Meet the Founder
Meet Dori - Your Breathing, Wellness Coach
My journey toward becoming a Certified Health Coach and Certified Breathwork Facilitator has evolved organically over time. I haven’t always been on this wellness journey. In fact, in my “past life”, I worked in the Financial Services Industry in Marketing and Communications.
While living in NYC, I had worked my way up to Divisional Vice President and from there moved to Boston, MA, where I found myself overly stressed due to combining major life changes into a short period of time, enduring a long commute and working hard to feel successful. In 2008, a colleague recommended that I explore the healing powers of reiki and from there my wellness journey and interest in exploring healing modalities began.
Fast forward to January 2017 while being a stay-at-home mom and experiencing my own transformation, I began leading weight loss groups and helping others achieve their weight loss goals. In 2019 without much hesitation, I decided to further my education and pursue a certification in Health Coaching from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and then in 2022 become a Certified Trauma Informed Breathwork Facilitator through Pause Breathwork. This gives clients a result driven, transformative combination of health, nutrition and breathwork.
I am passionate about helping others heal, being a supportive mentor, and working with clients to reach their wellness goals through group, one-on-one and personalized encouragement. Through this collaboration, we can find the lifestyle practices that work best for you.

MORE ABOUT ME:
June 2009 After enjoying the Japanese art of Reiki personally for some time, I decided to become certified in Level I and shortly thereafter Level II.
November 2016 I enrolled in a 12 Week Be Awesome Guided Meditation Training course where I learned how to lead guided mediations that focused on self - awareness, guided imagery, self-love, partnership and oneness on earth. I employ these and many other tools needed to participate in, lead and get the most out of individual and group guided meditation sessions.
December of 2016 I successfully completed an Intensive Weight Loss Coach Training Course held at Montclair State University. The training covers Low Glycemic Impact eating, Body Composition, Science Based supplementation and weight loss.
January 2017 I began leading weight loss groups which include weekly one-on-one accountability calls, Face-to-Face meetings as needed, daily motivation,
daily recipes and group interaction through Facebook.
January 2020 I successfully completed a 40-week intensive Certified
Health Coach course at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) based in New York City. I am now a Certified Health Coach.
April 2022 I completed an 8-week High Impact Coaching Course.
October 2022 I successfully completed the Pause Trauma Informed
Breathwork Facilitator Training Certification. I am now a Trauma Informed Breathwork Facilitator.
