My name is Nicole Deitrick and I am a wife, mother, licensed massage therapist, yoga instructor, day spa owner, yoga studio owner, business and life coach, and passionate entrepreneur. 


I started my first business at the age of 22, and have been building my Day Spa business for over 20 years.  In 2006 I became a Certified Coach through Coach Training Alliance.  In 2018, I opened a Yoga Studio. and most recently became a Certified Business Made Simple Coach through Donald Miller. In this time my business has seen recessions and booms, 9/11 and Covid.


There are many lessons that were learned the hard way – how to deal with toxic staff and clients, learning how to effectively communicate, improving customer service, learning about marketing and branding.  How to deal with growing too fast and how to recover when the bottom falls out.  Being a business owner is not for the weak.

I’m not just a Coach.  I’m one of you.

My passion is for peeling back the layers and getting to the very heart of who we are, what we want, and what holds us back.

Are you ready to cultivate a life you love?

What is the difference between Coaching and Consulting?

In the dynamic landscape of personal and professional development, the terms "consulting" and "coaching" often find themselves entangled in a web of ambiguity, obscuring the true essence of each approach.


As seekers of growth and transformation, it's imperative to illuminate the subtle differentiators between these two paradigms, each offering its unique pathway to empowerment and evolution.

Consulting wields a wealth of expertise and knowledge to chart a course towards specific objectives or solutions. Armed with a treasure trove of insights and strategies, consultants serve as guides through uncharted territories, offering clarity amidst complexity.


Their directive approach navigates clients through challenges, providing actionable recommendations and tangible outcomes.

In contrast, coaching transcends the confines of mere problem-solving, embarking on a voyage of self-discovery and realization. Like a skilled navigator of the soul, coaches delve beneath the surface, illuminating the depths of human potential and possibility.


Rather than prescribing solutions from an external vantage point, coaching fosters a sacred space for introspection and growth, empowering individuals to unearth their own truths and forge their unique path                                          forward.

  1. The Essence of Consulting: Picture consulting as a well-crafted map, meticulously plotted with precision and expertise. Consultants, armed with a deep understanding of their terrain, guide clients through intricate challenges, offering solutions rooted in experience and knowledge. Their role is to illuminate the path ahead, providing clarity amidst uncertainty and guiding clients towards their desired destination.

  2. The Soulful Journey of Coaching: In contrast, coaching transcends the confines of external guidance, venturing into the uncharted territories of the human spirit. Coaches, embodying the role of compassionate companions, accompany clients on a voyage of self-discovery and transformation. Through reflective inquiry and deep listening, coaches illuminate the inner landscape, empowering clients to tap into their innate wisdom and unlock their full potential.

  3. Embracing the Interplay: While consulting and coaching may appear as distinct modalities, their interplay often yields profound results. Consultants may harness coaching techniques to foster self-awareness and accountability, while coaches may integrate strategic insights to augment their clients' journey. By embracing the synergies between these approaches, individuals can navigate the complexities of personal and professional growth with clarity and purpose.

What is The Acorn Room?

I am a tenaciously patient person.  For most things.  Except food... I am tenaciously impatient when I am hangry.  But I digress.

When I was a brand new adult at the age 18 years and 21 days, I went on a big girl vacation with my boyfriend Brian to Siesta Key, Florida.  At the time of this trip, Brian and I had known each other for 4 months, and really only became a "relationship" days before we went on this road trip from PA to FL.  This may seem like a whirlwind to most people.  And in a way it was.  However I knew the minute I saw him for the first time that he was meant for me.


I had started a new job as a bank teller at First Valley Bank in South Hampton, PA my senior year of High School, and I kept the job after I graduated. 

One day in early September, Brian walked in to the bank.  That was the moment I knew.  It was as if my soul recognized him and started jumping up and down, inside my stomach.  You might know that feeling as "butterflies".  But I'm convinced that feeling is my soul doing somersaults.

Brian is a coy extrovert that loves attention, in a charming, confident way.  He smiled and talked to everyone in the bank, and all the ladies loved him.  I seemed to be the only one who did not know who he was.  After watching him for a few moments I leaned over to one of the other tellers and asked who he was.  Her snarky reply was "Don't waste your time.  You are not his type."

Thanks for the tip, Betty.

Brian seemed to have a mutual interest in me, as he made small talk at the window, held my gaze a little longer than he should have, and paused to say goodbye before he left.  From that day on, he made regular trips to the bank, waiting patiently in line to get my window.  One day he would withdrawal money from his savings account and put it into his checking account.  A couple days later he would withdrawal money from his checking to put it back in to his savings account.  Brian would make up reasons to linger longer at my window, saying he forgot his account and would ask me to look it up for him, or print out statements or any number of tasks to keep him longer.  It was adorable.

It didn't take long before we were going out to lunch frequently to get to know each other.  We met each others parents and family and friends. In fact I had even gone with him to visit his grandmother in her Nursing Home.  As Granny gave us a tour, she stopped in front of the activity room and announced "This is The Acorn Room.  We have DANCES here!"  and her face lit up with a great big smile.  It was a simple, sweet moment.

Brian had a road trip to Florida planned for the first week in January, and he asked me to go.  It was an exciting trip with beach adventures, mopeds and a maybe a wee bit of drinking.  We were standing in the parking lot of The Quay in Sarasota, in the very late or very early hours, and I looked up at him and said "Some day I want to dance with you in the Acorn Room."  It was the moment of recognition that I wanted to spend the rest of my life, and grow old with, this man.

Fast forward ...

We have been married since 1994.  Depending on when you are reading this, you can do the math.  How did I know at such a young age, and with minimal time together, that he was the one I would spend the rest of my life with?  How much is destiny and fate?  How much is commitment to the big picture?


My belief is that it is equally split.

And so begins my story of long term goals and growth.  The kind of goals that start out as a little acorn.  The kind of goals that you water and nurture and sing to.  The kind of growth that sometimes needs support, and prayers and pruning in order for them to go from seed to full grown trees.


Welcome to The Acorn Room.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
