I am a nurse, health coach, and natural advocate for the health and happiness through your Body, Mind Spirit.
All of us deserve happiness, wellness and connection to each other. My passion is to support parents through the hope and belief in abundance. It is a privilege to serve you and your family.
16 years ago I was suffering from chronic alcoholism and participating in a domestically violent marriage. Our three teenagers had experienced this chaos for a dozen years. And although I was a remarkably strong and intuitive parent, I was weak and vulnerable as a partner. I could not stop the cycle because I could not put myself first. The oxygen mask theory I now call it.
But on Halloween in 2002, my 16 year old son said. Mom, I will not live like this another day. One of you has to go. Brian was saying YES to his wellness and gave me the example to say Yes to mine.
I left that day with the shirt on my back. My sober date is 11/11. I was saying yes to the unknown!
What is mind boggling is, despite this conflicting upbringing, my children are incredibly centered, confident, aspiring, loving, kind empowered adults.
It was time to bring those same strengths into my wheelhouse!
I learned the systems I had used to survive were no longer useful. I had to create new pathways everyday. And over 16 years my life became Phenomenal. I found a God of my understanding, attending nursing school and graduated at 52. I became a photographer to bring balance to my creative element, and studied multi-dimensional healing to become a Reiki master.
Personally, I healed the wounds of domestic violence by owning my part in those early choices, I became spiritually engaged through the 12 steps of recovery, with retreats and mentors enhancing the experience every year. I invested in individual therapy and group therapies for a decade.
The culmination of so many resources brought me to a moment where I asked, from the bottom of my heart. WHAT DO I WANT NOW?
The answer was immediate “to help families make choices that bring wonderful health and abundant happiness into their lives.
The Health Coach Institute answered that call. The coaching methodology of HCI remarkably mirrors all my years of evolution. The changes that took me 16 years to assimilate into my life are consolidated into the TCM technique and transformation is inevitable in 90 days.
Say Yes to one conversation...because one conversation today... can empower all your tomorrows.
Having been to the gates of hell and deciding not to stay, I said yes to the unknown and a journey of abundant discovery followed. It began with sobriety, which lead to nursing school, photography brought balance of the intellect and creative parts of me. Then I became a Reiki Master because I was healed of a brain aneurysm by my healer/teacher and then sought the next means of helping people through health & life Coaching
So easy and unexpectedly powerful!
So many of us have invested in therapists, counselors, and endless self-help books, with improvement but still seeking something more. Coaching is a frontier that looks at our habits and finds out which ones no longer serve us. Then through a transformational coaching program sustainable change happens because new options are discovered.
