Inject More Joy Into Your Life

Find more moments of joy. If you've lost yourself in the busyiness of life, let's work on a plan to live more mindfully and joyfully. Reconnect with your Heart Magnet. 

Design Your Life

In this individual or group program, you dream big and forward the action to create the life you want. 


When life is more stressful than you ever imagined.

There is something different when your deck is stacked. You're capable, resourceful, and at your best you can conquer the world. But right now, you might be walking a tightrope, trying to get it all done and find time to pursuit your dreams.

If you've lost yourself in the mix of work, family, and other commitments, and you're trying to figure out where you go from here, you're not alone. I've been there, too, and what you need most of all is an open heart, a clear mind, and a guide to get you where you want to go.

Reduce Overwhelm and Anxiety

Feel more in control when the stresses and strains of life have overtaken you.  Learn how mindfulness and other techniques can bring you back from the grip and allow you to live your life with more peace and ease.

Find A Balance

I don't believe in work/life balance. I believe in BALANCE. Work is one part of your life; albeit an important one for many people, but balance is personal. YOU define the parts of your life and the assign a priority to each. Let's work together to ensure you're giving each slice of your pie the attention it deserves.

Communicate Better and Strengthen Your Relationships

So much of our life is centred around our relationships with family, coworkers, and significant others.  Are you communicating effectively and getting what you need?  Are you giving your best self?

Lost yourself in caring for others, dealing with being overworked and stressed, or perhaps apathy?  You can reconnect with what matters to you, what lights you up, and what gives you joy.  Find your true calling and make a promise to yourself to live it out in your work and play.

  • Change Yourself or Your Job

Step into your personal power and create a plan to bring your vision into reality. I will stand with you and for you as you shift your limiting beliefs, tap into your resources, and work hard to get what you what, whether that means staying in your current job, reshaping your current job, going for that promotion, looking for new work, or becoming self-employed.
