I feel truly blessed to be able to support and work with my clients in the capacity that I do. I remember when I first began coaching, I had a friend who is a doula. She described to me the joys of being able to support a mother as she went through the transformational process of birthing a child. I thought to myself, this is very much how I feel.
I have the opportunity to witness the amazing process of a person bringing himself/herself into the world in a more aligned and authentic way. It is a wonder and a true honor to hold this unique position in the lives of each and every one of my clients.
"My husband was truly impressed and excited about having someone with the knowledge and support to really help him make some long overdue lifestyle changes and feel better! Also, it makes it easier for him to support me when he understands what is really going on inside and how it affects everything."
By working with Traci, I truly realized that I needed to make a shift in my belief systems, and not just changes in what I ate and how I exercised. She helped me to re-focus my initial goals, and listened to my challenges and needs, interpreting back to me through my own language how my thoughts and approaches were what was standing in the way of what I wanted. Traci provided invaluable resources, geared towards my individual needs, and she offered just the right guidance, patience and encouragement to meet me where I was and allow me to feel successful at each step of the journey with her. Now, I not only believe a have a much better relationship with food and have lost about 15 pounds without much effort at all, I definitely have a more healthy relationship with myself and have learned to honor what I need in all areas of my life. Traci has helped me to recognize and accept my emotions and feel more strength and power from working through them. She is quite intuitive, open, honest, enthusiastic, gentle, generous and very dependable. I absolutely recommend Traci to anyone looking for help to shift their perspective or something that they feel stuck on in their life, and who is willing to invest the time and energy into themselves. I owe so much to Traci, that it would be impossible to put it all down here, but I am thankful that I entrusted this work to her and that I took the step to do this for myself.
"Traci has been an amazing resource for me. I find that every time we talk, I realize that a conversation with her is truly detoxifying! She has an amazing way about her . . . she can open you up and help you to find solutions and a wellness path. I cry almost every time we have a conversation! It's in a good way, a productive way. We could all benefit from talking with Traci . . . I highly recommend her to everyone. I hear myself sounding cheesy here, but seriously, this woman is amazing! It is so easy to work with her, and I have appreciated the flexibility of having our sessions over the phone, so I don't have to travel and I can relax and focus on having much needed ME time!"
" I first hired Traci to discover who I am authentically, to become a better parent and to find more joy and meaning in my life. Now, after coaching with her, I am working out with a personal trainer 2 times a week, doing yoga 2 times per week, feeling great about the healthier foods that I am incorporating into my diet and my home life with my kids has improved drastically! I have a very good relationship with my children and feel so much more empowered and confident as their mother. I cannot say enough about Traci and her support. She is a true expert in her field and is able to gracefully handle all ranges of emotion and mirror them back in a way that real learning can take place. I feel like I have gained a friend. Traci really cares and has made me feel not only valuable as a person, but truly significant. I never felt as if she sees her coaching as 'a job.' She is tremendously gifted at getting people to feel loved & authentically valuable. I have grown so much as a person with Traci's guidance, and I am using what she has taught me as the foundation for my future. I am so excited for what comes next and eternally grateful for this very moment!"
"Traci Philips is one of the most centered people I have ever known! She has helped me so much, physically and professionally, that I could never really give her the thanks she deserves."
"Wow, how can I explain what I have experienced working with Traci? In the time with her, I have been able to accomplish so many of my goals . . .large and small. I know this has been essential to my feelings of success and allowing me to acknowledge and experience the growth I have shown. Not only have I lost weight, reduced my medications and become more active, but I have learned to better love and accept myself for who I am and what I offer the world. I can now recognize when an area of my life is out of balance. I no longer view myself as 'sick' or make myself sick in order to feel or not feel the pressure and expectations of others. I own my food choices now and understand how to use it as nourishment for my body. I am learning to trust myself and my instincts and realize that I really do know what is best for me. There is so much I could say about what I have learned about myself and ways to live a more full and empowered life. Traci has been that grounded support I have needed for so long. What she can pick up from listening to me and responding to what is important to me is incredible and a true gift. She is kind-hearted, encouraging, motivating, transparent and completely non-judgmental. I have absolutely loved working with Traci. The funny thing is that I was nervous and unsure in the very beginning, but it didn't take long for me to realize that she was the key to helping me make the lifelong changes that were necessary. I am forever grateful. Traci has been a true blessing!"
