"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!  Like an emotional archeologist, I help people dig deep inside themselves and their lives and discover their genuinely authentic selves.   "Discover You Coaching," means just that.  It's a beautiful life when we truly discover who we are and where we're going, and I'd love to help you get there, too!

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.  Every athlete has a coach, and the top athletes have their own personal coach dedicated to their success.  Having a coach for the game of life works the same way - to help you achieve your personal best in life and career.  Coaching is like having a personal trainer for your life.  It's 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 so you can move forward with passion and confidence that the path you take is truly your own.   


How can working with me help you?


As a Certified Professional and Trauma-Informed Coach recognized by the International Coaching Federation, as well as a Certified Neurolinguistic Programming Practitioner with advanced degrees in human behavior, I will guide you through to finding your answers.  Clients express so many of the same feelings and questions and the hollow feeling in their gut that “something’s missing” that I felt for decades:  "How do I make choices that are right for myself if I don’t know who I am?"   "How can I find relationships that are true to my heart" "How can I pursue a career that thrills me?" "What do I even want out of life?"  Through coaching, they soon discovered that they intuitively knew what they wanted but lacked the mirror a coach provides that helps them develop self-confidence and self-belief that they’ll ever achieve it.  This self-awareness leads to self-love and excitement for life!  Like them, you'll discover who you are at your core so you can passionately pursue your dreams.   


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 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?


If you are ready to learn to live your life as it was meant to be lived, let's do it!
