lifestyle guidance

with personalized coaching

Let's start by looking at you-all of you: mind, body and spirit;  to see what may be out of balance and causing dis-ease and collaborate on a holistic healing plan. My own personal experience, combined with my training and education allows me to guide you and give you the tools and methods for empowering yourself and your health.  

experiential workshops

The workshops are a wonderful, intimate experience which help you to incorporate the 9 Healing factors that Dr. Kelly Turner researched in her book, Radical Remission.  Currently, I conduct a Radical Remission Workshop once a year. Usually, it is in early spring and in Washington state. My next workshop is tentatively scheduled for 2023, in Washington State.


Check out Dr. Turner's book or the Radical Remission website. The website will list other workshop leaders around the world and their workshop schedules. Also, there is a link from my Resources page :-)

Meet Cynthia

In 2014, I was diagnosed at the age of 54 with a late stage, rare ovarian cancer. My world shifted in a moment.I felt like I had landed in a parallel that was frightening and foreign. Fear, confusion and dread were my initial companions. With the love and help of so many and by empowering myself and my health, I learned how to help heal my body by using a holistic and integrated health approach. 

I have been where you are and walked in your shoes...I understand. I found my best life through cancer and I would love to support you and help you be empowered on your journey to healing. 

Here is one of my clients, Leily Kiani's, experience:  


"I was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer in February 2019.  My family, husband and friends rallied around me to get me through chemo and treatments.  I just had a hard time thinking that I will live through this diagnosis.   My integrated medicine oncologist recommended that I read “Radical Remission” by Dr. Kelly Turner.  That changed my life.  I couldn’t put the book down.  I started to see the light.  I started to see that I can live a long life with this diagnosis.  Chemo worked and I was declared NED in July, but I still found myself thinking the worst.  I have always been such a positive person, but this diagnosis was knocking me to the ground and I just didn’t know how to get up.  I found Cynthia through the book and she has been amazing!  I am so glad to have her on my side.  She taught me how to calm my anxiety and persevere.  She held me accountable for exercise and assignments.  She made me realize that each day is precious, and I need to enjoy my beautiful children and loving husband.  She made me realize that my husband was showing his love in his own way.  He is cooking me healthy meals and supporting me in exercising.  She said each person in my life supports in the only way they know how.  My 81-year-old mother is my rock and Cynthia made me realize that I need to think about how much of my mother I have in me.  At 81 she has an active lifestyle and healthy.  


I still struggle with my thoughts and I just must keep bringing myself back to the positive place that I need to be.  Thank you, Cynthia, for your insight and making me realize that there is a life to live.  I am so grateful to have met you along the way on this journey. "


“Sometimes being stuck in situations or life decisions requires us to step outside ourselves and seek the wisdom objectivity and compassion of a trusted person.

Cynthia's guidance is full of the proper tools and thought provoking ideas that it takes to find clarity and resolve in moving forward. She does this with humility and integrity offering a solid foundation in the work being done. That foundation is needed to feel confidence and accomplishment. I recommend Cynthia as a life coach not just because she is good at what she does but also that I feel good in doing what I am doing.

"I contacted Cynthia when I was dealing with a cancer recurrence and wanted to apply more of the Radical Remission steps to my daily life. She was such a fantastic source of knowledge and insight, her warmth and positivity really helped me get through such a trying time. It was so wonderful to talk to someone who’d been through something similar and had helpful suggestions for coping and thriving while going through cancer treatment. I am incredibly grateful for her help and would recommend her coaching services to anyone!"
