Heart Based Holistic Life Coach

Let’s build your unbridled life.


Unbridledadjective / un-bri-dled | 1: UNRESTRAINED unbridled enthusiasm; 2: not confined by a bridle; 3: not controlled or limited - done, felt, or expressed in a free and uncontrolled way.

My sacred mission as a coach is to help women shake off the "bridles" they wear and to hold space while they create a life of unbridled joy and enthusiasm.

Bridles come in many shapes and sizes. We choose jobs that are "right" to meet familial or societal expectations but that leave our hearts empty. We shape ourselves into images to please anyone and everyone but ourselves and lose ourselves in doing so. We limit ourselves by thinking small and not daring to dream because "nice" girls don't dream big. We've worn our bridles so long that we're disconnected from our hearts and our intuition.

Does any of this sound familiar to you? Does your bridle no longer fit? Do you wish you could be free to live as you desire and on fully embodied and aligned terms? Has your bridle diminished your heart's voice and dimmed your intuition?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, coaching with me just might be your first step toward living an Unbridled Life.

My coaching melds magic (tarot reading, moon rituals, etc.) with my extensive holistic and trauma informed coaching training to help stressed out, disconnected women reconnect to their hearts and personal power so that they are free to achieve their big dreams and live a deeply connected, soul-aligned life full of joy and ease.

My services are most effective for women who are one or more of the following:

  • Are feeling "stuck" but don't know why
  • You know you're meant for "more", but not sure of "what" that is or even where to start to find your "more"
  • Wanting to reconnect to and trust your intuition
  • Wanting to be in integrity, in you work, relationships and community
  • Desiring to live an embodied and aligned life full of purpose

How do I coach you to your Unbridled Life? By walking with you in:

Step 1

Your Perspective

I meet you where you are in life. Together we'll take a look at what's working and what's not in your career, family, friendships, health, self-care, spiritual practice -- the whole picture.

Step 2

Your Visioning

This is where you meet your future self. How do you feel in your body when living your future life? What is the flow of your days? What do you create? How do you feel in your relationships?

Step 3

Your Healing

Coaching often uncovers those tender places that need love, care and attention so that you can step into your vision. This is where I'll hold space and suggest tools for your healing.

Step 4

Your Planning

This is where coaching differs from therapy and other modalities. I work with you to make a plan that gets you to your vision. And I'll hold space for you through every step of your plan.

Step 5

Living your Unbridled Life.

This is where the magic is made real. All four steps coalesce, creating an embodied and aligned life lived with joy and ease.

When I began my work with Ashley I was in a state of constant fear and anxiety. Being in the midst of a pandemic and the uncertainty of the future was beginning to feel unbearable to me. I was not able to get grounded and lacked focus. I knew I needed to make change in my life but wasn’t sure how. Then the universe intervened on my behalf and I was connected with Ashley in just the right moment. My only reluctance was I knew it was going to be a lot of work. However, I also knew I had to get back on track or risk losing the gifts I’ve been blessed with.

Since starting my work with Ashley I’ve learned to strike balance, set goals and relax into a comfortable rhythm. Ashley has brought a sense of calm and ease into my life. The journey I was reluctant to embark on doesn’t feel like work at all. I look forward to our sessions and developing the tools required to grow and heal. My work with Ashley has helped me in every aspect of my life and I now look to the future with excitement and wonder rather than fear.

Ashley is a person of great insight, empathy and integrity and has been a friend, confidante, support person, coach, horse and rider trainer for me for over 15 years.

Ashley is extremely intuitive with both humans and animals, and does an amazing job of sharing that knowledge. She is organized in her teaching, listens and adjusts while not letting you off the hook (unless you ask!!), yet gives you lots of support and focused feedback.

Recently, Ashley did a Tarot card reading for me.

I was not focused so I asked the question “What is my purpose for this year?” The answer was profound and unexpected…  I was carrying a great deal of internal grief that I need to express and address. I was speechless at how accurate the reading was. Ashley was incredibly supportive in helping me to see what I needed to address and helped me with exercises and ways to work through my grief.

You will be pleased and amazed at the positive impact that working with Ashley can have on your life!

I’m Ashley Mikel.

I’m a holistic, trauma informed life coach, and a believer in and a maker of magic living in Denver, Colorado. After 25 plus years in corporate America and years of "traditional" study resulting in an MA in Organizational Communication, I finally awakened and threw off my "bridle" with more than a little help from my horse Stella. She demanded that I rediscover my heart's voice, intuition and magic. I now live my life's purpose helping women create their Unbridled Life -- one full of freedom, joy, ease, and yes magic.
