I’m a scientist, a wife, a mother, a girlfriend, a burner, a healer, a Reiki master, and a certified relationship coach.
I didn’t start out thinking I’d be a relationship coach. I originally worked as a biochemist for 9 years. Along the way, I learned what it’s like to really be in a long term relationship. I’ve been with my high school sweetheart for 18 years. I’ve learned that people grow and change and that it takes conscious effort to grow and change together!
Our most difficult period of growth and change came when we opened our relationship to polyamory and burning man culture. Such radically different ways of thinking and being stressed our relationship to the max. We knew we had so much love for each other, but we didn’t know how to share it, we didn’t know how to embody it.
As a last ditch effort to save our marriage, we went to a retreat at The Center for Thriving Relationships in Bloomington, IN. Learning from the beautiful Bret and Christine Eartheart, we realized that we had no idea what a healthy relationship actually looked like! No wonder trying to add additional relationships went so poorly… After a period of intense growth and self discovery, we’ve come to a period where we practice polyamory from a place of love and abundance.
When the opportunity arose to become a Certified Thriving Relationship Coach, I jumped at the opportunity to dive deep and learn more about relationships from Bret and Christine Eartheart. While I learned from the Earthearts directly, I’ve also learned a lot from the work of the Gottmans, Marshall Rosenberg, Jessica Fern, Kathy Labriola and Emily Nagoski. I would be so honored to share all that I’ve learned with you!
I live in Indianapolis, IN and offer coaching services through Zoom or in-person if fully vaccinated.
