Audrey Costa

Hello! My name is Audrey and I have over 20 years experience in Health and Wellness. I am a degreed and certified, seasoned coach and facilitator with experience across all age and ability levels. 

 

My experience includes teaching in public education, personal trainer, fitness coach, health and nutrition coach, nature therapy practitioner and as a corporate wellness manager.

 

Combining vision, innovation and best in class services to increase energy across all elements, I have a proven history of increasing the livelihood of clients and their families. I have experience working with people who have traumatic backgrounds and substance use.

 

I believe in sharing my story in order to help others in their journey. Storytelling is an integral part of what I do. My purpose is to help others find their why and guide them on a journey of health. 

On my own personal journey, I have learned a variety of tools and techniques and whole heartedly believe movement, creativity and nature have been instrumental to my growth and healing. I was practicing Shinrin Yoku/Forest Therapy, before I knew it was an actual thing. I am so excited to now have formal training and be able share this amazing practice with others and all of its benefits. I now truly understand that wellness is much more than physical. 

I am an avid hiker and backpacker, writer, photographer and gourd artist!

My Philosophy

Everyone is on a journey, and everyone is healing from something. I have been through a lot in my life, and always promised myself I would use what I have been through to help others. You only have one life. Lets make it the best one, together! I provide an empathetic ear and use motivational interviewing to help us work together to build a plan of action to move you toward your goal. Let me help guide you across the bridge to a healthier, more self accepting existence.
