I will be taking a leave of absence.
I graduated with my Masters of Divinity from United Theological Seminary of the twin cities April 30, 2023. I will be doing a one year residency program at Methodist Hospital. I won’t be available for coaching or retreats through September 2023. After that time I will determine if I will be doing chaplaincy full time or return to coaching part time.

Discover connection with your inner essence and rediscover who are you are meant to be! Hello!  Let me introduce myself!  I am Tammy Coia and I have been leading group and private retreats for over 15 years.

I am a mom, a bubbe to 6 absolutely beautiful grandchildren, I am a daughter, sister, friend and a fierce protector of all things!

I have a gentle way of listening intuitively to things that need to be brought forward in your life. I use writing as a tool to bring about transformation and healing in your life.

Women from all ages and walks of life have experienced a renewed energy and feelings of clarity after attending a retreat with me.

Who is Tammy Coia?

I specialize in helping women get unstuck and feel empowered. Healing those memories that have remained a part of their pain through writing, releasing and letting them go.
