Coaching, counseling, and energy healing sessions are for you if…
You are struggling with feelings, experiences, and patterns (whether it is shame, depression, low self-esteem, self-sabotage, relationship challenges, unresolved anger, grief, or trauma, anxiety, isolation, a lack of purpose, fatigue, an unhealthy relationship with food or your body, a harsh inner critic, feeling bored with life, chronic stress and overwhelm, etc.) and you want to be free to experience a deeply satisfying, meaningful, joyful, whole life you love.
(You CAN be free, and we will be with you every step of your beautiful and exciting journey.)
You know there is more to life (yes, there is!) but don’t know how to get from where you are to where you want to be.
(We’ve been enthusiastically studying psychology, diverse healing modalities, and human potential for decades and love sharing all the game-changing tips, insights, and hacks we’ve learned to help you overcome your barriers, resistance, fears, limiting beliefs, and outdated patterns — so you can finally get real and lasting fulfillment and results.)
You’ve had painful experiences you’ve never really faced, embraced, and fully healed.
(They are holding you back from living your best life, they won’t just go away on their own, and it is never too late to heal and be free…to shine.)
You’ve tried making changes on your own, and they aren’t happening quickly enough or at all.
(We’ll make the healing easy, quick, lasting, and fun.)
You want to feel more joy, energy, ease, inspiration, and connected to yourself and others.
(You wholeheartedly will.)
You want to reconnect to your soul and develop a spiritual path and practices that deeply resonate and consistently support you in everyday life.
(We are passionate about helping people cultivate uniquely meaningful lives of purpose and meaning. If you can’t quite relate to the religion in which you were raised and yet long to feel more spiritually connected, rest assured, you can still live a miraculous and soulful life, and we will help show you how.)
You are experiencing a physical challenge or concern and are looking to accelerate your body’s innate healing abilities, experience pain relief, clear toxins, uncover and clear the emotional root, and/or journey home to your body’s natural state of harmony and balance.
(Your mental and emotional health and happiness are intimately connected to your physical health, and we are here to help you address it from every side.)
And/or you are hungry to thrive in all areas of your life and ready to experience true inner joy.
(YES! This investment is priceless and one you’ll never regret.)
In other words, if you’d love to turn…
your heartache into happiness
your pain into purpose
your messes into miracles
your chaos into calm
your fears into freedom
your mundane into magic
your exhaustion into energy
your breakdowns into breakthroughs
your losses into love
your journey into JOY!
…and you’d like some loving, enthusiastic,
personalized, and highly experienced support,
We are here for you fully and would be honored to help.
What it Looks Like
Combining science with intuition, extensive study with years of personal experience, and transformative coaching and counseling with energy healing and somatic psychology techniques, we will help you experience, integrate, and embody your joyful transformation at the deepest level possible, as quickly as possible.
We are in awe of the human capacity for healing, growth, and transformation and have devoted decades to studying everything we can get our hands on when it comes to creating the most effective, ease-filled, and lasting positive changes. We are incredibly fortunate to have collected and synthesized a vast body of knowledge.
Here are just a few of the many modalities we love and offer, and we will create a custom combination that uniquely resonates with you and matches your needs and goals.
You don’t need to know ahead of time which of these you want to include in your sessions, and we often combine them. Every time we meet, we will go over your goals for the session and decide together what will best get you the results you want. We always welcome and honor your preferences and wishes for how we spend our time together.
Transformative Life Coaching and Counseling
Through a combination of coaching and counseling, we are able to work with both the WHY and the HOW. The why allows you to understand yourself, to recognize what has and hasn’t worked in your life and why, to feel intimately connected to your personal life story, and to experience tremendous personal growth, awareness, and healing. The how allows you map out and achieve the vision for where you would love to be in your life, what you want to feel and experience more of, and the goals you want to accomplish (both inner and outer).
Neuroscience of Happiness and Positive Psychology
Through the science of optimal human functioning, you will understand how your brain actually works and how you can start using it to get wired for greater peace and happiness and to support you like never before.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
EFT is a form of psychological acupressure that uses a gentle tapping technique to clear the emotional roots of a myriad of challenges. EFT belongs to the vastly growing field of Energy Psychology and often works when nothing else has. It can dramatically relieve emotional disturbances along with many physical symptoms. It often works within minutes, and its positive results are usually long lasting, if not permanent. EFT is considered by many therapists and coaches as the most effective, efficient, quick, gentle, lasting, and seemingly miraculous technique they’ve ever seen.
Our current reality is largely influenced by old imprints in our subconscious. If our imprints are out of date, so is everything we think, feel, and see. This leads to inner conflict and self-sabotage. This powerful technique allows us to create new imprints that better match who you are now and who you want to be, not simply the messages you’ve heard in the past or what you’ve experienced before.
Early Childhood Regression
This will help you reclaim parts of yourself, return to wholeness, upgrade your mindset (so you aren’t running on old, limiting, outdated beliefs about yourself), and feel a tremendous sense of relief.
Reiki is a simple, effective, non-invasive, and powerful form of energy healing. Reiki involves a practitioner placing his or her hands directly above or lightly on the body (clients remain fully clothed), typically for 1-5 minutes in each position. Reiki accelerates the body’s innate healing abilities, strengthens the immune system, relieves pain, creates balance, clears toxins, enhances personal awareness, relaxes, promotes creativity, opens the heart, treats both symptoms and causes of illness, releases blocked and suppressed feelings, aids spiritual practice, and much more. Reiki is used in prestigious hospitals throughout the world and compliments all other forms of healing. You don’t need to be experiencing a challenge to greatly benefit from Reiki. Some clients schedule sessions simply for relaxation, spiritual rejuvenation, balancing, greater peace, heart opening, mental calm, and more. Plus, Reiki feels blissfully wonderful and is like plugging into the infinite battery charger of the Universe. We can easily incorporate Reiki into the last 10-15 minutes of your in-person session whenever desired, which many clients enjoy.
Most of us humans know what we should be doing differently to get different results, and yet we still don’t do it. Why? The answer is usually in the subconscious. Hypnosis, as well as the other techniques we offer, allows us to effectively train your subconscious towards positive and helpful thoughts you want.
Somatic Psychology and Mindfulness
While some challenges we can think our way out of, there is much more to the story, and our thoughts alone don’t often create the shift we really need. Instead, our bodies hold immense knowledge and wisdom. You will experience great insights and breakthroughs from these techniques and will learn to become present to yourself in a way that is loving, compassionate, and full of inner guidance.
EMDR has become wildly popular in recent years because the results are undeniable for helping to heal trauma and transform anxiety. Using bilateral brain stimulation in a very gentle way, you will be able to effectively process stress and difficult memories and return your nervous system to a state of calm, peace, clarity, and ease.
Specifically interested in yoga nidra? Visit this page here to learn lots more about this amazing practice.
Together, using a custom combination of some of the techniques above, we will help you uncover and transform everything holding you back (those things you are aware of and those you aren’t). We will literally rewire old thinking and behavior patterns standing in the way of your inner peace and happiness into ones that empower and inspire you. We will explore every aspect you’d like to improve and grow (health, relationships, self-love, career, spirituality, etc.) and wholeheartedly support you every step of the way in achieving your goals.
Rest assured, you don’t need to know ahead of time which techniques you would like to incorporate. Simply let us know the growth, healing, and breakthroughs you would like to experience, and we will help guide every session.
Prepare to unleash a wellspring of positive energy into every corner of your life!
Private sessions are available anywhere in the world.

