To inspire the discovery of hope, cultivate wholeness, and ignite a passion for life within our community by bringing individuals home to themselves through integrative health and lifestyle enrichment services and education.



We believe that being well starts with living well.
   ...that when we design and engage in a lifestyle which nourishes the whole person, on our own terms,          the choice of hope emerges.

   ...that hope transforms into a state of balance which naturally translates to happiness and health.

   ...that happiness and health - a well-lived life - is contagious and ripples out to friends, families, and              communities, then comes home again to support the unique individual where it began and will                  continue to grow.
We believe in full circle.


The HOPE Architects





Deb at the ocean, one of her favorite places to live like she means it.

Deb is an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach, and Integrative Health and Behavioral Coach, with other professional certifications in Health Coaching, Integrative Nutrition, Legal Nurse Consulting, Meditation, Mindfulness, Stress Management, and Healing Environments. A Reiki Master Teacher in Usui and Karuna disciplines, she brings a decade of mind-body healing, teaching, and energy medicine experience to her work. She is currently pursuing Functional Medicine, Therapeutic Cannabis, and Therapeutic Yoga Teacher certifications. She also has extensive education and training in complementary specialties, including crisis prevention, conscious relationship coaching, early childhood and special education, eating disorders specialist, motivational interviewing, self-management support, integrative manual therapy, and family health management. Her most important asset, however, is the ability to listen, allowing trust, inner knowledge, and hope to emerge and drive powerful health and wellness outcomes for her clients. She draws on personal and professional experience in chronic disease and mental health management to support clients in calming their chaos and navigating the world of contradictory nutrition and health advice to find what truly works in their lives and empowers them to make sustainable changes to improve health and happiness on their own terms. Deb is also an Ordained Minister and holds a professional certificate in Event Planning (see our Love Is Love branch). She likes to feed her soul with skiing, reading, laughing with her three children, daydreaming about exploring the world, and the more-than-occasional doughnut.

John E. Sargent




John, through his own eyes, articulated through a quick, rough sketch. (He smiles a lot more than this depicts!)

John can also COOK – and loves it! His undergraduate education in Fine Arts and Graphic Design further developed his innately keen eye and depth in understanding of graphic and studio work with a firm footing in a variety of computer rendering platforms. He has cultivated a wealth of experience and skills through the exploration and real-world application of both fine and living arts and is pursuing Master Gardener certification. A hands-on creative type with over two decades in the food and beverage and horticultural industries, he understands the meaningful relationship of food from seed to table. He believes that relationship is mirrored in our creative lives, from concept to finished work. Whether your interest is self-nurturing and growing through artistic outlets or the complete immersion in the design of a functional outdoor space that nourishes bodies and relationships alike, he will work with you to create the masterpiece you didn't know you had in you. He believes there is no garden, yard, or canvas too small to think big and truly engage with your environment and yourself. He enjoys fly fishing, snow-boarding, sharing his culinary prowess, fueling his artistic fire, and crafting treasures from trash.
