integrative life coaching

 

Imagine what life would be like if you were so sure of who you were, took the steps you needed to be whole and the bravery to live out of that unique design.

 
This transcends the typical model of life coaching

what you can expect

Coaching will change and impact the relationship to the self and your way of being in the world. 

You will begin visualizing that your goals are possible and then identify & creative clear achievable steps toward that. 

This space allows you to encounter significant breakthroughs in places you assumed would never change; in the physical body, intellectual mind, guiding emotions and spiritual realm. 

Empowering you to uncover and confront limiting beliefs that have been holding you back from realizing your true self, you are given innovative tools and techniques to process and release these ideas. You will move through internal resistance, shame and old programming to value beauty, truth and integrity, releasing un-forgiveness, judgment, expectations and perfectionism so you can walk in love.

You will learn how to set boundaries, expectations, and strong communication in relationships allowing you to live from a place of peace, overflow, and trusting yourself. This means more authenticity instead of obligation.

By integrating numerous healing modalities, techniques, mind-body tools, and action plans we can achieve permanent behavior change. You will be offered practical tools in a sacred space, the ideal setting for the process of self-discovery, unraveling and integration.

With grace and power you will become a generous contributor of patience, creativity, conviction, lending to cultural and human thriving.

my style

My coaching style is a total compilation of my years of experience as a working artist, arts educator, creative director and years building an integrative wellness studio in San Diego, CA.

My practice includes knowledge I've gained in my professional education as a coach as well as the skills, tools, and personal/professional growth I've invested in the last 10+ years of intentionally being on my own healing journey. I invest in my own coach, spiritual director, incredible holistic practitioners and continue to study diverse experts.

Overflowing with every tool I have available I will generously share everything I have learned with you. At the same time I will challenge you to trust that you have everything you need. I will teach you trust your gut, your path, your unique voice.

Holistic Integration

The wisdom of the seasons has the capacity to balance us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. By learning to connect these different systems at play we bring whole person healing and growth.

It felt like my wellness being taken care of by a spiritual artist.

the philosophy

You are all already whole. You do not need to be fixed. You are both healed and being healed.

Healing is a journey. It takes time and trust and a lot of play!

Healed people, help heal people.

Your outer experience is a reflection of your inner world. External change becomes long-lasting when it is anchored by an inner shift and transformation.

You are resilient. Your body has the capacity to heal.

Your breath is always available to bring you back to the present moment.

Cultivating a contemplative/ stillness practice is essential and cultural disruptive.

Learning to trust your own gut is more important than any dietary recommendation, philosophy, or nutrition expert’s advice.

Nourishing relationships, movement, creativity, play, spirituality, fulfilling work, environment, nature, expression, connection, etc. all contribute to our overall health and well-being.

This means, when you invest in coaching you will BENEFIT by creating

Freedom - Empowering you to uncover and confront limiting beliefs that have been holding you back from realizing your true self, you are given innovative tools and techniques to process and release these ideas.  

Identity - You will both visualize and have a somatic experience with your true self and from that place of deep knowing, identify creative clear achievable steps toward your unique goals, dreams and inheritance.

Cadence - By identifying energizers and drainers you move into a place of flow, of balance, of restoring natural rhythms; grounding the nervous system and boosting immunity.

Construct - Compelled by your true identity, walking in freedom, in balance, and in connection you will build a new way of being - one more expansive & generous marked by a life of beauty and wisdom.

Contemplation - By actively noticing your whole-self and the world around you and seeking daily stillness you pass beyond mental images and concepts to a direct experience of the divine. In this we are sustaining spiritual awareness & literacy.

I felt a true wall up to my spirit and I didn’t even truly realize it until the visual mediation. I needed to see myself opening up to spirit inside me. I needed to embrace my journey and present self.

Receiving the prints first was perfect. Getting to touch them and hold them in my hands was incredibly moving. It forced me to sit with them in a different way! It breaks away from the digital world and instantaneous world we’re in.

It felt like my wellness being taken care of by a spiritual artist.
