About Us

Beliefs

I believe that each us are created by a God who loves us deeply. I believe every person has a perfect purpose and one-of-a-kind, cyclical journey to reach it. I believe that each of us has a duty to protect the land for future generations, as well as the generations who were here long before. I believe in a world where all peoples have access to and feel safe outdoors. I believe that nature is within us, and always has been. I believe as a health and wellness coach and guide in many places of privilege, I can and must break down barriers to wellness and outdoor practices while also providing for my family.

F.A.Q.

Who is coaching for?


Outside Wellness coaching is for individuals in transition who are looking to create a clear vision for their life and take beautiful, value-centered steps to reach it. These seasons of transition may include adolescents, college or post-graduate students, new parents, and empty-nesters.

How does it work?

I help women & girls reconnect with nature to improve their quality of life through guiding outdoor adventures, facilitating art and writing self-discovery exercises, and with a client’s permission, providing education around evidence-based healthy living strategies.

From my training with the Mayo Clinic and the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaches, I deliver a strength-based approach, grounded in counseling psychology, positive psychology, MBSR, prevention research, social work, solution-focused therapy, and motivational interviewing to help you connect with your values and strengths to overcome obstacles & create lasting change.

Coaching is not a quick-fix trend. Outside Wellness provides long-term strategies that will help you stay well far beyond our time working together.

What do we talk about?

We talk about you! We talk about your vision for the most beautiful and purposeful life you can imagine—and how to get there. We also talk about what ever is going on in your life right now. Some common focus areas may include stress management, sleep, nutrition, physical activity, your relationship with money, work-life balance, boundaries & communication, weight management, and de-cluttering.
