I decided to become a Life Coach when I became more self-aware. I was able to view my life’s challenges as opportunities, due to my acceptance of gratitude; despite my ongoing struggle with anxiety as a result of much trauma.

Being widowed at age 37, after 13 years of marriage; and the emotions my daughter (then 10 years old) and I had to work through, inspired me to want to help others.  I also wanted to share our families’ experiences of living with a husband, dad and RCMP/police member who suffered with PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) for nearly 10 years, until the day he took his own life.

However, my anxiety held me back from actually sharing my story, my daughter’s story, for over 6 years; the story of what really went on behind closed doors in our marriage, in our family, and what happened with our younger daughter. I am working on that now. Bit by bit, piece by piece. My fear of judgment from others, my inability to overcome my low self-esteem and reframe my negative thoughts.  I had to learn to love myself more… even something as simple as accepting a compliment was, and at times, still remains a challenge. I am working on my journey, as I help you with yours.

I thought that to be your Life Coach, I had to be perfect, despite my struggles.  I had to  overcome them in every way! But… no. My journey as a Coach has evolved into more than that, even I have grown.

“Admitting your weaknesses does not diminish your strengths: it shows your courage!”                                                                                    – Erin Andrews

We all have a story… a journey… negative and positive, happiness and sorrow.

My experience with trauma, grief and loss does not begin, nor does it end with my husband’s suicide in 2012.  There have been other unimaginable struggles along the way as well.  But my struggles don’t define me.

I embrace the journey, practice gratitude each and every day, and I address my own limiting beliefs with mindfulness, wellness practice, and personal/professional development… I am not going to claim to be perfect!

I am generally a private person, so this is weird for me… even my friends and probably most of my family aren’t aware of my struggle with anxiety due to trauma. But here it is!  And the struggle is real!

However, I am happy, very happy.  I have achieved balance and a fulfilling and authentic life.  That is what my journey has evolved into.  That is what I want to help you achieve!

What is a Life Coach?

A Life Coach is a professional who works with people who want to improve and live their lives to the fullest. A Coach offers new perspectives to identify hidden strengths, passions, and deep rooted desires of their clients. They help their clients create a plan of action to turn dreams into reality and provide support and tools to facilitate their objectives to reach those goals and attain dreams they didn’t think were a possibility!

A Coach is a strategist, realist, innovative partner and strategic thinker.

Coaching is based on accountability.

Accountability to your:

*dreams and goals

*specific action steps

*measurable results

It is this foundation that will create results for you!

I would love to know more about you.
