Joy, love and connection are our birthright. That is why we yearn for them. They are our true home.
Somewhere along the way we get hurt. We begin building walls around our hearts. Our traumas begin to reshape our views of the world and of ourselves.
After a while we lose sight of where we began. We forget how it feels to be truly vulnerable, open and connected with ourselves and others.
Working with me as your coach is like uncovering a secret map that's been hiding in plain sight. Everything you need to find your way back home is waiting to be found, and we can find it together.
I won't say the journey home is easy (because it usually isn't), but I will say that it's worth it. I would be honored to walk beside you and remind you to stop to enjoy the view as you reach new heights. Prepare to be blown away.
In our sessions I draw from my own personal experience, and rich training background in psychology, trauma, Somatic Awareness, neuroscience, and transformational coaching. I've been engaged in personal development work since I was 12 years old, and I've been coaching for 7 years. I've invested well over $100k and countless hours on coaching, training programs and personal development. I'm continuously in training so that I can deliver the highest quality service to my clients!
WHAT MY CLIENTS ARE SAYING
I have worked with several therapists and coaches, and none of them have ever been like Iris. She is very friendly and open, talking with her is like talking to one of your old friends. The one that you know no matter what they will tell you what you need to hear, not just what you want to hear. Iris has a very intuitive way of helping you deal with any past trauma or anxiety without having to relive it over and over. If you are looking for something new because you’ve tried everything else, call Iris. If you want to learn to move on with your life, call Iris. If you want to live your life better, call Iris. – Jessica H., Life Coaching Client**
Iris, more than any other coach, therapist or even friend, finally helped me conceptualize how negative my self-talk was and get out of some of those negative patterns. She did this by helping me find the other, more positive (and realistic) voice, first by embodying it herself. Iris is the most intuitive, empathetic person I've ever encountered. In the past, when I've tried to share the way I'm feeling with a professional, I haven't trusted that they've understood my perspective. With Iris, there is no doubt. And it's not just because she has spent years working through many of the issues she focuses on with clients. She listens, does extra research, asks the best questions, and checks in to make sure she's getting it. And you know what? She always does. - Hannah K. , Life Coaching Client**

YOU HAVE TWO Coaching Options:
The reality is that you might want recovery AND life coaching. You don't have to pick one! Both methods give you access to my toolbox, training and expertise.
For years my eating disorder was treated clinically in a sterile environment. I knew how to answer, how I should be, etc. so I was able to hide. There was no hiding from Iris because she's been there, and can see the next escape. She is a safe heart space yet professional with clear boundaries. Her approach is unconventional. I valued her years of personal experience and testimony. I’m no longer fearful or anxiety-stricken over grocery shopping. Iris is the best at delivering transparency and truth with love and compassion. She has a gentle tenacity. I didn't give up because she didn't give up on me. She drilled down alongside me. Go deep. Go deeper. There's gold in there. - Nicci A., Recovery Coaching Client**
Iris is the Calm Eye in my storm. As a person, she walks her talk ~ which brings integrity to her work and her ability to both support me and relate to what I'm experiencing as I navigate my own terrain and chase down my own breakthroughs. I can highly recommend Iris as someone who will "listen" for your brilliance, help you stay accountable to your own goals, help you regroup when you loose traction, and get back up and in the game of your precious life.
It was a gift to have Iris as my coach for 9 months and I grew exponentially during that time and had many victories in my personal and professional life. - Nadine F., Life Coaching Client**

*If you are currently dealing with an eating disorder or depression, and feel that your health or safety is in jeopardy, I require proof that you are working with a medical professional before I will take you on as a client. This is to ensure your safety, and make sure that you are getting the kind of help that you need. I am not a doctor–my expertise comes from life experience, research, and years of training as a coach.
