THRIVE Retreats
New England Coastal Calm

October 1st - 4th, 2021 ⏐ Little Compton, RI

Immersive Wellness Experience

Calm your mind and your body,

connect with your purpose and bond with a community of  like-minded women

Untitled design (6).png

That’s why you can do ALL the things - spa treatments, Netflix, lunch with friends - and still feel as stressed as when you started!


Because no matter how much time or money you spend on relaxation, it can’t take hold if your mental chatter is on overdrive.

But when you give yourself the time and space to get back on your feet — to truly heal — what you find in that stillness will change your life.

Relaxation is so much more than just something to do.
It’s a way of being.

Self compassion. Pleasure. Beauty. Peace.
Connection to a higher power.

Jump to:






Four days. No obligations or distractions.

A quiet spot on the New England coast, chef-prepared meals, and curated activities to nourish your mind, body, and spirit.


And most special of all - the deep connection and sacred community where like-minded women hold space for one another.

You’ll go home with a clear mind, full heart, and know-how to cultivate calm in your everyday life.

What do you say? Will you join me?


Rest. De-stress. Connect


And learn practical tools to sustain that beautiful sense of calm long after the retreat and into your everyday life. Because we need it now more than ever!

I’m offering this curated experience at this exact moment for a reason. 


I want to support you in claiming the time and space to come back to yourself - and unlocking the confidence and self compassion to keep the momentum going.


It’s an investment in yourself - and if you’ve been struggling, it’s one you can’t afford NOT to make. 


Well, I’ve got you covered.

  • Post-retreat virtual gathering to further incorporate all you’ve learned and reconnect with the group.



Set just steps from the Atlantic Ocean, our home away from home is known locally as The Big House - a traditional New England beach house with a breezy California feel.


Newly renovated by a former creative director for Pottery Barn, the decor is high-end but incredibly inviting. It offers lovely gathering spaces around the stone fire pit, sprawling lawn, and wraparound porch.


The property offers cozy, bright accommodations with options for private or shared bedrooms. Rooms have breathtaking views and sounds of crashing waves.


It’s an intimate venue perfect for our small group! The house offers just enough privacy while still allowing us to get to know each other and share a truly special experience.

October 1 - 4, 2021 

Little Compton, RI


Little Compton on Rhode Island’s south coast feels like a secret hideaway.

It’s not far from Boston or the bustling scene in Newport — but it’s off the beaten path just enough that you get everything you want from a quaint coastal town, minus the crowds.


Unspoiled beaches stretch for miles, peppered with dramatic cliffs and swaying grass. The Sakonnet River is lined with local organic farms, hiking trails, and wildlife. And no matter where you are, there’s always an ocean breeze. 


If it’s serenity you’re seeking, you’ll find it here. 


I can feel my shoulders loosening up just thinking about it!

COVID Protocol


(subject to change)

Friday, October 1

Guests will arrive in the late afternoon and have time to settle in before we gather for a welcome reception, and watch the sunset over the water. Chef Lauren will serve our group a lovely plant-based meal, and we’ll gather around the fire pit to set intentions for the weekend before turning in for the night.

COVID Precautions


This is a retreat focusing on wellness - and I’m taking that to heart by making sure I’m taking precautions to keep everyone well.


I understand that making travel plans during COVID isn’t a decision to make lightly. Your safety is my #1 priority. So here’s what I’m doing to keep this retreat as safe as possible:


  1. Requiring that all participants show proof of a negative PCR COVID test 72 hours prior to the retreat start - regardless of vaccination status (Tests are totally free, easy, and fast at the CVS drive thru!)

  2. Hiring professional cleaners to fully disinfect the venue prior to our arrival

  3. Clearly outlining sanitation protocols for support staff and retreat guests

  4. Conducting many activities outdoors, as weather allows

  5. Keeping the retreat size exceptionally small

  6. Staying apprised of updated state and federal recommendations, and making changes as needed


In the event you do test positive prior to arrival, you can transfer your payment to a future retreat or transfer your spot to another participant with no penalty. Because you know I’m always curating amazing retreat experiences, both locally and internationally!


I’m happy to answer any questions you may have, so please don’t hesitate to reach out!

This retreat is for you if you...


  • Are ready to make changes to your habits and mindset to improve your quality of life

  • Are comfortable with emotional vulnerability - your own and others’

  • Are looking for meaningful connection and lasting friendships

  • Enjoy fresh, plant-based cuisine

 I could go on and on about how phenomenal this retreat is (and go into plenty more detail in the FAQ section) — but I’ll tell you something you need to know even more...

