Stressing out about weight or body image may have been the main topic of conversation with friends, – Do you remember the first time you felt aware of how your body looked? When it was no longer about playing and hugging and dancing (as a kid) and it became about something else…
As a young girl, I remember sitting on my bed and thinking that when I see the world through loving eyes the world must become a loving place for me.
I know that is true to this day.
Perhaps it might not have been one momentous occasion, but most of us can think back on times we looked in the mirror and had the desire to change what we saw.
At some point, we started to assign value to how we looked and to feel worthier of love and acceptance. If we could somehow fit the beauty norms of the time… Be thinner, Be prettier, Be stronger, Be…something else.
Girls as young as five years old are aware of their bodies now more than ever and even going on diets!
If I could have sent a message to my younger self , I would tell her :-
“The joy is in the journey of trying, failing, experiencing small wins, trying again, getting further along, learning new things.
Embracing all of your imperfections is part of that journey.
I believe our relationship to our bodies, and so our relationship to our lives, has to change.
…and that’s what we do together, because you deserve a better approach.
Coaching from the heart
Through my own life’s adversities I reached a time in my life when I realized that I have a story to tell, and I wanted to help others with issues that I have experienced and healed through.
I have experience with intense uncertainty in the face of a major natural disaster. My family and I are survivors of the 2004 Asian Tsunami. This experience left me with a very deep understanding of human vulnerability and led me on a path of devoting years to studying and completion of multiple courses & trainings.
This led me on my path of healing, career and turning my weaknesses into my greatest strengths
So I broke down and cut through those self-imposed limiting beliefs of what I can & cannot achieve. I became committed to doing the mental work, the emotional work, and the inner work. The practical and physical work then became much easier.
Founding my own business and brand has been, and continues to be an exciting, challenging, and emotional journey. I am so proud of turning some of my greatest weakness’s into my strengths, finding my voice, and pushing past that comfort zone.
My many years of experience have taught me so much. I am able to help clients bring to the outside the inner beauty they are finally discovering in themselves.
It’s a worthwhile journey, so pack your bags! The lessons are in it all. From living on three different continents, marriage, raising two sons, surviving a natural disaster, overcoming overwhelming anxiety, to overcoming dysfunctional relationship with food. It was all-important to get here today.
I used to feel not good enough, and now I have complete faith in my ability to achieve any goal and to make a difference.

Every struggle was my new teacher from which I learned this major lesson. Too many humans, like you and me, are taught to see our struggles with self-sabotaging behavior and unhealthy habits through the lens of shame, guilt, regret, and anger.
It’s time to stop the cycle…
