The Flourish Formula,

an eight-step process to slowing down and accomplishing more.

BIENVENIDO, WELCOME!

I Am Courtney
a certified holistic life coach, writer, and recovering overachiever. I believe you are on the planet to make your mark. I also know how easy it is to lose yourself in an endless stream of goals and to-dos and to end up depleted and unfulfilled. After earning two Harvard graduate degrees and starting a family all in the same few years, I realized – after a third baby and a dose of professional heartbreak – that no one could give me the gold star I had been chasing. I knew what I wanted: To discover and release my most important professional gifts and to thrive personally. But I didn’t know how to create that life for myself. I have spent the past six years teaching myself and coaching others in powerful self-awareness tools and body practices that help us manage negative thoughts, reduce stress and get laser clear on what we are here to do. Each of these techniques is a potent ally. Together, they are The Flourish Formula. I am totally committed to helping you break out of the busyness fog to create the life you are here to live. Beyond feeling better (which is an inevitable outcome), I believe our world needs your unique voice and gifts.

Have you registered for my Virtual Book Release Party? You can do that here. Ever since I was a teenager and first really woke up to the joys of strolling through a museum, I can remember getting frustrated at artists who label their work uninspired titles...

I Have Not Done This In a While

I Have Not Done This In a While

Happy Friday! Today I made something for you I haven’t done in a while: a fresh guided meditation. This one is really special: consistently a favorite of coaching clients and definitely on my shortlist of powerful practices to dissolve stress in the body....

PRAISE FOR

the Flourish Formula

Julie

“Like receiving a massage for your whole life.”

The FLOURISH program was the reset I truly craved for my mind, body and spirit. It guided me back to a more calming and centered state in which my entire self needed so badly. My outlook and energy are more aligned and in sync. Plus, this was so ENJOYABLE. Each week I could feel my soul crave the new material and excited to put everything into practice even when it was hard at times.
The impact for me personally was extremely high. I can honestly say when I wrapped up the FLOURISH program, my ROI more than doubled. The content provided specific practices for me to experiment with that aligned with my stress areas. The overall effect was so soothing! I felt like I had received a massage after each call or each time I read a chapter from the book!

“Flourish Coaching Program is life-changing”

As I am reading and soaking in what I learned in your book and program and tweaking my daily life and imagining my Flourish calendar and seeing myself in my Enneagram type and the neglected side of it and having epiphanies….it’s all because YOU WROTE THIS BOOK! This program is awesome, life giving, life changing. And the strange part of that is, in a weird way, it doesn’t seem new or novel or beginner in anyway- it feel ancient… In a sense it seems like it’s been here in the world and it’s a resource that one can build on AS A BASE for a really fulfilling life and THAT is what is so amazing- the flow and the guidance and the language and the care- it is solid like a big sequoia tree. It’s just so integrated and complete that it’s hard to believe you just did this! I don’t know if my words are saying how truly impressed I am by the love and care in which you share your gifts with all of us, and how talented you are at what you do.

“Coaching with Courtney is a wonderful investment.”

Courtney is natural at integrating so many tools that you can simply relax into the process. It all just flows! I am so grateful that I got connected to her. Coaching with Courtney works and is a wonderful investment in yourself. I’m doing EVERYTHING I set out to do when I started coaching with her: meditating daily, writing/reading daily, exercising 3x/week (including running, yoga, and weight training), getting tons of sleep, taking on little creative projects here and there, and enjoying my work. Lots of plans coming up and feeling content for now. Thank you!!

“Coaching with Courtney reduces overwhelm and creates calm”

I feel calmer. I keep thinking through the statement from a couple of times ago: ‘I’m not here to grind through promotions.’ And I remember the first time we talked I was just completely overwhelmed with life. I’m busy right now, have a lot of stuff to do, and am tired from a lot of travel but I don’t feel overwhelmed now. Those are the lessons I’m really hoping to hold onto. I don’t need to grind through life so hard, I don’t need to be so busy, I need calm and quiet. And how can I feel brave, balanced, and boundless? What are my action plans for those?

“Courtney helped me find more happiness + healing.”

Upon completing my coaching experience with Courtney, I am ready to dive into my life again with the confidence I needed to discover within myself. It has been an incredible journey with her and we’ve discussed everything from meditation to life cycles to essential oils to nature therapy. After a year of experiencing trauma and painful relationships, this was the perfect time to search inwards for the answers I had been looking for. She’s been a gift in my life, and I’m so proud of myself for working so hard with her towards happiness and healing.

“Coaching with Courtney left me happier + more grounded.”

Coaching with Courtney is like taking a class about You. You find out things you like, and things You don’t like – about yourself, about the world around you, about patterns that You get stuck in. It has been wonderful to talk to someone smart, caring, & thoughtful to work through things, as it is not always so easy from the inside to see how you are stuck. As a result of our coaching sessions I feel more in control of my life. When stressful things happen I now have a very practical toolkit of what to do that works for me. I have also been happier and more grounded. Meditation has been an unexpected and awesome bonus.

“Courtney makes self-awareness a habit.”

Now I feel better. It is easier to wake up in a better mood. I used to frequently go to bed with a hurt on my heart and now I can process it, with meditation. It is easy to be a snowball rolling down hill. Now I can stop. I recognize when I am spiraling, or being too overbearing and I can push the pause button. These months working together have made self-awareness a habit that I will carry with me into the rest of my life.

“The Flourish Program was a life-changing intervention for me.”

On a personal level, talking about my Enneagram type and working through the guilt and shame I have carried for a long time was a life-changing intervention for me. I still go to that hard place, but I find myself kicking my shoes of, grounding myself, and searching for the beauty within. It has actually been a spiritual change for me. One of surrender and understanding.

“A life coach with a Harvard education and achievement path I can relate to”

I’m a huge fan of yours because your story/delivery/persona are a great fit for me. I’m a bit of an achievement-snob for lack of a better term so a life coach with a Harvard education and achievement path I can relate to is a better fit than someone who for example never left the town she grew up in, was a stay at home mom right out of school, etc. I will reiterate it is SO important in my opinion you are religion-neutral so that both religious and non-religious people can benefit. You do this super well.
