‘21 Certificate of Excellence

You have found your way here for a reason. There are no coincidences. I believe that when we live better, we feel better AND when we feel better, we do better in the world. I specialize in guiding people to get clear on who they are and why they are here. To find purpose and meaning in the everyday. And from there - I work with clients to find careers that are more rewarding and purposeful. I work with business owners to take them NEXT LEVEL - whether they are just starting out or have been in business for a wile. Let's set up a call to see how I can collaborate with you going NEXT LEVEL. I also specialize in relationships - as every interaction we have is a relationship. And the better relationships that we have - the more happy and meaningful and fruitful these connections will be. And that is true for our personal relationships, business relationships, AND the relationship you have with yourself. Learn how to be a better listener, a better communicator, how to set healthy boundaries and form a more loving relationship with yourself! But “living better” is not always easy. As our life unfolds, we can lose sight of our life’s purpose, our inner voice or divine perspective. We can neglect to experience the beauty of our life or succumb to the paralyzing effects of negativity, anxiety and fear. We can feel lost or alone, depleted or stuck. We develop unhealthy patterns to numb our stress. And even more concerning is that we can often be unaware of these influences and their profound consequences. But here is what I know well…the knowledge and the solutions that we seek come from our amazing journey within. The reality is, you really do have the ability to transform your life. You can establish and maintain a connection to that incredible inner self and harness that power to truly live best life and experience your greatness. It may sound overwhelming or too "hard" to accomplish -but I know firsthand that you can achieve this. My clients know this as well. It all starts with the decision to do it differently – to try a new approach to life. To develop new habits and better manage thoughts and emotions. To have a deeper awareness of who you are and what you want. To implement tools and practices that will bring about intentional and radical change. As your coach, I don’t dictate the answers. We will work this experience together. And I will guide you each step of the way through a transformative process that will lead to a more abundant, joyful life full of connection, meaning and purpose. If you are ready to take your life experience to the next level then this coaching may be just right for you. I believe in you. I will hold you accountable but I’ll be your biggest fan and cheerleader. Our work together will be challenging, but also fun and rewarding. The best part of my job is to watch you tap into your unlimited potential and connect with your higher self; to see you get excited in those a-ha moments, implement change and realize dreams. I love this work, I believe in this work and I would be honored to work with you. Coaching sessions can be in person, via skype/zoom or phone. I offer potential clients a FREE 30 minute exploratory call so that I learn more about where they are and where they want to GO. Price Quotes: My coaching options are created specifically with my clients goals in mind. Therefore in order to give you a proper quote, I need to ask you a few questions to get clear on what you want to work on and goals you wish to accomplish. Let's chat!

What do you love most about your job?

Everything! What I love most about my job is that I get the opportunity to work with amazing individuals who know deep within themselves that that they are capable of more and are ready to go after their dreams. Whether that is a new career, starting a business or taking that business NEXT LEVEL. Or, maybe they want to have healthier, more enjoyable and fulfilling relationships. Or finally attract and find meaningful love. Or maybe they want to learn better ways to manage their time, find more joy, or explore a develop a powerful spiritual practice.

I love helping people create lives full of connection, joy and meaning. Guiding people through a holistic and transformative process that will allow them to really discover who they truly are, where they want to go and what they want to do. Then I get to show them how to get there cheering them on all along the way. There is no greater reward that holding space for individuals and organizations to connect to their higher self, remove the blocks that have been standing in their way and seeing them live their dreams.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I’ve been where you are. What saved me was coming back to the light – to the connection with the Divine that we intuitively have as children, but that so often falls away.

I committed to reconnecting to the love energy that flows through all of us. I put in the work to change the thoughts and beliefs that kept me trapped. I prayed, I meditated, I journaled. I studied. I set goals.

And then something amazing started to happen. As my thoughts changed, my world changed. As I started taking simple, daily actions, my life began to unfold in miraculous ways. I discovered my dreams — and the courage to go after them.

Those dreams included becoming an interior designer. I established my own firm and was named a Rising Star and One to Watch by House Beautiful magazine. Magazines like House Beautiful and Veranda featured my projects. I contributed to the Huffington Post and even designed the Post’s Meditation Room.

