Do you want a life that is rich and full of meaning?
One that is filled with curiosity and inspired self-inquiry?
One that helps you to embrace challenges as opportunities?
One that has you feeling awake and alive in your body?
If so, then you’ve come to the right place.
I love to explore the soul. To ask questions that encourage me to expand and be curious about what I can do with my life. I don’t shy away from the dark shadows of the world, but rather lean in and ask them to inform me, help me, teach me. I am equally dedicated to stripping away unnecessary angst and story inside of myself so that I can live vibrantly.
And that is where all of my material – written and spoken – comes from. I love to work with people that are interested in all levels of self-discovery and growth: emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. If that means something to you, take a look around my site and you’ll get an even better idea of who I am and what I am here to offer.
If you are ready to dive into the art of self-aware, expansive living, join me in the comment areas on my site or for an in-person event. I can’t wait to share more!

When I was a young girl,
I was either singing or dancing all of the time. In my bedroom, in the kitchen, on stage, on the way to school. Outbursts of pseudo-opera were common for me, as were spry, no-choreography-needed-thank-you dance moves. My connection to unbridled self-expression was pure and real.
Right around age 18, something changed.
I went to college and started getting serious. I studied hard and well. I set my sights on a corporate life that would prove my worthiness and be the marker of Great Success in my life. I stopped dancing. My singing voice disappeared. So did much of my spontaneous laughter.
And then one day I cracked.
I went running out into the fields behind my office building, tears flowing freely as I gasped for breath. Something was wrong. I was allowing someone else to tell me who I was. In fact, I wasn’t even sure who I was or wanted to be anymore. I felt caged, desperate and hollow. My 26-year-old body felt ancient. It was that dramatic.
That was the year I quit my job.
I left the Midwest and moved to Boulder, Colorado. My soul started to slowly return. I won’t kid you: it was an intense, not-always-pretty process to get out of the hole I had fallen into.
I began to dance.
I explored yoga, meditation, Reiki, bodywork, and essential oil therapy extensively. Gobbling up anything that would wake me up – body and spirit – again. I was alive – really alive! And my passion and path in life was effortlessly revealed: To guide others to live purposeful, embodied, soul-full lives.
Whatever your history. Wherever you are in your life now. Remembering and fully nourishing who you are is right around the corner. And I’d love to be on that journey with you.
