About Estelle Brodeur

I coach people who want to build a healthier life, from the ground up. Whether we focus on personal or work themes, you can expect energizing conversations that identify barriers, create resiliency, develop goals, and secure habits for joy and satisfaction.

My career experience and personal health practices provide a creative coaching style, along with credentials from Duke Integrative MedicineInternational Coach Federation, and The Wisdom Of The Whole Coaching Academy.  I hold graduate and undergraduate degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University and The University of Virginia. My knowledge comes from over three decades working in the fields of corporate wellness education, psychotherapy, and advanced nursing practice.

When I am not working with clients, I orchestrate Laughter Yoga RVA, a group that promotes wellness using the practice of unconditional laughter. I recently became a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200), and am bringing my 16-year love of traditional yoga practices into new territory!
