Hello and welcome to my website!
I’m delighted you’ve found me and wish to know more about me.
My name is Sonya, but friends call me Sunny! I am a Resiliency Support Coach and I suppose you could call my Avatar “Fairy Guide Mother”. I’m here to empower and uplift you on your journey through life as you face it’s challenges with grace and determination.
As a Resiliency Support Coach, I know from my own personal experiences that every person possesses an incredible capacity to transform those adversities into growth opportunities and a life they love. I am dedicated to providing you with the tools, strategies, and unwavering support needed to unleash this potential and build this resilient mindset.
Ya, so a little about myself? Well…to start off, I’m dang near 60 years old so it’s no fabrication of the truth when I say I’ve had a lifetime of experiences that have taught me a lot about facing reality and not becoming defeated. Some of these experiences were of course, ‘common situational life transitions’ but many of them were not. But, back in the day for all intents and purposes, they would have been labeled as ‘Complex Trauma’ or ‘Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.’ However, I don’t identify with these labels now because they simply don’t apply. So, labels or no labels aside, what’s important is that you know I had no services, organizations or programs to help me process and/or heal my hurts. Resiliency as a skill (or character trait) is not exclusive to me, but one I believe can be taught or learned by everyone. So, a little more about me to further explain this. My life looked pretty normal-normal, maybe even a bit successful in the last 20 years or so. I retired at age 50, from the Financial Services and Insurance sector and will always have an appreciation for the necessity of those functions in society, what it means to be self-employed, raise kids, have a long-term marriage and, well, live a modern life, like everyone else. What isn’t so obvious is that my life didn’t start off that way and it wasn’t a smooth or privileged path to the successes mentioned above. In 1967 I was just about 4 years old, when my father was killed in Vietnam, my mother was an insecure teenager at the time and married a couple of alcoholic and abusive step fathers. I was bullied and abused both at home and in school and well into my young adult life. Needless to say, there was a lot to learn about taking care of myself, growing up and protecting myself. Since then, I’ve had a long history of chronic pain, partly due to actual injuries and mostly due to emotional pain that my body couldn’t let go of. I’ve had 5 ectopic pregnancies and it’s been quite the journey to finding a life of meaning, peace, love and joy. Nor, was it that long ago (2018) I had a left temporal lobe aneurysm or near-death experience (NDE) and lived to talk about it. Needless to say, I know life throws us hard stuff and yet I still love being here getting to live it. It’s the journey each and every one of us are here to take. So, despite the hardship, challenges, losses, etc., we will endure there is still tremendous beauty, grace, peace, love and joy to be had. Every day without fail. And believe me when I say, these are not just words on a page. They are real attributes of my life all the time and I’m here to keep celebrating them.
My coaching philosophy is about discovering true resilience, not just bouncing back, but forward, with a positive trajectory on your life path. I will assist you in healing energetically and acquiring the skills and practices to manage stress, overcome self-limiting beliefs, and cultivate a more beneficial mindset that allows you to move forward in life. I provide a safe, supportive space where we will identify and dismantle that which holds you back from cultivating a deep sense of self-confidence, self-reliance and self-care, consciously and energetically that leads to true resilience and lasting transformation.
As your Fairy Guide Mother, let’s create together a world where you not only survive but thrive, spreading your wings and experiencing the true magic that lies within you, because what you nurture grows.

Sunny, Your Fairy Guide Mother
