What is life coaching anyways? It's pretty simple. I help you find your best you, so you can live your best possible life! I believe that within everyone lies all the answers you have ever looked for (just like Dorothy with her red slippers!)
Life coaching can help in a variety of areas. Maybe you just need help, getting more organized or focused. Maybe you want to lose weight, get healthy or manage a chronic condition. Maybe you are facing a big life obstacle and seeking answers. Maybe you lack purpose and need direction. It doesn't matter how big, or how small, a life coach simply helps you find the answers that lie within.
I am a professional life coach. I received my initial credentials in 2013, after a painful divorce that forced me to not only question my career, but my entire life and identity. It brought me on a long journey of rediscovery, which led me to finally be able to answer the life long question - Who Am I?
After freeing myself from a life of people pleasing, approval seeking, guilt, anger and finally forgiveness, I found my way thru the egoic jungle that trapped me for so long. I now live a dream life, honoring my purpose to help people remember who they are and to help them find love, acceptance and belonging. I certified as a Human Potential Life Coach in 2020 and I am currently finishing my hours to earn accreditation in the ICF as well. I am also a lifelong Course in Miracles student.
In addition, I have been an RN since 1997. I approach health and wellness from a holistic approach. We need to regard pain and health conditions as signals of imbalance. Modern medicine is quick to fix conditions thru medicine, but it fails to explore possible emotional connections, or even nutrition. The path to living at your optimal health isn't a quick fix. It takes some work, but it is worth it! You have all the answers within you and I want to help you unlock them.Wellness Coaching
Diets don't work and I've tried them all! If you want to lose weight for good, whether it's 100 pounds, or the last 10, you have to find a lifestyle that works for you. This relates to food and activity. You also have to truly find a respect for your body, and a complete acceptance and love for yourself! This requires some unearthing (if you are willing!)
I have spent a lifetime suffering from migraines, chronic stress, anxiety and anywhere from an extra 10 to 30 pounds. At 50, I have at last achieved my ideal weight and feel better than I did when I was 20! I discovered what foods trigger headaches, how to deal effectively with stress and to find peace in the hardest circumstances.
No matter what health goal you are trying to achieve, I meet you where you are and help you create lifestyle changes that can help you break thru those unwanted pounds and chronic health conditions. We look at all the aspects that could be holding you back, focusing on nutrition, as well as emotional healing. I firmly believe that you have what it takes to find your path to the best physical version of YOU!Divorce Coaching
In 2012, my 22-year marriage ended, causing a ripple effect of destruction in my life. I lost nearly everything and had to rebuild from the ground up. The journey was painful, but necessary. I built new foundations, discovered my true identity and found my way back to my soul and to real and genuine love. Divorce hurts, but it doesn't have to be the end. In fact, I see divorce as an awakening! The path is riddled with thorns and scars, but what lies at the end is simply a completely new YOU!Purpose/Identity Coaching
I've spent a lifetime trying to be good enough and trying to be heard. I hear the same from so many people. We all wander around trying to please others and gain approval, when all along, the power to be good enough simply lies within. We had it all along. We are all Dorothy on a journey to Oz. We think we aren't smart enough. We don't feel courageous or brave and often we feel empty and lack love for ourselves, and even others. It's time that you find your power! It's time for you to heal your mind, body and return to your soul. Get out your red sneakers, high heels or whatever suits your soul and let's find your direction, your purpose and your freedom in the discovery of the real YOU!
