For years I struggled with my weight, my purpose, insomnia, and deep stuck sadness. Now I realize, my illnesses stemmed from not dealing with early traumas. With the help of talented holistic practitioners and my coach, I found my way back to flow. Now that I am healthy and confident in my body my mission is to help others realign with their best selves. In order to do my best work as a coach, I have to stay in the work myself. Currently, I am studying with my shaman in New Mexico and researching new healing techniques to serve my clients best. Through my studies and own experience, it's imperative to address each challenge through mind, body, and spirit for radical transformation. I address the emotional root with my clients first. Then, we add in mental and physical practices to cultivate longevity. This way my clients gain the tools to face challenges and transform them into epiphanies.
I coach because we are all healing from something. Healing is not available for FedEx overnight. But with commitment to the work and belief in healing, anything is possible. Everyone has the answers withing. Sometimes we need someone to objectively guide us back to our divine knowing. Through shadow work, flow, accountability, my client’s happiness, creativity, and productivity skyrockets.
My coaching is powerful because I encourage, inspire, support, and guide my clients. I do not sugar-coat situations. In order to grow and create radical transformation, honesty must be employed from both coach and client. I create a sacred and safe place for clients to shed old ways and step into their power.
My methods, framework, and skills:
I use a flow philosophy (combining both types of flow: the Taoist principle Wu Wei and the state of hyperawareness) to coach clients. I also employ techniques such as mindfulness, enneagram, archetypes, and the law of attraction and more to craft an individualized journey back to your best self.

My mom is a health coach and Reiki master, so I grew up in a household where holistic health practices were the norm. I knew what Echinacea was when I was five. However, I only changed my lifestyle and career when insomnia inspired me to reconsider my choices. I began to slow down and let go of my perfectionistic tendencies. I guide my clients to discover their emotional root, add exercise and healthy food they love, and practice flow activities to rediscover their best selves.

I've always been spiritual, but it wasn't until I experienced chronic insomnia that I fully embraced my spiritual side. On an emotional level, my illness was telling me to let my past go in order to heal. Many of my clients have experienced profound healing by facing their trauma and sitting with those uncomfortable emotions, which is energy in motion. If you want to heal, you must let this pain move through you. It's hard work, but I promise it's worth it!

In order to continue to grow, you must cultivate inspiration and do what you love! You may not be able to leave an unfulfilling job tomorrow, but you can make tweaks to cultivate joy and a plan to ascend to your dreams. Howard Thurman said, "Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." Whether you need inspiration or self-confidence, adding more flow into your life will get you there!
The training at Radiant Coaches Academy emphasized working with the mind, body and spirit.
