You know you want more freedom and flexibility so that you can take time for yourself and your loved ones; but each time you try doing it, your inner critic comes knocking on your door saying you're not doing enough. I understand you.
Sometimes, you feel stuck, either in your job, business or relationship, and you need someone to listen to you in a non-judgemental way to help you see things from a different perspective.
There might be times that you get stressed out about working too much without seeing the results. It could be easier if you had someone by your side to guide you through a process that gets you started working smarter and have more time for yourself.
You could be looking for ways to up-level your life, your overall wellbeing, and to awaken your hidden potential.
Together we work on what you can do to change the dynamics in your life so that you are stronger, happier, healthier, supported and thrive in following your dreams.

Life hasn't always been like this. My earliest childhood memories are about always feeling like an outsider, getting to know new people and places, and finding a way to rebuild my life each time starting from scratch.
We moved to the United States with my family due to my father’s job when I was 5-years-old and I couldn’t speak a word of English for quite some time. I felt lonely, really lonely. If you’ve ever felt like no one understands you, I definitely know what that feels like.
Working a lot and trying to control every piece of my life resulted in killing migraines, gastritis, prediabetes, chronic fatigue, and never-ending stress. This went on for over two decades.
My whole life changed with each decision I made. I took small steps, and with each step I took, I believed more in myself.
I made changes in my environment to support my health and chose to surround myself with those who uplifted my spirit and challenged me to be my true self. To this day, I continue making further changes to support my health and wellbeing.
Seeing people happy gives me energy. I have an energetic, happy nature and it breaks my heart to see people suffering when a little shift can bring their immense potential. I want to facilitate that shift for you.
I know that life can get really difficult at times. I never gave up on myself and I won’t give up on you as long as you continue striving for a happier and healthier you.
