HI! I'M NAN.
Our work together stands at the intersection of the eastern mind and western psychology. My background in Contemplative psychology + Buddhist psychotherapy (M.A.), Jungian Depth Psychology (PhD[s]), Gestalt, Yoga, Bodywork, Ayurveda, Indigenous Medicine Traditions, and Dance informs all of the work that I do.
I am passionate about working with individuals in discovery and transition, be that making big shifts, integrating peak experiences, or on the precipice seeking new choice points. I love supporting discovery and the creative possibilities that lead to an expansion of awareness.
This is an invitation: to explore who you are, where you are, and what you want. You may be in disarray and don’t know what to do next or where to start. You may believe in yourself and your own capabilities, and you’re ready to learn more about how to use this wisdom to feel more centered and aware. You may be ready to discover, play, create, and expand into the inherent healing that comes from acts of creativity.
Wherever you are in your journey with your self: You’re invited. To expand into a space where we take an embracive view of your life, recognize what is and is not working, and use your embodied wisdom to find the paths and tools that resonate with your deepest, truest self.

HOLISTIC COACHING WITH NAN
In addition to over 20 years of extensive trainings and ongoing studies in the fields of psychology, embodiment, and indigenous wisdom traditions, Nan served as core faculty at Esalen Institute for almost a decade. She holds a clinical Masters Degree in Contemplative Psychology and Buddhist Psychotherapy, from Naropa University; and is currently a PhD student in Jungian Depth Psychology. These perspectives support her in taking a brilliance based lens when working with individuals, couples, and groups--which recognizes the inherent wisdom in all responses to life. With this embracive view, Nan enjoys being a creative ally, noble friend, and contact point on your journey of deepening awareness, supporting insights, recognizing patterns, and new choice points.
Nan teaches and consults nationally and internationally. Her background has been working with powerful and creative individuals, and fortune 500 companies. Her clientele ranges from high-profile individuals managing visibility, to entrepreneurs navigating various phases of startups, those needing support integrating peak experiences (from relationships, psychedelics, major life transitions), creatives in a range of expression. She also works with those seeking support unwinding traumatic experiences, and those seeking an ongoing secure environment to inquire, process, gain and unpack insights.
In Nan's practice, you’re welcome as you are. All of you. This is a space for us to unravel and weave together. It is her intent to hold an embracive environment, where you learn to give yourself radical permission in all circumstances. Learning to embrace that there is nothing wrong with you – even if you think that there is. Part of growth can be learning where you are in pain, and learning what helps.
How do I get started?
Perhaps you are ready to dive in, you need coaching right now. Or maybe you are not quite sure if now is the time, or if I am the right fit. Maybe you have some questions?
The next step (you’ve already come this far) is to reach out. Send me a message and we can set up a time to chat and see if we are a fit.
I offer a free 15 minute phone call. We can have a brief discussion about what is going on for you.
Together we can explore if I am a fit for your healing journey.
“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”
