As a professional life coach trained in transformational coaching, women-centered coaching, assertiveness coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and success training, I help women access their most powerful self, transforming fear and limiting beliefs into confidence and courage so they can create extraordinary lives and epic love. 

My role is to help you create an exciting vision for your life and love life, identify any barriers and gaps, teach you the tools / skills / mindset / behaviours / strategies needed to create the life and relationship you've always dreamed of, and motivate / encourage you to succeed! (Learn more about my credentials.)

Your role is to show up with a growth mindset, commit to your own goals, take responsibility for your life, do the work to transform your beliefs and behaviours, and take inspired action without giving up so you get the results you want!

empowering women

I have a decade of experience in empowering single women. I understand personally the unique challenges of being thinking you have to do everything for everyone while putting your own needs at the bottom of your priority list.


Between kids, spouses, jobs, and household activities, many women are too busy to care for themselves and forget to make their happiness a priority in their own lives. So I help women re-discover their passions, say “yes” to themselves, and create a life that makes them feel joyful and alive.


I have been single, married, divorced, and widowed. I have lost my first husband to cancer, my mother to Alzheimer’s and my father & brother to cancer. I am a single mom who has both stayed at home and gone out to work. I have run two successful businesses. I know how hard it is to create a better life while keeping all the balls in the air. But it can be done. And I'd love to show you how!

"Just a quick note to let you know that not only did I get a job I love this year, but I recently achieved another major life goal - I bought a beautiful home with a treed, quiet backyard in a lovely neighbourhood, 5 minutes walk to Gatineau Park. I believe these major achievements happened because of the work you had me do on goal setting and getting clear. Can't thank you enough!! I love knowing what I want out of life and going for it!! Not directionless any more!!" - Jenny, Ottawa, ON

online group coaching

I offer two life-changing online group coaching programs for women:

  1. Transform Your Life - This program is intended for any woman (single or married) who wants to heal her past so it stops repeating, rediscover who she is and what she wants, and gain the courage and confidence to go after her dreams and create a life she loves.

  2. Heartbreak to Soulmate - This program is for single women. In addition to the outcomes listed above in #1, it also teaches the beliefs and strategies needed to date in an empowered way, find a great partner and overcome any insecurities and fears to have a healthy relationship.

private coaching 


Because of high demand, my private coaching is now reserved for current & former clients who have taken one of my coaching programs.

“I was referred to Karen a few years back, prior to my divorce actually, and I resisted the help. I put off contacting her and it wasn’t until I went to a free workshop and saw her in action that I said to myself ‘why did I wait so long?’

Over the last couple of years, I can honestly say I have grown into a confident, empowered, full-of-life, and motivated woman. Karen’s insightful and patient guidance not only contributed to my success, but in many ways was the catalyst I needed to transform my darkness to light. I have healed many wounds, gained an incredible amount of confidence, and fallen in love with myself.

With Karen’s coaching, I have seen major improvements in my work life, my home life and my overall happiness. I would recommend Karen’s workshops, courses and coaching to everyone in search of transformation and a greater connection to yourself and those in your life (or those yet to come). Thank you Karen!”

—Deanna, Borden, ON


"I found Karen when I was at my worst. Karen is tremendously in touch with her intuition. She is a powerful healer, with the ability to see right through a person's masks, unearthing their innermost needs and strengths. She offers her clients the right tools, she empowers them to find their own inner strength and then, she's able to motivate in such a way that the client is inspired to take on their future, in a new and spectacular way. I can't wait to take the next steps with Karen under my wings. I feel so grateful for her coaching and her healing words."

—Kasie, Florida

"Working with Karen was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. It is difficult to express my true gratitude to Karen and the effect she has had on my life. She helped me to clarify decisions, find direction for my business dreams, build the courage and confidence to move forward and inspired me with her wisdom and honesty.


She always knew what I needed and used numerous techniques (mental, spiritual and practical action steps) to guide me. (All this and we laughed lots too!) She left me with an amazing set of tools and a great sense of strength to draw upon.


If you are ready to make change in your life but need some help along the way, get in touch with Karen. I know that you will love working with her."


—Charlotte, Ottawa

"I was hesitant to ask for help during a particularly challenging time in my life. I was at an age where my adult life was just beginning and there were so many different paths I could follow and forces pulling me in every different direction. After receiving coaching from Karen, I was able to gain the confidence I had been lacking to make decisions for myself. After each session with Karen I felt empowered. I felt like I was walking taller, speaking louder and just generally taking on the world with a whole new outlook. I felt confident and hopeful for my future because I now had the tools she had given me to take on anything that came my way. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome from Karen's coaching and would recommend her to anyone."

Sydney, Toronto

“Karen has guided me through some really challenging times, helping me to see myself more positively, and to believe that I can get what I want. After each session with her, I felt grounded and powerful.


Everything in my life is getting better, and I now have a job after being unemployed for over a year. I have also read her book and love it! Her personal experiences really resonate with me, leaving me to believe that if she can do it, so can I. Free to be me is the ultimate guide for how to change your life. I highly recommend it.”
