Whole Life Mindfulness and Somatic Coach

My Coaching Approach

Employing traditional Buddhist mindfulness and self-compassion practices, as well as evidence-based life coaching techniques, we will collaborate  to identify, clarify, and meet your goals.

As a mindfulness coach, my calling is to partner with you in... 

  • Integrating your unique value system into the important areas of your life

  • Discovering your own abundant wellspring of inner resources

  • Living with the free will that comes of intention: aligning your choices with your truth

  • Engaging life with purpose and creating meaning and a sense of fulfillment in the journey

  • Developing new life-enhancing habits of mind and body


I partner with people who feel stuck, stressed, hooked or overwhelmed. I partner with people facing change and exploring possibility. I also serve people experiencing grief, loss, and end of life challenges. There is possibility for meaning in every moment, at every phase of life.

"Tell me, what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

Mary Oliver


Let's meet for 30 minutes to explore your coaching goals and your vision for your life. We can meet in person, if you are in the Lewiston-Auburn, Maine area, or online, via Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype.

Because I am working to meet my goal of ICF certification, I am offering deeply discounted intern rates for coaching until I meet my required coaching hours. After your initial free session, I hope you will take advantage of my $15 per half hour rates, and let's help each other meet our goals!
