Sometimes transitions happen to us: changes in relationships, work, relocating to a new area. Other times we initiate the process. Either way it shakes things up! But as we learn the lessons we need to learn from the transition we head into the next phase of our life lighter, cleaner + with more freedom.

Shedding your old version of you? Want to get comfortable in your new skin?  Ashley (a health/nutrition coach) + I paired up to offer the most useful tools for moving consciously through your change process. I know from my own life (and transitions) that it is so much easier and faster with these vital tools on hand: the Enneagram, meditation, fresh food, and strategies to process challenging emotions through your system. Also with a self-study ecourse you gain immediate access to all 6 week’s of content enabling you to pick and choose and go at your own pace. Read on for all the details! xo Courtney

Uplevel Conversation


“I have to write you to first say thank you for encouraging me to sign up for the UPLEVEL course and to listen in on the summer of meditation! Although UPLEVEL is a recording – I listen faithfully on my way to work to consider connection and stillness over a mindset of fear and never being enough or doing enough.” Kirsten, Non-Profit Leader, Dallas TX

“I look forward to coaching sessions with Courtney because I know she will help me clear things out and I will feel heard. I use what she taught me about my Enneagram personality all the time now! Not in a harsh way but it makes me recognize that I can do things differently and not get caught in the pattern. It also makes me question more and ask what is my ego and what are my true deeper desires?” Catalina, Entrepreneur & Montessori School Director, Dallas, Texas

“At first I didn’t think I would make any changes but after working with Ashley, I started believing I could. I not only had the support of a coach, but of a friend. I learned more about myself and the underlying problems that slowed me down from attaining goals. We hit on subjects that I never thought triggered my eating habits. What Ashley’s doing is a much more approachable way of dealing with eating, weight and lifestyle issues.” Rebecca, Graphic Design Artist, Milwaukee, WI

My life has always been good but with meditation it’s as if the colors of the world have become brilliant and everything is just better so I wanted to make a list of the improvements that I have seen in me since I have been meditating: I am more patient and compassionate with coworkers, myself and others. I am more present. I talk to people more…. I speak from within more often and my words are now authentic. When I stop and ask myself/ my inner guide, what am I really saying or what do I really want? The thoughts that come out seem truer than if I thought them or analyzed them in my head. I am Calmer. My emotions do not debilitate me anymore. I still feel my emotions in my body but I don’t hang on to them…This has been such a fantastic journey in self-discovery.” Tiffany, Returned Peace Corps Volunteer and Medical Professional, Erie, Pennsylvania

“It’s very difficult to talk about emotional eating but Ashley helped me to do it by being compassionate and creating a safe and lovely atmosphere for our conversations.  Since I started my sessions with Ashley I’ve been paying more attention to my body, listening to it more and put it first in the list of things I take care of.  I would describe Ashley as a loving person who is genuinely interested in supporting her clients and who really wants her clients to succeed.” Cecilia, Life and Business Coach, Amsterdam, NLD