If this trip is calling to you, it’s for a reason. Aren’t you dying to know what it is?

The universe works in mysterious ways. It brings people together at the right time for the right reasons. 


I’m honored to hold the space for those special connections and inspiring shifts to happen.


There is SO much magic to be experienced at the Coastal Calm Retreat, and some amazing women to share it with.


Join us!


I’d love to tell you more about the retreat and answer any questions you might have. 

  • Why would I hire a coach?
    If you want to make changes in your life, whether it be losing 10 pounds, starting a new career, or being a more patient person, working with someone to provide support and accountability is always beneficial. Coaching provides that support. If you need help identifying changes you want to make in your life, are at a crossroads and cannot decide which road to take, or want more time, peace and joy in your life (Yes, these are the benefits of coaching!) coaching could help you. As a coach, I will: provide accountability and support; challenge and push you to be the amazing person you are; help you move forward with the changes you want to make in your life; see you accomplish your goals
  • What are the benefits of your coaching?
    According to my clients, coaching: teaches them to live in the present moment bringing greater peace in their lives; helps them find more time by prioritizing where their time is spent; decreases stress as they evaluate and make choices about what brings happiness and fulfillment; fosters more patience and a sense of wellbeing as they learn to take care of themselves by making their own needs a priority.
  • I'm super-busy! How can I fit coaching into my already packed schedule?
    I get it. From my own experience as a mom of three as well as talking to other mothers, I know the number one challenge we face is not having enough time. You need to look at coaching as an investment in yourself and your happiness. You are worth the time and effort it takes to move toward living the life you want to live. All of my personalized coaching is done over the phone during school hours, which means you can do it from your home at your convenience. And, no travel time! My coaching starts with two 45-minute discovery calls, after which we will schedule three 30-minute calls per month.
  • How long does coaching last?
    That’s really up to you, but my experience shows it takes at least three months to make changes that will stick. No fleeting New Years resolutions happening here!
  • You mentioned accountability. Does that mean I'll have homework?
    Your only homework will be the work you need to do to get closer to your goals. Finding more time in your day is always one of my coaching goals, so I will not assign any unnecessary work. I know how precious every second is, they will not be wasted.
  • What if something unexpected happens in my life and I can't continue with the coaching?
    I know that life happens. If you need to curtail our sessions, we can tie up any loose ends and I will refund any unused sessions.
  • What is the difference between therapy and coaching?
    Coaching is about moving toward the life you want to live, not analyzing why things are the way they are. It’s inevitable, however, that during our conversations emotions may surface. Emotions are energy and moving that energy through you so you can move on is healing. If you or I feel that you need a trained therapist at any point, I can help you find the right person.
  • Are you trained as a coach?
    Yes. I trained with the Coaches Training Institute,, the number one coaching training school in the country. CTI has one of the most rigorous coaches training program in the world. Through my CTI training, I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach.
  • I'm not really sure what I want to be coached on. What will we cover?
    Initially, I will ask you to complete a client questionnaire. This will help you determine what you want to get out of coaching; I have plenty of exercises to get the juices flowing. Our first two calls will involve reviewing your questionnaire and doing some visioning work. We will then move on to coaching on a topic of your choice. Don’t worry about coming up with a topic – I have never had a client with that dilemma. If needed, we can always revisit your questionnaire and look a little deeper.
  • Does being a coach mean you have all the answers?
    Absolutely not! You are the expert on your life. Through coaching I provide a different perspective to help you learn more about yourself – what makes you happy, what you want out of life. Only YOU have the answers to those questions. My job is to get you thinking, lead you through thought-provoking exercises, support your efforts and hold you accountable to reach your desired goals.
  • Is coaching confidential?
    Yes, absolutely. Any conversations we have are strictly confidential.
  • Are there topics you don't cover?
    My coaching focuses on you and what you want from your life. If you are looking for a direct and explicit focus on parenting skills, my coaching may not be right for you. However, if we identify improving your parenting skills as one of your goals, we can work together to find the right person to work with you on that specific goal. My focus is on you. While our work will certainly improve lots of areas for your family, our focus will be on you and your goals.
  • When are you available for coaching calls?
    My coaching hours are school hours. I have identified that limiting my work time to the hours that my children are at school works best in our world. As a result, most of my clients are stay-at-home moms that are available during that time of the day. As long as you are available via phone during the day, we can come up with a time that works!
