Fausta Luchini, M.A., WPCC, is a holistic life coach, a catalyst, and a visionary. She loves to coach people who are ready to build a life that lets them shine. She has been described as a wise elder, bringing the insight and wisdom gathered from a lifetime of working with people to her role of coach.
A native of Kentucky, Fausta earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology in 1993 and spent over 20 years as a therapist. Fifteen years in Community Mental Health, both in urban and rural settings, gave her a wide range of experience with diverse cultures. Offering individual and group therapy to adults, many of whom were survivors of childhood trauma, she learned ways to help her clients work through the lingering impact of that trauma on their lives – and they helped form her understanding of the pathways to healing. She continues to be grateful for those experiences and awed at the strength and resilience of her clients.
This rich experience – from Community Mental Health to private practice to Training Coordinator – has led her work to this space. As a life coach, she is committed to working with the helpers – the social workers, advocates, attorneys, first responders, teachers and parents who engage directly with survivors of trauma. If you wake up at 2 a.m. worrying about your clients, think about your students over the weekend, if you feel like you’re losing yourself in their suffering, Fausta helps you reconnect with yourself and find the tools you need to sustain that connection. She creates a space for you to explore how to develop a life that supports the work you do, how to build a life that lets you shine.
Fausta lives in Savannah, Ga, in a multi-generational household, where she enjoys the warm weather and being close to the ocean. When she’s not coaching, or blogging about it, Fausta enjoys playing with her grandchildren, exploring new restaurants with her daughter, traveling with her life partner, Dennis, and walking on the beach by herself.
Everybody gets stuck. If you feel trapped in work that doesn’t fully engage you or, even worse, prevents you from advancing in your career or enjoying your personal life, you are not alone. Far from it, in fact. Initiating change is one of the hardest things we ever do. But to realize your highest potential and live a meaningful, fulfilling life, it’s also utterly essential.
You want the freedom to be who you are and enjoy your precious time doing what you love. But it’s easy to get trapped by a paycheck – a financial necessity that can make it hard to see the escape route, let alone the road ahead.
If this sounds familiar, it’s time you made a change.
Becoming an influential entrepreneur is about initiating big changes for yourself and your clients. But to achieve the most empowering, sustainable results, both types of change require a unique set of skills and interpersonal tools that elicit the best from you and those you serve. Easy to learn, these skills can be applied to an endless range of personal and professional applications – a ripple effect that improves every aspect of an individual’s life.
That’s where I come in.
As a three-decade veteran in the business of change, my journey began in the world of marketing and sales. Leveraging my business expertise and life experience, I transitioned into the holistic coaching arena after discovering my deepest passion: helping others achieve their best possible life – one of their choosing.
I am a serial entrepreneur and a Master Credentialed Coach (MCC). Having traveled the startup road more than five times myself, I specialize in helping business owners who operate at every level. Working side by side, we effectively organize and manage their enterprise through tools that simplify time-consuming processes and personalize their brand. I also take great pride in serving as the business owner’s BFF, especially when it comes to combating the fear and resistance that inevitably creep in as someone navigates the breakthrough pathway to success.
If you’re a business owner, my expertise can help you attract those who need you the most, convert those leads into clients, and leverage your individual talents (some of which you may not even be aware of!). The result? You’ll be able to make a powerful, quantifiable difference in the lives and businesses of your clients through a system that can be tailored to any individual, niche or process.
Unlike physical goods, there’s an extra layer to marketing intangibles. I am no stranger to selling future results. In fact, it’s one of my superpowers. It’s also a vital skill set when your business includes intangibles such as coaching or other forms of personal transformation.
My business experience and marketing background have enabled me to strategically help hundreds of luminaries, holistic healers, and soul-preneurs exactly like you. Through my consultation and support, these individuals have successfully created and marketed their products, services and programs to millions of people around the globe. You’ll find a few examples in these in my testimonials and case studies on my website.
***What you’ll gain by working with me***
Becoming an entrepreneur is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have, both financially and emotionally. Running your own business can bring you great joy.

If you are looking for a smart, devoted business buddy who offers comprehensive online training programs, private mastermind groups, and one-on-one support, you’re search may be nearing its end. I could be the business strategist and marketing master you’ve been looking for. We’ll have to talk in person to find out if that’s true for you!
