Creating Wellness from Within

Embark on a deep adventure



What does wellness look like for you? Does it mean:

  • participating in the activities you enjoy
  • remaining vibrant and social into late life
  • maintaining close friendships

Learning how to reframe your goals as positive and personally meaningful can help motivate you to take care of your health with a more optimistic state of mind.  Feeling empowered over your wellness fosters a new kind of energy, bubbling up from deep within.


In these Coaching sessions, I will work with you one-on-one to help you create and launch your game-plan for a thriving life, where you participate in the activities that bring you happiness, that foster creativity or charity or spirituality... whatever lights you up!  Your Wellness Vision shows you meeting each day with purpose, commitment and joy.

Explore your values, strengths and talents

and create a Wellness Vision for a vibrant life
