Hi, I’m Beth

My journey to meaningful healing work comes from many beautiful places. I deeply appreciate having close family members who modeled a lifelong commitment and love for helping and healing of the individual, the community and society. My parents’ work for social justice, spiritual connection and self-healing was an inspiration for me at a young age and an aspiration as I grew up. 

I happily settled into a career in international development after college, which exposed me to a multitude of cultures, countries and chances to make a positive impact in the world. This work offered an opportunity to live out my values of curiosity, exploration, deep connection and being of service, and gave me a taste of collective helping and healing. After starting a family and walking several loved ones through medical crises, I sought out a new career path that would allow me to work more closely with individuals and small groups.

My career discernment process coincided with the Covid-19 crisis, which opened me up even more to new possibilities for work. As a feeler and an empath, I was deeply affected by the collective suffering of the world. But also as an optimist and a spiritual being, I continuously feel hope for our collective and individual healing from that period of crisis. Through Holistic Health and Wellness Coaching, I am able to be an active part of transformation and building new possibilities for living and being.  

Some of my other roles include mother to a fabulous 11-year old daughter and a sweet Doodle doggie, traveler, baker, yogi and meditator. I am a qualified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher and I weave mindful living into coaching sessions and small groups. 

I’d love to get to know you better. Let’s connect!

 

1:1 Holistic Coaching

In this highly virtual time in our history, I meet clients where they are. I offer virtual individual coaching sessions using Zoom and in-person sessions in Charlottesville, Virginia. A typical coaching relationship will continue for approximately 10-15 sessions that meet weekly or bi-weekly, with each session lasting 45-60 minutes. The first coaching session focuses on establishing the connection and creating a personal vision, while subsequent coaching sessions address wellness goals that bridge up to that vision.

My coaching services provide a space where people can explore their current state of self-awareness, regulation and efficacy. Through inquiry, I will walk clients through their wellness challenges, exploring triggers, blockages, living out values and tapping into strengths. Coaching fosters the idea that self-reflection is not an add-on activity to people’s already busy lives, but it is a way to nourish people with intentional actions that restore inner balance.

Small Group Coaching

I also offer occasional group coaching series, with approximately 4-6 sessions per series. Group coaching can provide an extra sense of community and connection in this time in the world and in this time in our lives when we may feel lonely or disconnected. Gathering as a group to discuss challenges and goals can be an antidote to the aloneness that many people are feeling.
