Your why is your Life Purpose. It is your motivation and the key to your true happiness and authentic sense of fulfillment. Knowing your Life Purpose will enable you to finally overcome the hurdles that have held you back in the past, and it will give you the stamina to push through the how’s of true and lasting achievement.
So stop sitting on the sidelines watching life pass you by. It's your time to get in the game and find what your life purpose is. You owe it to yourself to make it important, to put forth the effort, to venture outside of your comfort zone, to reflect, to discover, and to live guided by your Life Purpose.

Some Transformtions From Coaching Clients

I’m passionate about working with people in a way that facilitates their inward and outward growth, while enhancing and rewarding them in their true untapped potential, hidden gifts, career, relationships, the pursuit of happiness and overall purpose in life. I believe everyone has a right to live with joy and we do this through finding our purpose and then creating a life around that. I discovered this hard way.
Having achieved a high level of success by the end of my twenties with prestigious degrees, a defined and successful career, and the freedom to create what I believed to be true happiness, my life was set; or at least I thought so. Despite my accomplishments in career and financial freedom, I felt a severe disconnect deep inside of me. This disconnection just could not be filled with any of my attainments. So many of us are raised to believe if we work hard and manage to make the outsides of our life as perfect and successful as possible, then happiness will be the result. However, that joy is temporal and not a long-term solution.
The search and struggle lead me to a discovery. Vodka. My life took a drastic turn from thereon forth, where untreated alcoholism took over every aspect of my very existence. I was in the last year of my Ph.D program, completing my doctorate in clinical psychology and my days took on a façade I desperately tried to continue, as my world began to crumble all around me. Looking back, it is clear the very shattering of my world was the necessary step in my personal evolution. I gradually began to lose everything that meant something to me in life.
Just when I had thought I had no way out and my spirit was slowly succumbing to its demise, two comprehensive rehab visits brought me hope. I realized that the answers lay not outside of me, but they resided inside all along. I realized that I actually desperately wanted to live but I could not go back to the place I had been. I had to begin to live in a different way and I was determined to discover how this could be. It was either destruction or change. There was no other choice.
Eventually, I embarked on my journey in recovery and started witnessing the changes before me. The journey was now that of self-discovery and inner manifestation, heightened consciousness, self-empowerment and realignment of vision and purpose. Giving up alcohol in search for devising my own path to inner tranquillity, I searched for the fertile ‘space’ within that enabled me to create and prosper.
I found it and have built magnificent monuments of ‘the-self’ on it – ever since! If I could find this space, well, then so can anyone else that was willing to do the work. This is my WHY and my Life Purpose. I want to help others create an extraordinary life.
