Jason Hanson (he/him/his)

Transformational Coach

Hi! My name is Jason. I walk with people as they navigate trials of life by holding space for transformation. I possess a rare equal balance of masculine and feminine energy that allows me to bridge between the “doing” and “being” of life’s most crucial moments. 

Working with me, you will learn how to tap into 100,000 years of ancestral data to make better choices on tough decisions. You will learn how to listen to your body’s YES and NO and cut through fear of the unknown. In a world where it’s increasingly difficult to know what’s real, I offer body intelligence tools to access signals that will give you a competitive advantage. I will be the mirror that shows that all your answers are already inside of you. 

I spent 20 years in technology before shifting to coaching full-time after my own near-death experience. Allow me to share the hard-earned lessons that nearly killed me so you can skip some of the painful parts of arriving fully in your genius. xo

Barry Kerr, S.A., AEH

Hendricks Life and Relationship Coach, Advanced Energy Healer, Astrologer

Many coaching services attempt to help you improve your career and relationships without giving you the opportunity to heal, grow and transform existing layers of your life. I believe that even with good coaching, you are only able to create and manifest from your current level of consciousness and I recognize that personal healing and transformation is an essential component of the coaching process. I’m trained in many playful, intuitive and sacred tools, including energy healing, Hendricks practices, astrology and much more. I also work with my partner, Kristine Gay, a psychotherapist and Hendricks Coach. Together we have over 60 years of healing/teaching/coaching experience.

Suzanne Kilkus, PhD, LMFT

Relationship and Body-Centered Coach

Committed relationship gives us an everyday opportunity to live fully, mature into our best selves, and open to love’s gifts with increasing enjoyment.  Sometimes the teacher first arrives as pain and struggle. I know it’s possible to create everyday happiness and joy in your relationship and life.  I’ve learned this over 30 years of practice and my 45 year marriage. Working with me involves being willing to change, learning new skills, and taking responsibility for what you bring to your relationships. I coach and guide couples to stop blaming each other and themselves so that your energy can be spent on solving the issues and creating the relationship you most want. Some changes can happen quickly, some take more time. You will be invited to use curiosity and wonder rather than blame and judgment. You will learn what to pay attention to, how to say what you need to say, listen to what you need to listen to, and reconnect to each other in ways that are good for each person and good for your relationship.
