Healing and coaching to one’s full potential
How did your business start?
I’ve had a lifelong interest in healing, both for myself and for others. In 1990, I received a master’s degree in counseling and opened a private psychotherapy practice. The business has naturally evolved into what it is today, fed by intensive training in bio-energetics, neuro-linguistics, embodied spirituality and indigenous wisdom. These experiences deepened my knowledge of how to help people free themselves from the mind/body/spirit effects of childhood wounding and trauma, and step into their birthright as authentic, joyous, loving human beings creating beautiful, empowered lives. In March 2012, I rebranded my business as The Wholeness Project.
What do you sell?
Healing. Wholeness. Thriving. The Wholeness Project offers individual healing and mentoring (in person and by phone), group mentoring, and occasional seminars in radical grounding and core transformation, with other trainings in development.
What positive lessons did you learn during the recession?
Do what you love and don’t let go of what works. When I started The Wholeness Project, I temporarily let go of helping people with their deep personal healing. But I missed it and realized how vital it is to the mission and vision of The Wholeness Project.
Jeladdin Rumi, a 13th century Persian poet, advises us to “Let the beauty you love be what you do.” I love the poignant beauty of the human spirit on its journey of healing and evolving.
What strategy do you use to hire good people?
I’m a sole proprietor. But when I collaborate with others I seek two things: resonance (so we work well together) and complementarity (so that we play to each other’s strengths and generate ideas that have never before been seen.)
What is your strategy for growth in the next year?
Keep the dream alive, take one step at a time, create great relationships with people, and let what I do come from a place of love.
What is the best thing about running a business here?
Oh, this valley is amazing. I love the small community energy. The natural resources and beauty are astounding, and there’s something truly magical about living and working near these mountains and rivers.

We’ve briefly watched the savings and loan (thrift) segment of the U.S. banking business implode. It didn’t take long: The dominoes began teetering in 1987, and it was all over by 1990. A major segment…
