My goal as your coach is to help you get to know yourself on levels far beyond what you do and the version you share with the world. I care most about what is deep within you. You at your core. Call it soul or higher Self. This is the one who knows what impact you want to make and is ready to take action. 


I'm Nicole!


Our work will help you identify this inner compass so you can live an aligned life, but first, we will have to understand the other layers built over time to protect or hide your essence. Using transpersonal techniques, internal family systems, and eventually, psychedelics, I will help you learn tools that allow you to understand and heal the parts of you that might be holding you back and making you play small. We are often our worst enemy; we have the ability and skills to go after our dreams but hold ourselves back for lack of trust.

I will help you work past this to show up with trust instead of fear.  

Another huge component of our work is expanding your awareness and strengthening your ability to connect to yourself and the world around you. We live in a society of numbing. We value the brain, rationalizing and getting through it, over the heart, feeling, and finding presence. It is no wonder that so many of us have lost our ability to tap into our most valuable human resource - our intuition. 


Connecting to emotions, thoughts, and body sensations helps you see the complete picture of yourself and how you show up in the world.  It also allows you to tap into a deeper level of growth potential


What does it feel like when you speak your truth? Can you sense your triggered response? How do you know when you are grounded and centered? When are you at home within yourself? 


These are just a few questions we will work through as you develop an embodied sense of yourself. Once you make this connection, we can use it as a compass for your life.


Our visions and dreams come easily from a place of trust and deep connection. But first, we have to be willing to do the work and look beyond the ego and into our depths.
