I absolutely love….
…dancing, singing, cooking, camping, lazy & sunny summer days, reading a good book, playing with words as I write down my thoughts, collecting and creating objects of beauty, laughing my ass off at whatever floats my boat that day, and having deep meaningful conversations while contemplating life.
…my awesomeness isn’t defined by what I look like or by what I accomplish. Your awesomeness isn’t either. Life gives us exactly what we need, when we need it, even if it feels really painful at the time. You’re here and reading this for a reason.
I’m committed to…
…healing my heart, living a full life, following my soul’s desire, and helping you do the same.
I’m so glad you’ve found The True You Project and I hope we can help you come home to You.
You can read more of my story here:
I grew up in suburban Staten Island in the 80’s and 90’s and did everything I was ‘supposed’ to do to skate through life and succeed.
Said ‘No’ to drugs, got the grades, went to church, landed a good job, and was on the path to the promised land of a house with a white picket fence, 2.4 kids, and a dog (chocolate lab if possible please).
For all intents and purposes I fit the definition of ‘successful.’
Only problem was, behind the scenes I was slaving away to keep my body fitting into a size 4 jeans, and my performance reviews at that coveted ‘Outstanding’ mark. Failure was not an option for me.
It happened anyway.
The striving and trying to maintain an above-par level of performance in life, left me controlling and abusing my body in an unsustainable way. For 5 years I hid an eating disorder behind the shiny looking-glass of student-athlete, Ivy League graduate, and Fortune 500 employee.
For another 5 years, I held on to the promise of climbing the corporate ladder even though my heart wasn’t really in it. Even after my bulimia gone, I was still dying inside.
For the last 4 years I’ve been trying on a new way to live. A way that leaves room for exploring and trying new things, even without the certainty that I’m gonna get it ‘right’.
It’s scary, and I often don’t get it right, but if my journey out of bulimia and transition to a more creative and entrepreneurial life has taught me anything, it’s this:
- Don’t try to live somebody else’s life. You’ll suck at it, and it will suck the life out of you trying.
- You are more valuable BEING you, than DOING and achieving all that you think you need to.
- You will fail, so you might as well enjoy the ride.
- Failure’s not the end of the road. It’s only just the beginning.
For sure, doing life everyone else’s way offers a degree of certainty, safety, and allows your ego to relax a little bit. After all, you’re doing OK just like the person next to you; maybe you’re even doing better.
But how long with that last for?
At some point, living someone else’s life reaches it’s shelf life. Sometimes that looks messy. But that’s OK. We’re here to help you navigate that mess, pick up the pieces, and come out the other side a more confident, empowered, and free-er version of you.
Here’s how we can work together.
I work with individuals who are stuck in a cycle where fear of failure and rejection, a voice that says you’ll never be good enough, and a desire for having all of your ducks in a row (aka perfection) are driving the bus of your life.
I help you step out of those negative cycles and learn the tools that will let you freely Create, Love, and Lead, the way you know deep down that you can.
I have worked with a range of clients, including:
- those feeling stuck in their career and looking for their purpose
- seasoned entrepreneurs desiring less chaos in their life
- women and teens so unhappy with their Self, they are compensating by controlling their body with food and exercise
- those conditioned by strong controlling messages from religion and relationships, that they no longer know who they are
The one thing they all have in common that they were subject to the shoulds, shame, and fear in their life that conditioned them to hide their truth and attempt to fit somebody else’s mold.
The result? Anxiety, depression, eating disorders, failed relationships, and more.
If you can relate, and want to experience the freedom that comes when you be your own person, and breathe the fresh air of living your own life, then you’re in the right place.
When we work together you will light a fire under the desires you have for your life, replace the old story of who you have to be with the truth of who you are, and allow for whatever you can imagine to become your reality.
I work with private clients on a long-term basis for 4-6 months so they can make sustained change in their life.
Before committing to a coaching program, you may want to experience what it’s like to work together for yourself. I offer a one-off 90 minute session at a reduced rate of £75 so you can assess if working together is right for you.
You can schedule your session through this link (you will receive a request for payment after booking a time.)
