Shelby Shankland, LCC, RP II

As a Life Coach, my vision is to help others to become more focused, intentional, and mindful as they walk their path in life. My goal is for you to learn to recognize and wield your own power and wisdom, and to follow your heart. This is the key to a fulfilled and happy life. Lead with your heart - that still and quiet voice, and you can never go wrong. Those tyrants inside your head telling you you are not good enough need to take a hike! We will place a big old eviction notice in there, and get you to place of peace and contentment.
I will hold a very safe space for your to delve into the Truth of what you want for your life, and explore the choices that you can make to help get there. We will also work together to identify any blocks that might be keeping you stuck in the same old pattern year after year after year, and shine light on ways to work with those blocks to clear them. I will be gentle when you need it, and kick your butt when you need that, too! I can be the protector of your self-care by acting as your accountability, and can keep you on track by reminding you of the truth - that you are a divine being, deserving of love… from others, but even more so, from yourself.
There are many different ways we can go about working together, and appointments can vary from week to week - your choice, or we can decide together, or just go with the flow! 
  • Sometimes, you may need a soft landing from crazy times in your life, or you may have an issue that you'd like to work through. In times such as these, we can spend all or the majority of our time together in a coaching session. I recommend that these sessions be followed up with 5-15 minutes of energy work (reiki). I have found that this really helps to clear the way for you to move forward in whatever process you might be working at that moment.
  • Alternatively, you might really be tired of talking, and just need a quick check-in and a full reiki session to relieve stress and anxiety, getting you back to your 'factory settings' to start fresh. Any amount of the energy work will leave you feeling grounded and balanced, and will help to clear out the energetic gunk that might be bogging you down.

I enjoy and am gifted at supporting men and women of all ages and backgrounds, but always particularly enjoy working with mothers, or women who are about to embark on their journey in motherhood (pre-conception or during pregnancy). I have an extensive background in this type of care, having been a postpartum doula and lactation counselor for many years.

If you are curious and have any questions for me at all, I encourage you to reach out by phone, email, or even text. I would be more than happy to support you in any way that I can. I look forward to getting to know you!

This is a testimonial that is near and dear to my heart. This mama was unexpectedly blessed with a special needs son, and it was an incredible honor to have been able to support Mariah, her husband, and their sweet firstborn son, Charlie, for the first few months after his birth. Mariah is an amazing woman, and I am blessed to have been a part of her life at such a pivotal time for her family.

"At the time I had no idea how much Shelby was saving my life. Looking back, I know that she was the major reason I got through those first two months. My husband was gone mentally, my family was too emotional. Shelby was the rock, the broader perspective, the only grounding force…I will forever be grateful and affected by her support. I can easily and honestly say that seven years later the support she gave me continues to have an impact on the mother I am today. It's true. I think of Shelby all the time and carry what she both taught and modeled for me not just in myself as a mother but as a person."

"I have been working with Shelby since October and my time with her has been nothing short of amazing. She takes the time to really listen and ask the right questions to find out where your blocks lie. Before working with Shelby, I felt that my place in this world had already been decided and I was painfully unhappy with it. After our first session, I felt an immidiate differnce. She has taught me that my power exsists and is in fact, limitless. This is not your Tony Robbins-esque, THE TIME IS NOW life coaching. This is thoughful, in depth and changes you on a deeper level. I am forever gratful for Shelby."

I was introduced to Shelby by Pamela Hunt from the Farm Midwifery Center prior to me becoming pregnant. I am a planner and was interested in the farm, home births, and midwives. I emailed Pamela and she gave me Shelby's contact info. Shelby has been my go to guru all things natural when it comes to conceiving, pregnancy, birthing, breast feeding, and postpartum. She has been an amazing friend and mentor throughout my entire journey. No matter when I called, text, or emailed her, she was there for me with an answer and support. Sometimes she would answer a concern or question I would have before I even knew I would! She's knows : ) I got very lucky discovering her and having her as a "go to" for her wealth of knowledge on anything I was concerned about during and after my pregnancy. She is down to earth, funny, kind, caring, selfless, and sincere. Couldn't ask for more in a life coach. You would only be lucky to have her as a life coach and I now consider her a sister from another mister : )
