As someone who has lived through some of life’s most difficult traumas–including sexual assault + relational and betrayal trauma–I believe that we all have the power within to become our best self and live life boldly. 

My life began in a small, one stoplight town in the Midwest surrounded by corn-fields and creeks. Today I live in California by the ocean and mountains where I feel the most at peace.

How did I get to this place in my life?

I overcame sexual assault at age 17 which resulted in the subsequent birth of my beloved son, and 23 years later endured the resurgence of trauma when I  learned that my husband had betrayed me throughout our 17-year marriage and shared that he was gay.

The news slammed me to the floor and made me question everything. Could I survive the pain and find forgiveness? How would I like my future to look? And could I make a new life when I felt so broken?  

The pain was overwhelming, yet I lived daily by what my parents taught me when I was 17 years old: place one foot in front of the other and keep walking from a place of integrity. You will get through this. 

I put on my running shoes and ran for my life.

I climbed mountains and paddled the ocean to release my fear and anger. Nearly two years later, the healing work I did created a shift; I felt a sense of being grounded. I felt safety, clarity, and forgiveness. It was time to help others do the same. 

It was after healing from these traumas that I discovered her life purpose was in helping others walk through their pain to find healing on the other side. Now I coach individual men and women through their own life-shifting journeys of healing and transformation using the same tools I used to heal from my own experiences.  

My intention is to connect with you, the client, and guide you on your healing journey. Are you ready for a shift? Do you desire empowerment and change? Are you longing to feel inspired, find your purpose, and grow in a supportive and nurturing environment? 

You can take your own first steps to healing from your past (or present) by booking a discovery call with me to see what type of coaching is right for you.

Or get started on your own by reading my book, WALK THROUGH THIS: Harness the Healing Power of Nature and Travel the Road to Forgiveness, you will become the person you aspire to be. 

Please reach out. I created all of this for you.

I was constantly being questioned how a mom of three boys could reinvent her life at 40 years of age, guiding and coaching others in the Grand Canyon/Wilderness. At the same time, my femininity was being questioned as I was exiting a marriage where my husband is gay.

Though seen as strong, I wasn’t always seen as feminine … which stung.

At my Core, I am Pure Woman. I am also an Adventurer at Heart.

I decided that I wanted a symbol, something for me, which would show the world that a woman does not have to be put in a box. I wanted to show that we can do our nails and summit a peak on the exact same day. We can hike trails, climb boulders and still come home to put on a dress and heels. We can embrace, love and honor all sides of ourselves.

It came to me one day while running. “I will buy a pair of red stilettos and wear them on the peak of Mt. Baldy…for me.” I posted my picture on social media and the response was surreal. Through that one picture, a message was also posted to the Universe… that women CAN be Strong and Feminine.

My heels have seen Peaks throughout Yosemite, Mt. Wilson, Cucamonga Peak, Mt. Baldy, San Jacinto, San Bernardino Peak, San Gorgonio, the High Sierra Trail, Mt. Whitney … and many, many others.

Red represents courage, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. I will never stop embracing me…

Hopefully these red heels give you the courage to do the same.



Nature mirrors Life mirrors Art (Animation) .. every time I watch this, I’m in awe. Perhaps it’s because I’ve lived through a tornado. Many earthquakes. A monsoon. Blizzards. And unreal gorgeous days. I find the force of nature absolutely exhilarating. This ever-changing world of ours is a mirror for us all. 2:17 secs: watch to the end.

Every time I’m floating alone on my stand up paddle board, miles offshore on the Pacific Ocean, I know the risk of what is happening under me. Every time I’m in the mountains, I know the earth could shift. And, this is life. We shake. We explode. We shift internally ourselves. We transform + we let loose. We can’t always anticipate when any of this will happen. What we know, yet can be hard to accept, is that change is inevitable + we were never intended to stay the same.

In our life, we experience so much happiness! And, we experience difficulties + traumas. One cannot be held without the other. This is living. Absolutely no one in this world doesn’t experience some sort of pain. The pandemic has proven that. What’s a needed reminder is that we all experience pain differentLY, in different forms + in different ways. No two humans see, experience, or process anything alike.

