Certified Soul-Centered Coach

Hi!  I am a former professor and minister.  I have graduate degrees in theology and psychology and a PhD in education and educational psychology. I have completed my certification in Soul Centered Coaching Psychology. I am married, have 2 sons and 3 grandkids. I have a Maine Coon cat named Baxter who really runs things around here. 

Please explore my website for my practice. I work on a donation basis ($0-???).  Honor system with no questions asked.  Pay is electronic. I don’t know who pays and who doesn’t.  All donations go to a feeding program. I am a Secular Episcopalian Franciscan, but I don’t push any religious perspective. I have my share of doubts about things, but, like all of us, I am working through them. I am flexible about times but prefer mornings and afternoons. 

My special emphasis is working with those experiencing spiritual confusion, recovering from fundamentalism, and those who have experienced (or are experiencing) religious abuse. I’ve been there. I do a lot of listening, visualizing, and any talking clients want. My emphasis is interfaith—i.e., not confined to Christians. 

My influences are Jungian psychology, Psychosynthesis, and mysticism. I will help you help yourself because I genuinely care about my clients. I am accredited by IACTM and CMA. I work on Zoom, FaceTime, or over the phone.

Ideal Client: My ideal client needs spiritual guidance. S/he is open, honest, and willing to consider change.  Also, they may be persons experiencing financial need.

Lauren Milo May - Soul-Centered Coach Candidate
Lauren Milo May
Soul-Centered Coach Candidate

I am a Soul-Centered Somatic Practitioner here to guide you into the depths of your soul through your body, to discover the hidden messages, meaning, guidance and magic that lies within. I hold a sacred and safe space grounded in ritual and Somatic & Depth Psychology methods. Through the alchemical symbols, memories, and emotions that arise from within your body, you will begin to unwind from old beliefs, stories, self sabotage, and limiting patterns that no longer serve you. You will learn how to hold and love your inner child and soul essence from a place of embodied safety and deeper intimacy. Through your body, you will embark on a journey of self discovery that will liberate your soul and unveil magic, gifts, adventure, surprises, and bliss.

During my homecoming journey, I unveiled my gifts of intimacy, presence, and the magic that unfolds when we consciously and intentionally live our lives through connection to spirit through ritual, body and soul. Some of my many areas of speciality include embodiment, self compassion, boundaries & consent, learning to receive, surrender, and transmuting shadow.

Within this safe and compassionate container, you will experience the magic and intimacy that are revealed to you when you journey within, held by spirit and guided by soul. This is a slow, gentle process where you will be met right where you are in a way that is aligned with your nervous system. There is no rush and no hurry. The slower you go, the safer the nervous system feels to expand into your soul essence, power and wholeness.

“If we can expand our capacity, or the banks of our river, and begin to move more easily between red [uncomfortable feelings] and blue [pleasurable feelings], eventually the pendulations get wider and wider so that we can be with the full range of our emotions and experience, all the while feeling a baseline of safety. Instead of the full range of emotions feeling overwhelming, it feels like wholeness, and we know how to move with it.”

—Kimberley Ann Johnson

I am based in Santa Cruz, CA, and offer sessions over zoom.

Lisa Avnet, Certified Soul-Centered Coach
Lisa Avnet
Certified Soul-Centered Coach

From an early age, I’ve been drawn to the healing power of nature, dreams, and the energies that surround us. This affinity led me on a personal journey of transformation that culminated in a soul-aligned career as an energy healer and coach. For over three decades, I’ve had the privilege of guiding women on their own profound journeys of self-discovery and healing. 

My approach is rooted in compassion, insight, and an unshakable belief in your inner wisdom.  My Soul Centered coaching work integrates depth coaching techniques with my expertise in energetic techniques, shamanic practices, nature based soulwork, embodied experiential dreamwork,  hypnotherapy, and depth psychology.  I’ll assist you in moving through layers of conditioning to reconnect with your essence. Together, we’ll nurture your spirit, realign your energy, transform limiting beliefs, and actualize your highest potential. 

Beyond my private coaching practice, I’ve been blessed to share my offerings with an extended community. Since 2019, I’ve been a member of the healing team at Canyon Ranch Lenox, celebrated as the #2 Destination Spa in the U.S.  My classes have assisted many seeking help in navigating the chaos of modern life. 

This is sacred work that I undertake with humility and care. If you feel called to reclaim your inner light and step into your full power, I’m here to accompany you on a multi-dimensional voyage of healing and self-discovery.  With patience and presence, we’ll unravel old patterns, ignite your inner healer, and help you trust the inner wisdom that’s been within you all along.

I also offer individual sessions as well as 3, 6 and 12 month packages to support integration.

Ideal Client: Anyone who seeks deeper connection with their authentic self  and with others.
