Reinventing myself has been a major theme througout my life. I have experienced many personal evolutions going through a divorce, co-parenting, getting re-married, having a blended family and navigating a career change. I am now on a mission to help other women going through a "reinventing stage" in their lives, overcome fear and confusion, so they can create clarity and success in their life transitions.
Being a chronic people-pleaser, I would put others on a pedestal and felt shame if I let anyone down. I frequently felt overwhelmed trying to be who others wanted me to be and ignored my feelings. In May of 2007 my mom died unexpectedly from a heart attack. There were a lot of things she wanted to accomplish, but never did. She would frequently say she would do things "one day". Eventually "one day" never came for her. This was a catalyst for me to take an honest look at my own life. I did not want to stay stuck in the "one day trap". It took me some time, but eventually I took big action after hitting rock bottom in missery.

In 2010 my life began to dramatically change when I started to go to therapy and open up to supportive friends. I stopped avoiding my feelings and started exploring, embracing and undersdtanding. This healing was both liberating and scary because the new person I was becoming, was actually the real me, burried in the beliefs and expecations of others. I could no longer be who I used to be and tollerate what I used to tollerate. A few months after going to therapy I filed for divorce and the journey that unfolded was chaotic, messy, beautiful and fulfilling.
In 2017 I became a certified coach through iPEC (Institute For Professional Excellence in Coaching). This training has helped me use my experience to help other women who no longer want to stay stuck in the "one day trap".
Work With Me
I offer 1:1 coaching, teach workshops and speak to groups. Before working 1:1 with anyone, I offer a free Clarity Call that is a sample coaching experience with me. If working together feels like the right fit, we can then discuss working together further. There are no obligations to sign up for anything when participating in a Clarity Call. Do you feel like you could use some clarity and support? Click on the link below to schedule your Clarity Call.
For more support, check out my YouTube channel Confidently Be You. Confidently being yourself can feel intimidating, especially when you want to do things that are different from the people around you. That is why I created my YouTube channel Confidently Be You. Each week I share inspirational conversations with others about how they overcame fear and forged their own path. I also share videos covering a variety of topics.
