let’s begin the exploration.
I view my coaching work as a sacred privilege. When clients choose to work with me they make a choice to lay themselves bare, air out every corner of their emotional interior, and be ruthlessly honest with their feelings and insights. I don’t take this trust lightly.
In my role as a spiritual life coach I am essentially a guide. You have the road map. I am just helping you to see it more clearly, decipher the mysterious symbols, and make clear the direction and destination.
As a coach, my commitment to my clients is to ALWAYS provide compassion, neutrality, authenticity, full presence, and professionalism.
Beyond those core tenets, I promise to use the full scope of my intuition, knowing, and higher guidance to take you deeply into conversation with yourself and unearth the answers you have been seeking.
What will our coaching sessions be like?
Lasting between 60-75 minutes, each session begins by getting a clear understanding of where you’re at energetically so we have a baseline to gauge our progress by. It also helps you become skilled at “checking in” and understanding where you’re at on the Emotional Guidance Scale and what that means.
Next, by having you clearly communicating your intentions for the session and providing any relevant information necessary, we can be laser focused on an area in which you want to create a shift, make progress, or manifest your desire, whatever it might be.
Then comes the gold. With compassion, trust, and courage we explore deep power questions, processes, and your own highest knowing and intuition for the answers and direction you seek. It’s not about me simply leading the way. We’re arm in arm on this path.
We will always end each session with some type of practice for you to work on until our next session. Part accountability, part anchoring what you’ve learned, these “assignments” are primarily to help engrain these new awarenesses and knowing inside of you, to begin to reset the old wiring with new, updated systems of consciousness so that you can begin living your life in a new way.

What is our coaching not?
It is not founded in religion. Spirituality for me is rooted in the concept that you are connected to source energy–whatever that looks like for you–and that you have access to that power, energy and information AT ALL TIMES. That said, I welcome clients of all faiths and absolutely honor the place that religion may have in your life. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me.
It is not “talk therapy.” We don’t focus on “storytelling” which keeps us energetically connected to the situation or circumstance. Yes, I want to understand what’s happening in your life, but our attention will always turn towards the feelings, the beliefs, and what the story means to you. Then I guide you through it towards awarenesses and changes that better serve you and your life.
It is not psychotherapy. I am not a healthcare professional. If in our work together we uncover issues where you would be better served seeking professional medical or psychiatric advice I will be upfront about that and work to connect you with the right people if that feels right for you.
As Tony Robbins put it:
“Imagine yourself getting ready to climb a mountain. You could either hire an expert sherpa and guide for your expedition or a doctor. Which should you choose?
If you are physically unwell, or would be in danger if you even attempted the climb, a sherpa and guide wouldn’t do you any good. You need to be at a baseline level of good health before you can make the climb at all, so if you’re not, you might need to see the doctor before trying something that challenging. However, if you’re healthy and just need someone to help you with climbing strategy, carrying the load of supplies and finding the best path, the sherpa and guide is the best bet.
In this example, the therapist is the doctor. He or she gets you well enough to take on major challenges in your life by exploring your mental and emotional well-being. The life coach is the sherpa and guide. He or she has an expert knowledge of your climb and can help you reach the summit.”
Who is my coaching practice great for?
My coaching practice is ideal for you if you:
- Feel like you’re on the verge of making significant changes in your life, but you’re just not sure what they are or how to make them
- Want to magnetize the things you want in life in order to draw them to you more quickly and easily
- Long to change outdated or unserving patterns or beliefs
- Want to be more aware of your feelings more often in order to live intentionally rather than on auto-pilot or in default more
- Simply want to feel happier and more content
My coaching practice is likely not for you if you:
- Want a quick fix or magic bullet
- Don’t want to put the time and attention towards practicing what we learn between sessions
- Aren’t comfortable with opening up, going deep, and really feeling it all
I began my life as a spiritual student in early grade school. I attended seminars led by my mother, a spiritual coach and teacher, and came to love the experience of these gatherings and their processes, meditations, dyads, journaling and movement. It felt natural and effortless even as an awkward child. That environment was perhaps the place in my life where I felt the least awkward.
I spent most of my young life focused on writing and went on to earn a BA in Creative Writing. Faced with a pointed question from my father about how I was going to earn an income with said degree, I quickly recalibrated and enrolled in Culinary School with the idea of becoming a food writer.
This lead me down the path of a bonefide “career” as a marketing and branding strategist in the culinary realm. Despite the requisite ladder-climbing and hard work, I remained rooted in spiritual practice, waking up most days well before dawn for my “spiritual time” (coffee, candles and journal) before my hour-plus commute, attending seminars, and gobbling up content from a litany of teachers who would guide my path.
I was and have always been a voracious spiritual student and have been greatly influenced by many teachers along the way. Here are a few that are especially dear to me and my journey:
- Matt Kahn
- Sanaya Roman
- Nick and Jessica Ortner
- Tony Robbins
- Esther Hicks
- Louise Hay
- Carolyn Myss
- Danielle LaPorte
At a Law of Attraction Meet-up group one night, a man offhandedly mentioned an author and teacher named Christy Whitman. I looked her up when I got home and quickly ordered her book, “The Art of Having it All.”
I had never considered a career as a life coach before that night. But when I found Christy’s work and was introduced to the QSCA (Quantum Success Coaching Academy), the coaching certification program she has run for the last ten years, something within me clicked and I knew it was what I was going to do.
The year-long certification program was intense, multi-faceted, and exactly what I needed. I not only found the concepts and methodology that I’d been yearning for in my own spiritual practice, I found within myself a deep love of coaching and guiding others on their own spiritual journeys.
