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 coach from the belief that we are all whole and connected beings. Through our lives, we have all suffered and we are enough. When we seek to be helped, we may see ourselves as weak. When we seek to be fixed, we may see ourselves as broken. When we seek to be, we see ourselves as whole. In our wholeness, we see our weaknesses as strengths and our brokenness as mortar that makes us strong, grounded, and confident. I do not provide you the answers or fix your problems, yet journey with you in compassion, accountability, and validation.
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
Start your journey of transformation.

I have had the immense pleasure to have Sandy as my coach for the past 6 months. We hit it off right away, she is great and would absolutely recommend her. I feel I have grown and flourish into a better leader without compromising my values. Sandy works with you for you to grow and gain understanding and solid leadership bases for the future. She has provided expectational values in her ability to assess the situations and offer concrete tools, recommendations and plans of actions to enable my growth. Even though my professional development funds through work have ran out, I decided to continue working with Sandy, to improve myself, to learn from her and challenge myself to think outside on my box. I have also leaned a tremendous amount of skills, techniques and resources for my career development and leadership. Thank you Sandy, for all your help!Cecilia Kretz
If you are a professional that need support to explore your inner strengths, I recommend Sandy to you. I have worked with Sandy and she has a superpower as a gifted listener to hold a grounded space guiding her clients toward sustainable outcomes. Her experience in mindfulness meditation would definitely bring extra flavor to the coaching engagement. Look to Sandy to access your inner strengths and courage.

Sandra is a wonderful coach who puts her heart and soul into coaching her clients and supporting them in reaching their goals. Her coaching framework "learn, unlearn, relearn, my learn" is so powerful and It helped me gain clarity on areas I needed to change in my life and new behaviors/perspectives I need to adopt to move forward and grow. Sandra's empathy, support and positivity helped me see opportunities, possibilities and hope. Thank you Sandra for empowering me!Lyssa Miskawi
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
