There was a period in my life where I was not feeling satisfied or fulfilled. I struggled to understand and break free from what I was feeling, but couldn’t quite get there. After some deep soul searching, I realized that a good part of my struggles was because I was living my life for others and not for myself. I was also living the story that was told to me and beliefs that were instilled in me. I was living life through the limiting beliefs I was taught to have, what I was shown how to be, act and do for my career. In turn I was living my life confused because I was feeling conflicted, which left me doubting my wants and desires. It got to the point where I had had enough. I was beginning to see that those beliefs were no longer a good fit for me.
I began working with a life coach to help me through this shift in thinking and grab hold of what it was I was seeking. Through my process, I began believing that it is safe to have my wants and desires. It is safe to be “different” from those around me, to follow my goals and be myself. I was finally able to align with who I truly am with my desires and my dreams and not feel embarrassed or ashamed or that I wasn’t good enough and didn’t deserve more than what I had. I realized finally, that I had a future vision of myself and I held onto it. My future self was strong confident, determined, motivated and happy in her own skin. I love all of myself and I'm not standing on the sidelines, rather actively participating in life and fulfilled. My coach helped me became a stronger individual by providing me with the tools necessary to become my authentic self and live a life that I’ve been desiring.
I still use these tools to this day. Just because I had significant breakthroughs doesn’t mean that my self-doubts and feelings of uncertainty went banished forever. They still lurk and try to sabotage my dreams and desires but I am now equipped not to take them on and realign myself as often as I need. I no longer let them take control of my mind. My life and my business has since grown and expanded because I gained the tools and techniques to get me here.
This became the birth of my passion and my desire to become a life coach and help other women have breakthroughs. Everyone deserves to live a fulfilling life. Not sit on the sidelines wishing, wanting, and hoping that “someday” things will get better for them. Becoming a life coach has given me the joy of being a messenger that life does not have to remain the same, as well as a cheerleader. If you have the drive, the commitment and the desire you will have the fulfilling life, relationships and career you desire and deserve.
I have been in practice for over 20 years. Over these years, I observed that more and more of my work with my clients was shifting toward life coaching. I realized that once my clients gained insight and built their foundation of where their blocks stem from, our work together shifted into creating a collaborative action plan and coaching them through the action steps toward lasting change. I developed a signature program where I create a personalized road map, including some of the coaching tools and strategies that worked for me, that guides my clients toward personal fulfillment.
