Show me the Programs!

→ Do you wish to achieve your highest potential in your vocation in Christ?

→ Do you feel at times stressed, depleted, on a 'busy treadmill,' with Sunday night blues in spite of loving what you do?

→ Do you wrestle to find the time to truly take care of yourself and to feel the presence of God moment by moment?

‚Üí Do you want simple, sustainable, organic and holistic self-care Habits and Rituals that don't add more to your mile-long to-do list?

And do you feel some tension between...

Your faith in Christ...



the science of self-care?

Your desire to help others...





having limited time?

Wanting to pray at all times...





your mind is busy?

Your desire for daily rituals...





effortlessly sustaining them?

Being a mentor for others...





feeling an impostor inside?

Your wish for inner peace...





emotions feel intense?

If you resonate, you are not alone and wholistic alignment in all these areas is possible!


Keep reading,  as one of the programs might be for you.

Ultimately it is GOD who is regenerating & supporting us.


And the ONE who moves through us to be at our best in our vocation.


And, at the same time, we can CO-CREATE with God by:

→ Developing our 'RENEWAL BLUEPRINT' so that we can Regenerate Daily, no matter the season

→ Continuing to GROW Psychologically and Spiritually to be fully Aligned and Whole

→ Performing at a HIGH LEVEL in our Vocation

→ Daily NURTURING our Soul and preparing daily our earthly vessels: Body, Mind, and Heart for a full day of giving

→ Bringing forth the 'FRUITS of the Spirit'

→ Transforming  from the 'Image of God' into the 'LIKENESS of God'

→ Being able to 'Live in the World but NOT of the world' 

→ Continuing to SERVE others in Christ with Joy, Energy, Patience and that 'Peace that surpasses all understanding'

→ Staying connected with God, 'on the Vine,' every day and every moment.

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’  This is the first and great commandment.  
And¬†the¬†second¬†is¬†like it:¬†‚ÄėYou shall love your neighbor as yourself.‚Äô¬†Matthew 22:37-39¬†

Now, I’m seeing myself apply Ioana’s teachings, feel being in the presence of the Holy Spirit, find serendipitous moments through connecting and being open to different things.

- Natalie

Hi, I’m Dr. Ioana, Christian mom and wife, spiritual care life coach & trainer, physician-psychiatrist, educator, passionate about learning, doing ministry work and giving to others like Christ, which unfortunately led me to chronic stress and burnout.

I said yes to everyone asking for help, coming from a big heart, but also from fear of being selfish, and then strived and pushed through all my commitments, with no time for myself, assuming that if I only pray I will be fine. But I was not.

After my second burnout and a huge loss in my life, I looked for help from both the psychological disciplines and Christian faith, to only find disjointed guidance, many times at odds with each other.

Finally I realized that if I wanted to give in Christ with energy and joy, I needed to create and apply simple daily habits, integrating science, psychology, spiritual care and faith, which I am honored to share with you.

I hope to see you inside the programs.

Sending you many prayers and blessings, 

Your sister in Christ,

Dr. Ioana
