Hi, I'm Annie
Certified Integrative Wellness Coach
Most of my clients are female students, young professionals and moms who are suffering from stress, anxiety and overwhelm. I help them by creating awareness and accountability while identifying behavior changes, and teaching stress management techniques.
One of the things that I’m proud to say that sets me apart from others in the industry is my education:
My undergraduate in Psychology and minor in Sociology taught me about cognitive, developmental, behavioral, social and clinical psychology. My bachelor’s degree gave me a broad understanding of human behavior.
My graduate degree in Integrative Wellness Coaching allowed me to master the art and science of coaching. I was able to learn and utilize evidence-based approaches that help clients with lifestyle and behavior modifications.
My certifications in Life & Success Coaching, Emotional Freedom Technique, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time Technique and Clinical Hypnotherapy prepared me to coach in different modalities to serve my clients specific needs, as opposed to having a standardized approach.

Frequently asked questions
What is integrative wellness coaching?
One of my favorite texts from my graduate studies was a book titled “How to be a Health Coach” by Dr. Meg Jordan. I loved her definition of integrative wellness coaching so much that I’m going to quote her:
What type of clients do you serve?
What struggles do your clients have?
What techniques do you use in your practice?
What about other techniques?
Some areas that I am not an expert in, but recommend to clients are: acupuncture, aromatherapy, reiki, traditional Chinese medicine, biofeedback, and massage therapy.
Why do you care about stress management?
Now, more than ever, people desperately want: to feel empowered and supported with their lifestyle, help with changing unwanted behaviors and you guessed it….help managing their stress.
What exactly is stress?
What should I expect from working with a coach like you?
Why should I trust you?
Where are you located?
I live in San Diego, CA but coach virtually. I use video programs such as FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, Google Meets and WhatsApp to communicate with my clients.
