The information that River shares is more than just steps 1.2.3. I was aware of the law of attraction, abundance and manifesting, but this has shifted a paradigm for me.  It is about changing old habits, triggers, stories and behaviors that keep us from serving our higher selves and not being controlled by circumstances. It has been AMAZING, MAGICAL and above all, it has shifted my belief system to allow me to get out of my own way and let the expansiveness provide.

Breaking Through Limits to Discover My Dreams.

If I told you that I’ve spent my life going against the grain, you probably imagine that I’ve worked to shake a more traditional background. For me – it was the exact opposite. 

In many ways my upbringing was unusual.

My teenage years were spent in an isolated section of Washington, wild and unattended.  My parents committed to their passion by running a camping club – we had no running water, no electricity and no real community. And while I appreciate that they chased their dreams so clearly, it wasn’t always ideal. Without clear direction, my life could have spiraled out of control.

And at times it did.

Drinking. Running around without guidance. And even marrying a logger before graduating high school. I spent my early years trying to survive.

Moving to California without a lot of guidance, I realized getting a four-year college degree was a way for me to find my path. And although it took me several years, I ended up with a degree in Forest Management and got a job.

A natural student I became studying and being fascinated by systems, transformational principles, neuroscience, and even organizational development. Always analyzing and passionate about finding effective tools for collaboration, leadership, and transformation – I slowly turned my passion into a career – helping hundreds achieve greater success, meaning, and purpose.

But when it came to my personal life butting up against my limiting beliefs kept me from fulfilling my greatness for many years.

For years I felt like I had all the right ingredients, just in the wrong proportions and wrong timing.

After two failed marriages and experiencing difficulties with my current husband that I realized that I had to face my beliefs. It wasn’t really the marriage that was at issue, but more that I had fears about my own success. Never wanting to outshine my family or others, I held myself back. 

It wasn’t until I found and applied this simple, proven, effective system of transformation that I achieved the results I wanted in my life.  This is where the transformational “rubber” hits the road. In your life NOW! Courageously going beyond your comfort zone. Taking that step even though you are afraid…

Today, I am certain that my future is determined by me – not my past results. No matter what you’ve experienced up until now, I offer you a system and a roadmap to your success.

I help individuals and organizations achieve both personal and professional goals. To begin, explore my services and schedule a complimentary session to discuss your needs.
