"I had a limiting belief I adopted in my childhood that said I was not important and didn’t matter, It showed up in how I was responding to life, often not taking time for my self care. I was not feeling in alignment with my needs and desires. I was not standing up for myself and was felt resentful and like giving up.  This program helped me to awaken what was truly inside. To know that I do matter and that what I need is very important.  The more I practiced this self love, the lighter and happier I was getting.  It helped me to recognize that I was blocking my true self from shining through. Now, I will continue to carve out time for myself unapologetically so that I feel supported and filled so I can give to those I love with my overflowing cup." ~Stephanie DonVito, Teacher

"This program has been so AMAZING! The calls are transformational. Through Unleash the Priestess I was able to build trust within myself and overcome self-doubt and sabotage.  I feel more grounded and authentic. Through releasing guilt and shame, I was able to step into my desires and needs and find an acceptance for who I am. Thank you for having this safe space to open up.  I’ve never experienced a coach as wise as you are, you just have so many beautiful things to say and integrate into life.  You have a very gentle and healing energy. I feel like I was able to go really deep and now I’m feeling more whole, light, happy, joyous and strong.  My advice to others is: Get ready to GO DEEP and see a HUGE beautiful life transformation! The most transformation you can get in a small period of time.” ~Carly Carmago, The Magnetic Queen, Life Coach

"I am grateful for our start of this new year together as a client of yours. It was special for sure. Just wanted to say hello - I miss you. I admire how you continue to do the work consistently! I just got hired to lead fitness classes at Assisted Living. I also am getting a 4-week series lined up to offer Zumba Gold (for adults 60+ ).  I am being taught to let go of timelines and expectations in some ways, while seeing my own ability to make decisions and manage. I’m so proud of you and what you share with us. I hope you are doing well and look forward to making it to a moon ceremony again when our schedules coincide. Love- Julie

Julie S, Unleash the Priestess

"I really loved Unleash the Priestess, and felt like I learned about myself in a much deeper way. I was fascinated by learning about the chakra systems, and learning to work through blocks at each level! I got to some of the roots of my patterns that were no longer serving me. I learned about how the guilt I experience, relates to the part of me that identifies with the martyr – wanting to always take care of others. I learned to check-in with myself, and ask what I need, before taking care of others. I was able to become more mindful of my automatic response, and really think about what need of mine, wasn’t being met. This has taught me to take a pause when I’m triggered, and process where it stems from more strategically. The program helps you understand what blocks may be getting in your way, where they came from, and the ways it may manifest in your present day life. Nicole provides tools, compassion, and strong guidance to help you work through them, so that you may come to develop an intimate relationship with yourself. With tools and working through our programming, healing is inevitable. Nicole will hold you accountable in a real and kind way, and ask vital questions that help you to identify your goals, so that you may live in alignment with what you’re truly seeking. Going through the program has taught me to love myself, and access greater abundance. I’ve learned ways to be in my power as a woman, so that I can show up in the world with more strength and loving awareness." ~Therese A., Therapist, Coaching Client

"My biggest takeaway in the "Unleash the Priestess” program was learning how to understand my triggers and shadows in a spiritual and compassionate way, so I can navigate them and control my behaviors that got in the way of my happiness, relationships, and purpose.
I can now handle situations that have been difficult in the past, in a different way that will be not painful or dramatic. I am now expressing my needs and emotions with grace and respect. I feel more calm, compassionate, in control, and excited for the inspiration to create new possibilities.
I'm proud of myself for investing and doing this work at this very special time in my life and within the collective. I'm empowered by my freedom, my skills and my belief in my Higher Self. I feel my divine feminine with power, sensuality and love.
Nicole you were a great guide and coach, especially in the live sessions, which helped me with breakthroughs and understanding behaviors in a compassionate, but powerful way, igniting the divine feminine within." ~Maria Tico, Coaching Client

"The biggest takeaway for me was greater clarity of my strength, my light and my power. You did a wonderful job of keeping me engaged.  I have let go of belief systems that were no longer serving me. I am definitely much more aware of energy leaking, money leaking, and negative self talk. You validated my fear, my sadness, my old belief systems, and helped me move away from them and reframe them into a positive. I need to continue redeveloping my discipline of self care and self love. The action items were powerful. The affirmations, mirror work, journaling and meditations all had a huge impact on me. I would say to women that this is a powerful awakening. An opportunity to really look deep inside and to gain sight of our higher Self." ~Risa A., Yoga Teacher, Coaching Client

