Awesome you’re here!

Please feel at ease as you explore the site and ponder if I’m your person. That really is the thing…you need to feel a connection with me. It’s an uber important decision as our relationship will be the vessel for growth, self-awareness, and change. This is an important choice for you. I celebrate you’re doing this for you!

And, you gotta know, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, there’s no shame in reaching out. It’s honestly one of the most courageous acts (going for drama) EVER!

So, you’re feeling overwhelmed, confused, fighting that damned feeling of shame, and, well, like you shouldn’t be looking for someone like me. Been there (keep scrolling for my story).

Thing is, we’re all just human beings. Doing our best with what we have. It doesn’t matter what level of education we’re wondering around this world with…we get screwed up! It happens. Just as well own it and get some support. There’s no need to feel miserable and settle for just surviving everyday of your life. Honestly, you have other choices!

Come over to the other side, try counseling. I’m not lying, you’ll learn how to THRIVE!!!!

My Crash and Burn Story

I’ve crashed and burned in both my personal and professional life. I thought I was bullet-proof and took on way too much while too many life circumstances collapsed around me. Being a high-achieving professional, who didn’t know how to ask for help or, sadly, accept help, led to me making poor choices and falling in to a miserable place in my life. My most prized relationships took hard hits as I suffered in silence. Yep, I failed to Thrive! Thankfully, with major body, mind, and soul work, I found my way to a Vibrant Life Style. Now, most days, I feel confident, empowered, encouraged, energized, and sassy! But, it was a journey!

You’re here because you wanna Thrive. I’ll partner with you to help you gain a positive, empowered perspective on life. Together, we’ll work to help you build practical coping skills while tapping into your strengths. You’ll gain clarity. Ah, man, clarity is where the magic starts! You’ll find yourself feeling empowered and confident, ready to hold your head high and face life – FULL ON!

What are you waiting for? The Vibrant Life Style you desire is just a call away.
