Why is helping transform lives my passion?

My own struggles with food allergies and addiction, paralyzing self-doubt, loss of confidence, and lack of enthusiasm left me desperate to create more joy and satisfaction in my life. 

I enjoyed my thriving career as a highly respected massage therapist, and had a loving supportive family, but a voice in my head kept telling me I was never enough, and that something vital was missing.  Over the years I tried alcohol and food to fill the emptiness.  With the help of AA I overcame the desire to drink in 2002, but the food addiction flourished for another 15 years.

When I discovered I was allergic to dairy, wheat and sugar, I knew that something major was going to have to shift in order for me to make the changes necessary to regain my health. 

Turned out that the biggest shift required was in my thinking!

The thoughts we think can inspire us and lift our energy, or they can drain us and leave us feeling depleted.  Once identified, energy-draining thoughts can be reframed to conserve, or even boost energy.  I’ve been a huge fan of Abraham Hicks since 2010, but as much as that work resonated with me, it wasn’t until I found the tools of coaching that I actually learned how to implement those teachings into my life.  Coaching gave me the tools I needed to make the changes I had wanted to make for decades, and infused my life with abundant energy.  I discovered the ease with which transformation can happen when you have the support and tools you need.  Coaching transformed my life!  I feel more engaged, excited and energized every day.

Now I am passionate about helping other women rediscover their own innate power to create healthier, happier, more energized lives.  With core energy coaching, I helps women identify where they want to grow, uncover & overcome what’s holding them back, and make progress toward their goals, in achievable increments that result in sustainable change.

Self doubt can be banished.  Confidence can be increased. Dreams can be manifested.
