I am Ivy Walker, a Certified Nature Connected Coach. Through deep listening, powerful questioning, and motivating exercises, my focus is to empower and support my clients to make the changes they desire or reach the goals they want to achieve. As a professional coach, I :
I have a never ending curiosity about partnering with nature, creativity and the power of the mind to empower individuals. These are powerful means to connect clients with their true purpose and resiliency. I recently (June 2017) completed the requirements for my credential of Associate Certified Coach (ACC) granted through the International Coaching Federation (ICF). This credential ensures that a coach has completed at least 100 hours of coaching clients, is committed to the ICF Standards and Ethics for professional coaching and has a thorough understanding of the components of the coaching process.
For my certification as a Nature Connected Coach, I completed 317 coach specific training hours through Earth Based Institute in Boulder, CO. This coaching program is approved by the ICF. I also have a Master's in Painting and Drawing from the University of Colorado at Boulder. As a practicing artist for over 20 years, I bring a creative sensitivity to the artmaking and conversations in sessions. The metaphors and artistic actions that arise in a session add a deep level of clarity to the process. My work is additionally informed by graduate studies in the Ecopsychology Masters program at Naropa University.

"Ivy is one of the most genuine humans I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. She really shows up for me every time we talk by listening deeply and intently. She reflects my language and energy very effectively. Her energy is calm and gentle; I feel as if I'm in a very safe space sharing myself with Ivy. I especially love her creativity and ability to bring that into our sessions."
