You can have a thriving family AND a thriving business!!
You want to jump out of bed every morning feeling excited and inspired to start your day because you know what you have planned for the day are all the things that make you feel inspired, fulfilled, and unstoppable!!
You want to BE fully present and in the moment when you are at home spending time with your amazing family AND have that same presence and focus as you build your career, because you love your work too!!
You want to have more time, more money, and way more freedom so you can live your life doing what it is that you love AND experiencing ALL that life has to offer
But more than anything, you want to feel like life is fun again.
It has been through helping many of my stressed out and burnt out clients learn how to pause and listen and to tune into their bodies AND live in alignment WITH what is truly important to them, that I have realized even more deeply the importance of this work.
I myself personally know what that stress and burnout feel like. I know what that same routine day in and day out feeling like your living your life in your personal groundhog day, doing everything for everybody else feels like!! You even ask yourself, is this all there is? (It can't be, deep down, you know there has to be more.)
I know EXACTLY how you feel
You wake up in the middle of the night with the list of things you have to do for the day ahead swirling around in your mind. You just want to go back to sleep but you can’t because you feel anxious in your stomach. You’re already trying to organize your list so that everything gets done. You know that your schedule is so jam-packed that if just one thing goes wrong, like a flat tire, it would mean disaster. You feel anxious just thinking about it.
Before your feet even hit the floor each morning you have resigned yourself to the fact that you know there is no way you are going to have enough time to complete your never-ending to-do list and quite honestly, you are sick and tired of trying.
You know you are over-scheduled and overworked but you don’t know how to change it, so you just keep trying to do EVERYTHING YOU CAN until you can find the time to “figure it out.”
To make more time for your to-do list, you skip going to the gym and your favorite Yoga class. You tell yourself “no worries, I can go to my class tomorrow instead.” Deep down though, you know that you’re lying to yourself again because you know you aren’t going to go to the gym tomorrow either!!
When others ask you for help you feel like you can’t say no because if you don’t help them, who will? So you squeeze it in.
You are so tight on time that you have started grabbing convenience food or whatever you can get your hands on quickly. Because of this, you're gaining weight, feeling exhausted, and drained.
You feel like each day is the same thing day in and day out, living your life on autopilot, wondering is this all that there is to your life. You even tell yourself, “after this week things will calm down.” Or, “as soon as this is over, things will be back to normal.”
But week after week it’s always more of the same. Being overscheduled has become your normal and things only get busier.
Does any of this sound familiar?
If this is how you are feeling, then it is no coincidence that you are here. I do not believe in coincidences AT ALL!!
The list above, describes how many of my clients have felt before we have worked together in my coaching programs. In fact, this is how I felt for years. I just kept pushing myself harder and harder, trying to hold everything together, trying to make it through the day, expecting more and more from myself trying in vain to "balance all of the spinning plates."
I get it, you are doing the best you can
You have every intention each day to eat right and prepare meals in advance because you know how amazing you feel when you give your body what it needs.
You have tried every organizational tool, scheduler, and planner known to mankind to help you manage your time more effectively so you can get even more done.
You want to be recognized for your efforts, you want to feel like you're making an impact, and feel truly passionate about your work.
You know you need to focus more but with the constant interruptions and distractions, you feel like you are “busier than ever” but accomplishing less and less.
You know you are so blessed in all that you have but you feel selfish and ungrateful for wanting more and for feeling like something is missing from your life.
All of this has just kept you spinning and swirling in circles feeling like you are getting nowhere.
Hi, I’m Laurie!!
I help women slow down (for more than 5 minutes), pause, and quiet the noisy distractions so they can have more time, more energy, more joy, and live the life they have been imagining and dreaming of.
Now, I know that you already know that changes need to be made. You know that things can not go on like this.
In fact, you have tried to make these changes on your own.
You even tell yourself that’s it, starting tomorrow I am going back to the gym or I am going to eat healthy. I will do it. I am forcing myself to get there and I am making the time.
You get excited about the new changes you are making, you even buy new sneakers to celebrate your renewed commitment to getting and staying healthy this time “ for real”. You are finally making time for you by meal prepping and buying healthy organic products. You buy new cook books and find healthy recipes. Things start out great. You get in your groove. You even lose 5 pounds and feel fantastic. You say to yourself I feel amazing, why did I ever stop. You swear that this time is different and nothing is stopping you from feeling like this ever again!
But then, it happens,something comes up unexpectedly and you are the only person that can help AGAIN!! It knocks you out of your flow and you fall off track. Just like that progress is stopped and you are slipping backwards.
Despite your best efforts, this start and stop pattern is driving you crazy. It is so frustrating because you want to make and keep these changes so they become a habit that you just do each day. You can’t figure out why this keeps happening. You just want to find your flow AND stay there.
Do you know why this start and stop keeps happening over and over again, keeping you STUCK living your life on autopilot just going through the motions?
It’s because your choices are aligned with what others want, not what you want. You are meeting OTHER people’s expectations of you.
Your body is speaking to you but you are having trouble hearing it’s quieter voice over all of the noise and busyness that is showing up as not having enough time, that feeling of never moving fast enough, the tightness and ache in your neck, shoulders and jaw, the when is it going to be time for me feeling.
What is this costing you? Your health? Your physical and emotional well being?
Saying you don’t have enough time isn’t the answer or the problem…..
It’s an excuse
Stop trying to find more time. You won’t find it until you learn where time comes from!!
Until you turn inward and make yourself your number 1 priority, you will stay stuck in this never ending, frustrating pattern.
When you shift your mindset, go against the grain and stop putting everyone else’s needs ahead of your own, some magical shit happens, you find and step into your flow. You step into ease. You stop doing things to get them completed and off of your to-do list and start loving the things that you are doing because you feel passionate and fulfilled by what is ON YOUR LIST
You feel more confident because you know that the decisions you make are aligned with your goals and dreams.
