In my lessons, my goal is to allow you to feel confident lacing
verbs with vocabulary, to get you conversational in all of the tenses within six months while learning phrases specific to your favorite
Spanish-speaking country. In translation, my aim is for you to say exactly what you need to say as you would say it. I am your voice, in Spanish. Ojala that you will be your most authentic self in Spanish, whether looking for an interpretation, translation, or taking it on as your next language.


Take the next steps into an empowered, life in Costa Rica integrating yourself with local culture.Find your vocation in your new country and your highest self as an immigrant. Build  relationships with locals, enhance quality with Costa Ricans, and improve your work life abroad.  Work towards your vision of your best life, and let go of what is holding you back to integral living amongst Costa Ricans.
We simply dive into unspoken beaches and jungles to learn about it's wildlife with a local guide. We work at minimalizing your possessions and maximizing your understanding of a Costa Rican lifestyle. Like most life coaching, we work on personal goal setting, planning, identifying future self, habits, rituals, and accountability within a new culture.

It's essential to recognize that life coaching is very different from therapy. I am a certified life coach and NLP, not a psychologist. Please consider what path may be best for you as I do not think myself to be a mental health practitioner, and I deeply respect the work of those who dedicate their lives to this field. 


Life coaches are practicing cartographers. Psychologists trained are mechanics. As the world of wellness crosses grows without technical checkpoints, I find it essential to make this difference.
