Hello! I'm Kori!
I'm so excited you are here!
I do what I do because I believe that life is hard, but it is harder to not live it fully. Operating within this nuance requires us to become reflective, resourced, and resilient.
If you're like me, you long to feel rooted and to understand yourself, and you've been down many meandering, oftentimes dead-end roads that lead you into shame and self-judgement, over and over and over again. All the while, you know that it's harmful, dysfunctional, and misaligned with what you truly want.
Perhaps you have fallen into patterns of emotional avoidance, harsh and critical self-talk, a chaotic relationship with food, perfectionism, or chronic dieting and body obsession that has you feeling crazy and stressed out. Maybe your relationships are suffering as a result, and you want to escape the vicious cycles that leave you feeling exhausted and helpless.
I believe we are here on this planet for so much more than to worry about food, our appearance, pleasing others, not being good enough, and getting swept away by the culture's ideas about who and how we should be! We are humans, with unique strengths, tendencies, and personalities, all of which have gifts within them. But sometimes they've become hidden, even to us.
I also believe we are here to explore who we are and that whatever path we land upon has the capacity to transform us. I am a confidante, a healer, a teacher, and a partner to my clients as they reach into the vast expanses of their lives and develop a trust in the deep intelligence of their individual journeys that are oftentimes painful.
One of our primary tasks as we navigate our messy, crazy, magical lives, is to lean toward acceptance. To develop a softness of spirit. Precisely because life brings difficulty and unexpected hardship, we need to build our suppleness to such circumstances. I have found over the many years in which I've been a coach, a therapist, and most importantly, a human, that this process is best served by inviting our cores, the deepest parts of us to speak. It is through less force and more gentleness, fewer expectations and greater awareness, more being and less doing, less selfing and more connecting, where we meet our truest, healthiest selves.
If you are ready to open the map that leads you to a more healthful, peaceful, free, flexible, and embodied relationship with life, I will walk alongside you to create change and access your hope and strength.
And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?

And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer. ~ Rilke
I absolutely feel that most of the success I have had, am having, is due to you♥️. Thank you.
You have a beautiful way of engaging with people, reaching them, giving them the strength and tools to dig deep, make the changes they need to be able to be whole! Your smile lights a room.. your laugh is infectious. You are beautiful.

I believe I have “blossomed” into something more than I could ever have found on my own, under your care, leadership and training. You dove right in with me and helped me connect and feel comfortable. I realized early on, and have written about this several times, that food/nutrition was only a small piece of the puzzle. What was going on in my mind was holding me back and frustrating me and keeping me from success. You continue to open up the possibilities and help me learn and grow and explore more vividly and with purpose. I am also so very grateful.

What stands out to me most is your abundance of compassion and your passion to share your knowledge and experience with others. You are so giving. With your caring and sharing I have learned so much about myself--even things I didn’t know that I didn’t know. I have gained knowledge about acceptance, openness, curiosity, perspective, compassion, mindfulness, emotions, feelings, health, nutrition, confidence, emergence, awareness, values, character strengths, autonomy, relatedness, competence, vulnerability, zest, common humanity, and gratitude. Oh, yeah--and love. You are such a bright spot in my life, as I know you are in others' lives. And for all of this, I am so grateful.
