About Me

Learning to love and accept myself was a challenge since I was 5!

I  always wanted to help women since I could remember. I just wasn’t sure what that would look like because I had so much to get through myself.

I had been through trauma quite early in life when I lost my dad. I experienced years of hurt, shame, anger and loss as I navigated through my then toxic relationship with my mother. I tried every possible way to numb my feelings including using alcohol at a very young age, dating older men and, eventually using drugs.

Thankfully, I learned to use dance and music to express my pent up feelings and I began songwriting as a way of healing myself.  It helped me release the pain at least temporarily. Later, I discovered the work of Louise Hay as a teen and she changed my life!

I learned that I am not broken or in need of fixing.

In fact, all of my experiences were manifested by me to mold me into the powerful, heart-centered and resilient women I longed to become. I knew this message of self-love and acceptance was the key to everything for me. The fog began to clear and I started to see life beyond the excuses of what “they did to me.” I took responsibility for all that was and decided to reimagine the life I wanted. Want more back story about me?

The Goddess emerges…

Since hiring my first coach way back in the 90’s, I’ve been on a mission to reclaim my own identity which makes my heart sing.  I’ve had a calling for as long as I can remember to help women be stronger, to rise up from the ashes and learn how to love themselves more. 

 As I came into my own power and grew bold enough to expand my vision of how I wanted to impact the world, I knew I wanted to serve women – specifically – grown ass moms of teens and adults. 

The women who are overwhelmed and burnt like toast having given up everything for their family with nothing left for themselves. I studied to become a trained coach who would provide that critical support that I received which helped me turn my life around, take control and responsibility for my grown ass destination!

Oh hell, I’m still a Goddess in progress and I’m truly proud of the work I’ve done on myself first, so that I could share it with grown ass womxn like you. I’m in awe of my damn self everyday and grateful for the grown ass fire that wakes me up every morning to create the life of MY dreams. 

I’m prioritizing MY life, putting my joy FIRST, making music, dancing, running a business and being a great mom. Yes, I still volunteer but only for projects that I want to be involved in – definitely not ruled by the shoulds anymore! Whoo hoo! I am free! I’m doing things that light me up.

Isn’t that what you want? A life of your own…beyond motherhood?

That’s why I’m here…to help you get the courage to take your life back from living as a thankless, indentured servant a.k.a. #WhinyMartyr! Want to know more about my motherhood struggles? Read the backstory here.

There will be push back and trust me, because you’ve probably spoiled your family and those around you rotten! I know what it’s like to feel hopeless and forgotten like you don’t even freaking matter and that you’re “the help” that cleans it all up no matter what time of the night and puts all Humpty’s pieces back together again without even a “thank you.”

When I look around, I see so many smart, capable womxn who have lost themselves in selfless servitude and motherhood. Is that you? As you see yourself maturing, thinking about what’s next in your career, possibly a soon to be empty nester, are you wondering when life passed you by and if it’s too late? I sense the sadness in your heart and want you to feel alive again with passion, sass and purpose! Yes! 

Can you feel the breeze from that open door? Inviting you to take control of your untapped future and light it up with grown ass adventures that have you singing “Life IS Good NOW!” 

THIS is why I do what I do! I’m here to help you reclaim and reinvent your life in a way that makes you feel sassy, sexy and satisfied. Ready to take the first step? Book a call with me to explore how I can support you in reclaiming your identity, and your life! 

I love empowering women to live their dreams!

Here’s What Happy Clients Say About Me

Prior to receiving coaching from Yvette, [life] was exhausting and overwhelming…coaching was like having a third eye – it allowed me an opportunity to celebrate me and to be honest [with myself] and accountable.

Donna Johnson | Global Logistics Specialist

I learned to operate from my essence rather than from a reactionary place. My thinking was also expanded…Yvette helped me to identify growth areas and provided tools for overcoming my limitations in those areas.  I appreciate her candidness and approach to coaching.
