Hi, I’m Monique.
Certified life coach, teacher and intuitive healer. I’m also a former “do it all” gal who never wanted to disappoint others. I lived life doing the “right thing”, living by others’ rules and expectations. Fiercely independent, and driven to be perfect. I checked all the boxes – successful legal career, financial abundance, loving partner, great house. (Let me be clear, I like being successful and financially abundant, but I also like being happy.)
My outside world looked great, but my inside world was crumbling. A small, still voice whispered repeatedly that this was not the life I came to live. My mantra – work harder, push more, and the voice will go away.
This worked for years, until it did not. Chronic illness entered my life, and I found myself bedridden for several years after multiple infections. The things I treasured – house, abundant finances, friendships, romantic partner, and independence – disappeared. The only thing remaining was the still voice wanting to be set free.
And guess what? It was! The process was not always easy, and there were times I said “I give up.” But I didn’t. That still voice grew stronger as I peeled back the layers – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual – and what I found was extraordinary. Happiness.
How? I learned to live life on my own terms. I owned my life and learned what truly made me happy. I worked with wonderful mentors and became a certified life coach, intuitive healer and Reiki master. I learned to say “no” without apology or explanation. I learned to listen to my body, and nourish it with healthy food and healthy thoughts. I learned that boundaries are not about keeping others out, but about letting more of myself in. And, I learned that intuition is my greatest teacher and gift.
Today, I teach my clients how to do the same. Whether they are an entrepreneur, traditional career person, or an empty nester, each is at a crossroads and knows there is something greater to be had. Each knows returning to their old life is not an option. Each knows they are ready to live a deeper and richer life. Each needs guidance in doing so, and I am here to support them.
Together, we develop a road map – through self-care practices, imagery, guided meditations, and frequencies – that will enrich their lives, so that even through the inevitable rough times life becomes easier and more joyful.
Today, I can easily say that I love what I do. It is not only what I do, but it is who I am. It is how I live my life. The small, still voice I once silenced, is now my guide through life. And, I want the same for you.
