Shelley Haiken

Life Coach, Health Coach, Transition Coach


It's About Time, It's About Me!

I work with women who are planning to retire within the next year or two or have recently retired and are confused about what this major life change will mean to them and their families. I have been certified as a Professional Coach (CPC) and as an Energy Leadership Master Practitioner (ELI-MP). I’ve also been certified as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach (INHC) from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) where I was taught that our health is influenced more by primary foods, which include healthy relationships, regular physical activity, a fulfilling career and a fulfilling spiritual practice, than by the secondary foods that are on your plate.  

How I can help

Having recently retired from a high stress corporate job in New York City, my husband and I moved across the country to the beautiful high desert of Arizona, near Sedona, also known as Red Rock Country. I understand what it means to transition from a highly stressed life to slowing down, and I also understand how difficult it can be to realign your values with your new way of life. I can help you do that. I can help you transition to the second half of your life in a happy and healthy way. I help my clients establish their vision for what they want their life to look like, plan for their new life, execute that plan, transition to new circumstances and realign their goals and values to what their new life looks like.

Who I work with

Women Nearing or at Retirement Age


Shelley Haiken of Well Life Balance has changed my life, and I am so grateful to her for taking the time to work with me to become a better, healthier and happier person. She listens deeply and helps me become aware of the aspects of my LIFE that need attention, and guides me to take charge and change towards the direction in which I need to go. She has magically helped me release myself from my unhealthy relationship with food, and through our sessions, she has given me the tools needed to live a life understanding my body's intuitive needs and getting closer to the sources of my true nourishment

Since working with you, I've started a new different life and I have lost pounds. Now I eat only when I'm physically hungry until I become satisfied. Thanks so much for changing my life!!
