NJ Miller

A little about me...

I am a LifeWork Coach and Counselor with a passion for encouraging and inspiring people to find their passion and energy. I graduated from CSUS with a Master’s Degree in Counseling with a Career Development Specialization. In the counseling program as I studied career development, I began to see how important it is to understand relationships. While in graduate school, I realized that I had not spent enough time on my relationships. As a result of my experience, I recognized how important it is to make time for healthy relationships. Although that revelation may seem obvious, like many busy people, I thought I could put my relationships on hold temporarily until I finished all of the important work that I was doing. When I realized how important relationships were not only at home, but at work, I became passionate about investing my time and energy in the relationships that I value.

I turned my passion into my business when I found that I love to work with people in workshops or one-on-one as I see their faces light up when they find their natural strengths as the source of their passion and energy. I enjoy helping people find ways to express their energy and creativity in their daily lives.

I want to help as many people as possible find happiness through positive spiritual thinking and healthy lifestyles. I use my strengths of curiosity and creativity to research and study theories on happiness, personality, healthy living, and spirituality. I am a member of the California Association for Counseling and Development, a member of the International Association of Coaches, a True Colors Career Development Facilitator, and a Real Game trainer.

I find energy being near or in the ocean. I love seafood, collecting shells, starfish, leaves, and boats. I love to travel, meet new people, and hear their stories. I enjoy facilitating workshops becuase I get excited about seeing people discover their strengths, find new energy, and learn to respect people who are different than they are.
