Executive & Wellness Coaching

Denise Joseph, J.D.

As a world community, we are fortunate to be living a collective cultural shift towards personal and interpersonal authenticity, consciousness, and growth not borne from exploitation.

We are living in a unique and notable era when more and more people are becoming sensitive to the concept and the possibility of truly transformational psychosocial change. At this very moment, there are billions of individuals desiring transformation in themselves and in their lives. They collectively experience a persistent, nagging suspicion that, living day-to-day, with a sense of contentment, purpose and peace, is not just an aspirational ideal, but an attainable reality that is entirely possible for them.

By deciding to visit the Open Sea Institute, you might count yourself as one such individual. Perhaps you might ask yourself if you’ve reached a precipice— a point in your life where you know you need to make a change? Perhaps, you’re realizing that living your life without an appreciable feeling of balance and fulfillment is no longer something you’re willing to do?

At OSI, Denise Joseph offers clients the opportunity to co-create the changes they are seeking in their lives. Through life and wellness coaching, Denise asks clients to travel the path of actualization and authentication with her.

When you partner with Denise, you will develop a clear vision of your truest potential while learning how to work through and remove the steady stream of obstacles that we all must encounter in our lives. Coaching helps clients gain and maintain a comfortable stability in all aspects of their lives while motivating clients to utilize their own significant reservoirs of strength to achieve the goals that clients will learn to clearly define in session. Neuroscientific research has shown that our brains are equipped for growth, edification and healing. Successful coaching helps to rewire our brains for success.

During the course of your individualized coaching plan, Denise will curate a receptive space for you to identify obstacles and interferences in your life. In this receptive space, Denise will journey with you into the past and present life experiences that so often confound us and prevent us from realizing a sense of wellbeing. Denise then invites you to cross with her from a place of insight to place of action, bridging the gap between desire and doing. In a partnership with Denise, you will feel that you are reclaiming authorship of your own life story and recovering the starring role in your own destiny.
