Guidance to Help You Feel Empowered
Using a blend of the seen and unseen, the scientific and the spiritual, the practical with the mystical, to help you come home to yourself.
I am a certified integrative nutrition holistic health coach, intersectional feminist, podcast host, animal lover, and a work-in-progress! I started this business out of a deep, soul desire to help womxn connect to their intuition, find creative solutions, connect to their purpose, find freedom and ease in their everyday lives, and to serve my community!
I am a certified coach via the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN), I hold a Bachelors of Science in Psychology with a concentration in alcohol and drug addiction counseling, and I am Health At Every Size (HAES) Aligned.
Begin the Journey Home to Yourself
Through my work with clients (and in my personal work with myself), what I see time and time again is a lack of connection to the mind, body, and spirit. So often we live in our head space, feeling consumed by overthinking, perfectionism, and anxiety. We think that we can think ourselves out of this anxiety, but it only leads to more suffering. We reach for things like social media, products, and diets to try and bridge that gap between our overthinking, crowded minds, and our inner knowing.
During our time together, I will provide a space and prompts for you to begin the journey back home to yourself: back home to your body, back home to your emotions, back home to your true and wild self.
My job as a coach is not to show you the map home, but to hold space through compassion, somatic exercises, prompts, meditation, and reflection to help you find your own map.
Listen to the Empowered Spirituality Podcast
Empowering meditations, information, and interviews meant to help you harness your personal power, listen to your intuition, and connect to the higher power of your choosing.
1:1 Holistic Health Coaching
Through my work, I blend my practical knowledge and experience in mental health and addiction counseling, assessments, and health coaching, with spirituality, ritual, embodiment, and going within. I am not a healer, but rather, I am the catalyst that will help you ground and access your innate wisdom as we embark on your healing journey together.
Sliding scale and payment plans are available!
Guided Breath & Visualization Healing Sessions
Through breathing techniques, guided meditation and visualization, and somatic exercises, we will meet on Zoom for 70 minutes to deepen the connection between the mind, body, heart, and spirit. This session is a great fit for anyone who wants to heal at the subconscious, spiritual, and somatic level and wants a safe container to do so.
Empowered Authenticity Community
In this community, we celebrate our own authenticity and the authenticity of others! This is a place to explore who we are, who we have been, and how we want to take up space in the world. So much of our lives are spent hiding our true selves, trying to fit in, abandoning ourselves, thinking our desires are wrong, and so on. In this space, we celebrate the unlearning of these things and embrace the process of coming back home to ourselves.
This is a space for women and non-binary folks to gather in community and authenticity. With your membership, you will gain access to a new weekly guided meditation, a Discord support space, and monthly live gatherings - with replays!!

Available on all your favorite listening platforms, the Empowered Spirituality Podcast is a free offering made from my heart to you. Tune in to hear from amazing guests, my musings, health tips, and guided meditations!
What Motivates Me, Grounds Me, & Informs Me
When I say abundance, I mean that there is an abundance of space for many emotions, an abundance of time to work through decisions, and an abundance of options when working towards health.
So much of my work in coming home to myself centers in my intuition, my knowing, my body's wisdom, my gut. And my friend, so much of your journey will involve your intuition too. I want to help you access and honor your intuition. Most importantly, you are sovereign when it comes to your journey. I am a space holder and co-creator with you, you are the one with the knowledge here.
I promise to show up as my most true version of myself and encourage you to do the same. I will do my best to hold a space that allows you to come as you are, be exactly who you are. You are inherently worthy just as you are. No matter the moods, desires, emotions, struggles, and energy you come with, you are worthy and whole.
There is a very apparent pay barrier when it comes to wellness. This is why I vow to always offer various services that are low cost or free. Additionally, every paid service has a sliding scale and payment plan option. If your financial situation prevents your access to my services, please contact me and we will discuss.
We all deserve rest, and so do you, my friend. Rest can feel complicated and challenging, especially considering the society of capitalism, hustle culture, and #girlboss glorification. Restorative rest is very important to me, and I want to hold space to encourage and facilitate you to rest as well.
In today's world, we have access to so many people, and we are also more alone than ever. Community continues to be deeply valuable to me. There are many free and low-cost ways here to join in community.

The Anti-Racist Small Business Pledge
Commit to open-conflict and allow discomfort.
I welcome and embrace all feedback on my content, 1:1 work, and in spaces I hold and take up space in. I intend to do no harm, and also know that intent and impact are not always the same.
Invest a portion of your monthly company budget to the Black community, and engage in continuous anti-racist education.
I have donated monthly to The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness as well as seek to support black authors and black owned businesses when possible.
Express your sincere, long-term commitment to becoming an anti-racist organization.
There is a serious financial barrier in the wellness industry, and this barrier largely impacts women and non-binary folks of color. The systems within structural racism mean that health coaching and other services are not equally accessible to everyone. I vow to do my best to offer offerings at various pay levels, as well as offering sliding scale and payment plan options for all options, prioritizing black, indigenous, women of color and transgender women.
“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”

Hear From the Community!
Sam not only is incredibly respectful of personal boundaries and well-versed in how to lead meditations in a profound and comfortable way, but she also had a wonderful ability to understand exactly what I was trying to communicate despite how much I rambled during our sessions! She asked thoughtful and respectful questions that encouraged me to confront things I had not considered before and view situations in helpfully different lights. Lastly, Sam is so validating! She acknowledges all emotions and thought processes as not only valid but normal and deserving of attention, compassion, and vulnerability. I cannot recommend a consultation session enough!
