What is Wellness?
Wellness is the holistic approach to learning and making healthy lifestyle choices that integrates mind, body, and spirit. It’s present moment living with an awareness that everything we think, feel, and do affects who we are, how we feel and how we experience life. Through the lens of openness, curiosity and self-compassion, wellness is a journey of coming to know ourselves better so we can make daily choices to care for ourselves in ways that bring balance, value, fulfillment, and purpose to life.
“Research shows personal neglect is the greatest single cause of being unhealthy and that 53% of our health and wellbeing is determined by our lifestyle choices.”
Coaching is different than counseling. While counseling is often looking back to determine how the past is affecting the present, coaching is present and future focused. It’s about growth and moving forward with small steps that add up to big steps over time. The coaching philosophy believes we are experts on ourselves and sometimes just need help discovering what’s already inside. While the client determines the overall focus, direction, and goals of sessions, the coach provides structure, active listening, tools, encouragement, and support to help increase awareness around what’s happening in the present moment, identify negative core beliefs and self-defeating habits that might be keeping a client stuck, then create life-giving steps to move forward.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” – Viktor Frankl
Benefits of Wellness Coaching
Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Growth
As we learn how to live in the present moment, identify our needs and take care of ourselves, we prepare the soil to grow in ways we can’t even imagine!
Mindfulness, Self-Compassion and Kindness
It starts with us! We are often harder on ourselves than anyone else. When you learn to show up for yourself the same way you would your best friend, everything changes.
Deeper Relationship with your True Self
Through experiencing grace and truth in relationship, safety is created so who you really are can come to the surface and be seen, known, and valued.
Healthier Relationships with Others and God
Becoming clear on who we are and who we are not, what we are responsible for and what we
are not responsible for, allows us to develop healthier attachments toward others and God.
Life is more fulfilling when we’re living in balance. Through increased self-awareness and
present moment living, places out of balance are identified, then a plan is developed to restore balance one small step at a time.
We are each created with a purpose. Whether exploring for the first time or transitioning
through a life season, knowing where you are going provides direction and life-fulfillment.

“Jennifer has a unique gift for leading groups. I found a sense of community for the first time in one of her groups over 13 years ago. She creates a safe place for people to be authentic and vulnerable in a way that is rarely experienced in daily life. Most of this comes from Jennifer modeling healthy growth in her own life and providing hope as someone who is a few steps ahead on the same journey. She achieves just the right balance of grace and truth in her coaching, which is foundational to Christ-centered growth. Feeling seen and heard in a group, and accepted for who I am, has been transformational in my life.”
“Jennifer has coached me through areas of my life that I needed insight to walk through successfully. Her coaching wasn’t about giving me the answers, but about showing me how to identify the deeper issues I was struggling with for myself. Then helping me to discover the best path, in doable steps, for healing. The growth that came wasn’t so much about solving issues but developing me into more personal maturity and health. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone who wants godly assistance navigating the bumps of life”
