Who you are

You are overwhelmed with life.

You are busy. Your time gets filled up with so many unimportant things.

Sometimes you have a busy day or week that you look back on and nothing truly meaningful got done.

You've been struggling and feeling stuck.

Some days you wonder if you are depressed.

You may have lost someone close to you in the last few years, and just can't figure out how to find purpose and happiness in your life.

Sleep is difficult.

Relationships are hard.

You may wonder why you are here anymore.

You sometimes question everything you've ever been taught to believe in.

Maybe you feel life is unfair.  And wonder why bad stuff happens to people like you.

Sometimes the routine of everyday life has you bogged down and feeling uninspired.

Life sometimes seems empty.

You think “I should feel happy now”.

Sometimes you actually feel guilty and like a failure.

Often that thought creeps in that says “I'm not good enough”.


You tend to overeat or overspend too often.

There's just something missing.

Who I am

I know.  I've been there.

You see, my life was going along “OK” for many years.  I had a husband of about 20 years, 4 beautiful children, a middle class life in a small Upper Michigan town, and a “good” job with “good” benefits as a Director of Finance at a University Foundation.

Life should've been good.  We were just about to build our dream home in the woods.  We felt like life was working the way it was supposed to.

I actually felt blessed many days…4 healthy children, stable jobs for both my husband and I, longterm and fulfilling marriage, family vacations, etc.

Then everything changed. 

Our 17 year old son, Trevor, decided to take his life early in the morning in January, 2012.

This threw my “normal” life into chaos.

We had no idea this was coming. We had no idea Trevor was depressed. We didn't know where to begin in dealing with a suicide.

(If you want to learn the whole story, go to my book page HERE)

This began a long trek for me of broken sleep, weight gain, declining health, a worsening marriage, usettled kids, and increasing unfulfillment in my accounting career.

It wasn't until approximately 4 1/2 years after Trevor died that I finally decided to choose life again.  This decision turned my life back to hope and healing out of despair and grief.

It was during my healing that I wrote a book, lost 30 pounds, started back on the road to good health, quit my job, and finally found my purpose in life.

Now I'd like to help you heal too.  If you know there is a better life out there waiting for you to claim it, then I'm the coach for you.

I have been where you are.  I have been overwhelmed with thoughts and stuff and life in general.  

I have felt stuck and unfulfilled.  

I have wondered why I just couldn't be happy.

And I made it…I'm here today living a joyful, fulfilling life.  I'm loving myself and the future I've created.  And I'm so thrilled to help you get here too!