"I no longer have the fear that I had before. I needed to heal trauma from the past to move forward. I was being held captive to my guilt of past decisions.
I started prioritizing my health and family over work. My husband said to me just this past week—- so great to have my Laura back!!
I loved this program! I loved the weekly summary and prep for following week. This was super helpful in helping me curate content for longer term integration. I loved the meditation on future self, creating a pie chart of my time, THE MANTRAS!!!, and really really benefited from thinking through the work/life balance shifts in personal growth, career, relationships etc…
I am stronger in knowing I do deserve a peaceful life.
There were so many takeaways, but the BEST was reclaiming the power I had to make a change for self care and self-love!
I feel lighter and can’t wait to continue working on this so I can get to my goal of more liberation. :-)."
I recommend this as a healing, self-discovery journey to help you reclaim your power and let go of the baggage not serving you.”  Laura Long, VP Human Resources, Coaching Client

"I realized that before this program I was so busy blaming others. This program helped me acknowledge and address some deep rooted trauma. Through this program, I let it go, the weight of the world has been lifted. My perspective changed and suddenly it’s quiet, peaceful- I have time to focus on creating and have a new found realization that anything & everything is possibly. If you can dream it, you can make it reality. Through “Unleash the Priestess” I had to take responsibility for myself, my actions, my reactions. I had to dig deep & realize that I am the only one that can make “me” happy. I had to learn to let go of emotions that no longer served me & step into a place of peace, balance, love. It has given me a clear perspective on how to deal with any issue that arises. Tools like NVC, acknowledgement of of what others might be feeling or going through. A whole new perspective. Nicole, you are amazing. You have given me a deeper understanding of spirituality. This is ending too soon, but I am going to continue on my spiritual journey and want to take more classes on shamanism & reiki. I loved the action items. I will absolutely use them in the future.” ~Wendy Sereika, Senior Sales Executive, Coaching Client

"I had many big takeaways from the “Unleash the Priestess Within” program. I realized that I have been playing out a story that I am a victim. I had been people pleasing and being a rescuer due to a deeply rooted old narrative of unworthiness. I became aware of my leaking energies and that my masculine and feminine energies were not balanced. My self-awareness and understanding has grown exponentially. I have learned that speaking my truth and creating boundaries is a necessity. I know now fully I am the architect to create the life I desire. This program was beautiful, thoughtful, and comprehensive. I plan to make this work a lifelong journey of ongoing growth. I loved the program and tools! I’m using my SMART goals, my vision board, and my meditations still. I highly recommend working with Nicole Doherty! Thank you!" - Melanie V.

"I was looking for something to help me really dig deep and release past trauma so I could lead a more peaceful life, moving forward. I have been to therapy before, but nothing seemed to really work for me. I've always walked away feeling like I needed tools, as well as the therapy sessions. In the past, I was never given tools and a plan to follow in conquering my emotions, now I feel like I have a game plan to follow each time I feel something I would like to release. I was finally able to get ahead of these emotions that have had a solid grip on me for my entire life. I'm proud of myself and how I made time for this. The homework and countless tools you gave each week after our meetings have proven invaluable to my healing and I've made really significant strides in releasing, healing and forgiving past traumas and pain. My meditation practice has really improved in length and concentration and being able to receive answers. I loved the journaling and the ones about stopping myself when feeling triggered. I mean I really loved all the action items and tools will continue to use them all! My online meetings with you Nicole were wonderful. I loved being with someone who is like-minded and a powerful and insightful teacher and healer. I would highly recommend this program!" ~ Jessica Miller Yoga, Coaching Client

"The Unleash the Priestess Within program was amazing. Before we began I was feeling not good enough. I was tired of carrying the burden of others. I needed to let go of rescuing other people. I learned how to accept that I am not responsible for what others think and feel. I know that I can only be responsible for myself. With all the tools and one-on-one support I was given I realized that my emotional pain is temporary. My negative past experiences were only stories in my head that I needed to heal. I could then create new relationships to them and change my mindset. I learned how to breathe deeply. Go in with an open mind and this program will change your life!”  ~ S. J. Commercial RealEstate

"I feel as though I have taken a leap into alignment with the true Amelia! I have found a deeper sense of self love and ways to get to know and nurture my own self needs and desires. It has been simple, but profoundly life changing. What was stopping me when I found this program was my own, self limiting beliefs. I had outdated, conditioned ways of thinking that no longer were serving me. My attachments to my childhood mishaps and traumas were limiting my ability to forgive and let go. Prior to this coaching program, I also had a hard time saying no, or feeling guilty when I did. My biggest takeaway is that my life is my choice and I get to chose the attitude, the outcomes, when I say yes and when I say no. I cannot wait to work through this again, maybe even take longer than a week with each action item (week) I absolutely LOVE the resources offered and hope to utilize many of them on a regular basis. I have noticed a tremendous difference in my ability to discern how I am feeling about a situation or commitment, and make the right choice that is in alignment with my needs. The experiences with Nicole of shadow work, inner child healing, forgiveness, appreciation, gratitude, self love, and many many more will be a beautiful benefit as I learn to hold space in a healthy manner for others in my life." ~Amelia Taylor, Registered Nurse.

