You are likely in one of
two places in your life...

oQ2BZ5Rs
  1. Complacency. Your life is okay. Not great. Not bad. You go through the motions day in and day out. There is no genuine excitement or fulfillment in the things you do but you trudge on because you aren’t unhappy, per se.
  2. Rock bottom. Either you have struggled a great deal of your life with mental health issues or you ignored the complacency for too long and now you are downright miserable. Perhaps even depressed

How do I know this?

First of all, because it is rare to find people in today’s world that can say they are genuinely happy and fulfilled. Our society encourages high-stress lifestyles and mindless habits. Health, both physical and mental, are seen as afterthoughts, something that we can focus on once we accomplish everything else in our day (including thirty minutes of scrolling through social media.) How often do we complete our task list with enough satisfaction that we can “fit in” our health? Close to never. And why do we see physical and mental health as separate, as if our brain isn’t a physical part of our body?!

 

Secondly because I have been in both of these places, though I spent more time in the second one. I had my first nervous breakdown before I even got to high school and have a handful of suicide attempts under my belt. I went through a decade and a half of self-harm and years of on and off cocaine addiction.

I tried, really I did, to “get better.” Over and over. Somehow, I kept falling back into the same patterns. 

Sound familiar?

Have you:

  • Seen a therapist or life coach (or, if you are like me, a dozen)? If not, do you
    feel like you should and you’ve just avoided it.
  • Read a bunch of self-help blogs, books or subscribed to a bazillion motivational
    pages on social media?
  • Tried taking a variety of prescription medications only to find that they either made
    no improvement or made things worse?
  • Tried the “eating healthy thing” and didn’t see a difference?
  • Tried the “workout thing” and also didn’t see a difference?
  • Looked at someone else and decided that they must be faking their happiness 
    because nobody can actually be happy?
  • Thought that there must not be a point or accepted that this is just as good as it gets?

Don’t let anyone tell you that you are broken and never tell yourself
that something is impossible!
                                                                            -Amanda Webster

You have taken steps before, I know you have. I did too. A million of them. Yet all of the pain that I hadn’t found a way to manage and the discontentment with life in general finally collided in a giant convoluted train wreck in my head and I almost jumped from the ledge of a Canadian hotel room.

 

The only reason I came down was because of a well-timed song. That song was a wake-up call. I had some habits to break. Only I had no idea where to start.

 

To say that the next few months were a struggle would be an understatement. I had to figure out what I was doing wrong while giving myself credit for what I was doing right (yes, you are already doing positive things even if you don’t realize it!) I had to completely rebuild my life from the ground up. 

Do you want to know the secret that I learned?

It isn’t about going to a Yoga class and holding Downward Dog until your arms fall off. It isn’t about reading self-help books until your eyes bleed. It isn’t about playing guinea pig to a system that is structured to profit off of your struggles. It’s about balance. It’s about unlearning everything you thought you knew about life and even about yourself and being willing to start over.

 

Believe me, I never thought I could be any happier than the broken-down girl that was standing on that ledge. That’s why I was there. Even the professionals told me I would always have a Serious Mental Illness (SMI) and that it was impossible to overcome.

Guess what? I was decertified as having a SMI.

I now live a life so full of giddy joy that I sometimes feel like I must be in another dimension or maybe in someone else’s dream.

Here’s What You’ll Get:

  • Find out what the Happiness Spectrum is, where you are on yours and how to move higher.
  • Identify the areas in your life where you are already kicking butt (yes, you have them too!) and assess how to extend that into areas of struggle.
  • Learn about the nutrients that are essential to your mental and physical health and the best nutrition regime to make sure you are getting plenty of them. 
  • Pinpoint habits that might be getting you stuck in the Habit Cycle and figure out how to break them.
  • Analyze any tapes that have become ingrained as Limiting Thoughts that hold you back and learn how to rewrite them. 

 

I proved the world wrong.

I proved myself wrong.

Are you ready to do the same?

One-on One Coaching Call

No matter where you are, I can help you find a more fulfilling path.
