For many years I worked in a traditional therapeutic setting - I was a mental health and addiction specialist for the past 6 years in a holistic treatment center and have also worked in social services for the past 10 years. Through my own personal growth and healing journey I have realized I am now being called to guide and lead in a different capacity in this time of deep evolution.
I have always felt a calling to help the collective
For a long time, I was unconscious to the intuition and the pure empathy that was housed in my mind and body - I pushed a lot of this away due to past trauma, perceptions, ways of thinking, dis-ease, disregard to the masculine and feminine within, and so much more. Now, I focus on guiding and leading others in their divine plan, purpose and power. I help people build the confidence to lead in the way they desire to lead. I help people find their divine purpose in this world. I help people be exactly who they long to be. And all this work revolves around the three pillars of divine leadership.
my journey into coaching
By 2012 I had obtained both my Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Social Work and I was excited to start serving a wide range of people in different capacities. Two years into this path I was finding huge success in my career and was in a loving and healthy relationship, however, something still felt off. I felt a cloud of sadness over me, a sense of unfulfillment, an eb and flow of continuous anxiety. I realized I wasn't living what I was teaching to my patients - I wasn't moving through my own personal trauma, self esteem, beliefs, perceptions, projections, expectations, resentments, communication issues.
I was able to teach others how to do all of this but I was not able to recognize the shifts that I needed to make within myself. I began to reach out to others for support. I started working with a therapist, which went well for a short period of time. I then decided I needed something more - I decided to hire a coach. This is when everything shifted for me. I decided to show up; to shift everything in my mind and my awareness. I was open, honest and willing to change everything in my life - for the first time in my life. I've been triggered and confronted; I've broken down ... more times than I can count. But I cannot tell you how excited and grateful I am for the suffering and pain I have gone through, as well as the ease and happiness - it is all here for a reason.
If you choose to work with me - your life will also move through a complete evolution.
ways to work with me
A deep connection to your soul's purpose is the cornerstone of becoming a powerful leader.
By cultivating a deep connection to your inner knowing you can directly lead from your heart, your true purpose, your true desire - from the deep knowing of who you are, who you are meant to be and who you are here to serve in this world.
This is the type of Power you have been craving to feel.
Pure Power means you have a deep establishment within yourself. You know what your truth is and you are unwavering from that truth. You do not need validation from others, from an amount of money, from having a certain material thing. You no longer need a drink or substance to be completely confident. You are solid in the confidence and strength that moves within you.
Having sovereignty means staying in integrity with yourself at all times.
It is through the connection to purpose and the cultivation of pure power that you are able to stand in alignment with your highest purpose at all times without being swayed by external circumstances.
Brooke encouraged and supported me in envisioning an awesome life for myself by recognizing what I truly want. She guided me in setting and reaching realistic steps and provided resources to utilize in attaining my desires of personal fulfillment and security. She helped me to realize the limiting beliefs that have been holding me back all this time were self-imposed stories I’ve used as survival mechanisms over the years to get by. Brooke helped me in finding my voice. I am now communicating my needs and feel empowered rather than guilty for making space for things that light me up. I catch myself marveling at moments of joy in unlikely or uncomfortable places. I have gained an understanding of what makes ME happy and feel well, and in turn I am happy and able to share the abundant parts of my joyous self with others instead of being resentful of giving away scarce pieces of my exhausted self. I feel like a whole, authentic, worthy human and I am so grateful to Brooke for providing the guidance to get me to this place, showing me that I have the ability to continue to thrive on my own.

Because my background is in therapy, I might introduce therapeutic techniques into our sessions if I feel it might be useful and appropriate.
However, coaching and therapy are fundamentally different. If you decide to hire a coach, it is an investment in yourself, in your future. Coaching is for those who are ready and willing to change. Who are tired of talking about their same problems and are instead ready to take action. To let go of your 'old self' and rise up into who you were destined to be - your higher self.
coaching versus therapy
Coaching does touch on the past but we do not sit in it. We see how trauma and past events are currently manifesting in your life, and then we focus on how to release those to move gracefully and powerfully into your future. If you are finding that you need more mental health or trauma therapy then I will be able to recommend you to an amazing therapist that will dig deeper into the past. As a coach, I will support you and encourage you in many ways but I will also confront you when I know you are playing small and stuck in self-sabotaging & scarcity mentality. I will inspire, empower, support, love and give everything I have to transform your life into the greatness you were made to be.
