I love helping my clients discover and activate their own inner knowing and being present with them as they explore new modes of communication, intimacy and healthy love. Together we uncover what they need, how to ask for it with ease and create the kind of relationship they most desire while staying out of judgment, blame and shame.
I've taken huge risks and giant leaps of faith on my journey through life; from surviving brain surgery as a teenager, to receiving a scholarship at a leading dance academy in New York City where I moved to at the tender age of 21 with $600 in my pocket and no job.
We cannot change others - we can only change ourselves through discovering our patterns, the shame stories that drive our fears and how to embrace and then replace them. I moved to California where I found my path into the wellness industry through training in Reiki Mastery and Massage Therapy. This led me to a career coaching a team of over 60 massage therapists for a well known luxury spa.
With over 20 years and 1000+ hours schooling in coaching, health and wellness, I have gained extensive training in leadership, personal accountability, goal setting, discovering and developing character strengths and compassionate communication. As a certified catalyst coach, I will guide you in identifying and changing negative, recurring patterns and reduce anxiety using easy-to-learn tools.
You will learn how to easily replace unwanted behaviors with healthy ones. This will allow you to gain deeper intimacy with your partner, set healthy boundaries, and engage in conflict without fear, blame or shame. I have a unique ability to unwrap the stories that block your journey, get to the heart of an issue, create safe space in which to shine a light on it and help you see what else is possible. I enjoy writing about the vagaries of daily life with an eye toward the lighter side of things and shooting my bow in the back canyons while hawks play on updrafts.
"Grace is an absolutely superb coach who supported me through a difficult transition in my life. She helped me to create a vision, set and enforce boundaries, as well as to create a manageable action plan that resulted in more clarity, confidence and direction. I find Grace to be empathetic, motivational, insightful, and extremely wise. She is also very intuitive and knows exactly when to cheer, when to console, when to clarify, and when to challenge me. She is an authentic listener who enabled me to uncover and sure up my blindsides while assisting me to discover and realize more of my potential. I am extremely happy to have found Grace Getzen and thank her for the profound growth she's helped me to unlock in both my life and career. In short, Grace has supported me to become a better version of myself that has led to more happiness, fulfillment and success!" -Mark L.
"After my first session with Grace, we established an immediate game plan for my new career. We talked for an hour discussing things that were challenging me and coming up with immediate solutions. After our talk, I felt super motivated and mentally energetic instead of lost and directionless. It's such a great feeling seeing how much I'm accomplishing in such a short time. When I look back I see how life enhancing the benefits of coaching with Grace has been. She is a true professional in every way and have no doubt she will be able to help you on your way to finding the life you want." -Cindy M.
"The word that comes up for me is ACTION. Struggling through a few difficulties in my life both personally and professionally. We often know that we need to do something but it is not always clear what we need to do. Grace guided me to complete clarity and then helped to create the action plan to get me moving. I have worked with various coaches in the past but never have I written a review because never before have I seen such positive results from a coach. Grace listened to what I had to say, pointed out my missing pieces, motivated me through the difficulties and now I am about to get exactly what I want." -Karen C.
"I met Grace two months ago. She is a very skilled massage therapist. I have all kinds of beck, shoulder and back issues and was only able to sleep two hours continuously at night. After our first session, I slept for six hours. It was nothing short of miraculous after years of sleeplessness. Since then, I have gotten to know her as a person. She is a very good life coach. She accepts my way of doing things, giving me suggestions on how to improve on 'my way'. Her suggestions on how to deal with life and the problematic people in mine really work. Having Grace in all the different roles in my life have really enriched it. She is generous with her time and her advice. With all the people in the world who care only about what we pay them, Grace is a reaffirmation of the goodness in humanity." -Jaqueline S.
"Grace is an incredible Life Coach and has helped me in all areas of my life, including setting healthy boundaries and regaining my inner empowerment. This was particularly difficult for me to conquer and talk about but I felt supported and cheered on to move forward. I appreciate her compassion and empathetic nature to listen without judgement while providing useful feedback. I also like that she prompts a "take away" of what you feel you gained after a session. Grace is clear, precise, and really holds a safe space. I would recommend her services to anyone who feels stuck and needs an extra push to reach your goals."
