Hello and Welcome
Self-Worth Coach & Author
Hello and Welcome
Here’s a little bit more about my journey so far…I’m a SF Bay Area Native, that called LA-LA Land, or in my case, the literal ‘City of Angels’ home for nearly a decade. Even though I can’t fold a fitted sheet to save my life, I still believe in ‘impossible things’ happening in the most unexpected of ways. Injuries sustained due to a serious car accident became the catalyst for my own Self-Healing Journey.
Practicing, and eventually Teaching, Sacred Embodiment via Practical Spirituality, Meditation, Energy Healing, and Pilates, fused with my academic background and graduate work in Psychology propelled my purpose to share what’s possible with others.
Since beginning my own business, I’ve collaborated with over 1000 private clients around the globe ranging from Hollywood A-Lister’s behind and in-front of the camera, leaders of the corporate world, entrepreneurs, retirees, spiritual students and teachers, Lightworkers, changemakers, elite athletes recovering from injuries, long-time homemakers ready to embrace their newly ‘empty nest’ with a renewed sense of purpose, and many other heart-centered women on the cusp of major transformations on every level, to name a few.
Whether one wants to Heal their Mind, Body or Spirit, it’s possible to Gently Align your Mind, Body, and Spirit with Kindness and Curiosity rather than preconceived judgments or comparisons. ‘Happily Ever Living’ is my unique, signature process to empower Self-Healing within her clients via Practical Spirituality and Sacred Embodiment Practices. Now is the perfectly imperfect time time to gently align your Mind, Body and Spirit with Love via ‘Happily Ever Living’: A unique Mind + Body + Spirit Alchemy of Sacred Embodiment + Practical Spirituality + Meditation for Transformative Self-Healing.
Tapping into my vast experience with the modalities of Sacred Embodiment, Meditation, and Practical Spirituality guides my clients to navigate their life with more choices and ease, while aligning physically, emotionally, and spiritually, with their healthiest, most aligned and embodied self.
My speciality is merging Sacred Embodiment, Practical Spirituality, Meditation, Energy Healing, and Pilates to gently empower transformative Self-Healing within each client. Personal and Spiritual Growth isn’t only about ‘fixing’ something about you or within you. No, not at all! It’s also about recognizing and owning where you Shine the most as you are NOW!
My goal is to empower all of my clients to integrate all of the different versions of themselves (mom, wife, boss, mamapreneur, coach, friend, daughter, networker, social media profile, etc) into One, effortlessly aligned Mind, Body, and Spirit. I believe that the ultimate practice of self-care is choosing to Live your Happily Ever Now, not after you’ve checked-off a bunch of meaningless boxes that the world says you need before being ‘Enough.’
Happily Ever Living guides every aspect of my life. Keep reading for some highlights from my Journey so far…
Originally, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area until attending college at the University of California, Davis. I received a BS in Managerial Economics and pursued a career in public relations and business development until a curiosity for exploring human behavior compelled me to earn a graduate degree in Organizational Psychology. During my advanced studies, I focused my research on Emotional Intelligence and Conflict Resolution. My psychology and practical spirituality inspirations are Kenneth Wapnick, Viktor Frankl and Paul Ekman.
Recovery from the injuries sustained in a serious car accident prompted me to defer plans for obtaining a PhD. I began journaling and meditating as a means to distract my mind and body from the constant physical pain I experienced during the physical rehabilitation process I undertook.
After numerous attempts to regain the shoulder functionality that I lost in the accident, I discovered Pilates for rehabilitation. My personal results from experiencing the healing effect of Pilates inspired me to share her newfound knowledge with others as a teacher. I obtained Pilates Instructor certification from Turning Point Studios in Walnut Creek, CA and also completed an additional certification in Movement Medicine.
Along my nonlinear journey of transformative Self-Healing, there was a single question that kept whispering to my heart: What if it’s possible to stop waiting and start living your own Happily Ever NOW, not AFTER everything else is perfect?
Gently exploring and discovering the answer to that question for the past seven years, inspired me to fulfill my lifelong Dream of being a published Author. ‘Happily Ever NOW’ (Not AFTER everything else is perfect) is a gentle guide to overcome the paralysis of perfectionism by embracing our Innate Guidance.
Above all, I believe that NOW is always the perfectly imperfect time to begin living your best life!
Like I love to say, ‘What’s possible for one of us is possible for all of us!’
I'm here to help you...
In 2008 I relocated to Los Angeles and expanded my Pilates business to include Spiritual Life Coaching, drawing upon my graduate degree in Psychology. In 2009, I founded a micro philanthropic movement called ’32 Favors’ in which I granted one specific favor on behalf of another for 32 days. I chronicled my experience via my first blog in a similar style to the journal I started after her car accident. I repeated the process in 2012 and added video blogs to capture the impact of sharing kindness with others.
Expanding upon the concept of relating to everyone and everything with kindness evolved into a lifelong dream coming true.
In 2015 I returned to Northern California to marry the love of my life and start a family. In 2016, while recovering from a complex pregnancy, I began writing my first book, ‘Happily Ever Now’. Seven years later, I completed it. It’s about overcoming the paralysis of perfectionism by gently embracing your Innate Guidance with Kindness and Curiosity. In the book, I share my personal journey as well as some of my clients’ that led to the awareness that you can begin living your own Happily Ever NOW (not AFTER everything else is perfect) rather than waiting for who knows how long for some unknown ‘after’ timeline to deliver your dream life.
When not seeing clients, I enjoy spending time with my amazing husband and my adorable little girl. Time at the ocean ignites my spirit, and I treasure creating new memories with friends and family, meditating, being outdoors, watching sunsets, attending Pilates Workshops, sampling the newest farm-to-table restaurant in the area, speaking weekly about ‘A Course In Miracles’ on Clubhouse, and listening to live acoustic sets.
That’s a little about me… I’d love to learn more about you and what brought you here today!
