"Life is beautiful when you are excited about it!"

If I could give my younger self anything, I would give her the gift of coaching.


Why?  Because I understand deeply what it feels like to be living the unknown self:  the wrong job, the wrong relationship, the wrong purpose, pretty much the wrong life, because I didn’t truly know me.  I spent the greater part of my adult life in a state of survival after having experienced years of sexual abuse and bullying in my childhood.  I had no idea who I was or what I wanted. Or if I was even allowed to have it! I spent years living for others and their expectations for my life, running from myself, all the while I was yearning for something more.


I was successful in what I did, but it never felt like I was honoring the true me.  I worked in small business, corporate America, even had my own business.  I raised my kids, volunteered as an EMT, and earned degrees in psychology and mental health counseling, all the while searching for my reason for being here.  I know what it’s like to live a life feeling, “There has to be something more, this can’t be all there is!“  

Enter coaching!  It was through the forward action approach of Core Energy Coaching™ and NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) that I was finally able to realize true self-discovery and peace.  Before this dynamic approach, I had believed that because I understood my past and what I had experienced that I also understood who I was.  But, I didn’t.  My view of myself was very limited, and consequently, so were my coping skills and self-beliefs.  My ability to make the right choices for myself was greatly impacted because I was in the dark about my true self.  Through the partnership of coaching, I learned what was truly blocking me, what rules I was following that didn't serve me, and how I could live life as I was meant to live it, on my own terms, based on what lights me up! I was able to find my own answers and fill the emptiness I felt inside with self-love and appreciation. 

my story

For 20+ years, I have been committed to helping people gain enlightenment about themselves, those incredible "aha" moments that lead to self-empowerment!  "Discover You Coaching" means just that.  It's a beautiful life when we truly discover who we really are and where we're going! 

My Mission


The best way to fill our emptiness is to know ourselves and our values, and love ourselves unconditionally.

What exactly is coaching?


When people hear the word "coach" oftentimes it's in the arena of sports.  Coaches help athletes optimize their performance.  Having a coach for the game of life works the same way - to help you achieve your personal best in life, relationships, and career.  Success comes from the thought-provoking and creative partnership between a coach and a client that inspires you to identify and reach your personal and professional potential.  It is through this partnership that you will discover the answers within yourself about what’s been holding you back, as well as what inspires you, so you can move forward with passion and confidence that the path you take is truly your own.   


How can coaching help you?

Are you like so many of my clients who have expressed many of the same feelings, questions and hollow feelings in their gut that “something’s missing” in their lives?  


"How can I make better choices for myself and follow through?"

"Why can't I find healthy relationships?  Why do I seem to always settle for or attract the wrong man?"

"Why can't I stop negative self-talk and take better care of myself?"

"Why do I always put others first?"

"Why can't I move past my past?  Why does the trauma I went through as a child still bother me?"

"Why am I stuck in this job?" or "I'm really successful in my job, but it doesn't thrill me."

"What do I want out of life?" 


Have you ever wondered:  

  • Do I want to design my life or do I want to live a life of default? 

  • Do I want to know who I truly am?

  • Do I want to understand myself and my purpose so that I can find a career that I want? 

  • Do I want to settle for "ho hum" jobs that pay the bills but leave me feeling unfulfilled?   

  • Do I want to develop a love for myself so that I can find true love in all of my relationships?


Through solution focused coaching, my clients discover that they intuitively know the answers to these questions and what they want but lack the insight and awareness that working with a coach provides.  My clients quickly begin to develop their own self-awareness that leads to increased self-confidence, inner strength, and decisiveness.  It is from this place that they are able to truly know what it is they want, and just as importantly what they don't want and have the passion to reach their personal and professional best.    


If you're ready to learn about yourself so you can live your life as it was meant to be lived, let's do it!
