Dove has been on her own path of Self-care since before she can even remember. As a child her mother would encourage her to look within and find the lesson when life ‘happened’ around her; and to her. She has worked with psychotherapists, healers, shamans, wholistic practitioners, yogis, and the like, from a very young age. This was simply the atmosphere in which she was raised; and she is very grateful for this foundation of wisdom that she has sprouted from. Along the way she has deepened her expertise in numerous modalities in order to help individuals live an honest, conscious, healthy, mindful and peaceful life. Her passion for sharing her tools and helping others runs deep; it’s in her DNA. Not only were the seeds planted quite early on in her childhood but she also grew up in the presence of her mother’s work as a healer, a body worker and a constant student of life’s teachings.
Dove stepped into the world of health and wellness, via the fitness lane, back in 1985. She has since expanded way beyond the role of fitness and nutritional expert, teacher and trainer. Although she has a deep connection to that aspect of her work and will always continue to offer her signature classes and private training sessions, she has found it necessary to provide this other layer of Self-care that goes beyond the flesh. She is now called upon for her work as a life and health coach to cut through the negative patterning, old habits, addictions, fears, and stagnant energy. Because of her wide net of expertise she is able to help her clients quickly clear the static, move through obstacles, and create new neural pathways, rituals based in self-care, and experience freedom from past traumas and suffering.
With the loss of her mother to suicide back in 2011, Dove chose to cope with her grief and trauma by strengthening her connection to her path of Self-study, Self-care and deep healing. She also experienced early onset menopause at the age of 41 due to the trauma of this great loss. The physiological and emotional shift that she went through brought many new challenges, deep lessons and wisdom. It provided, yet again, a beautiful opportunity to learn by true personal experience. In that learning came a deep and pure connection to understanding other’s suffering and empowering her to be of service in new ways. Most recently, with her husband’s first colonoscopy showing cancer cells in a polyp, she dove into the deep end once again. This time into the world of vegan nutrition, cancer prevention, care and deepening her wisdom of this physical journey we are on; and why we are here in the first place.
Dove is always connected to her studies; in dharma, psychology, yoga, energy clearing, Voice Dialogue, anatomy, the nervous system, hormone balancing, the brain, as well as her own intimate introspection of the meaning of life and what her true purpose is. By surrounding herself with many mindful practitioners along the way, she has found herself now in a place of understanding and a deep resonance with the wisdom and knowingness to help others. Her abilities and confidence comes from a place of personal experience, embodying these life issues herself, compassion and over three decades of working intimately with thousands of clients.
In coping with her own grief and the trauma that she endured with the loss of her mother, she has blossomed into a true healer and guide for her client’s to receive so much empowerment from as they walk upon their path of Self-care. Her sessions allow her clients to cultivate deep understanding, awareness, radical honesty and acceptance as they learn the tools that are necessary to truly be at peace. She is honored to work with client’s on such an intimate level and is grateful for the opportunity to share her wisdom, assistance and support.
Dove is quite passionate about this offering she shares with her clients. By gaining clarity in this one specific area of her work, she has managed to radically change her own life. (One of the perks of being who she is. She gets to practice it all on herself first!) She already lives an organic, active, healthy, and positive life but there were still some areas of distress and some threads of PTSD from the loss of her mother that she wished to be healed of, and free from.
Dove dedicates her life to her own well being and encourages others to do the same. One way she lives this is to be with their breath; mindfully, consistently and profoundly. Throughout her career, she has offered many tools to support her clients on their wellness path. The world of pranayam/breathing techniques is one of many and is quite vast; and can even be a bit overwhelming for some. With her research, Dove has simplified this work for you, so that you can easily learn the technique/s that most suit your needs, and begin to feel the benefits; instantaneously.
Some of these benefits are: stress reduction, better sleep, enhanced creativity, focus, increased libido, mental clarity, boost immune system, increase willpower, increase energy, relieve some symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and much more. It has been scientifically proven that we are, in fact, in control of our ‘auto’nomic nervous system. This being said, we can develop a mastery over our nervous, immune and cardiovascular systems and help ourselves be happier, stronger and healthier. If you would like to begin your journey towards a deeper sense of joy and energy in your life, a calmer existence, and a body free from suffering, you will arrive there via the breath.
