"IS THIS (SELF) LOVE?" -Bob Marley
Welcome to my coaching page! As both a Licensed Professional Counselor and Life Coach, it is an honor to walk with you as we gently explore the past while moving courageously forward into the present. I will help you dive deep into the emotional blocks that hold you back from reaching your fullest potential while helping you gain the confidence and self-love needed to live your best life!
If you are feeling anxious or depressed, want to work through childhood trauma, improve your self-confidence, get clear on your passion, improve your relationships, or make your dream a reality, I will provide the support and accountability you need. I will be your BIGGEST fan. I already believe in you and your potential to heal, evolve, and create the life that you want. Why? Because you have all of the tools. My job is to help you find this strength, and remind you how you shine. :)

Why Work With Me?
My Credentials and Training
When you work with me, you get more bang for your buck. Why? I am not just a life coach. I am a coach, a teacher, and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with extensive training and experience in all aspects of education, coaching, mental health, assessment, diagnoses, and more. I received a top-notch education at Northwestern University, with a rigorous academic program and immersive clinical experience that prepared me to be the best clinician I could be. My “emotional toolbox” is overflowing with techniques, tools, and the ability to hold space for you that will accelerate your healing process and get you on track to creating the life of your dreams. As an added bonus, we also have the option of incorporating music, art, writing, and other forms of creative expression within our time together, or we can take on a more traditional approach. It’s up to you!
Personal Commitment to “The Work”
I have been dedicated to my own personal growth, mental health and healing for well over a decade. Not a day goes by that I am not reflecting, practicing self-awareness, reading a personal development book, listening to a self-help podcast, practicing self-compassion and being patient with myself, or trying to improve myself in some way. I have always been committed to breaking the cycle of trauma in my family by doing my own healing work and taking part in my own therapy and coaching sessions each week. I believe that the best way to heal the world is to heal ourselves, and I will commit to doing my part by continuing to do the work alongside you.
My heart is my biggest strength and best feature! As a kid, I used to shoot “love beams” at people to spread joy and make people smile. Remember the Care Bears? Well, I wanted to be one and not much has changed since those days. I am loving and kind, highly sensitive, genuine, empathetic and intuitive. I am able to become quickly attuned to the feelings of others and create a sense of safety and love in every relationship. I have been told that I am easy to talk to and that I make people feel comfortable. I believe this is true! Nothing is more important to me than making people feel seen, heard, loved and valued. Having a big heart makes me a wonderful supporter and you will quickly feel how much I care about you.
I’ve Been Around the Block
I’ve had more emotional experiences at my age than I can count. My life has not been easy, but it’s been extremely rich with opportunities that helped to create an emotional resilience I never knew was possible. Through depression, anxiety, trauma recovery, “coming out” and exploring my sexuality, emotional and physical abuse, death of an intimate partner, codependency, career changes, moves across the country, living internationally, heartbreaks, starting a business, launching a music career, losing everything, starting over, and more, I have seen it all and then some. These experiences do not define who I am, but I am grateful for them because they made me STRONG. I learned first hand what it means to struggle and to overcome adversity. This allows me to authentically connect with your pain and to make you feel validated and less alone in your experience.
