Louise Finlayson, PhD.

Transformational Coach

Are You Ready for Transformation? 

With a direct, firm, and supportive approach, I will help you shed your old, self-defeating stories and behaviors. If you’re ready to do the work needed to grow and change, I will hold the space for you to do just that. Your success depends on it. 

My mission is to help you become who you truly are so you can express the gifts that you uniquely bring to the world.


For over 25 years now, I’ve helped people like you create lasting transformation to live happier, healthier, more fulfilled lives though psychotherapy, coaching, and retreats. 

Having earned a doctorate in clinical psychology from Michigan State University, I went on to complete a three-year fellowship in clinical psychology at Harvard Medical School. I also believe in the power of meditation and teachings from ancient traditions and use both freely in my practice.  

Blending current research with ancient wisdom to bring you the most permanent and direct path to creating true transformation results in being able to provide a well-rounded approach.

My Approach

Using a framework of universal principles and effective practices, you will learn the principles and practices of conscious living so you can live a vibrant, fulfilling life. 

I can quickly sense what is holding you back so we can get down to work creating the paradigm shift you need in order to get where you want to go.  

What does that mean for you?  

  • You will learn to live a conscious life in alignment with your values, passions, and purpose. 
  • You’ll wake up excited in the morning and go to bed with peace.  
  • You’ll learn to navigate change and transitions with less stress. 
  • The little things in life won’t annoy you as much.  
  • You’ll learn to get past whatever is holding you back from living your best life.  
  • You’ll start living a life that really feels like it belongs to you.
