From Life Adrift to Life Coach
I understand your pain. I was there. I’ve lived in the darkness and depths of roaring pain. Years of struggles and suffering obscured my perspective and my path. After years of moving through life with a heavy soul, I realized how my vulnerabilities impacted my choices and in turn my choices impacted my everything. I then discovered the light of mindfulness, awareness, and wakefulness.
“Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate.”
My inspiration and drive toward the light came from persistence through the depths of pain and the understanding that joy is a choice. When we live mindfully, awake and aware, we are able to experience peace and joy in a new way. We cannot change what life hands us, but we absolutely can change our response to it.
I have healed so I can help others heal. It is my privilege, my honor, and my duty. In Hebrew, “tikkun olam” (tee-koon oh-lom) means “repair of the world,” and I believe that when we save one life, we begin to repair the world.
“A life full of experiences led to a life full of light.”
I was born and raised in Washington, DC, and am now based in Sarasota, FL. I was educated at Sidwell Friends School, Boston University, and Marymount University. I earned my degree in Developmental Psychology. I am a Certified Life Coach, specializing in mindfulness, mental health, and trauma.
I have found that living near the water has been soul-healing. I love walking on the beach, breathing in the glorious sunsets, and admiring the non-judgmentalness of the surf…the waves that engulf you regardless of who you are.
I love: family and dear friends that become family, dogs, crochet, dessert, the strength and breadth of love.
