Overcome the internal shame battle and be your badass self!


Hi, I’m Cam.

My passion and purpose is helping others realize their innate worth, rid themselves of shame, and live a genuinely authentic, happier, life so they can confidently do whatever it is the f*ck they want!

I’m an introvert, homebody, highly sensitive person, and empath. I am a professionally certified life coach through The Life Coach School; have a bachelor’s degree from Purdue University Global in Industrial/Organizational Psychology; and have over a decade of experience in coaching, leadership, training, and customer service.

As a messy emotional human myself–who has done the work with my deep and tightly-held shame, and learned the tools and techniques needed to navigate living a happy, confident, and authentic life–I can help guide you through the internal ping-pong battle that rages on in your mind, heart, and soul so you can finally have a happy, fulfilled, and honest life.

When you have self-trust on such a deep level, you can’t help but be confident and authentic in every aspect of your life. Shed the shame of who the world has told you to be and how to live. Stop hiding the incredible, unique, and amazing person that you are; because I promise that once you do, you will constantly be astonished with yourself and the life to get to live.

Life doesn’t have to be perfect in order for you to be happy. You can start feeling better right NOW! In fact, grab my free meditation where I guide you through processing intense emotions so you can feel better in just 5 minutes. Yes, really!

Why I love working with My people

Introverts, empaths, and highly sensitive people are some of my favorite humans. We’re the thinkers, feelers, observers, philosophers, outcasts, goofs, weirdos, creatives, and all-around magical people.

You are an incredibly powerful being that can change the world if you learn how to step out of your own way. The unique strengths you possess are unlike anyone else’s in the world. You see and experience things in such a different and beautiful way.

When you embrace who you are (including someone who watches a shit ton of TV, needs a LOT of rest, and is selective about social and familial gatherings 🙋🏼‍♂️) you light yourself, and the world around you, up. When you step into your own power and own the shit out of everything that you are–including the things you perceive as weaknesses–it leads to a kinder, gentler, more creative, generous, and more purposeful world.

My Story

The early years

I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety when I was six years old. Sometimes it was bad, other times it was managed. I grew up in a Mormon/LDS household going to church each Sunday, attending school while being bullied and being a slow learner, and a lot of time at home being lonely or bored.

When I went away to college at 18, it was my first time living on my own. I was struggling to reconcile my faith and my sexuality, striving for that high GPA studying musical theatre (odd for a shy introvert, I know), and trying to deal with my dad being diagnosed with prostate cancer and my mom working to take care of him. I dropped out of school and almost let all of this kill me.

My grandpa gave me this comic when I was a pre-teen. It hangs on my fridge to this very day as a reminder of rest and humor.

I spent the majority of my life being anxious and afraid–to approach people, make friends, let people down, fail, try new things, and even order take-out/delivery (COVID-19 was a game changer in that regard–THANK YOU delivery apps!!).

A big portion of my adult life, I looked to others for answers. It didn’t matter how much validation I received, I never allowed myself to believe in ME. Even after years of therapy, pharmaceuticals, and accomplishing major personal and career goals, I still didn’t feel adequate or good enough. I started isolating myself, withdrew from my spouse and friends, struggled to feel successful at work, and basically became a numb desensitized couch potato….until coaching came into my life.

Coaching helped me rediscover and live the life I used to dream of and I believe you can do it too

Once I found coaching, started recognizing my value, removed my shame, and decided to stop hiding–it’s like my life had a new spark and there was nothing that could stand in the way of what I wanted (and I actually knew what that was!). Coaching didn’t magically “fix” me (because I was never broken!), but it challenged my perceptions, taught me concepts and tools, and ended up changing my life DRASTICALLY.

I know it can do the same for you because I’ve witnessed it with all my clients. Whether it was getting through a divorce and finding new love; getting into their desired industry and then being promoted (twice!) to their dream career in only nine months; or feeling confident in speaking up for what they wanted in their marriage and in the bedroom.

Coaching with me is magic because it allows you to remove, explore, and rediscover layers of yourself you forgot were even there! My clients and I rediscover old hobbies, go on adventures, reunite with music, and stop overthinking and have more fun. All you have to do is take that first step.
