Drew Anne Wolfson, Wellness Coach specializing in Dating and Self-Compassion
I work with growth-minded individuals from different backgrounds who want to create authentic relationships with themselves and others, high-achievers who struggle with self-criticism, and successful professionals who desire more inner peace, connection, and ease in their dating lives. With an M.A. in Integrative Health Studies, training as a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, and training in Mindful Self-Compassion, Corporate Wellness, Guided Imagery, Meditation, and Ritual and Embodiment, I am continuously cultivating tools and techniques to support the human spirit. Through my training, coaching and teaching work, and firsthand personal experience, I have learned the power of mindfulness and compassion to help people become more present, peaceful, empowered, and content in their daily life.
In my work, I create a safe space for you to open up, gain clarity about yourself and your life, and develop self-care tools and resources to move you towards your goals. You will find that I am compassionate, non-judgmental, intuitive, direct, and honest in our sessions together. I will help you own your strengths, develop coping strategies, and respond in new ways to challenges in your life. While each coaching session may look different depending on your unique needs and goals, most sessions will include incisive questions, honest reflections, mindfulness & self-compassion meditations, and tools, activities, and resources to create more clarity, ease and fulfillment.
My soul purpose is to help individuals and groups love, accept and celebrate themselves and each other through embodiment of wellness and compassion. Ever since I was young, the spiritual and hidden aspects of life have always intrigued me. This passion drew me into studying practices such as meditation & mindfulness, earth-based rituals, feminine and masculine energy, compassion, and wellness coaching. I love supporting people in their unfolding; helping them learn to trust and support themselves physically, emotionally and spiritually in order to create a life where they feel connected and empowered. Coaching fulfills a deep desire of mine to support others on their path, while encouraging relationships that exude authenticity and presence. I am deeply devoted to personal metamorphosis, and think it is the greatest catalyst for profound societal change. I look forward to meeting you on your path, and supporting you in your transformation.

"I highly recommend the coaching services of Drew Anne Wolfson, MA, a master's-level health coach, who is also an expert in health promotion. She has a warm and gracious style, is a compassionate listener, and has been educated in the latest evidence-based techniques and methodologies in integrative health and complementary healing arts."
"Drew Anne is the embodiment of compassion. She creates a warm and welcoming space for transformation. She not only helped me see dating differently, but helped me take practical steps to do dating differently."
"I recently turned to coaching with Drew during a time in my life when I was unsure of whether a relationship I was in was still healthy. I had these feelings of uncertainty, and Drew was a patient listener, and asked me questions that helped me "let myself off the hook" from the guilt I felt. It really helped me to work through the situation with her."
