Wise Intuitive Experience With Practical Solutions! “Working with Savannah has been a rich and wonderful experience. She immediately grasps what is important and hones in on it, even things I might have written off or not paid attention to. Her experience and resources helped me navigate a particularly challenging situation quickly and easily, saving me a lot of time and stress. My view of what is possible has expanded to include parts of myself and my life that I had forgotten about or given up on, and now I have a plan for how to get there.”

Consistently transformative sessions! ”I first saw Savannah 3 years ago for about 5 months. I was a new mom and unhappy with my career decisions. Seeing her really helped to calm and ground me, and also to trust my own intuition about my next steps. I came back to see her recently and have found the same consistently transformative feedback and guidance. Seeing Savannah, I believe in the power of coaching to help me live the way I want to live my life. Every time, I feel more centered and confident about where I am going.”

So blessed! ”I’ve known Savannah for over 14 years. She guided me back from postpartum depression after the birth of my daughter many years ago and recently I have sought life coaching from her. Empathetic, kind and intelligent – I feel “heard” and understood for the first time in years. Her metaphors, humor and guidance have lifted me from a place of old, toxic patterns. She is, without question, the most emotionally gifted and empathetic human I have been fortunate enough to have in my life.”

  • I’ve done a lot of scary things in my life, especially when I was younger and didn’t realize the risks I was taking. As we grow older, we take on a new relationship with risk. We begin to analyze more, make “better” choices, and think twice before doing things outside of our comfort zone. The funny thing [...]

  • By Zohar Manor-Abel, shared via Flickr To begin 2014, I have a simple question for you: Who do you want to be this year? You, like me and everyone else I have met so far, have many different selves inside.  It is almost like we have an inner choir of voices, often singing in different keys. You [...]

  • A couple of years ago, I completed a two-year intensive training in Hakomi Therapy with the META Institute. The most recent research in neurobiology shows that mindfulness-based therapy is very effective for long term sustainable change. My life and career coaching clients come to me for one primary reason: They are ready for Change! This recent article [...]

  • A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Ted Sarvata of The Purpose Podcast. We explored purpose as a state of "being" and how to discover your own purpose. I propose that each person has an innate purpose:  being the most authentic, talented, loving version of yourself! I hope you take a [...]

  • One Fall morning a few years back, when my younger son was only 3, he rolled down his window as we drove over the Banfield overpass and shouted at the still mostly dry cap of Mt. Hood: "Hey ski mountain, better get some snow, cause I wanna ski on ya!" We are, as you probably guessed, a [...]

  • During the first week of Kindergarten last year, my youngest son reported back to me like an explorer returning from unknown territories: "Mama, did you know at school you can't listen to your body?" I took a deep breath, trying to manage the anxiety I had about sending my spirited, constant-motion boy into public school. "Really," I [...]

  • In my experience with my coaching clients, myself and other humans, I have discovered that the misalignment between WORD (what I say I want) and ACTION (what I do about it) comes from one of the following issues: I don’t really want what I SAY I want.  Instead, I am operating on an assumption about what I [...]

  • Most of the clients that come my way for life coaching are longing for more clarity. They have a nagging sense that something is missing but aren't sure what it is. Or, they feel certain about what they want, but don't know how to manifest it. Sometimes, they just feel an overall sense of confusion about their [...]

  • A couple of weeks ago I had a serious bout of seasonal allergies. Living in beautifully blooming Portland, Oregon, I can just step out my front door and see the tender pinks of the wistful Cherry trees, the reds and purples of the sturdy rhododendron bushes, and the bright whites of the Dogwoods. While not being as [...]

  • I am proud to announce that I have a new office space in the thriving Montavilla Business District in Portland, Oregon. It was a very quick move as Jyoti Family Wellness Center (my previous location) was asked to leave with only a couple of months notice so the landlord can remodel. It was hard to leave my [...]

  • Sometimes clients are surprised by how much we laugh during coaching sessions!  I have discovered that a playful and curious attitude toward even the trickiest problems helps to engage the creative and intuitive parts of the brain. Albert Einstein once said, "Play is the highest form of research." My clients are smart, conscious individuals who would "logic" [...]

  • Happy Halloween! Today as the kiddos don their super hero, zombie and cowpoke costumes, I invite you to consider the costumes that you wear every day of your life. One thing I have learned about us humans (and yes, that includes me) is that we hide our fears and darkest feelings behind the  superficial mask that we [...]

  • One of the top reasons I love being a life coach for women is that part of my job is to be true to myself. I can't hold space for my clients to listen to their own inner truth and follow the clarity of their hearts if I myself don't do the same! That would just be [...]

  • There is a simple yet profound attitude shift that can make all the difference in how you feel about yourself as you focus on achieving your goals. As a recovering perfectionist (is there a 12 step group for us?), I have experienced great relief in shifting my mindset from "be good" to "get better." Photo by [...]

  • Sudden anger, lingering frustration, resentment that sends you muttering under your breath, the deep ache of longing, bouts of sadness, that familiar trapped feeling of stuckness: all of these are signals from your spirit, like a fever calling you back to well-being. Over the 9 years that I have held sacred space with my clients, I have [...]
