If not now, when?
I heard… we need to be held to be healed. I know this to be true. When I had the courage to reach out and ask for help, usually after I struggled and tried to do it on my own, healing happened. It happened much faster than when I trudged through on my own—trying to figure it out, thinking instead of feeling my hurt, anger, grief, depression.
And if you find you’ve been trying to do it on your own. That’s ok. Be kind and compassionate to yourself. Then, tune in… notice what you need then ask for what you want.
Have you noticed how tomorrow turns into next week, next week turns into next month, and before you know it, a year has gone by. My love, if not now, when? You are not alone. I am here to walk this journey with you.
My favorite thing to do is help you walk hand-in-hand with love, compassion, and courage as you navigate loss, life, and/or love. Let’s heal what needs to be healed, celebrate what hasn’t been celebrated, and plant the seeds of tomorrow, today.
I see you. I hear you. I love you.

Living a divine life rooted in wonder.
I grew up in what I believe a strict home and believed what I was taught was the truth. It served me then, not so much now. I lost my dad to cancer when I was 17 years old, he died on his 38th birthday. My dad always breathed belief in me and told me I could do anything I set my mind to. As an adult, my mom has been my biggest cheerleader.
Playing practical (good humored) jokes on each other makes me laugh. The element of surprise. My husband and kids donʼt always think itʼs as funny.
I married my high school sweetheart Dave. We lost our first son, Calvin, early in our marriage. I also had an ectopic pregnancy when I was 20 and miscarried baby EM after losing Calvin. We now have 3 beautiful and healthy children – Samantha, Sevren and Kate. Dave and I separated for just shy of one year during our 13th year of marriage. I had no intention of reconciling. The Divine had another plan. Since reconciling, our relationship is a loving partnership. I feel beyond blessed!!
The Voice makes me cry. The talent, the dreams, the goosebumps.
Iʼve felt most fulfilled in positions where I was helping others which led me to the field of Life Coaching. In 2009 I became a Certified Life Coach after training with Martha Beck best-selling author and monthly columnist for O – Oprah Magazine. I earned my Masters Certification in 2011, MindBody Endorsement in 2012, and Reiki Masters Certification in March 2013. 2014 I began Priestess training. 2016 finds me working with Earth Medicine which feels like home and sacred to my soul.
I love the sun on my back, being barefoot, dirty feet, sitting by fires, laughter and music… just a few of my many loves.
Through the years I found myself in search of something more yet feeling guilty. I had the devoted husband, healthy children, warm home, nice cars – what was wrong? I was taking care of everyone else and found I didnʼt love or know myself, and I didnʼt even realize it. Once I learned how to connect with my body, be on to my thoughts (mind), follow my hearts desires (soul), and connect with Earth and Spirit, my life changed.
My gift is being with grief and the grieving. I love honoring those who have passed, celebrating their beautiful life and walking alongside those left behind. I can’t think of a greater gift.
That being said, 2015 surprised me with a hard period lasting a year and a half. Yes, even with all this knowledge and practice in living a soulful and sacred life, life happened. I went through a deep depression, had chronic back pain—later diagnosed as degenerative disc disease, watched my oldest child struggle through a life challenge, and lost my hope in women’s circles after a bad experience. Isn’t it refreshing to know we are all human. Not to mention I’m perimenopausal. I found myself saying, “I don’t feel like me, this isn’t me!” to my husband often. Oh the emotions. And then I reached out. I let myself be held. I began to heal.
Thank you for learning a little more about me. I’d love to learn more about you. Reach out for a Free Consult or Grief Connection Call.
ps~ one of my favorite exercises I did early on in my coaching career was discover my Style Statement, take a peek here! To this day it hasn’t changed. I deeply connect to my Style Statement, Natural Expressive.
One regret dear world, that I am determined not to have
when I am lying on my deathbed
is that I did not kiss you enough. ~Hafiz
