More About Me

My “dr” title comes from being a psychologist almost 20 years before transitioning to the rewarding work of life coaching.

I coach soul-centered women to get the mindset needed to claim their space in the world so they create a life they love. My transformational journey of surviving and thriving after bullying, depression, and alcoholism created my passion to inspire women to stop wasting time in self-doubt and fear and get into courageous action to achieve their soul’s desires. 

I live in gorgeous Montana with my hubby and 3 (and counting!) rescue pups. I lived in Los Angeles for many years, all over the Southwest, and several places in Montana before I finally found my forever spot.

Lovely, I’ve been where you are…

I achieved a lot in my career and innocently assumed the online entrepreneurial space would be like any other goal I’d tackled. Except, gulp, it wasn’t.

And the only monetary cost I thought I’d have was a website (oh you naïve girl!).

When I didn’t experience the quick success I’d anticipated, I fell into self-doubt.

Wth? I’d had the self-discipline, hard-work ethic, and planning/organizational skills to get my doctorate. I’d even earned a scholarship for the highest GPA in my doctoral program. I had 30 years of experience in the mental health field. I built 4 successful private practices. I had a certificate in life coaching and got Board Certified. So, becoming a prosperous online coach? Easy peasy, right?

Yeah, not so much. The results? Few and far between…Enter the self-doubt. And my husband returning from work to find me again in tears.

Wow ~ I couldn’t believe the mean things I was saying to myself (like “I don’t think I can do this,” “Everyone else knows what they’re doing,” and “This was such a stupid decision”).

I had the skills, the solid determination, the unwavering discipline…I had a handful of clients I was giving massive discounts to, but no sustainable results.



Was it possible I still had mindset work to do like I kept hearing was the magic key to life (and biz) success?

Up til then I was a self-described “self-help snob.” I’d done therapy (5x!), read a ton of self-help books, been in two 12-step groups…I didn’t need more work on myself, did I? Yep, I did.

I not only learned of the need to invest in myself, I realized I needed to get a bold mindset before I could have my envisioned success.

And that was the turning point for me.

But here’s the magical thing ~ this wasn’t some deep-seated, intense mindset work I had to do immerse myself in for several months.

I already had the willingness to look at myself and correct my limiting beliefs, and I had the laser-focused determination stop wasting any more time and make my biz a success.

So, the mindset results came rapidly.

Getting a courageous mindset was the missing link in me becoming successful in all areas of my life. And work specifically on my scarcity mindset (remember the “massive discounts” noted above?) and mindfulness took me to a whole new level.






This is what happens ~ We’re born with confidence. Then, for a variety of reasons, we stifle it.

Self-doubt, fear of rejection, and people pleasing becomes our new normal (even if we sometimes appear courageous).

We want to be true to ourselves, but we’re missing the essential mindset.


Assertiveness is a learned skill. The more you work on getting the necessary mindset, the more you’ll achieve it.

Your courageous mindset will become your new normal.








I coach soul-centered women on their mindset because self-doubt was my biggest struggle and becoming a courageous female biz owner has been one of my biggest achievements. (I even have a tattoo with the word “courageous” in French tattooed on my hip to remind me!)








You can overcome the blocks stopping you from creating the life you dream of.












I can help you become the courageous and healed woman you need to be to do all those tasks you need to do to create the life of freedom you dream of…

To say goodbye to playing small and start taking up the space in this world that you deserve…

To let go of what others think and plunge into a sassier, bolder you who realizes that personal growth is the key to her dreams coming true…

To detach from limiting beliefs and confidently embrace your role as an EMPOWERED woman for all of those whose lives you touch.

How you know if I can help you…

You’re a soul-centered high achiever, but beyond frustrated with the self-imposed blocks keeping you from building your dream life

You’re ready for authentic change and
stepping out of your timidness


        You’re ready to move beyond unfulfilling intimate relationships,         overgiving, people pleasing, not being true to yourself, and self-doubt

You’re ready to shed your limiting
  stories and become the 
courageous woman 
    you are deep down, so you can
live a life
of freedom

Your experiences and who you are is unique:

Your limiting beliefs are holding you back from creating the life you dream of ~ fulfilling relationships where you receive as much as you give, being true to yourself, standing up for yourself, self-care, and boldly claiming your space in the world.

When you get a courageous mindset, you’ll no longer wonder what your purpose is.

I’m the one to help you do that. Once you build new beliefs that no longer hold you back, you can do anything you dream of.

Let’s do this!
