"I became a life coach, not because I felt that I knew a lot about life, but because life had challenged me to my core at such a young age. I had always been a highly sensitive empath who could feel on such a deep level, and before I understood this gift, it used to feel more like a curse. I can remember walking through my college campus and feeling happy, then sad, then overwhelmed; all just on the way to class.
At age 19, I was depressed, anxious, bulimic, suicidal and 75 pounds heavier. I was miserable. I was lost. I was overwhelmed by the darkness. However, it was this darkness that ultimately led me to finding the light.
After several years of mild improvements in therapy, I found life coaching and my life began to transform before my very eyes. Things started to make sense, I learned how to create energetic boundaries, how to distinguish my feelings from others, and how to create real change in my daily life!
It was like someone put the sparkle back in my diamond. I had found the inner work that freed my soul and I wanted to teach people how to get their life back + do this work!
I went back to school, got my undergrad in psychology, my Master's in Transpersonal Psychology (later in the game), got certified as a holistic life coach and then took the leap to start my own coaching business in 2008.
12 years later and seasoned with a ton of mistakes, I stand here today to share that you can become what you know deep down you were made for.
To me, life is about being your true self and having the courage to share that with the world. So I stand before you today as me; a work in progress, highly motivated to help you get into alignment with who you really are, so you can co-create the life and career you are seeking to experience!"
