What I Offer

I’ve distilled 30 years of personal and spiritual growth work and training into clear steps for my clients to follow so that they move from struggle and self-doubt to the self-trust and confidence to take bold, clear actions to create the life they want.

What you’ll get out of coaching with me:

  • Shift self-doubt to self-trust.
  • Solid connection to your body’s wisdom.
  • Where you used to tread water, you take action with confidence.
  • Your inner voices playing well together as a team that’s ON YOUR SIDE.
  • Stop overworking and live in the sweet spot between effort and allowing that I call buoyancy.

To create our solid coaching container:

  • I listen without judgment.
  • I ask insightful questions.
  • I allow you the space you need to connect the dots that will transform your life.
  • I challenge you when you’re holding back.

Who I am

I’m a woman who’s created a life that truly reflects who I am. I coach, write, scuba dive and do underwater photography, sing in the Agape International Choir in Los Angeles, live with the love of my life, Patrick, love our rescue pups, Phoenix and Mojo, and do a bunch of cool biohacking stuff like cryotherapy and lying in a hyperbaric chamber because I’m fascinated by human performance. I’m also courageous as hell, and have transformed my life multiple times, by desire, necessity, and design.

My prior background is in massage, acupuncture, and herbs. I have a Master’s degree in Chinese Medicine and left patient care after 13 years to pursue an MFA in Poetry at Sarah Lawrence College. I dedicated myself to writing for 10 years before the desire to work with people one-on-one again got too loud to ignore. I’m trained through two schools of life coaching: Falling Awake and OneTaste.

I grew up participating in three cultures, American, Venezuelan, and Swedish, speaking three languages and feeling like an outsider in all of them. I spent a lot of time observing people so that I could do the right thing and try to fit in. Eventually, trying to be the person others wanted me to be got too exhausting. I had to figure out who I really am.

I’m deeply inspired by the ocean and its creatures. After almost 20 years of diving and a decade of underwater photography, spending time in the depths of the ocean informs so much of how I see life that I named the way I coach the Get Buoyant Process!

I’ve always been a deep diver, reading Zen books in high school and spending my twenties immersed in intense spiritual practice as I worked with clients in my busy private practice. My love of poetry also comes out of my love of diving deep. I love the way poetry slips under the surface of life to distill all that beauty and pain into potent imagery and language.
