Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself, My Name is…
Rodnisha Ford, however my name doesn’t seem to be as important as the reason I am here. I’m here to create and heal, giving myself and others a space to exist freely as we navigate the often chaotic intricacies of life. I founded Creative Wholeness as a space that acts as shelter for those in need of a rejuvenating and creative community existing outside of idealized limitations. In this place of courageous safety I aim to cultivate growth through wellness on all levels of mind, body, and spirit.
As a holistic health coach, healer, creative, and dance enthusiast I move to the beat of my own imagination to cultivate community healing spaces. While I pursue a doctorate in Mind-Body Medicine, I combine my education from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with my health coaching certification from the American Council on Exercise (ACE), to provide an integrative approach to health.
After years of feeling like my passions of creativity and wellness were mutually exclusive events, I have tailored my work to incorporate both of these aspects of the human experience. Through my work I empower clients to take control of their own well being by guiding them toward useful tools that will aid in sustaining long-term wellness. In this way my, work is rooted in the understanding and belief that the body has an innate ability to heal itself if given the necessary time and space to do so.
From this framework I believe in helping clients regain their autonomy when making health decisions instead of feeling pressured to always rely on “expert” advice from outside sources. I am a strong believer that each individual is an expert of their own minds, bodies, and souls and should therefore be an active participant in all decisions that affect their life and longevity.
