Change begins one

Brave Yes at a time.

Hello. I'm Shawn. I help YOU say Yes to YOU.

If you struggle between wanting to lay down and take a nap or change the world — you are in the right place.

I’m here to help you dig out from the rubble of the life you have worked so hard to create and unearth your brilliance so you can make a bigger impact at home and in the world.

Right now, you may feel completely burned out on … life (work, family, trying so hard).

You may feel a lot of anger and resentment. 

You may feel like you need to burn your life down in order to get it where you want it.

You may even feel a God-sized hole of something missing in your life.

I can tell you …. I’ve been there.

And, you are one Brave Yes away from the change you have been seeking.

You just need permission and I am your Permission Granter.


What audacious dream is waiting to be birthed out of you this year?

Shawn helped me shine a light on my own power.

I came to Shawn from her Wake Up & Thrive Network because I knew she could hold space for me during a vulnerable time. I thought of counseling but it’s really not what I needed. What I needed was someone to shine a light on my own power. She helped me find my Divine feminine, tune in and turn myself on. My work with Shawn was liberating, knowing that I AM enough and I hold the power to prioritize my own pleasure.”
