You’re here today because your life has reached a turning point
and you’re ready to stop settling and LIVE your true potential.

Maybe you’re tired of doing what you think you “need” to do in order to survive another day.

Maybe you’re done with having to be what you thought you were “meant” to be and are hungry to get in touch with yourself in a new way.

I get it and have been there, too.

It kind of sucks to be in this place and feeling stuck, but I can tell you right now you are in the perfect place: at the edge. Join me shoulder to shoulder, because this is where you learn to lead, love, and live your life deliberately.

 

I grew up in the 1970’s — adopted into a Jewish family comprised of a lawyer who saw me like an Italian suit in his closet, a fragile mother who never spoke up and used alcohol to medicate her pain, and a physically and verbally abusive brother.

Divorce yanked the silver spoon out of my mouth, tossing me into the not-so-loving arms of an abusive step-father and a drug dealing step-brother, surrounded by criminals who were in and out of prison.

Suffice it to say: my home was not safe.

I grew up in the belly of the beast — I was offered my first hit of marijuana at age five. Going to school with a busted lip? Just another Monday.

Instead of play-dates with schoolmates, I helped my brother burglarize a Sizzlers and stole food to survive. It was a training ground for my soul, but it also took a toll on my body that would show up later as a course-changer.

I learned to push hard to get what I wanted.

To survive, I became a tough girl and MADE life give me what I wanted. And I wanted it all. I thought that a life of material luxury would prove my worth and dissolve my pain.

On my way to the top of the fashion industry, I hustled my way into into a plum job at Prada. I thought I had made it. I had all the trappings of “fashionable” success. I looked fabulous and had the perfect British boyfriend and lived in the West Village. But I was miserable and lost.

I’d built a glimmering mansion on top of a swamp, and it was sinking – fast.

At age 24, my body went numb.

One cold, wintery day in NYC, I woke up and my feet and my hands were tingling. My immune system was shot, and according to my diagnosis, I was bound for paralysis, wheelchairs, incontinence, monthly injections that triggered violent flus.

That was definitely NOT in my plan.

I felt like an animal, caged in my own body. I felt like I had failed, like I was a burden, a broken pile of rubble — unworthy of anything. I hated life, and I hated God.

I could have killed myself. Just disappeared.

There were many times I was tempted. But instead, I did something radical: I began to forgive myself. And everyone else. I began to let go of resistance and anger and started to release what was underneath all my layers of defense.

It didn’t happen overnight and it certainly wasn’t simple. Where my tools had failed, I had to find new mentors, coaches and new ways to transform. Being a victim wasn’t going to work anymore.

When you transform agony into acceptance + suffering into skill, a magical corridor extends before you, unfolding toward the life you’ve longed for.

And you walk down it. One day at a time. One breath at a time.

I tapped into my intuition, my truth and quickly recreated my life–from Prada to Yoga to Coaching to Training and Mentoring Coaches–into what my soul was deeply calling for.

Today I’ve been coaching for almost 10 years and feel so blessed to use all of my gifts, talents and life experience to live my life as a work of art.

I live in my dream home in Los Angeles with my husband Asaf, my son Odin (I birthed him when I was 42) and our little Boston Terrier Mala. I love to hike, practice yoga, find new places to eat (I’m a bit of a foodie), geek out on business, color with my son, travel, frequent art museums, and ultimately be a student of life.

After over 20+ years of study, helping others, and walking the talk, I’ve activated my power and sharpened my skills to find that it’s safe to stop when what you’re doing is not in alignment with your soul anymore.

As a coach, I’ve helped thousands of women to align their actions with their values, and when I turned 45, I realized I was out of alignment – which brings me to where I’m at today.

I decided after giving to everyone else it was time to give to myself, my marriage, and my son. It is time for my next evolution. It’s time to no longer define myself by my work and allow for a new exploration to see what is next.

The what’s next is being in this space.

If you’re seeking validation, information, and looking outside of yourself, I get it. I know what that’s like and also know this might be what’s in your way.

“The process is way more interesting than the destination – and the destination tends to change.”

If you’d like to travel with me, shoulder to shoulder, through my creative exploration, then take my hand and join me.