In her words, this is what she noticed since incorporating a daily practice of breathing therapy:
‘I thought I was doing pretty well for myself, considering my lifestyle. WOW! I had no idea what was possible until I tapped into a deeper understanding of breath work. By simply committing myself to a daily practice of a specific type of breath, I was able to live in a whole new body, mind and even spirit. This isn’t a meditating, or even a working out, type of breathing. This is so simple and so basic, yet definitely something to study the nuances of. So, I did and I am so glad I did! I have more energy, more clarity, patience, desire to be connected to my community and a zest for life like I have never had before. My mind feels sharper, more intelligent, my memory has improved, my vision, my digestion, sleep, and personal motivation, commitment and desire to learn. I have created new habits, disciplines, taken on more responsibility, my business has grown, I have attracted new, like-minded individuals into my life, colors are brighter, life is richer. My PTSD has softened, almost completely, my nerve endings feel protected and smooth, when they once felt raw and jagged. My relationship with my husband has improved; we are happier, more joyful together and things roll off my back more easily. My hormones feel balanced, where I used to be more moody, reactive and sensitive. I could go on, and on. All I have changed was this breath work. It is truly the best thing I have ever done for myself. A body that is oxygenated is a body that is alive!’~Dove
Wholistic Couples Counseling
Dove and her beautiful husband have been blessed to have found each other on this life journey. They met when Dove was a teenager, at the wee age of 16. Their lives went in separate directions and the Universe brought them back together in 2005 at a neighborhood cafe. Since then it has been a magical dance of loving and all the stuff that comes with that. If you have ever been in relationship with another human than you know what is in store for you when you become an ‘us’. It is hard work but often the most expansive, and transformational, work one can do on this planet. Their road was not easy and they both had to dig deep to learn the practices that would carry them through; luckily they did just that. Because of their path being extra rich with opportunities for growth around every corner, they have a deep bond and commitment to constantly remaining a student of life and staying present with each other, and for each other. This requires great respect for one another, spaciousness to allow the other the room to have their own experiences, patience, a lot of laughter, light-heartedness, radical love and kindness. With Dove’s vast background in physical, emotional, energetic and metaphysical studies she has truly honed her skills so that she may be of service to all; in all stages of life and in all forms of relationships; intimate, platonic, and professional. Being in relationship with her husband now for over 17 years, she feels extremely confidant in sharing her pearls of wisdom with all in need of some extra guidance. She welcomes the opportunity to hold space for you, and your loved ones, in any way she can so that you may find the well of knowledge that resides within you. Please reach out for support…you are not alone on this path.
Voice Dialogue Facilitation
Dove has been practicing Voice Dialogue since 1986 when she began working with her teacher, Tamar Stone, allowing her to be a student of the true lineage from Hal Stone Ph. D. and Sidra Stone Ph. D.; the founders of Voice Dialogue. She has continued her studies along the way to deepen her own personal awareness of this transformational tool. Dove is a certified Voice Dialogue Facilitator and is thrilled to provide this, as yet another way to help her client’s live a mindful life; free of suffering and filled with harmony. Voice Dialogue helps us become aware of, and to experience, the various Selves, sub-personalities, that run our lives and to learn how to use them in a conscious way through the development of the Aware Ego Process. This tool is one of many Dove threads into her Wholistic Life Coaching sessions.
Grief & Loss Support
Dove chose to dive even deeper into the vast pool of healing and wisdom teachings after her mother’s suicide in 2011. She has a deep compassion for those suffering from traumatic events, but especially the loss of a loved one to suicide. Her intimate knowledge of the trauma and impact this specific loss brings to one’s life has allowed her to provide support for others in need. She feels it is important to create a village of support when coping with this delicate time and is here to provide her client’s the tools they need to stand with them on their journey as they heal from this tragedy. Dove offers an array of sessions for those who would like to focus on healing their nervous system, working through trauma and PTSD with yoga and cocoon therapy, Voice Dialogue, meditation and energy clearing. She also believes living an active and healthy lifestyle is important to stay rooted in the body and this physical experience we are having here on earth. Her customized workouts and organic nutritional support are integral in living a mindful, conscious, and healthy life. Wherever one is on their healing journey, Dove will offer the support needed to feel safe, empowered, and well.