"I recommend Traci to anyone who thinks they need to be on a diet for all the wrong reasons! Traci explains, educates and empowers you to have a desire to propel yourself to a higher level. She works with integrity and professionalism and is an acute listener, a sacred mirror and a wonderful, compassionate teacher. She has so delicately 'un-zipped' me to myself, so that I could become more aware of my Core Values and align my beliefs and my actions to help me live more authentically. I have been able to get rid of my joint pain and have built an ease and acceptance of myself. I have a gentler way of being ME!"
"The most exciting thing I experienced working with Traci was the realization that it's okay to work towards living an 'Ideal Life.' I would describe Traci as enthusiastic, passionate, educated and compassionate. If you are a person looking to take the next steps and are looking for support to become the best version of you, I highly recommend Traci. Working under her direction and instruction, I have become a person who is more aware, more open and more understanding of my path. My work with Traci has led me to look inward like never before! By defining my life goals, writing a Mission Statement and a Life Plan, I have a direction and purpose for ME. Most importantly, Traci has instilled in me that it is okay to be ME. I am unique and I love who I am and where I am going."
"Traci has offered such tremendous support and education to me to get my family's and my own eating/health back on track. My family has issues with autoimmune disorders, and I became very concerned about being proactive in my health with 5 children. Traci not only gave me the nutritional information I needed, but she was amazingly easy to talk to. Traci had zero judgment about my previous ways of eating and was accepting to the fact that I/we will be taking smaller steps to get to our more optimal way of living. No question too small, no question too difficult for Traci to answer, and she gave me more than I had even originally asked for; she gave me permission to slow down, evaluate my time and quality of life, as well. I am very thankful for Traci's support, and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to feel better, needs help with focus in their lives or who, nutritionally, needs to take a step towards losing weight and being healthy!"
"In working with Traci, I have found her to be intuitive, thoughtful, gracious, curious and open. She really helped me to expand my sense of what nourishment looks like by reminding me that the way I go about nurturing myself is important in all aspects of my life, not just the choice of what I eat. I think the biggest tangible change I have come away with after working with Traci is that I now, more regularly, ask myself what my body wants and needs, and then make my food decisions from that place. Certainly, the biggest significant change I have seen is the relief I feel in not holding myself to a rigid diet, and thus not setting myself up for struggle and disappointment."
"Traci is such a wise and experienced teacher. She was able to relate to all of my struggles in ways that were relevant and helpful. My goals and dreams when I first began working with her were to quit my job with Big Pharma, become a full-time fitness coach and achieve a body fat percentage of 20% or less. Traci has given me the tools and applications that I can use for the rest of my life to ensure I am making authentic choices. I now have a sense of calm and ease with transitions in my life. I was surprised with how easy and carefree my changes were. By the end of my program with Traci, I had not only quit my 12-year career and become a solopreneur, doing what I dreamed of doing, I achieved 19.7% body fat, and I gained an understanding and awareness that when I am living according to my internal guidance, everything will be as it should. I would recommend Traci to anyone who has come to realize they deserve more out of life than what they are currently getting. Coaching is an integral part of success in all aspects of life. It's okay to ask for help, we are meant to receive it."
“I have been truly amazed by how much insight I have after working with Traci. I am able to look at things in ways now that have allowed me to improve relationships, free up my time and feel more empowered and in control of my life and what I choose to do with it. The sense of peace I feel has been a big shift for me. I don’t get drawn into others’ drama or feel responsible for making situations better for others by ‘fixing’ things. I am able to separate others’ problems from my purpose. I have learned how to appropriately and powerfully process feelings and move to a place of forgiveness and acceptance. Through setting healthy boundaries, I feel capable of accomplishing tasks that have seemed overwhelming in the past. I cannot thank Traci enough. I would recommend her to anyone suffering from anxiety, self-doubt, feelings of being lost or needing a new direction. I am finally realizing that focusing on what I need allows me to be a better person and enjoy life by sharing my best self with the world. This is not a selfish thing and creates so much more fulfillment and connection.”
"Once in awhile, God brings special people into your life. I reached out to Traci, and after one hour on the phone, she not only inspired me to want to make changes, but she made me realize how much I truly want to live! Thank you, Traci! I look forward to a healthier life because of you!."
