I believe that our work should be an extension of our values, purpose, and strengths. And it should nourish the bigger picture of the life you want to live!
But achieving that balance is HARD! With the fast pace of life, economic pressures, juggling family commitments, and being constantly and instantly contactable through all kinds of media...it's no wonder so many people suffer from stress and burn out.
I'm committed to helping my clients thrive not only professionally but in all aspects of their lives. Because without our health, and quality relationships, kicking butt at work can only get us so far! In my own personal journey I've struggled with workaholism, and couldn't use a computer for a couple of years due to almost permanent nerve damage in my arms from stress and overwork. Then I became a working mother and realized I couldn't afford to keep pushing my body to perform with the sheer force of my will! Things were starting to break down...
Since then I've been on a quest to make sure I - and my clients - prioritize self care, healthy boundaries and our own ingredients for a life well lived. I believe that if we are all doing this, the positive benefits will ripple out to our workplaces, our families, our communities, and the planet.
But it's super hard to do it alone. I've collected a bunch of tools, tips and knowledge to help you thrive in all aspects of your life. Contact me for a free consultation to see what's possible!

I help you get clear on your self care/balance goals, and create an inspiring, fully supported program to help you thrive both professionally and personally. I support you to:
Identify the ingredients to you having a thriving life (including your work)
Find out what's been sucking your energy and vitality (often these are like apps running in the background of your phone - using up battery and slowing everything down - without you even knowing...)
Create and implement an inspiring, doable plan
Set healthy clear boundaries
Increase work productivity and improve time management
Identify your life priorities - and learn to let go of what doesn't really serve you
Love your work and your life!
