 The Heart Cycle Mentoring Program

Right now, during these turbulent times, the universe is not just teaching us a hugely valuable lesson in survival, it is also offering us an opportunity to rethink and reset the ways we connect to ourselves, to each other and to the beautiful planet we live on.

The 3-month Heart Cycle Mentoring Program is primarily designed for people looking for relief from anxiety and depression. The curriculum is based on a coaching framework that connects you with who you are in your essence  while illuminating how certain key events in your lives have shaped your identity, what role the ego plays and how to free yourself from the many stumbling blocks caused by a stressful life style, fear and self-doubt. 

The program includes 6 spiritual guidance modules, a beautiful, digital work-book (140 pages), worksheets, exercises, guided meditations, and 10 (ten) 60-minute one-on-one coaching calls with me scheduled weekly or every other week.

Individual Coaching Sessions

I offer individual coaching sessions via phone to people who like to enlist my support on an as-needed basis, sometimes in regular intervals or in clusters during particularly trying times.  

Receiving one-on-one coaching support will help you cope with the many curveballs life may throw you, free you from negative mental habits and keep your personal growth on track no matter where your journey may lead you.

A typical life coaching session lasts 60 minutes, but sometimes quicker 30-minute check-in phone appointments can be helpful as well. ​Schedule your sessions and talk from home, work or wherever you may be while traveling for business or pleasure.

My coaching approach is designed to help you create a more peaceful yet empowered state of being in areas of your life such as self-care, boundaries, purpose, creativity, professional and personal relationships, leadership, transitions, etc. I will provide you with hands-on exercises, tools and techniques to tackle daily challenges as well as spiritual guidance toward a more awakened state of being.

Before we begin you will be sent a Client Intake form that will serve as a baseline agreement for our upcoming coaching sessions.

Enlisting a life coach is a modality used by many high-functioning, successful individuals who know that their ongoing personal growth not only greatly enhances their quality of life but also contributes to a more balanced, joyful connection with those around them.
Equine-assisted Coaching Events for Individuals and Groups

Private, Equine-assisted 1-on-1 Coaching Experience

The Private, Equine-assisted 1-on-1 Coaching Experience starts with a 60 minute coaching call (via phone) that is typically scheduled a few days prior to the 60-90 minute private, equine-assisted, in-person coaching session. During this call we will talk about possible questions, hopes and challenges you would like to explore during your equine-assisted coaching experience.

The equine-assisted coaching session, set up at a private horse facility in the Santa Ynez Valley (unless specified otherwise), will be based on the specific question, situation, intention or theme we will have talked about in our initial coaching call. In the presence of a wise, beautiful horse and my humble self, you will be invited to create a powerful key-experience for yourself that will lead you to a deeper understanding of your own true nature and help you to better cope with the particular challenges you're encountering in your life. The interactive part with the horse will take place on the ground in the safe setting of a round pen (no riding).
Would you like to chat? Please email me to set up a free 30-minute phone consultation to find out how I may support you on your journey and to see if we are a good fit for one another.

Once the horse session has concluded, a few days later, you will be offered a 60 minute follow-up coaching call (via phone) to help you process the findings of your equine-assisted experience.

The Private, Equine-assisted 1-on-1 Coaching Experience includes:
• One 60 minute coaching call (via phone)
• One 60-90 minute equine-assisted coaching session        (typically with a horse in a round-pen setting; no             riding is involved)
• One 60 minute follow-up coaching call (via phone)
Further coaching calls can be set up to expand on your exploration and to deepen the understanding of your equine-assisted experience. Fee: $795.

To sign up for your Private, Equine-assisted 1-on-1 Coaching Experience, please contact me via email, and I will connect with you to coordinate the details.


Upcoming Equine-assisted Group Retreat in the Fall (date TBD)

As we seem to be coming out of the worst of the pandemic and more and more people are being vaccinated, I will be offering an equine-assisted group retreat in the fall. 

Due to increased health safety measures the number of participants will be limited, and these retreats typically sell out fairly quickly. If you are interested and would like to be notified about the specifics ahead of time, please email me your name and contact info and put ‘Interested in Fall Retreat’ in the subject line of your message. You will be notified as more details of this event will be announced.
