You're yearning for something different. 

You don't want to feel regret at the end of your life. Because you're not meeting your needs, life feels heavy. Somehow you've become TANGLED UP in PATTERNS that look like OVER-collecting, OVER-buying, OVER-thinking, OVER-reacting, OVER-eating and or OVERwhelm.

I get it. I've been there. 

Want life to be different?


Wanting a different reality isn’t enough.

Are you willing to face the discomfort of change? It's the only way to get to the other side. But this doesn't look like white-knuckling your way forward. That never lasts. Instead, this is neutralizing your OVER-desire in a peaceful and calm way.

Doing less is more.

It's human tendency to create drama and overcomplicate things, especially when we're trying to change our ways so that we can create a lighter life. You're not alone! Ask yourself, Am I open to doing less of what’s not working and more of what will?

Intentional splurging is key to success.

Whatever your vision for a lighter life, if you go the route of perceived deprivation, and anchor into willpower alone, you'll find it's impossible to keep the mental, emotional and physical weight off your mind, body and home. Splurges are KEY, as long as they are aligned with your end goal.

 Are you asking yourself...

âś“ How do I forgive myself for all the "clutter" I've brought into my life?

✓ What strategy do you recommend for daily decluttering, when you’d rather be doing other things?

✓ Why do I find myself moving things around instead of parting with them?

✓ Why does decluttering seem like it’s never-ending?

✓ How do I handle the response, "But I may be able to use it in some way."

✓ Is my clutter connected to my excess weight?

If yes, YOU are in the right place.


"I have DECLUTTERED my house! Everything has its place. Its been a couple of months and I have kept it up. No going back. Space is wealth. I have never felt so abundant in my life. I was someone who did not trust that I could discern what I should keep or let go. It got easy. The goal that kept me going was that I didn't want any of my family to be left with cleaning up my clutter when I'm gone. They now could come in and take care of everything painlessly in one day. I feel so grateful."


"I struggled with clutter for AT LEAST 15 years. With Heather, I uncovered a couple of unconscious reasons that I hold onto things. One was resistance to an ordered house because of how my mother behaved. Once I realized that I was turning "the act of decluttering" into the parent figure, I was SET FREE! The second reason was that as a child my things were a great comfort to me, almost like friends. So of course I couldn't give anything away! Now that I understand this, I've been able to change the story so that I no longer struggle with clutter. For me, Living Lighter is a lot about the psychology of clutter and learning self-compassion."


“Heather makes you BELIEVE in yourself and that you can achieve results. I was on a call with her and she intuitively told me that she saw there was a solution to my problem and I remember thinking NO THERE'S NOT. Heather turned out to be right. She saw the potential, I only saw the problem. I had no idea what was possible for me and how much I could change my life. I am so grateful that I found Heather and took a chance on the Living Lighter Membership”

This is Feeling Light and Right, But I Have Questions...


"The Living Lighter membership has been so helpful for clarifying goals, learning how to take the baby steps to get there and overall just digging deep into personal priorities and making sure that the way I live day to day will lead me in the direction that I want to go. The time spent with Heather is encouraging and positive. She can light a fire in you without ever making you feel “less than”. I am thankful to have found this space." 


“Three years ago, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was scrambling to find ways to overcome it and stumbled upon the Living Lighter community. This has been the perfect place for me to move through my health issues and with the support of all the amazing members, the resources, and coaching from Heather - I lost 40 lbs (!) and have lessened my RA symptoms. I was amazed at how the pounds fell off and the amount of clarity I gained from choosing a different lifestyle and being a part of the Living Lighter community. 


​​Heather is an absolute delight. Her Living Lighter community is supportive, encouraging, and filled with those determined to live a life that feels lighter in all aspects—mentally, emotionally, physically. I love being a part of this community and look forward to all that Heather brings to us each week. If you want to live lighter, feel lighter, and be lovingly challenged to move forward, this is a great place to make that happen. Highly recommend."
