About Me

Hi, I’m Ruth.

My deepest calling is to experience beauty on earth. 

My second deepest calling is to support you in experiencing more beauty, ease, and possibilities in everything that you do. 

My passion comes from my personal journey from feeling stuck, stressed, and sick… to experiencing beauty, ease, and connection. 

(This transformational journey also healed my chronic illness- bonus!).

A quick story about my journey…

I was born a joyful and carefree child who woke up one day in her 30’s and barely recognized herself. I was “successful” and had it all on the outside and completely burned out, bored out, and numbed out on the inside.

I cleared the noise and reconnected with my truth.

Now in my 40’s, I feel more at ease, connected and fulfilled than before. And my journey continues….

I’m grateful that I didn’t ignored the signs from my mind, body, and soul years ago protesting that “something’s wrong.”

Because of my journey, I understand the pull of the noise around you.

But even more, I believe in the power of deep-seated clarity that exists within you. 

I’m here to offer you a process to tap into that clarity.

If any of this resonates with you, I invite you to consider clearing the noise. 

My process guides you to see your truth beneath the noise.


The space where science, mindfulness, and spirituality meets.

I bring a holistic coaching approach to working with the mind. 

My approach is anchored in mindfulness, psychology, neuroscience, spirituality, and trauma-informed practices. 

Note: Coaching is not a regulated industry in many countries, so you will find coaches of various flavors with varying qualifications. You can read about my training in psychology, therapy, and coaching in the FAQs.

Strip away the noise to see your truth with clarity.


Tapping into your clarity

Your Truth & Purpose

What's truly important to you. Your north star that lights you up and gives meaning to life.

Your Emotion & Compassion

How you're really feeling beneath it all. How you've been protecting yourself.

Your Intuition & Wisdom

The whispers and inner knowing that you've been ignoring or rationalizing away.

Your Inspiration & Creativity

What makes you feel moved, connected and alive!

Clarity is the key that opens the door to beauty & ease.

What to Expect

Bring your whole self 

You're the expert of your life

You're in charge of your life. I'm here as your
guide to partner with you - not lead you

You're in charge

The most powerful creator & healer is within you. The final call is always yours

You're not broken

I believe you don't need "fixing" nor do you need a "diagnosis"

You're independent

My goal isn't to work with you indefinitely- but rather set you up so you thrive on your own.

What else do I believe?

  • Our mind is brilliant when our heart takes the lead
  • Stress is not just an inconvenience - it's lethal
  • Uncomfortable emotions carry important messages
  • Unresolved trauma follows us into every present moment
  • Our heart, brain & gut break together & heal together
  • Food is medicine
  • The world benefits from us being our authentic selves
  • We're always learning, expanding, and healing
