What Devon's Clients Are Saying...


In the past, I tried not drinking during the week, but quite often, I would make an excuse to open a bottle of wine, and once the bottle was open, I had to finish it over the next few days because I didn’t want to waste it! Trying to have a break during the week wasn’t providing me with the tools to cope with stress or cravings.
Devon is a smart, encouraging, compassionate, knowledgeable, and creative coach. She can support you through your journey of quitting alcohol by giving you actionable steps and tools to get you through the tough moments when all you want to do is grab a drink. Devon listens to what works for you and builds a sustainable plan. She has deep knowledge and supports the body as a whole. After working with Devon, I feel empowered and relieved.

Immediately after my first session with Devon, where we established some goals: drink enough water, make a doctor's appointment, exercise more, and drink less alcohol, I felt empowered. Devon recommended an excellent doctor and held me accountable for scheduling the appointment - a life-changing experience. With Devon’s support, I am on track with health issues and making tremendous progress. Devon was a catalyst for me to investigate my health and take action to improve my health. Devon provides open dialog, goal creation, and accountability. She is comfortable to talk and interact with. I'm continuing with her as I continue my efforts.e.

The biggest surprise was that this type of coaching was something I didn't think I needed. Working with a health coach was a way to focus on quality-of-life strategies for which I didn't have someone to help me with. Working with Devon was a pleasure; very refreshing and reinvigorating.

Devon is intuitive, compassionate, insightful, and a fantastic listener. She was supportive and encouraging throughout the entire process. Her warmth and kindness exuded over the computer screen, and it felt like I had someone in my corner rooting for me to find more balance in my life.