"I began working with Traci to decrease inflammation in my body, lose weight and increase my energy and strength. Traci not only gave me valuable tips, tools and tangible strategies to put into place to work towards these goals, but her support was invaluable, consistent and non-judgemental. Not only did I meet my goals, but much of the chronic pain I had been dealing with previously, was completely gone! My attitude and the faith I have in myself to change the course of my own life has been one of the greatest gifts from working with Traci. I highly recommend her to anyone struggling with issues that they can no longer work through on their own. There are always options, and when all else fails, I have found that building awareness of and trusting my own power to heal with the proper tools and support, is the best approach of all. I cannot say enough about how Traci helped me to help myself. She allowed me to see the power of true, authentic growth."
"I find Traci to be well-read, reasonable and a valuable resource. In the time I worked with her, she brought new ideas to my attention that allowed me to experience and choose the course of action that was right for me. This was refreshing! With Traci's guidance I can say I have become more focused on my daily life - I am becoming mindful! In the 9 months I worked with her, I bought and have incorporated a 'serious' juicer into my nutritional practice, am learning to eat Paleo, read and was deeply inspired by the book, Grain Brain, have replaced pasta with 'spiralized' zucchini and squash and went from 230lbs to 214lbs! I have also only missed 5 days of walking 2 or more miles a day since beginning my work with Traci and am nearly debt free (only my mortgage left to go!). I feel, at age 70, as if I am finally 'growing up' and taking responsibility for all areas of my life."
"The most exciting thing I experienced working with Traci was the realization that it's okay to work towards living an 'Ideal Life.' I would describe Traci as enthusiastic, passionate, educated and compassionate. If you are a person looking to take the next steps and are looking for support to become the best version of you, I highly recommend Traci. Working under her direction and instruction, I have become a person who is more aware, more open and more understanding of my path. My work with Traci has led me to look inward like never before! By defining my life goals, writing a Mission Statement and a Life Plan, I have a direction and purpose for ME. Most importantly, Traci has instilled in me that it is okay to be ME. I am unique, and I love who I am and where I am going."
"For me, Traci represents the epitome of wellness. She lives what she talks about and that holds more credibility with me than anything else. She exercises, eats right and is genuinely concerned for the health of others. I told my husband at the beginning of this year that I was most thankful for Traci saving my life!"
"Working with Traci has allowed me to stay on track and has given me a broader perspective from which to assess my life. She has helped me to dig deeper to determine what is truly right for me. It has changed the way in which I relate to the world, for sure. I have learned to understand the causes and effects of past patterns of self-talk and beliefs in order to free myself from habits and ways of thinking that no longer serve me. Traci is an excellent listener who guides without judgement. She is able to focus on being the perfect mirror, allowing me to determine my own way and become enlightened to my own deeper knowing about myself and what I need. I recommend Traci to anyone who wants and needs lasting change in life. If you are looking for someone who can offer support in a true, authentic and caring way, she is the right one for the job. I know I am forever changed!"
"I have been impressed with Traci's ability to read between the lines of what I share with her. In my time working with her, I have discovered Traci to be very intuitive and able to help me reconnect with my true self. She has helped me to better understand the underlying issues which were the real reasons behind my habits. I find, now, I am less analytical and less knee-jerk when it comes to my responses to spur of the moment issues that arise in my business and home life. One of my biggest issues was perfectionism, and I can say I am seeing real improvement in myself and my expectations of others in this area. I find now that I look more at the positive outcomes of daily events instead of focusing solely on the negatives and the areas that need 'fixing.' I recommend Traci to anyone who has struggled with trying to change personal habits and outcomes in order to reach a goal. She can help you to discover who you really are as a person and what gifts you have to offer to others. She is great at helping you redefine yourself and your 'why' so that you can help yourself progress and serve at your greatest capacity."
"I recommend Traci to everyone and anyone. I think she has the ability to meet you where you are and then gently guide you in a perfectly unique and right direction for you. Traci does this without judgment and with deep wisdom and intuition. She is very loving and holds space for you with such integrity and grace. I have been so impressed with the way Traci can intuit the deeper patterns of thinking and feeling and weave the connectedness of all the information I have shared with her to allow for a deeper awareness of the bigger picture."
