For my clients to realize their unique potential, see challenges as opportunities to learn and grow, and gain effective habits and tools
to support lifelong success and wellbeing.
Yvette Morton EdS, MA, NBC-HWC
Taking care of our overall health and wellness can be challenging at times. Managing work, academic and personal responsibilities, dealing with stress and overwhelm, taking care of your physical health, figuring out your interests and goals is a lot, and sometimes you just need a little extra support.
My own health and wellness challenges set the foundation for my coaching practice today. Diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at the age of 14, I found myself unmotivated, in pain, lacking energy, disorganized, losing confidence as a student, and unsure of my future. Fortunately, caring adults helped me discover my strengths, develop the habits that I needed to support my wellbeing, and encouraged me as I found my path forward. Those years were hard, but I wouldn’t change them.
.... After college I developed a passion for working with adolescents and spent 7 years supporting at-risk youth and students with special needs in public education, while also beginning graduate school. My interest in wellness also grew and I learned to better care for my body and mind, while studying yoga and meditation.
…. I completed graduate degrees in both Educational Psychology and School Psychology and spent 8 years as a school psychologist. The best part of my job was helping students recognize their strengths and learn valuable tools to support their academic and emotional growth.
.... As a Colorado mom of three (almost grown) children, I left the schools after my youngest was born and began to further my education in the wellness industry. I have been teaching yoga and mindfulness based classes for over 10 years, and am a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) supporting adolescent, young adult and adult clients in both private and corporate settings.
I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a client’s journey as they deepen their understanding of themselves, learn to see challenges as opportunities for growth, and develop the habits and tools to feel confident to move through life with confidence, health and wellbeing.
