Their secure bond provides unconditional support while simultaneously induces their self-discovery of healthy differences. They both value their independence while embracing their sisterly duo.
Their passion to help others began at the age of 22 when they became volunteers at the National Runaway Safeline. During their volunteer experience, they helped mediate high-conflict conversations between parent(s) and their teens who ran away from home. They provided compassionate guidance and solutions to the families in order to work through their challenges and unresolved differences prior to the child returning home.

RELATIONSHIP & LIFESTYLE COACHING FAQS
What leads TO HIRing A Relationship AND LIFESTYLE COach?
Clients hire us for a wide range of relationship and lifestyle goals. A few reasons you may hire us is to help boost your confidence, find your self-worth, attract your ideal clients, improve your communication skills, create intimacy in your romantic relationship, achieve lifestyle balance, overcome attachment issues, conquer self-sabotaging habits, set healthy boundaries, or eliminate conflict, et al.
All of our coaching services are specifically tailored to meet your personal and professional goals. Throughout the process, we offer ongoing support, patience, encouragement, and understanding as you reach your desirable relationship and lifestyle.
WHAT IS THE COACHING PROCESS?
We recommend our clients establish a weekly session via Zoom or by phone. This consistency enables you to reflect and gain knowledge on your progress by keeping the momentum going at a steady pace. We offer 1-hour sessions per week on a monthly plan along with ongoing text message support, tools, and techniques to reach your desired relationship and lifestyle goals.
WHEN WILL I SEE CHANGE?
Change can occur at various rates for each client. Every client works at their own pace when making life changes. Generally, most of our clients require several weeks of coaching to notice a substantial transformation towards success. The greater ambition, the sooner you will begin to live a life you love and cultivate the relationships that bring fulfillment to your lifestyle.
ARE COACHING SESSIONS CONFIDENTIAL?
We value our client’s privacy. All communication and services are strictly confidential between the client and their Relationship and Lifestyle Coach. Any time additional parties are brought in to serve our clients, then we would discuss what specifically can and cannot discussed.
what is THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COACHING AND THERAPY?
The main difference between coaching and therapy is the results the client hopes to achieve in their personal life. Coaching is a solution-focused process that helps clients reach the next level of success by implementing actionable strategies to achieve their future goals. It helps you move from your current state to the desired goal by taking steps forward in the direction that best suits your personal interest. As for therapy, it helps you look into your past life experiences to heal unresolved emotional wounds.
For example, think about driving a car down the street. Therapy would have you moving forward but looking in the rearview mirror. Whereas, coaching will have you moving from one location to the next by looking through the windshield to reach your desired destination-goal.
FUN TWIN FAQS
“We are identical twin sisters born three minutes apart on April 28th.”
WHERE WERE YOU BORN AND RAISED?
We grew up in the country of a rural farm town with a population of 940 people. There aren’t any stoplights or grocery stores within a fifteen-mile radius. We have always referred to it as: “A dot on the map.” One could say we were raised with old-fashioned traditions and values.
WHAT IS SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT US?
We are identical twin sisters born three minutes apart on April 28th. We are Tauruses; stable and grounded as the trees.
When it comes to business, we are fearless and will take any risk. We even have a secret desire to one day own an herbal apothecary boutique. We take great interest in herbs and homeopathic remedies and believe one can cure just about anything with nature. One of us being a cancer survivor, we don’t take life for granted.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY WHEN NOT WORKING?
We love to cook…mostly healthy, but sometimes southern. And, if you can’t find us in the kitchen whipping up family recipes, then we are probably at the gym burning off all those calories to maintain a balanced lifestyle.
Additionally, we both are avid readers. If you were to open our kindles, one would find us indulging in several books at once. Our typical reads could be anywhere from entrepreneurship to learning a new life interest. And for simple pleasures, we enjoy keeping up on the latest fashion trends and hygge home decor.
WHO IS THE CLOSEST PERSON TO YOU?
Our maternal grandmother. At 93, she was witty and unconditionally loving, kind nature, a great cook, well read, always honest, beyond humorous and a lady of manners. She wrote diaries on each of her six grandchildren lives from birth to current date. We feel quite blessed to be inspired by her. She was a true example of why self-development is important.
