Hi Blush girls! I would love to be your millennial life coach! Even if you’re not a Harry Potter fan and didn’t pick up on the Spell (Riddikulus—Boggarts be gone) we can still get along! Here is a little more about me:
I grew up in a very tight knit supportive family with high expectations. My parents were anybody’s ideal role models, and they instilled morals, religion, and ambition into our household. I attended a very small private school in California from kindergarten through my senior year, and I was involved in EVERYTHING. I was the class president for six years (seriously, for six…who does that?), played sports, sang in the choir, and was voted most school spirited. Yep, I was your classic overachiever.
This all changed once I attended college. During my sophomore year at Pepperdine University, I traveled abroad to Germany and grew into myself. I was away from my family, my friends, and my life. I had to figure out what I wanted and what I valued all on my own. There was no one to please. I created my own sense of self, and returned to the states with a different perspective on relationships, success, culture, and happiness. I still loved all of my friends and family, but I no longer felt this intense need to please them.
I followed that inspiration and received my MS in counseling, and have worked with clients ranging from small children to suffering addicts. Naturally, I love working with girls, because I feel that we are the most susceptible to the people-pleasing plague. I believe we all have the capacity for growth by improved self-awareness, relational insight, and goal setting. My ultimate goal is to help girls find the insight they need in order to lead a more fulfilling life. I am still reaching this goal today, and it is a never-ending journey. However, all one needs is a jumpstart, or as I call it, Germany! I would love to be that person for you.
