decided to tie all of my knowledge and experience together with whole person coaching and received my WPCC in 2018. As someone who has been in a 28 year relationship, I realized my true passion lies with helping couples connect and love deeply.

Even the healthiest relationships can suffer from a lack of connection and lose their momentum. Most couples become physically and emotionally disconnected from each other not out of malice, but out of mindlessness. When relationships go on auto-pilot, needs become neglected, resentment builds and connection deteriorates.

This problem does not necessarily stem from a lack of love, but rather a lack of gratitude, excitement, passion and intention. My positive focused and solution oriented coaching techniques are specifically designed to improve your communication skills and day to day interactions, deepen your emotional connection and address issues surrounding physical intimacy.

Relationships, like health and fitness, take effort to maintain. You wouldn't go to the gym for a month and assume your fitness journey was complete. In order to reap the benefits of a healthy relationship, you must be willing to put in the work.

I look forward to helping couples reclaim their happiness and deep connections so that they can enjoy the meaningful and satisfying relationships they desire and deserve.

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!

Feeling lost or off track can put you in a place where you're frustrated and confused. I've been there. It took one lay-off, two breakups and three health issues to lead me to one of my life's passions, coaching! As a former social worker, I regularly used coaching techniques with my clients without even knowing. Frequently helping friends and acquaintances through life's trials only helped strengthen my problem-solving capabilities. Because I've dealt with a lot, I've learned to guide myself and others through many obstacles. I did it for them. I can do it for you. Let me be your personal guide to new outlooks.

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.

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.

Sound familiar?

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.

Coaching Bio:

Hi! I’m Mindy.

My work as a life coach centers on developing healthy relationships between adults and the children they care for.

I believe the most important gift we can give the children we care for is meaningful and positive connection.

As a parent and home educator of 21 years, I’ve learned how to be adaptable, creative, and persistent while parenting and educating 5 kids.

I've become an experiential expert in home education, social-emotional learning, early childhood education, human growth and development, and strategic planning.

***

I work with anyone who cares for children: school administrators, teachers, parents, and caregivers.

Your role as a parent, educator, or caregiver has probably changed during COVID-19. You may feel lost, underresourced, overworked, and worried about the children in your care. Many of you are grappling with how to transition and adapt from public education to home education.

I want to help you show up for the children you care for in a sustainable, purposeful, and meaningful way.

In order to do this, we as adults must connect with our OWN needs, first.

I’ll help you…
~ assess your needs and the needs of the children in your care
~ clarify what’s really possible and eliminate the long list of “shoulds”
~ strategize sustainable new rhythms and systems
~ set realistic expectations and goals
~ uncover your own, untapped inner resources

***

I create a space that is safe for you to let yourself be seen and heard, where who you are and your goals and challenges can be explored and reflected back to you gently and succinctly.

I would love to partner with you on your journey!

Coaching Bio:

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.
