After a year of rehabilitation, I set out on a new path, a journey of self-discovery that led me to healthier, conscious living. I took up distance running as a way to connect to myself and my surroundings through movement. I connected and integrated with specialists in holistic therapy and became immersed with  the CHEK Institute, where I became certified as a holistic lifestyle coach in 2012. This new path resonated with me. After enduring my own ordeals, I wanted to help others feel their best and overcome blocks and obstacles that often keep us from reaching optimal living.

It’s easy and accessible and marries my love of conscious, mindful living with a fun, fashionable point of view taken from years of working in New York’s fashion industry. I am sharing my life experiences with you so I can give you the tools to fly, to reach new heights along with me..

About me

As a young girl, I grew up with the imagination of an alchemist. I was a bright-eyed optimist who believed that anything was possible. I was a natural-born seeker of knowledge, an explorer who sought answers and solutions to the natural questions of life.

In my 20’s, my naturally exuberant nature was challenged for the first time as I faced a stream of adversities, both physical and emotional in nature. I lost my brother and later endured what was perhaps the most traumatic event of my life. At the age of 29, I suffered a stroke. It was a complete overhaul of life as I knew it. It made me reevaluate everything in its entirety. It was a totally transformative experience.

As a holistic coach, I work one-on-one with all kinds of people, helping them make positive shifts in their life by setting core values. We deprogram, we set boundaries and intentions and we reach a sense of purpose with which we can fulfill our dreams. I have realized my greatest joy, along with raising two beautiful daughters, has come from seeing people make these positive shifts in their life. It’s so gratifying to be able to help and share resources from my own experiences. And now I want to do the same with you through my site, The Joyful Approach.
