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! Do you know about Louise? OMG sister, get “You Can Heal Your Life” today and learn the power of what you say to yourself! God bless Louise Hay! I’ve gotta give this Queen of healing her props! You will thank me 😉

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? Read more about my journey.

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! 

The mom who’s overwhelmed and burnt like toast from devoting all she has to her family with nothing left for herself. I took countless leadership and personal development courses (and still do).

I studied to become a trained life coach who would provide that critical support that I received. The partnership which helped me turn my life around, take control and responsibility for my grown ass destination! Are you ready to chat and see what’s possible for you?

Oh heck, 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 woman like you.

 Yes, I’m in awe of my damn self on the daily and grateful for the grown ass fire that wakes me up every morning to create the life of MY dreams. I’m proud to put my oxygen mask on FIRST! 

 I’m prioritizing MY life, making joy and fun paramount. I also sing, dance, run a business and am there for my kids – it’s a win-win!

 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.

 

That’s why I’m here…to help you get the courage to take your life back from living as dedicated yet unfulfilled soul who’s withering away inside from lack of fulfillment, unkept promises to yourself and flat out – poor self care! Want to know more about my motherhood struggles?

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 and hits the reset button the next morning.

When I look around, I see so many smart, capable mothers who have gotten lost in the shield of service for too many years. Is that you mama?

As you see yourself maturing and thinking what’s next for you, are you wondering if it’s too late? I sense the sadness in your heart and want you to know that yes, you can feel alive again with passion, sass and purpose! So, yeah grown ass mama – let’s get it! Make yourself a priority and schedule a call with me to discuss what reinventing your life could look like.

I love empowering women to live their dreams!

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.

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.