As a designer, I saw the tremendous spiritual power of having a space that reflects who you are and how you want to live. Consciously created homes support joy, inspiration and a lifestyle that enhances our connections to ourselves, our loved ones and to the Divine. I realized I wasn’t just designing spaces — I was helping people design their best lives.

I live a life beyond my wildest dreams today. I have found joy and connection and purpose. And that purpose is to guide other people to do the same. Life can be so crazy and stressful. We can get overwhelmed or defeated, tragic things happen, we get knocked down. But we don't have to stay that way. We have the power within ourselves to RISE UP, to OVERCOME and to THRIVE.

I know that my purpose is to be a guide for others transformation that will lead them to live richer, more joyful lives and to connect to their greatness!!

Why should our clients choose you?

Why Me...
Because you don't want to just talk with a coach...you want measurable results!

Don't take my word for it...check out my testimonials here on Bark and also on my website and see what clients have to say about their result.

Experience - I've been trained in numerous areas of personal and spiritual development. I have also developed tools and processes that lead to transformation – proven effective with my personal experiences and other clients.
Personality & approach – I create a nonjudgmental and safe space to explore ones authenticity. I bring a sense of calm, light, laughter and love to a process that can feel intimidating or overwhelming at times..
Connection – I have a gift and passion for helping people to connect to their divinity, exploring whatever that means to them and how to connect on that level. Often overlooked in other approaches, it is a cornerstone to building one’s best life. Once accessed it unlocks a reservoir of endless possibility, strength and love.
Yin & Yang – as much as I can make the coaching process a joyful experience, I can also be no-nonsense when it comes to accountability. It’s the difference between clarity and positive, lasting change.

Why this matters…
If you don’t enjoy the process, there tends to be unwillingness to do the deep dives necessary to uncover blocks. Also, without enjoyment and fun there can be a lack of motivation to take action toward your goals.
If we don’t access the spiritual aspect(whatever that looks like for you personally), then we limit the transformative possibilities.
Without rigorous accountability – there will be lackluster results.

Life Coaching FAQs

Your professional life coach will be able to advise you on the full range of coaching available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted life coach today.

You can have as many or as few life coaching sessions as you like. Many life coaches operate over the phone or via the internet so the sessions can easily fit around your schedule. Some people hire a life coach once every few months, some people have a session once a week.

Life coaching sessions will typically last up to an hour. Often after an initial assessment, sessions can be conducted over the phone, face to face, over email, via Skype/Zoom and occasionally through instant messaging.

During the session, your life coach will ask you a number of questions, such as what you want to achieve in life, what areas you're unhappy with and where you'd like to see yourself in the future. Although a life coach will work with you, it’s often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas you have to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don't feel comfortable with and all sessions will be confidential.

Life coaching is focused on your present and your future. Coaching accepts your current reality and looks to improve your outcome moving forward. Life coaches are not health professionals and they do not diagnose you. By contrast, therapy focuses on your past and looks to delve into past actions and patterns. It is analytical but not action-oriented.

Most mainstream health insurance providers do not cover the costs of life coaching because it is not considered a mental health profession in the same way therapists and counsellors are.

Life coaches do not need to have any formal or academic qualifications but you may want to look for life coaches who possess an industry-specific qualification, such as the Life Coaching Diploma or Personal Performance Diploma (PPD).

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which shows you reviews from past customers who have used their life coaching services.

A life coach is a trained professional who aims to help and guide individuals to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. They support clients on a journey to rediscover their own strength and abilities. This can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential, managing health conditions and achieving life ambitions.

By harnessing techniques based on core psychological principles and intuition, life coaches empower clients and provide a toolkit of teachings to confidently face difficult challenges and overcome emotional barriers.

Life coaches can specialise in one of these particular areas of coaching: career coaching, executive business, group coaching, health and wellbeing, performance management, personal development, relationships, retirement, spiritual and youth coaching.

Rapport is one of the most important parts of life coaching. If you feel uncomfortable with your professional, you are unlikely to gain much from the session. It is advisable to get in contact before you book a session to meet your life coach so you can gauge how comfortable you are in their presence. It is worth talking to a few potential life coaches and ask questions.

Yes! As long as you have a strong internet connection, then your life coach can deliver sessions via an online video chat platform. Alternatively, it can be done over the phone.
