My intention with each client is to meet them exactly where they are in their healing journey. The coaching program will be tailor made for the individual client’s intentions, goals and relationship to health. We will build a framework and personalized health practice grounded in the particular root cause of imbalance, and consider ways to track progress in each session. The pace and depth of working together is entirely up to you.
To be alive right now is to experience firsthand the effects of stress on the entire human experience of body, mind, and spirit — it is no secret that 86% of all illness is caused by stress alone. In this full mind-body state, we experience imbalance in our fight and flight hormonal chemicals and our body’s proper digestion. In the Ayurvedic tradition, well-being is determined first and foremost by the condition of our digestive fire (or “agni”), which when aggravated or imbalanced, can lead our bodies down the destructive path of generating toxins (or “amas”). Everything in mind and body literally begins to shut down.
In the years I spent overworking myself in the corporate business world and chasing an ideal that I thought served me, my relationship to stress took a major downward turn, leading to eventual burnout and an inevitable need to reset. Armed with nothing but my own intuition, I decided to embrace this moment as an opportunity to change course and find a new path.
Guided by the tools and practices of my own journey, I arrived here and now to offer a coaching program specially designed for those who wish to do the deep work of creating and practicing a Wholistic lifestyle.
How Do I Work?
My coaching philosophy is grounded in a Wholistic approach, drawing on the diverse knowledge of ancient Ayurveda, Yoga, Reiki, Meditation and other Healing Arts. Having designed my own path forward from a stressful corporate lifestyle, my approach has been shaped by deep intuition and holistic processes. Of the healing arts I work with, Ayurveda and Yoga most strongly influence and inspire my coaching practice.
The emphasis on preventing disease is rooted in finding and maintaining that balance in the mind, body and spirit to make healthy living a joyful, creative and proactively powerful experience.
