You are an individual -
A soulful mix of lightness and darkness, fears and loves.
You deserve to feel it all. Understand it all.
And experience the wholeness only deep self-knowledge can bring.
Inner-confidence coaching guides you to that place,
Of mindfulness, total acceptance, and peace.
A world full of color. A heart full of gratitude.
Learn to stand strong in your unshakeable truth.
Too many of us pour endless energy into satisfying our hunger for approval, love, and success. We seek validation from everyone around us, until one day we wake up and realize… we’re no longer in control of our lives!
I’ll help you get back behind the wheel and tap into your true purpose. It’s time to finally understand who you are, and who you want to become.
You don’t need “fixing”. You just need to remember what you’re made of.
Our work together sets the stage for a stronger connection to your inner knowing – the voice that steers you into your authenticity, and away from a co-dependent way of being. Through lovingly guided self-discovery, paired with tools to center and ground you, I’ll help you step into a kinder, more aware lifestyle.
How I got here:
I’ve been a lifelong explorer of mind, body, and spirit healing, and I know firsthand the powerful impact the inner confidence process has on a life.
I grew up as a little girl in a family that wanted a boy. My young mind decided I needed to earn my parents’ love, and from there my desire for validation was relentless. It wasn’t until decades later, when I was leaving a marriage I’d almost lost myself in, that I realized my need had taken me over.
I had given and given and given because I wanted to be loved… and I had given it all away.
The divorce left me with $15 in my pocket, but I had my freedom. I declared bankruptcy, and spent two years in a cozy rented room getting back on my feet.
When you’re left with nothing, there’s nowhere left to go but within. I was forced to get honest with myself. For the first time, it was up to me to decide exactly how I was feeling, and what I wanted. I listened to the call of my heart, and was blessed with wonderful teachers and coaches to support me along the way.
Nowadays, I live an amazing new life with a man I truly love, in a snug little cottage near the woods. My days are filled with simple pleasures and the work I adore, and my nights are lit by starlight.
I’m finally at peace. And helping others (like you) reach this point has become my life’s work.
My deep love of people and the human experience has led me through a wonderful bouquet of fields. I’ve been a grade school teacher, psycho-educational consultant, university lecturer, counsellor/therapist and now coach (you can check out my fancy list of credentials below).
Why coaching? Because the journey of self-discovery should have only one person at the helm: you. I’m here to listen and guide you toward your answers, but it’s your life. And it’s time you claimed it.
Over the years, I’ve been honored to coach hundreds of clients in my one-on-one sessions, courses, and group workshops. They hail from every corner of the globe and all walks of life, and their accomplishments never fail to inspire me! But you don’t have to take my word for it. Click here for reviews
