I established Life Design Mastery to empower people just like you to find the champion within in order to create the extraordinary life you would love to live. I see what is really possible for people. It took me a long time to find this in myself and now that I have, it has become my life’s work, my mission and passion to bring this out in others.
I believe in people. I have always seen see the best in others… so I am able to easily see the amazing opportunities and possibilities for them often before they are able to. The problem was I had to also see this in myself and finding this was quite a painful journey. As painful as this journey was, today it is a tremendous gift, as it lead me to this place, this beautiful life affirming opportunity to be of service to others who are struggling as I once did. I finally found a solution out of the darkness and into a life that is beyond what I could have ever imagined. This is possible for you too. If I can do it, so can you.
I hold a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling but overcoming the prison of “I’m not good enough” is by far my greatest accomplishment. While I am proud to say that I graduated at the top of my class at Nova Southeastern University, what I learned in graduate school cannot compare to the education I received from Life’s School of Hard Knocks. I enrolled in a variety of challenging classes at this “institution” including Addiction, Codependency, Toxic Relationships, Perfectionism, Blaming, Control, and many more. I got straight A’s in all of them. LOL.
Would I want to revisit these “educational experiences”? Ah, no. But would I do so in order to get to where I am, and be who I am today? You betcha! You see, these challenges and adversities have made me who I am, and I would not trade this feeling for anything in the world.
To me, this is the whole point.
It is my greatest longing that you too, will walk this walk and come to know the unrelenting joy of genuine self love.
I have been working in the field of personal development (in one capacity or another) for over 19 years. Nothing excites me more than the process of learning, growing and transformation. I have always enjoyed the hard work involved because of who I felt I was becoming in the process. I can look back and see with perfect clarity, how this was my destiny, to use my pain in service to others.
Prior to becoming a therapist I worked in the corporate world and was eventually drawn to sales where I achieved a great deal of success. I attribute my success largely to my genuine love of people, my ability to think outside of the box and use unconventional methods and to inspire others to follow a big vision. I rebuked traditional selling methods and instead trusted my instincts and cared about helping people get what they want. I became the top sales person year after year, astonishing the management with my unconventional methods. I can see clearly now that my success always came down to caring about and helping people get what they want, which is what coaching is all about! When I was introduced to coaching I knew immediately that this was meant for me, as I had been utilizing coaching methods in everything I was doing.
My greatest joy is when I see my clients “get it” , where they finally summon up the courage to face their fears, to lean into the areas of their lives where they were once stuck, and then…..whoosh…everything changes! Being a part of this process is one of the greatest joys I know.
I have always been a seeker of truth and wisdom and if there was a workshop that could bring me closer to this, you could usually find me there. I have attended, listened to and read hundreds of books, audios, CDs, webinars, podcasts, etc on personal development, success principles, philosophy, spirituality, really anything to do with achieving personal excellence and living an extraordinary life. I continue to seek this for myself and in so doing I use these tools to empower others in any way I can. The common thread in all of this is that I love to help people recognize how amazing they really are, and to fully awaken to this truth and live the extraordinary life they deserve and were meant to live.
Give yourself the gift of finding out just how amazing you are and how miraculous your life can really be!
