Do you feel blocked in your career by something but cannot seem to breakthrough?

IF SO, you are like many of our candidates who are trying to find their real path and purpose in the workforce.  Sometimes this happens due to a blockage from deep down inside.

There is no better time to dig deep into yourself to figure out what it is that is causing, a fear to make that change, or preventing you from finding that dream career!

I recently sat down with the very talented Courtnay Meletta and got to the bottom of why this happens with so many job seekers.  If you are feeling “stuck” and need some wisdom I suggest you reach out to her as well.  She can work with you to heal from the inside out and get you on to that career path that you deserve!

I loved my meting with Courtnay and was so excited to hear that she is now practicing in Santa Monica!

Info and BIO below:

For the past 15 years, Courtnay has been an avid student and teacher of the healing and transformational arts.

She trained clinically through her Master’s Degree in Holistic Psychotherapy, and holds certifications as a Core Energetics Body-Centered Practitioner, Yoga Teacher (500-ERYT), NeuroLeadership Coach, and in 2019 will complete her Ph.D. in Mind-Body Medicine, Integrative Mental Health.

After working in private practice in the Northeast for many years, Courtnay realized she had a different calling in the world of healing and transformation. She transformed her own work into a coaching practice where she focuses her clients on the journey towards embodied action and leadership.

Her work is deeply therapeutic while simultaneously encouraging radical action, risk-taking, and a rich spiritual component that illuminates the sacred and unique path each client is designed to walk. Informed by her own deeply intuitive gifts, Courtnay offers a different experience than that of traditional psychotherapy, yet one that cultivates a deeply, sustainable internal shift in her clients.

Her gift is in encouraging individuals to take full responsibility and accountability for their wounds, traumas, and pain, and to convert those experiences into rich learnings and empowered action.

Courtnay offers individual and group coaching as the founder of SpiritWell, a company she founded offer spiritual health and wellness inspiration, resources, and coaching. She is a Teaching Fellow at Saybrook University, co-creator of Ph.D. level course curriculum in Body-Oriented Psychotherapies, and facilitator of Mind-Body-Spirit Seminars, a unique, experiential and ritual-based initiation program for new graduate students.

She’s worked as an executive leadership coach, has developed and facilitated mind-body based seminars to enhance organizational consciousness, all informed by her doctoral research on intentionality, humility, and accountability as the cornerstone for conscious leaders.

Her intention is to make a difference in the lives of her clients by sharing her clinical skills and intuitive gifts, by offering her most authentic self in every interaction, and by fiercely believing that we all deserve to live our heart’s true desire.
