About Me

Person. Coach. Grower. Writer. Representer. #DesireMap Facilitator. Purveyor of Love.

I work with creatives, brands, seekers, and retailers to build and grow authentically as their best self.

I listen for the gold in others and acknowledge them for it. I'm a big idea fan. I'm great at digging in and following up. I am here to cheer, tell it straight, offer experience, keep you accountable, and high five about it all.

I have been working with small businesses and entrepreneurs for over 12 years to define and expand their brands and ideas. I am just as comfortable navigating a spreadsheet as I am navigating tears. I believe important work comes in checking the numbers and feeling the emotions, and guide people through both.

Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

Love. Free. Connection.

Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

My first few times Desire Mapping, I loved carrying The Desire Map with me through my life- to bed, to waiting rooms, in cafés, in the car. The timing and pace I worked through The Desire Map were exactly what were needed for each step.

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

Our wedding officiant asked us to consider how we want people to feel at our wedding. It became really clear to me: I want them to feel how I want to feel: Love, Free, Connection. I want to create an experience where you know you are celebrating love and are in the presence of it. I want wedding attendees to be free to be themselves, connect with each other, connect with us. My CDFs cleared the way to hone in and tune out wedding planning noise.

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

Everyone deserves to have their soul expressed. Getting in touch with our Core Desired Feelings, being present to them, and making choices from there is profound and aligned with all I know. I want people to spark ideas from a soul place. I love ideas, even more so when they come from a person's clear core.

Testimonials

I have considered myself goal orientated my entire personal and professional life, but I have never been pushed on the why and what I was trying to achieve through the goal. It was the coaching in particular that helped me feel like I had bumper guards and accountability while working on crafting my goals over many weeks. I absolutely recommend.

Stella has an incredibly warm, energetic, genuine spirit about her that made the workshop the success it was. She's a natural at coaching and in creating a safe, supportive space that encourages you to be vulnerable, open, and honest about your experiences and feelings. Stella will guide you through the Desire Map with humor and thoughtfulness.

With the recent U.S. election and the outpouring of strong emotions, I am called to dig within myself, shine Light, and shine to others so they can best take care and move forward. I am diving back into the Desire Map, looking to connect with our deepest desires, and bring that forward in a time of divisiveness and uncertainty.

- If you have 1) worked through the Desire Map before, 2) are new to the Desire Map and have the book and/or workbook, 3) are new to the Desire Map and do not have the book and/or workbook.
