I help high-achievers & small business owners who are secretly unfulfilled by their external accomplishments, find lasting inner satisfaction & peace of mind.
A little about me...
I was born with ambition. My parents were entrepreneurs and I pushed myself to be High-School Valedictorian, Class President, "Most Artistic" and "Most Likely to Succeed".
The summer I turned 19, we celebrated my Dad’s 50th birthday with a hot air balloon ride. A crash-landing left him with a broken neck, me with a broken heart, and my Mom coping through alcohol.
My relentless ambition supported me to become a successful entrepreneur, yet my own private paralysis and overachiever addiction ruled me.
I finally ventured on a quest for my best life. I found the path of my inner peace, how to stay on it & how to show the way for others.
Now it’s your turn.

Cheers for Charis
Before working with Charis, I was feeling overwhelmed and stuck, without enjoying what I was doing or knowing how to change it. I knew I needed a change but was afraid to change anything... Charis helped me understand the root causes of why I was stuck where I was, and shared useful and user-friendly tools to help me address my fears going forward. Charis is gifted at relating and educating in a way that is natural and empowering. The tools I learned feel commonsense but are not something I would have thought of on my own. To think I could have gone my whole life without the knowledge and insight gained from Charis’ coaching! I feel in control of my life more than I ever have. I carry less guilt and fear and I’m more productive. How is that possible? Ask Charis!

Charis is a safe, caring, patient shepherd who provides a space for me to be messy and vulnerable. I leave sessions... feeling lighter and wanting more.

Charis has been such an incredible coach to work with. I didn’t know what to expect doing life coaching at first and I’m so glad I did it. I have noticed a huge difference in my relationship with my wife, friends, family, and work acquaintances. It really makes you be honest with yourself which is what you need to grow and progress... Charis has always made me feel 100% comfortable sharing what is on my mind and has helped me work through things I had no idea were even obstacles in my life! I highly recommend working with her if you are looking to achieve more freedom and to live more fearlessly.

Behind the Scenes
Charis Your Life is a culmination of all my skills and talents — art, graphic design, creativity, communication, entrepreneurship — with the purpose of sharing my experiences and learnings in a way that is not only super fun for me, but ultimately inspires others to live their best lives.
I designed my website (and my emails and social media) in a very personal, hands-on way. I am the writer of my messages, the designer of my doodle illustrations and animated videos, and the creative director of my photo shoots. (Oh and the adorable dog you see everywhere is our 4.5 pound Havapoo named Heidi.)
A saying on the wall of my studio says "Life is Art – Paint Your Dreams". I bought it over 8 years ago, just a few weeks after my Mom passed away. I loved the sentiment, yet I didn't feel I was authentically living it at the time. Well, now I am, and it feels awesome.
