​Are you feeling stuck?

I know… life can really suck at times…

You try to be happy… to accept what you’re dealing with​… to just shut up and pretend to appreciate all the hardships because in the back of your mind you know “it could be worse…” 

Meanwhile you can’t shake the feeling that you are a square peg being forced into a round hole. You don’t fit. Everyone around you seems to be making your life feel more and more miserable, and you can’t seem to catch a break.

Sound familiar?​

​If this sounds too familiar to you… know it isn’t your fault that life sucks. God doesn’t hate you. This doesn’t have to be your destiny.

The problem: your stuck living a life that you don’t belong in.

The solution: lets spend some time figuring out what would provide you with the fulfillment, satisfaction, ​

This is why I started coaching and created this website… to show you that you can overcome the very thing holding you back… you can learn and live up to your potential… you can have more to your life than just muttering through feeling useless, under appreciated, overworked, and underpaid… you can take your life back!

I remember the days of working a job just for a paycheck… desperate to get out from under the thumb of poor management. 

I ended up losing that “steady paycheck” when I endured nearly a decade’s worth of failing health… I lost everything… my career… my ability to afford a home… way too many friends… everything…

When you lose everything, and are denied the very government assistance that is designed to help, life becomes pretty grim. There was no way out. There was nothing I could do. I had no control. 

Or so I thought…

You have more control than you think!​

​Yes, I know… you don’t see a way out… but sometimes just because we can’t see something, doesn’t mean it is there.

I mean… how often are you looking for something just to realize it has been right there in front of you the whole time?

There is always a way out. And that doesn’t mean suicide.

I distinctly remember the day I chose not to kill myself… after many previous failed attempts.​ Each time I’d try, I’d end up with severe weakness, total muscle failure, or in a seizure. Looking back now, I’m sure it was some sort of divine intervention, but back then it was devastating… what kind of life is it that you can’t even end your own misery? I was stuck with no way out.

I talked with my neurologist about trying the one thing we hadn’t tried that that point… using food as medicine. He told me the bloggers I cited were wrong and that pursuing natural options would kill me faster. The answer was right in front of me… food was my ticket out.​ It was either going to kill me faster or heal me… either way, my suffering would end… 

Backed by a highly trained doctor telling me a natural health lifestyle would kill me faster, we decided to run with it.​ Why? Because one way or another I was determined to end my suffering.

​That totally backfired on me. My body healed itself. My husband and I decided to keep pushing forward, with our next task to overcome my massive unepmployment gap, leading me down the road to entrepreneurship, and igniting a purpose found through coaching.

Regaining my health, having a family I was told would never happen, and overcoming suicide attempts turned into a passion I found in helping and inspiring other people.

I found a common theme among the initial group of people I helped:  your past doesn’t define your future.

I couldn’t accept everything that happened in my 20s as being “my story” or the end-all-be-all of my life… so I decided to acknowledge it my “back story” and use it to show other people dealing with neurological issues, autoimmune issues, and depression that the condition doesn’t define you and there is a way out… there is light at the end of the tunnel… you’re not just waiting to die after leading a miserable life.

It is time to disrupt the routine…

It is time to take your life back…

It is time to push yourself forward… embrace the suck, find something to be thankful for, and run with your talents…

You deserve a better life, whether you realize it or not. But only you can decide whether or not you’re going to seize the opportunity. ​
