I grew up feeling like I never fit in. That I was different from everyone else, and wondered why people couldn't see the true light that was me. I embraced the "norm" tried to fit in by squashing my light, burying my true self and it didn't work. Sure, I ended up with a great job in education and an awesome salary; I didn't realize something inside me was crying out for something different. I started getting sick, pushing myself too hard. I Gained weight, had migraines all the time and couldn't sleep. I kept asking for a sign and it happened... I was laid off my last job in education, which left me feeling like I had failed, when in fact it was the best thing to happen. I took a walk and had this clear sign that I was meant to share my story, my message and my light. It was time to uncover, explore and embrace the light that I had hidden for so long. Those small whispers of guidance that came I had been over-riding with my fear, my need to "fit in". So, I jumped. I enrolled in a coaching program, ( I had completed one years before but wanted more) and I moved across the country. Self-transformation and self-love have become a key element in my life. There is so much to learn and grow in this lifetime and I know that continuing on my own path will allow not only my light to shine, but bring courage to others for theirs to shine as well. Am I afraid, umm yeah. Anything new is scary, terrifying at times, BUT I have come to realize it is when we push past our fear, our limiting beliefs that miracles can happen. I have fought this path for a LONG time because I was afraid. Until I decided to listen, realizing I am not alone; that I can impact change in myself and others. My journey is lifelong.
My hope is that you see the light.
I worked in higher education coaching students for 8 years. I helped students not only figure out what they wanted to be when they grew up, but overcome life challenges in the process. I have a talent for diving beyond the surface and helping clients discovery their own truths. I also use my talents as an empath to understand emotions and help resolve limiting beliefs through different transformational techniques including visualization and meditation. I have been a certified life coach since 2012 and am working on another certification through Transformational Coaching Academy which will allow me to have an additional accreditation through the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I am a bit of a hippy if you want to call me that, I am interested in crystals and their properties and am very connected to nature. Being in the helping field made me realize that I could be doing more, and it was time to go after my dream of being a life coach. I understand I still have growth to do, I believe that as a coach we need to value those things we ask our clients to do and be willing to do the same.
