sheila-close-up-240x300Sometimes life moves faster than you can even process whether you are doing the things that matter most to you. Even when you have wonderful visions of what you want to create in your life, there can be more ideas than there is time to execute. Those are the times when partnering with a skillful coach can help you see past all the possibilities and put into place a plan of action to bring it into reality. Sometimes we just need the guidance to keep us on the right path, the clarity to see that we can and will succeed, and the accountability and camaraderie of working with someone who understands and supports our hopes and dreams.

I am passionate about helping you live your most joyful life and I define joyful living as having 5 main components ~ 1) optimal health  2) financial well-being  3) mindfulness, living in a state of gratitude  4) love/connectedness, and 5) living your life purpose, whatever that may be, even if you were told at a young age or somewhere along the way that you couldn’t do that, you would never be successful. I help you reach higher than they ever thought possible.

You are meant to soar! Those creative thoughts and ideas in your head are meant to be realized. That is why you are here. Your voice is meant to be heard, your ideas expressed and your true passion and joy to be lived!

You know logically that you are very talented and really good at what you do, yet somehow one snide comment from your mother, the CEO or your spouse (who happens to be having a bad day) and your off your game, feel defeated, deflated and questioning whether you are on the right path? Only you know what is right for you, yet sometimes our brain can play tricks with us and question our every move, saying we are wrong or not enough. That is where a qualified coach, one who really understands you and your mission, can help guide you back to your center and purpose, remind you of how far you have come, and the value you add to this planet. If you would like to realize your full potential and soar even higher, contact me to see just how far you can go and how much faster you can get there with the right guidance.

I could try to tell you how I help people find their way to greater happiness and flow in their lives, but would rather have my client’s speak for themselves. Here are what a few have to say…



“100% of the time, I feel better, smarter and happier after my coaching sessions with Sheila. She’s my secret weapon for creating more meaningful relationships at work and at home. 

Sheila helps me focus my energy, prioritize tasks and find new perspective. She patiently listens as I talk through my frustrations and gently leads me to my own solutions. Her coaching comes from a place of love and understanding, instead of controlling conflict. After each session, life seems lighter and more manageable. She gives me clear assignments that always leave me feeling happier and more fulfilled in life and work.”  Jodi Heilman



“Thanks SO MUCH for yesterday’s call.  You are like a spiritual midwife to me. (Interesting visual…) I hope you know how special you are in my life. “

“Wow. What an experience. I feel very detached from my life’s drama.  This is brand new. Sheila, you are an incredible coach.  I mean this.   Thank you for your unique blend of detachment and pure love.”

 “My life is richer since working with Sheila as my coach.  By identifying things I sometimes cannot see within myself, Sheila gently guides me to my own truth.  She has patiently stood beside me during the darkest days of my divorce.  I do not feel that I would have made progress as quickly as I have without Sheila’s involvement.  She is a gift to this world.” Jodi Puhalla


“I just wanted to say that I have never connected with a counselor or coach until Sheila.  Even though she encouraged me to let her know about my problems and perceived shortcomings, she concentrated on now and how to be comfortable and happy in the present.  I have since made some decisions about the school I am attending and feel like getting in touch with myself has led me to the right decisions about my future.  I am so grateful for my time with her. ” Ameila Kollier



unspecified-3“I was thumbing through an old journal of mine and I saw a passage in which I was talking about a conversation I had had with a friend in which  she was trying to hold a mirror to my face, but I felt judged and boxed in by what she was giving me. Then I was also talking about a time I had had with you just after that, and you were holding the mirror up, but in this really positive and empowered and yet still very truthful and honest way. I think that is a really special gift that you have – I was grateful for it then as I was writing it in my journal, and I am grateful for it now, and I thought you should know. All people carry beauty within, but in some it just shines so bright it radiates out like light reflected off the petals of a lotus-heart. You are one of those luminous souls. Thank you for all that you do and all that you are.”Juliet Trnka

unspecified-4“Sheila helped me recognize my desires and goals in life and has guided me along the way to achieve them. My experience with her over the past eight months has changed how I look at my successes and to appreciate even the small steps taken towards my goals. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to take control of their life and make a positive change!”  Christine Simontacchi




unspecified-6“Grateful to get to work with Sheila. She always knows how, and in what direction, to delegate to set me up for the next ‘Big’ step. Challenging, yet not too much to be overwhelming to backfire. Taking steady small steps. Which when I look back amazing how far we have come. A powerful yet gentle coach.”

