my story

Do you want change but no matter what you do one thing keeps getting in the way and that thing is… YOU?

I was stuck, frozen, embarrassed, and exhausted from getting in my way for decades and decided to do something about it.

I was tired of putting Band-Aids on emotional wounds that weren’t healing and exhausted from defending my stuck story.  I was tired of it.  My friends were tired of it.  The guy who delivered my water was tired of it.  It was time to go to the source of being stuck and frozen.  I tried everything, (and I mean everything), and realized this was not a one-woman project so I sought out others who were using consciousness-based practices like yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda.  I spent the last 20 years studying with the most profound thought leaders today like the Chopra Center’s co-founders Deepak Chopra and David Simon, Eckhart Tolle, davidji, Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Dr. David Frawley, Martha Beck, Jean Houston, Byron Katie, Caroline Myss, and Kia Miller. 

I faced BIG changes with even BIGGER resistance and I found out BIG change uncovered even BIGGER problems. 

Big changes like career transition, death, health challenges, relationship struggles, and financial difficulty were catalysts to getting unstuck and I experienced all of them in a matter of months.  I started to notice that how I approached BIG change was also how I approached everyday life. 

BIG questions started to emerge like, “Am I embracing life or am I facing resistance in every moment?”

I became aware that my reaction to BIG change and everyday life determined what happened next and the shift in mindset from, “What’s the worst that could happen?” to “What’s the best that could happen?” was born and changed my life forever.  For decades, I was walking around waiting for the worst thing possible to show up and guess what ... it usually did.

Where your attention goes energy flows.   

Ignited and inspired by my personal experience and a newfound approach to life, I was led to the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA by a synchronicity of events 10 years ago (it’s a long story with a happy ending) where I became a certified educator in the practices of Primordial Sound Meditation, Perfect Health-Ayurveda Lifestyle, and the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga. Since then I’ve traveled throughout the world leading workshops and trainings and teaching others how to move from where we are to where we want to be.

My name’s Libby and I’m a recovering radio personality and workaholic.

My background as a major market radio personality, music and program director to certified educator and Chopra Center executive gave me insight and compassion for the challenge we are facing in today’s world for balance and the need to redefine what success really looks like. I did it wrong so many times I made it right. 

Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know. 

Liberated Coaching and workshops is a culmination of over 20 years of working in the corporate world and the field of personal development.   I’ve reached a wide variety of groups because the experience of being stuck and stressed out do not discriminate. Liberated Coaching and Workshops have inspired and moved CEOs, entrepreneurs, government employees, hospital executives, parents, ad agencies, athletes, baristas, high school and college students and even my Grandma Dorothy towards evolutionary change. 

My mission in life is to awaken, ignite, and elevate as many people as possible. 

I recently trained with globally recognized yoga teacher, Kia Miller founder of Radiant Body Yoga, and completed my advanced yoga and meditation training. This immersion into Kundalini yoga gave me even more tools to support clients in removing the veils and the layers of stress we’ve accumulated and reveal our true nature. 

 

I will help you live an extraordinary life; a life liberated.

Prepare to get unstuck and build strength, vitality, and create mental clarity as we shift our mindset from, “What’s the worst-case scenario?” to “What’s the best that could happen?”
