Wellbeing & Relationship Coach

Together we can discover how to make your life and relationships shine

Hi, I’m Robyn! Discovering coaching has been a culmination of years of life experience and self development growth searching for the best approaches to help myself and others. Coaching allows me to use my creativity, intuition and compassion to help you thrive!

My Story

I integrate Engagement Life Coaching and Nonviolent Communication (NVC) with nature-based experiences, mindfulness, movement, humor, and creativity into my coaching and training.

I graduated from an award-winning coach training program at Anne Arundel Community College-an ICF certified program. My body of work & study includes massage therapist, childcare Director/Teacher, nonprofit management, and oodles of personal and professional development training including–Positive Intelligence, Nonviolent Communication, Mind-body medicine, Myers Brigg, Re-evaluation Counseling, Emotional Freedom Technique, and dance/movement.

In my years as an entrepreneur, educator, and program coordinator, I have worked with a range of ages—from infants to adults, facilitating learning experiences that offer opportunities for growth, connection, and fun. I love guiding people to discover their passion and curiosity, care for the world around them, and find a sense of empowerment and self-worth.

I weave my values of care for others, compassionate communication, healthy living, honest expression, playful connections, and creativity into my training and coaching.

a little more about me……

As a massage therapist for 12 years and trading massage regularly, I am now addicted to all things touch. The bodywork modalities included Swedish, deep tissue, rolfing, myofascial, shiatsu/acupressure, Trager, zero balancing, cranial sacral, chakra balancing, acupuncture, reiki, energy work, Somatic Experiencing, reflexology, Somatics, alexander technique, and Feldenkrais. There is nothing like another’s hands to guide your body and nervous system to more peace and ease.

Massage and touch is a metaphor for our relationships—the way we give and receive, patterns of holding on, allowing & letting go, experiencing quiet and softness, becoming aware of patterns, and experiencing ourselves as whole and accepted. If you decide to do Couples coaching, I can certainly share some tricks from my Couples massage curriculum.

Some interesting things about me

I founded Pet Tag Creations

Soon after I got Logan-he needed a cool pet tag so I set about creating a whole business around it. The colorful pet tags are crafted with polymer clay (www.pettagcreations.com) and we (Logan and I) displayed them at 75+ events a year including craft fairs, street fests, farmers markets and dog shows. I enjoyed meeting tons of folks and their dogs, including other crafters, and at times remember coaching people instead of selling my wares!

350+ jobs and consultant positions of varying shapes and sizes were part of my journey.

 I now refer to it as my body of work and research laboratory. It’s expanded my understanding of an enormous range of fields and experiences. Being a multipotentialite means I get excited about things and once the novelty wears off, I’m ready for the next adventure. Coaching has so many nuances and variety that I’m convinced I’ll never tire of it. 

Dance moves me!

My journey of loving movement started when I was 7 with ballet classes and continued through college with classes in modern and jazz. After college, there was dance class weekly with African, modern, and contact improvisation. Did I mention, dance moves me? Plus, then I have an excuse for my inability to sit still for long.

I’m an avid vegetable gardener with a few flowers thrown in.

I won 1st prize for 2 years in a row in Hampden’s Community Garden for artistry and production and was a gardening educator for Maryland Cooperative Extension to help communities grow food.

My dogs are the center of my world.

Bailey was my first dog love for 12 ½ years, now there’s Logan and Kali, 13 and 11 months. Logan is well travelled– florida 4 times by road trip including our wedding on Barefoot Beach (he dug sand the whole time and covered our stuff during the small ceremony), Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri for the 2017 solar eclipse, Chicago, Delaware beaches, Atlanta, Asheville, NC, SC camping and hundreds of local trails and hikes. Kali’s on her way….. Being able to experience the world through the eyes of dogs is incredible with their pure heart and love of adventure.

I love kids and animals (besides dogs) and go out of my way to see horses often.

Since not having my own kids, I love having friend’s kids in my life and enjoy any outing or adventure that includes them. My inner child is happiest then and my inner adult can stay out of the way.

I taught 100’s of parents how to massage their babies as a certified infant massage instructor.

Watching the impact of parents bonding with their babies and getting them started on loving touch is the loveliest reward. 

I love learning about the brain and neuroscience

I get to see the impact coaching has for people to experience things from a different perspective and the changes that can occur from the many insights and new paths discovered. It’s fascinating to know that we can continue changing our brain’s neuroplasticity into old age.
