    You have too much on your plate.

    Can you relate to this scenario?

    I don’t know what’s wrong. I cannot find time to focus on the things I need to do for me.  If it’s one of the kids or work–BOOM! I’m there.  But when it comes to doing some of the things I need to do for me to feel and be my best, I just don’t do it. 

    I can do the outer things–hair, nails, even a massage from time to time.  But, I struggle when it comes to my health. I’m continually picking up weight, not as active as I should be, and starting to feel aches and pains.

    It’s not that I don’t know what to do.  There are 1,000 different solutions available. But, I just can’t seem to commit. I see other people doing it, and I know I can too. Yet, I don’t. Something keeps stopping me–motivation, energy, time, consistency, fear of failure.  I need help!

    If I don’t fix this now, 10 years from now I know the situation I will be in.  And I will regret it. But yet…I’m still stuck. Doing the same thing, expecting different results.  I keep trying to convince myself that it’s not so bad. But, maybe it’s not today.  However, if the same rate of change continues to happen, in 2, 5, 10 years, things will be worse…and even harder to fix.  I need help!

    I get it….Been there. Done that.  Many times.


    I was caught in the same rat race with the scale.  Losing and gaining the same 10 pounds. And then 15. 20. 25….you get it.  The numbers continued to grow as I yo-yo dieted my way to fat.  At my heaviest, I was 220 lbs.

    I tried to dress it up.  Smile. Put on makeup.  But, I was unhappy.  It’s not vain to care about your physical appearance.  My feminine divine power wanted to radiate at my highest level from the inside-out. But, the shine was absent. And I wasn’t happy.

    I had time and energy to manage life-on the outside. But, I struggled when it came to making a long-term commitment to myself.  I could be disciplined for 3, 6, 9, and even 12 months. But eventually, I would find myself sliding right back to the starting point. 

    So yes, I get it.

    But, I’m here for you.


    What you want is available to you. Expansion is here. 

    Welcome to…

    The 180 Day Immersion to drop the cape and lose the weight…


    Let’s release the toxic BS (belief systems) holding you back, make shift happen and step into a new era of fabulous, fit and free…with ease, grace and flow. Let’s transform the way you love and nurture your mind, body & soul and experience a physical and mental transformation that will blow your mind. 

    This is a 5-step, 6 month coaching program where we are going to shake shift up and open you up to new levels of passion, power and purpose.

    Phase I: The Walk-Through

     Let’s take a peek at the woman within and find her habits and hang-ups, discover her deepest desires for her health and wellness so we can begin a beautiful journey of expressing the magnitude and magnificence of your total divine being–physically, mentally and spiritually.

    Phase II: The Deconstruction

    Flowing from Phase I, we identify the BS (belief systems) that have kept you from being consistent when it comes to your health and wellness  so we can work through the programming and underlying beliefs feeding those systems.

    Phase III: The Blueprint

    And now the beautiful magic of creation…In this phase, we begin to design the blueprint of what you truly desire for your health and wellness, setting baseline standards and creating a plan to bring it all to life.

    Phase IV: The Reconstruction

    Let’s build it…queen things!  Together we put the pieces together to bring your blueprint to life, taking the time and space to truly experience and celebrate the changes every step of the way.

    Phase V: The Move-In

    In this final intimate phase, we shift from we need to “DO” to who we need to “BE” to sustain the changes we have made.  What does it take to truly embody and integrate these changes?

    Who is this for?

    This is for women who are absolutely, positively ready for change and have a whatever it takes attitude.  They know that the change they want is possible and their desire to change supersedes their desire to stay the same.

    These women truly believe in the gifts and possibilities that lie dormant within them and refuse to settle for less than living their best life and commit to making the years ahead the best ever!

    This is for women who are ready to invest in high-level, life-changing, results-driven coaching that passes motivation and focuses on “movement”–> getting you to the next level in your life.  If you are ready, let’s chat.

    This is NOT for women who are unwilling to invest in themselves, are lazy & unwilling to make time to do the work, are very quick to make excuses, and see themselves as victims.