"I thought I had tried everything in my healing journey. I didn't know what I didn't know until I met Nicole and Alan. First, Nicole was vulnerable and real. She told me her own story (and embodied it) and genuinely wanted to understand and save space for mine. It's just so rare to meet a real person who has done their own work and understands the process of healing from the ego pits of hell. Nicole is this type of person. Second, the work she did was authentic and original to her. She treated breathwork like a ceremony, weaving together a truly magical experience that transcended any type of medicine. Last, the work was highly integrative. It wasn't rushed or presented as a step by step program. She adapted by reading my energy and truly listened. Our talks just walking around in nature synchronistically helped pull back in parts of me I had lost as a child. If you want an experience that will truly changes the way you look at yourself and your healing journey, I highly recommend starting with her and Alan. It'll save you years and thousands and thousands of dollars." Jon

"When we started this program I was feeling a lot of self doubt and lack of patience. I was holding myself back from pursuing new projects or ideas and heavily in self-judgment and sabotage. One of my biggest takeaways from your program is that where I was stagnant before, now I have gained direction and clarity as well as tools to carry forward on my continuing journey of healing and growth. I have a greater sense of trust in my abilities and my intuition. I am continuing to expand in more areas of self growth such as spiritual, emotional, physical, and material. This program gave you tools to look into my core and heal myself through energy and love and reflection. It is valuable because of the simple, yet powerful tools that you can use for the rest of your life. I really enjoyed the journaling because I have always enjoyed writing, and for a long time i just felt stuck and didn’t know where to start. With the self reflections it was like a dam broke and a lot of the time I couldn’t stop writing! I also enjoyed the recorded meditations and visualizations, as they really helped me process emotions and energy in a more creative way. I definitely will be using a lot of these tools again and again moving forward and using the outline of this work as some inspiration as I continue to grow my own practice. The way you present the work to your clients makes it very fun and easy to be enthusiastic about it. I appreciate the focus on accountability! I have loved connecting with you! Even though our process has felt long and intense at times, it feels like it went by in a flash! So much gratitude!” ~ Cierra P.

This program is an opportunity to dig deep and release the old patterns that have been running loose inside me. I was feeling stuck in the life I was living and this program gave me clarity on why I wasn't able to move forward. I now have the tools to move into a life based on true passion, truth, feelings, and light. I think I was able to make A LOT of gains during this course, especially in some areas with my family. Some of my biggest takeaways were gaining insights into events that happened in the past that are still effecting me today, having the knowledge to understand the disconnect between my head and my body, and learning how to make decisions based on my heart and body, not my head! I have gained the awareness and the tools which will benefit me in the future when I am feeling uneasy. I am proud of myself for finding the clarity that I needed and diving deeper within myself during this time. This program gives you a chance to unlock how you want to live your life and find your truth!

Katrina S.

Some of my biggest takeaways - getting a new sense of awareness regarding patterns in my life that hold me back, and ways to combat them. A daily meditation practice. Confidence that I can be a successful coach. Self love practices. Clarity on where I am going and actionable steps for what I need to do. Nicole is incredible and working with her will change your life! She is an extremely gifted goddess that will help you heal your past, so you can show up in your present life, full of personal power. She will reconnect you with true self. Your Higher Self. It's hard work. She asks you to go deep, and be honest and dedicate a lot of time. But its all part of her master plan to help you grow and meet your goals. The entire way she will hold your hand and heart! ~Rasha Pensanti, Corporate Marketing Executive

My biggest takeaway in this program with you is that I can make choices out of strength versus operating in fear. I realized through this program and the healing work that I was unable to name and acknowledge what wasn’t working in a few areas of my life.  I was not linking my current inactions with the fear and old belief systems that stemmed from my childhood. For me the healing work,  journaling, mantras and guided visualizations like the womb healing and chord cutting helped me to release stuck emotions, shift my awareness and move me beyond these realizations to take actions based on courage and awareness. I describe this as actionable therapy. This has been a very healing journey for me that will continue to create more changes in my life. Thank you! ~Margaret

Clients received, spiritual connection, self expression, self love and unpacked loads of subconscious programs and trauma. Some said they got out of it more than years of therapy and that it changed their lives! “I loved being given the tools to experience my strong connection with spirit and reconnecting with the faith that all the knowledge I need about my life is within me.” “The non-judge mental space you created allowed me to express my deepest ‘secrets’ that I’ve not felt safe talking about before. This in itself was deeply healing.” “Each week I was able to focus on a part of me that needed healing or attention. I was happy to be so specific and make progress on my journey.” “I unlocked a core wounding experience— this had a domino effect on understanding all of my patterns. I released my victimhood from adolescent trauma.” “I got more in 10 weeks with you than 2 years in Therapy!” “It changed by life!”

