My name is Carla Hakim O'Brien and I am an Intuitive Healer and Functional Coach. I have decades of experience helping  kids, families, and women, to function better, feel better, and ultimately to live more successfully and happily as exactly who they are!   I can show you how behavioral , mental, emotional, or functional differences are simply the portals to your success and happiness. When we are constantly trying to be someone we are not, we struggle.  Here, you can find  and create your self and your life, your way!


My wisdom spaces are carefully researched and crafted environments to learn and grow through experience, not just talking.  It all feels like a time of enriching, and interesting playful discovery.  Your well being and wisdom are inherent, built in!  Playing and connecting in wisdom spaces, puts your focus on growth and strengths.  Everything gets lighter, more fun, and deliciously  creative!  


 Active mindfulness, presence awareness, intuitive skills (learn what's a good decision for you), self discovery, play, and pure creative flow are exciting ways to learn and grow important mind sets and skill sets for today's and tomorrow's world! 

I am able to help anyone interested in improving their quality of life and having creative fun and be more successful at the same time!


I welcome you to join me simply for a cool thing to do, or to solve a problem or shift from a lower level of daily living to one that feels good!  Choose from  a class, a membership community or for private intuitive conversations.   


Make decisions that excite you.

Live more presently and wisely with less stress!

Feel really good to be who you are!

Parent with more wisdom, love and understanding and of course, ease!


My work with you is experiential and somatic, such that it incorporates all of you, mind, emotion, body, and spirit.  Time here with me is not at all therapy but it is very therapeutic!   


Choose your favorite space each week and leave screens and stress behind, while you connect to nature, horses, art, journaling, or ... me!

Scroll down for current offerings and feel free to contact me with any questions!  I offer small class sizes and both online and in person options and meet all CDC guidelines for Covid Safety.  

Thanks for visiting!

Love and Wisdom,

It is the Spaces that we create together while interacting in "experience", that offers safety,  healing, and growth.  Kids need a safe place to be and create freely, as completely themselves.  When they can regularly escape the noises and pressures in a healthy and nurturing community, they grow naturally into strong and happy people!
