What are people saying about my coaching programs?
"Having known Kayla personally, I initially reached out to touch base about pregnancy. My previous labor had been difficult and I was determined to be better prepared and committed to a natural birth. Kayla had recently given birth, and as I knew she had utilized substantial natural support during her pregnancy and labor (exercise, meditation, nutrition, essential oils, pressure points, etc.) I figured she would be a wonderful resource. What ensued was a customized eight-week program designed just for me. When I read through the plan and found weeks devoted to personal growth and past healing, I was apprehensive. I didn’t want a therapy session; I just wanted a better birth. But I trusted the process and am grateful for doing so. I was unaware of how much past emotional trauma, tension in my relationships and, mostly, my lack of self-awareness and self-care was controlling my life. With each week’s focus, I was able to make somewhat simple, yet drastic changes to my inner dialogue, thought process and lifestyle. By the time we integrated birth (and post-partum) preparation, I realized how essential focusing on my personal healing and growth was to being better able to prepare for my new baby.
I did not have time to do this program; I did not want to. But I am eternally grateful for investing in myself. In two short months I was able to take control of my life by acknowledging and redirecting my emotions and body and by re-prioritizing my commitments and goals for the future. Going through this program with Kayla gave me the tools to be confident and empowered myself to make a pathway for a fulfilling existence. My future is inspired. Not only am I happier, but I am more capable of coping with difficult emotions and situations in positive ways. Because I am more present for myself, I am becoming a better mother and partner and friend and sibling. I am ecstatic to have the confidence and drive to plan a home birth for my child and am making changes to follow my dream career.
Though much of this process is self-guided, the structure of the program naturally holds you accountable to yourself. Kayla offers a unique perspective, driven by her past experiences and her beautiful love and belief in others that enables you to dig deep into your soul and pull out your own strength and solutions, supported in a safe space. Her gentle and constant encouragement to embrace yourself and persist, to trust that you are worthy and enough, has been like finding a life-raft in a tumultuous storm.
Kayla is an exceptional life coach, driven by a passion and desire to empower individuals. Perhaps you are preparing for another child, perhaps you feel something is lacking or stagnant. Perhaps you have goals and desires in your heart that you are afraid to pursue. Kayla offers a judgment-free program designed just for you. The best part: you have nothing to lose and everything to gain."

"You know when you meet someone, and they have a natural, yet contagious inspirational shine to them? That is Kayla times 1,000. When you are around someone with this light that has so much love for other people, you cannot help but to love yourself-at least a little.
You know the childhood imagination we all once had? The imagination where we thought we would be doctors, firefighters, a dump truck driver, or the next Britney Spears without any fear of doubt or judgement? Somewhere between our creative childhood and our adult lives we lose that sense of creativity, and we gain doubt about ourselves. In a quick 4-5 weeks with Kayla, she brought that belief back into myself. I had the honor to meet with Kayla one-on-one and after these meetings I would find that I was back to my childhood imagination and I was fueled with inspiration. This is something I desperately needed, at no point in our lives should we stop dreaming about our futures.
Since my sessions with Kayla I have been able to shift my mindset concerning a delicate, yet very important situation in my life that I was allowing to take me over physically/emotionally. Kayla showed me that I was not loving myself throughout that situation, while that situation is still a part of my life it is no longer my life.
The Self Care Program with Kayla has helped me lay a foundation of sincere love for myself, Kayla is an investment to yourself-Self Love is priceless!"

Testimonials from my workshops:
"I loved the Mental Wellness Workshop. Kayla is a wonderful facilitator. Her essence shined bright with empathy, passion and wisdom. I felt so bad to check in late and almost just gave up and cried... but I felt the fear and embarrassment and did it anyway (my daughter was not falling asleep easy, I never even showered or changed my clothes that day and I was a hot mess in every aspect haha ) Anyways I am so glad I did! I have so many wonderful notes and gained a lot of good perspective from her. I have not completed a vision board in many years and I am inspired to do that again. Reminding me of the power of visualisation and setting my intentions. I loved all her suggestions and insight on mental wellness. She made us feel comfortable to speak up during the call and share our truth, or to not if we weren't feeling like it.. and no shame in that. She is an amazing woman and gifted in so many ways! Honestly I had never even used Zoom and had no idea what I was doing, so I was all out of sorts. Thank you, Kayla, for being so welcoming of me 20 minutes late and greeting me with your warm embrace. Sharing your gift with the world is a blessing to witness. I am so thankful to have been a part of this container and would recommend this workshop to literally everyone. I am really looking forward to more of her workshops."
"I can't express enough gratitude for Kayla’s thought provoking, powerful, & uplifting Mental Health workshop last night. During a time when fear is abundant, she challenged us to look at those fears & call them out, not hide from them. She allowed us to go through the process of breaking down our fears & negative thought processes to truly learn & grow from them, not hide from them. I feel like I am now equipped with the tools I need to rework my inner dialogue to follow my heart, my gut, & my true desires.
The value of this workshop is abundant. Rather than just something you can do once, she breaks down simple processes that you can include in each day. This allows her participants to not just grow & learn in those two hours- but take those lessons & apply them moving forward, over & over again.
I can’t recommend her workshops enough. From the value of the lessons learned, to the calm, empathetic, & open environment that she facilitates, it was all magnificent & well thought out. You can tell she genuinely cares about everyone she interacts with. Can’t wait for the next one!!"
"Kayla is a beautiful being with such a soothing grounded essence that translates in person and on a zoom call. I have had three experiences of Kayla’s offering and all the times they helped me pivot with a more positivity energy. I have experienced two group session with her one on self love and the other on mental health wellness and I was lucky enough to have a one on one healing in person .
The way she holds space for you to heal and unravel is so magical. She reminds me to be gentle with myself which is my biggest lesson."
"Our self-love workshop with Kayla was inspirational. We confronted our deepest fears and learnt things about ourselves that sometimes we’re scared to admit. We learnt how to turn our negative inner voice in to a nurturing, accepting and growing mindset."
Thanks so much Kayla for an unforgettable night
