Change your life!
Women in Transition
Have you had a life change recently? Are you ready to make a life change but don’t know how to start?
Maybe it’s a new career, maybe it’s starting a new business, maybe it’s finding your passion after your children have begun their own lives…or, maybe it’s finding your way after a loss of a husband or child.
My individual EGCM coaching sessions can change your life. We can work with or without my horses. However, you should know that horses are true compasses, they can guide you gently into knowledge you didn’t even know you had about life, love, loss and finding your way through to the best part of you. They can walk you through fear or teach you about leadership. While it is not necessary to work with the horses it can be a beautiful and powerful part of your healing.
Individual sessions can be one at a time or in a package that includes supportive phone coaching. Packages of 6-10 sessions to start is highly recommended! As with anything worthwhile, it takes time and work to reach success!
You are welcomed in my world
-- do not fear me
For though I am great in size and strength, swift and powerful
I am gentle in spirit, kind, compassionate and caring
And to many, I am known
"Working with Donna was a great experience. I was feeling stuck in my career path and needed guidance on next steps with my daughter who just turned 18. Through the process, I learned more about myself and gained clarity around the changes I needed to implement in my life. I thought, since there are coaches for sports and nutrition, why not apply the same principles to figuring out how to move forward on the best path possible in life - and it worked. I was very pleased with the thought and care Donna put into our sessions, the process, and how I felt when we concluded. I am grateful to be in better place in life!" Erin, March 2018
I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories – Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between.
I studied with the world's top health and wellness experts including:
Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, chair of nutrition at Harvard University
Andrew Weil, MD, director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
Gabrielle Bernstein, bestselling author and life coach
Susan Blum, MD, MPH, assistant clinical professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine
Mark Hyman, MD, founder of The UltraWellness Center
Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating
David Wolfe, raw food leader and nutrition expert
Marion Nestle, PhD, MPH, professor at New York University’s Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health
Mark Bittman, food writer for The New York Times and bestselling author
Joel Fuhrman, MD, family physician and leading expert on nutritional healing
I also have my Certificate in Naturopathic Wellness Coaching from the Institute of Naturopathic Wellness.
My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with my clients to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness. Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationships as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.
"I've found that diet programs don't work for me for some very specific reasons. Diets are other people telling you how they think you should reach goals that they think you should be aiming for. Donna's coaching is the complete opposite of that. She starts out by helping you uncover what your true goals are - not a number on the scale, but a vision of your future self. From there, she helps guide you through personalized strategies that help you discover what works to help you achieve your goals. I enjoy the life I'm living, and don't feel like I'm sacrificing my joy to live healthier. At the same time, I'm wearing clothes that have been sitting in the back of my closet for years, and I feel great!" Emily, October 2019
