Blossom, Bloom & Grow





“If it ain’t dead, don’t bury it,” an old witticism that can sometimes be applied to our lives. Even though your dreams may have faltered, or they may have been sidetracked, now is the perfect time to re-examine them in the context of where you are currently!

There’s an innate power locked up in every individual waiting to be harnessed; it’s time to look within you and activate that power in your life, for your worth and your purpose. You start with one step, move to the next, and gradually you breathe and realize that buried beneath all those years of taking a backseat is you, whole and alive. It’s time to blossom, bloom, and grow, and I can help you to do just that!

Using scientifically tested resources such as self-compassion exercises along with Strengths-based tools driven by Positive Psychology to empower you, we resurrect your dreams to embrace your second or third act confidently. 

Many times, accepting that ‘you deserve it’ starts with forgiving yourself because, beneath your buried dreams, there may be shame, fear, and guilt. But if you are ready to put in the work, you can rise from the ashes like a Phoenix and soar.