“You are like a mama cat ~ gentle and loving, yet not afraid to grab me by the scruff of the neck and put me back in line when my thoughts and actions stray and go awry. Thank you!” Monika Kovacs



“Before working with Sheila, I was in a toxic relationship that was causing financial chaos and stress. After working with Sheila, I found my strength within, created healthy relationships with myself and others and saw my finances flourish. Now I am working with Sheila to help me with all my newfound abundance and work/life balance. I am a coach myself as well as a coach trainer, and Sheila is my coach of choice.” Laurel Inman






“I just landed my dream job!! I couldn’t have done it without you, I was headed down the wrong road. I am so grateful for your help and guidance. Thank you!” Sasha Davidson, MD




“During every coaching call you had the keen sense and gift of knowing exactly what I needed to focus on and discuss.

You are honest and direct – calling me out on excuses or ambiguity, yet you are kind and tactful.

Your advice on clarity, focus, meditation, and visualization provided the direction I needed.  Your pearls of wisdom are part of my daily mantra.

I will be eternally grateful – you have truly inspired me to live a transformed life. I’m getting closer and closer everyday – thanks to your unique set of skills and talents.”  Myrna Hoekstra


Once-in-a-while you know you’re in the presence of someone doing exactly what they are meant to do. That’s what I experienced when I met Sheila at a conference filled to the brim with coaches.

I sensed that she would be able to take general ideas about my career, earnings, and the contributions I want to make in the world and help me get to the mile markers and vista points along the way.

With her help my vision is clear. I’m having fun and feeling confident in a way that has never been within reach before.

Sheila is a trusted guide who sees and holds a vision for my life that sometimes is hard for me to sustain, especially if I’ve had setbacks, am impatient, or become overwhelmed.

I wonder where I’d be in my career and life if I’d met Sheila a decade or two ago!  Ellen Synakowski

Thirty minutes with Sheila beats any two management books to smithereens.  A short phone session with her leaves me energized about my plans, inspired to reach further, ready to move roadblocks I unknowingly placed on myself, and somehow more than ready to take on my plans without reservation. 
The ability to constructively coach people about their own lives is no small challenge, but Sheila puts the air at ease, punches out the hard questions, teases out the inner conflicts, and nudges me to my own better answers.  It’s her Goddess magic powers.  CC Caywood
For me having Sheila in my life is the greatest gift.
Every time we get off a call, I know I am in a good place.

I come with a challenge and with her looking at it, things just come back into alignment. And it is the most natural thing to keep moving in a way that is making you the creator of your life.

Our conversations make me so embodied and help me see how I am just not seeing things from the right angle. Sheila for me is 100% an empowerment advocate.    Amira Joy Link


I met Sheila (The Grateful Goddess) during a virtual Women in the Workforce event and was blown away by her presentation on the science behind gratitude. I immediately knew I wanted to speak with her more, and our one-on-one talks were profound and moving. Sheila is an incredibly insightful listener and has a gift for creating a safe and trusted space with others. Knowing only a little bit about me, she was able to discern the exact emotional vulnerabilities I was experiencing and give me strategies to handle them. I left our conversations energized and with clarity about how to forge ahead positively in thought, words, and action.  Anne Spieth



Sometimes we just lose our way, forget who we really are and what we are capable of because life has tossed us around a bit, we choose not to speak our truth because we don’t recognize how valuable we are and how much the world needs what only we bring to this earth, we may think it insignificant and not worthy of a lot of time, attention and energy. It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Marianne Williamson, author of Return to Love …


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Marianne Williamson
