I am a Unique Visionary Life Coach who combines decades of real life business and life experiences with formal training in coaching allowing space for you to transform and create the life you have always dreamed of living now.
Energy Healing modalities, including Reiki & the unique Oshirya Healing Method is combined with formalized coaching to help remove limits and expand your potential and talents in all areas of life.
I engage clients in a self-discovery process that uncovers the root of the roots of all blocks and challenges. This allows clients to begin to create an environment that feels:
As my clients regain their natural internal power, they are free to forge a new direction in their personal life path. I combine a variety of methods tailored to the client’s specific needs, including Reiki, Oshirya, NLP, and EFT.
Combined with these skills, I leverage a 20+ year corporate background allowing a uniquely practical approach. As a working mother of two, former CPA and finance employee of a Fortune 500 company, I am also able to incorporate real-life business experiences into the coaching sessions, allowing a space for professional advancement and clarity for you.
My goal is to help you re-discover, re-connect and re-imagine your life. Why? Because this is YOUR life and it is here for you to experience it with love, joy and happiness.
By sharing new ways to let go of thoughts and behaviors that have undermined you in the past, a new space is created so the best part of you can emerge.
My individualized approach allows me to create a unique program for you and for all that you wish allow into your life with ease, grace and joy.
As a trained and experienced Life Coach, I share tools & techniques and combine them with unique energy frequencies, compassion and understanding to help you to create the life you imagined.
Committing to a happier, joyful, healthier and abundant lifestyle is just that – a commitment. It might feel overwhelming when you look at where you are and where you want to be. That's alright. Take a deep breath. You can do this with loving support and compassion. You know why I know that? Because I believe in you and I know that when a desire is born within, the power to allow that desire to manifest is created.
Allow me to support you as you take this beautiful step into the world you have always believed in but didn't know how to create it.
"You will be dead in just a few years if you don't get your stress levels under control," said the doctor as she looked directly into eyes. "Stress" was her diagnosis? I couldn't imagine she was right. Lately, I had been compelled to visit many types of doctors. Each conducted their own series of tests. Some did a multitude of blood work while others requested many sonograms and other examinations, including a colonoscopy, even though I was only in my 30's. It seemed like I was in a constant cycle of seeing doctor after doctor and not one of them could figure out what was happening to my body. It seemed to happen slowly yet it then seemed hit me at once. My hair began to fall out in the shower in large amounts. My hairdresser noticed that I had developed a bald spot and was the one who told me! I hadn't even seen it! I knew why I missed it. I was a full time working mom with two very young children. I was working over 60 hours a week and even worked additional hours on the weekends when projects were due. Travel for my job was required too so I was away from my young children and my home which was very upsetting and emotionally disturbing for all of us. So even then I justified not acknowledging the bald spot and ignored the sign my body was sending me.
I was always going, going, going. There was no time for myself. Ever. Then the rectal bleeding began, almost daily, and I knew something was terribly wrong. But I didn't know what it was or how this had happened to me. I was 'superwoman' or so I believed. I could do it all. So I did.
And as a result, my body, mind and spirit paid a very heavy price. Late at night, after I had stopped working, bathed and put the children to bed, finished the laundry, cleaned up the house, paid the bills, etc. I would collapse into bed. Exhausted. Expecting to sleep like a baby, I was stunned when I didn't. In fact, I barely slept. During this time in my life, I slept about four to five hours a night. My mind would not shut off. It raced with thoughts and all the things I had to still do. The never ending list of responsibilities played over and over in my exhausted mind. It was never quiet. Like a child having a temper tantrum, it went on and on. Rest never came easily.
So when my doctor said, "You will be dead in just a few years if you don't get your stress levels under control," I was shocked. I didn't want to believe her because that meant I had done this to myself. How was that possible. How could stress do this to someone? Isn't this just how life is? Busy, busy, busy? Yet inside of me, something was triggered. Facing a diagnosis like that forced an internal transformational that I would not truly recognize for many years.
So I quietly left her office and walked to my car and broke down into a million pieces. I began crying from a place deep in my belly, like I had never cried before. Terrifying thoughts raced through my mind. My children would be raised without their mommy. I would never see them grow up and experience all the joy I knew we were meant to experience. This was so unfair. How did this happen? How did I get here? And most importantly, would I ever get out of this deep, dark place with a death sentence only a few years away?
And in that moment, without my conscious knowing, my journey began and lead me upon a path of holistic recovery. Mainstream medicine could not offer solutions to my crisis so I was forced to find a new path. A path I had not journeyed upon before and one I will forever continue on. It offered me radical ideas, approaches, and solutions I had never been exposed to before. Treatments and ways of living I knew nothing about.
I made a commitment to myself that if I had created this death sentence in my life, then I would have the power somewhere within to uncreate it. In that moment of making the choice to understand and act upon the new holistic ideas that were being presented to me, a portal to a new dimension of healing was opened for me and I leaped.
Now, I teach and share all I have learned. Allowing others to finding solutions and healing within their lives.
I am honored you have found me here and may our journey be one of light and love.

Reiki is a Japanese healing modality which was developed in 1920 and brought to the United States in 1937 by Hawayo Takato. Reiki is the channeling of the primal life force energy through the Reiki Master to the client. A Reiki treatment allows stress to be released and thus and promotes healing in the mind, body & spirit. Although it is not a replacement for medical or psychological treatments, it complements traditional methods. Please discuss with your doctor the addition of Reiki to your health treatments.
According to the Center for Reiki Research, "a study done in 2007 by the National Health Interview Survey indicates that 1.2 million adults and 161,000 children received one or more sessions of energy healing therapy such as Reiki in the previous year. According to the American Hospital Association, in 2007, 15% or over 800 American hospitals offered Reiki as part of hospital services."
Reiki may be done in person or from a distance. Either way, the client is fully clothed and the energy is passed without touching the client. A calm and relaxing feeling is often experienced by the client. Each session is as unique as the person who is receiving it.
Reiki is a powerful yet subtle energy modality that can support improvements in the mind/body & spirit.
There are a lot of life coaches out there today offering the same or similar services. Dawn has so many qualities that set her apart from the rest, beginning with that incredibly warm smile of hers. From the moment you meet her you can tell she is able to quickly connect and understand what you are feeling. She is a special healer.
