Get to Know Me

I once was 'not good enough'

For decades, making a difference in someone's life was something I desired but always seemed 'just out of reach.' It was 'good enough for everyone else but not for me.' I believed I was too broken, too wounded, too everything, to have anything to offer anyone else. The garbage of life was trying hard to smother the glowing ember underneath. Hope was elusive, discouragement a constant companion, and purpose only a dream never to become reality.  Sound familiar? I get it.

After decades of downplaying the events of my life and their effects on me, I finally reached out for help. That started the long, arduous process of thawing my heart and starting to face my pain. It has not been a journey for the faint of heart. To willingly face all that had stolen my life up to that point was not a process I wanted to endure but needed to. It has been a long journey to recovery, not just from my eating disorder, but from my depression, anxiety, and PTSD from being a childhood rape survivor.

Everyone wants to make a difference in some way but often believe they have nothing to offer because they don't have it 'all figured out.' I'm here to say all it takes to help the person behind you is to be one step ahead. I'm grateful for the opportunity to be that for others.


I am a Master Certified Life Coach to encourage others in their journeys, telling them the same thing I have lived and learned: it's okay to not be okay, and NO ONE is 'too far gone.' You matter and your dreams can be reality now! We all have purpose and sometimes we just need someone to come alongside us to whisper hope and encouragement. Maybe the issue is self-confidence, relationships, stress management, anxierty, goals, or something else. I would welcome the opportunity to walk alongside you in your journey of discovery. I look forward to hearing from you.

Now...I am a Voice of Hope!
