“I am a survivor. A warrior. I am a daughter, a mother, and a sister. I am a nature lover and a lover of life. I am joyful and full of happiness. I am grateful and giving. But I wasn’t always this way. I didn’t always have it all together (and some days I still feel like I don’t).”

WHAT DO I DO?

I have three passions in life… Plants, Health and Servitude. I combine all three to help you become the happiest, healthiest version of yourself by way of learning to live your best life. Together we will identify your goals and your demons. We will work to clear a path to help you get past your fears and break through on the other side to become healthier, stronger and happier. 

AM I QUALIFIED TO HELP?

I have spent more than a decade of my life learning, researching, and getting the proper education required to best be of service to you. In 2017 I got my certification in both life coaching and nutritional studies and since then I have been on a continual path of gaining more knowledge. 

But let’s get real here for a moment, shall we? Like therapy, for example, you can take all the courses you want – but I firmly believe that the best educator in the world is experience. Text books are great in theory, and can teach you to become a good coach but you’ll never be a great coach if you don’t have the experience behind you. You have to live it to understand it, and you cannot solve a problem if you don’t understand it. So what good is a coach if they’ve not had the life experience themselves? Formal education is an asset. Life experience is absolutely necessary.

MY STORY...

Like most people, I have seen my share of dark days. I’ve suffered my share of fear, guilt, anger and shame. I know what it’s like to feel less than worthy. I know sexual abuse. I lived through drug addiction. I’ve dealt with the most toxic of people and spent years trying to build a life with them only to have it all blown away. Let me tell you about the mental health issues I’ve struggled with. Let’s talk body image issues. How about the anxiety I still deal with on a day to day basis? Is any of this starting to sound just a little familiar? I am no where near perfect… I’m just like you. Despite all my misfortunes, I am, however, happy. Joyous. Successful. I love my life and I love who I’ve worked so damn hard to become.

Life has a funny way of always trying to trip you up. One step forward, two steps back type of thing. Some days are harder than others and then there are those days where we fly so high we feel like nothing can touch us. It’s a constant roller coaster ride for anyone with a pulse.   

One day I just woke up and I was fed up. Fed up with struggling with my addictive behaviors. Fed up with fighting my demons. I was so fed up with lying to myself and everyone around me. I wanted to heal. I wanted to become so much more than I already was. So I began to search for happiness. I began to find a means to work through my fears, my demons, my addictions, and my mental health issues. 

After years of working on myself, reinventing myself to live my best life – I stand here, healthy, happy and so goddamn proud to say that I did it. I survived! Now I want to share everything I’ve learned with you. I love to help people and I know how hard it can be to seek out help. So lets chat. I can provide a happy, safe, and judgement free zone where you can begin to heal too.
