You do not need to continue to feel weighed down by self-doubt, insecurities, and shit that stresses you out.
You and your life have a greater potential, and you know it.
You want to be the type of person who courageously honors her truth and all of who she is...even when it’s hard. You know you can be this version of yourself. You are her. And being her now is the key to having the life you want.
And that ideal version of you? She likely…..
has that envy-inducing level of calm confidence... not insecurities that keep cropping up
speaks up for what's important to her, regardless of whether or not it ruffles feathers
feels happy and excited about her life... not stuck in comparison
treats her body like a beautiful best friend... not a problem to be fixed
eats delicious, nourishing food without stressing about what she “should” be eating
deeply trusts her intuition and has the courage to make decisions and lead from that place
has intimate and strong relationships, and a career that she truly loves to wake up to every day.
You want to be her so bad, and honestly —
have been trying to bring her to life.
If we’re being real here:
Every time you try to step forward into that version of you and that life, you keep getting stuck.
Why does that keep happening?
The truth is -- if you want to actually become that person, it's so important to do the inner work that frees you up to be her.
It’s like that famous quote I’m sure you’ve heard, “you can’t keep doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results.”
If you want to get to that next-level version of you, the way you do things needs to be “next level,” too.
The way you SEE yourself gets to be upgraded.
The way you TREAT yourself gets to level-up.
The way you THINK about yourself gets to be transformed.
Your daily HABITS and the way you manage your time and energy get to be elevated.
And as you work on these pieces of yourself and how you’re living and being in the world, you free yourself up to become who you know you're meant to become.
This is fun, exciting, big work. It’s about stepping into the fullest version of who you know you are meant to be.
You get to be a happier, more joyful, more confident, more powerful, more expressed version of yourself.
YES to that.
And if it were the easiest thing ever, we’d all already be there, you know?
To evolve into that next-level, the right kind of support is your biggest ally.
You need a roadmap.
You need someone who has been in your shoes, who’s able to point out where you’re getting in your own way, and can guide you down a new path that feels so much better.
You need encouragement and accountability to stay the course instead of dropping back into your comfortable- “this-is-the-way-I’ve-always-operated”-zone.
That’s where I come in.
I know what it’s like to long for a new reality but feel so stuck in the process.
(More on that in a little bit!)
I’m here to help you envision that next version of yourself and then step into her. Together, we can...
Transcend the influence of your oldest limiting beliefs and critical thoughts and elevate the way you see yourself.
Tap into your deepest truths, speak them out loud with confidence, and align your actions with what you really want.
Fuel that beautiful body of yours in life-giving ways so you have the energy and clarity to become who you want to become.
Connect with the wisdom of your intuition and use it fully as your compass for every decision, challenge, or daily routine.
Are You Ready To Clear Away What Stands Between You & The Life You Really WANT?
When I was young, I never thought about personal development. I was just content and happy with who I was, no big deal.
But in high school,
I started questioning myself.
I remember it so clearly — it was junior year and my always-skinny, athletic body started rounding out and getting fuller.
AKA → PUBERTY...
My 17-year-old mind saw it as the biggest threat to my lovability.
Which led to my first diet. My first attempt to control my body and make her smaller.
I was so freaked out that if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be okay. Loved. Liked.
This is also when I started to become RIGID.
As I started to control food, I became uptight as hell. I was snappy with my boyfriend. I became very serious and stressed about school. I was more closed off at parties.
My concerns about food and needing to control my body turned me into a total stress-case who was always in her own head rather than just living her life.
While I wish I could say I snapped out of it, this trend lasted for the next 10 years.
10. Freakin'. Years.
I went to college, moved to New York City, started my first job, and while things were “fine” on the outside, I was deeply struggling with my relationship with food and my body. And, ultimately, myself.
I was also a MESS when it came to men.
In early high school, I used to think I could be with whoever I liked. I would just go right ahead and tell my crushes I liked them (usually on AOL Instant Messenger, you know), and I was decently sure something would come of it. And if not, no big deal.
As it turns out…
Years of insecurity, battling my body and questioning myself killed my confidence.
I was now in a place where it was hard for me to even imagine someone who I liked actually liking me back.
I looked back on my high-school confidence and yearned to have it again. Even an ounce of it.
How did I used to be so bold and confident? How did I get so messed up along the way?
I looked at other women around me going out, having fun, dating, and believing that’s what they deserved.
And I felt so far from that.
I wanted so badly to be a woman who:
trusted herself to eat what she wanted...without getting bogged down in the "shoulds".
felt free to have fun and fully enjoy her life...instead of being weighed down by insecurities.
felt confident putting herself out there...without always worrying about being liked or rejected.
was comfortable in her skin, embracing all of her quirks and imperfections.
My desire to have all of this fueled my dive into self-development work over the next several years.
One little crumb led to the next and to the next, and soon I found myself slowly breaking free from all the crap that was weighing me down and holding me back from being the woman I wanted to be.
Eventually, I learned that the thoughts I had
about myself weren’t necessarily FACTS.
As it turns out, I didn’t have to believe things like, “I need to be skinny for an amazing man to love me”.
I learned how to stop dieting and trust my intuition around food. I learned that, left to her own devices, my body would not in fact lead me to a gallon of ice cream every day; rather, she naturally craves a balance of foods that is perfect for her (and I lost 40 pounds when I stopped dieting and just learned to freakin’ listen).
I learned - as cheesy as it sounds - how to become my own biggest supporter vs. my own biggest critic.
I learned how to regain my free-spirited high-school self around men again - having fun, being so completely vulnerable, putting myself out there, tapping into my feminine sensuality, going for exactly who and what I wanted (and got married to the man of my dreams… literally).
Oh, and I quit my finance job and started my business which, for the past 8 years, has helped other women create the same internal (and therefore external) changes.
And let’s not pretend like THAT hasn’t brought out 1,000,000 lessons in getting out of my own way and allowing myself to "up-level".
I’ve taken myself from a corporate career to having my own business.
From having just a few clients, to working with thousands.
From having a casual blog to making six figures in my second year of business.
From being petrified to ever run a retreat, to running three retreats in one year.
From being scared to be on camera to hopping on Instagram stories every day like it ain’t no thang.
This has taken so much courage.
So many vulnerability hangovers.
So many failures and mistakes.
So many mentors, so I can learn the way.
So many lessons.
I am constantly working on getting out of my own way to evolve into next-level me.
Right alongside you.
And I can’t wait to teach you everything I know, everything I’ve learned, and everything it takes to get you from where you are now to who you are meant to become.
Yes, it takes work to create changes. But it doesn’t have to be so “hard”, and you certainly do not have to do it alone.
Welcome to this community. A place where you're supported to do the inner work that allows you to break free from what weighs you down and step into a more confident, intuitive, deeply aligned version of you.