Things that you once thought were important to you will fall away because you no longer feel the need to prove to others that you are enough by doing more things or by how many check marks you have on your to-do list or by ‘’how busy you are”
Imagine for a moment……
🦋 Waking up in the morning feeling rested while everyone else is still sleeping giving you time alone to enjoy your cup of tea or coffee and write in your journal
🦋 You feel overwhelmed with love, gratitude and a deep appreciation for all that you have
🦋 Meditating each morning to get quiet and center yourself
🦋 Reviewing healthy recipes so you can meal prep before work
🦋 Heading out to the gym for your favorite morning workout knowing that you have more than enough time for it and you are going to feel even more amazing after.
🦋 Getting to work and everyone can feel your high energy vibe and are wondering “what is she doing differently?”
🦋 You have patience beyond measure and your schedule flows with ease instead of “squeeze”
Here are what some of Laurie’s past clients have reported:
“I have been going for massage therapy for years, and until I went to Laurie I never realized how much pain and stress relief can be had with Laurie’s knowledge and techniques of her profession. Not only as a massage therapist but also as a BodyMind coach. Laurie has taught and helped me personally in so many ways. Through experiencing BodyMind Coaching, I was truly impressed and surprised at how sensitive, insightful, and helpful working with Laurie has been. I would highly recommend BodyMind Coaching”
I have been working with Laurie for 4 years now. I began the BodyMind Coaching program about 6 months ago. The program has changed my life in ways I never knew it needed to be changed. She taught me to ask the questions and find the I answers I needed. We were able to get results quickly! She taught me that something isn’t ever happening to me, it’s happening for me. Her support and uplifting answers were something I always looked forward to in the program. If it wasn’t for this program I would never know the possibilities I could manifest by just simply believing in myself. Continuing this program is something I look forward to. Uncovering the amazing possibilities I have inside me is something I learned and will continue to practice.
The way to step into the life the life you love and have been imagining, a life that inspires you and lights you up, a life filled with fun, joy, and ease, a life that honors you, a life where you are a first thought and not an afterthought is to begin the journey inward.

“The Turning INward programs have been created for women with a never- ending to-do list
Who feel like they are running on a hamster wheel day in and day out when what they actually want is to have more time, more freedom, and more energy for the things that are important to them NOW, not later in life.
What I have learned in my own life and from coaching my clients is that when you fully step into making yourself a priority consistently, when you make time for your self-care, when you say yes to you, everything shifts!
What these programs offer is the safe space and the supportive container for you to say yes to you. They give you the know how and the growth to live your life connected to your inner compass, connected to your intuition, connected to what FEELS right for you.
It is my intention to give you the steps and the knowledge that I am equipped with from all of my years of experience so that you know deep down in your gut what if feels like and what it means to truly honor yourself in your life, in your family, in your community, and in your work on a whole new level.
I give you the tools, the steps, the how, and an insane level of support to help you do just that.
What I have learned in my own life as a massage therapist and now as a coach is that I have been coaching and doing this work all along I just didn’t know it.
My family, my friends, my clients would all say to me how I was the voice of reason. I could see at the end of our conversations the relief and the yeah “I’ve got this,” “I can do this” look on their faces.” Their bodies would go from tense to completely relaxed.
What I didn’t know at that time was that I was giving people the tools to feel and do empowered things in their lives.
They knew what they needed to do. What they were really looking for was the support, the confidence, the accountability, and the guidance to implement it.
These programs are unique because we dive deep and unpack all the steps and tools AND then apply them into your daily life. It is one thing to know something in our heads, in our brains, but quite another to actually APPLY IT! It takes the actual experience and the support of a coach who has gone through it to show you how to apply it, iron out the kinks, point out the sticky spots, all the while helping you move forward to your goals.
After working with Laurie her clients have reported back that “they never expected to be able to see how their decisions and the things that they were doing in their lives was actually keeping them stuck in the same pattern over and over again.”
They have told her that the things that used to bother them they don’t even think about anymore, it’s a total non issue,
They have said that “their relationships with their spouses have gone back to the newness they experienced when they were first married, over 20 years ago.” They never knew it could be that way again.
Others have stated “the clarity they received just from hearing their thoughts out loud, repeated back to them was both unexpected and transformational.”
Space is limited in these programs to ensure that each person has what they need to move forward.
During our call we'll discuss your vision and goals to determine the best way for me to support you going forward.
These programs are for you if:
You are sick and tired of being sick and tired of living your life on autopilot just going through the motions.
You know there is something more out there for you but you just aren’t sure what it is.
You want to jump out of bed excited about what your day has in store for you.
You want more time and more energy to do what you love.
You want to feel more present and connected in your home life and in your work life because you love your work too!
You are ready to do what it takes to live your best life.
You are ready and committed to taking steps forward to your goals and dreams!
This program isn’t going to be for you:
If you don’t believe that you are an amazing human being capable of doing great things in this life.

As well as the schedule for the group calls that will be held via Zoom (online video conferencing.)
I feel so blessed to have found Laurie and her BodyMind Coaching program when I did! I was expecting my first child and had been working in an industry that did not stimulate me or provide me with any fulfillment for almost 10 years! I needed a change but was held back my own fear and mental patterns of insecurity and doubt. Working with Laurie has allowed me to free myself from the guilt I felt about not being grateful for the job that I had and allowed me to embrace, discover, and BELIEVE that my passions are what I should be cultivating and that by doing so I will bring wealth and possibility into my life like I had never knew it could! Laurie's consistent support, encouragement, and insightful nature were invaluable in making this new mindset possible for me. I honestly can say that I am so excited about what the future holds for me!
