Creative Coach with a Holistic Approach

Welcome to Grow to Be You, creative thinking for the body, mind & spirit. It has been a joyful journey creating this program. I love seeing the transformations in all of my clients and students. You inspire me to continue to create ways to bring balance and meaning to your daily lives.

Bringing mindfulness to your life will bring you joy & contentment, health & relaxation.

The first time I meditated I was 14 years old. I was walking in the woods, singing to myself. This is also how I started songwriting - inspired by nature. I sat by a tree, closed my eyes, and observed. I listened to the birds singing and the wind blowing through the air. I felt the earth beneath me and the firmness of the tree trunk. I smelled the fresh scent of leaves and grass. I could see shadows with my eyes closed. I felt peace within. When I opened my eyes, I saw the world in a different light. Everything seemed more defined and clear. People seemed nicer. My body felt lighter. I was happy!

I have explored many disciplines of meditation and, with the soul of an artist, most closely resonate with guided meditations and creative visualization. Using the mind’s eye, we can create anything. We can resolve current and past conflicts. And pave the way for new and brighter circumstances. 

Our imagination is an awesome tool! The power of thought is not to be underestimated. You do create your reality. 

In our meditations, we do just that. Resolve current and past roadblocks, clearing the way for personal transformation. Are you ready to live the life you were meant to live? Let me guide you on your path ~
