Coaching Packages

One of the biggest regrets that people on their deathbeds have is “What if?” They always believe they’ll have more time and then one day, they don’t. Many people regret the things they didn’t do and not the things that they did do. By offering life coaching services, I help people get rid of the “What if?” mentality and turn it into “I will!”

Who AM I? ($350)

This package includes a comprehensive personality assessment followed by one coaching session. Many of us don’t know ‘who’ we are. We are thrown into the world and expected to thrive but find it difficult to do so because we don’t really know what makes us ‘tick.’


In order to know who you are, you have to know what your personality entails. Are you introverted? Are you a thinker? Are you intuitive? The personality assessment that I utilize will assess 16 core traits that are clustered around your interpersonal, thinking, and coping styles.

• You will receive a thorough report with this package. Knowing ‘who’ you are will help with the following:

• Thorough explanation of who you are as a person

• Realize what feels best for you in terms of functioning

• Understand what your strengths are and how they can be implemented in your life

• Increase awareness about how you interact with others and certain situations

• Identify which leadership styles and career pathways are most ideal for your personality type


Knowing who you are as a person is sometimes the biggest mystery. Once you know who you are, you will understand why you think and act the way that you do. You will be able to use those strengths to better assist you with your future aspirations.

Gaining Control ($775)

This six-week coaching package includes six sessions and free email support. This package will offer you a thorough breakdown of your life and its stressors. You will learn how to best gain control of your life’s direction, and not let feelings of being overwhelmed stop you from living the life that you have always deserved!


This package will offer you:

Life Assessment

We will do a thorough breakdown of what is happening in your life, such as- what is the primary source contributing to your stress? Where do you feel most pressured in your life? Getting down to the primary issue is exactly what needs to happen in order to start the process of moving forward.


Solutions-Focused

In order to move forward, you will have to stop the process of feeling overwhelmed. In doing so, you will get back in control of your life. Grasping the ‘why’ from an alternate, more beneficial viewpoint will help you become objective, which is necessary in order for you to progress with your life.


Strength Finder

We will help you to identify your strengths, as knowing them is absolutely crucial to your success! We will set a plan for utilizing those strengths, which will assist you to your advantage.


Taking Care of YOU

A huge setback to our own success is that we tend to run on ‘empty’ and push it even further to where we simply run on fumes. In order to be successful, no matter what the situation, you have to take care of YOU. This session, we will do just that by working out ways to which you can fill your tank back up!


Moving Forward

Together, we will put a plan in place to help you get on track and put a stop to letting the feelings of life’s stressors overwhelm you; thus, halting you from being the best YOU that you are meant to be.


The purpose of this package is to help you feel more in control of your life. You will be able to identify where your stress is coming from, and which strengths that you need to mobilize yourself forward. By taking care of YOU, you won’t fall backward; instead, you will move forward and continue to do so! 

Living the Best Life ($875)

This 12-week coaching package is the best of both packages, as it will offer you crucial knowledge about who you are as a person as well as helping you to gain better control of the direction of your life.


This package includes five in-depth sessions to help you become more in touch with your true, genuine self. You will be able to give yourself the power to press forward and overcome the struggle that can come with being on ‘auto-pilot’ for so long. The power of expectation defines so much of our success in life.


This package comes with free email support and includes:


Personality Assessment

We will discover who you are as a person by addressing what personality traits define you and how you express yourself. Your personality traits are such a big part of who you are, and how you function in life. With this assessment, you will get an in-depth report that is all about you!


Your Personal Values

With this session, we will address what you need in life in order to be the happy, fulfilled person that you have always envisioned yourself to be. Just like your personality, your values are a huge component of what makes you up as a person.


The Power of Expectation

With this session, we will work through how it is that your expectations drive you. Are your expectations working ‘for’ you, or ‘against’ you? Many people struggle moving forward because their expectations cause them to be self-defeating.


They never allow themselves the opportunity to tap into their full potential because they expect that they can’t, which in turn means that they ‘won’t.’ Calling out those self-defeating expectations is an absolute MUST for you to achieve the life that YOU deserve!


Setting Goals

We are going to set goals for you. These goals may be new, or they may be old goals that you have had on the back-burner for far too long. Either way, we will bring them to surface because you are worth it! Your goals are worth investing in whether they be personal, career, educational, health-centered, or pertaining to life, overall. We will figure out which direction you are going and set specific goals.


Rock IT!

Now that we have figured out who you are, we will put it all together to help you implement this into your life. Your life and its direction are great investments that too many people take for granted. By working toward becoming a better ‘you,’ you WILL be a better you! If not now, when?


This package will offer you a truer, deeper sense of yourself that perhaps you have never understood, or have ever known. Your aspirations, motives, and desires will increase your confidence, and help you achieve the success in life that you have been searching for.


It is up to you to put it to work in order to make certain that your days of being on autopilot are far behind you. After this program, you will have the skills that you need to move forward in the direction that you desire and will utilize the expectations needed because with them, you WILL succeed!

The Ultimate Investment ($4,950)

With this package, you will get me (almost) unlimited for a FULL year! This is aimed at people who want to build a long-lasting investment in themselves personally and/or with their career aspirations.


This package may be a good fit for you if you need help with:

• Getting unstuck and moving in the right direction both personally and/or with your career aspirations

• Integrating your personal values into yourself, and/or business

• Helping you to hold yourself accountable because sometimes we do need someone there to help us face our fears with moving forward

• Having someone there who has a wealth of personal and career ideas to help direct you

• Managing stress/work-life balance with creating a better ‘you’ and/or business


A calendar year will give us a chance for us to work together in order to tackle the biggest obstacles you are facing with moving forward. Together, we can also work through any issues that may arise throughout the next year that may be holding you back from reaching your full potential.


