Setting Healthy Boundaries
Boundaries are essential for maintaining mental and emotional well-being. They help you ensure you’re honoring your own needs and values.

Welcome to Glitter for The Soul®! My name is Glitter Explorer® and I am the Founder and Chief Glitter Officer. I transform lives by exposing clients in diverse ways to support their overall mental health.
As a Global Nomad, growing up as a Cross-Cultural Kid (CCK), a former corporate junkie, Healer, and Explorer, I have been exposed to many environments and perspectives.
Traveling the world and researching different ways to manage and maintain mental health has given me a unique perspective and different approach when working with my clients as a Transformational Life Coach.
Over the years, I have learned there are MANY ways to heal the mind, body, and soul. It's about finding the right formula that works for you.
Most come to me with an overwhelming need for transformation with no clarity on WHAT they want or WHO they even are. They have tried conventional methods and nothing seems to be working.
My approach is holistic....I see my clients as people versus specific symptoms or victims of a traumatic event. When we are working together, to navigate the blocks in your life, I help you focus on the root cause of your block so you can heal deeper while becoming more in-tuned with your spirituality.
The tools and resources I use are methodologies that have been around for 1000's of years, like Reiki, Ayurveda, and Chakras, all the way to science-backed research.
The work that we will do together is intense and magical. Resulting in an organic transformation on your terms while illuminating your inner glitter.
In 2020 the world pandemic exposed the importance of prioritizing mental health. While I agree 100%, at Glitter For The Soul® we want to take it one step further and NORMALIZE Mental Health and make it a way of life.
Building a world where we as a society normalize living life NOW while exposing our truth is my primary goal. This includes:
● The power to live unapologetically on your own terms in a lifestyle designed by you.
● Becoming clear on your beliefs and values so you can live them loudly.
● Understanding fully how to love yourself, so your cup is always filled.
● Being free to navigate life on your terms.
For too long, we have been conditioned to work twice as hard for someone else’s dream while becoming emotionally broken, physically exhausted, and financially stressed.
If working towards someone else’s dream benefits your own path, then I say keep moving forward! However, if you’re crawling into bed every night completely drained physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and you can’t remember the last time you made a professional choice that benefited YOU, then let’s take a closer look at what YOUR dream looks like!
At Glitter For The Soul®, I believe that it’s time for us - ALL of us - to start living our dreams right now.
I HELP FIND FREEDOM, CLARITY, & SELF-LOVE
The majority of my clients are individuals looking for something that they lost along the way. Their inner voice has spoken up, and they know they need to start listening. I know what it’s like to feel trapped, confused, and unable to give myself the enduring gift of true self-acceptance and love. I unlocked my truth and started living a life meant for me. I found my Freedom, Clarity, and Self Love. And I can help you find yours, too.
Once I relearned how to communicate with my inner voice, my soul felt like it had been bathed in a stream of self-awareness. It was pure magic! Although it was hard work and filled with feelings of every kind, I learned how to get clear on the things that mattered most. I began setting boundaries, worked out my “why” and how to communicate it to myself and the world around me, and gained experience setting and living my intentions. Tougher still, I learned how to translate those needs to my tribe. For some, that meant a parting of ways – not everyone will be on board with your truth. For others, it meant connecting in deeper and more meaningful ways than I ever thought possible. Gaining clarity on who you are is an integral part of our work together.
I wasn’t always a Glitter Explorer®. For years I felt trapped in a corporate job that felt like hell on Earth. My inner voice kept telling me it was time to move on, but I felt paralyzed. Instead of listening to what my soul was telling me, I stayed way longer than I should have. I was stuck but safe. I was secure but stifled and stagnant. I was terrified to make waves. Finally, after tuning into myself and tuning out what the world expected of me, I was able to lean into the fear. Once I did that, the walls around me exploded, leaving a sparkling shower of glitter in their wake. I was FREE. I will help you find freedom, too.
When we are trapped in a world that isn’t right for us and lack clarity on where we need to go or what we need to do, self-love falls by the wayside. I was working 60+ hours a week in a job that gave me no sense of purpose. The constant barrage of stress and inner turmoil took a significant toll on me, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. So, I’d give myself the bandaid version of self-care I was conditioned to believe would work wonders. Spa days, nail appointments, hair cuts, and the like were supposed to rejuvenate me.
If I gave myself what I really needed – like resting in bed and saying no instead of yes – I felt like a failure. I was so committed to the lie of corporate life that I couldn’t see the truth. I had become the person I needed to be to survive this life when what I needed was to learn how to thrive in a life of my own making. What I needed was to give myself the gift of true self-love. Learning what self-love is, and isn’t, is a promise I make to you when we take this journey together.
We are conditioned to be polite, not real. We are taught to accept the kindness of strangers, even when we don’t want or need it. We believe that love should be received openly, even when burdensome.
You don’t have to apologize for being you.
It’s okay to say no, and it’s perfectly fine to put your well-being before everything else. When family shows up unannounced to drop off that casserole, it’s not your responsibility to smile, make small talk, and say thank you. When someone interrupts you, it’s acceptable (and powerful!) to say, “I’m speaking” instead of “It’s okay, go ahead.”
Give yourself permission to set boundaries and not feel the need to apologize.