Spring Group Coaching Course 2019

I was drawn to Nicole’s 12-week Unleash The Priestess program because I felt strongly that although things were very good in my life, they could be even better.   I had an incredible husband (who is also my spiritual partner and teacher without even trying to be), a "great job” (and I was able to take advantage of its unlimited vacation policy to my immense pleasure), and for the first time in my life, I was not worried about money.  But I knew I wasn’t living my highest-grade life and I felt that I had much, much more to offer the world.  I just yearned for much more “life” in my life. I knew that I couldn’t be my highest self without unblocking a few things in connection with my relationship with my parents and also with my then-current job, but I wasn’t sure where to begin to unravel these things.  I was stuck in a loop of (a) focusing on “gratitude” for all I had, including my job, even though so much about it felt awful to me, and (b) just avoiding certain triggers, e.g., anything related to my parents. Over the course of my 12 weeks with Nicole I unpacked a ton of stuff and began to really feel that my story was just a story.  Through journaling exercises (especially those related to the Inner Child / Victim story) and of course during our weekly calls, I also identified some major energy leaks which I didn’t realize were sucking my energy away from my presence, and thus keeping me from having the energy to be my highest self.   Besides this, I made huge practical steps in my life, which I never would have expected but am so excited about:  After over a decade of a very brittle relationship with my parents and little to no interaction with them, during the first few weeks of my work with Nicole, I established a nourishing and positive relationship with my dad, which I never would’ve imagined.  Our Inner Child / Victim work, and related mediations and the “cord cutting” meditation were really helpful here, as well as our weekly calls.  I also left my job and left LA, returning to NYC.  I would never have had the courage to walk away from this job without something else lined up, but through my work with Nicole — and hearing and seeing the way I spoke and journaled about the job — I realized that the job was draining my energy and taking so much space, so that there was no room for anything else to emerge.  I was only clinging to it out of fear (scared Inner Child). Same with life in LA — everything about it was an energy drain for me.  In one of the Future Self meditations / visioning, my setting was the lawn in Prospect Park, Bkln — from which I am now living steps away.  I am loving being back in NYC, where I can continue to practice “feeling” into actions and leaning towards joy. It’s so easy here to reconnect  with parks, nature, the energy of the city, everything that feels so good and joyful and authentic to me.  It is incredible to have flexible time, during weekdays, and I don’t feel guilty about that.  I know it’s temporary and that I deserve and need this time and space, which I haven’t had for so long. I don’t know exactly what’s next for me career-wise, but now I am full of more wonder than worry and more love than fear.  Though I can’t spend money as freely as I enjoyed doing over the past couple of years, I am truly joyful much of every day and I know that prosperity and abundance of all kinds are mine.  Lots of career opportunities have been coming up — and as an added bonus, with the new space I’ve made for myself, I’m even planning to lead a yoga and pilates retreat next year!   Yes, there is lots more work to be done, and the fear does come up from time to time, but it is quieter than ever, and now I have some tools to deal with it, and a stronger and bigger sense of faith and trust.  And I know that Nicole is always there, with kindness, patience, and love.   ~Joan P.

I am feeling great. I am feeling really independent and strong with who I am. The program with Nicole, you:), helped me to take the phrase “you can do anything you put your mind to” and shift it to not just words, but a deep seeded understanding that I can truly do anything I put my attitude to. The tools you equipped me with by being a reflection of my own power helped me to realize that I had that power all along. When I started the program I was insecure, codependent on a unhealthy relationship, and grieving the loss of my father. Now after having completed the program I feel truly free to use life, my mind, emotions, and body as tools to create the life of my dreams. Instead of being afraid of the dark parts of my past I can use them as tools to understand how I relate to life and not let them define me anymore. I feel deeply connected to my own light love and power that I am. I feel not alone but one with all. In that oneness I feel my dad's personality in that way, that with his passing or rather expanding into the great oneness, the more I connect to that the more I can feel his presence. Everything that I admired about him, his drive, one-pointedness, ability to find the fun in everything and his attitude that we get to be here. I feel that acting through me. I feel his love coming through me from the inside and therefor I feel a greater love for myself and all the parts of my personality that are like him. Thank you for this program and how it helped me to get off the sidelines of my life and become the author of my own story. Sarah vale
