You deserve to be valued for everything you have to offer, to have meaningful and loving relationships with the people you care about and to create a life that is in alignment with your values and who you really are.
Or, at least a fraction of it anyhow.
I got fed up with pretending. I became interested in becoming fully self-expressed and started getting clear on who I was and how I wanted to feel.
Through private coaching and group coaching programs, mindfulness meditation and reflective journaling, I have been able to peel back the layers of who I really am and what makes me feel alive. Every day I devote energy and time to my self-discovery process and what life choices make me feel most fulfilled.
I am committed and honoured to help guide others through the same discovery process, getting them closer and closer to their true self. With a novel of juicy life experience, a Co-Active Coaching Fundamentals Certificate from the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) and two years of relationship, communication, productivity and leadership training with Landmark Worldwide, I am qualified to help you discover the real you and the wonder that comes along with unleashing your authenticity.
For a long time I was scared to be myself. I had a fear of looking stupid and being judged. I was your typical people-pleaser, avoiding confrontation and difficult conversations at all costs.
From the outside looking in, I was a "happy camper," and the "life of the party."
But this wasn't who I really was. What resulted from pretending was a build up of resentment. I grew resentful of myself for not following what I truly wanted for myself and resentment toward others for saying "yes" when I really wanted to say "no."
I would attempt to ease the pain with all sorts of things like over-eating, spending and other excessive habits that would fill the gaps for a while, but these habits just created more stress and self-sabotage. I couldn’t stand the thought of being rejected and I became depleted from always trying to please people.
So, what happened?
I help you uncover the blocks that are holding you back from taking the action you need to take in the area of life you're feeling stuck. I help you discover the gifts you have been given along your life path so far and how they have been inside you all along. Finally, we map out a 30-day game-plan that will ignite transformation in a chosen area of your life. Session will be held via Skype / Phone or In-person (Toronto, ON).
Includes: tailored worksheet for diving deeper
I help you let go of the beliefs that are no longer serving you. I.e. "I'm not good enough." In these 3 sessions we go to work and become aware (conscious) of the exact beliefs that are clouding your mind and soul, discover where they may have come from, make the definite decision to let them go and reprogram them once and for all. It takes a firm level of commitment to do this and that is why this package is a minimum of 3 consecutive 90-minute sessions.
Package includes: Blocks & Purpose work, a tailored worksheet for diving deeper + a tailored Self-Love KIT delivered straight to your doorstep!
Five years ago I invested in my soul's calling without having a clue what it was. I essentially invested in an idea. I didn't know what my business was, what services or products I had to offer or how it was all going to happen. But, and this is a huge but, I had an inner knowing that I needed to follow.
I followed it. I said YES without knowing how. I listened.
You are in a relationship that does not feel good.
You are stuck in a job that is draining you.
You are scared to take a leap or try new things.
You are resentful for saying yes when you really want to say no.
You are in regret from a decision you made in the past.
How can I help? I've been there.
I dated people I knew were not a fit for me and tried tirelessly to make these relationships work. At one point, it felt better being with someone rather than no one at all. I had the job that sucked the life right out of me. I have been paralyzed by perfectionism, taking zero action for the fear of being less than perfect. I have said "yes" when I meant "no" too many times to count and I have dealt with shame intimately.
So, what did I do?
I finally got up the nerve to talk to someone about it.
It couldn't just be anyone though, this person had to be a fit. In 2012 I hired my first coach, and it wasn't easy at first. I'm not going to sugar coat how it felt for me to ask for help after years of priding myself in being independent and strong. Asking for help would make me look weak, right? For 20 years of my life I thought I could handle the world on my shoulders, alone, without the guidance of anyone. My life motto had always been, "No, it's okay. I got this. Thanks for your help, but I can do it on my own. Thanks though!" This way of living brought me to exhaustion, resentment, and at times, isolation.
If you resonate with what I'm sharing, there's a great chance we're meant to work together.
Coaching is a method of powerful conversation that is typically accessed with a third-party person, outside of your immediate social and family circles.
It is a conversation that provides a pathway to higher thoughts and breakthroughs, making room for an entirely new way of living.
