HEALING MIND, BODY & SOUL
I'm happy you are here. I see you, I hear you. I believe in you.
In this crazy, busy world, so many of us are in our heads so much of the time and we have lost touch with our bodies and have forgotten how to connect with our inner compass (our own knowingness, listening to "our gut", our intuition). Sometimes we repeat the same storylines over and over in our heads. Storylines from our childhood that aren't serving us anymore.
I want to help get you to a place where you feel empowered and in control of your life. A place where you realize that hope is within you and that you actually know the answers. A place where you come "back home" to you.
If you are seeking transformation in some area of your life, you are in the right place. I'd love to help you find your way to a brighter, happier and more fulfilled life.
I want to share my story with you.
As we all know, life has its' moments of joy as well as its' moments of pain and hardship. Losing my dad suddenly at the age of 25 shook my world and changed it forever. Losing my friend, a young mom, to cancer made me realize how precious and short life is. Living overseas and traveling to many different countries with my husband and two boys for a few years was one of the most amazing life experiences, but also some of the hardest times of my life. It led to my family unit falling apart which ultimately ended in divorce. Watching my children experience such terrible hurt during that time broke my heart. To go along with it, I developed health issues. I had become so disconnected from my "self". I had forgotten to breathe.
Fast forward to now, I am living the life of my dreams. I live with my blended family in Kelowna, BC on 13 acres. I struck jackpot and found the nicest guy on the planet who treats my boys and I like gold. I'm living a life where I have let go of the guilt and shame that haunted me for years. Through practice I’ve learned that what I focus on is what I will manifest. By consciously choosing new thoughts, I raise my vibration and, as a result, my world has become so much brighter.
Don't get me wrong, I still have the occasional day when I feel overwhelmed and I stay in my pjs for the day. A close family member struggles with mental health issues and it’s very challenging. I want to do everything I can to help them get onto a positive path to health and wellness, but I recognize that it’s their journey and not mine. I need to take a step back and let them know I’m always there to listen, offer support, provide guidance and unconditional love, but ultimately I don’t have control over the situation. I need to show up each day as my best self, aligned and balanced in all areas of wellness.
These days I choose to envision a positive outcome rather than worry about things that may never happen. One of my dear friends who just passed away taught me the power of positivity and the importance of appreciating the small things in life that we often take for granted. We are all living the human experience and no one has the perfect life. All of us experience challenges and triumphs; what is most important is how we choose to deal with these situations.
My career as an educator has fulfilled me in so many ways. I was a middle school teacher for 20 years before deciding, in 2012, to obtain my Masters in Counselling Psychology so that I could accomplish my life long dream of being a high school counsellor. Working with youth and young adults is a major passion of mine. I also enjoy supporting parents who need guidance in strengthening their relationship with their teens. It brings me great pride when I’m able to help women with transformations in all areas of life. Connecting with people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds brings me joy.
I can't wait to meet you.

Are you ready to SHINE? I'm here for you!
Hope is the closest to a living metaphor of her name that you’ll ever have the pleasure to meet! She has recently been a vital part of my teenage son’s journey back to wellness. She exudes hope and well being for the future at every meeting and is a positive and shining light from the minute you meet her. But she helps to turn that hope into a series of practical, liveable, useable steps that resonate and work for you, your family, your relationships, and your life. She’s empathetic, totally non judgmental and experienced professionally in so many of the curve balls life can throw at us. Engaging with Hope is a positive step in gaining clarity, perspective and a more balanced path forward.