Dove has found that there are times in one’s life where we need a little extra help. Even though we do all the inner and outer work necessary to live a healthy life, we find there are still imbalances and energetic blocks that keep us from thriving and enjoying peace. This is when energy clearing can be quite helpful and can provide a radical shift in one’s life. Often clients need only a few sessions to remove what is keeping them from living a balanced life, free from suffering and disharmony. Many of our energetic threads of not visible to us as we are deeply entrenched in the unconscious patterning and living them out; day in, and day out. It is beneficial for us all to have an Energy Clearing sessions to unplug from toxic people/energy fields, to fine tune our own personal vibration, to have someone check things out for us to see what needs clearing and to live from a clean, healthy, vibrant place.
House Clearing/KonMari Tidying
Dove threads the KonMari method of tidying into every aspect of her life. She finds great joy in living this way and spreading this joy to all those who embrace this offering. Dove will come to your home and assist you in purifying your space so that you live a life filled with peace and harmony, joy and balance; not clutter. She will support you as you find what sparks joy in your life and declutter your space. You will find this quite healing and empowering in many ways. How we care for our bodies, our minds, our souls, is also reflected in how we care for our personal space; our home, our car, our belongings. Be wholistically well; live in harmony in every aspect of your life. Imagine that. Create that.
Organic Nutritional Counseling
Specializing in Paleo, Plant Based, Vegetarian, Intuitive, Flexitarian and Vegan Lifestyle
With the support of her community of like-minded individuals, wholistic doctors and her vegan gastroenterologist, Dove has found herself, once again, living her studies. Dove was raised an organic vegetarian and she has always led an organic, mindful approach towards food and considered herself a flexatarian most of her life. After her husband was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2017, she made the commitment to be vegan; along with her beloved husband. After a year, Dove and her husband, began to invite in some animal by products and softened from vegan to vegetarian, to pescatarian with an emphasis on plant based. Becoming a vegetarian is one thing, becoming a vegetarian because your husband has a brush with cancer is a crash course in vegetarianism/veganism. Overnight she was able to implement life changes that radically affected the health of her family and deepened her personal awareness, which led her to be able to share her knowledge, and guidance, with her clients. Don’t wait for cancer, or any other illness, or dis-ease, to touch your life, to make nutrition a priority. Be your best Self every day by paying attention to what you put in, and on, your body. What are you feeding your Self?

“Breathing in, I calm my body.~Thich That Hahn
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment.”

Remote Yoga Nidra Class
“Yoga nidra is the yoga of aware sleep. In this lies the secret of self healing. Yoga Nidra is a pratyahara technique in which the distractions of the mind are contained and the mind is relaxed.”~Satyananda Saraswati
A single hour of Yoga Nidra is as restful as four hours of sleep. Yoga Nidra is also known as “yogic sleep” or expanded awareness in deep-relaxation. Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness that can be achieved through particular relaxation techniques, visualizations, and body-awareness meditations. The experience is similar to an extended sivasana, as the entire practice is done laying down with the eyes closed.
All you will need for the Yoga Nidra class is a comfortable place to lie down with the support of a folded blanket or bolster under your head and knees. It is nice to cover yourself with a blanket for this practice if you wish. You may also use an eye pillow to deepen the experience. This class is also available privately or for you and a group of your loved ones. Please contact Dove to schedule.
Once payment is received, your reservation is confirmed and you will receive an email with the necessary information to join the call. You simply call in at the class time and enjoy the remote class. All calls are live calls and not pre-recorded.
We are living in a time where we all need to be anchored to our bodies and what better way to step into this practice than to do so with Dove as your guide in the comfort of our own home without any obstacles in your way.
Join Dove as she embarks upon this new medium to offer you these beautiful practices.
