I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor in the business of Spiritual Fitness.
What is Spiritual Fitness?
Becoming spiritually fit is the practice of training and training hard.
The physical body? Yes, but more importantly the training of our minds.
The thoughts we think, the words we speak, the actions we take and the beliefs we allow.
The physical body's health is just a small fraction of what we need in order to achieve our greatest accomplishments, manifest our deepest desires, and create the lives we deserve to live.
You cannot be happy just by being thin. You can't generate love from others by accumulating wealth. You cannot lose the weight or kick that addiction by sheer willpower alone. It doesn't last and it's certainly not enjoyable! There's a synergy that exists between the body, mind, and soul that absolutely must take place in order for you to live your healthiest, happiest life.
Living for decades in a spiritual deficit cost me years, health, money, happiness, and nearly my life - on more than one occasion. It's why I'm so passionate about sharing this work and helping others develop into the absolute highest and most radiant versions of themselves. It's work that matters.
If you are passionate about living a life of wellness, claiming personal power over your life and becoming Spiritually Fit, this community is for YOU.

I speak openly about my struggle with alcohol and how it became a "slow burn" that nearly took me down entirely. You can read about part of my story in The Addiction Diaries, which was published in 2020.
More importantly, though, is how, over time I've become so grateful for my addiction. If I wasn't so deep into it, and wasn't hurting myself so badly and so often, I may never have been forced to face years of past trauma, admit that I was miserable with myself, my life, and my choices, go head onto into the fires of self-love, self-care, and deep emotional healing - something I never wanted to do or even thought about. Addiction FORCED me to face all of this and I'll be forever grateful.
Addiction for me, isn't nearly as much of a drinking problem as it is a thinking problem. I don't discount the physical effects that substance abuse has on the body, but believe it or not, the physical withdrawl is the easier of two beasts to slay when it comes to taking power over your addiction. The mental is far more challenging.
That's where becoming "Spiritually Sober" has transformed my life. Sobriety has never been about just removing the alcohol. That alone is not enough. It's about healing from the inside out, creating healthy space for new neural pathways to be created, developing new habits, rewiring everything I've ever done, believed, and said to myself - and THAT my friend takes work. But it's good work. And it's work...that WORKS.
If you are struggling with any kind of addiction, from alcohol or drugs to negative self-talk, complaining or overeating, I invite you to examine your relationship with that behavior. Really ask yourself if it is serving you anymore. If not, I invite you to join me for "The Spiritually Fit Challenge" or the 3-Week "Cork It!" Challenge which focuses specifically on kicking Wine O'Clock to the curb!

The release of The Addiction Diaries is here!
I sure wish everyone would go read it...
"This collection is a major contribution to the addiction literature canon by bringing a more human face to the public health problem of addiction...and the joys of recovery."
~ Dr. Jamie Marich, Author, Trauma and the 12 Steps, Dancing Mindfulness, EMDR Therapy & Mindfulness for Trauma-Focused Care, Trauma Made Simple, Process Not Perfection and EMDR Made Simple
"I had a hard time putting this book down. Every story has a unique voice and perspective, but each one is also full of hope and strength. It is a really amazing collection of stories told by people who are brave enough to share their experiences with addiction with the rest of us."
~ Jen W.
"This book takes the experiences of several different people from many different walks of life, each painting a colorful picture of their unique experiences with the one thing we all have in common: we either are an addict or love someone who is an addict.
There are stories of hope, forgiveness, loss, and rebuilding. You will walk away from this book with new realizations. You may even find a story that sounds like your own.
The Addiction Diaries is one that is difficult to put down! "
