Mental Health Advocate, Blogger, Personal Transformation Life Coach
I am a mental health advocate, writer, and Personal Transformation Life Coach. I help people in the lowest times of their life, find a path forward to truly loving and believing in themselves; to go from simply existing, to living a thriving life full of meaning.
On the Winter Of My Discontent Blog, I write about my own struggles with ADHD and mental illness. Through TWOMD Coaching, I am able to reach more people one on one to help them build the foundations for lasting self-esteem, confidence, and find meaning in their everyday lives.
In 2020, I started The Winter Of My Discontent as a way to tell my story and to spread awareness about ADHD and mental illness. What I’ve built in that time is a heart-felt community of people who care deeply about my plight.
When assessing the ways in which I could grow and help even more people, I became aware of coaching. I immediately felt called to it and set out to educate myself. When I set my mind to something…
I am now a Master Certified Life Coach, specializing in self-esteem and self-confidence; inner happiness; goal success; and life purpose. I am also certified by The National Council for Mental Wellbeing in Mental Health First Aid.
I am continuously finding new ways to learn and grow. I study new techniques regularly and have a vast array of tools at my disposal.
I’m now on a new path with coaching and public speaking in my sights. To help people learn to love themselves and grow through the muck and the mess into the person they were always meant to be.
I’ve set out to change the face of life coaching, as a whole. I’m dispatching the toxic positivity, tough love, and ableism and I’m taking a softer, more empathetic, and simpler approach.
I bring to the table my real life experience of my mental health struggles, as well as my life experience and all the complication that come along with that.
In 2014, my life blew up in my face. In one day, everything as I knew it changed. My marriage, my friendships, even my familial ties were altered forever. I found myself alone for the first time in my life.
I was heartbroken and spirit-broken. My already low self-esteem plummeted to rock bottom. I had no hope for myself; no dreams or hope for the future. I was swallowed up in mental illnesses that I didn’t even know that I had.
I sought help, if only for my daughter’s sake, and started to feel something else…anger. Anger, not at myself, but for myself. It was the first sign that maybe I thought I was worth it after all.
What followed was a 7 year climb from the very bottom. I haven’t reached the top yet, but I’m back on even ground and I come bearing lessons, so many lessons learned the hard way.
It has been my mission since to make sure that no one has to feel the way that I felt in those years. I am now in a unique position to help people just like me to love themselves and unlocked their full potential.
Knowing, understanding, and loving myself and having a true purpose in life has made all of the difference in my healing journey and I believe it will make the difference in yours too.
