About Monica

Hello! I am Monica and I am a Certified Catholic Coach and Spiritual Director living in central Illinois as a devoted wife to Jesse and a veteran homeschooling mother of four (two graduated). I thrive on nurturing relationships as well as my passions. I am a naturalist at heart, finding solace in the rhythms and wonder of created nature, which fuel my artistic endeavors and inspire me to behold and respect truth and beauty not only in every sacred moment but in every human soul. As a former U.S. Marine, I embody sacrifice, duty, fortitude, and integrity, traits that shape my commitment as a Coach. Similarly, as a Mentor and Spiritual Director, I help others navigate life's complexities, drawing on my own experiences to grow in virtue, self-actualization, identity, and destiny. I am a multifaceted soul with a deep constitution for beholding love and purpose, especially in the face of suffering. My journey has led to the call of my commitment to service and accompaniment, weaving together the threads of (re)formation, faith, and relationship into a vibrant tapestry of human meaning made in the image of God.

Work with Monica

Everything is in relationship, and relationships make a person in every way. This is true in our relationship with God, ourselves, others, and even with the things that we have or desire to have. They form us. These formations shape our perspectives in ways that either aid our wellness or that are detrimental to our well-being. We, inadvertently, have thoughts and beliefs about these relationships and perspectives, and consequently thoughts about our Self which can lead us to either a virtuous or a vicious response in our behavior and habits. This is where I can help! In what I call a "space for grace" in thinking - a small moment between stimulus and response, as Viktor Frankl calls it - I can help you process what you're thinking, what you're feeling, and discern how you truly desire to respond. We would discuss, practically, what steps you believe would affect change and lead you to wellness and freedom! I call this Equipping Life, and I look forward to stepping forward with you on a path of transformation by the renewal of your mind! Schedule a call with me today!
