Desiring a Life with more Joy and Freedom?

You are not alone, I’ve been there too

Hey y’all, I’m Rebecca!

I’m a Life Coach who specializes in increasing joy and overcoming trauma.
You wouldn’t guess it now, but I grew up in a dysfunctional home that left me paralyzed with fear and perfectionism. At an early age, I knew if I had any hope of living a joyful life, I had to heal my trauma and unshackle myself from my difficult past.

I’ve spent over a decade dedicated to discovering the most effective tools for healing trauma, and on my journey I’ve completely transformed my life! Thanks to the wisdom of coaches and teachers that went before me, I went from waking up every day to self-criticism and despair to waking up feeling excited and grateful for another day to live my dreams. My relationships became more fulfilling, my passions were reignited, and I now experience bliss and contentment as the default feelings in my life.

Since then, I’ve been sharing my experience and the tools I’ve gained to help others let go of what’s been holding them back, and design a life that really is heaven on Earth.

My life since recovering my authentic self is all about being of service, sharing laughter, good food, dancing like no one is watching, gardening, traveling to places I’ve never been, painting, singing, spreading the love through acts of kindness, and making the world a better place.

How It Works

I will support you as you gain self awareness and overcome challenges, helping you get the results that you want. All one-on-one coaching is 100% customized to your needs and desired outcome. You can transform your thinking and reclaim your joy by exploring your core beliefs and values.

At your own pace, we'll walk step-by-step to find the solutions that are right for you. You’ll see clearly the roadblocks keeping you from living your best, most joyous life, and together we will crush them into dust!

Coaching is most effective when you're in a stable place in your life. If you're in a place of emergency or urgent need, I recommend you seek help from your primary care doctor or therapist.

One-on-one coaching sessions are between 45min - 75min, with phone, evening and weekend hours available for your convenience.

Testimonials

Rebecca Diana is a stellar coach you guys! I just recieved a session yesterday that left me so excited, hopeful, confident, and ready to bust into 2020 with a new biz plan for some upcoming projects and endeavors that have been brimming in me for a long time.

Thanks to her expert ability to let me go slow as I needed to get to me core ideas and needs for these plans I have, we ended up getting so much done! Ironic how that works. A good coach makes all the difference. Get your clarity and actionable next steps with Joyful Cactus!

I recommend Rebecca for her ability to use her empathy, wisdom & kindness to encourage others to step into their power.

Rebecca’s coaching style is a fit for everyone. She’s caring, insightful, wise beyond her years, and so very nonjudgmental. I’m a 30 year old woman who’s living a healthy, happy life but knows there’s always room for improvement. I personally was struggling with the idea of children- when/if/how many- and Rebecca was a compassionate mirror at times, as well as being a guide and teacher at others.

She gave extremely helpful homework assignments, listened deeply, and gave absolutely amazing feedback and guidance. To anyone, ever, that’s looking for someone to listen, give insights, help them through any trials or emotional tribulations- Rebecca Diana and her Joyful Cactus Coaching is 100% the business to choose!

Joyful Cactus Coaching was the first stepping stone to my healing and recovery. Rebecca is there to listen with compassion and empathy. I don't know what condition I would be in now if it weren't for her. I needed someone to hear my truth, my true life story, and feel validated. I was in shambles at the time, because I awakened out of denial. Rebecca was my go-to from the first session. She listens without judgement. It was like talking to a best friend when I had absolutely no one else in my life I could trust and had eliminated, family and friends altogether.

Rebecca was the lifeline I needed. Thanks to her, I found a LCSW therapist I consult with weekly. She is a coach who can listen and empathize because she has helped pave the way in her own life experiences. Having been in the trenches of survival herself, she can understand what you're going through. Rebecca has found a special way of serving anyone in need of guidance. I have been able to release tears from childhood neglect and abandonment because of the safe space she offers and her unique props she has in her home. Her nurturing soft voice is soothing to the soul and inner child we all have within. Her mix of therapeutic modalities offer a complete touch and attention to your overall needs.
