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
Life takes each of us on quite an interesting journey; full of ups and downs, and twists and turns. Over the years we find ourselves at the mercy of challenges, big decisions and unexpected choices, leading us down paths that we can only imagine. It is incredible to look back on one's journey and see how the path unfolded in ways we would never have expected. As a wellness coach working with teens and young entering the exciting, yet sometimes difficult, stage of adulthood, it is a joy to walk along side them as they connect to their deeper selves and begin to explore future possibilities.
Becoming a wellness coach has been an interesting and unexpected journey for me. Personal struggles as an adolescent, combined with formative educational and professional experiences, drive my passion, and set the foundation for my work 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 personal wellness also grew, as I learned to better care for my body and mind while studying yoga and meditation.
…. With a passion for understanding human learning and development, I completed graduate degrees in both Educational Psychology and School Psychology and spent many years working with teens within the public schools system . The best part of my career has been helping students recognize their strengths and learn valuable tools to support their academic and emotional growth. I have expertise in cognition, learning theory, behavior change, motivation, and social and emotional development. I have worked with a wide range of young people including those with various learning challenges.
.... As a Colorado mom of three (almost grown) children, I decided to leave the schools 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 bring a broad range of academic knowledge, professional expertise, and personal experience to my practice, and am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a client’s journey into adulthood. It is a joy to see my clients deepen their understanding of themselves, learn to see challenges as opportunities for growth, and develop habits that support their academic success and overall health and wellbeing.
"I was feeling really stressed about whether or not to stay in college and wasn't sleeping well, and was having a hard time getting motivated. Coaching helped me make a plan and feel better about making some decisions, and also helped me learn to manage my stress better."
"Even across a computer screen Yvette felt present and helpful to me. She helped me break seemingly daunting tasks into smaller steps that I could complete. I also developed some new and healthy small habits including exercise and cutting down on screen time, and taking the time to be creative. Yvette not only listened to my life challenges, she helped me find solutions to them."
"I am beyond grateful for your work with RN. I have watched from the sidelines really lean into the work she has been doing to make some changes. These habits are sticking which is so cool. I can't thank you enough."