    This is a 5-step, 6-month program that brings you out of the smoke and into clarity with life-changing, mind-altering transitions that will change your life forever. If you fear living your best life, then this in absolutely NOT for you. This is for the woman who is ready to stop imagining their dream life and start living it.

    My Approach

    Hey gorgeous,

    Yes you! Let’s have a personal (yet, kinda public) conversation. I already know what led you here – at this moment and at this time.

    You, in many ways, are like me.

    You have been carrying a lot of baggage, accomplishing a lot of things, and supporting a lot of people. You’ve been the Savior, the champion, the martyr, the provider, the go-getter, the way maker, and the caretaker.


    "Before meeting Aprill I had absolutely NO confidence or self-worth. I never looked in a mirror, because I despised myself so much that I couldn’t bare to look at myself. I avoided leaving my house other than to go to work or if I was finally forced out by a friend or my fiancé. I refused to meet my fiancés family and friends other than his parents for at least 4 years. Aprill’s program has changed my life and I know that sounds so cliché, but it is the truth. Her positivity and strength is contagious. You can’t be around her and not want to become better inside and out. I walk with my head high now. Before I would look at the ground to avoid eye contact. She is helping me build confidence, self-worth, and she is helping me realize that I am deserving. Aprill is what makes her programs different!! She has been there, she has experienced the struggle. Aprill’s faith in my success, from day one has been pivotal. She has seen in me what I never knew was there.” "

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is your approach to coaching?

    My coaching is done-with-you, not done for you.  This means that, although I will be a very intimate, engaged part of your process, you will ultimately do the real work that will make the change.  Here’s a great way to explain the process:  show, shadow, support, integrate, duplicate.

    Show – Through our discovery process, I will show you what you need to do .  This can happen through the blueprint/program roadmap, modeling, teaching, explaining, etc.

    Shadow – As you begin to do the work, I am there with you. I shadow you, from the sidelines, there to help guide, make adjustments, suggestions, etc.

    Support – Having a dependable, trusting support system is critical. I am here to support, encourage, celebrate, empathize and keep you on task in your journey.


    Integrate – Through the process, we begin to embody and integrate the changes. This is one of the most exciting, vital (but often overlooked) steps in coaching.

    Duplicate – We rinse and repeat this process as we continue to follow the blueprint that we have designed together.


    Why are your coaching programs only offered in 6 and 12-month buckets?

    I work with women to get BIG transformations that are long-term and sustainable. You cannot put BIG transformation into small containers.  My process works. It’s broken into chunks that allow us to properly navigate, transform, and integrate to truly embody all of the new changes and vibrations that are happening.

    This is about a LIFE transformation.  No quick fixes. No feel good stuff.  This is deep change that will lead you to a new, fresh, powerful way of living. We build it…brick by brick.


    How is a behavioral health coach different from a therapist?

    Behavioral Health Coaching uses the principles of positive psychology, philosophy, motivational interviewing, and goal setting to assist clients in altering their actions, reactions, and behavioral patterns. (

    The goal of behavioral health coaching is to help you get unstuck. It’s all about action and results. We measure our client’s success with key performance indicators (KPIs) and specific behavioral outcomes. We establish goals, provide accountability and celebrate our client’s wins.

    Therapy will focus on your thoughts and feelings and how they are informed by your past. Behavioral health coaching does focus on thoughts, feelings, and the past to help break through limiting beliefs and thought processes to help shape how we move forward towards the future. Our sessions are much more structured and focused on actionable strategies and visible growth.

    Another difference is that a behavioral therapy coach sets clients up with the processes and skills they need to eventually coach themselves. Coaching isn’t meant to be forever. Behavioral Health Coaches also do not diagnose the people they work with, while therapists determine illnesses and pathologies so their patients can be clinically treated.

    Is there a syllabus for your coaching program?

    No. Much of the program is customized. The only structure is around the Phases. I take the same approach but customize the details based on a number of factors, such as your goals, needs assessments, amount of pre-work, progress through benchmarks, etc.
