a Public Speaker and Personal Coach from Los Angeles, California.
When I was 19 years old, I was suddenly diagnosed with an incurable disease of the stomach that caused me to be unable to eat. Almost overnight, I went from being a bright-eyed college Freshman to being completely despondent and incapacitated. In a flash I lost complete control of my life, and rapidly fell into a dark spiral of depression, anxiety, and severe anorexia.
By the middle of my Freshman year, I was down to 112 pounds of pure skin and bone. I was starving myself, refusing to take my medications, and denying that there was a problem.
By age 20 I felt completely hopeless and helpless. Relationships were out of the question. While everyone around me was having the time of their lives, I was cowering in my dormitory planning a suicide.
After hitting this rock bottom, I had no choice but to make a change and get some professional help. With the support of my family, I began taking accountability, making serious lifestyle changes, and getting healthier.
I made some good friends, became a Personal Trainer, and started helping others. I even got a girlfriend.
I thought I was doing great. But as my girlfriend and I got deeper into our relationship, I quickly learned that I had some real emotional issues in the love department: codependency, unhealthy attachment, and fear of abandonment. And although I was loved, at my core I felt completely unlovable -- and it was showing up in my relationship.
So, back to counseling I went.
I once again had to humble myself and change my behavior. I did the work and began to see real progress. I developed authentic confidence and learned what healthy relationships consist of; I learned how to be happy and at peace; I learned how to have the things I want and want the things I have.
Fast forward after many years of working on myself, I’ve transformed my life inside and out. I believe the final stage of healing is using what you went through in order to help others; so every day, I harness my experiences and teach others how to improve their lives.
Through practical guidance and actionable steps, I will teach you how to love and respect yourself, discover your unique gift, feel fulfilled, and create lasting relationships.
I have an extraordinary life because I was willing to change my thoughts and actions for the better. Now it is your turn.
