Top About Me

Nice to meet you!

It is my mission to inspire others to make positive changes in their lives, to feel good about themselves, and to support & encourage them as they work towards their goals and discover more about themselves.

I have been coaching for three years, and I can't get enough of it. I've helped clients with some serious breakthroughs and revelations, and those are what keep me passionate about being a coach.

My Role as a Coach

As a personal coach I will guide and support you to take an active role in creating the life you want to be living, while also teaching you to foster a mindset of self-love and acceptance. The result is a feeling of confidence, empowerment, inner-harmony, and a belief that you are living life the way you want to be living it. 

I provide insightful advice and teach tools and techniques unique to each individual's needs; providing space to explore thoughts and feelings in order to gain deeper self-awareness.  
I will teach you how to simplify, to let go of what you can't control, and to make internal and external adjustments to create a more peaceful and balanced life.


My coaching will springboard you towards your goals - whether they are personal, physical, relationship, or career oriented goals - but it will also propel you towards greater emotional balance and personal fulfillment. 

I talk through all types of issues.  I want the people I work with to feel comfortable and to be themselves!  It is my goal to provide a safe space that others can share in openly without fear of rejection or judgement. 


I aspire to be the best listener I can, and to be a sounding board for clients to work through their own thoughts and feelings.  I am compassionate, but also an intuitive problem solver focused on identifying issues and approaching them from multiple angles.  

I believe that with the right combination of support, learning, and self-discovery that incredible personal growth is possible, and that you can create a mindset that brings you joy.  I know because I have done it! 

I want my clients to feel safe, empowered, self-confident, and inspired!

My Philosophy on Life Coaching

As a coach I may offer multiple ideas or tools for any given problem.  I am not expecting clients to do (or want to do) all of them.  I want my clients to choose and explore which ideas are speaking to them because those are the ones that are most likely to have a positive effect.  

Coaching is both a discussion and a partnership.  I want my clients to feel empowered, and to let me know if they don't like an idea.  That way we can have a conversation about why and tailor a new plan that fits them better.  I don't think there is any one way of doing things or of living life, so it is important for clients to give to the discussion so that it takes their needs into consideration.

I coach clients over the phone.  It is my belief that phone coaching is more effective because there are less distractions.  This means that we can focus on what is important: the words and ideas that we are sharing together.  I believe that it is also more convenient for my clients so that they can talk to me from the comfort of their own home or while traveling.    

Get to Know Me

Throughout my life I have had a lot of personal struggles that I have overcome: depression, anxiety, bad self-esteem, people-pleasing issues, compulsive cleaning habits, and the death of a parent.  Over time I became very unhappy with myself, my life, and my relationships.  I was at the breaking point in my marriage and couldn't handle the stress.  I knew deep down that something had to change.  And that something was myself.


I stopped trying to change the world around me and turned inward.  I put in the work, dug deep, looked at myself openly and honestly, and slowly worked through my issues until I got to a good place.  It was a difficult process, but now I am always improving, learning new things, and looking for new ways to become the next-best version of myself.  I feel happy with my life, the people in it, my marriage, and most importantly myself.  I think that my journey has equipped me with the tools to help others do the same.  There is no such thing as perfect, but with some effort there will be improvement!

I absolutely love being a Life Coach.  Being in a career where I can help people on a personal level brings me a lot of happiness and fulfillment.  I look forward to coaching for years to come.
