Hi, I'm Sonja! I've got a grateful heart, an optimistic outlook, a creative mind, and a curiosity about the world.
I'm a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200). I have a BA in Health and Psychology and certifications in Life Coaching, Wellness Coaching, Health Coaching, Mental Health First Aid, and Neuroplastic Brain Health.
I spend my days working as a Training and Development Lead for an amazing team of Health Coaches and Health Guides in downtown Minneapolis. When I'm not working, I'm usually curled up with a good book, practicing yoga at the studio, exploring the city, hanging out with my dog, drawing in my sketchbook, snapping photos, hiking in the mountains, or working on a design project.
Repeat after me: When I show up with love and acceptance for who I am right now, I create space for growth and change to happen in an authentic way.
For those of you who feel like you need to reinvent yourself in 2019, remember this:
you are enough, you are whole and complete, and you do not have to achieve anything to be worthy of love.
I believe that when you love yourself unconditionally, unapologetically, and wholeheartedly, your life will change.
If you want to live from a place of love, gratitude, forgiveness, purpose, and resilience, coaching is for you. If you want to change the way you nourish your body, the way you handle stress or anxiety, the way you sleep and rest, the way you move your body, the way you share your work with the world, the way you talk to yourself and feel about your body, the way you view your health, or the way you care for yourself financially, I'm here for you.
I hope that if you decide to change something about yourself this year, it comes from a place of love and acceptance for exactly who you are right now. Here's to loving yourself today and every day.
When I'm not coaching, I usually have a sketchbook in my lap and a pen in my hand. I love to create custom wedding stationary, gratitude cards, habit trackers, planning documents, resumes/cover letters, agendas and calendars, hand lettered signs for nurseries, websites, and hand lettered artwork.
I use a combination of hand drawn design elements, apps on my iPad, Microsoft Word, Photoshop, custom hand lettering, various fonts, paints, markers, gems, and lots of other things to bring my design ideas to life.
If you'd like something in your life to be designed beautifully, send me a message and we'll find a time to grab a latte or chat over the phone. To see examples of my work, follow me on Instagram or send me a message and ask to see my design portfolio.
