Since you’re here, I guess you want to know more about me and why Im so passionate about empowering you to reclaim the powerful woman that is already inside, so that you can begin to live the life you desire instead of the one you’ve been settling for.
You feel good most of the time and most people think you have it all together. Your life looks great from the outside, but you are really sick and tired of trying to keep up the facade that everything is wonderful in your world; the self doubt, putting up with constant criticism, the fear, the finances, the anxiety, the people pleasing, the care taking, the isolating, the numbing,… It’s emotionally and physically exhausting!
I know where you are and how you’re feeling because I’ve been there. I spent over 20 years of my life doing all the things I just described. I was in an emotionally abusive marriage. I tried harder and harder, depleting myself along the way. I was struggling with depression and low self esteem, and I was overweight, unhealthy and unhappy. Finally, in 2006, I just couldn’t take it anymore. I decided to see a therapist. I knew something had to change.
When it began to escalate to physical abuse, I knew I had to leave. I was done with tolerating physical and emotional abuse, done with being disrespected, done with feeling powerless. I had enough, enough of feeling like I had no say and stuffing down my words and my anger with food, enough of waking up everyday thinking ‘Life Sucks”, even though to the outside world my life looked like the “American Dream”.
I made a decision and left it all behind. Im not going to tell you the journey was easy, it wasn’t, but it did make me stronger and I learned some very valuable lessons. The greatest gift of the journey is my own transformation, going through the sometimes painful process of letting go of who I was, the old dis-empowered self, and being able to write a new chapter in the book of my life.
We all have that feeling of when its time for a new chapter. In the group counseling sessions I attended, I met women just like me, sharing their stories and living their own version of “Life Sucks” everyday, just like I did. Remembering their stories, and my own challenges and experiences of going from losing everything, to creating a life that I love waking up to everyday, is why I do this work. Im here to guide you in the process of owning your power and boldly creating the life you desire.
The future holds so much promise when we are able to stand in our power and boldly say YES to our own desires. It fuels us to raise the bar for how we want to live, it pushes us towards freedom and gives us the courage to pursue our dreams.
As a personal empowerment coach, I use a unique blend of spiritual principles and practical tools to guide you to ignite that guiding force within you to transform your way of thinking and being. You learn to let go of anything that disturbs your peace. All of those old thoughts, beliefs and self sabotaging patterns fall away, you reclaim your worthiness, and you begin to confidently participate in creating a new chapter in the book of your life.
I want you to stop doubting yourself and looking outside of yourself for validation from others. Everything you need is already within you. I want you to move through life with a deep sense that you are enough, and you have the ability to create the life you choose. Freedom, abundance, and fulfillment is your birthright.
It is powerful to be in a space of truly knowing yourself, accepting yourself, flaws and all, and trusting your own truth as the basis for letting go and creating the life you desire instead of the one you’ve been settling for. Expect a complete transformation!
My life now is filled with what I define as “soul level happiness”. I am passionate about my work. I love to travel. I have some of the most amazing experiences, and I get to meet interesting people I wouldn’t have imagined meeting years ago. Best of all I have 2 amazing sons. I can truly say Im living my best life. It doesn’t mean that everyday is perfect, that’s okay too. I will always be a work in progress, and I am making progress, learning and evolving everyday into the best version of me. And that’s what I want for you.
Think about it…if it wasn’t for the fears, anxiety, the limiting beliefs you picked up throughout life, what would be possible for you?
A Few Fun Facts about Me:
I am a certified holistic lifestyle and wellness coach. I also have certifications in Applied Health and Fitness Psychology, Cognitive Behavioral Coaching. I am passionate about personal development. My journey and my passion for learning has led me to extensive studies in the mind body approach to healing, spiritual psychology, and how to consciously create new habits and new ways of thinking so that you can begin navigating life’s challenges in a more empowering way.
I love being near the ocean and I love to go sailing. Being on a boat in the middle of the ocean is real therapy for my soul.
I am certified in Sports Nutrition and Exercise Science and I worked as personal trainer for about 5 years, and I love weight training, but there was a time in my life when I really disliked the gym and refused to go.
My favorite quote:
“Change is inevitable, but transformation is by conscious choice. While you do not always have control over how or when changes occur in your life, you can choose how you are in relation to those changes. When you step towards, rather than ignore, fight, or resist change, you reclaim your personal freedom. You step onto a path of transformation, and move from being a victim of change, to being a co-creator with change.”
