Thank you for joining me on this journey!

I’m excited you decided to join me on an adventure of self-discovery and empowerment.

My gift to you is my newest empowerment tool – the Life Desire Workbook, Journal & Planner. 

It contains 84 beautifully designed pages filled with coaching, worksheets, journal prompts and a 30 day Planner to help you declare, create & achieve your desire.

Click on the Life Desire Journal link 👇 to download your copy:


After you click and download, you can save it to your computer.

The Life Desire Journal is a fillable PDF so you can use your favorite electronic gadget and type your answers directly into it.

If you are old school, like me 🙂, you can print the Journal and use your favorite pen or markers.  Either way, use it intentionally over the next 30 days to envision your desire and bring it to life.

👈 Here are some sample pages to give you a sneak preview of what is waiting for you in the Life Desire Journal!

Journals & Art

Journals & Art

My art has been referred to as “Subliminal Coaching” given all the layers of messages, images, words, paint, paper and objects, all  designed to inspire, empower, encourage reflection and provide a space to voice it. Now, imagine all of this goodness on the cover of a journal!

Here’s the deal. If you want to create a life you have not yet been able to create, you must think and take action in new & different ways. You simply cannot achieve different results by doing things the same way!


Coaching Success Stories…

Lynn McNally

Lynn McNally


Through my work with Joan, I was able to completely transform some realms of my life that were bringing me down and preventing me from being the person I wanted to be. Now, I have a clear vision of the path to take to be in the place in life that I have always dreamed of being.

Serial Entrepreneur

I was in a funk with a few key relationships in my life & felt adrift at work.  We worked on a nagging negative inner dialogue that held me back, drilled down on my core values & mission in life & created a “tool belt” of resources to navigate challenges. This clarity catapulted my life into action!  I can’t recommend Joan highly enough.

I contacted Joan to kick some generational bad habits while preserving tradition to become a leader for my family. I found that changing my thinking empowered me, personally & professionally, to discover my best self. I will be forever grateful that her program helped me learn the tools to become a better leader.
