COACHING TESTIMONIAL: Shawna is an incredible life coach. She is warm and empathetic but also challenging. I have been encouraged to think about countless areas of my life in a different way – and come through a place of understanding and peace. If you are willing to feel the feelings and work hard, she can help you become unstuck, help you work out next steps – and you will enjoy the process! – 2020 Group Coaching Life on Purpose Academy Member


Getting unstuck!

Did you know that you have tremendous control over your life experience? And I don’t mean controlling the people and events around you. I mean controlling how you show up!

When you change how you show up, you change your whole experience and the outcome of your daily life. 

We will start with awareness of what is currently happening in your life and what you are in control of shifting. 

>> So you can let go of the rest and focus on what matters


I’m not here to tell you the rules of living and the steps you must follow. I’m here to help you get very clear on the values and vision you have for all the nine areas of your life and help you understand what it takes to get there.


When we want to change we might jump right to action – and that can work, at least for a bit.  Until we fizzle out and then feel crappy about ourselves. 
But as you can see there are steps we need to pay attention to first.  Then we can take effective action, the action that is based on our values, and action that moves us towards what we want with empowerment and grace. 

Shawna tells it like it is in the most empathetic way possible. 🙂 Our sessions have made me a better mom, wife, friend to others, and friend to myself. Every piece of her content is profound and actionable. I’m so, so grateful. – 2020 Group Coaching Life on Purpose Academy Member



Okay, but what exactly will counselling/coaching help me with in my mom life?

Here are some examples of the issues I have coached women on over the years:

  • Enjoying your kids more
  • Parenting with more peace
  • Shifting away from negative self-talk
  • Handling your own perfectionism in motherhood
  • Loving the people in your home even though they drive you crazy
  • Showing up for yourself and the goals you want to achieve
  • Being the mom you want to be
  • Handling daily stress in motherhood
  • Reducing anxiety 
  • Having more fun with your spouse and your kids
  • Prioritizing the things that matter to you in your life
  • Improving the intimacy in your relationships
  • Growing in your emotional intelligence
  • Improving your discomfort and frustration tolerance
  • Making big life decisions (and little daily decisions)
  • Shifting into a growth and abundance mindset
  • Preparing for a hard season of life

And more….


Shawna has an amazing ability to ask those she’s coaching tough questions without sounding like she’s attacking, accusing, or judging. I don’t know how she does it–or how she’s acquired so much wisdom at such a young age! I only wish I’d found her years ago! Her gentleness and empathy always shine through, without diminishing the difficulty of the hard work she encourages us to do. – 2020 Group Coaching Life on Purpose Academy Member

Another testimonial:

Are you stuck, aimless, uncertain of what your next right step is in life?

Do you swing from the guilt of the undone laundry and/or boxes piled up in your home yet feel simultaneously annoyed by why that’s your responsibility in the first place? Or whether it even IS your responsibility?

Do you wonder why you’re exhausted at the end of your day, empty-handed in terms of what you’ve accomplished, even though it feels like you’ve done nothing but do, do, do?

Do you ever feel like you’re on the cusp of losing your identity or wonder who you even are anymore…like you’re a shadow or shell of the self that you want to be (or used to be)?

So did I, and let me tell you: not only did Shawna meet me with grace, but she met me with a compassionate, joyful energy, ready to help me get to work. She opened my eyes to MY vision, maybe for the first time in my life. She helped me recognize the lies, the myths, and the fears in my own heart and mind that were keeping me from experiencing the life (and mindsets) that God had probably intended me to have for years.

To think that I’ve only just this year encountered Shawna’s amazing (and so much of it free!!) content and to think how blessed I have been to work with her over the past ~7 months both in 1:1 coaching and in group coaching is best summed up by this unlikely-for-2020 statement: 2020 has been powerfully & positively transformative for me in terms of my perspective, mindsets, assumptions, intentionality, and relationships (marriage, family, & friendships included).

This year I started out in a hard place, with lots of uncertainty, lacking clarity, and with (unbeknownst to me until I started working with Shawna) quite a bit of resentment toward myself, others, and the world. This year I am wrapping up the year in the same job, the same marriage, the same house, with many of the same circumstances, but with a radically, wildly different outlook on my life. And it is making such a difference in my experience of the here & now and in my outlook toward the future.

Don’t let another birthday pass you by…YOU and YOUR life are worth showing up for, fully, as the person that you were truly created to be. And Shawna just might be the coach to help you do that…she certainly was (and is) for me! – 2020 Group Coaching Life on Purpose Academy Member


My Story

Motherhood is relentless, overwhelming and sometimes we feel like we are just surviving.

I had three kids in three and a half years and I will be the first to say, it wasn’t pretty.

I gave up my career, felt lost, restless and anxious. My health, home,  marriage, mothering and relationships all suffered from how I was handling life (or not handling life).

A few years in I learned about minimalism and started to purge my home. As I got into decluttering my home I found myself face to face with all the areas of my life and my heart that needed to be decluttered too. 

I was struck by all the areas of my life where I was on auto-pilot, all the areas I felt unfulfilled and aimless about.

I have been on a journey for the past four to LIVE MY LIFE ON PURPOSE.

Now I want to use what I have learned in my journey, through my years of life coaching experience, and in my training to become a registered therapist to HELP YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE ON PURPOSE!
