We all have places in our life where we are blocked. Working together, we will identify those blocks and find ways for you to overcome them.
Hi! I'm Jade.
I am a young adult and adult Success Coach and I can't even believe how lucky I am to get to do this work. It's the most rewarding and incredible experience to guide young people through difficulties, social isolation, lack of motivation, overcoming shyness, setting goals, developing executive functioning skills and stepping into their awesomeness.
When I was young, I struggled with a crippling social anxiety that led to substance abuse and an inability to manage my life. I missed out on a lot of really cool experiences that lots of young people get to have because I didn't know how to name my issues. I didn't know how to identify my blocks and work through them. I could have really benefited from a life coaching experience early on.
As an adult in recovery from substance abuse I have overcome a lot and learned that giving back, especially to others that are in need of direction is maybe why I went through the things I did, so that I could learn the lessons and pass on the knowledge.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nonprofit Leadership and a background in Behavioral Health. I've worked with teens ages 12-18 in group home facilities and residential treatment facilities. I was a nanny to the stars once upon a time, and I worked as the Lead Care Coordinator for an online mental health platform that provided cognitive behavioral therapy to teens.
What I learned from my most recent work in mental health is that there are a lot of young people that are resistant to therapy, but would like to work with a success coach. Meaning, they aren't sure that therapy is the right fit. Success Coaching is more beneficial for those that already have the answers. They already know what to do they just need someone that is really patient and skilled at guiding them towards solutions and outcomes.
I'm your coach!
A little about me on the personal side: I can recite most every line from The Office. I watch a lot of diy home improvement Tik Toks videos. I listen to hip hop and rap and R&B like Mac Miller, H.E.R, Frank Ocean, Kid Kudi, Drake, and then I also listen to a lot of Pop and Country. I love Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and Tyler Childers.
I live in the desert in Southern California near Joshua Tree. I hike often, work on my little historic homesteader cabin, and believe in a balanced life of healthy eating, being active, spirituality, and then of course eating pizza and binging reality shows once in a while.
I'm dedicated to living my best life. To learning how I can constantly grow and change and become more of myself. I'm committed to helping you find that as well.
