Your Best Life Activator


Did you know that all it takes to become a coach is to wake up one morning and decide you’re going to be one? Kinda cool, right? And also . . . BANANAS! I won’t lie, I’m really weirded out by the coaching world and the many snake oil salespeople and lost-folks-turned-leaders who hang out there. But the true essence of coaching is totally my thing! So, since words matter, I guess we can say I’m a coach . . . or a sorta, kinda coach? . . . or a CBNR (Coach, But Not Really)?


I’ve gone through some pretty crazy things in my life, and I’ve had my fair share of dark times. The struggles, though, have become my strengths. Somewhere along the way, I made a commitment to transform everything I’ve lived and learned through into tools for learning, teaching, spreading light, and becoming the best possible version of myself. Life has been my best teacher, and I love to share what it’s taught me.


I’m a classically trained therapist who’s spent the last decade keeping hundreds of people company on the journey of going through—and growing through—life. I may not be the most conventional, but I honor my training, and I’m proud of that foundation. My clients have been incredible teachers, and the lessons I’ve learned from working with them are worth sharing with you.


Namaste really honest here and say that a lot of modern spirituality sounds like fairy-dusted nonsense to me, and people who try to teach me how to be spiritual usually make me roll my eyes. But I’m a firm believer that faith in something bigger than ourselves helps us do the courageous work of living and giving our best, so I’ve committed to the path of seeking higher consciousness (with both feet firmly planted on the ground, thank you very much!).
