Passionate About Inspiring Others

I became a This Naked Mind certified coach because I believe in the science and compassion based approach that Annie Grace beautifully put together. I also recieved a certificate from The Center for Addiction and Mental Health on the Fundamentals of Addiction. 

My life experience and capacity for compassion serve as my guiding light when it comes to coaching and being able to meet someone exactly where they are at.


Living Over the Influence is about finding comfort and confidence in your own skin and breaking through your limiting beliefs and self doubt.


You don't have to hit a rock bottom to realize alcohol is negatively impacting your life, but if you have, I promise you it was a lesson and not a life sentence.

Statement of integrity

living over the influence

At Living Over the Influence, my focus is on guiding clients to transcend the negative influences that hinder their well-being.


Personally, I'm dedicated to a lifestyle centered on personal development, continual growth, and expansive living.


For myself, those things are possible through being alcohol-free and cocaine-free. However, I refrain from using the term "sober," opting instead for a path of mindfulness and deliberate, conscious choices.

I firmly believe that just as some individuals require glasses for clearer vision, others may need medication. My approach remains open to various modalities, including THC, CBD, psychedelics, and other alternatives, provided they align with the client's coaching objectives. I believe in inclusivity and I do not discriminate in my practice because of my choice to be alcohol and cocaine free. I understand that each person's journey is unique. I emphasize mindfulness and an open-minded perspective.

As a compassion-driven coach, my commitment lies in assisting clients in liberating themselves from anything obstructing their connection to their authentic self. Having conquered my own battles with alcohol and cocaine, I cultivate an atmosphere of safety, trust, empathy, and compassion.

My goal is to empower clients to shatter limiting beliefs and shed habits that hinder their progress. Drawing from personal experiences and professional training, including programs from This Naked Mind (TNMI Institute and Affective Liminal Psychology) and The Fundamentals of Addiction with CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health), I serve as a guide, motivator, and ally, assisting clients in discovering their own path forward.
