I’ve had a wonderfully unique life growing up in Toronto, New York, and Paris. At 17, I fell in love with meditation which took me to India where I discovered a life-long love of spirituality. I finished high school there, and went on to graduate from Boston University with a degree in Journalism. I worked as a reporter/ producer for “The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour,” “Extra!,” “The Roseanne Show,” and Court TV, and then transitioned into story development at a film production company in Los Angeles.
While living in Hollywood, I lost my way, getting caught up in ‘people, places and things,’ by looking for happiness in all the wrong experiences. When I hit rock bottom, I had to rebuild a better version of myself so that I could cope with life on life’s terms. I learned to lean into me, instead of always seeking outside solutions and fixes. I worked hard at changing my thinking, my negative behaviors and patterning, so I could own a new way of being at every level of my life. I sought out mentors, healers, spiritualists and a tribe of people to grow and learn alongside. This path of healing opened me up to a deeply fulfilling daily spirituality that even today, many years later, is practical, exciting and ever-expanding. I made a commitment to learning many modalities of healing and putting my personal growth above all else, so I could become a better mother, daughter, friend and woman in the world.
This journey led me to working with other women, and helping them heal from toxic relationships, drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, codependence, low self-esteem and ultimately, a lack of self-love – passing on to them what I was learning to heal in myself. I became a mentor, assisting women in recreating their lives and thriving in them. And in so doing, I discovered a passion for helping others, while I solidified my own commitment to growing and changing.
A few years later, I become certified as Life Coach through the International Coaching Federation – the only governing body for coaches. As a coach, I help guide clients in discovering the sweet spot in their lives. Life coaching reveals where someone wants to go and gives them the roadmap for getting there, thorough some specific and proven processes. I’m also a Spiritual Mentor, who for over a decade, has been supporting clients in finding a deeply fulfilling, practical spirituality – which gives meaning and a sense of purpose to everything else. I also became certified as Meditation Teacher (200 hour Teacher Training), because I encourage all my clients to meditate daily for inner stability and a deeper connection to themselves – and I show them how. I’m a Certified Hypnotherapist through the National Guild of Hypnotists. As a hypnotherapist, I help clients affect lasting change by working with the all-powerful subconscious mind (which runs 95% of our lives). Together, we uncover blocks and limiting beliefs hidden in the subconscious that have unknowingly held them back. Realigning mind, body and spirit so they can move forward and manifest intentionally and with clarity of vision. I use all of these modalities to help a client move into alignment and find their center. From that place of true power, they can create the life they want to be living with abundance, love and purpose.
I speak at corporate retreats, do private workshops such as “Stepping Into Your Purpose,” “The Work/Life Balance,” “Finding Your Center;” as well as write mind/body/spirit articles for Kourtney Kardashian’s lifestyle website Poosh.

Ryan is one of those rare voices that speaks to her clients in a way that truly honors the person’s spirit, intentions, and life goals. She infuses her sessions with grounding inner wisdom along with practical and motivating next steps.

Having stumbled upon Ryan’s article on poosh.com was a blessing! Ryan was fast to response on my interest for hypnosis and coaching. Her precise and perfect articulation on her feedback when we dialogue is on point. She gets me. My experience with Ryan’s hypnosis is nothing less than amazing. I have had hypnosis done in the past with other practitioners, however Ryan’s calm, clear yet firm delivery during our session (online) works very for well for me. Living in Bali allows me to meet and experience an array of professionals and healers, Ryan is gifted with a good balance of spirituality, intellect and feminine energy. Trust was instant with her.

I’ve known for years that I wanted to do more than I was doing. I was never really able to move forward with any of it because of a self-imposed block. Ryan helped me to pinpoint my blocks, create goals and establish easy steps towards executing and launching a business that I’m sure I never would’ve done otherwise. I’d still be thinking maybe one day I’ll do it. Today I’ve stumbled upon different opportunities and I have a great deal more confidence as a result. Ryan is sensitive to who you are, what you bring to the table, starting off with simple goal-making, offering effective methods to create a plan and steps of execution while really encouraging you to be accountable and positive with your progress and accomplishments.

My time with Ryan has been unparalleled to any other therapy I have experienced in the
past. As a young widow and a recent Breast Cancer survivor, I came to Ryan feeling a
deep sense of loss and fear. While I had such gratitude for the many wonderful things
that were present in my life, Ryan was able to activate a renewed sense of spirit and
self confidence in me. She has a unique ability to quickly access what is creating an
imbalance and she swiftly addresses and helps repair by tapping into her various
coaching modalities. Ryan has a warm, compassionate, and nonjudgmental
approach that makes me feel safe and empowered. Thank you, Ryan, for putting me in
the arena where my best self shines and where I have certainty that I am living the
amazing life meant just for me.

Hypnosis is a marvelous tool for deep and smooth transformation. The most important thing for for me, is the person you choose to do it with. Makes the entire difference. And yes, IT WORKS. I’ve had the privilege to work with Ryan, and let me tell you, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. She puts so much love in each session, her heart is wide open so she can hear more than your words. Her willingness to help you connect to your true power to achieve your goals is so powerful. You know you can reach the state you are looking for. So if you are ready to roar, vibrate in love and transcend your mind’s obstacles, work with Ryan! You will thank me.
Enjoy the ride.

I was looking for a spiritual coach to work with me and guide me back to my inner self.
Running my own business had slowly steered me out of my normal daily routine of meditation, exercise and healthy eating as well as now finding myself dealing with a new level of stress that was beginning to overwhelm me and bring out old habits that I wanted to change.
Literally after my first coaching session with Ryan I felt this immense feeling of calm come over my body and my mind felt clearer. I felt light and was smiling with a renewed sense of energy and positivity.
Following on from coaching I experienced my first ever hypnotherapy session of which again I felt completely relaxed and safe. Ryan is an incredibly calming soul and has a very gentle nature which allowed me to completely trust her and go into this state of deep relaxation, we worked on some inner child work and it brought so much love into my heart, I cannot wait to continue this journey with Ryan. I feel as though I was meant to meet Ryan.
My children have noticed a big difference in my relaxed non-stressed state after only two sessions, I feel I am back on the right path in my life again which is why I reached out to Ryan, to gently steer me back to my spirituality and to remember to do all things from a place of love. Ryan thank you for opening up your heart and soul for me to rediscover my true self.
