Meet Your Team

Sonja Irina Johansen


Sonja, after experiencing her own amazing physical transformation, has assembled this incredible team. Due to her release of 170 pounds, keeping it off since 11/18, and all the other ways she has lived a life overflowing with lessons, she will be offering individual transformational coaching. She will be leading the Magic in Membership as well as providing support throughout for group/individual coaching and sponsorship. Sonja is also available for remote/group retreats to come.

Patricia O'Connor


Patricia Reichgott O’Connor combines the wisdom of a life well lived with her own 12-step experience with her many years of training in Empowerment Coaching, IFS/Parts Work, and The Tools. She brings her unique experience and skillset to her coaching. 

Patricia guides participants through a  step-by-step process that involves no-nonsense, straight talk, within an atmosphere of love and compassion. Those who feel called to work with her and see the process through come out flourishing and living lives they might hitherto not have imagined were possible.
