Are you feeling stuck or held back and know that there is more for your life, career, or self, yet you do not know what that is or how to get there? Do you find yourself over-reacting in situations? Do you continually rehash and obsess over what you should have done or said?
Clients: new to leadership, want to move into leadership, or have suffered traumatic events or relationships,
Mindfulness coaching helps you find ways to connect your mind, body, and spirit so that you can re-write your story and become an empowered, authentic person. We try to hide from the shame by doing more or learning more yet still feel unempowered or stuck. Coaching allows you the space and time to learn about yourself. While mindfulness practices are offered as homework to practice and re-learn new ways of living This process allows you to grow intentionally, meaningfully, so you move confidently into the future.
I have a Master of Science degree and numerous professional certifications and became a leader within the private sector and the Federal government. My career was stalled because of the ways I treated others and how I responded in stressful situations. Through a regular mindfulness practice and focused coaching, I transformed myself and moved up the ranks professionally while becoming more balanced in my professional, spiritual, and personal life. I want to share this process with you.
My coaching program includes Learning, Unlearning, Relearning, and My Learning along with mindfulness meditations and activities.
- Learn – Uncover yourself
- Unlearn – Clean-out old beliefs, attitudes, and activities that no longer suit you
- Relearn – Explore and practice new behaviors, thoughts, and actions
- My Learn – Become unstuck and embrace your true self and live more authentically
Each step of this process provides you with formal (guided meditations) and informal (intentional awareness to present activities) mindfulness practices to support you during your transformation.

Sandy Menzies is a thoughtful life coach who helped me clarify my Why statement to get to the core of why I wanted to be a coach. My Coaching Nirvana Statement and my Onboarding statement suggesting changes that were very helpful. She listens carefully and is thoughtful about what she says and what she suggests. I found her 3 point breath exercise very helpful. I used it for myself and my clients. She suggested changes that made my mindfulness meditations more clear and powerful. She also had me make them my own with my letterhead. Sandy is an excellent coach and I was fortunate to have her.Mari Craig
Sandy's approach to coaching puts the client's best interest at the center of the conversation. Over the past two years, Sandy has helped me clarify my intentions, clear my path of distractions, and enabled me to craft smaller obtainable, concrete actions to pursue my goals. She genuinely cared while she walked along side me, empowering me to take my next steps.Gwen Garrison
Sandy was very patient and encouraging to me for the year we spent together as coach and mentee. I was unable to express myself clearly and assertively in my carrier. She gave me tools to work with and follow up with my progress. I always remember her simple but focused questions and feedback when I need it.Meron Debebe
Sandy is genuinely interested and focused on helping others grow. She is a sympathetic listener and asks questions that challenge your perspective. She has worked with a variety of clients and brings broad life and work experience to her practice.Kathy Heer
