My passion is to help you in your wildly busy life to mindfully prioritize and organize your life so you have capacity to spend time with your loved ones; resilience to navigate through life’s changes and stressors; and to create space for your personal interests.

Are you feeling overwhelmed with life’s demands?


At work, you’re constantly bombarded with meetings, emails, screens, instant messaging, phone calls… something is always being demanded of you.

The result is overwhelm, anxiety, and stress.

When there is very little or no downtime at work, it impacts your home life as well.  This costs you your health, quality time with loved ones, and capacity to spend time doing things you love.

This type of living is not remotely mindful of the human being and its nervous system.

Live with more flow and less chaos

How would it be to feel empowered and in harmony with the demands of your life? Create the life you want while honoring the human being you are. Schedule a free consultation with me to start exploring this possibility.

How I Can Help You

When we slow down, relax and organize our lives around our passions and values, we are happier and healthier human beings. Instead of piling on more apps and tech tools to “manage” your life, we use mindfulness, art, and nature to get you out of your “figuring it out” mind, and into a space where answers come easily.

I’ll help you:

  • Prioritize and organize your life
  • Get yourself unstuck
  • Free up time to spend with your loved ones
  • Find  more space for your interests and self care

Meet Joy

I truly believe that if we slow down, relax and organize our lives more simply, we become happier and healthier human beings.
For over a decade I supported high level executives to get organized, and I quickly noticed they were overwhelmed by the demands of work and life which not only did that make it difficult to help them, it also impacted my quality of life. I found myself restless and reacting from an anxious and fearful state to demands that were at times not actually emergencies, but felt like it. I went to work feeling heavy. The days seemed long and exhausting. My nights were unsettled and restless. The toll on my emotional health was heavy.

And, although the salary and benefits were wonderful, it didn’t justify what I was ultimately feeling and how I was responding to others around me. I realized this way of being was costing my health, my capacity to relax, my ability to be kinder to people around me and interfering with the things that I love.

My path became clear to help busy working professionals create a more sustainable life system: a way of working and living more in flow with nature and more resonant with one’s values.


The following poem has inspired me deeply.
The Rat Race

“I don’t want to join the rat race.
Not be enslaved by machines,
bureaucracies, boredom, ugliness.
I don’t want to be a moron, robot, commuter.
I don’t want to become a fragment of a person.
I want to do my own thing.
I want to live (relatively simply).
I want to deal with people, not with masks.
People matter. Nature matters.
Beauty matters. Wholeness matters.
I want to be able to care.”

~ E. F. Schumacher
