I value education deeply. I continually further my education, training & certifications to deepen my own skills. For example:
- Life & Success Coaching via Jay Shetty Certification School
- Trauma-informed Sensual Somatics Facilitation
I have my BFA in Acting from the University of Connecticut, plus have trained in NYC with some of the city's best teachers including Ken Schatz, Sheila Gray, Dave Dempke, & Seamus McNally.
Part of my certifications are in trauma-informed care. I will not coach out of my expertise, but I will make sure you are held safely in our containers together.

The feminine force is a creative, receptive portal.

Experience the deep, inner work that will take down the armor, unblock and soften the body, to become intimately connected to your life force.
Working with Cayla has been a wonderful experience. I was drawn to her because I felt a resonance with her creative yet strategic approach to coaching.
I was so impressed and grateful for her ability to be dynamic as our sessions often veered into unexpected territory based on the emotions that were coming up and the topics that were being discussed, and what was really relevant in my life at the time. I really appreciated Cayla's flexibility and ability to be dynamic and she always showed up fully. I felt her presence in every session, her follow-ups were incredibly supportive, she went above and beyond my expectations.
Cayla definitely exceeded my expectations in terms of her empathy and capacity to hold space and commitment to being present.
I felt very held in the container. I felt supported and encouraged, and I felt Cayla was a really wonderful resource, both in terms of the emotional aspects of what I was dealing with and moving through, as well as being just a vault of practical resources that helped me build my toolbox for what was needed in the next phase of my journey. I am so grateful to Cayla and highly recommend her coaching for any creative, open-hearted, open-minded woman looking for a partner and a space holder and a guide in that evolution.
Before working with Cayla I was filled with self-doubt. Working with her helped me to identify why I didn't trust myself and how to move past my fears of following my artistic calling.
Fast forward a few months and I just played a major music festival and am in the best relationship of my life. Even more importantly, I trust myself to make the right decisions to keep me on my artistic path.
Thank you, Cayla!!
When I had my first coaching session with Cayla, I was stuck in a relationship that I thought I couldn't get out of. I lived somewhere I hated (rural Virginia); I was doing daily, exhausting battle with my stagnant, all-but-dead writing career. It had been years since I felt any freedom, possibility, romance, or creativity. I all but forgot those things existed.
Then I started working with Cayla. It only took a few sessions to shake me out of that quicksand. Now, I live in a place I LOVE (Lima, Peru); I've found a relationship that absolutely fills me with sparks, and my writing allows me to live a life of travel and freedom and joy that I thought was only possible in movies.
By blending coaching with sensual somatic embodiment journeys and meditation practices, women in my online community called "The Matchbox" deepen their creativity and vision to be receptive for that "big idea" to strike like a lightning bolt.
I love-love being a coach. It's my passion and my purpose.
If I had known as a child that coaching was a career path, I would have told you that's what I wanted to be when I grow up. Asking deep questions to guide you to clarity, deep trust, and aligned action is my art form. I am honored to coach clients into their next elevation as artistic leaders creating a ripple-effect that changes the world.
