It all started with a book idea. From the time I was in middle school, I was the go-to person for advice among my friends. One day, I joked with a friend that I should be paid for my advice – namely my relationship advice. “You should write a book!” my friend suggested. Six months later, Transmissions From Dating Land was published. Since then I has been advising and coaching women on improving their communication, relationships, and adding more joy to their lives.
Inspired to make the world better, I help women change how they speak to others – and themselves – to lead more productive, successful, happier lives.
Anyone can adopt mindfulness in their daily life and, in fact, it’s crucial to effective communication. I believe that by starting with a few simple practices throughout your day, you can learn to develop mindfulness like any other habit. Using techniques from neuroscience, psychology, and modern coaching practices, we come up with individualized mindfulness and communication plans that work for YOU.
Driven by a love of people, I empower women to take control of their lives.
Everyone has great potential to achieve the things they want in life. Everyone can choose to make a difference in their lives or in the lives of others. We can heal ourselves – even if we need the help of a medical or psychiatric professional – and we can make our lives better through mindfulness and meditation. It starts with the stories we tell ourselves and the stories we allow others to tell us.
My clients have gone on to repair their relationships, reduce their medications (under the care of a physician!), decrease their blood pressure and stress, write their first book, conquer their fear of public speaking, and start small businesses.
Connecting through shared experiences, meditation, and community.
We’ll look at different aspects of your life to see where you can use mindfulness first to prioritize your journey. We’ll find out where your stories and how you communicate with others might be standing in your way. And we’ll discover what really makes you happy in life, what your true desires are and how to live with more joy. Private and exclusive Facebook groups and other communities help you find and learn alongside others on their journey.
