Erin Banda

I am a trained ontological life and health coach with a passion for supporting men and women to create a life and relationships they truly love.  I was inspired to become a coach after resolving my own emotional and physical issues through food and self-care.  I realized that my life and mindset were getting in the way of my health, and ultimately it was up to me to take responsibility for both.

Through 25 years of experience in the legal and non-profit worlds, I understand the challenges of maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle while juggling work and family. My education and training is listed below, but my most impactful and meaningful education has been the collection of my life experiences: navigating my own career confusion, balancing equally loud callings to be the best mother possible while continuing to follow my own life purpose, divorce, debt, health challenges, re-marriage and co-parenting. These experiences have taught me powerful lessons that I’ve leveraged to create a happy and peaceful life. These are also the skills that I draw from to truly understand and partner with you to transform your life.

Many of us are on a personal journey, searching for that balance between our responsibilities in the world and our innate need to nurture and express our true selves. I found my meaning and purpose through my trainings, the coaching I receive, and a dedication to life-long inquiry and mind mastery. I am now honored to support you.
