Certified Life Coach, Registered Acupuncturist and BodyTalk Practitioner by trade
Intuitive, visionary and optimistic by heart
Fiercely heart-centered by choice
Dedicated to helping create more growth, healing and well-being for ourselves, our families, communities and the world we live in.
Life goals are personal. Healing is personal.
And in my experience working with clients for over 10 years, I believe that you must bring your whole self (mind + heart + body) if you want to thrive in today’s world – because it’s all connected.
Optimal Health, Wellness and A Vibrant Successful Life starts from the inside – out. I love helping clients find healthy perceptions of themselves + strengthen their relationship with their mind, body and spirit so they can know themselves as complete, whole and empowered.
I’ve worked with clients 1 ON 1 and facilitated workshops for parents, couples & women and I’m always on the lookout for people who are interested in applying their unique bodymind wisdom to their most personal life goals and challenges.
Drawing from real-life experience, my approach to coaching and wellness carries a personal philosophy, “Life is greater than the sum of its parts”. This philosophy sparked the vision for my practice and continues to inspire clients to invest in their unlimited opportunity for personal growth, healing potential and numerous ways to start positively impacting the world around them.
When mind, heart and body energies are in alignment, life goals become joyful and easier to manifest and our health thrives along with it, supporting us even more along the way. There is something magical that happens when we live from that authentic place and connection to our true self. It’s an undeniable ripple effect that flows to all areas of our lives and the world we live in. I truly believe that life is here for us and not against us and that our body can be our greatest ally in creating the life we want – we just have to be willing to go within and listen.
I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have been trained in a range of modalities which includes life coaching principles, BodyTalk WholeHealthcare techniques and Traditional Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture therapies. I recognize that health challenges arise for a variety of reasons and that every person has a unique balance that should be addressed. I’m trained to look at the whole person – emotional, physical and environmental influences – so the true underlying causes of dis-ease and challenges can be revealed. The ideal goal is to find the best, most dynamic point of balance within your unique bodymind complex so that you easily can respond to issues life throws at you with ease and grace.
Through education, communication and offering a variety of services, my goal is to help you build a life you truly love and find the best fit for your unique BodyMind health needs.
I promise to use the knowledge, training and experiences in my journey to help you embrace your own. Here’s what I know, You already have all the answers within you, and often times you just need to have another person pull it out of you. My commitment to you is to bring you the very best of what I’m living and learning while keeping it real and honest as I go. So please don’t expect me to have all the answers but do expect timeless wisdom, thought-provoking ideas, a sense of well being + increase in awareness with every session.
I understand the challenges that can arise the moment we decide to change and strive for a better life – it affects us on so many levels (physical, mental, emotional etc.) I am truly grateful for all the teachers in my journey that have supported me to grow and flourish. So, I’m here to say that you don’t have to do it alone either. I’m here to offer you my support and unique skillsets so you can define success on your own terms and build the life you know you are meant to live.
So, if you’re ready to take your health and life to the next level, I invite you to connect with me and I would love to work with you. Let’s create wellness from the inside out. You bring your willingness and commitment to create your best self and I promise to help you tap into the deepest wisdom within you so you can reach the highest levels of your creative potential in life.

about my credentials, experiences, passions
and how it all began…
how it all began…
I grew up learning the value of hard work and perseverance as key traits to success. Study Hard. Work hard. Push through to meet goals and deadlines. And yes, all this hard work served me early on in my corporate career where I earned numerous promotions and accolades including OHI’s Top 30 Under 30. At the time even though I was grateful for all I have accomplished, my mind was exhausted, my body ached and my heart yearned for something more. On the surface I felt successful yet somehow it felt like I had lost my spark for life. I thought that maybe if I just address the physical aches and pains in my body so I can feel better then everything else will be okay – little did I know where this journey would take me. I explored various modalities and they each benefited me in different ways but it was when I came across energy medicine that the spark within me was re-ignited. The benefits were multilayered and not only did I feel better physically, I felt more alive, aligned and clear on what my next steps were in life. Deep down I knew that the corporate chapter of my life had come to an end. It was time to move on and re-define success in my own terms – where personal growth, heart based goals followed by hard work and balanced off with self-care has become my foundation for success. A life-transforming decision that led to a fulfilling practice and a beautiful family that I adore.
For as long as I could remember, there are 2 things that excite me and bring me joy – a good challenge and helping others. From setting my own career goals, helping friends find their “a-ha moments” when their in a jam or simply finding creative ways to parent my fierce children and fur baby, my curiosity and desire to understand the big picture along with my natural ability to bring ideas together from seemingly disconnected events has contributed to numerous successes and joys in my life. Helping myself and others has been and continues to be the biggest challenge, and yet the most rewarding experience of all. The reason? I like seeing people thrive. I get super excited when I see people come out of their shell, overcome limiting beliefs, pursue their passions, dreams and goals in life while being fiercely true to themselves. This is what I refer to as living a “Fiercely Authentic Life”. And what my personal experience has shown me over and over again, is that the moment we decide to be our true self is the moment we start aligning to our life’s purpose. Something truly magical happens when we live from that authentic place and connect to our true self that creates a ripple effect flowing to all other areas of our life – Physical, Relationships, Career, Vocational, Financial, etc.
I’m proud to have created a meaningful & fulfilling integrative practice that helps people like you connect to your true self (aka innate wisdom) to manifest your heart-based life goals and naturally heal on all levels.
When I’m not helping people, you can find me cuddling up on the couch with my family, playing with my japanese spitz dog or laughing out loud with friends playing games & exploring the outdoors.
