Connect with your inner child.
My name is Trena Myers and I am an intuitive abstract artist, creative mindset and health coach. I received my health coaching training from Emory University in 2019 and have successfully completed the required sessions to qualify for national certification.
It all started one spring afternoon in 2002, while riding a theme park roller-coaster ride my life changed as I knew it. I had received whiplash which spiraled my health into a downward motion without any feeling of control. There were days when my legs would give out on me and didn’t know if I could even get out of bed. A common diagnosis of fibromyalgia was what every physician I had encountered had given me for over a decade, but I hadn’t given up hope that there was more going on with my health that just had not been found yet.
Through my challenges I always found myself at my canvas painting. It was a way to deal with stress and anxiety. It was freeing to let the emotions, the pain flow through my body into the paintbrush onto the canvas and then breathe.
My father is an artist and my experimenting with art began as a young child, throughout my teenage years into adulthood. I worked for my family’s art business when I was in college and at one time thought about getting a master’s degree in art therapy. I found that art was a creative outlet for unwinding and destressing.
I started teaching fun painting classes with my business, DesignsbyTrena! I travelled to the client and taught children to adults in their 90’s! This was just not enough for filling my soul.
In 2017, I had been working with resident physicians teaching the fun painting classes as a way to relieve stress. This is when I discovered my passion for emotional wellness painting. It was an abstract way of painting without restrictions or guidelines and the residents loved it!
The emotional wellness workshops consist of 4 different styles which could include color theory, meditation, mindfulness, and/or deconstructive art.
As an Emory University trained health coach I also take these creative mindsets into coaching 1:1 and in group settings. It is important to set aside “YOU” time, there is only 1 of you, so take the time to take the best care of YOU. “Everyday is a learning experience, the moment you stop learning is the moment you stop living” DesignsbyTrena!
"It was a fantastic experience, from beginning to end. As someone who is NOT an artist, I was pleased (and amazed!) to see the final product. In fact, I was completely surprised to see that I had painted it! Trena did a great job of coaching us, and helping all of us non-artists take our time, be focused and feel confident in our work! She made us feel sure about our potential, even though we were skeptics at the beginning! She was extremely patient, and took the time to explain all of the steps very thoroughly. Trena encouraged us, and gave us just the right amount of instructions and information, without letting us stress out about the final product. She was great to work with, and I look forward to booking her soon to do a party for my friends.I would highly recommend her to anyone, regardless of their artistic experience. I’m glad I got her card. I will be contacting her for sure! Thanks for coordinating us, and for the wonderful mentoring experience. It was an absolute pleasure."

"Trena has been very helpful with easing my stress and teaching me how to change my self for a healthier me. All our appointments have been on time and I always felt better about myself and goals after our talks. I feel that I am in a better place in my life since I started talking with Trena." Beth M. Atlanta, GA, Health Coaching
"I wasn't sure what to expect from health coaching, but I sure am glad I did it! It put a lot of things into perspective for me personally and got me thinking the right way. Trena was amazing and helped me set smaller goals and then bigger ones. She was so supportive throughout the whole process. I am very thankful for the opportunity to work with Trena. I don't think I would be where I am at now emotionally without her guidance. I would recommend it highly to anyone going through a difficult period. She truly listens and helped me work out tips I still use everyday." Kim, Divorce Health Coaching
"Just had an amazing and enlightening conversation with Trena J Myers as recommended to me. I definitely value you Trena! She may have shaved YEARS of frustration and wasted efforts off of our mission. Incredible ideas. Thank you again!" Sean B, Nashville, TN, Creative Mindset Coaching
