My name is Shelley Balla-Hawkins and I am here to help. I nurture wellness, connection and creativity and specialize in helping people to overcome challenges and cultivate a life of meaning, purpose and joy.  I have the incredible pleasure of owning The Nest: A Gathering Place, where I have intentionally created a tranquil and beautiful space to help you do your healing work.

  • Create and lead a more vibrant and inspired life.
  • Heal authentically and deeply in a way that allows hardship, pain and trauma to transform you instead of limit you.

  • Go beyond a quick fix for lasting resolution, giving you effective, practical tools you can use for a lifetime of benefit.
