A story of transformation
As an adolescent, I learned to cope with my insecurities and hide from my feelings by using buffers. Overeating, crash dieting, over-exercising, shopping, and constant change were my distractions of choice.
I developed a strong inner critic (I call her the inner mean girl) and I did many things to appease her, forsaking what my soul truly desired and operating out of a place of fear and lack.
In my 20s I left a prospering career to pursue a relationship that was anything but healthy and it ended in divorce. I landed on my feet again many times over and continued to live a life many would consider successful but I wasn't fulfilled. I was constantly worried that I was missing out and that I wasn't doing enough.
Once I began my journey of personal growth and healing, I discovered that the source of much of my suffering was my own thinking. In fact, I nearly lost my marriage and my family due to how I was thinking and who I was being at one point. My marriage to Ryan was in shambles and my lack of self-love and unwillingness to let go of past hurts and hardships left me wondering if I'd ever be truly happy with myself or anyone else.
Fortunately, my story of struggle had a happy ending but that's not always the case. However, I believe it can be. That's why I'm so passionate about what I do.
Today I have the honor of helping my clients learn to look inward, to trust their inner wisdom, love themselves unconditionally, and let go of thoughts & beliefs that are no longer serving them while creating intentional routines and practices specifically designed to provide opportunities for transformation along all five mountains of personal mastery:
Kokoro (Heart/ Mind)
I believe a big part of my success as a coach is due to the fact that I've been there too. I can relate to what my clients are going through and help them to see different perspectives. Sometimes it's hard to see the whole picture when we are living it. This is why having the right coach can be so life-changing.
No matter what you've been through or are going through now, I want you to know there's so much more for you. You are always just one decision away from a totally different experience of life.
Disclaimer: Doing this work is not going to be all rainbows and butterflies but it will be 100 percent worth it.
I've got you, let's do this together!

why we feel stuck
The mind is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.
Naturally many of us find ourselves unconsciously operating from a place of judgment, comparison, fear, and lack. We are either stuck in the past or worried about the future and even though we know we should feel grateful, it can feel like what we have is never enough or worse WE are never enough.
It can look as if happiness is something that lies outside of us. We can unconsciously believe that happiness is something we can buy at Target or something that someone else's approval can provide us.
We believe that our outside circumstances need to change right now...
We need to lose weight
Complete everything on our to-do list
Our home needs to look perfect
Our kids need to be well mannered and not-so demanding
Our partner needs to... (you fill in the blank)
Our business or job needs to take less time out of our day...
All of this and then we can finally be happy!
Sounds exhausting, right?
If you're like I was, some days you're living this thought pattern constantly. Regaining control over your thoughts and worries can seem impossible at times and no wonder with this checklist playing on repeat! There's nothing wrong with you and you are not broken. It's just time to stop doing what's no longer working for you and apply some new tools to help you get present, clear, and focused so you can live life to the fullest!
Here's the good news
Our mind doesn't have to be our master.
I believe that the answer to finding lasting fulfillment is already within each of us. My job as a coach is to provide you with the tools, accountability, and guidance to help get you there.
This is not just about having a good attitude or positive self-talk. This is much more complex and powerful and it will change you at the core.

Working with Heidi was one of the best investments I’ve ever made for myself. She has a way of bringing out the truth without you feeling judged. Her passion for personal growth is obvious when she is fully committed to you in each session and beyond. I highly recommend Heidi as a life coach to anyone wanting to grow personally, professionally, spiritually and improve their self-confidence.
Heidi is a compassionate and gracious coach. She has a way of walking with you in kindness and validation of what you're sharing/struggling with while also challenging you to grow and the best version of yourself. She gets to know you as a whole person and it becomes very apparent that she doesn't use a cookie-cutter approach but rather is very intentional about creating customized coaching and guidance. She helped bolster me and was so encouraging of me in my growth journey. One of my biggest take-aways from my 3 months of coaching with Heidi was to have more compassion for myself on the journey that I'm on. I am almost 40 years old and this was my first time ever being officially coached in my life. I am so thankful I went for and invested in myself in this way. I am worth it, you are worth it, if you're thinking of going for it, DO IT! You won't regret it for a single moment.
Heidi is such a genuine, intuitive soul. My 8 coaching sessions with her were really eye-opening and helped me uncover some unconscious beliefs I still had. I love how encouraging she was to inspire me to get on a morning routine, to be intentional with my time and decisions, but to also have grace for myself when I fell off course. Heidi truly wants the best life for everyone and the love and passion she has in guiding her clients to be the best version of themselves is undeniable. I would highly recommend her to anyone to go to the next level in self-discovery, professional development and/or meaningful relationships.
Heidi is probably one of the most real and understanding women I’ve ever met! The wisdom and grace she imparted to me in our short 8 weeks will live with me a lifetime! She was real and willing to share her struggles and life experiences with me and the things that helped her to learn, grow and love others and herself thru them! If you are considering working with her please JUST DO IT and be blessed ♥️
