Hi. I'm amy.


There was a time in my life when I hid in the bathroom at work.

I cried at the overwhelming state of my life. I felt far from any kind of purpose. Unsure how to climb out of the hole I was in.


My emotional state was crumbling.

I hated my soul-sucking job. My marriage was on the rocks. We were struggling with infertility. My spiritual walk had slowed to a wounded crawl. I was a taking terrible care of my body. 


I found myself in a motel room, lying face down on a germy bedspread.

As I pulled myself up, it felt like my body was full of lead. I walked into the bathroom and looked into the mirror. I didn’t recognize the person staring back at me- she was a hot mess.

As I stood frozen before my own reflection, I realized my very first step would require surrender… a laying down of my ego, my control, and my soul.

I begged God to help me find my way forward.


That night, I began my real work.

I decided, whatever it took, I'd find the courage to change.

I'd learn to listen- to my own heart and to God’s leading. I'd stop trying so hard to please other people and focus on pleasing God first.

I would own the issues that kept me stuck. Pursue my purpose. And, with God's help, live into my created capacity.


That was sixteen years ago.

Today, I'm doing work I adore- as a writer, licensed therapist and certified coach. I'm married to the same man and we have a 13 year old son. At 46, I'm in the greatest shape of my life.

I'm quicker to connect and live from my essence- that place where my spirit and The Divine- beautifully dance. I feel a more intimate connection with God each day.

Like all great adventures, there are valleys to persevere.



I find myself living in the sweet spot.

Not because my life lacks obstacles, but because obstacles take me deeper into the journey.

I'm continually learning what to do with the inevitable pain in life. How to march onward with courage and holy confidence. Which ironically, increases the joy I'm able to experience.


As your coach, I can help you do the same.

In much less time than it has taken me!
