Overworking & Hitting Bottom (Again)

I recently hit another bottom in my life. Luckily, this one didn’t involve drugs or alcohol (still sober, 3+ years). But it did involve something I think many of us can relate to:

I hit my bottom with over-working.

After a very full year living in New York City, producing content & courses, and going full-speed, it finally caught up to me. Once again, I could feel things around me crashing down and falling apart (mainly, my natural sense of joy and ease).

This experience was very reminiscent to my first bottom, when I got sober in 2011. This time, I found myself exhausted, in my bed, wondering “What the hell am I doing?”

Why am I working so hard? 
What am I trying to achieve?  
What is my purpose in life?

These moments of reckoning stop us right in our tracks. And it’s there – in the stillness and

Hitting Rock-Bottom with Men & Finding Spirituality

I want to share with you more about who I am, and how I came to understand love and relationships.

My personal journey starts with me hitting bottomfeeling completely exhausted, confused, disheartened and discouraged about love. 

When I hit this bottom, I didn’t realize that I would open up to receive the biggest gift of my life – an understanding that we’re all profoundly connected to Love within (and when we rely on this connection, we create incredible lives from the inside-out).

In this video, I’ll share with you the details about why my relationships used to be disastrous with men, how I bottomed-out, the profound insight that changed everything, and how my life is completely different now as a result. Watch the video below:

Why I Had to Get Sober & How It Changed My Life

This year, I celebrated four years of sobriety. Can I just say wow!?!

On one hand, I can’t believe it’s been this long and I’m so proud I’ve made it this far. On the other, life before sobriety is a distant memory; it feels like a completely different lifetime ago.

I’d like to share my story with you – what it was like before I got sober, what happened, and how my life has completely different since the day I took my last drink.

While I’m not necessarily an advocate for getting sober, I am an advocate for making decisions that will significantly improve your life. 

For me, getting clean three years ago was the biggest turning point in my life and set me on the path of creating everything I currently have.

With that, here’s my story – why I had to get sober, and how it changed …

How I Stopped Dating Unavailable Men

If I’ve learned anything from this work, it’s that relationships mirror our beliefs back to us.

The patterns that occur in romantic love are clues about what we believe about ourselves, others and love itself.

I know this concept through and through. I’ve dedicated my life to helping others transform their relationships by changing their internal realities.

So you can imagine how annoyed, frustrated and disheartened I felt when the man I was involved with a year ago suddenly began to feel “unavailable” to me.

Again? I’m feeling this again?

Yes.

Again.

Apparently I had more work to do. (Ugggh.)

Relationships are a process. It’s a journey, not a destination. You don’t arrive at perfection with another person and stay there forever. The whole point of intimate connection is to usher us towards growth.

This – believe it or not – is what keeps romantic love interesting. When …

How to Rise Out of Feeling Stuck

As humans we’re programed to evolve. Not only biologically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well. We have an innate desire to become better, more whole, more happy.

But have ever noticed that while certain areas of your life and easy to transform, others are not? As a relationship coach, I hear it all the time: “I’m fantastic in my career, social life and health – but when it comes to love, I need a TON of help.” If you relate to this – don’t worry – you’re not the only one.

In this article I’m going to talk about why certain areas of our lives are more difficult to transform than others, and what you can do about it.

The reason we cannot make progress in certain areas of our lives is because of one, simple thing:

We don’t believe in ourselves or in the possibilities of what can
