When I was in my twenties, I lived my life by everyone else’s rules. I was raised to please others and put my needs last.
I said yes when I meant no. I became depleted and resentful and drank my feelings away. This worked - until it didn't.
I reached rock bottom, spent time in AA and therapy, and began to learn the importance of self care, authentic living, and emotional healing.
In my life and in my work, I've seen how lives can be transformed when healthy coping strategies are implemented.
After getting sober and returning to graduate school, I became a social worker and substance abuse counselor.
I later went on to publish my first book, and seeing the success it had in helping people, I started my own business, teaching people the things I wish I had known in my twenties, thirties and beyond.
Speaking to groups and empowering individuals to live their best life is my passion. I love helping others find their voice, gain authenticity, establish healthy boundaries, and learn to live their best life.
