Message to clients

Start on the inside and work your way out ... Ani DiFranco

Suffering is a signal that something needs to change . Making the decision to become sovereign over your own body, the relationships you attract, livelihood, holistic health, etc. is one of the most empowering things you can do and I honor you in taking the first step by reaching out for support to move toward and through these challenges !

I'm Dr. Nicole Coffelt . It is my honor and privilege to guide individuals and couples toward deeper connection, authenticity and fulfillment . After practicing in San Francisco for 14 years, I relocated to Southern California a few years ago . I'm currently full (in person) but continue to offer remote sessions via Zoom two days / week so ... if you are a resident and/or based in California (or New York .... ) and wish to find warm, deeply attuned support that synthesizes ancient shamanic wisdom with modern science ... please do reach out !

I would love to answer any questions you have and discuss the possibility of working together . Let's connect .
