I focus on helping individuals on their chronic illness journey.

If you’re confronting the hurdles and challenges chronic illness brings, I offer personalized guidance and valuable resources. Together, we’ll approach change with courage, empowering you to find strength. My goal is to be your partner, offering you support and companionship on your journey to thriving through chronic illness.

Coaching individuals on their chronic illness journey is deeply personal to me.

After my own diagnosis with IIH in 2018, I faced the challenge of adapting to life with chronic illness. Through my journey, I discovered that this adjustment process is shared by many. My experience led me to develop tools and resilience that I now use to guide others.

I’m here as your partner, offering actionable guidance for growth, resilience, and empowerment, drawing from the lessons of my own path.
