With an expertise on finding truth and beauty in the relationships we have with ourself and others, I am a passionate (and TEDx) speaker, dynamic thought leader, author, NLP practitioner, top podcast host, cancer survivor, solo parent of three girls…and taco enthusiast,
My first bestselling book, To Call Myself Beloved: a story of hope, healing, and coming home, is the self-love manifesto and guide book I was so desperately looking for to help navigate the many dramatic changes in my life, and couldn’t find. I’ve been interviewed in media including Refinery29 Canada, CNN, ABC, CBS, NPR, CTV, Elephant Journal, the Toronto Star, and Thrive Global…
…and could literally talk about human connection all day long (which I do on my podcast, How To Be a Human). Why? Because I know intimately that every relationship we have - in business, life, and love - is built on the foundation of the relationship we have with ourselves.
It would be my pleasure to help walk you home to yourself.
I was lying on the floor of my family room with my beautiful baby girls, looking at my perfect kitchen in my perfect house living my “perfect” life…and feeling suffocated by loneliness. The more I numbed this feeling out, the more I drank, the more I shopped, the more parties I threw and the more people who attended, the more lavish and perfect they got…the lonelier I became.
Lying there in loneliness, I had the painful inner self-talk moment of asking “how is this not enough for me?” Followed quickly by the terrifying realization - you know, from that inner voice that just knows what’s up - that “nothing will be enough for you until you are enough for you.”
I knew in that moment that I had to make some serious decisions that would catapult some serious life changes, and ultimately called Time of Death on my perfect looking life in my perfect looking marriage - a pattern I had seen modelled in my own childhood, the illusion that everything was perfect from the outside in…but from the inside out? Wow. No.
This kind of major life realization that catalyzes a series of (what feels like) earth-shattering events is usually dismissed or flippantly referred to as a mid-life crisis - something negative that we ‘should’ seek to avoid at all costs.
I say this is a mid-life ascension, baby; it’s a remarkable opportunity to check in - in a profoundly honest way - to see if the life you’re living feels juicy, engaged, loving, supportive, and grounded…
…or if it feels like sleep walking on autopilot, doing things the way they’ve always been done because it’s what you’ve always known.
Is it your marriage?
Is it dating fatigue?
Is it stagnancy in your own growth, or lack of vision?
Is it living in this body that just doesn’t feel like your own anymore?
Is it the disorienting feelings that come from processing (or repressing) all your childhood ‘stuff?’
Is it the desire to feel seen, held, or supported in your career - but feels more like meh? Is it the chipping away or loss of hope that comes with each and every one of those (super common) adult feelings?
You climbed all the right ladders, checked off all the right boxes, and you feel like you should just feel grateful for all you have and all you have done.
There’s this gut feeling—buried wayyyy deep down—that’s telling you something is off.
It feels harder than it should to keep it all together.
You’ve let past experiences, stories, expectations, judgments, opinions hold you back too long. There’s MORE to who you are, and you deeply desire to simply BE yourself - in every aspect of your life, and each of the relationships therein - and you can’t quiiiite put your finger on what that is - or what that looks like.
*Cue the terrifying internal dialogue:
What if this is just how I am?
What if there’s just no real happiness here for me?!
Is it even possible for me to feel a different way?!?
What if…I really am broken?!?!
That’s where I come in.
We work together to create massive clarity, cultivate a deep confidence, embody your courage, and strengthen your connection to your Self - which enables you to strengthen your connection to everyone else - while defining and maintaining beautiful, healthy boundaries and next-level communication skills that allow you to be who you are…with a renewed skillset of actionable tools to help navigate this giant curve ball called life.
(That is a fancy way of saying “I help high achieving humans figure out their sh*t and feel more grounded in who they are.)
I’m not just another f*cking coach.
My clients are often high profile, public facing, highly accomplished humans who get to the top,only to realize it can feel a little lonely there. Often they turn around to realize there aren’t many - if any - other humans up there they feel safe or comfortable enough to trust.
Let’s face it - relationships (including friendships) are not designed to withstand this level of processing radical self-honesty with unconditional acceptance.
And that’s when people call me. I create a safe and sacred, comfortable and confidential container to feel. Your. Sh*t.
Because you have to feel it to heal it - and healing it is what brings connection, emotional intimacy, and alignment back into each and every relationship you have.
Utilizing my Master level NLP / EFT training, mindset work, VITA sex, love, relationship, and intimacy coaching certification, and the kind of wisdom that is earned and learned over a lifetime - backed up by a deep emotional intelligence and keen intuition - I help you to identify and heal the emotional blocks preventing you from finding true balance, success, and fulfillment. In your relationships with your partner, your children, your family of origin, your career…and honey?
“I had been carrying around emotional baggage for over 40 years. This forced me to say things out loud that have only been in my head and admit truths that I didn’t want to face, and it also made me realize that some of the stories I was telling myself were not true.”
MS, VP Corporate, Toronto
“I did my breakthrough day around my relationships and expression—in business I rock it but I still had that need to prove myself with the people I love most.”
Arya, Spiritual Business Coach, Nashville
“I am usually quiet and humble about my accomplishments but she helped me to not only own them but to be loud about them!”
