You show up at your 8 hour gig like clockwork, try not to butt heads with your significant other, make time for a little fun every now and then. Occasionally check in with family and friends. And now you find yourself asking… is this it?
Or worse… how do I escape?
Perhaps you’re always “busy” but never accomplish anything worthwhile. Maybe you don’t know how to let go of a negative experience and it’s holding you back. Or just trying to figure out where to start making changes leaves you feeling stuck, frustrated, and overwhelmed.

“The things which hurt, instruct.”
~ Benjamin Franklin
I was a work from home wife and mom living a seemingly ordinary life… until fall of 2006 when I found myself unexpectedly abandoned almost 2000 miles from my home in Chicago; far from family, friends, and the only life I knew.
My 5 year old son and I relocated to Las Vegas to start a new life as we waited for my husband of 11 years to join us once his job transfer was complete. The kicker? Only two weeks after my son and I arrived in Vegas, he demanded a divorce and removed himself from our lives. Just like that.
I felt worthless, hopeless, and scared beyond words. It took all my strength just to take a breath and trying to remain alive was excruciatingly painful… but I needed to keep my head on straight and emotions in check to give my child a chance to come out of this with as little damage as possible. I focused on caring for my son, running my business, joined a support group, and buried my head in books to better understand the human mind & behavior.
With over 20 years invested in studying, observing, analyzing, tweaking, eliminating, and documenting countless life strategies, I’ve become proficient in the art of creating and living a fun and purposeful life, filled with meaningful accomplishments, inner peace, and virtually no stress. I have a solid understanding of the human mind, compassion for all personalities, and a natural skill to uncover the underlying motivation behind an individual’s thoughts and actions.
With just one call, my clients have experienced:
- Relief from mind clutter
- Sharpened focus and increased energy
- Breathing that no longer feel strained
- Getting back their sense of self
- Freedom and relief from harmful attachment to people or experiences
- Finally looking forward to waking up the next morning
- Feeling refreshed, recharged, and ready to speed forward
- Becoming more aware of their thoughts, emotions, and choices; allowing them to be proactive in daily life instead of letting life “just happen.”
Our focus won’t be digging up and healing issues from the past. Instead, I will help you get clear about where you would rather be and quickly take the right actions starting at where you currently are. When you’re stuck, forward movement is the quickest, most effective way to get un-stuck.
When we work together, I’ll listen to your current situation without judgement, help you pinpoint what’s blocking you from reaching where you want to be, gain clarity and insights to break through layers of funk that’s holding you back, and make simple but powerful changes to go from merely existing to designing and living a life you love waking up to!
Ready to dump the junk and step into a life you enjoy? Let’s talk!
