Work with a Certified Relationship School® Level 1 Coach
If you want to hire someone to guide you through your current or past relationship challenges in a way that will support you, but also challenge you, then you’re in the right place. Our coaches are trained by Jayson Gaddis who blends the very best of psychotherapy and coaching into a unique approach to relationships that will get results fast.
Our coaches job is to help you get the kind of relationship you want by examing everything that stands in your way. They will help you identify your non-negotiable needs, clarify your desires, and be true to your values and integrity. Most coaching is simply limited in scope and doesn’t deal with the complexities of human relationships.
Our coaches understand interpersonal neurobiology, results-based coaching, and the origins of your complex past and how it can undermine your present reality and partnership. These folks facilitate depth and transformation in a mindful, heart-centered way that will leave you feeling inspired to face your demons and share your heart with that special someone. So, you are getting a strong guide if you choose to hire one of our trained coaches.
The Relationship School® Coaches
Relationships are the Northern star of my work, whether it is mothering, writing, science or coaching. They have become the heart of my life. Truly meeting my clients is a sacred journey for me. Sitting with people pulls me all into the now, into a sense of wonder and gratitude.
I am a founding member, Mentor and Level 1 Coach at The Relationship School®. My entry into working with people was self-help groups and facilitating a year-long cycle for young mothers. I have training in group facilitation, coaching, conflict moderation, public speaking, NIA dance, and literary writing. I also have a PhD in ecology and have worked at various institutions across the world, such as Harvard University and ETH Zürich among others, satisfying the vagabond within me.
I have been married for 13 years (together for 16). My husband is American, I am German, our kids were born in Cambridge, MA, and in Vienna, Austria. We live in Switzerland. I love family time, yoga, the outdoors, archery, dance, music and crafting.
I love to learn. And relationships provide one of the richest contexts I know of for learning – about the relationship, about myself and another, about communication, conflict, individual needs and wants, about being human, and ultimately, about what love really is.
In my learning journey, my body has been a long-time, trusted, and deep teacher – primarily through dance and Ashtanga yoga, which I’ve been teaching since 2000. Beyond physical possibilities are the infinite facets of the mind and human condition, and I see every day how discipline and commitment yield a certain steadiness and build a foundation for growth and learning to be embodied. I believe that anyone willing to do the work can reap the rewards.
What I once perceived as a lack of connection and presence in my past planted the seeds for my core values to emerge and incite the process of becoming more and more myself. This has become my renewable resource – the fuel that kindles the flame that burns bright within me – the light I want to share!
I have been working with Jayson Gaddis for over three years; I am a founding member, Mentor, and Certified Level 1 Coach at The Relationship School®. You can find me at TWO TREES. and studio 72 in Portland, Maine, and continuing to study with Jayson virtually and in Boulder, CO where I plan to relocate this fall. I look forward to diving in with you.
As a student and a seeker on this path of life, I learn and grow every day. One of the biggest things I have learned is that when I step more into connection, I step more into myself and my own power…and that feels really good!
I work with my clients to help them do the same – to learn how to transform their lives through the quality of their relationships AND to gain more confidence, more choices, and more personal power in the process. I believe that the more self awareness you develop, the more empowered and free you are to make conscious choices…and then you can create the fulfilling life and quality in your relationships that you really want. I have experienced this firsthand in my own life as a client of various coaching and therapeutic styles, including Gestalt therapy, Buddhist centered therapy, and in my work as a founding member, apprentice and student with Jayson Gaddis and The Relationship School®.
Prior to launching my own coaching practice, I worked for 15 years as a small business owner and an athletic coach & mentor to athletes of all ages. I also have experience in conflict moderation and group facilitation. My formal education includes a BA in Psychology. I am currently a Certified Level 1 Relationship Coach with The Relationship School®
As a coach, I work with people who are ready to understand themselves on a deeper level. My clients are serious about diving into their issues and freeing themselves up to live life to its fullest measure.
Are you ready to feel more fulfilled in your life and relationships?
In addition to coaching, I am also a mother, a salsa dance instructor, a writer, a sometimes yogi, a friend, a rebel, a fine wine lover, and an all around beautifully-flawed, quirky, fun human.
With Love & Gratitude,
