you get one life, are you living it fully?

"I work with people who have big dreams and huge goals. They want to make a difference in the world but they’re stuck, scared, and overwhelmed. I help them restore hope, figure out where to begin, and make a plan so they can step into their brilliance!"

squash fear. 

This is a big deal and big investment and it should be, because this is your one and beautiful life. My role is leading you in designing, planning and making sure this dream of yours happens. Most often the things that hold us back are within us, our own anxiety or confusion. Don't waste another day waiting.

MY Book, Hello Gorgeous... 

It’s hard to change. I know this firsthand. I’ve been in the business of lifestyle change (behavioral change) for over fifteen years. And as one of Mayo Clinic’s “Innovative Leaders” in the area of wellbeing and lifestyle, I am intimately familiar with what moves people through the levels of change (Transtheoretical Model of Change) with the most ease and grace. I also know what freezes people in their tracks, makes them flee or fight against adopting the very habits they desire.

Creating the lifestyle of one’s dreams is within anyone’s reach—and there is no secret handshake. Instead, the only secret is a ten step system, that when utilized, can liberate anyone from fear, stagnation, or simply a mediocre life.

This is personal to me. I know firsthand what it feels like to be in a place of fear, or for lack of a better word “stuck”. For much of my life, I felt as if I were on the outside looking in—as if everyone else knew the password to success and feeling inner peace. Everyone but me. Simply surviving life rather than truly living it stems from many things. For me, it was years of grappling with health issues that left me feeling lost, both physically and spiritually. I’ve had three open heart surgeries, anxiety disorder and bouts of depression. Needless to say, I was often misunderstood.

I thought the way I was “living” my life was indeed a permanent condition. One day I got tired of being afraid—so much so that I decided to step straight into the storm of my fears. Toe to toe with the lies I had been telling myself (or been told / taught), I confronted them. One-by-one. I discredited them and took away the power they had over me. It was a battle that took all my courage, strength and faith, but it paid dividends. I wasn’t the only one who saw the changes and I started to share how I transformed with others. They too transformed and experienced inner freedom for the first time in their lives. It was then that I decided to share these tools.

My audience is the everyday person: the working mom, the barista, the entrepreneur, the artist, the bus driver, the teacher, the farmer, you, me. This program is for anyone challenged by physical illness, sickness or chronic and acute disease. This program is for the sensitive person (‘gentle flowers’ I call them); the dreamer, the helper and caretaker. This program is for people in recovery, anyone who struggles with fear, anxiety, depression—anything that is holding them back from living a fearless life.

Once we’ve lived with these kinds of challenges, it can feel impossible to relearn how to live without fear. Only when we surrender our old ways and allow for God’s gentle transformation will true beauty come forth and provide healing in a way you could never do on your own. Slowly we unwind from the mess of our life circumstances, our past and our faulty beliefs. All of this inner work become a landscape of peace, freedom and beauty. The body then reflects this transformation outwardly, like beauty for ashes.
