If you are like me…
You have a calling to be of higher service to the world, to help, to heal, to assist those in need, to make the world a better place in your unique way.
You’re on a passionate pursuit to feel more connected and in tune with yourself, your purpose, your wellness, and your work.
You have felt and are feeling a strong “nudge” to level up.
You are ready for transition out of what isn’t working and into what is waiting and possible.
You might also be feeling burn-out, overwhelmed, and anxious “behind the scenes.”
I believe the key to how we navigate wellness in life is based on how aware, intentional, and integral we are. When we aren’t fully aware of what’s going on, our stories of why, and make changes that aren’t in line with our core values, living in old stories, life becomes harder, and our wellness suffers. The challenges we experience override the triumphs, and the shifts we are hoping for come and go too fast, or don’t come to fruition at all. We spend more time on temporary fixes rather than getting to great results. We have put clients first, practitioner second.
You’ve arrived here because you are in the midst of, or about to embark on, an evolutionary change. You’re hoping to find the right solution and guide to help shape your next steps with more ease, less risk, and reliable results. Does that sound about right?
You’re probably wondering, “Can she guide me through this?”
So let me tell you this: “Yes, I can. You have come to the right place.”
Like many of you, I have a wide range of life experiences. Some have landed me flat on my ass, feeling broke (and literally broke), indifferent about life, and unsure of what’s ahead. Others have lifted me, taken me on some WILD adventures, given me some of the most incredible gifts, and surrounded me with things that were beyond what I ever imagined. All have taken me on an incredible journey that has landed me here.
There is nothing that I have not seen, heard, or experienced that would pull me away from saying, I can assist you.
I have learned, earned, and created an array of tools and practices that have supported a wide variety of clients, from COOs to community leaders, to incarcerated and entrenched street youths, to first-time mothers grounding themselves in their new chapter of life. I have ran, walked, and sat along some of the most dynamic people.
I customize my approach to each person/ business I work with based on needs. I always stand by my core values of ensuring that I inspire positive change, create a sense of community, and connect individuals to a more fulfilling contribution in this life. So far, it’s been pretty incredible.
The bonus of working with me is three-fold:
First, I’m real. Who you see is who you get. I will show up, ready to connect and assist your journey.
Second, I’m thorough in my training. No weekend warrior courses can give someone what I have. I hold a master’s degree in Leadership from a top university, am a certified ICF coach trained under two disciplines, and have over 12 years of coaching experience with clients all over the world. I am Prosci (change management) certified and have several other courses under my belt. I’ve recently also added two modalities of holotropic-style breathwork to deepen my client’s experiences.
Thirdly, I’ve lived a full life: I’ve traveled extensively, having worked in 15 countries. I started a charity and co-founded another. Co-produced a documentary and have been a two time TEDx speaker. Worked on multi-million dollar projects, rescued dogs, become a mother, navigated some hard life experiences (some with more grace than others), and above all have created a beautiful life full of incredible adventures that weave magic into my work life.
My approach is unique and very holistic.
Science is the foundation of my learning, nature is the method of creating and carrying out practices, and spirit is what drives it all. Any successful change needs all three of these to succeed and should build awareness, focus on intentional action, and work to shift all parts of the experience to create a thriving state of being.
The Power of the Three
I offer holistic services to ensure sustainable change. The integration of coaching, body therapy breathwork and education has proven time and time again to increase client results and satisfaction and reduce time working on challenges.
95% of my clients achieve their desired outcomes in 90 days!
