To be humbly rooted as we grow


Mental Health Coach & Education Consultant


Lauren's coaching and consulting journey began while working as a classroom teacher. There she realized how much of an impact our inner journey has on others - not to mention on our own health and happiness! Over the last 7 years, she has had the great honor of leading school-wide resilience trainings, coaching teachers and administrators, and supporting hundreds of clients in their mental health journeys.


Lauren has always believed strongly in the value of coaching the whole client. In addition to her ICF-accredited certifications as a Life Coach, Health Coach, and her additional training as a Mental Health Coach, she has dedicated her time to developing skills and knowledge in a wide range of areas so that she may continue to support her clientele in more efficiently reaching their goals.


Some of her areas of expertise include:

- Communication & collaboration 

- Resilience 

- Stress management 

- Overcoming burnout 

- Metabolic health (including diet, exercise & sleep)

Undoubtedly though, it is in schools that Lauren truly finds her calling - supporting those who support our nation's children:

"Working in education is extremely rewarding. Whether I am supporting staff 1-1 in building necessary skills, leading a school-wide training to lay the foundation for a culture shift, collaborating with leadership to build out collective efficacy, or mediating conflict between team members, every ounce of energy given is an honor, because it is ultimately for the students. My work helps to create an environment where staff and students feel empowered, connected, and resilient.

Now that is a mission worth every moment."

What Clients Have Said

"During each session with Lauren, my experiences were acknowledged and validated, my accomplishments were celebrated genuinely, and my struggles were considered opportunities to learn more about myself .... Following my 90-day transformation journey, I feel empowered. I know how to bridge the inconsistencies of what I should be doing into what I want to be doing." With much gratitude, I have come out of this journey with the map and tools to confidently build self-equity through comprehensive self-care. 

Emily P.

"I never thought I was the "type" to participate in or get much out of Life Coaching, but going through the 90-day program was a game changer for me, and I quickly realized how impactful it could be! Lauren helped me discover the deeper motivators behind how I wanted to feel and who I wanted to be. We worked together to create action steps to get me closer to feeling that way and being that person. I would recommend health and life coaching to anyone and everyone!"

Tressa W.

"I am a veteran teacher and a mom of two adult children. I have always been a caretaker of others and put them first at my own expense. Last year, I had the opportunity to participate in a year-long wellness professional development led by Lauren. I learned and realized how important it was to take care of myself so that I will better be able to take care of those I care for. This was a game changer for me. I have been able to use several different suggested techniques presented and am maintaining those practices. I have also joined the "Wellness Warriors" with Lauren and feel so much more empowered to continue wellness practices in my life. I wish that I would have known all this a long time ago.  Lauren is so open and honest with those she works with. I always feel free to share my successes and shortfalls with her no matter what. She is gentle and guides you where you are."

Joy M.

"Lauren has changed my life, both personally and professionally. After working with Lauren for 2.5 years, I have learned so many life skills that I will use forever. I was able to participate in professional developments led by Lauren at our school. Truthfully, I had a unique experience with the professional developments. At that point in my life, I wasn't ready for all of the tools and strategies that she was providing. It took time. But that's the amazing thing about Lauren's work... it can be implemented at any stage of your life. And when you are ready for those tools, they are incredible. She has taught me about balancing work and personal life, having courageous conversations, owning and honoring my truth, and having control over my stressors.  After implementing the strategies that Lauren taught me, I felt like I was able to become grounded in my work and find joy in each day.
