However, understanding what changes need to be made and how to make these changes last is a life skill that is rarely taught. The demands of everyday life have never been greater. The bewildering array of wellness guidelines, products, and services makes it difficult to create a personal formula. And making change that lasts is hard.


Having a coach is helpful to many people trying to make lasting changes.  This workshop will help set the foundation for ongoing changes and help you decide what support you need to help you make lasting change in your life.
