You might call me a “perfectionist in rebellion”. Fear of failure and not being good enough robbed me of many joys and experiences in my early adult life.
My desire for control manifested itself in issues with my weight. I had been trying to lose weight for many, many moons. I was stuck on this ideal image – a perfect me that would match what I knew I had inside.
I equated thinness with beauty, sexiness, and success but had convinced myself that I didn't have the discipline or motivation to keep it off for good. I was ready to free myself from the merry-go-round of fad diets, taking deliberate actions – some big and some small – and putting myself on the path to wholeness.
And that was it. I had had enough!
I just needed to know what to do next.
That is when I found my therapist. She taught me to be more present, tune into my own needs, prioritize my health, and follow my own path.
I gained confidence, left a job that didn’t serve me, and began to accept myself as God had made me.
From this point forward, every aspect of my life changed.
I learned everything I could about connecting my mind, body, and Spirit. I allowed my dreams to become reality. I was tired of feeling big and playing small. So I decided to open my own therapy practice. And that is where I found my power.
In addition to working with private clients I also obtained a coaching certificate from the Institute of Eating Psychology. As a therapist and coach, I’ve committed the rest of my professional life to helping others find freedom and joy that comes from letting go of what no longer serves them and prioritize what truly matters.
And I get to live my dream of finally achieving balance between meaningful work and play, with plenty of time for family and beautiful beaches.
Blending my therapy roots with life coaching is my sweet spot. I am able to share the tools and strategies I have picked up along the way, and use my strengths of making connection and being visionary to help my clients stop the struggle, and uplevel their lives.
When I’m not online chatting with my group or clients, you can find me at one of the many local coffee shops, heading to the gym for yoga, or planning my next vacation. I also love reading self-help books and bike riding.
Having 2 boys; 3 if you count the hubs, I get to participate in plenty of guy stuff such as, relaxing at the cabin, time at the race track and skiing time. My cat Jersey is known to chill with me while I work and relax.
If you are ready to upscale your life, live confidently, and experience wholeness of mind, body, and Spirit, then I invite you to check out my programs and book your free clarity call today. It is free, and we might just be a match made in Heaven.
A time to chat, share coffee (virtually of course), and for you to get some clarity on what it would mean to navigate your life; your way.
