Move beyond the mistaken belief that’s been holding you back: “I need more willpower to do this.”

Discover a holistic approach that can stack the odds in your favor.

We all answer creative free-form questions in a series of several rounds, like:
“The best thing in my life is…”
“I am really good at…”
“The nurturing I need most right now is…”
I work one-on-one with anyone who would like to problem-solve their individual difficulties with quitting smoking. As individual participants talk through what is holding them back and find their solutions, all participants benefit. After all, “What you’re going through, we’re going through too!”
Then, we share with each other how “I relate with that!”
We develop a sense of community, release feelings of shame and loneliness, find answers to what has been holding us back, and learn how to move forward with confidence.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT THESE GROUPS?
“Natalie is by far one of the most talented and authentic group leaders I have ever seen. I have been a teacher for 7 years and have seen a lot of facilitators, but few as strong as Natalie. What makes her so successful is the way that she is able to hold such strong boundaries for the participants. As a result, we feel held in a welcoming and deeply supportive space that we can bring our full selves to and know exactly what to expect when we engage in her healing circle. Furthermore, Natalie’s wealth of knowledge, personal experience, and compassion shine through with each person she is working with so that everyone is able to develop personally as the group witnesses her work with one individual at a time. She seamlessly weaves personal experience, spiritual teachings, and real-life advice into each healing session, it’s fantastic to watch and participate in. Personally, after I volunteered to share in the group, I felt empowered and held by the community in such a way that it pushed my healing forward to reach new heights. I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Natalie in group or one-on-one sessions. She is a truly gifted group facilitator and healer.”
“I was first introduced to Natalie about 6 month ago, and it’s been a lesson in my emotional education since. We began with our group together by doing a meditation and stating our intentions for the group. Natalie explained to us why we gathered and asked if anyone wanted to share. Finally, when someone felt comfortable they offered to share their issue. That’s when things got really interesting. We listened to the person sharing and held space. It was so easy to hear myself in the sharer and how our pains echoed different but the same. Simultaneously Natalie was having a back and forth conversation with the sharer and little by little things started to unravel. Judgment, depression, anxiety, and shame all came up for the sharer and for me. By the end of the sharers external revelation I was also internally having my own. When I go to the group now via Zoom, sometimes I am the sharer and often I am a listener/feedback giver. Having Natalie and the group be interested in my emotions, holding space for me, and gaining more emotional intelligence along the way is a blessing. This group feels like an authentic space to be myself and to come as I am. Human or damaged or strong or beautiful and all at the same time.”
“When I began this journey, I was stuck inside this story of being lost — and full of self-loathing. I wanted someone to understand me, but I got something even better. I got someone who believed I could understand myself. What I loved about your methods was that you weren’t afraid to point things out. But you did it with such love and acceptance. I felt heard. And I felt like you were more invested in the way I saw myself rather than getting me to a conclusion I was ‘supposed’ to see. Thank you. I felt very strongly connected to you. And I never felt like you were judging me. I appreciated your respect and willingness to help me grow, and your acceptance. You rock, and I’ll never forget you.”
“The first time I ever met Natalie, she immediately made me feel comfortable and had a way of making you me feel safe to talk openly. She taught me more about myself than I could have ever imagined without me even realizing. She has never judged me, but only given me love and support throughout my journey with her. She helped me during the worst time of my life. I am so grateful for that. She tells it like it is, but in a manner that makes you think differently after the session in a very good way. She has believed in me from day one. I would highly recommend her to anyone out there.”
I am not a medical doctor. I recommend that all participants work alongside a qualified physician in their journey to quit smoking.
