Because ultimately, finding myself has been something that I’ve felt challenged with as well. And in the process of learning lessons in the hardest way, I felt alone and misunderstood. In my loneliness, I took solace in the idea that someday I’d help others to feel a little less lonely and a little more understood. I knew someday I’d lead by example to help others learn to embrace their uniqueness and own their story – even the painful, less sexy parts. In those weakest moments, I dreamed big, refusing to believe that a person’s beginning should dictate where they end up.
Over the years, I’ve endured family trauma, tragedy and circumstance that ultimately led me to move away from home at the ripe age of 15. I’ve had my heart broken a number of times. I’ve had my trust trampled over in ways that I could have never anticipated. I’ve made career transitions that seemed unlikely and pushed past huge mental hurdles. I’ve experienced loss, joy and everything in between. I’ve found new ways to connect with myself, new ways of understanding and interpreting the world around me, and I’ve used my challenges to launch me into greater success than I ever thought possible. I’ve looked my fear in the eye, took risks I never thought I’d take, and traveled to parts of the world I didn’t even know existed. Was any of it easy? Absolutely not. But yet here I am, happier and more fulfilled than I ever knew I could be, continuing to refine my own path and take enormous risks in order to achieve my wildest dreams.
My story may be different from yours but here’s what I do know: there are underlying principles of humanity that unite us all. And we can use these underlying principles to connect ourselves to the billions of people across the globe who share our same humanness. But before we can ever truly connect to the world around us, we have to take some time to connect with ourselves. We have to SEE ourselves as we are, and allow ourselves to be bigger than our bodies. We need to dream bigger and stop settling for less.So why am I doing this? To speak my story. To share my truths. To live deeply and authentically, leading by example to help other people find their own authenticity.
As your Certified Life Coach, I will help you find your own authenticity so you can live a life you thought was only possible in your dreams. This is not therapy – we won’t focus on the past or diagnose you based on an existing set of conditions. This is not consulting – I don’t provide advice or “do the work” for you. What I will do is create a confidential, judgment-free space for you to express who you are as you learn to feel at home in your own skin. We will go through some exercises together to help us both identify and understand the areas you’d like to work on together. I will remain curious with you, asking dozens of thoughtful questions, hearing you fully and completely as you unravel your own brilliance.
I will help you define your dream life and, most importantly, I will help you get there.