Working with me, you’ll learn how to book yourself solid and fill those workshop seats with your ideal clients simply by being your most magnetic self! If you’re up for the long-haul, you’ll also be writing books, building your tribe, and creating online programs, passive income streams, and workshops of your very own.
I can show you how to take your existing skill set or brand and monetize it through every available channel. Care to join me?

Welcome to the pasture, where the grass is greener because we water it. (Unless you live in California and are in the middle of a sever drought. In that case, brown is the new green baby!)
My name is Anna Acuña and I’m the Fulfillment Coach for you—the Ambitious Professional in your 20s/30s seeking work and a life that sets your soul on fire.
I’m passionate about inspiring and supporting you in the pursuit of your passions.
Let me guess, you’re bored out of your mind and wish you were doing something more fulfilling with your life. Am I right? Chances are you’re good at what you do and make a decent living doing it, but find yourself drained, unfulfilled and uninspired. Do you feel like you’re just going through the motions? Do you have all this potential brewing inside you waiting to be tapped (like a delicious craft beer), but either don’t know what to do with it or find yourself hesitant to take action? Perhaps you already know your passion and need help figuring out how to pursue it. Or maybe you have no clue what your passion is and want to discover it. If you’re anything like me, then you have multiple passions and no idea which one you should pick and commit to.
Sound familiar? I know what it’s like to feel lost, confused and paralyzed by options.
I also know how to clear the fog, find clarity, direction and focus around what I want to pursue in my life and take deliberate action.
When I graduated college with a B.S. in Kinesiology and minor in Theatre, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life in terms of a career. All I really cared about or felt fulfilled doing was lifting the spirits of others and encouraging them to pursue the things they were passionate about. There wasn’t exactly a career out there I knew of designed for such an abstract “skill set” though. Besides that, all I knew was I was passionate about many different things and wanted a career that would allow me to do a variety of things. So, despite the very real and looming burden of student loan debt, family expectation, social expectation and the pressure to settle down and find a “real job”, I held off in search of a career that set my soul on fire. A career that not only allowed me to connect with and support others in the pursuit of their passions, but also provided the creative fulfillment, sense of purpose and freedom I desired, especially in terms of my time and money.
I’ve never been one to do things for money. Instead of choosing a job to just pay the bills, I pursued my passions to see which one would be a fulfilling career option. I trusted my instincts, let my passions guide me and tapped into the abundance of potential I possessed. I pursued and enriching collection of work experiences and took advantage of opportunities I never thought possible before.
Some of those opportunities included working in the entertainment industry, teaching and education, becoming a certified Yoga Instructor, learning web design and working for an e-commerce scuba company.
In the pursuit of my passions, I discovered what matters most to me and started crafting an intentional vision of my life. Along the way, I came across Life Coaching and began to contemplate the idea of starting my own business as an entrepreneur. To be completely honest, the idea of starting my own business scared the shit out of me and the thought of turning into a “salesy, bottom-line crazed douchebag” was a huge turn off—you know what I’m talking about. So, I spent another 3 years mulling the idea over while working for other people hoping to find my dream job. Eventually, it became undoubtedly clear that the life I sought was one of my own making and on my own terms.
Pursuing my passions led me directly to the work I had been looking for all along; life as a Wild & Free entrepreneur!
So let me ask you…what are you passionate about? Would you like to pursue it?
Pursuing your passions is the key to creating a life that sets your soul on fire. When you do the things you love, work becomes a fulfilling, energizing and worthwhile use of your time that allows you to create, innovate, make a profound difference in the world, and live your life to the fullest. It boosts your health and all aspects of your being—mind, body, and spirit.
If your instincts tell you to pursue your passions, then trust your gut and tap into your boundless potential. As your coach, I will guide you through the process of discovering and pursuing your passions, so you can create a life that sets your soul on fire.
Follow me and soon you will be Wild & Free!

How I got here,
…and Why I’m a Life Coach
As a transgender woman, I know the risks of being true to one’s self at the deepest level. I speak from experience when I say that with a bit of courage, the right kind of support, and yes, some risk, successful change always leads to a rich, fulfilling life.
The idea of transition or “coming out” isn’t limited to sexuality or gender. Life eventually forces all of us to choose between becoming real and showing up in our lives, or staying safely—if miserably—hidden.
