Jennifer Bruce

Jennifer’s journey through 18 years of acute addiction and over eight years of recovery has provided her with the insight, compassion, and experience needed to understand what it takes to overcome the impossible. Jennifer considers her addiction experience to be the greatest gift of her life, as it is because of her addiction, her life is so rich and meaningful. Her greatest joy is to help others experience this freedom.

Jennifer uses a ‘three-legged stool’ approach where psycho-social, spiritual, and biochemical healing are addressed to create a strong foundation for long-term success. When all three legs are in place, it is easy to sit and difficult to tip over. When you remove one or two of the ‘legs,’ it makes for a shakier experience and requires great effort to stay upright. Jennifer dives deeply into therapeutic nutrition and lifestyle medicine to heal the body and free the mind. Each recovery journey is client-driven and is as unique as their fingerprint. Jennifer enjoys the freedom coaching allows addressing each individual’s unique requirements to heal, rather than meeting industry-driven ideals. Over the years, through one-on-one and group settings, Jennifer has had the opportunity to serve hundreds of people whose lives have been affected by addiction and other traumatic experiences. Jennifer is a mother of one young daughter and lives on the redwood coast of Northern California. She enjoys yoga, music, cooking, working, learning, and international adventures in faraway lands.

Anne Frank

Spiritually guided to take the deep dive into transformational work, Anne transformed and healed early-life trauma. In addition to childhood sexual abuse, emotional neglect, school/home bullying, guilt, and shame programming, she deeply understood the dynamics of a 20-year eating disorder, which she overcame at 35. Transformational Coaching is for those interested in aligning with their highest vision of who they are. By exploring our inner landscape and shadows, transformational self-alignment practices, and integration of life’s most challenging lessons, we learn to lighten our load and breathe purpose and meaning into our daily experiences. Many tools, including entheogenic substances such as ibogaine, point us in the direction of our authentic self, heart, and mind, but WE are the TRUE medicine we are searching for to create healing and balance in our lives. Transformational Coaching is centered on practices and strategies to initiate inner dialogue, create positive life change, and maintain life balance to enable clients to become the greatest version of themselves.

Noah Howell

"Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It's the complete eradication of everything we IMAGINED to be true." -Adyashanti- 

Noah’s commitment as a coach is to deeply support your journey wherever you are, on the road to recovery, self-discovery, healing, and the awakening process. Noah offers a safe space free of judgment to allow whatever aspects and inner parts of the self that have been ignored and neglected to come to light and receive love and compassion they have yet to experience. The path he has taken has brought him to some simple and powerful tools for inner work and exploration. Noah works with clients using tools to investigate beliefs, find deeper truths, and realize through the stories we tell that we are co-creators in this amazing universe. With "parts work" and somatic exercises, there is an opportunity to look inward, find where we've been storing our hurt, and see the ways we've protected and isolated ourselves, allowing the release of old patterns that no longer serve. Noah’s overall mission as a coach is to guide you to find your path, discover your gifts, remember who you truly are on the deepest level, and show up for yourself and others in loving new ways as the beautiful whole human you are.

Tyler Fink

Tyler battled his way through a ten-year opiate addiction before reconnecting with his true self and facing his shadow. Through his transformation process, Tyler found solace and reinforcement through surfing, yoga, meditation, and alternative spiritual modalities to reconstruct his perspective on life. Through his 10-year struggle with IV heroin use, he realized everyone experiences some kind of trauma. Everyone has experienced pain in one form or the other. Our context and perspective on the struggle can empower us to use our hardships not as a negative but as a positive component to move forward. We can be a powerful influence on ourselves and the people around us.

Tyler has a deep passion for psychology and our individual perspectives on life. He graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. Tyler also spent a couple of years working with two different ibogaine centers facilitating preparation and integration through Ibogaine treatment for addiction and PTSD. In addition, he has worked with many families around the fears and apprehensions of sending their loved ones to partake in such a powerful treatment for addiction and personal growth.

Tisana Scanlan

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it” Rumi – 13th Century Persian poet and Sufi mystic.

 

As a certified Being True To You coach and guide, Tisana reflects, motivates and empowers you to be the best that you can be in this moment. She will mirror back to you with honesty, kindness, and compassion. She has found baby steps and achievable goals to be key components to building a foundation of self-worth and a true sense of self – to reach a new level of consciousness and awareness, live life fully, create authentic relationships, and feel comfortable in your own skin. Imagine a life of joy, laughter, healthy relationships, a focused mind, an open heart full of gratitude, and a sense that there is a place for you in this world – that your voice and feelings matter! This can be your reality. 

Few enter sobriety gracefully, so having an ally and a coach on your team can make a world of difference. Tisana’s recovery from 25 years of alcohol and drug abuse has consisted of many modalities, including yoga, AA & The 12 Steps, psychedelic assisted therapy and much more.
