Whole Health Coaching
Our approach to Whole Health Coaching is for anyone looking for a satisfying and healthy life that is centered and grounded in their Essential Self. In other words, a life that flows from one’s inherent wholeness. We guide you in identifying your own innate resources and partner with you in integrating four key relationships: your relationship with yourself, others, nature, and the Transcendent. The integration of these four areas we believe leads to awakened living, a life of ultimate wellness.
We create a safe space for you to speak from the heart about what matters to you versus what’s the matter with you. We find this helps people identify their own personal meaning, aspiration, and purpose. Although we all have wounds, we don’t start with the assumption that you are broken or in need of fixing. Sadly, one of the collective myths that has taken hold of many is that we are broken.
All too often many people don’t feel they have a voice or a space to be heard and so this is where we begin with a commitment to listening deeply to you. We explore your dreams and desires in various areas of your life, whether personal or professional. From here healing, growth, and transformation become possible leading to greater meaning, connection, and inner peace.
Each of these four key relationship areas—self, others, nature, and the Transcendent—have different entry points where one can begin the work of self-discovery and personal growth. Several of these areas overlap with one another because this is a holistic model for wellness.
The Interface Circle of Health is a map of sorts. It is our attempt to convey visually what is sometimes beyond words. Below the Circle of Health you will find areas or phrases to help you identify where you would like to experience a break through.
What follows are the four key relationship areas of self, others, nature, and the Transcendent. The lists under each area are not exhaustive. They are intended to offer you guidance in discerning where you would like to begin on your journey of self discovery and personal growth.

This is an opportunity to take your life to the next level with new found passion, purpose, and meaning. Remember though, as we pursue this journey together it’s not uncommon that messages from within and without can emerge to block us from our full potential. Together though, we will identify the obstacles that may be getting in your way and create strategies to develop new mindsets and practices that align with who you truly are.
We’ll support you in creating a life filled with meaning and purpose by helping you discover what matters to you versus what’s the matter with you.
Whole Health is an alternative health care philosophy. In a broader context, this phrase also describes a lifestyle and way of being. In both cases, Whole Health indicates the working towards and ultimately achieving a sustainable healthy balance in all aspects (mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual) of a person’s life. – Tami Brady
