What do you do?

As a Chopra* certified Total Well-Being Life Coach, I support my clients on their personal or professional journey to expand their possibilities and live their best lives! My clients gain clarity on their purpose, transcend obstacles to achieve their goals and experience more fulfillment, inner-peace and well-being.

All aspects of our being: mind, body, and spirit, are connected and play a role in the quality of our life. If one is out of balance, life can seem out of sync. I use a holistic Ayurvedic approach to uncover the source of the challenge and find meanings that serve my clients so they can create the best life imagined!

Having personally experienced the benefits of coaching, I am passionate about the powerful effects it can have on life. Coaching led me from personal, professional, and emotional prison to freedom.
I guide my clients on their path to prioritize well-being, discern purpose and move beyond whatever has them stuck. They learn a healthier approach to the areas of life that cause suffering, such as relationships, career, health, finances, environment, personal growth and more.

*Chopra Coaching draws from best practices in life and health coaching methodology, neuroscience, positive psychology, and Dr. Deepak Chopra’s life’s work. As a Chopra certified life coach, I am prepared to offer guidance and concrete support for every step of the well-being journey..

Who do you serve?

Women who are looking for something more or different in life, who may be stuck in some aspect of life, searching for purpose or clarity, better health, peace and well-being. I accompany women on their journey to get the results they want from life!

What’s one tip or piece of wisdom you’d share with new women entrepreneurs?

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are all resilient, creative and whole. Despite what life throws us, we have it in us to create whatever we want in life. When we get fearful or stuck, this is just the brain keeping us safe. This is not who we really are. Say, “no thank you, brain”, and do the brave thing that will help you grow. No go, no grow!

Most of all, be kind and compassionate to ourselves when things don’t go as planned. Learn from it, let it go and move onward!

Wishing all my brave entrepreneurial friends much love and success. Looking forward to meeting you!