I spent a large portion of my life hidden behind any facade I could spin to keep my fears and confusion packed up so tight no one could possibly see me. From that space, that seemed so safe, I ran a business, had relationships and periodically showed up at events in my life that I thought made a difference.
Breaking down those walls and un-raveling the beliefs that kept me frozen in fear and self loathing was not a cake walk. In retrospect, doing the work to get though the roughs patches wasn’t all that hard and in the end the rewards have been amazing! Things like increased self-awareness, self-confidence, connecting with other people and a willingness to be vulnerable.
Professionally, and prior to becoming a certified Whole Person Life Coach, I was an expert in solving puzzles;
I owned several successful businesses. I’ve been on the cutting edge of designing and manufacturing new equipment for start-up industries. I designed and patented equipment and had the pleasure of watching most of it work well and sell.
Yes, there were times I drove myself crazy trying to get to the bottom of a failed idea, all the while saying to myself “I can do this myself” or “I just can’t afford help.” What I didn’t realize at the time was how my assumptions got in the way of what I could really accomplish. So, I’ve been there. Self doubt, un-helpful beliefs and general stubbornness!
Having let go of past self-imposed restraints (indoctrinated beliefs) I decided to follow my hearts desire and help others to stretch towards believing in themselves, achieving the things they want, and become the best shiny being they can possible be.
So lets make this easy! I offer an awesome support system that takes in all the areas of your life. I’m here to help you gather your courage, align your thoughts and ideas with your goals and actions, then support you in Making it Happen!

Life Coach for Widows!
I am a native to Oregon. I grew up near The Gorge and moved to Salem in 2011. I have two amazing adult children, of my own, four more amazing children, from a blended family life, and four grandchildren. All my “babies” mean the world to me! And though there is some mileage between some of us, we all make a point to be active in each other’s lives.
My life partner, Dan, and I, love cooking and eating delicious healthy whole foods. We also really enjoy the Virgin Islands, anything tropical, the great outdoors, and trying new restaurants. We live on 40 country acres, and absolutely love the freedom of country lifestyle! We have two dogs, a cat, and some chickens. #farmlife. =) The dogs and I enjoy daily walks on the property, and I also have a passion for yoga, meditation, and anything “good for the soul.” Never in my lifetime would I have ever believed that I could find my way back to the good life, and one that is even better…..
So lets back up a little. In 2010 I was married. My husband and I had a lovely home, we both had good corporate jobs, we had a blended family, and just had our first grandchild. Life was good, and we had our whole life in order and our future planned out. We were planning what most people plan, to retire, maybe travel a little, and get old together. Everything was on target for the dream life I had always wanted, until suddenly my husband was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and life, as we knew it, came to a hard stop. Over several months, as he was going through treatments, surgeries, etc, I was making sure all the financials and home business was taken care of, but I often asked myself, “when this is said and done, am I going to be ok?” I was so scared of my unseen future. Months later my husband passed away and I found myself looking at the rest of my life. Who was I going to be now? What defined me now? I had my entire life ahead of me, and all my original plans had died when my husband did. I had no idea where I was headed!
During this experience, and over the next few years, I discovered an incredible strength inside me. I also learned I was completely out of control, and had to learn to quiet my mind sit back, lean in, and just trust. I knew everything had happened for a reason, though I still didn’t quite know what that reason was. And somehow, through it all, everything also worked out in absolute perfect timing. I learned to meditate, and got deep into yoga, and spent a lot of quiet time with God. I learned to slow down and pay attention to my spirit and my needs.
Fast forward to 2018. I moved to Salem in 2011. I also started a new job and found a cute little house for me and the pups. But, with all these new beginnings, I also said good bye to my hometown, my house, and my long standing career. After moving to Salem, I started volunteering, then soon became a full time employee, of a local hospice agency. Hospice was a great place for me to receive grief support and to share my story, and experience, with other families, going through similar struggles I had already gone through. I would often hear spouses, and adult children, asking, “when they are gone, am I going to be ok?” It was comforting being able to tell them they would be ok, and though the pain of the loss doesn’t ever go away, life keeps going and can certainly be great again.
My life experience, and my time at hospice, is what brought me to the coaching world. I realized, through my time at the hospice agency, that I was ready to focus on life and living, rather than grief, and death, and dying. I discovered a passion for helping women move forward with “the rest of their life” after the loss of a spouse.
One thing I’ve learned for sure, is 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. So, 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!!
