Hey!  I’m Heather.

I help emerging coaches like you go from lacking the skills, confidence, and credibility that hold you back to mastering the research-supported traditional and intuitive coaching skills that transform you into a category-of-one coach, with the business acumen you need to create lasting success and financial freedom own your own terms.

I founded Atmana Academy because the support and training I desperately needed when I first started out didn’t exist.

After Surviving a Year Illness That Unlocked My Intuitive Abilities & Almost Took My Life…

I was crystal clear about 1 thing:


My mission is to put intuitive life coaching on the map as the most powerful form of transformation and coaching available today.

Starry Eyed and Super Hopeful… 

I opened my practice in 2014.

I made every mistake in the book, from investing in over-priced mentors to lack-luster coach-in-a-box courses that did nothing but drain my spirit and bank account. 

Also, I was terrified to “come out” as an intuitive coach because I didn’t have the research to back up or explain the awesome power of my intuitive work. 

Determined to put intuitive-focused coaching on the map…

as a legitimate and powerful coaching modality, I spent three years meticulously honing in on my method and scouring the research to support and substantiate it.

In 2017, I went to graduate school to earn a masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. 

My mission was to blend the best of the mainstream and spiritual healing paradigms together into one comprehensive training experience that didn’t exist in the world – until now.

Atmana is the First
Life Coach Training Academy

that formally integrates intuition into the coaching process using research-based methods that are in alignment with the highest coaching standards offered today.


My corporate and private coaching experience spans

over 20 years.

I am PCC certified with the ICF, and my academic research in human cognition, mindfulness, and self-care has been presented at the top psychological conferences in the country.

My work has been featured in prestigious publications like Spirituality & Health Magazine, Mind Body Green, and Best Self Magazine.

I was awarded the cover of Brainz Magazine in 2021, and featured as a CREA Awards winner for excellence in entrepreneurial success and dedication to helping others.

Today, Atmana is a thriving 7-figure international training company with hundreds of certified coaches spanning 5 continents.


How to Create a Successful, Soul-Guided Practice is Clear to Me.

My purpose at Atmana is to help you fully live yours as a professional intuitive life coach.
