Life often takes us on unexpected journeys, and my path has been no exception. What started as a career in business coaching in 2004 eventually transformed into a deeply personal mission of healing. Today, I stand as a survivor who has conquered emotional, sexual, financial, physical, psychological, and narcissistic abuse. My journey has been long and challenging, but it has shaped me into the advocate and coach I am today.
From Business Coaching to Personal Development
My coaching journey began in 2004 as a business coach. I enjoyed helping individuals and organizations reach their goals and achieve success. However, life had other plans for me. In 2016, I found myself transitioning into the world of personal development coaching after realizing most of the entrepreneurs I was working with had been stuck in their own trauma and traits of self-doubt .
This transition wasn't just a career change; it was a calling. I realized that my own experiences with abuse and having to overcome issues with self-worth, self-respect and boundaries could be a powerful tool to help others navigate similar challenges. It was a turning point that would lead me down a path of profound personal growth and transformation.
A Survivor's Story
My personal journey has been marked by adversity and resilience. I've faced emotional, sexual, financial, physical, and psychological abuse, as well as the manipulative tactics of narcissistic individuals. These experiences tested my strength, but they also deepened my empathy and understanding of what survivors endure.
The road to healing has been long and challenging, but it has given me a unique perspective on the importance of self-care, and the power of resilience. I stand as living proof that healing and growth are possible, even in the face of unimaginable trauma.
My Role as a Coach
Today, I am not just a coach; I am a survivor who has been where you are. My role is to guide you toward making the very best decisions for your life, according to your goals. I provide a non-judgmental sounding board, a supportive cheerleader, and a kick-in-the-pants accountability partner.
It's important to note that I am not a lawyer, therapist, doctor, or psychologist. I offer recommendations and suggestions based on best practices and my 30+ years of advocating for victims and survivors. My experience and tools are here to help you find safety and healing sooner rather than later.
Life has a way of leading us down unexpected paths, and my journey from business consulting and coaching to personal development coaching is a testament to that. As a survivor, I've learned that our past does not define us; it shapes us into advocates, supporters, and guides for others on their own journeys to healing and empowerment.
If you're currently facing the darkness of abuse or trauma, know that there is hope, and you are not alone. I hope that my experiences and insights can serve as a beacon of light, guiding you toward a brighter, safer future. Together, we can embark on a transformative journey toward healing, growth, and reclaiming your life.
