Who am I and Why do I do What I do?
Who am I? I am Heidi. A Life Coach that has learned to empower herself, hold my boundaries where I can say “no” and “yes” with ease, I call out the “elephant in the room” and I jump! No matter how fearful I may be. I’m living a life full of gratitude, I know where I’m going and I’m creating a life of abundance in financial, happiness and loving relationships. But I spent a lot of unnecessary time, depleted my energy, financial burden and heartache to get to where I am now–
In 2012, I have 6 children. It was another morning of pure exhaustion and everything else that comes from a controlled, abusive relationship. I was watching a situation between my son and daughter where my son was beginning to show the same negative attributes as my husband.
At the time, I was living in a cult-like abusive environment. I lived in the woods and was controlled by my husband. We looked like the perfect family—wonderful husband, doting mother of 6 children, beautiful house and the list goes on. But things are not always what they appear to be. Very bad things happen behind closed doors. I was a victim of abuse in all the categories—financial, emotional, mental, sexual, physical, verbal, etc. Although I had six children, I had little contact with anyone, was very isolated, and had several miscarriages. Growing up, I was raised with old-world beliefs where “you do as you are told, don’t ask questions”. I was to be a good wife who listened and obeyed her husband. It was a “perfect storm” for my husband who could easily manipulate and control me. I was easily taken advantage of because I allowed someone else to take my power. I was exhausted, spent, hopeless and living in pure fear.
The day I had my epiphany had been triggered to an earlier memory—it was morning and I had very little sleep with a newborn in my arms. The other kids were making more noise than usual which woke my husband up and he came out yelling. I looked up at him and began to yell back. My husband grabbed a bottle of wine and threw it at me with strong intentions to shut me up. (Not the first or last time for him to overpower any attempt to empower myself). I turned to shield my baby and heard a loud pop. When I looked up, I saw wine and shards of glass everywhere. At that moment, I wanted to take my children and leave. “If you ever try to leave, I will make your life a living nightmare,” he said, “I’ll take the children, money and make you pay”. (Not in those nice words, but you get the message). I was threatened then and repeatedly afterwards. I was too scared, exhausted and feeling completely defeated.
Both my children and I were in an environment that was toxic and highly dysfunctional and I needed to make a change for both them and myself. It was time for me to make a change, I just didn’t know how. With the help of my “Earth Angel” and a local domestic violence agency (Laurel House), I was able to get out. Little did I know how many people knew there was something terribly wrong going on. Once I started to open up, they were all willing to help. It took over a year to make the escape, as my husband kept to his word and made things VERY difficult for me. The transition was painful as some of my older kids stayed behind and I became “shunned”. To this day, they still refuse to talk with me.
During my divorce, I suffered from PTSD and SAD. It was rough. I was having “trauma triggers” left and right. MY self-esteem was non-existent. My older children had shunned me, I was living in fear of my husband and the list goes on. I was living in shame, loneliness, and depression. I started going to a support group, read all the self-help books you can think of, began affirmations, meditation and yoga. All were helpful in helping me regain my inner strength and to be able to move forward with my life of peace, happiness and confidence.
It took me a great deal of time, heartache and many wrong decisions. Ultimately, I found my freedom and regained my soul. During my struggles, I often wished I had someone to help guide me along the way, take my hand and tell me what to do or at least show me what to do next. I had to develop my own system to recovering and empowering myself to regain my confidence, make my own decisions and get to where I wanted to go(al).
I had been through an abusive marriage and then a terrible car accident. In 2018, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had a double mastectomy and was informed I would need further medical attention. Through my journey and having created “Masterpiece in Progress”, I was able to create my steps and action plan as to how I was going to get through my challenge.

What makes you different from other Life Coaches?
Although we will occasionally touch upon time management and other “business coach-y” things, you have me as a confident, empowered Holistic Life Coach. I work on the inner and outer principals for your success and look at all aspects of your life from an organic and spiritual perspective. We are going to get down to the core of who you are as a whole person and discover your beliefs, desires and core values. I not only help you create the steps necessary to reach your potential, I treat you as a whole person through the mind, body and spirit connection. Through various techniques, I’ll help bring you back to the present moment where your power is. You will once again step back into your own power! Own it and truly create the peace in your life and love the version of yourself that shows up to play this game called life!
I’m concerned with how you are going to reach your highest potential and get everything you want and deserve from life. Your goals are my #1 priority! You may not like what I have to tell you – but you can be sure I will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s standing in the way of your success and how to get rid of it FAST so you can start getting results in record time (and I throw in a healthy dose of humor and inspiration, which always helps!)
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
The Masterpiece in Progress program was created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about claiming back their life. This means not running around all day long, beating yourself up anymore saying: “I can’t do this, it’s too hard” “I’m afraid” or indirectly “I don’t deserve this”
It was created for you to put systems in place within a couple of months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to taking back the control of your life, empowering you to make your own decisions and becoming so confident that nothing can stop you from reaching your goals!
Being through my traumatic experiences myself, I’m known to work best with other people who need a “helping hand”, people who are committed to their success no matter what. Who are super-ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to reach your highest potential and to become your truest self. My clients often tell me – “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it!” Consider what you’ll do with a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to get the outcomes you want and deserve. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: To Regain and Take Charge of Your Own Life!
For what type of clients are your programs NOT going to work?
Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my program and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.) The Masterpiece in Progress program is NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely, financially desperate, at least not right away. It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust the recommendations I give them and do not do the work (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment). If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. Do yourself (3) favors:
- Get some money coming in with a full-time or part-time job at the very least, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on your Masterpiece in Progress assignments and the BIG picture.
- Sign up for the free Masterpiece in Progress monthly newsletter over email email@example.com. The free information will get you started towards your goals until you’re ready to work with me one-on-one.
- Make a point to read the “tip” section of the monthly newsletter. They will give you LOTS to think about.
Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get you started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me) Other types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenge every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you do not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair? I want to give you 120% of my time, resources and energy to help you achieve your goals.

How quickly can I expect results?
That depends on how quickly you can make those inner shifts.

It depends on where you are at that moment with your state of mind and surrounding circumstances. How committed are you to the program.
