I currently have 5 customizable courses:
How to Eliminate Burnout– For leaders and teams who have lost of work/life balance and as a result burning-out, under-performing, or have increased sick-time. The course offers participants an opportunity to learn theory in story format, self-assess, and gain tools and insights into how to move out patterns of cycles of burn-out and increase their connection to work and life.
Leaders for Change– This three module course supports emerging and new leaders with the foundation of effective leadership to ensure values based, community -centered, service.
From Trauma to Transformation 1/2– This session boils down complex trauma cycles every human has into a simple, digestible model for moving out of trauma impacts and responses into a thriving life.
Change 101– This session is an introduction to being with and working through change and decreasing risks along the way.
You Matter- This session supports leaders and teams to realize how powerful they are and with the right self-awareness and action how they can make a work of difference in the lives of others.
Have a topic in mind? With over 18 years creating workshops and sessions, I can curate any experiential, interactive workshop or session needed for your organization.
The basis of HeartBreath is using our breath and heart’s electromagnetic field to deepen our connection to our body, move out of our mind and open our hearts to increase our coherence.
This is a scientific process that is based on neuroscience, positive psychology and values based principles.
The benefits are endless.

Groups size depend on size of room and support.
I have a 1:20 ratio for HeartBreath sessions. For every 20 people, we need one team member to assist. This can be either be internal or I have a number of incredible practitioners I can invite to assist.
This is to ensure everyone feels supports during their experience.
For larger group sizes, I will custom the experience to ensure a gentle yet profound heart-centered experience.
In my practice, I utilize 15 years of certified coaching, leadership development and change management experiences globally, HeartMath, neuroscience, 14 years of practicing yoga and meditation along with my breathwork training under two well-known instructors, Rebecca Kordecki and David Elliott. These customized sessions also bring in energy healing work that I have spent the last 10 years honing and connecting with to increase your experiences.
