A Unique Private Retreat Experience Focused Entirely on You!

In the beautiful resort city of Santa Barbara, California, also known as the American Riviera, you’ll have the rare experience of taking time out to immerse yourself in an intensive exploration that’s all about you and only you.

Your retreat will be a private, one-on-one, life coaching experience that is customized to give you exactly what you need, when you need it, at a pace that works for you.

The focus will be entirely on you and your life as you discover the choices that will lead you to becoming the happier, more balanced and peaceful woman you’ve been longing to be.

Take a soulful, guided journey back to yourself

Your personal retreat will address your unique needs in a way that cannot be achieved in a group setting. It’s all about you! We’ll be using a proven process, yet a flexible structure that allows us to spend just the right amount of time on activities that will best serve you. I call on my intuition to guide me to the right tools and activities for you, at the right time.

A typical retreat lasts three, four or five days, featuring 5-6 hours of one-on-one coaching time each day. A typical day usually runs from 9:30-4:30 with a two hour break to enjoy the delights of Santa Barbara, either together or on your own. I say “typical” because this is a custom retreat just for you and we can adjust the timing to suit your needs.

The amount of time we spend together each day depends on your energy and your choices. The retreat is intended to be a blend of structured time together, and time on your own for quiet reflection and other activities that interest you. I utilize a variety of self-discovery activities, including: journaling exercises, guided visualizations/meditations and vision board creation to assist in generating insights and breakthroughs.

A typical 4-day retreat culminates in the creation of powerful statements of vision and purpose and heartfelt intentions that are unique to you and will energize and inspire you to make solid commitments to improve your quality of life. Depending on your needs and requests, the retreat may focus on other outcomes which we will discuss and agree upon. We will work together to generate a plan for moving forward and there are options for ongoing telephone coaching following your retreat time in Santa Barbara.You’ll leave feeling happier, more balanced and at peace with your life.

My retreats are unique in that I do not work in a retreat center environment. Santa Barbara is filled with lovely hotels.  You get to pick the hotel setting that you find most nurturing and appealing to you, and I’ll bring the retreat experience to you. All we need is a room with a comfortable sitting area for two. Many hotels have gardens, patios, etc., where we can work as well. During time on your own, there are a number of spas, yoga centers, restaurants, shops and other services available nearby.

The cost of your accommodations and meals are entirely up to you and your choices. My coaching fee for my standard retreat package (which includes a total of 2.5 hours of pre- and post-retreat coaching calls) starts at $3,500 for three full days. Other custom retreat packages can be created to fit your needs, such as a combination of half-days (three hours) and full days.

Once we speak and choose the dates for your retreat, we will schedule your 90-minute pre-retreat call and I will send you a questionnaire to complete and return to me prior to our call. This will set your retreat experience in motion even before you leave home!

If you are interested in arranging a retreat, the next step would be to speak on the phone so that I can better understand what you are looking for, explain more about the retreat experience and you can ask any other questions you have. I can be reached at 805-569-2564 or, you can email me and let me know some good times to reach you and I’d be happy to call you.
