Welcome! My name is Patricia (Pat) Sheveland and I am so pleased that you are visiting my site. I am looking forward to sharing a little bit about me, but more importantly, I hope you will find value in the connection we are forming here. A connection to help you move forward on your path to having a  healthy life, filled with purpose and joy!

The best way for me to describe myself is:  I am passionate about supporting people when faced with deep loss and grief, and I love working in partnership with people like you, to help you create a happier, healthier, and more purpose-filled life.

You are checking out my site because you are interested in what coaching is, and how it might help you – right? Where is your curiosity coming from? 

I would venture a guess that at least one of the statements below sounds like you:

  1. You feel like you could be a bit happier.
  2. You are mourning a significant loss in your life and are having difficulty finding the right support to help you maneuver through the pathways of grief.
  3. You are seeking to heal yourself from a physical or emotional concern you have at this time.
  4. You want to feel more ALIVE and in sync with your Life Purpose.

My role as your guide, is to help you understand what it is you desire in your life, and to help you quickly create that life!

In The Words of My Clients:

“Having started my own business, I reached out to Pat for assistance with structure and setting boundaries for myself and my clients. As we worked on that in coaching sessions, we were able to start talking about another goal I had in mind and once things fell into place my life became like a butterfly moving out of it’s cocoon. The skills I gained through coaching remain with me. I am so grateful to Pat for her support and encouragement and for helping me become a courageous person as well.” (K.vR Professional Guardian and Yoga Calm Teacher)

As a Healing Guide, I believe that we all hold the ability to heal ourselves, which is a very important aspect of living a fulfilling life. My role is to support you and share tools that can help you become your very own personal healer!

I Help People Learn How To Heal Themselves!


Just as no two snowflakes will be identical,  you also are unique with your own view of what you want your best life to be. My job as your coach is to help you have a crystal clear vision of that desired life.

So what do I bring to the table? I am a Registered Nurse, a Certified Life Coach through the International Coaching Federation, and a Certified Trainer and Group Practice Leader for Spring Forest Qigong. I also am an ordained ministera motivational speaker, and an author.

 As a Certified coach through the International Coaching Federation (ICF):

  • I am held to the highest standards in the coaching industry.
  • I am required to stay current in my coaching tools and resources by attending continuing education to maintain my certification status.


“Pat is a rare woman. She has a wonderful combination of wisdom, pragmatism, experience and deep love for people which immediately becomes apparent in her sessions. Pat was able to teach me that I had the answers to my problems within myself… she quickly taught this ability I have and continues to do so with each session I have with her. Her gentle, powerful way of being empathetic, not sympathetic, is sheer magic. I genuinely wish everyone had her to help them through the inevitable ups and down that we all experience in life. Thank you Pat for being the true healer that you are.” (D.B. MN, Massage Therapist)

Most importantly, I have personally experienced many life-altering events. I truly understand and “get it”, when my clients are sharing their stories and the challenges they face in their lives.

As a daughter who has been a care-giver for aging parents, I understand the grief from the death of a parent, and also the challenges of living with, and caring for an elderly parent.  

I understand the feelings of failure and confusion that arise when a marriage dissolves. I also understand the challenges as a wife and mom in blending two families, as we did our best to create a new family experience.

As a former executive in a corporation, I also understand how careers can have a significant impact on our overall life satisfaction. I have learned how effectively blending career, family, and self, requires awareness and planning.

My hope is that you will take a few minutes to check out the rest of my website and before you leave, do one thing:
