Growing Forward

Certified Personal Coach, Licensed Holistic / Mental Health Counselor, Program Developer, Author Lauri Maynard, MA, LMHC, CPC

"It is my mission to help people wake up to who they really are. Underneath all that we think we know is a vast wealth of potential just waiting to be realized. Science is tapping into it, spiritual leaders are talking about it and the arts are expressing it. It is there for all of us. No matter who you are, or what you are going through, you have an inner wisdom that knows what you need and can point you in the right direction of finding out what to do next."

Lisa Fontanella

Author, Jewelry Designer, Coach, Reiki Master Lisa Fontanella

Lisa Fontanella loves writing and rocks. Lisa has used every opportunity to write. From stories, magazine and newspaper articles, to newsletters and promotional materials. And recently, the proud author of the award-winning children’s chapter book, Crystal’s Quest: An Adventure into the World of Gemstones and the You ROCK! Journal and Coloring Book. A wannabe rock-hound, Lisa loves learning about rocks, their properties and feeling their energy. What better way to blend two things she loves – write a children’s book about rocks! Lisa’s fascination with rocks has taken on many forms, much like the rocks she holds so dear. She creates hand-made concrete plaques, jewelry using gemstones, writes stories for children about the wonders of rocks, and gets so excited when she sees a type of rock she has never seen before. Lisa is a Reiki master, holistic practitioner and certified Life Coach. Lisa lives in New England and loves being near the water whether it be the ocean, river, lake, pond, or puddle.

Authentic Life Journey

Reiki Master, E-RYT 500, LMT Ramona Crabtree-Falkner

Ramona Crabtree-Falkner began her wellness career with massage therapy, but this was simply a gateway to a deeper understanding of how to help others. As a massage therapist for 15 years she found a desire to explore other modalities to hold space for her clients to find more ease and healing from within. Through her own struggles with health and stress induced chronic pain she turned to yoga, meditation, energy work and life coaching to connect to her own healing and found through each of these explorations more ease and peace in life. Finding these practices to be of great benefit to her life with a strong vision to help others, Ramona developed the Authentic Life Journey programs and has now found a path that truly speaks to her truths of wanting to help others grow, heal and find ease and peace. Ramona offers Group Life Coaching, Private Life Coaching, 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training , Group Yoga, Private Yoga, Reiki, Crystal Bowls Meditations, Workshops and Retreats.

Marlisa McLaughlin

Integrative Health Professional, Certified Yoga Instructor Certified Biofield Tuning Practitioner, Educator, Program Developer Marlisa McLaughlin

I’m passionate about facilitating sound and stable shifting that leads to supportive change. Having specialized in Energy Work over the last three decades, my integrative approach includes a vast range of accessible, heart nourishing perspectives and techniques that lead to a lighter, richer, fuller sense of being. My energetic approach applied to my recent focus on the grieving experience awakened me to the possibility of vibrancy while grieving. When we’re able to invite an energetic approach into our living experiences—no matter how intense-- we become more energized and empowered. I’m here to help identify and assist in the release of blocked energy that prevents us from feeling whole and connected.
