Coach Heidi and her LYFE school changed my life. I enrolled in the program after coming to the realization that some of my relationships were not healthy ones. I knew I was a good person with a good heart and couldn’t figure out why I kept drawing projects instead of partners. I consider myself an intelligent, professional kind, and loving woman but some of my relationships didn’t reflect who I was, and I couldn’t figure out why. I had to take a good look at myself. Heidi helped me realize because of my dysfunctional abusive childhood, I had become Codependent and had learned how to function in dysfunction. I learned in LYFE school that my personality attachment patterns were the people pleaser and the fixer. As a people pleaser I would sometimes say yes when I really wanted to say no. As the fixer I wanted to be the one that rescued. I was that Wonder Woman all for the sake of LOVE. Love that I was still seeking as a little girl from my mother. LYFE school helped me discover I am worthy of love without any extra, just being who I am is enough. I am enough and my value is priceless. I have learned through LYFE school how to set healthy boundaries and I have learned to see people for who they are regardless of their titles or labels.

I am FREE and I walk in my Freedom without any apologies, but most importantly I have learned how to Love and honor ME.

I first came across Heidi’s videos on YouTube when I was at my absolute wit’s end in a relationship with an addict. I had no idea how to navigate addiction and had absolutely nothing left to give. I felt defeated. Years of therapy, self-help books, and church wasn’t specific enough and didn’t dig deep enough to provide the breakthrough I desperately needed. I felt hopeless. When I kept attracting the same toxic relationships, I knew it was time to bring in the “big guns” and work with a master mentor/ expert on codependency and addiction. I needed someone to break everything down and do a full remodel. What I didn’t realize is the foundation of the remodel would be inside of ME. Heidi and the LYFE school program helped me find my childhood trauma (even though I’ve been telling myself I had a perfect childhood), define my codependent patterns, take concrete steps to heal, and truly find my VOICE for the first time. Having a mentor and a program that empathized with me and advocated for me set me on a new path to changing those patterns and redrawing those relationships. Today I am equipped to THRIVE.

Heidi is a wizard at getting to the core of deep routed issues and helping people navigate a path to self-love and acceptance by breaking unhealthy thoughts and behavior patterns. She was able to help me change my perspective in order for personal growth and I have since incorporated her curriculum into my own practice as a licensed clinical therapist.

Heidi was not only integral in my own treatment but I’ve witnessed her facilitate remarkable change in many people’s lives. Heidi is one of the most relatable life coaches and mentors I’ve ever been involved with and I am proud to call her my friend. Her expertise in relationships, self-worth/love and addictions combined with her personal experience and humor allow her to teach individuals how to truly redefine their belief systems and change dysfunctional thought patterns and behaviors which ultimately leads to lives of fulfillment.

As the director of an intensive co-occurring disorders program, Heidi has allowed me to be more comfortable in using my personal experience as a teaching tool and gain confidence as a leader. I often use her methods and teachings to promote discussion and I make a concerted effort to emulate her ease of connectedness in presentation style.

Heidi’s expertise combined with her ability to exercise change is brilliant and, in my opinion, unparalleled. Her efficacy is a true testament to the powerful work she does. Just ask any of her students.

I appreciate Love Coach Heidi so much!  She was a blessing to me in the most pivotal time in my life and has helped me in more ways than I can count.

 I am free because of her obedience to do what she has been called to do. God has used her in my life for the greater good. I am forever changed and grateful for her coaching.

 She did a damn good job at helping me recover from codependency and now I can’t help but want to fly.

Heidi is the absolute best at what she does and truly has a gift for this kind of work! I started therapy from a very young age and have seen countless therapists my entire life. Heidi has done more work and healing with me than all of my past therapy combined. From past traumas and anxiety, to love and relationships, Heidi knows it all. I am so grateful for Love Coach Heidi!

When I met Heidi I was in a horrible place. Dealing with a fiancé facing addiction and in rehab. She was the one person who would tell me like it was with no filter. She has taught me about co-dependency and learning how to break free from toxic relationships. At my lowest point, she was the hand that reached down to help me pull myself up. I cannot imagine where I would be today had I not met this most amazing soul. She is passionate about her wants to help others. And she is smart beyond her years. I truly feel that you have had to walk in the trenches to understand how to help pull others out. She is beyond one of the most intricate parts of my recovery and I value her as my coach, my confidant, and my friend.
