Frequently asked questions

How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a Mindset Transformation Coach?


To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting “compelling story”, that brought me to where I am today – coaching people like you on exactly what to do to reduce Stress, Anxiety and Depression (S.A.D) to become Balanced, Aware and Dynamic B.A.D Asses!. That defining moment in my life happened in November 2009 after one hell of a year.

It all started in early February 2009 when my marriage of 13 years began to crumble when my husband seemed to be going through a mid-life crisis or at least that’s what I classified it as. By summer, we both found ourselves seeking comfort outside of our marriage. I was so torn by this. After all we had made a commitment to each other. We had two boys who were 8 and 10 at the time. On top of my problems at home, work became overwhelming. I was falling apart crying more often than not. I didn’t want to get out of bed. I was in management and headed up professional organizations. I had a good game face but as soon as I was behind closed doors it was another story. I had bouts of anxiety and depression off and on since I was a teenager but this time was like nothing I had experienced before. By November that year I had my suicide completely planned out. In December I nearly executed it. However, when I walked out of my bedroom to go get a knife my boys were there. Seeing them, hearing them ask me what was wrong to which I responded, “nothing it’s just my allergies”, and them telling me to feel better, made something snap inside my heart. It was in that moment that I vowed to do whatever it took to pull myself together. Not everyone is as fortunate as me to have little angels, but I was and am certainly grateful for mine.

The following months were filled with visits to the therapists, psychologists, neurologist, acupuncturists, and chiropractors. Many whom prescribed medications. I was on meds for stress, anxiety, depression and migraines. I’d have good days and I had bad days and I continued to fight the volatile, imbalanced emotions with all I had. All in all, it I felt like none of this medical stuff was helping me. Over the next few years, I started researching other ways to heal. I read self-help books, took classes and participated in numerous workshops until I learned whole heartedly to be grateful for my children, my successful career and so much more. Before I knew it I had stopped seeing most of the doctors and had weaned myself off of some of the meds. I learned about equilibration and how to actually balance my emotions followed by learning about forest bathing and how connecting to nature can actually heal body, mind and spirit. After about 5 years, I was able to stop seeing all of the doctors and was medication free. It was as if something all of a sudden magically took all the S.A.D away. My migraines stopped. I was in a state of peace and contentment on a regular basis. If I started to faulter because life happens, I knew it was okay. I knew now how to pull myself back into equilibrium swiftly. It was A-Freaking-Mazing!!

By 2015, I was ready to share what I had learned with the world. I became a Certified Mindset Transformation Coach and later a Certified Forest Therapy Guide.

I cleaned up my past and started teaching others how they can do the same: I watched their stress, anxiety and depression diminish. I watched their confidence and self-worth sore. I watched them become successful at all they sought to achieve. I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping other successful professionals who have become overwhelmed by work and life to become B.A.D Asses and have a Massive Mindset Shift®.

Since then, I’ve worked with many private clients and spoken in front of countless groups. I manifested a life with Livelihood Spirit Balance where how I live my life is in alignment with my authentic self. A life full of abundance in all areas including financial; and I have created programs including an online course "From S.A.D Ass To B.A.D Ass™", an 8 week nature immersion and coaching program called "From Technology to Trees™", a 12 week intensive signature program called "The Massive Mindset Shift®", and a 6 month professional development coaching program called "Living with Livelihood Spirit Balance™". All of which are designed to your the B.A.D Ass self shine through!




Who are your clients?


I mainly work with corporate professionals in Information Technology (IT) and Security but my programs are perfect for management professionals in many industries and departments including:

  • Human Resources

  • Finance & Accounting

  • Compliance

  • Fraud and Investigations

  • Education & Training

  • Really any industry professional who spends 6 or more hours a day at a computer screen!




What makes you different from other Mindset and Life Coaches?


Although we will occasionally touch upon time management and other required skills for success, you have me as an equilibration expert to help balance your emotions. I work with you on the inner and outer principles for success including how connecting to nature and the more than human world can help you body, mind, and spirit. On top of that, add in that I’m a Certified Law of Attraction Wealth Practitioner and BAAMM you’ve got the 1,2,3 punch. What that means to you is that you get a wise-sage-meets-kick-butt authentic Stress Management Maven who’s going to help you succeed in all areas of life. Finally, I’m spiritual and I don’t pretend to hide it either. But I’m not always delicate, you’ll get a straight to the point quick and honest responses from me.

I’m concerned with how to get your stress, anxiety and/or depression under control so you can be Balanced, Aware and Dynamic - a real B.A.D Ass! On occasion, you may not like what I have to tell you – but you can be sure I will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s standing in the way of your success and how to get rid of the obsticle FAST! Then you can start getting results in record time. I also tend to throw in a healthy dose of humor and inspiration, which always helps!




What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?


The "From S.A.D Ass To B.A.D Ass™" and "The Massive Mindset Shift®" courses, workshops, products and programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about achieving life balance, more confidence, a greater sense of self-worth and success in all they set out to achieve – it means getting out from behind the computer screen once in a while and not running around all day long, beating yourself up saying: “There has to be something more to life.” They were created for you to put systems (skills and tools) in place within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to becoming and living a life of a truly Balanced, Aware and Dynamic B.A.D Ass with Livelihood Spirit Balance who is capable of great success!

