2013 has certainly been an interesting ride for me so far. Coming into the beginning of the year I was riding a big high! My first book had just been published by Hay House, my business was flourishing, opportunities to empower youth and parents were abundantly flowing into my life, I had absolute clarity on my life purpose (or so I thought), and I was in the most heart opening, and love filled relationship I had ever been in. I felt like I had finally “made it” and was truly content in all areas of my life! And just as I started to get comfortable, everything began unravelling before my eyes.Read More...
I recently got a migraine. That, in and of itself, is not particularly big news. I've been getting migraines for the past 16+ years, so it's not too shocking to me when I get another one.
However, one big thing was different this time. I noticed something new.Read More...

I’ve been thinking about time a lot lately. Specifically:
Allow me to set the scene:
I’m talking to a client who has recently broken up with an amazing guy who worshiped the ground she floated over.
“Why did you walk away from him?”
“I don’t know, ” she said mystified and withdrawn.
“Could it be because you were afraid of having what you wanted?” I offered.
Lightbulb. Yes, that’s it.
We reach for self sabotage when we fear our own empowerment.
Change can = pain.
So why push forward any.way. you can?
Because it’s worth it.
Know with every fiber of your being that what you want the most: the relationship, the career, the body, the chance – all lie on the other side of your willingness to change.
Analyze your motivations; get curious.
Why are you afraid to have what you want most?
Why are you NOT leaning in?
Curiosity packs the power to move you forward.
Refuse and the long term pain of sabotage has the potential to dismantle you. To rob you of who you seek to be; of where you aspire to ascend to.
Shelve your fear, loosen your shackles and desire a life of satisfaction more than you begrudge change; more than the pain of discovery and the responsibility of awareness.
And then act.
Growing up I didn’t think much of myself. I grew up poor, and spent much of my childhood alone. My father wasn’t around and my mother worked full-time, so I had to look out for myself from a very young age. This created emotional baggage, which I carried for many years.Read More...
If you support marriage equality, you probably recognize that every human being should enjoy the same rights and privileges. Period. Have you ever thought about that in reference to your own internal community? Are there aspects of your personality that cause you pain, jealousy, guilt, sadness? Would you just rather ignore them, because they make you feel uncomfortable?Read More...
I have a ghost lurking in my closet. Honestly, I’ve got more than one. There’s a few hovering in the shed, a cluster under our guest bed and tubs full of the little buggers in the attic. Cleaning them out will be more than a weekend project; it feels closer to extermination. That’s why I’ve been avoiding it.Read More...
About two years ago a good friend of mine woke up with a very swollen belly, out of nowhere.
Later that night she was told she had stage 4 ovarian cancer.Read More...
