I Live My Life
Sunny Side Up
I Help Others to Achieve Their Dreams
I am lucky; that's how I always describe myself. The lucky part is for sure true, but so is the the fact that I choose that mindset every day. I believe in my version of the law of attraction: what I spend my mental, spiritual and emotional energy on, shows up in my human life. I’ve learned to stay in close communication with my inner voice, to be conscious (and careful) about what my mind is going on about, and to keep my heart and senses open to messages and opportunities.
Learning to filter out the noise (think anxiety, self doubt, meaningless distractions) so I can focus on what I value most, has been as tricky for me as it probably has been for you. But now, I can say, I live a life that I empower to be filled with love, wonderful experiences and endless opportunities.
My Approach to Life
I live by the idea “I’m right where I’m supposed to be." Rather than fight or question it, I try to soak it in (which honestly can feel like sucking it up sometimes) and take in the lessons and look for the opportunities. It’s never too late and fresh starts are always right in front of us.
I love discomfort! It tends to be pretty painful and scary, but that is where the good stuff happens. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to live there for very long; in fact, I get laser focused to figure out the source, so I can move forward ASAP. But whenever I’ve been in extreme discomfort, the phase that follows is glorious, where most of my most wonderful life changes play out.
I started out as a flautist, going the distance with an undergraduate degree and a career in performance and private teaching. Turns out that wasn’t my dream (I got caught up in hereditary values, hopes and dreams), so I dug deep and opened myself to the Universe, who reconnected me with my inner voice and enthusiastically reminded me that I’d always wanted to be a therapist.
Fast forward to the present: I have a Masters Degree in Psychology, had a long career in mental health, and have refined my therapeutic approach to one that aligns with life coaching.
Rather than following a traditional therapeutic approach that focuses on the past, I love to focus on the present and where we want to be in the future. I have found this approach really helps us to clarify our purpose and corresponding goals, which in turn creates long lasting results.
Personal growth is just that, personal. It’s a vulnerable process, and I’m committed to helping my clients get to where they want to be in the most painless and efficient way possible. And truly, I feel honored to partner with my clients on their journey of self discovery.