Having been a professional in middle to upper management myself, I’m known to work best with other individuals who are at that same level who feel stuck and overwhelmed by work and life, people who are committed to their success no matter what, who are super-ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to conquer their stress, anxiety and depression. My clients often tell me – “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it!” Consider what you’ll do with me to be a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to achieve work life balance and greater success without the S.A.D!! You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: Being a B.A.D Ass who had a Massive Mindset Shift®




For what type of professionals are your programs NOT going to work?


Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.) From S.A.D Ass to B.A.D AssTM and The Massive Mindset Shift® programs are NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely, financially desperate, at least not right away. It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust the recommendations I give them and do not do the work (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment.) If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. Do yourself (3) favors:

  1. Get some money coming in with a full-time or part-time job at the very least, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on your assignments and the BIG picture.
  2. Sign up for the low cost Balanced Minded Goal Setting for Middle Managers online course at https://stressmanagementu.com/ The information in this course will get you started towards achieving your goals until you’re ready to work with me one-on-one.
  3. Make a point to read my monthly newsletter!

Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, schedule some time with me and we’ll get you started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me.)

Other types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?




What exactly are the From S.A.D Ass To B.A.D Ass™ and Massive Mindset Shift® systems and what do they include?


From S.A.D Ass To B.A.D Ass™ is the precursor to the Massive Mindset Shift® and gives you the run down on the skills needed to become a B.A.D Ass professional.

The Massive Mindset Shift® takes being a B.A.D Ass to the next level. This is where I work with you one on one to really dig down and take you on a journey to completely change the way you think and believe about yourself. Who are you authentically? What do you truly desire and require to lead a successful life? It begins with understanding your true values, where your power really comes from, how to manifest what you want (including more money), creating powerful intentions that get you results as well as the outer pieces to powerfully bring you to achieve your goals. Here’s what the System teaches you to do:

  • Set Your Intentions

    We examine where you are currently in life and get CRYSTAL clear about your intentions, what you want to experience in your personal life and / or professional life. Before you can manifest what you want, you have to KNOW what you desire and require. You’ll learn the difference between setting goals and intentions, and how we will use the Law of Attraction to your advantage in this transition.
  • Release Your Inner Resistance

    You probably have a good idea of what you need to be doing but yet are still struggling in procrastination, feeling stuck and spinning in circles. You’ll be learning proven techniques for breaking through your inner resistance, personal negativity, self-doubt, fear, anxiety, and all of that “stuff” that keeps you playing small.
  • Understanding You

    After tackling all the dirt there is still some work to do in order to help you in moving from the past to the present and into the future. Understanding your values and how your choices are made will also help you to move on to the fabulous life that you truly deserve.
  • The Skills for Success

    Once you have released the negativity in your life and you have a greater understanding of you, it’s time to zone in on skills for success including the power of focus and listening to help you thrive.
  • The Law of Attraction

    Next, we’ll work on self-confidence, self-belief, gratitude and dive into the Law of Attraction and the power of affirmations so you can get a better understanding of how these key concepts and affirmations can take you to the next level!
  • Tools of the Trade

    In connection with releasing your inner resistance, getting a firm understanding of who you are, and locking down the skills for mental success, you will learn what methods and tools are available to you to help keep that negativity at bay and keep your emotions and mind in balance. Here we will focus on what equilibration is, what it means to be mindful and how meditation can be incorporated in your daily routine.
  • A New Way to Look at Life

    You have released the negativity in your life and you have a new set of power tools in your back pocket. Now your clear for greater acceptance and understanding of how your life balance, faith (not necessarily religious) and enthusiasm can help you have a more fulfilling life.
  • It’s Time to Flourish!!

    The past is the past, you know what you desire and require, you’ve got the tools and skills, you have shifted to a balanced mindset but what are the next steps? How do you finally make that transition and have a completely Massive Mindset Shift? Here we will look at and get a grasp on the traits to bring you to the next level: Passion, Motivation, Determination and Perseverance.
  • Visualize and Seize the Future

    It’s all about DREAMING BIG, visualizing the future and getting an understanding of what success programing is.
  • Time to Celebrate YOU!!

    We’ll focus time celebrating wins and creating the new habit of celebrating what’s showing up for you.

Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?


Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Client Testimonials section and read all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to, either because the person has gotten the results you want to get too, or perhaps because that person is in a similar situation. Then feel free to email or call them and ask what they got from working with me and my programs.




How quickly can I expect results?


That depends on how quickly you can make those inner shifts. Some clients are ready to go and start to see their Massive Mindset Shift® begin about half-way through, sometimes even a few weeks in, while others have a bit more work to do first. It also depends on your level of commitment and the time you invest in doing the assignments.




How can I guarantee myself that I will achieve B.A.D Assism and a Massive Mindset Shift®, in record time?


Do all of your homework. Be totally committed to your success. Understand that this is a process, a proven one, that works if you take action and implement all of the steps. All my clients who have diligently applied every step of each program have successfully become B.A.D Asses, in much less time with long lasting results than they would have on their own trying to conquer stress, anxiety and depression (S.A.D).
