Hi, I'm Nona Jordan
I am so glad you are here.
To get a sense of who I am, you must know that I am deeply inspired by beauty of all kinds, from the beauty and utter naturalness of non-human nature to the beautiful devotion of humans who go beyond their limits to catch their dreams.
I've been told I'm intense and that my laugh is too loud and that I have almost no capacity to make small talk. I'm so glad these things are true so when we meet and you tell me what's real for you -- you won't find a more welcoming place for all of you to show up and be celebrated in all of your fine humanity.
As a Capricorn, my work is at the heart of my values - a very close second to my family, so let me tell you more.
When I graduated with my undergraduate degree in international business, I told my friends and family that I wanted to, "heal business from the inside out". As a 24 year old eager young woman, I didn’t quite know what I meant. By the time I was a 32 year old woman leaving corporate accounting burned out and dealing with the impact of stacked traumas (and a diagnosis of post traumatic stress), I knew in my heart that business certainly needed healing, but I needed to work on my own healing first.
Now, eighteen years later, I’ve had the good fortune of doing (and I am smart enough to keep doing) my own work of healing trauma, regulating my nervous system, and unwinding from toxic societal expectations to find my voice and my calling. On the path, I have trained with the best beginning with a 200 hour YTT through Kripalu in 2003 and since then, with some amazing mentors and teachers to amplify my own capacity for leadership, healing, and coaching. I studied with Martha Beck to become a kick-ass Master Coach and I am currently pursuing a master's degree in Psychology at Harvard Extension to deepen my knowledge of coaching psychology and the latest evidence-based approaches to change and growth. I've also trained as a master practitioner and facilitator of somatic practices such as meditation, breath work, earth medicine, and energy work, all of which honed my intuitive/visioning capacity and truly, saved my life. Combine all this with my business degree, a CPA license (currently inactive) and years working in publicly-traded tech companies in Seattle and it almost feels like I was born this way.
Which brings us back to organizational healing.
If we wish to grow our small businesses and our larger organizations in ways that enable individuals, the organization, and our communities to thrive we must begin to name, understand, and humanize the traumatic stress that is pervasive throughout our culture which hinders individuals from doing their best work. By bringing healing to individuals and teams within your organization (large or small), you empowers wellbeing, which enhances the possibility and promise of sustainable profitability based on healthy, empowered, and thriving individuals.
In my coaching and consulting practice, I support organizational healing from the individual to the team level by creating honest, supportive, and safe spaces for individuals and teams to address and heal toxic stress and trauma*, creating more energy and aliveness. This works forms the generative foundation that nourishes the full potential of your work in the world; it is the pathway to embodied well-being and thriving.
Based on cutting edge coaching psychology, the latest neuroscience, and ancient mind-body practices, my approach gives you and your business the space and the support you need to truly prosper.
It's time for you, and your business, to reach greater potential, growth, and wellbeing.
Here are a few things I believe
I believe we must be willing to face our challenges with courage to experience true joy. Often (maybe even most of the time), the journey to prosperity and success begins with our suffering — welcoming this aspect of being human makes you strong, brave and more unshakable in your sense of self-efficacy.
I believe that prioritizing our individual and collective healing and wellbeing is non-negotiable if we are committed to prosperity and thriving. Everything we create happens in the body: THE primary container of your knowledge, of your creative force, of your experience. Making space for the care and feeding of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing is necessary to creating the work, and the world, you desire. That must include addressing trauma and toxic stress.
I believe you can trust life and yourself. I know it may not feel like it when so many structures and ideals are crumbling, but on the other side of chaos and death is rebirth, always. Through focusing on individual and collective healing, you will be able to bring your wisdom, strength and power to usher in a new era. The future holds so much promise when we say yes to acting in accordance with our values.
I believe in the power of community. All boats rise together, period, end of story. Our most profound growth happens in relationship to others (because most of our wounding happens there as well, yes?) Individual coaching or saying yes to group work is a powerful way to create connection and invite support that amplifies clarity, empowerment, and inspired action.
I believe in the power of doing the work. To make manifest is to make something real. To create is to take aligned, committed action. It's okay to show up and get it wrong, and then keep showing up. It's time to do the work and to reap the rewards individually, and collectively.
*You may have noticed -- I'm not a therapist. I am not equipped to work with people or teams who are actively dealing with PTSD or complex trauma. However, avoiding the pervasive reality of trauma and/or toxic stress is detrimental to individual and organizational wellbeing. I offer trauma-sensitive individual and group coaching, as well as research-based, empowering embodiment practices that support healing, growth, and ultimately thriving for individuals, teams, communities, and the world.

What Women Say About Working with Me
“Nona, I’ve always had all the answers, what I lacked was the courage to listen and act. Now I’m sure that living life in alignment with my true self isn’t about living a life free of mistakes. It’s about living life consciously aware of the choices I make. And when those choices feel in alignment with my true self I experience happiness and continue along the path. Thank you, Nona, for showing me the way back to my true self.”
“Nona Jordan came into my life during a time that was seriously wonky. I left feeling healed, calm, and clear. Nona’s approach feels like whole soul renewal, energy realignment, and stress-free business building, all in one. Also! I’d be remiss not to mention that something truly magical happened through my work with Nona. Before we even talked, the investment I made to work with her came back to me exactly 100 fold. I’m talking real-money (lots), showed up, unexpectedly, 17 hours after I sent my initial investment her way. As someone who works with magic for a living, I can hands-down say, Nona’s got the midas touch. She’s fun, encouraging, and smarter than smart. She has my wholehearted recommendation, gratitude and love.”
“Nona’s work is profoundly potent and clarifying. Her deep energy work and skilled coaching helped me untangle my resistance to simply accepting the flow of abundance that was rushing toward me. She helped me rewire my beliefs about money, creativity and success in a way that fosters true, soul-stirring authenticity in my personal and professional life. And for the very first time I feel as though I truly embody my purpose and my unlimited potential. Her work is life-changing. Life. Changing.”
