READY for change
"Until you make the unconcious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate."
- Carl Jung
REAL TALK BRINGS REAL CHANGE
My practice is different from traditional coaching.
I will guide you through taking a hard, honest look at yourself and the life you are living. What do you believe? What's under that belief? What is standing between you and your goals? What can you do now to move forward? People come to me when they realize they do not have to do the hard parts alone.
We often run from the truth. We ignore the little voices telling us we can have and deserve more. We settle into the comfort and convenience of the status quo...until we don't. Until it is painfully apparent that the status quo is keeping us from a life we truly want to live, from our soul's purpose
I work with clients facing hard patches. Often we already have an idea of what needs to get done, but do not know how to do it. We often need a guide, an advocate, someone who thinks outside of the box, a motivator, or maybe even a little tough love to overcome a particular challenge.
Digging into the shadow this way is not for the faint of heart. I work with brave, committed individuals who want to break through their blocks and create a new aligned way of living.
We begin by identifying the discomfort and how it shows up in your life. We agree on what needs to change and we develop a plan of action together. After that, I help make sure it gets done; providing motivation, assistance in identifying concrete steps, and accountability. Our engagement lasts as long as you need it.
My practice does not just talk about change, we change things.
I'd love to help you find your truth, remove those blocks, and live your best life. Sign up for a free 15-meeting introductory call with me to experience this work firsthand and learn how it can change your life.
"Candace is a born coach and mentor. She can see gifts in others that we often overlook. She kept telling me I should be a coach when I worked in the corporate world.
I refused to accept this was a path for me and thought my current role was where I was meant to be. Fast forward a few years - I now have a thriving transformational coaching practice. I just wish I would have listened to her sooner. I highly recommend working with Candace - her unique approach will help you uncover the life of your dreams."

THE MIND-BODY CONNECTION
Denying your truth can affect your wellness
Anxiety and stress break down the body’s defenses. A depressed immune system, migraines, skin issues, TMJ and other health issues can be triggered. This is what inspired me to study structural bodywork with a focus on TMJ and migraine relief. It’s also what led me to open In-Symmetry Spa, offering results-driven services with a focus on sports and deep tissue massage.
My superpower is making things happen.
My path to success has not been typical, and it hasn’t always been easy. I like to get things done. Instead of college, I built a business.
I grew up in a loud Sicilian family in New Orleans. I was kicked out of high school, and instead of following down the path laid out for me I picked up and moved to San Francisco at the age of 20. By 25, I was working at Microsoft and at 28 I was making six figures. But, I wasn’t satisfied. I felt unfulfilled. I realized I didn’t like the 9-5 life, working at a desk all day, interfacing with my computer, so at the age of 29, I took some massage classes and opened my own massage company, which is still in business today, In-Symmetry Spa. I quickly built a large practice and grew the spa into what it is today, offering multiple services. Today I also get to live my passion as a life consultant helping others have a more balanced mind and life.
Operating a small business in San Francisco is not for the faint of heart. You need to constantly overcome regulatory, personnel, energetic and financial hurdles. To make this happen I learned to be thoughtful, insightful, assertive, imaginative, and freaking persistent. These are the same traits I bring to you and to our work together.
Transforming my life just wasn’t about changing my day job. For me, it meant a lifestyle transformation including sobriety and pursuing wellness practices like regular acupuncture and more.
With a passion for healing arts (massage, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, chiropractic, talk therapy) I bring a tool belt of these practices and strategies that can be paired with my Real Talk approach to clear you and help you become the best self you can possibly be.
Contact me to set up a time to talk about your blocks, and let’s see what we can build together.
I Can't Wait To Help You Thrive!
"With all of the anxiety I've been experiencing related to starting my own practice and living my life the way I want to, it's been tremendously reassuring to have Candace in my life. She's definitely pointed out things that were far more important to me than I realized, which has paved the way for a lot of growth and change."
