"I found working with Seri on a range of challenges, goals and dreams so helpful to me in continuing the path of living life to its fullest. Seri is a knowledgeable and supportive guide in whatever you need to accomplish. We have worked together on such subjects of sorting out a closet, courage to say "yes" or "no" ,sugar addictions, mortality, budgets management, social goals and overall wellness both in body and spirit. I highly recommend anyone who is trying to live better and get everything that life has to offer them, to work(and laugh) with Seri. She is passionate,funny,caring and respectful. A good time is had by all!"
"When I started this 90 day journey I didn't have high expectations because I know myself... at least I thought I did. After the first session I could tell this was something different. I immediately began to feel hopeful about myself again. Seri guided me to discover my high energy foods, which I quickly discovered, were not lattes and blueberry muffins. I learned better sleep habits and that I have a choice in everything, even my thinking. I've also learned that being healthy is a process and I am now committed to that process. I am so grateful to have strolled down this path with my coach. Thank you, Seri. I am a different woman and I am worth it!"
I first sought Seri’s help with nutrition because I felt like I was a prisoner to my own self inflicted poor eating habits. By the questions Seri asked I discovered I was seeking freedom—-freedom to make wiser food choices and quit beating myself up for poor choices. I wanted to honor my own needs as much as I honored everyone else’s needs. Through Seri’s patience with me and genuine caring for me I have bee able to claim more emotional honesty and ask myself what I really wanted, I am no longer a slave to the scale—eating healthy and exercising have become a part of my regular routine. Seri understands and shares from her own journey. Sign up for sessions with Seri —you deserve to treat yourself with kindness.
When I first reached out to Smiling Wellness, I was looking for a sustainable way to clean up my diet and to start moving my body with some sort of regularity. Soon after meeting with Seri for the first time, I began to realize that what I really needed was much deeper than that. Over the course of years battling depression, anxiety, and past trauma, I was not only completely exhausted, but I was dedicating an enormous amount of brain space to hating the person I was inside and out. It became clear that what I really needed from my time with Seri was a way to clear my head and start embracing the person I am, not the person I thought I should be. We had weekly sessions that I started calling “therapy lite”. With Seri’s guidance and thoughtful questioning, I was able to see that what I had thought of as weaknesses were actually my strengths and abilities, like my own personal super powers. After a few months of working together, one day all the pieces fell into place. I stopped in my tracks and said, “What if I just decided to love myself?” I haven’t looked back since. Without Seri’s coaching, I don’t think I would have been able to shift my perspective. Her positive energy is infectious and she knows how to use it to draw out the best in people. My head is no longer dominated by self doubt and I continue to see Seri to help me maintain the balance, space, and mindfulness that I need for good self care. What I love about Smiling Wellness is that it isn’t a one size fits all program. Seri gets to know you and tailors her many skill sets to fit your needs. Her wholistic approach to healthy living goes far beyond just diet and exercise. She is a mind, body, and spirit champion.
"Once I say the words, that gives them power and then it allows me to claim the power of those thoughts and those words instead of them just bumping around in my head all the time and me not really knowing what I think. It gives me clarity.
" Her cheerfulness and genuine personality made me feel confident in challenging areas that were continually visiting me and guided me to make big transformations like truly honoring my body’s needs, adjusting my views toward food choices and the power of positive thinking."
"I love myself today! Not because I dropped 5 pounds, or because my skin cleared up, or because I have more energy, sleep better, can cook many different meals (YES all those things DID HAPPEN!) but because I learned how to respect my body, mind and spirit from the INSIDE."
"I had lost momentum in career, health & personal priorities. I was struggling to get back on track. I was raised to believe, “If I just work hard enough, I can do anything!” Well, working harder wasn’t helping! I needed new ideas, new strategies, new thinking. Put quite simply, working with Seri was an invaluable “re-set button”."
