I discovered coaching at a time of major transition in my life. For so many years I had lived the life that I thought I wanted. I worked in the art world in New York City, had a beautiful apartment in Brooklyn, traveled to amazing cities, and was extremely unhappy. I felt lost and unsure of who I was. And so I left my job, my career, my relationship, and New York to move to the jungle of Costa Rica to take time to heal. It was during this time that coaching allowed me to peel back the layers of untruths I had told myself and observe what was holding me back. Now that I saw what was actually possible, there was no going back. It was time to act.
I am now a certified Souluna Life Coach, trained under the guidance of Coby Kozlowski, and work with men and women who are ready to create change in their lives. Shifts come in all shapes and sizes and there is no magic formula to find happiness. This is why I believe in working with the whole client - body, mind, spirit, and emotions. As a yoga educator and Reiki practitioner, I incorporate different modalities of exploration and experimentation with clients in order to transform old limited-beliefs into new ways of thinking, seeing, and being.
Currently, I spend my time between Brooklyn, Costa Rica, and Maine guiding yoga, speaking with clients, leading retreats, building the WanderFreely community, and continuing to learn what it means to be human.
What it’s all about?
What if you had the power to create your own life? To make decisions that empower and enliven you! What would it look like? Who would you be? What would you do? Where would you go?
Here’s the thing, you do have the power. You have the power of choice and you can choose to step into a life you love, to show up for yourself, and to truly embrace the magic of being alive.
If you are ready to dive deep into self-inquiry, I am ready to support your exploration and expansion. We’ll examine limited-beliefs that are holding you back, celebrate your unique gifts, and co-create Soulwork to move you forward towards a life of fulfillment.
As a Coach, there are three things that I am passionate about, authenticity, curiosity, and transformation. These are some of my personal core values and I feel that when they are brought into the coaching relationship, a safe and open place for growth is created.
Authenticity: I’m not interested in who you think you should be. I’m interested in who you are and where you want to go. And so you are invited to the table. You with all your joy, self-doubt, rage, compassion, bliss, and whatever else may show up. It's all welcome.
Curiosity: You're on this Earth! How amazing is it that you are here at this time, in this body, in this place. Let's get curious about what it means to be human, to experience life, to fully engage and see what’s on the other side of doubt.
Transformation: If you’re considering coaching, you probably are already feeling the shift. That small voice inside you that is whispering for change or maybe it’s a loud roar of your passions trying to break free. Whatever it is, listen. As humans, we are not meant to stay the same or to stay small. We are made to learn, grow, and transform.
So whether you feel like you’re on the verge of something great or that you would like guidance towards your next step, coaching is a powerful experience. It can help you view your life with new perspective, find your voice, and move forward with confidence. Are you ready to start the conversation? Let's connect.
What clients are saying…
“I was fortunate enough to work with Nicole as she completed her certification to become a Life Coach. I was completely new to the idea of coaching and had no idea what to expect. The few expectations I did have were more than exceeded. She asks the hard questions gently and has been a great comfort throughout the past year. Even if I was initially nervous to get on a call with Nicole, I alway hung up feeling lifted, comforted, and motivated. I am beyond grateful to have her in my life and know that no matter what fabulous place she’s landed in, she’s only a phone call away.” ~ Kendra
"I love having coaching sessions with Nicole. I feel so at ease with her, she allows me freedom to express what I need to and helps me to think of situations in a different way. She also gives me some useful tools that I can incorporate into my daily life. I would highly recommend for anyone to schedule a session with Nicole. I can’t wait for my next one!" ~ Caitlyn
"Nicole encourages you to explore situations from many points of view so that you can come up with a meaningful direction to move in, with actionable outcomes to help you move towards whatever your goal may be. Using many different techniques she gives you the courage to trust your instincts and believe in yourself - I call her my personal cheerleader. I’ve made huge leaps forward on many aspects of my life that I was stuck on and faced some big scary fears along the way. Everyone needs a Nicole :)" ~Joanna
“Working with Nicole is an amazing and special experience! I’ve been in traditional counseling in the past and this feels very different. Nicole has a magical gift of looking at things from different angles and asking thought provoking questions that leave you pondering and processing for days (or months!). I still reference some of my notes from our initial conversation when I journal or am working through a challenging time. When I find myself falling into old patterns I can hear Nicole’s positive, yet honest, thought provoking questions and it helps me turn my old habits around. She guides you to find the answers on your own, while holding you accountable and helping you realize you are worth the effort and change. Instead of just rehashing a story, Nicole structures the call with a topic and successfully facilitates that conversation so it feels proactive and productive. Her approach is action oriented, without being pushy or making you feel like you must immediately change. Nicole has a wealth of knowledge and resources to spark a fire and then guide you on your own to work on the topics discussed. Nicole is extremely approachable, compassionate, real, and genuine, which makes it easy to be honest, feel safe, and open up about vulnerable topics.” ~C.C.
