MY MISSION

To inspire others to rewrite their story by being an example of what was possible when I rewrote my own

Once upon a time, there was a little girl filled with innocence, hope, and dreams. She dreamed of living a new life where she felt safe instead of scared, hopeful instead of worthless, and proud instead of ashamed.

Every day she saw her dad drink, her mom yell, and her younger sister cry.

That little girl was me.

But Maybe You Want To Know The Whole Story...
Ok… Here Goes… 

But I have to tell you upfront…
this is not your typical Hallmark Movie.

Me with my parents

Our 4-room Appalachian Mountain home didn’t have running water or an indoor bathroom. But it did have rats, empty cabinets, and a lot of anger.

We had an old wood stove that we used for heat. To get drinking water, we would pack up some old milk jugs and drive a few miles away and fill them from a mountain spring.

My home was also filled with drugs, alcohol, and domestic abuse. I experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. 

the first time i thought of taking my own life, i was 5 years old.

I lived with my grandmother the majority of the time. I felt alone and unwanted. I craved love and safety.

I saw my dad attempt to murder my mother many times. I wrestled guns out of his hands more times than I care to mention.

I endured constant ridicule and bullying from family members and “friends”.

I was teased for my looks, my smell, and my hand-me-down clothes.

My childhood home (It was only in slightly better shape than this when I lived there.)

i started working at the age of 14

As soon as I had enough money, I packed up my bags, and escaped. I moved as far away as I could without leaving the country. I went to Los Angeles, California.

I face-planted in the entertainment industry that looked beautiful but hid ugly truths.

I ended up homeless after realizing my roommate was a bipolar crack addict. Finally, I decided drugs and alcohol were the answer (spoiler alert: they weren’t).

And at last, I hit rock bottom with no way out.

One night, I found myself sitting alone on the cold floor of my cramped studio apartment. I had $388 left in my bank account and was too sick to work.

I was overweight and had been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and clinical depression.

The hope I once had was gone. I realized no one could save me and decided suicide was the only way out.

I felt broken - physically, mentally, and spiritually.

I just wanted the pain to stop.

but the relief i felt quickly vanished as I realized to my shock and horror that 

NO MATTER WHERE I WENT, THERE I WAS.

I had left behind the pain of my past but it hadn't left me.

Smiling to hide the pain

Drugs and alcohol were
my escape

the night i almost
lost my life

is the night I found my way.

I had been rewriting my stories to create new endings for as long as I could remember. Why not do that now?

I asked myself... if life were a book and I was the author, how would I want the story to go?

I finally stopped looking outside of myself for something to fix me and went inside instead.

I discovered how to finally get rid of the limiting beliefs that kept me stuck.

I confronted my stories, ditched the shame and unworthiness, and stopped apologizing for who I was and where I came from.

As a young child, I would turn to books I got from the library or found in the trash dump next door to distract from the horror of my home life.

In those long, fairy-tale chapters I would enter another world. Live another life. Become someone else.

i came from nothing and created everything.

Today, I’m the CEO of the Institute of Transformational Nutrition and The Modern Life Coach School where we’ve certified over 30,000 coaches.


I've advised Fortune 500 leaders, and appeared in media all over the globe. I’ve coached thousands of people and worked with celebrities like Khloe Kardashian.

I’ve sold over a million copies of my best-selling books and co-founded a private group for the world's most successful women leaders. I have the privilege of being a mom and wife to the world's best humans.

I did it all by rewriting my story.

I can help you do it too.

INTRODUCING.....

the STUCK STORY
solution

We are all storytellers. Stories are the way we make sense of our lives. But what happens when the stories we tell are incomplete or downright wrong? We get (and stay) stuck.

You're just one story away...

Cynthia has coached thousands of private clients ranging from stay-at-home moms to celebrities and high-profile individuals to Fortune 500 CEOs.
