Laurie Archbold

I offer tools and training in the areas of communication, conflict resolution, self-discovery, and personal growth that help people live from their heart and fulfill what’s important to them.

My passion for deep connection between people has guided me to lead transformational programs for more than twelve years. I am a Certified Trainer with the HeartMath Institute and a Certified Facilitator with The Compassionate Listening Project. Prior to my current work, I spent eight years at a leading company in the field of personal and professional growth, training and development. Authenticity, integrity, and connection are foundational to my work. 

I live my life from a tiny home that my partner and I built together. I am passionate about cultivating connection between humans and the power of communication from the heart, which comes in handy when living in a small space with another human being.

1-on-1 Coaching

I offer 1-on-1 coaching for people who want to deepen their connection to themselves and others and understand what makes them tick. My coaching focuses on deep listening, self-regulation tools, and helping you discern the wisdom you hold within yourself. The resilience training and communication tools I offer help you live, lead, and communicate from your heart and recognize and honor your values.

Through your work with me, you will 

  • Gain clarity around goals and commitments

  • Have the relationships you care about thrive 

  • Increase your performance and effectiveness 

  • Become a more resilient person who can recover quickly from difficulties

  • Harvest lessons that help expand who you know yourself to be and what you are capable of 


We meet online to engage in deep conversation and practices that support you in increasing your effectiveness and performance to help you reach your goals.  

A Walk in the Woods

Research shows that time spent in nature connects us to ourself, each other, and the larger world in profound ways. By engaging in coaching conversations while walking through nature, we increase the impact of our conversations and practices by supporting full integration of the coaching. I will meet you in your favorite spot in nature, or can recommend green spaces across the greater Seattle area. 

Group Workshops

I offer workshops that build capacity to communicate from the heart, navigate conflict effectively, and become a more resilient human being.

Workshops are highly experiential, meaning we practice and work to embody and integrate the practices as we go. Workshops are customizable for various group sizes of 8 to 30 people, and typically are 1 to 2 days in length (although shorter workshops of a few hours are possible). 


As a Certified HeartMath trainer, I also offer resilience training and technology programs to the leaders and staff of companies, hospitals and schools as well as public workshops. These workshops provide improvements in health and effective performance by reducing stress and boosting energy and mental clarity. (I am trained to lead HeartMath's Resilience Advantage program, which is used by the US Navy, top hospitals, and Fortune 500 companies).
