This is a safe place to land and learn and grow and know– that you aren’t alone. That your questions matter. Your troubles and your triumphs matter, too.

I want to know what you’re asking, wondering, worrying about when the lights are out. Because you’re not the only one. Send me your questions privately. I’ll choose a question and post one answer each day on the site (without naming the asker), so others can benefit too.

I want to help you do your life like the rockstar you really are. (Don’t argue with me about the “rockstar” thing. I promise. It’s true. Stick around here awhile and I’ll prove it to you.)

about amy

I’m 40 something and I’ve been there.

I did the corporate scene for a decade then bailed and started my own gig. I’ve worked full time, part time, no time, and over time.

I’m married but was near the brink of divorce once. I have a son but struggled with infertility first.

I went back to graduate school to get my counseling degree as a “non traditional” student when my kid was six months old. Talk about tough.

I’ve written too many eulogies for people I love. Talk about the toughest.

I’ve fought to find purpose in all the wrong places and finally figured out where to look.

I’ve endured christian drama, seen religious trauma and been untangling God from that garbage ever since.

I’ve made some stellar choices and my fair share of shitty ones.

I wish I’d had a female a bit further down the path to shoot straight with me, someone who would be for me and with me- all of me- the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Gandhi says, “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” so here I go a tryin’.

I’d love to help you build the life you deep down want.

And it starts with one core truth. (One I wish I’d embraced earlier.)

The One you can apply now.
