About

Are you tired of feeling tired?  Do you dream of waking up and feeling like you actually slept? Is your goal to get out of bed with purpose and not snooze your alarm? Do you wonder how much of your fatigue is normal and how much is because you are living with narcolepsy? If any of these apply to you, then you are in the right place.

What do I want to offer?

I want to help you get from just coping with your symptoms, to living your best life.  Sure, I recognize there is no narcolepsy cure (although I try to keep up with the research).  We will have to do the best we can with what we have available.

Are you a doctor?

No, I am not a doctor, and I am not here to replace yours. However, the medications your doctor has to offer you are only one part of the equation.  I have never met a doctor that understands what living with narcolepsy is like. Who could I turn to that could help me set ambitious but realistic goals for myself? I studied hard so that I could continue moving toward a fulfilling life with narcolepsy.

Find your narcolepsy lifestyle

I want to help you manage your lifestyle. I won’t teach any certain method to you or tell you that you must follow a certain diet, buy a certain supplement or exercise a specific amount to get better.  What I will do is challenge you to stretch your mind, and question your beliefs in order to have a better understanding of yourself and how you might achieve your dreams.

In order to feel like narcolepsy is not holding us back, we have to understand who we are now, and who we want to be.  Then, we look for ways to achieve our desired state that follow our own values, beliefs, and strengths.  There is no one set path for anyone! But I want to help you find your unique road to recovery and success.

Why Me?

I am a Certified Life Coach and hold further certifications in NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Reiki.  My experience identifying the behaviors and beliefs that are holding people back allows me to guide them to get to know themselves better.  I have the skills to help them release negative beliefs and change their behaviors.

I have overcome so many obstacles to find my path. As a child, I was diagnosed quite young and became completely depressed and hopeless about life.  I began engaging in self-harm and other addictive behaviors at a young age until I attempted suicide and derailed my life completely, becoming alienated from my family and friends.

Changing my mindset was the hardest thing I ever did, but I had to in order to find happiness and achieve my dreams.  In the past 5 years, I have been mostly medication free because managing narcolepsy naturally allows me to travel without worrying about prescriptions or doctors.  I have visited nearly 30 countries and am currently living in Myanmar.  I found an online career so I can move freely and nap frequently.