Yoga Nidra Facilitator
When we first brought Rhonda onto our team, we gave her the unofficial title of Love Angel. Why? Because that’s just who she is. Everyone who interacts with her is touched by her loving kindness and feels cared for and seen.
A true healer and artist at heart, Rhonda has served others in many ways throughout her life. She has degrees in both Psychology and Nursing and has been honored to support people through some of life’s most challenging moments.
After her own deeply transformative experience with Yoga Nidra, Rhonda knew that part of her life’s purpose was sharing this practice with others. She received Advanced Certification in the Integrative Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra. Nothing brings her greater joy than sharing this practice with her clients and witnessing the profound transformation it so often brings.
Yoga Nidra is a powerful sleep-based meditation technique, done in a comfortable position, usually lying down. It guides a person to deep levels of relaxation, peace, and stillness. In this relaxed state, between wakefulness and sleep, the nervous system can come into balance and long held habits, limiting beliefs, and harmful patterns can be released effortlessly, bringing healing to the body, mind, and spirit.
Yoga Nidra can be done in the office or from the comfort of your own home (or bed!) over Zoom.

Here’s the thing: your past challenges can either hold you back or offer tremendous opportunities to grow and benefit you for the rest of your life. We will make sure it’s the latter.
We will help you identify and release what holds you back from achieving your transformational goals — whether it is transforming anxiety and fear, building confidence and self esteem, healing from the inner critic and self-sabotage, deepening your intimate relationship, creating financial abundance, following your heart’s calling, releasing physical weight, getting started on a new career, or simply cultivating a sense of genuine everyday joy — we’ve got you covered, and private sessions can truly make all the difference.
Most people settle. They adapt to their issues. They quiet the nagging, persistent voice that longs for more. But not you.

That’s the voice to listen to, and you don’t have to do it alone. We’re right by your side.