From Complex-PTSD or any sort of mental, emotional, or physical health, it’s important to remember that while going through whatever we are experiencing, we are not alone. We are never alone. And what’s equally important is that we don’t stuff our thoughts, emotions, pain, or our truths down. Everything will manifest to the surface, in one form or another. We either take care of what is eating us from the inside, or what’s eating us from the inside will manifest in unhealthy ways, such as through addiction, disease, unhealthy relationships, etc. 

Nature “does it thing” and cleanses in the way intended. She releases her energy + clears what is needed in order to become her new natural state of beautiful. Fires are needed for new growth + to feed the earth. Tectonic plates shift, releasing energy to change the land. Tornadoes + monsoons shift energy in the air + skies. We need to shift energy to balance our natural state of being.

(Cont’d in comments ⬇️)
Many times our frustration in life stems from not having a plan. We want something to happen, but we don’t know how to get to what we want. We want to heal. We want to grow. We want to get through our divorce. Find that job. Move. Have better relationships .. ya da ya da. We see it happen for others, but not us. Judgment creeps in.

SAVE THIS POST, COMMENT + TAG OTHERS, because I’m sharing my plan that works: ⬇️

First, work on the internal you. The personal development + healing of self. Take time every day to look in the mirror at your internal self. Do you like the look of your heart + soul? Do you like how you treat others? Do you like how you treat yourself? Do you embrace your gifts + share them in service? Are you walking what you preach? Are you aligned in your values with self? Do you PRACTICE being a good human every day? (That last one is a biggee ..)

Second, work on the external. Where do you want to be in the future? Where do you see yourself? In a relationship? Out of one? New career? Happy? Moved? If you don’t have specific answers, that’s ok. Pull it back as far as you can + keep it simple. I manifest best when I have specifics, but many times I don’t have specifics, so I keep it simple + broad. Remember: you don’t have to know everything right now! Write down what you do know + keep it somewhere that you can see it daily.

Most important: find your tribe. Network out to people that will support, love, honor your intentions, believe in your healing, your growing, and who want to hold you accountable for your happiness. Ask questions of them! Ask for help! The energy of being in community is key to progress + moving forward. We shouldn’t have to do anything in life alone! There are people everywhere who want to serve + guide others. Find humans to welcome you in. And when they do, gratefully receive their hand.

Lastly .. there are three words to live by. TRUST. SURRENDER. OPEN. Trust the Universe and what is unfolding for you. Surrender to your belief in self + worthiness. Be open with your heart to receive all of life’s magic + miracles.

PLAY in your plan, and your plan will deliver. Big.

I believe in you / us .. always!

So ..

I shared this news with a few close friends yesterday, and one of them asked, "How does it feel?"

Well, it feels a tad surreal to know the show you once went to for guidance, you are now guiding people on. In truth (always), I am excited! Thrilled. Nervous. Like, I wanna throw-up-butterflies-in-my-tummy kinda feels! I want to cry. Scream! Shout "HOLY SH#T!" And I want to hold all versions of me--from age 17 to age 48--tenderly, moment-to-moment, in gratitude for facing those fears of speaking out. Of speaking loud + not whispering what I know will continue to help so many others. I always, always share every not-always-perfect word from my heart. From my soul. With intention to be of guidance for all of you, and those you know. 

It really is true, "Your truth will set you free." 

The segments highlight everything from my own story, to the founding principles I've used in my healing journey + now share on my healing retreats. If you are interested + ready to dive deeper yourself, now is a great time to buy your book, Walk Through This: Harness the Healing Power of Nature and Travel the Road to Forgiveness, in my handle, on Amazon, or at any bookstore. 

I believe in you / us .. always. And I always, always will.

There are times when the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all. Actions + presence over words. When silence becomes your source of greatest strength. 🔥

It's an art in knowing when to use which.

Drop a 🔥 if you’ve ever kept your silence + grown stronger because of it. Focus inward. Fan your own loving flame.


PS: Big news coming tomorrow!
