My Story

I have always felt called to help others.  The intricacies and complexity of the human mind fascinates me.  This led to my initial career in psychology. However, after working in the field for a number of years, I realized I wanted to focus less on what was wrong with people and more on helping people connect to their inherent wellness and live out their potential.  Especially people that have gone through challenging experiences who need support to reclaim their wellness. 

Changes in life circumstance can throw us out of balance, disempower us, and make us feel unwell as a whole.  Believe me. I have experienced health challenges such as cancer, loss of loved ones, career change, financial uncertainty, and divorce.  It’s easy to get out of whack.  But over time I’ve come to realize that as tough as these challenges were, there were blessings amidst adversity and there was a capacity for wellness.  It was all a matter of where I put my focus.  If I focused purely on that specific physical condition or personal crisis, my wellness felt threatened.  However, if I focused on the degree of social support, how relationships deepened, the amount of learning that occurred, the mindful appreciation of little things, the  spiritual growth that these situations fostered, then I was well in many ways.

Instead of focusing on what I couldn’t control, I could focus on what I could do to facilitate healing and wellness in body, mind, and spirit.  And I realized that I could do quite a lot! I have experienced the healing power and peace of yoga. I have experienced the power of wellness coaching myself and how it allowed me to explore possibilities and take action in ways that I never would have on my own. And I can honestly say my life has been drastically enriched because of it. I am happier. I am more hopeful. I am more confident that I can handle set-backs in any one area of wellness because I know I have strengths in other areas that will carry me through.

Why I Created Wellfinity

I firmly believe that there are an infinite number of small choices you can make each day to enhance your wellness and bring more happiness, energy, joy, and balance to your life.  Hence the name Wellfinity.  When we are well, we are more powerful forces in the world and are able to fulfill our purpose.  Wellness is cultivated by creating the right mindset and seeing through the lens of possibility.  Sometimes when we’re stuck in the muck of life it can be really hard to see an alternative, to see our inherent wellness and tap into our own power.  That’s why I created Wellfinity.   To inspire you, support you, and to empower you to action.  To help you transform into the radiant well being that you are.  It’s not easy, but with the right encouragement and focus wellness can be achieved!