This package includes:

• All the essentials featured in the aforementioned packages

• Up to a maximum of 28 sessions over a 12-month period with each session lasting up to 75 minutes

• Unlimited email access

• The ability to call me after-hours (beyond 5:00 PM) if something crops up

As Needed ($175) 


Do you like what the features listed above offer but want something more customized? I do offer ‘as needed’ coaching sessions that are 60-75 minutes in length. Sessions typically include the aforementioned features, but on your timeline and for as long as you need it. If this option is a better fit for you, I do recommend at least six sessions in order for me to best understand you and help you
understand yourself. 

Other Coaching Packages

12 x 30-Minute Life Coaching Sessions ($750)

This coaching package gives me enough time to get to the root of the issue. I will give you the tools you want to make those important and lasting changes in your life.


8 x 30-Minute Life Coaching Sessions ($550)

This package is designed for people who need help in overcoming one or two issues such as gaining clarity, removing the feeling of being “stuck,” and managing and reducing stress. With this package, you will receive free email support for the duration of the coaching sessions.

Reiki Sessions, Holy Fire II Reiki Classes & InfraMat Pro

What Is Reiki

Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a combination of two Japanese words rei and ki, which mean universal life energy. This ancient healing technique uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental, and

spiritual imbalances.


This healing art is an effective delivery system. The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed by the recipient. Reiki's ki-energies flow out of the practitioner's body through the palms of the hands while they are touching the recipient's body.


The Reiki I & II classes will be on February 17 and 18 while the Reiki ART/Master class will be on February 19–21. Both classes will be held at Studio Nine Six 11 located at 630 North Cotner Boulevard, Lincoln, Nebraska 68505.


What to Expect During a Reiki Healing Session

You will be asked to lay down on a massage table that can be best adjusted to your liking. You will be fully clothed except for your shoes. You may also be asked to remove or loosen your belt so that your breathing is not restricted in any way.


It is best to choose loose-fitting garments to wear on the day of your appointment. Wearing natural fabrics is best (i.e. cotton, wool, or linen). You may also be asked to remove any jewelry (i.e. rings, bracelets, or pendants) prior to the session, so consider leaving these items at home, to enhance your overall level of comfort.


What Does a Reiki Session Include

• Sage Spray to Clear the Area of Negative Energies

• Healing Crystals for Balancing Purposes

• Tibetan Singing Bowls for Ambiance/Balancing

• Tuning Forks for Ambiance/Balancing

General Useful Information From Independent Sources

Far-Infrared Rays (FIR)

Far-infrared rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate all layers of the physical human body. People experience infrared waves every day from sunlight, invisible to the human eye. It is part of the sun's spectrum but has nothing to do with ultraviolet light, which can be harmful to your skin and can damage your skin tissues.


Some Benefits of FIR Therapy

  • Far-infrared heat is natural and penetrates deeper than standard heat
  • Penetrates 2-3 inches under your skin for better blood circulation
  • Helps relieve pain and fights against infection or disease
  • Reduces tension and stress
  • Helps remove toxins, trapped fat, waste, and cellulites as well as burns calories
  • Helps to improve immune system
  • Helps to improve flexibility
  • Helps in fat loss, chronic fatigue, water retention, skin disorders
  • Helps lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels


FIR is able to penetrate into the innermost regions of the tissues, muscles, and bones. When temperature increases even slightly, it can enhance our bodily functions on multiple levels. FIR therapy may help in the elimination of heavy metals, poisons, and carcinogenic material from our bodies.


An hour of FIR therapy can burn up to 900 calories, showing real results in breaking down trapped fat, waste, cellulite, and other forms of toxic substances. The radiant far-infrared heating system has been researched by the FDA and has been proven to improve overall health, increase oxygen in the blood, rapid healing of injuries and increase the feeling of well-being.

Negative Ions

Our heating pads feature negative ions that are unscented, odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance every day in certain natural environments; just imagine mountains, springs, waterfalls, oceans, and beaches.


Once they reach the cells in your bloodstream, negative ion therapy is believed to produce effective biochemical reactions, helping to relieve your daily stress, alleviating your mood and depression, boosting your daytime energy, efficiency, immune system, and increasing your defense against infection or diseases.

Some Benefits of Negative Ion Therapy

  • Speeding up the recovery from physical exhaustion
  • Stabilizing the brain functions to promote relaxation and calmness
  • Helping to relieve stress and alleviating your spirits and mood
  • Purifying the blood by increasing the calcium and sodium levels in the bloodstream
  • Restoring a healthy balance to the blood
  • Strengthening the immune system by promoting production of globulins in the blood

  • Balancing the autonomic nervous system to promote good sleep and boost metabolism
  • Promoting better digestion by helping ease tension in the stomach and intestines
  • Rejuvenating the cells
  • Enhancing the vitality of muscle tissue
  • Strengthening internal organs
  • Revitalizing all of the body's systems and cells
  • Neutralizing free radicals

Negative ions are present in the air that we breathe as well as inside our bodies. They also protect the body and mind from the harmful effects of environmental stressors, such as dangerous electromagnetic fields (i.e. TV, cell phones, and home appliances).


Additionally, negative ions can increase the levels of serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin is known as the “happy mood feeling” hormone. Low serotonin levels bring symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, apathy, fear, insomnia, and fatigue. Melatonin acts as a synchronizer of our biological clocks, thus helping us to sleep better, and may also exert a strong antioxidant activity.

Jade Stones

Because of its special and unique composition, jade is the most efficient natural heat absorber of all the semi-precious stones. 

Some Benefits of Jade
