So Glad You Came!
Hi there. I’m JOYLYN Maniaci, N.D, CYLC. I am a doctor of naturopathic medicine and a certified yoga life coach specializing in relationship dynamics and communication.
I started with an undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2002. I became a licensed massage therapist and then went on to medical school at Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington. After I graduated, I continued to pursue my interests in the mind-body connection and relationship dynamics with independent training with Yoga Life Coaching, Access ConsciousnessⓇ, and Non-Violent Communication.
I grew up in the Midwest, the youngest of four girls. Throughout high school and college I struggled with eating disorders and depression. My journey to health began with the revelation that my depression was mostly a result of adrenal fatigue, which no conventional doctor had ever heard of or suggested. From there my interest was piqued and I decided to go into naturopathic medicine. However, I experienced, both in my clinical studies and my own health journey, that the emotional component of health and dis-ease was largely ignored even though it was a significant contributing factor to most issues. I concentrated my studies in counseling and got outside training in coaching.
It was coaching that created the fastest, lasting change for me as I untangled myself from the eating disorder, depression, and abusive past. Using the tools that I was learning I was finally able to see the root cause of my depression and how I was unconsciously creating bad relationships. Becoming aware of the poor communication habits and making small changes made a huge impact in my life and helped me turn a failing marriage into a “happily growing together” story that continues to surprise and delight.
I love people in love.
I love seeing people holding hands—young and old, same sex, different sex, it doesn’t matter. I just love seeing people enjoying each other. I also love dogs, being outside, and anything that sparkles—but I digress…I’d like to help people see wake up to their own awesomeness, grow in confidence, and remodel their relationships to feel lucky in love... and it’s actually more available than we’ve been taught to believe because it isn’t about luck or romance, it’s about choice and a willingness to be do something different (usually involving communication habits).
I knew coaching worked because it worked for me and I was about the most stubborn and hard headed person I knew. I made so many mistakes (often the same one more than once, just to experiment thoroughly). I knew I could coach because I could laugh at myself and get other people to laugh, too—at my mistakes and at their own—instead of wasting time beating themselves up about them. In a nutshell, the mistakes we make that damage our relationships are generally poor communication habits that we’ve learned and inaccurate stories we’ve been telling ourselves on repeat. Once you become aware of that, you can change it; and there are tools I will show you to help make those changes much faster and easier...and forever.
I’d like to help you get out of your rut.
I’d like to give you my life and experience as Cliff’s Notes for remodeling your relationship and bringing laughter back to your love life. You can have more fun and enjoy yourself and your partner even more than when you started dating! And best of all, I can help you do it without making you convince him to come with you. Yes! Remodel Your Relationship Without Couples’ Therapy (unless he’s down, then totally bring him--the more the merrier).
