Hey, Seri here. I have been on a transformative wellness journey since my teens. A self proclaimed recovering emotional eater/food addict, I've spent decades finding peace on my plate & in my life. Thanks to years spent as a professional actress, I've become attuned to the intricacies of human behavior, not only of my own but also to those around me. I am astutely connected to the human spirit, have deep empathetic listening skills & good sense of humor.
In mid 2015, I felt an itch to experience a more expanded peaceful joyous life in mind, body and spirit. In doing so, I discovered a new calling. I embraced a new identity as a Coach. My journey to self discovery happens to have been through my relationship with food and it led me to the wonderful life I live today. This is my journey.
Hello there....I'm Seri
June 2016-2018 Health & Life Coach Certifications
As a recovering food addict, I am passionate in sharing my love of REAL food and the art of body acceptance and intuitive eating. Working with clients to listen to their own bodies and soul driven purpose, incorporating REAL food and true opened awareness to habits and behavioral loops that are keeping them stuck.
I realized my gift is to inspire others to live a real joyous, peaceful and fulfilled existence. Through conversation, attuned listening and powerful questioning sequences, clients learn to take responsibility for their lives. Practicing steady & consistent affirmative action allows for slow transformative change. By releasing mental stuck points & gaining awareness-clients have the key to open their own doors to Self Actualization.
October 2017-2018 NLP & Hypnotherapy Certifications
I love understanding the mind. NLP assists understanding how the human mind works & allows the release of limiting patterns, behaviors & old programs by reprogramming (upgrading) the mind to run more efficiently to make everyday life a smoother ride.
While I don't use hypnotherapy in my sessions, I learned hypnotherapy to connect with the deepest parts of heart and soul to live more joyously. Hypnotherapy creates a bridge of communication between the conscious and unconscious mind. Clients report this relaxed state of focused attention as an ideal inner atmosphere for gently clearing problems while connecting with a resourceful state of solution based behavior and thoughts.
August 2019-Plant Based Nutrition Certification
T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and e-Cornell. This is an excellent education, discussing the history of nutrition, lifestyle disease and the benefits and practical application of a Whole Foods Plant Based Life. I also learn as I go in life. If you want to see what I eat, have a visit to the Happy Kitchen page of this website. Lots of inspiration there
I have been on the journey to being plant based since 2012. I let go of Beef, Pork and Poultry and other animal proteins then eventually fish and lastly dairy and eggs. While I am not a purist about the last two categories as I do this more for health that the animal activism side, I have to say I feel positive and content about the changes I have made for my body, for the animals and for the planet.

The Enneagram is a wonderful tool for personal growth. It is a system of personality typing that describes patterns in how people interpret the world and manage their emotions. It can be incredibly valuable to understand ourselves and also other people with greater depth and compassion.
After an amazing 12 sessions with a Tapping professional who works with money blocks, I became a firm believer in the power of EFT (emotional freedom technique) So I am currently investigating a company with whom I plan to get a full education in tapping for the release of just about anything that is an issue or problem in life. (I know it sounds crazy...but it's pretty magical)
Byron Katie wrote a book called, "Loving What is". I read it a long time ago and recently her name and her work keeps popping up in my world. I want to learn all that I can about her technique for clearing mental crap called, "The Work". I don't know if I will chose to certification, but I will definitely be using it for myself and introducing it to clients.
