My deepest calling has been to help people live a life of inner and outer freedom because for most of mine, I felt stifled, heavy, and repressed. I’d been looking for courage and freedom and not just the kind we seek on the outside, but the kind we live and breathe inside ourselves.
For most of my life, until not that long ago, I was truly afraid to live. Afraid to be myself.
I felt utterly caged in the role of a powerless woman, playing and thinking small.
It all started with clutter and attachment.
I was overwhelmed, disorganized, and surrounded by stuff. I was stuck everywhere in my life and couldn’t let anything go within my space or in my heart. All my layers of clutter/stagnation stopped me from being myself and loving who I was.
My attachment to belongings, things, people, relationships, and emotional baggage, literally ruled my life. All of it kept me protected and comfortable but oh, so miserable.
I craved being empowered, courageous and visible; yet for so long, felt invisible. I was constantly afraid to take up space, and to step out of my comfort zone. I was afraid to shine and live out loud unapologetically.
Through my own journey of healing and reclaiming, I realized, clearing and creating space was more than in my physical space. I realized I was carting around baggage in my heart, mind and body that was deeper than I’d ever imagined.
Clutter is not limited only to your space. There’s the kind you can’t see. It holds you back from being yourself fully, from showing up and speaking out.
It takes peeling back these layers, to unearth and reclaim your real self.
When I was ready to change this paradigm of living, I began to clear what didn’t serve me, layer by layer, everywhere.
In my space, relationships, thinking, body, finances, etc., I started to unravel, unwind and unclutter the shit I no longer needed to carry. And letting go felt sooooo gooooood!
So good in fact that in 2006, I became a professional organizer and life coach.
I know first-hand how it feels to be overwhelmed by emotional baggage, disconnected from your body, and out of alignment with your life. It’s no wonder my chosen profession for the last 14 years has been to help people let go and create space.
Eventually, after my long and deep, inward journey…I found what I was looking for.
I found myself.
I found my truest, loveliest self and reclaimed her back into wholeness and then my authentic, highest self began to emerge.
I went from:
cluttered and disorganized to uncluttered and free.
fearful and quiet to using my voice.
being afraid to feel all the way to completely cracking open.
forcing things to happen to surrendering into letting things happen.
hesitant and feeling fearful to courageous and with gumption.
hiding my intuitive gifts to coming out of the psychic closet.
body hatred + shame to reclaiming and loving my body.
feeling unworthy to finding fierce self-love.
being sexually repressed to liberated and expressed.
from giving my power away to empowering myself.
In essence…I went from living in black & white to living in color.
This journey wasn’t easy. It took a ton of self-inquiry, healing and support from various mentors, teachers and loved ones.
And, it was worth it.
We have been made to fear our soul truth. Afraid to take up space. We have been afraid to uncage and unleash. And, it takes letting some things go to get there. It isn’t always pretty but it is authentic and it is real.
You can’t hear or follow your Soul’s whispers or anything else for that matter until you let go of the stories, masks, and ego perspectives that keep you spinning round and round. Until you embrace your true desires.
This journey invites you to let these things go so you can truly reclaim your beingness all the way and create space in all avenues of your precious life.
Before starting my company—formerly named A Life Uncluttered) in 2006—I spent 11 years working for small business owners/entrepreneurs, managing them and organizing them and it was the best training any professional organizer and life coach could ask for.
I also spent the last 10 years as part of a community of like-minded humans, focusing on personal development and listening both as a participant and teaching assistant that fosters deep listening, peer-support, and human development. Between this and my expertise in business, entrepreneurship and clutter clearing, I promise you…I’ve literally heard it all and seen it all.
WHY AM I HERE?
To help you remember who you were before you lost yourself.
To be an example of living courageously with abandon and embodying your Soul Truth…
I work with imperfect and spirited women who crave a life that is rooted in BEING inside and out. Women who want to return home to their essence.
The journey is about coming home to fierce self love. Through home, body, voice and power. They’re all waiting for your embrace..
Ready to dive deeper into your truest self?
Come in and know…no part of your life will go untouched…
My work and my offerings are my own unique modalities and a blend of all I‘ve learned from my years as a life student. It is informed by my own experience navigating my soul journey and what I learned was helpful for me. On this journey I received amazing support in the form of therapy, healing, mentorship and coaching from various teachers, mentors, healers and coaches. I can honestly say I would not be who I am today with their love, wisdom and support.
I honor my teachers: Joan Harwood, LMFT, Hope Nordmeyer LMFT, Linda Bedre & Michael Vaughn, Ev’Yan Whitney, Lola Archer Pickett, Nila Velchoff, Monica Mullen, Nancy Kern, Gaye Abbott, Leslie Smith and Kim Pence.
