Bio

Having grown up in the Bay Area, I was exposed to the all or nothing mentality and competitive nature of this environment from a young age. I also grew up in a household that was loving but filled with the emotional rollercoaster brought on by living with an alcoholic parent who underwent over 30 operations and the ceaseless financial struggles that accompanied them. As a result, I found myself experiencing a deep sense that something was wrong with me which showed up as challenges related to confidence, anxiety and depression in my earlier years which eventually transformed into serval forms addiction. Addiction to substance, addition to success, addiction to the need to be liked and accepted by my peers in a hope that I would finally find a sense of internal peace and freedom. Unfortunately this drove me to bring an exhausting all or nothing mentality to every area of my life creating a never-ending cycle of pleasure and pain. It wasn’t until I almost lost everything including my own life that I realized what had been preventing me from having the life I really wanted. I realized that no matter how much I achieved and how much recognition I got, it was all meaningless until I could learn to let go of seeking perfection and fully accept myself the way I was, my faults, weaknesses, and strengths alike. This realization changed my life. I was no longer limited by my past because I didn’t let it define me. This created space for things like physical health, mental health and the pursuit of a path that filled me on a deep level, versus a path that I felt trapped in out of fear of judgment or fear of the unknown. I found the courage to take a path less understood and less accepted and it has created a sense of freedom I never thought possible. What it really came down to was transcending all the modern beliefs around what it meant to be successful and happy so that I could uncover the only place this answer could exist. Within myself.

This is now my mission in life, to support those who struggle to let go of societal expectations and accept themselves enough to show up authentically and fully to the most meaningful areas of their lives. To support those who feel burnt out and stuck reconnect with their mental and physical strength and energy to embark on a path that’s truly meaningful. To learn that what they need deep down is not selfish or a pipe dream but a core piece of who they are and that it is okay. The beaty in this path is that you begin to let go of what you think you need and discover the truth of what you really need to show up as your best self.

I support my clients on this journey with 30 years of wisdom derived from 7 certifications in health, nutrition and life coaching as well as the personal conquering of many challenging life situations such as depression, addiction, anxiety, burnout, and physical health complications and more. I have also worked as a coach in the Bay Area for over 10 years of my life serving and helping hundreds of amazing hard-working people build healthier and happier lives. Most importantly, I am a student myself. I don’t just talk the talk but I walk the path as well practicing everything I preach. This business is a living example of me owning my truth. It is a reflection of me facing the same internal doubt that so many high performers experience and stepping into courage to share my personal gifts. It is a commitment and promise to serve those who are ready to live a life of elevated alignment and step into self-mastery, fearless authenticity, and life purpose alignment to build a life they don’t feel the need to retire from.
