Meet Your Coach
I don't look like what I've been through!
Addiction, abandonment, neglect, suicide attempts, foster care, and abuse were all my normal by the age of nine. By 14, my mother had overdosed, I hated my Dad, and bounced from home to home. The desperation of wanting to feel loved, seen, accepted, protected, and safe had me married by 19, a mom by 20, and divorced by 21. For years I repeated cycles, loved unhealthy attachments, and was an expert at codependency and hyper independence. In what I remember as my first real therapy session in my mid-twenties, my therapist asked me what made me happy outside of my child, and I didn't have a clue. I feared being alone, was unhappy, and felt like bad things just kept happening to me. Until age 29, I lived my life on autopilot, and my distorted thinking and emotions had absolute control. Another failed relationship while being pregnant with my second child would become my catalyst for change and seeking the help I needed to do the work and change my life.
The past ten years of inner work and growth have been life changing. I now radiant love, joy, trust, and an overall excitement for life that is seen and felt in how I show up and the work I do. I have a deep sense of gratitude for my past experiences and healing journey. It all led me to understanding my gifts and finding my purpose. Those gifts and purpose led me to you.
I became a Master Certified Life Coach to help you become the author of your story. No matter your past or what your present circumstances look like your life can become whatever you intentional create it to be.

My passion is fueled by faith and what I value
I greatly value connection and sharing space for vulnerability and authenticity. I love to see past the masks we wear straight to the heart of a person and hold space for all of who they are where they are. We all have a desire to be seen, heard, and understood.
Love is the greatest and most powerful form of human expression. Possess it within first and then extend it out often.
Blood makes us related. Family consist of reciprocal relationships of love, support, encouragement, respect, and value. Choose your people.
All things work together for our good. When challenges arise in life, we are presented with the opportunity to grow. We are being called to expand in understanding, our thinking, love, grace, compassion, patience, perseverance, faith, and trust. We are being refined for a greater purpose. I believe in using everything I've overcome to positively impact someone else's life.
What I believe
A Few Gems
THE POWER OF AUTHENTICITY
God designed each of us with intention and created with unique with a set of gifts to impact the world. When we come to realize how powerful and impactful we are, we will know the greatest gift we can give the world is to courageously walk in our authenticity.
LET IT GO
We only have so much capacity. As long as we are gripping tightly, clinging to, and fixated on what we need to let go of, we will not have space for new mindsets, opportunities, and experiences. If we desire new or different, we have to make room.
TRY SOMETHING NEW
Stepping outside your comfort zone can be challenging but necessary for growth and reaching new goals. There is a lot of life to live and heights to reach outside of the familiar. You might be surprised by what you discover and what you can achieve if you are willing to get uncomfortable.
